In the blink of an eye, we now find ourselves at the mid point of our collective seasons. And so far, we have a season that is showing so much promise across all teams.
A quick look at the ladders indicates the following;
The Senior Men are unbeaten and sitting top after 9 rounds
The Senior Women are fourth
The Reserves Men are third
The Reserves Women are fifth
The Under 19’s are seventh
The Thirds are also on top and unbeaten.
Collectively, as a Club we 39 – 14, not a bad effort team!
All players should be pleased with their efforts to date, but the business end of the season is upon us and we need focus on delivering the Coaches plans, and just as importantly, we need plenty of support. So get on to our website, check the fixture and get yourself down to see a game – you have 6 to choose from most weeks. (just watch out for the upcoming mid-season bye)
Off field, plenty has been happening, with much to come. Our next Home game lunch is on 29 June – book online and note the earlier start time.
Work has been underway with the Centenary Sub-Committee on what plans we will make for 2020, and once I have more details, I will get information out to our community. A big thanks to Will Bowes who is doing a great job in driving this initiative.
Thursday nights generally has a dinner upstairs at Glenhuntly, with a recent evening celebrating the Dad’s in their involvement with their Sons and their football career. This has proven to be a popular night so will become part of the annual calendar. Just as the Mum’s night is, and we will let all the Mum’s know the date for your dinner shortly. Our Women’s teams also have a dinner on some Wednesday nights, and I am sure they would appreciate equal support. Stay tuned for information through the playing group.
A big shout out to all our Sponsors, who have been tremendous this year in their support of CGFC – without this support, we would not be able to provide the environment we have, and one which we are proud of. Familiarise yourself with them via the website. It has also been very pleasing to see our Members rise in number, (a big thank you to those who have) although given the size of our broader community, I do sense we should have more. So if you haven’t yet, there is still time to do this via the web). And finally, to all our Player Sponsors – you are a wonderful group and we should all look at our Business Registry – help them out as they have helped us.
