2017 Season Report
Well it certainly is interesting each year what the competition brings! This year we found some clubs which were strong in past years, however struggled to fill sides or not fill sides at all. As a result some, other sides were strengthened with new players.
In a very even competition, it really did come down to which team performed the best on game day. The fact that each match was going to be very competitive, every week is something the boys should consider on reflection of our loss in the semi-final this year.
Each of the boys should be extremely proud of how they conducted themselves throughout the season. Of course the most important thing was that they continued to enjoy each other’s company, at training and on game day. The biggest challenge this year was the all too soon loss of our team mate, Finny Marker. To see him running the kicking tee for us while he was unable to play was something that brought me great comfort to see him contribute to the game he loved so much.
While we may have lost the game at Shark Park at Narrabeen directly after his passing, again the way the boys conducted themselves was inspiring. Something both the boys and parents should be very proud of.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank both Riddo and Simon, who assisted Gary during the year. To Gary he dedicated a huge amount of time and effort into training and the boys development. I don’t think he missed a single game or training all year and his enthusiasm was contagious, Thank you.
It has been a pleasure being involved and seeing your sons’ develop over the past 5 years. Sam and I will miss you all greatly. It is an experience that will be hard to match. Thanks so much for your friendship. Despite the ups and downs, the wins and losses, we hope like us the biggest and best thing you take home is just that! Friendship…Brothers for Life
Cheers, Glenn Delaney (Team Manager)
