Round One Awaits

Round One has arrived and all teams are primed for big performances to start the year. Players have been fine-tuning in recent weeks as the season approached and now we are ready. I think it is fair to say we shall see some fresh young faces making their debuts on the weekend but I haven’t sat on a selection committee since the 1970’s so I am probably no judge. But I do know we are going to be a fit side as everyone has trained hard since before Christmas.
Note that the Seniors and Reserves are playing at Princes Park at 2 pm and 11.40am respectively. They will be taking on AJAX who don’t get the use of Albert Park for a while yet. This means we shall be playing three of our first four games at home although this weekend is an away fixture.
The women take on Hampton Rovers at Trevor Barker Oval. The game is scheduled to start at 11.45am. Their Division is a bit of a Bayside bonanza with Old Brighton, Beaumaris, AJAX and Old Mentonians in the draw.
Unfortunately, the club won’t be fielding an U/19s team in 2018. This was a tough call but made in the best interest of the club. Every effort will be made to field a side in 2019. After a couple of years of finals footy it is disappointing but we will bounce back.
