Puma Wrap 21-08-13

Hi Everyone,

Seniors are Minor Premiers
We start with the brilliant news that after years of rebuilding (only winning 11 games in the last 5 years) we are proud to announce the Puma Seniors have lost only 1 game in 2013 &  have finished the season as the Minor Premiers. Can we go all the way in 2013? Well we have earnt a week off this Saturday but then its back to Puma Park (Lowe Oval) on the 31-08-13 at 2.15pm for our Semi-Final Clash. Be There!

Other Finals
Our U14s had a great come from behind victory last Sunday & now play against Caboolture in this weeks Semi @ Tansey Park Loganholme 8.45am. Come cheer them on. Sadly our U16s had a 1 point defeat last week in their Elimination final. With several key players injured late in the season the boys were up against it but never stopped trying. U18s fought hard but eventually went down to a well prepared Sandgate squad. The U18s now play a qualifying final against Sandgate again this Saturday @ Salk Oval, Palm Beach 9am. Take the drive & support the boys!

Thanks Shane
After years of brilliant service & loyalty to the club, sadly life member Shane Murrihy has decided to retire from playing. He played over 200 Senior games. Shane, in his true trademark no fuss style only let it be known publicly after last Saturdays game. Thanks Shane you will be missed! However, We am sure Shane & the Murrihy family will still be seen regularly around the club they have all given so much to.

Volunteer Help for Finals & QLD Volunteer Award to Simmo
The seniors will play their next final at our home ground on Saturday 31-08-13. We will need volunteers to help in the canteen on this day.

Whilst we are on volunteers news, the following has been copied from a Facebook release: NAB congratulates Paul Simpson, Auskick Coordinator at the Springwood JAFC NAB AFL Auskick Centre, for being selected as the NAB AFL Volunteer of the Year state winner for Queensland! His efforts were noticed by AFLQ officials who nominated & then selected him for this prestigious award. Paul has played a key role in Footifying the youngest stars of the game.
