Round 5 Presidents Report

Round 4 completed, and we are heading into Round 5. Wow!

The ladders are starting to take shape as we continue to
play through the rounds, the competitions remain relatively wide open
while players continue to show their skills and determination on the football field and netball court.  

Umpire’s week, is coming up, on May 6 -12th. this is also a reminder the umpires for both Football and Netball should not be abused for decisions made in a game. Many of the umpires volunteer their time and effort into making our games happen and all players, club officials, and spectators need to respect the role the umpire plays in making the match happen in both Football and Netball.

Over the next couple of weeks, we will be acknowledging the Club Volunteers. Volunteers are the lifeblood of all small community organisations and without them Football and Netball across our region would not happen. We owe a great deal to these volunteers.  THANK YOU.

The future Rising Stars in both football and netball are also being acknowledge over the few weeks. Its great reading about them and what their future and goals are.

Congratulations on the Junior netball Players that are going to represent the WDFNL at the Western Association Netball Championships being held in Ballarat in June.  There was an overwhelming number of junior netballers that tried out and I congratulate you all. Congratulations to the Coaches – Steph Townsend, Kim Jamieson and Tanya Suggett on your position and good luck during the netball champs.

After many years, we have a football Junior Carnival returning. Over the last few weeks, the junior footballers have met at Allansford for training sessions. Congratulations to Tim Nowell the Under 17 Coach and Corey McLaren the Under 14’s Coach. Under 17 will be playing at Alexander Park in Portland and Under 14’s at Heathmere.  They will be completing against Hampden, SWDFNL, and Wimmera Leagues. Well done, to all the junior footballers that made the teams and good Luck on Sunday 5th May.

Have a great day of football and netball
