2016 Under 11 Grand Final Champions
Manly Brothers 34 – Forestville Ferrets 6
1st in Div 2 League
Co-coach: Danny Angelo
Co-coach: Mark O’Brien
Manager: Jocelyn Dacic
After the success of 2015 the DTs were under pressure to keep up the rate of improvement both on and off the field. We set out early in the year a few simple goals for the season: Gradual improvement, fun and player retention. On reflection, we have been lucky to have continued the process of improvement with all the boys’ skills on the field, sportsmanship and overall enjoyment of the game. The boys all finished the season (and most games) with huge enthusiasm for the club, their team and rugby league. Hopefully we have the boys coming back to the club in 2017.
A fair indication of the DTs form and improvement was demonstrated late in the season when we played Cromer who went on to win the A comp… After 25 min of footy there was only 2 points in it to Cromer favour. The boys would have enjoyed another game against them at the end of year…
maybe Division 1 is beckoning??? A big thanks to former coach Matt and super manager Jackie for all their help this year… their continued support and thoughts were never far from the boys which has been appreciated by all.
Our first aid extraordinaire: Damian Miners, a huge thank you on behalf of not only our boys but also the opposition who you have equally supported all season, As parents and coaches we have all felt reassured by the duty of care shown for all players each week. A special mention to Jason also who has helped us out on the occasions Damian was not able to make it.
A special mention also to one of our biggest supporters… Nana. Your hearty cheering, constant encouragement and work mentoring the coaches and inspiring the kids has again added to our team’s success, enthusiasm and overall fun each week. GO NANA… This year we have been assisted (many occasions) by a few players from the under 10’s. Sam and Charlie Blank, Oscar Dacic and Will Rylands. We appreciate your Manly Brothers club spirit!
