In 2016 saw the continued development of a core group of young players and increased success for senior, finishing 3rd on the ladder, winning the first final and losing in the preliminary final to the eventual premiers. Coach Alan Ezard (Dual Essendon premiership player) has recommitted for the next 3 years and is excited about the opportunities next season. Our reserves finished second on the ladder earning a preliminary final appearance, with a heartbreaking 1 point loss in extra time. Both our Women's and Under 19's sides were very competitive just missing finals. 2017 will be a great time to be around the club with our 50th year anniversary of the club and continued development of all sides.
Training is back in action Monday's and Wednesday's Starting at 6pm. Come on down!
