Can you believe it? Round 11 is already upon us! 2016 has taken off to a flying start and we’re already past the half way mark. Take a look further below for a snapshot as to where all the teams are placed.
The Lions have also been pretty busy off the field, some great events have come and gone. Our Annual Ball was a big hit with everyone, another big thanks to Hurley’s Hotel for hosting us it’s always a big event on our calendar. Just last week we welcomed back some Premiership heroes from 1976, 1986 and 1996. The rooms were full to the brim with everyone sharing some old stories about the special years they’re had at Stanhope. A big thanks to Gavan Poole, Mick West and co. for organising the great night.
Up ahead we have the Flight Night next weekend after the Murchison game. We’ll be heading to 3 different destinations around the world, upon arrival you’ll receive a complimentary drink from the country we are visiting. First Class Tickets - $50, Economy Class - $20. You’ll definitely be looked after in First Class ;)
Also on July 2nd we have our $1000, tickets are just $10 to go in the draw for some cold hard cash. After the Rushy Away game head to the Stanhope pub where ticket holders can enjoy free beer, wine and soft drink between 8-10pm.
Under 15s (Ladder Pos: 8th, 2 wins – 5 Losses)
The Baby Cubs have started off the year really well with showing signs of improvement each week. Some patches of games are of high quality and show us some signs of what’s to come, not only this year but for their own future
Under 17s (7th, 2-4)
Sitting just outside the Top 6, the 17s are more than capable on their day, they showed some real grit and determination against ladder leaders Nagambie but the girls have had 4 byes! Yes 4! So hopefully for them they can get some consistent game time in the next block of games.
C Grade (10th, 3-6)
Nelly’s gals have started to hit some consistent form in recent weeks with some nice wins coming off that form. Starting to move the ball quite nicely one would say! Just 2 wins of 5th place which shows the tight competition in C Grade this year.
B Grade (5th, 5-3-1 Draw)
B Grade has started the year quite well, some really nice ones. Couple of up-and-down week with a draw and a loss to the Lakers but the girls keep bouncing back and are now on track heading into the second half of the year.
A Grade (4th, 7-2)
A Grade have steadily improved throughout the start of the season. Just 2 losses to both top sides coming into another important match against Tally (Third). Their best is definitely good enough on the day, well placed for the second half of the year.
Under 18s (5th, 6-2)
Deano’s boys have started really well this season, have used a lot of players already but keep getting the job done. Massive game against Tally this weekend to stay in touch for a top 2 spot
Reserves (1st, 9-0)
The Reserves are going along nicely so far this season without loss, but massive test this week with 1 v 2 against Tally. Workload has been spread nicely across the team so far, need to keep that up
Seniors (3rd, 7-2)
Hoota’s boys are ticking along nicely at the moment, 2 losses to Avenel and Nagambie have bookended some good matches with solid ball movement and attack on the contest. Need to work hard in the next block of games to stay in the fight for a Top 2 finish
