2017 Season Report
A good season for the U13 Age group with 38 players registered – double any other Club in the district. We welcomed a number of new players to the Club and hope they enjoyed their first season with the “Brothers”. The age group had success with the 13 Maroon side winning the first divison competition so all players in the squad can be proud of their efforts throughout the Season.
With up to 20 players signing on regularly the Whites had to share the available game time around and did this with a positive team attitude.
The boys won some games and were competitive in most games throughout the season. They never gave up, even when matched against sides that should have been playing in a higher division. Their attitude to training was mostly positive and that enthusiasm transferred to the field more often than not.
Thanks to all the parents and siblings that helped out during the year on the desk, running water or flags. Thanks also to Squad Manager Paul for the Team App updates.
Finally thanks to all the boys as well for toughing it out each week against bigger and faster opposition teams. You can be proud of your efforts, I know that I am proud of you.
Adopt a Manly Sea Eagle: Jorge Taufua
The exciting winger was sorely missed at the back end of last season after undergoing a knee reconstruction. One of the most experienced players at the Sea Eagles, Jorge knows his way to the tryline and is a powerful runner of the ball when returning kicks. A 90s enthusiast, Jorge likes music, sports, fashion, and film. A self-proclaimed road trip DJ, Jorge is one of the most popular and respected players at Manly.
