Preparations for season 2018 are well under way, and we are looking forward to another historic and exciting season at the Thunderdome.
The clubrooms, although overdue, will certainly be up and running, giving us the best facilities on the Mornington Peninsula. We will be fielding 11 teams in total from Under 9 to Under 16, along with Under 13 Girls, Under 15 (Intermediate) Girls and Under 18 (Youth) Girls teams. This is the most teams to have
ever represented the mighty Thunder, so footy is alive and well in Balnarring.
Registrations are now open, and all information available on the website (www.thunderfc.org). Please be aware that we will cap all teams at a maximum of 25 players, as we did last year. First preference will be given to returning players, but will open registrations up to newcomers from January 8th, so please register early to avoid disappointment.
We have been working hard to interview and appoint coaches for 2018, so it’s with great pleasure that we can announce some of those appointments:-
Under 12 – Steve Northcote
Under 13 – Paul Barry
Under 15 – Kevin Vercoe
Under 16 – Tyson Holmes (a new appointment to the club. Welcome Tyson)
Under 15 Girls – Leigh Haslem
Under 18 Girls – Brett Steenholdt
We will continue to work hard in the next couple of weeks to finalise appointments for Under 9, 10, 11, 14 and Under 13 Girls.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Anthony Gadd (President BJFC)
