Finals Football – NORTHCOTE PARK Seniors and Reserves
Week 2 of the finals has both the Northcote Park Seniors and reserves playing in the second semi final. Unfortunately the under 19s bowed out last week but with most of the team bottom aged they will be back bigger and better for a big tilt at the flag next year. They say a week is a long time in footy, I’m hoping 3 weeks seems an eternity for Macleod as 3 weeks ago they defeated Northcote Park by 14 goals. It will be different on Saturday though with 8 changes to that team including the inclusions of the 4 Collingwood VFL players, Ash Close, Jackson Starcevich, Jordan Collopy and Marty Hore.
It would be great to see the junior club supporting the seniors of which most played their football with us as juniors. Game kicks off at 2:10 up at Cramer St opposite the market, the reserves kick off at 11:55 are also very strong with 13 of the players having played senior football this year. For those of you that haven’t seen the seniors play, its very, very good football and well worth the trip.
Preparation for 2018
Planning for 2018 has already commenced with reviews of procedures, policies and coaching arrangements, as we strive to improve our practices and continue to develop as a club. We are intending to field all-girls teams in U10, U12, U14 and U16 age groups, as well as mixed/boys teams in U9, U10, U11, U12, U13, U14 and U15 and we hope all of you will be back to play again next year. If you have any friends who might be interested in joining start encouraging them now. Registrations for the 2018 season will open on 1 November, and we are putting in place a pre-season program set to commence in late 2017.
