Our season launch was a great success last weekend. The boys played their final practice match for the pre-season and had a comfortable win which is a nice confidence boost going into round 1. That evening we had the famous Billy Brownless come down and regale us with some anecdotes of his playing days and Geelong. Billy also presented jumpers to the new (and returning) members of the team.
The Senior leadership team was announced. Congratulation to the following leaders: Rob Deev, Jimmy Allen, Phil Bennett, Simon Bennett and to our captain for 2016 Ben Hart.
Round 1 kicks off tomorrow with the Ressies (11:40am) and Seniors (2pm) playing Williamstown away @ Fearon Reserve. Supporters welcome!
Unfortunately we don’t have an Unders side this year due to a lack of numbers but we hope to get that very important side back for next year. With the younger players available and some extras in the Senior ranks, we will be fielding a Thirds side. Alex “Guts” MacKenzie will be the coach. Get around him!
Finally, the top deck at GBO is finally getting resurfaced. At the moment it looks like a giant beach and council says it should be ready mid year. Looking forward to a nice upper decker with lights and all!
Good luck to the players tomorrow and hope to see some supporters around the ground.
Leadership Team for 2016. Congratulations to Ben Hart who will captain the club again.
