The Inverleigh Football and Netball Club would like to welcome all members, supporters and club officials from both our club and Bannockburn to the Hawks Nest for this weeks special ANZAC Day commemorative match on Friday April 25, starting 12pm.
Our senior men showed that the good signs from round 1 could be built on, with a fantastic win over East Geelong at Home by 39 points in round 2. Our youthful leg speed and persistent pressure was the difference in the end, with Billy Cations leading the way with an amazing best on ground performance. The whole team played well, but the efforts of Locke Perrett (5 goals), Brad Anderson and Dalton Grundell (4 goals) in particular really got the team up.
The reserves were again gallant in defeat, with inaccurate goal kicking hurting their attempts to get their first win on the board for 2014. Wade Kelly continued his good form from round 1, along with fantastic efforts from Matt DeMan, Jack Sellers and Rhys and Dillon Brown.
Good news also for our under 16 Inverleigh Seagulls this week, with a big 66 point win over Bannockburn/St Albans 2. The gulls were raining goals all day with Max Richards and Austin Perrott kicking eight between them, and Sam Haste named best on ground.
In the Netball, C Grade had a very tight match with East Geelong which ended up in a draw after the final whistle. All of our other Inverleigh sides come away with hard fought wins, including A grade who welcomed three new players for their first game with the Hawks, who all settled into the game quickly. We are now looking to get players settled into A & B Grade sides for the rest of the season.
Our first social function for the year was a big success, with nearly everyone who attended getting involved in the Rubik’s cube theme. It was a very colourful, fun and entertaining evening that really gave new members at the club a great opportunity to be welcomed.
Good luck to all our players for both Netball and Football in this ANZAC Day round. Our club is proud to be a part of such an important occasion.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.
We would like to give a big Thank You to our major sponsor Wettenhalls for continuing their support into the 2014 season.
Thanks to our 2014 Sponsors
