was great to see that all players contributed to their impressive win over South Gawler.
team was ably led by Jack Madgen, Brent O’Driscoll and Josh Osborne. In the very
difficult conditions, there was no doubting the lads’ determination and
competitive spirit which was a big factor in the result. Just one more match

The A grade took
to the ground in what proved to be deteriorating conditions. Within minutes of
the first ‘bounce’ all the players were covered in mud and it was impossible to
distinguish between the two teams. In the second quarter the fog rolled in
blanketing the oval making it impossible to see across the ground creating very

The whole team
never gave up all day with every contest hard fought. The conditions ensured
that the ball could not be kicked more than twenty metres at a time.
In the end the
game went down to an agonising tussle with the lads unable to break through.
Best on the day
included Michael Taylor, Adam Spencer, Matt Stelzer, Aaron McAlpine, Ross
Christie and Ashley Amber.

The players were unanimous
in agreeing that the conditions were the worst that they had ever played in,
including those who had played when it was snowing. That said, the
Club wishes to congratulate Angaston Football Club in doing a great job on what
was an extraordinarily miserable day.
The team will
spend this week regrouping for their game against Gawler Central.
This should be a
hard fought contest with the lads determined to rebound.
All supporters are
encouraged to come along and encourage the lads.
