Round 1 Colts Report

The Lindisfarne Colts, after a slow start to their training this year, missed out on playing at Oatlands last weekend.  Fortunately, some of those who had been training were given a game in the Reserves side. Colts training is continuing, with many now returning to football after a fairly long cricket season, which saw all four Lindisfarne Cricket Club TCA sides playing in the grand finals.  Well done to LCC Coach Andrew Downton, LCC CLUB Captain Brendan Drew and the boys for wining the A-Grade and C-Grade cups.  Congratulations also to Kim Dillon for getting his 500th wicket for the LCC during the finals. Now that celebrations have subsided, we welcome back our younger players to the Nu-Jet Blues in what is slated to be a good year. As with all clubs, new players are welcome and training is on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6pm at ANZAC Park, Lincoln St Lindisfarne.

Presidents Update July 2010

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.

Round 10 Colts Report

Saturday saw the colts travelling to Cygnet, for what looked like to be a close encounter taking in consideration previous results.
 
We were greeted by light rain, but the oval was in the good condition and there was no wind to note.
 
All day it was a close encounter with both sides swapping the lead several times but unfortunately we found ourselves on the wrong side of a 3 point margin at games end.
 
Better players included Shaun Frogson, who kicked 5 goals at full forward, Jordan McCullam, Ian McKenzie and Bodie Savage through the midfield and Luke Alsford down back.
 
We now head back to the track looking to work a little harder and keep improving.
 
 
Note:  Friday night the U18's and U15's will be playing a mixed match under lights at Anzac Park kicking off around 6pm.  All players and supporters welcome.
