Round 18 - Teams & latest news

Fri 25th of August at 9:36 am Image

It’s the last home and away game for the season and we will be hosting Northcote Park in another battle for the Melican-Anderson Trophy.


The seniors have locked in top spot after last week’s win over West Preston-Lakeside and the reserves will finish second or third, depending on tomorrow’s result. The under-19s will finish on top with a win over Northcote Park.
There are five changes to last week’s senior side with Jack Bianchin, Anthony Doherty, Nick Lynch, Daniel O’Brien and Josh Totino returning. They replace Ned McKeown and Hamish Paynter (both injured) and Shaun Lumsden, Tyler Peirce and Travis White.

Let’s celebrate the end of the home and away season and enjoy a pre-finals drink at De Winton Park this Sunday.
There will be heaps of sport on our two big screens, including an exciting last round of AFL footy, racing and Test cricket.
The rooms will be open from 10.45am and there is a small entry charge ($10). Finger food will be served throughout the day and pots will cost just $4.
No need to RSVP…just turn up!

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.

Congratulations to Macleod 2 who scored a thrilling one-goal win in the semi-final over Epping last week to move into next Friday’s Grand Final.
