Not sure if I’m a little early but note down the date for rego’s 2016 and jump in early so we can form teams and get our grading done and dusted ready for another enjoyable season.
In other new this season just ended! about 12 hours ago actually and what a season our club had. Our numbers were up over 10% on season 2014, our mini hawks had a wow of time, we had over 50% of our competition teams make the semi finals of which 9 were minor premiers and 6 went on to be premiers. Congratulations goes to our 21A/2, 15B, AA6/2, AA7/1, AA8/1 and AA14 teams for taking our the premiership and well done to our 12C, W16B/1, O35D, and SWF whom after gallant efforts all season live to fight another day and hopefully another grand final. Enough about the headliners and more about the tremendous effort by all our teams. I was lucky enough the sit on the bench with some teams that battled away each week, a win here a loss there and the odd draw but all in all they should be so proud they did their best, learned a little more about the game along the way, stayed fit out in the fresh air and enjoyed their mates company. Thank you to our coaches and managers for all your work, you are the life blood of our club for without you we wouldn’t be the club we are.
We also need the thank the Sutherland Shire Football Association and the Sutherland Shire Referees Association for their most essential and excellent organisation for all the member clubs and Sutherland Shire Council whom have assisted us this season with our facilities.
Till next time let’s keep in mind how lucky we are to have all this, our mates, our sport, our club, our facilities and all those whom jump in and help out, our club is about community, inclusion for all no matter your skill level, your background or any other criteria really it’s about escaping everyday life and just enjoying the sport.
