What a year to remember. It was fantastic to have the teams full of current and past talent.

A big thankyou to the return of the many local legends; Marcus Healy, Ben Gregg, Jase Hahnel, Marc Hahnel, Brad Vallance and Andy Jardine just to name a few.

The club extends condolences to Dean Jardine and Lawrence Angwin who were unable to finish the year out due to injury. We are eagerly awaiting the return of Deano and hope Lawery can still find time to share his expertise with the players in the coming years.

We must not forget the countless hours of preparation and effort that goes into a season of coaching teams, preparing for game day/trainings, and ensuring the upkeep of our club. Many thanks to our coaching staff, trainers, water-boys and runners. Their efforts throughout the year have been greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately it wasn’t to be for the Senior and Reserves Football sides. Although it is disappointing not to come home with a flag in all grades, we should focus our attention on the fantastic work done by Dom and his Under 16s team. It is a credit to the club that we have such a strong up and coming talent pool. It is a tribute to Ouyen United that we achieved so much during the season with an entirely local club.

Finally, it sometimes goes without being said, but without the strong support from wives, girlfriends, local supporters and sponsors, we wouldn’t have made it as far as we did. It is a credit to our community that we have the most dedicated supporters in the league.

All this wouldn’t be possible without the direction and drive from our strong committee. Their behind the scenes work and, at times, thankless endeavour and commitment to the growth and development of Ouyen United is testament to the dedication of our local people.

Thank you, from all the players at Ouyen United.

Here’s to the 2015 season. Go Dees!

NETBALL GRAND FINAL

Not since 2002 has Ouyen United had A, B & C grades lining up for Grand Final action. Club spirits were high as the red and blue clad supporters flocked to Underbool to watch the Under 16 footballers and the three Senior netball teams. The level of Club support at all matches was immense showing the reality of the #proudtobeunited tag.

With the Under 16s match won and presentations made, it was over to the courts as A Grade was introduced to the crowd. The introductions were added to with the announcement that Tsharni Burns was playing her 250th A Grade game – a massive achievement and worthy of the applause given.

A Grade – Knowing Hopetoun’s strengths, the girls started positively and the game was looking set to be a close tussle. However, Hopetoun’s intense pressure soon made it difficult for United to score and rebound. The Devilettes were on fire. Esther and Tsharni worked brilliantly with second and third efforts to win the ball in defence. Pure G and D from Bree, Belinda and Lauren in the midcourt opened up channels to goal and the Dees made some inroads into the first quarter deficit. Well challenged by tall, tight defenders, Ellie and Ashlee put up some beautiful goals and the Dees kept pace with Hopetoun for most of the final three quarters. Bree, Tsharni and Lauren won the awards for sheer bulldog efforts, giving no quarter. Whilst it wasn’t United’s to win this time, the girls can be proud of their achievement and can look forward to 2015 and a third successive Grand Final appearance. Ouyen United 28 - Hopetoun 39

B Grade – These two teams had shared the honours throughout the year and were primed for a titanic struggle. United made a nice start and looked to settle early but this was soon eclipsed by Hopetoun’s better accuracy and close checking. Teghan and Kelsey were athletic in their midcourt defence and attack to send the ball goalwards. Cara, Jaimee and Caitlin regularly deflected Hopetoun’s entry to goal. Still with hope, the girls gave everything in the final quarter and played their best netball of the day as Jess and Janine worked even harder to build on the score. Teghan, Cara and Caitlin won the awards for their constant efforts and voice throughout. Unlike 2002, the girls didn’t get the blue ribbon but, like A Grade, are keen for another shot next year. Ouyen United 42 - Hopetoun 49

C Grade – These girls had been the Bridesmaids to Walpeup- Underbool all season but you wouldn’t have known that once the game started. Having waited all day for their chance to shine, they sparkled. These Dees played a magnificent opening quarter that built the excitement and anticipation and sent a scare through the Roos’ camp. Superb feeding by Tara and Bec saw Bobbie and Charlotte shooting at 100% as they took and held the lead. The Roos rang in the changes and reasserted themselves, particularly in the goal ring where Claire and Alicia battled strongly. Maddy’s long reach pressured the Roos often. The girls stayed strong and determined with Madeleine fiercely protecting the goal space to send the ball into attack. For leadership, strength and effort, the awards went to Bec, Bobbie and Charlotte in a gallant team effort against a very talented opposition. Ouyen United 42 – Walpeup - Underbool 59

The Club congratulates the girls on their efforts to arrive as Grand Finalists, and thanks all for their support – members and sponsors. Congratulations to the premiers in all grades, and to Walpeup- Underbool as hosts.

Say it loud, say it proud. 1, 2, 3 DEES!!!

Hello,

This afternoon I was confined indoors due to the winter weather.  I was mucking around on 'Google' and typed in Ouyen (as I often think of home). 

I was looking @ various items of interest and happened upon the Ouyen Rover's Football home page.

Well done to all involved!  I have spent the afternoon looking @ the Photo Gallery.  It was unbelievable how grown up my old friend's children are now a' days.

The girls who were winners @ the 2014 Las Vegas night looked great.  A belated "Happy 49th Birthday" to Helen McKay from us.  Enjoyed seeing pictures of my cousin Carolyn Pengelly.

I loved the beautiful pictures of Spag and Cathy McKechnie @ the 2013 Roaring Twenties night.  I'm sure everyone @ the Club deeply misses Cathy.  Mick and Jack Donaghy's costumes looked terrific.  Mick, the Gangster suit looked better than the tutu!

I also scrolled through the pictures of the volunteers.  I laughed out loud looking @ the photo of Donald McGregor walking the boundary with Gally on a lead....especially as I'm well aware of how much Gally loves a football.

Best sign off and get tea ready.  Again, well done to all involved in this site.  I will look forward to perusing it further in future.

Regards,

Donna Nihill.

Scottsdale (Tasmania).
