Presidents Report 2018

I would like to thank all the players this year.

You should be very proud of yourselves. I know that your parents, helpers and everyone else is very proud.

We have so many helpers which I have thanked personally. Basically you know who you are. We thank you.

Had a few changes this year. Firstly, our new webpage and Facebook page which has provide information easily to all the members. Playing more than double the games on Hands oval which the players loved, in total 55 games. Which causes more work, but enjoyment in watching the players exploring our great oval. Especially the night games on a Thursday and Friday.

Players Teas which gave the players approx. 400 meals in total over three occasions, there is certainly a call for more next year.

The Senior club asked us to handle the merchandise, which was handled by Peter, as always done well.

Then we had the Canteen in the finals, well done Kelli and all the crew who helped great effort.

To the mighty team of the Auskickers, led by Gavin Hayres, great job. All I got from parents was nothing less than fantastic.

Steve Kirby and parents with the Footy Champs on the Friday night, small group but a lot of fun. Smiles on faces.

Players and parents in the club rooms having a meal and enjoying their club was very pleasing. To Loretta and Bomber, as always did the job with ease.

We had a lot of junior footballers and we encourage more next year.

To the young men and ladies who stepped up and played senior footy, well done. Hopefully we have given you great grounding to play many games of senior football.

To the coaches and managers, you are the blood of our club. Doing the job which everyone wants to do, but are too scared. Done with great passion and at the same time decorum, which is required in the junior environment.

We thank the senior club in our strong relationship, it’s great on occasions to gain your assistance and working together. As a junior club we are very fortunate.

In 2019 things will change, but I am not concerned. Our committee is ready to go and keen on anybody helping out.

So lets get more young people enjoying our great AFL game.
