Training commences for the 2006 season on Thursday February 2nd
, 6.30pm at Sherwood AFC.
Competition for spots will be fierce this year. We have a few new guys who are real keen for a run and actually know how to spell AFL!
A draft fixtures draw will be released this Friday, but at this stage the competition will be teams from Wilston Grange, Moorooka, Ipswich, Logan, Bribie, Calamvale, Kedron, Griffith Uni, Kenmore and of course us.
Apparently a few of the Wilston Grange guys have gone to Kedron - so that should weaken WG. Of course that give us absolutely no idea how strong Kedron or Calamvale will be but we will soon find out.
In the meantime it is crucial we get a good attendance to training. We only train 1 night a week, and we are going to be introducing a new concept to the team this year...........tactics. We have quite a few experienced players making their debut for the Low Rollers in 2006 and quite frankly, we'd be mad not to utilise their knowlege and skills. So in order to be ready for the first game - only about 10 weeks away - we need to be rolling now!
Unbelievably I have heard reports of players actually do pre-season fitness work. While somewhat shocked and appalled, I am also a bit worried that the very last goal of the season, kicked by yours truely has motivated the team to such a degree that I may be relegated to forward pocket instead of centre half fwd. Oh well, whatever is best for the team. By the way, if anyone isn't aware of the Goal of the Year - please contact me for more details.
are available now! See me if you want one, photos will be available at training - only $15
