There have been so many great things happening and so many more coming up!
Opportunities seized at the Sea Eagles
The Sea Eagles smashed the Dragons 36 to 6 at Brookie, providing great relief to the players and fans. Big bopper reserves Siosaia Vave and Addin Fonua-Blake showed outstanding attitude and muscle and were rewarded with awesome tries.
Further joy came from The Blues winning the final game in Sydney. Well done Laurie and the boys!
Manly Brothers junior Brad Parker has been named to make his Sea Eagles NRL debut.
See Brad’s profile at http://www.seaeagles.com.au/team/profiles/brad_parker.html. Watch Fox Sports tonight to see Brad take to the wing, or if you don’t have it at home pop down to Manly Leagues Club.
Make some noise Manly
We have seen a big increase in the numbers of extended family members and friends attending Manly Brothers games. They have contributed by cheering with positive comments, which undoubtedly lifts the boys. They have also made a huge contribution by purchasing team merchandise, which demonstrates their support whilst contributing to raising money for the new kitchen at the clubhouse. See the new hoodie which can be purchased online.
The kitchen project
The sink and bench in our canteen is collapsing and we need a decent upgrade. Bunnings Balgowlah have said they will contribute some products and Club Secretary Jackie McCauley has volunteered to prepare our submission. Also Foxy has volunteered to project manage for us. If you can help with product, services or labour please contact him at email@example.com.
This event turned out to be one of the largest the club has ever run. The grounds and clubhouse were packed with well wishers to the Meates family.
It was also great that Daly Cherry-Evans visited us again. Our old friend Choc was welcomed back to the fold by Manly Blues Brother Will Farrar.
Visitors and Visiting
Manly brothers were pleased to host the boys to the Temora Under 11 side, which visited us for their Annual City visit, arriving on Friday afternoon and staying overnight at the clubhouse. On Saturday we hosted a 3 way Under 11’s game with Cromer, Manly Brothers and Temora followed by dinner upstairs in the clubhouse. On Sunday the visitors did a surf clinic before heading home.
Manly Brothers club has also made a donation to a school in Fiji. The school is in rural Fiji (a hill tribe) where they survive day to day through farming and not much else. A small gesture from us that have much to those that have nothing. The school is Koroinauau they were extremely thankful of our gifts.
If you have further suggestions for improvements to our club, then please email.
