Details of Next Luncheon
Presentation Night Coming Up

Ocean 12 Club at Crown
Going forward we would like to promote “success” around our club – whether from players, partners or individuals as there is a lot of positive things happening out there. Let me know if there is something you would like to share.

We are going to start off with the good work from one of our key partners, fit-out company ONE68. They have received some good press regarding a couple of recently completed construction projects – Ocean 12 Club at Crown Casino (35 karaoke bars!) and the landmark new Country Road store at Chadstone. Both are excellent examples of their workmanship and are worthy of recognition.

Of course Peter Gleadhill and Aaron Toy need to be acknowledged for reaching their important milestones on the weekend. They broke through the banner on Saturday with Gledders playing game 150 and Az number 100. Both have made significant contributions to the club and we look forward to them being around for many years to come. Well done boys.

The Young Bloods once again provided the weekend’s highlight with an impressive win over St Bedes-Mentone while both senior teams found Beaumaris too strong.

The Bloods got off to a slow start and were never able to recover. The visitors dominated the first 15 minutes with the ball barely making it into the Haileybury forward line. A Durras Seccull goal gave the scoreboard a little bit of respectability but the damage had already been done.

While the boys were more competitive in the second quarter, the theme was the same. We struggled to get clean possession and a clear avenue to goal. Once again we only scored the one major, while Beaumaris were able to assert their authority.

Our competitiveness continued in the second half and indeed outscored Beaumaris in the last quarter and with a lot more scoring shots. But it was always going to be a bridge too far. Gledders and Aaron Toy were amongst the better players in their milestone games, while Riley Thompson continued his recent good form.

Next week we venture to Brunswick St Oval to take on Fitzroy in a vital game.

The Ressies also got off to a slow start and were never able to recover. Depth, after a couple of early injuries was a problem as we found Beaumaris just had a few more seasoned players. Mark Irwin and Jackson Price were our better players, while Schnides bagged two of the majors.
