The Dawn Of A New Era

Dear My Beloved Eagles

This weekend is the first game of the season against the Bulldogs, I shouldn't have to go into the attitude we must bring to this game as everyone knows the general feelings towards them.

The last few weeks the weather has been against us and the fields have been closed not allowing us to train, this has not been ideal. I would like everyone to be at Northwood Park booted up ready to start at 1130am so we will have some time to sort out our plans and positions for the game. As it is the University holidays we will be light on numbers for this weekend and maybe next weekend so if you have any mates that are interested/or not drag them along for the game as well.

We smashed these guys in the final last year which means they will hurting and wanting revenge for the way we disgraced  team. It will be a hard/physical game and no matter what I don't want a single Eagle to take a backwards step, we are going to turn up on Saturday ready to go and give more than we get in return. The Eagles legacy hit an all time high last year and we will not do anything to disgrace the Eagles who have played before us, if we lose so be it but we will never give up and will fight till the end.

Turn up on Saturday ready to go by 1130, Northwood Park.

I am heading down to Ilam fields Thursday night 5pm for some kicks. New players it is a good opportunity to be given some kick/ handball tips and learn some of the rules. Returning players it will be a good time to blow some of those cobwebs out and get your hands on the footy. I will hopefully see a few of you down there.

Otherwise see you Saturday
