The Ironbank Cherry Gardens Football Club is your local team and very much appreciates all the support we get from the local community. While football is still a number of months away there is still a number of activities going on as we get prepared for our second season in the Country division of the HFL.
The 2018 season will see our club enter the competition will a full complement of Junior teams in the boy’s comp with a Senior Colts, Junior Colts and Mini Colts teams as well as the 2 Modified Rules teams for the youngsters. We are also running the Auskick programs at both the Coromandel Valley and Hawthorndene Primary Schools.
We are now heavily into recruiting for all teams and as one of our key values is playing local we are very keen to hear from any and all players who consider themselves local. For the boys we are still looking for players for all age groups from the U9’s through to the seniors and for the girls we will be playing an U16’s team as well as a seniors or over 18’s. If you know of anyone that is interested then please get them to contact anyone from the club or just turn up on a Thursday evening at the club and talk to us.
On November 30th we held a “come and try” session for the girls teams and on the same night we invited all senior players and the U18’s to meet the new coaches and get the latest information around the upcoming season. We had a great turn out for both with a few new girls having a go and seeing a number of new players for the seniors catching up with their team mates and coaches.
Pre-season training has now started with a couple of sessions under our belts prior to Christmas and the full program starting in the week after the Australia Day long weekend. During January all players are challenged to get their fitness up with sessions in the gym and some running.
On a final note we are very keen to talk to any local businesses who would consider sponsoring the club. Sponsors are very important to the success of the club and without them we would not be able to field teams each year. Sponsor packages start at $500. If you are interested then again please contact someone at the club.
