Hopkins returns

The club is thrilled to announce that Glenn 'Fitzy' Hopkins will form part of our coaching team for season 2017.

In a first for the club, Fitzy will be our Development Coach and work on developing and improving players individually and in small groups. ...

For those unsure, Fitzy was our senior coach from 2005 to 2011 and has a proven track record. With a rubbish list at times, under his reign we managed to play finals every year, including multiple grand finals. This was only manageable because Fitzy was able to get 100% out of every one of his players.

We know the players are stoked to have Fitzy on board.

Welcome back, Glenn!

We would love to see anyone that has been involved with the Diggers Rest Football Netball Club over the last 40 years. We have had several people from years gone by already confirm their attendance. 

The night will be catered by an external provider, with plenty of finger food on offer and drinks at bar prices. There will also be live acoustic entertainment to sing along to and photos of years gone by presented on the tv throughout the night. 

Formalities of the night will include interviews with past premiership players in attendance, announcement of our ‘Number One Ticket Holder’ for season 2018, a quick word from our Senior Football and Netball Coaches and the announcement of our 2018 Captains. 

We will be auctioning off one Senior and one Reserves framed and signed 2016 Premiership jumper on the night. This is your only opportunity to get your hands on one of these. There will be door prizes, a 2016 Premiership beer urn to be auctioned and two signed International Cup footballs to be silently auctioned. 

More announcements to be made on the night.
