The season is now 2/3 of the way through, and after Saturday’s game against Dodges everyone is looking forward to a weekend off with the bye.
All three sides have shown positive signs this season. It has been particularly pleasing to see the continual improvement, in particular by the colts and seniors.
The seniors showed last week that they can compete with everyone in the competition, having a solid display and taking it right up to New Norfolk. The reserves have been solid all season and I am sure will get over the minor hiccup they had against New Norfolk last week. The colts under Scotty Bester have become a solid unit and should win more games before the season’s end.
We still have 3 home games to go and are always looking for extra help on match days. It takes a lot of help to run the club on home games. This includes finding bar staff, canteen staff, 4 people to man the gate, people to sell the raffles and margin tickets and a couple of people to man the BBQ and wet area. On top of this, on the football side we need 3 match managers, people to man the scoreboard and time-keep in each game, water boys, trainers, interchange stewards and at the start of each day people to set up the ground. The day finishes off with people cleaning the ground and clubrooms. In this context I’d like to thank those people who tirelessly help each week, they have done a great job.
If anyone reading this letter can lend a hand for an hour or so please let me know. Extra help is always most welcome.
Finally I’d like to wish the three sides all the best for the last part of the season, in what we hope is a lead up to another finals campaign in each grade.
