Round 16 - Teams & latest news

Fri 11th of August at 9:06 am Image

We head to Montmorency looking to maintain our grip on top spot.


There are a few changes to last week’s side with Nick Lynch and Travis White returning and Tyler Pierce from the under-19s will be the 23rd man. Congratulations to Jai Swainger who will make his senior debut. They replace the injured Anthony Doherty and Josh Totino while Jake King has returned to retired life.

Jo Esler has kindly put her hand up to coordinate the purchase of new tables.
The tables fold like a table tennis table, are on castor wheels and will be easy to store. They cost $395 each and if you or your business care to donate you will receive a plaque with your name (or your business name) on the table. It will be a permanent reminder of your support.
If you can assist or you would like more information, call Jo on 0418 458 182 or email her on Get in quick, they are going fast! Also note for businesses, your purchase is tax deductible.
Thanks to the following people/businesses who have purchased a table:
• Insurance Advisernet Australia (Leigh Moulden)
• MBR Tree Care (Michael Rodwell)
• Hurley family
• Lynch family
• TBB Bookkeeping/Picture of Fitness (Manuel/Esler family)
