A word from the Senior Coach
The 2018 season will be here before we know it, pre-season training starts again Thursday 23 November and each Tuesday and Thursday thereafter until 14 December. In the new year we kick off again on Tuesday 16 January, with round 1 commencing the Saturday after Easter.
2017 was very much a re-building year for the club and even though the A and B grade made the finals for the first time in over 7 years, there is still much work to be done to achieve the ultimate success and start the climb back up the divisions.
We have been able to maintain the majority of our playing list for the first time in many years which will provide the club with much needed stability. We have been lucky enough to add some quality recruits to our list and have some very talented u18s progressing to senior football in 2018. With hard work and natural improvement of our young players, all grades will be aiming to improve on “just making the finals” in 2018.
It is an exciting time to be around the club with a new jumper design and also for the first time, the addition of a senior women’s team in 2018. On behalf of the football committee, coaching staff and players we thank the Northgate Members for their support and wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
