MUSTANGS CANT BE BROKEN

And so the season comes to an end with losses to the Mustangs out at Mooroolbark. After a promising start to the season we dropped away dramatically in the last six weeks. Injuries hampered our first 18 (we used 43 in the SNRS this year ) and all but put paid to our 2nd 18 chances. But there’s a reason why the windscreen is bigger than the rear vision mirror - We look forward and not back our division one netball girls play off for back to back titles this Friday night, we have already appointed or reappointed all of our coaches for 2018, we have a strong group of under 17 boys coming off back 2 Back flags that will form the nucleus of our under 19s in 2018. Our junior club fielded a record Number of teams in 2017 (16) and our under 11s won the 11A grand final .2018 can be whatever you want it to be #strongandbold#onwardsandupwards

Reserves Coaches Report 

Season over after what was a pretty dirty day for the club on Saturday, once again we had to scramble to get a side unfortunately we didn't manage to get a bench so the boys were up against it on a big ground. Our first half was average as we went into the main break well down, our second half was better as the everyone rallied. Certainly wasn't the end to the year we expected as our best side and footy was good enough to play finals, I have no doubt about that! Success though was seeing our 1st year players stepping up all being terrific, with 5 of them playing Seniors and the others well entrenched in our best in the reserves side, most importantly they are all great blokes! I'd like to thank our support staff Benny, Manny, Q, Dennis, danger senior, Johnny, Brooke,Courtney and Emily without thus help we couldn't get our side on the park. Our supporters were awesome as always so thank you, and finally to the players, it's a privilege to coach such a great bunch of guys the future is a bright one and I can't wait to get into again in 2018.                                                             Steve Jordan Reserves Coach 

Senior Coaches Report 

We finished the season by taking on a desperate Mooroolbark who had to win to make the finals. We knew it would be a tough encounter as they had so much on the line. It proved to be so as they played desperate committed football which we were unable to match and they registered a commanding win to play their way into the finals. It was a disappointing way to end the season which has had so many positives. To play 6 guys who played under 19’s football last season is a real positive for the club and means we are going in the right direction.We also had some really strong contributions from our recruits and with another pre season under their belt coupled with being more familiar with the group I expect that they could have a larger impact on the game next season.Thanks to all the supporters who came out during the season to support us, the tiger army is always strong and we appreciate the support.Thanks to Macca, Dane and the rest of the committee for their unwavering support and for all the hard work they put into the club to help it run smoothly.I look forward to seeing everyone back on board for 2018
