What a fantastic start to the season! It was great to see everyone down at the hangar on Saturday watching as all four sides took the field across the day. It made for a sensational atmosphere.
The thirds started the day and kicked the dew off the ground with a win against Cerberus. The under 19s followed and fought hard, but were unfortunately beaten by Chelsea Heights.
Prior to the reserves match, the club was excited and proud to raise the 2013 Division 2 Reserves premiership flag. It was a great moment for the club in it's short history. The reserves then took the field and played a very consistent game that produced a convincing win against Hampton.
As The Last Post played through the speakers, the Australian flag flew at half mast. After a minute silence and the oath, the seniors commenced and treated the crowd to a thrilling match, aslo against Hampton. It was close all day until a couple of late goals got the boys across the line.
Full match reports from the coaches will be uploaded this week.
Our netball girls came away with their second win of the year against Mt Waverley. They are looking strong and are bonding very well so far. We want to keep encouraging them to attend club events so if you see them around, please introduce yourself and try to get to a couple of games during the year. We want them to feel welcome.
On top of everything else that was happening, we also managed to squeeze in our sponsors day. We had a few attend which was great. It was also good to share the luncheon with club & committee members.
A big thank you to everyone who helped out with setting up and running the day. It is very much appreciated. The on-field and off-field success of this week has set the club up for a sensational season. Let's now set our sights on Round 2 and Springvale Districts!
