Football Club

By the time you read this newsletter the minor rounds of the footy season will be drawing to a close. The season arrived early and has flown by and before we know it we will be in to the finals and hopefully our seniors teams will all be strong contenders.

Currently the A’s are second on the ladder and the B’s are third. Our women are playing really well in the Hills League this year but they are struggling to find some consistent goal kickers. They are third on the ladder.

The U14’s have only had the one win for the season and a draw. The U16’s have had a mixed season and are sitting third on the ladder. The U18’s are sitting 4th on the ladder.

Outside of playing footy the club continues to be busy throughout the week with training and a few functions.

Last month we joined with the Blackwood Golf Club to have our inaugural Club Golf Day. Unfortunately the weather was not the best but everyone had a fun day and the hospitality of the golf club was great.

Trivia Night

Coming up on August 17th is our club Quiz Night and we would welcome any locals who would like to join us.

Grant Approved

We would like to thank the Onkaparinga Council for approving a Grant of $5,000 towards the Goal Net behind the northern end goals. It will help immensely towards this project.

Everyone is welcome

As with everything at the Football Club, Netball Club and Recreation Ground, everyone is welcome and we hope that all the residents of Cherry Gardens, Ironbank and Coromandel East remember that you the community own it and it is yours to enjoy and be a part of. Whether you just want to walk the dog (please pick up the dog poo), kick a footy, shoot a few baskets or have a hit of tennis you are always welcomed and we want you to feel a part of what we are.

There are meals served every Thursday evening and it is a great place to make friends, catch up with what’s going on and just feel a part of the community.

Hope to see you at the club and maybe check out the next home game!
