A massive thank you goes out to all the registered coaches, managers, (75 in total) and all the volunteer helpers who have made our club so successful this year.
As a club, this year has surpassed expectations, both in registrations (408 players) and our end of year achievements, we couldn't have got there without the help of everyone. We have had some very memorable experiences both on and off the field, some of these are reflected in the award recipients for this year.
