LFC Good Sports Level 2





8 April 2011

The Lindisfarne Football Club has an ongoing commitment to responsible alcohol management and has recently re-engaged with the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program.  The club’s Level 2 accreditation has recently been reviewed and reinstated, allowing the club to now work towards level 3 accreditation in the program.

The program provides leadership and support to community sports clubs throughout Australia to manage alcohol responsibly. It aims to help clubs become more viable by creating a safe and friendly environment whilst addressing their duty of care obligations in relation to alcohol consumption. It is the first nationwide alcohol management program of its kind.

As part of Level 2 accreditation, we have implemented practices around responsible alcohol management including the development of safe transport strategies to ensure our members get home safely. Our facilities will continue to be smoke-free and the emphasis for player awards, fundraising, prizes and functions will not be alcohol. Food will be provided when alcohol is served and we will sell a variety of low and non-alcoholic drinks. All our bar staff will be RSA trained.

We are confident our efforts will continue to improve the environment at Lindisfarne Football Club. We are working to ensure the Club is a great place to participate and socialise for all members of our community.

The Club will be regularly monitored to ensure we comply with the program. It is the responsibility of all our members to make sure we do the right thing when drinking and enjoying ourselves.

The Good Sports program is run in Tasmania by the Australian Drug Foundation with the support of the Tasmanian Government and the Department of Health and Ageing.

Two Blues to Mark Milestone




Two Blues to mark Milestone


This year marks the 100th birthday of the Lindisfarne Football Club.

With 100 years of history to celebrate, the Club wants to perform well on the field this year as well as mark the milestone with a dinner in July.

While all three teams had mixed success throughout 2010, the Club acknowledges that injury to many Senior players left our club a little short-handed.  In true Lindisfarne Football Club tradition, however, the young-bloods stepped up and proved that they are the true future of the Club.

With the Colts missing out on the finals, they showed a huge improvement over last year, finishing four spots higher on the ladder. 

The Reserves finished fourth in their competition but lost the Elimination Final against a very strong New Norfolk side.

The Senior team, fielding 10 first-year players, including two Colts, fought hard in a devastating loss to Huonville, ending their finals aspirations.

As a result of aging players leaving the club, Lindisfarne now boasts a new, vibrant and motivated Senior line up.  Combine this with new Club Coach, Adrian Goodwin – who brings a wealth of State League coaching experience – Lindisfarne should prove more successful this year than in 2010

The Club’s off-field structure has also undergone a change, with long time Board members making way for a group of young players and ex-players.

With only the President and Brent “ Ned”  Kelly continuing as Vice President aged over 28 – actually quite a bit over 28 – the new Board of Management comprises a new generation; putting in place a quality future for the next 100 years.

“With younger current players and ex-players being elected to key positions as well as holding all the non-executive positions of the Board, the members, sponsors and supporters of the Nu-Jet Two Blues can feel encouraged by their players’ commitment to the Club,”  the newly-elected President Jack Potter, 42, said.

While is often said that younger is not necessarily wiser, Mr Potter disagrees. “The Board of Management comprises a recently retired senior clerk from the State public service, an investment manager for a fund management company, an IT and security specialist, a chartered accountant, a web- and graphics designer, an electrician, the owner of a successful landscaping business and a lawyer who is studying for his Masters’ Degree.” he said.

With ANZAC Park’s No2 Oval recently being given a serious overhaul, Mr Potter hopes the repeat of the 2009 heavy rain, which resulted in the ground being closed for several weeks, can be avoided.  “With the new drainage the Clarence City Council, with assistance from Sport and Recreation Tasmania, has been able to provide, the prospect of losing home games due to ground closure is reduced.  Obviously, this assists us in continuing our positive cashflow into the 2011 season” he said.

On the current playing list, Mr Potter was also upbeat. “We have signed some good and enthusiastic young players,” he said.  “These young blokes, as well as some newly recruited experienced players, including one from North Cairns and one from Edgewater in Western Australia, augments what is already good depth.  Of course, the loss of one key forward to the Old Scholars’ competition and the retirement of three more key players last season hurt us but the attitude these new blokes bring to the Club is heart-warming and we can take pride in our playing list.”

When asked about whether the Two Blues can still mix it with the top end of the ladder, Mr Potter laughs, “Our players are keen to play footy with their mates and to play for Lindisfarne, not themselves.  Of course,” he added, “if you go into any contest with the right attitude, giving your best to your teammates and your Club, you have every advantage over the opposition.  That’s all we ask.” 

The Two Blues want to forge a solid team into the next two-three years and use this very important year, its Centenary, as a springboard for that future success..

Lindisfarne welcomes Nu-Jet as the new club Naming Sponsor for the next three years.  Ex-player and Nu-Jet proprietor Mick Belcher wishes to thank all existing clients for there custom.  Nujet offers specialist technology in drain cleaning, lining and repair.  Please contact Nu-Jet on 6228 6886.

The club also wishes to thank long-time Club Sponsors The Willows Tavern and Scott Devine Welding ‘n’ Fabrication, Kaye’s Fencing and Tassie Fridge Seals.  New sponsors for this year include All-Seeing Eye Security, Wellington Landscapes, MoneyWise Financial Services and Smick Builders.

Membership and sponsorship packages are available from the Club by calling Paul Jackson on 0409 963 061.

The Club will be holding a Centenary Ball at Wrest Point Casino on the 9th of July with invitations soon to be sent out to past players and sponsors.  Numbers are limited to 180 guests.

As time has gone on, contact details for many players are no longer valid.  Past players wanting more information and to register expression of interest in attending the Ball should pass on their contact details, preferably their email address, to any of the contacts below.
