Hello members, sponsors and supporters,
Season 2023 is in full swing and what a fantastic start to the season it has been.
Firstly I would like to thank our wonderful sponsors. Their amazing support of our community club is incredible, and without them we wouldn’t be able to field men's, women's and a dozen junior teams.
Our Senior Women had a tough time with the grading, but have settled beautifully into Div 3, and have had a couple of great wins. Super coach Stuart Craven continues to do an amazing job.
Our Senior men’s team have got into the groove with five wins in a row, following a loss and draw to start the season, to currently sit third. Development of our young stars continues to be a priority, and seeing Under 18s such as Chris Tainton and Jye Hawkins playing great senior footy bodes well for the future of our great club.
Trev’s reserves have struggled early after playing off in last year’s grand final, but improvement is expected, and a run at the finals is on the cards for the rest of the season.
The juniors are all in full swing now, and there is no shortage of football to see on any given weekend.
Socially we have some big events coming up. On Sunday 4th June we are playing Newcomb, and hosting the 2nd Geelong Big Freeze. Last years event raised over $64,000, and this year’s event looks to be even bigger. Graeme Reid and his band of helpers are running it, and we’d love to see everyone down at the ground for a fantastic day of community engagement.
Finally a massive thanks to all of our club volunteers. It takes an enormous amount of manpower (and womenpower) to run the club, and any involvement, big or little, is greatly appreciated.
