It’s sponsors day today. Each & every sponsor plays a vital role in the success of our Club. Thanks for your commitment to community sport. We believe having a presence in the Gippsland League is good for footy & netball in East Gippsland. Your support makes it possible.
A special welcome & thank you today to Redlegs & Bulldogs legend, Brian Royal. Among his many accolades including All Australian, Western Bulldogs Team of the Century, Victorian representative & Charles Sutton Medalist, Brian is also a much revered member of our 1981 LVFL Premiership team. Brian is guest of honour & keynote speaker at our sponsors lunch today. We thank Brian for making a special contribution and a memorable occasion today.
In the end, it all came down to a kick after the siren last week where our best possible result was a draw. A 5 point loss signalled a game of missed opportunity. The twos had a great win and an injection of youth in our forward line changed the game. Well done to the 3’s players who doubled up after playing in a commanding win earlier in the day. Our 4ths won convincingly. Well done to the players who went over & stepped up for Morwell & to our coaches who saw the benefit to all of this happening.
In a tough day on the courts for our netballers, our A’s showed how much they’ve improved across the first round since meeting Morwell in rnd 1, our B’s had a day they’d prefer to get out of their mind and move on and our C’s worked at it all game against the top 3 Tiges. The 17’s pushed a finals contender all game only to fall short. Our 15’s won a really important battle with the Tigers to leave them 1 game clear in 5th and our 13’s played strongly to win and hold firm in the top 3.

If ladder position means anything, today promises a full day of close and important battles in both footy and netball. In every difficulty there is opportunity. You can either make an excuse or make your move.
