THE Bomaderry Tigers will officially launch their 2016 season on Monday, February 1 at6pm at Artie Smith Oval. Please try and get there nice and early, no matter how unfit you are. Shouldn’t be too hard first up, as the main thing we want to do is have a chat and work out what we all want to achieve and what nights’ suit the majority.

They will probably elect to train on Monday and Wednesday for the time being, to allow players involved with cricket to attend.
All positions on the committee were filled at the AGM, along with the appointment of Glenn Keys as director of coaching, Lachlan Jackman as first grade coach and Andrew Pearn as reserve grade coach for 2016.
Glenn joined the Tigers midway through last year and instantly had an impact both as an assistant coach and through his willingness to get in and help out at all levels. With the Tigers keen to have everyone (first and second grade and the u17s) training as one and playing the same game plan, Glenn’s experience and input is seen as a positive step and one that will hopefully compliment the youth and enthusiasm of Lachlan Jackman who takes over the reins from Sean Byrne after serving most of last year as Pudge’s assistant.With Dukesy and Burnie also offering their assistance, the Tiger’s look well positioned from a coaching perspective, however they are still keen to hear from anyone who might like to get involved and help out on the sidelines, be it as an assistant coach, a runner, or as a strapper.

With the club in a healthy position financially and all positions filled on the committee, their main priority now is to top up our playing list and recruit some new faces to the club. With that in mind, the club strongly encourages everyone to keep an eye out for anyone new to the local area or looking to transfer clubs. It doesn’t matter how good you are, or if you have never played the game before, as long as you are keen to have a go and want to be part of a successful club that embraces family, fun and football, then the BAFC is the club for you.For the record, Bomaderry will once again be fielding senior teams in first and second grade, while the juniors have teams entered in the u12s, u14.5s and u17s age groups, plus it is hoped that there will be an u10s competition similar to last year.
In addition to that, there is an Auskick program for the younger kids, so as you can see, there is plenty of AFL for all age groups. For more information on club activities (football or social) please contact Sticks on 0403 291 231or Tony McCann on 0422 365 408.
Until next time, Go the Tigers – WHOOA!
