Thanks to Bec Mack for the team photos and to Carmen Southwell, Jo Barton and Nedine Young for the team reports each week,  To the Coaches, Damien Young, Heath Barton, Paul McLachlan and Paul Bond, without your time and committment to the season we would not have got up and running.  To Rodney McKinnon and Richard Todd, thank you for helping out when others had work committments. A big thank you to Glenda Wright, Carmen Southwell and all the other parents who helped out in the canteen and to Gwydir Shire Council for allowing us to play on the magnificient Gwydir Oval for our home games. 

As the season draws to a close we look back at the year and can only hope that the children get as much enjoyment out of next year as they did this year. We would like to encourage anyone who is interested in coaching, referring or playing minor league in the 2012 season to attend our AGM coming up shortly. Please show your support so we can field more teams next year, even under 6’s!

The date for the AGM will be decided shortly.
