ANOTHER HUMONGOUS ROUND OF FOOTY AWAITS
Where do we start? Another enticing weekend of footy awaits for the Magenta and Black faithful. We have the boys/men/lads taking on Mazenod on Saturday and the girls/women/ladies up against Beauy on Sunday.
Let’s start with the blokes who can just about ensure 2019 is played in B Grade by defeating Mazenod. After going so close against Uni Blacks in their last game, Wardy’s Warriors will be looking to go one better. The weeks’ bye will help get rid of the niggles and it will be all guns blazing at Central Reserve. We have been kicking better scores of late and this has been reflected in our results. It also demonstrates that we have been working better as a team. And if we again show our fighting spirit, we should come out on top. This is not to underestimate Mazenod who will also be treating it like a grand final. We need to play our best football.
After a stirring victory last Saturday, the Hearts take on Beaumaris on Sunday at Trevor Barker Oval (2pm) in the Preliminary Final. If the girls bring the same level of commitment and desperation, they will go close to winning. The girls didn’t beat Beauy during the year but nor had they beaten Brighton until last week. So it will be a great game and all supporters are encouraged to get along and make some noise.
The next luncheon will be taking place on the 18th of August. As this is the last home game for the boys, it will be the last chance we have to get together. Contact Peter Bowring to RSVP –

The next major social function is the time honoured AFL Grand Final breakfast. Lawrence Mooney heads an all-star cast of comedians that will once again get the day off to a great start. We are once again at the magnificent Grand Hyatt who look after us so well every year. Tickets are only $165ph or $1,550 for a table of 10. There are discounts for Uni students and players. Book with hyxy at email@example.com
All supporters are invited to gather at Hotel Brighton after the last game of the year against Beaumaris. They are a good sponsor and it will be good to reflect on the year over some refreshments and fare.
The PRESENTATION NIGHT this year will be held on the 12th of October and will be held at Brighton International – more details to come.
