Re: SAAFL division 5 2014

Big shoutout to my ol mate Colin Harrison playing his 300th in the Bs this week @ Greenacres.
Great player from a proud EFC family. Think his old man Kev played 3-400 odd games for the Eags as well.

Onya Colzy, have a good one. =D>

Re: Ch9 AFL Division 5 - 2015

Congratulations to former Elizabeth player Josh Glenn, he will be making his AFL debut tomorrow for the SUNS, to think he was playing Div 4 footy a couple of years ago, just shows what commitment and hard work can do! All the best Josh.
And a great game he played too. very proud of him, a lot of people were disappointed we saw him back at EFC couple season ago. but then he jut clicked mentally and nek minute.... AFL! I hope he inspires some other lads that grew up in Elizabeth to never give up if you dont take your 1st opportunity, hard work will give you another chance.
Dunno if Gub found any red cans up at Metricon?.. but im sure he enjoyed that game more than anyone!

With 3 club suspensions today at GC, he will get a massive run in midfield this week, ive already locked him into my DreamTeam mids haha.

Re: BL&G Football League

Josh Glenn has signed at Willaston
And they offer from centrals Sanfl was a real nice offer,from the afl to the barrossa just like that..

Strange,

I know your close to Josh but it seems when it comes to sport Josh just isnt willing to put in any real hard work outside of gameday.

Its a shame because he has more skill in his little toe than most of us in our entire body.

Alot of us would give our left net to have the chances he has had at a variety of sport.

Just an observation is that he seems to chop and change his mind alot and tends to have alot of falling out with people.
I'm not that close to him mate, and everything u have written above I totally agree with. Just a absolute waste of talent . I watch kids that bust there ass off to play at the highest level (Sanfl )some never get the chance to play league not one game but they work there ass off 4 to 5 nights a week to play ressies then u have young josh world at his feet on a silver platter if u will and basically can't be f&cked.. Sad would have loved what he was given at 20 years old.. Completely agree. Its amazing he even got the 2nd chance he did at Central. Ive watched this kid from a young age and it seemed he always enjoyed being the big fish in a small pond. I was very excited he got a go at Gold Coast and thought he had mentally turned the corner. Word is he struggled socially at GC and despite leaderships groups efforts to get him out the house to socalise he wouldnt. GC is a LONG way from Elizabeth Grove!! To play AFL you need to be up to it physically and mentally, its very sad he only excelled in one of these. Wish him well at the Donnybrooks and hope he is finially happy doin what he does best, playin footy.

Re: Ch9AFL C GRADE Divisions - 2017

C Divisions 2018.jpg

Slow news week, potential C grade divisions in 2018 based on total guess work and club's A grade being promoted/relegated..
Heard the Elizabeth D grade coach is a spud that has never coached before ;)

Honestly, if we are going to get the 4th side up, it would only work if C grade to C5, where they wouldve been automatically promoted to anyways after making GF and the D grade into C6. That will be what we propose to the league, if league put our C grade any higher it will lessen chances of retaining enough players to fill the D grade.

id also like to take this opportunity to advertise for players in the D grade, know anyone wanting to have a social kick with some good lads, get in contact with me.
I was talking to Dave last week and we might sit in the pockets.
Cool!
I have 5 Full Forwards and 8 forward pockets so far! Goals wont be a problem, our defence may be! lol

Re: Schweppes C Grade 2018

Very interesting chain of events saturday it seems.

We got a phone call from a trainer for Unis C6 side following up that we were indeed forfeiting our game as someone had sent a dodgily worded text message to their football director from someone pretending to be me, advising we were forfeiting our C6 game due to lack of numbers! This text wasnt followed up by the club and posted on the internal facebook chat they have.

I was made aware at about 1130am and got straight on the phone to clarify that we had 25 blokes on their way to Uni for the 2:15 game. Luckily they were able to pull their side back together and we ended up beaten fair and square thanks to Malinauskas' dominant display at full forward.

Thanks to the Uni trainer who called us and made us aware of this, she saved what would've been a very awkward situation for both clubs.

Re: Schweppes C Grade 2018

Well Saturday was the end of our season, our first ever season with a D grade.
We had an unprecedented hit on injuries for most of the season which meant we had to call on our backups which were a few guys from Gawler Districts Super Rules and some Under 16s.
Even then we had to battle with 15-16 blokes at some stages.

But I couldnt be prouder of the efforts all my players put in during the year. Competing as a Div 6 D grade against mostly Div 1/2 D grades was always going to be tough but each game the boys fought on and were always more competitive than the scorelines showed.

I set some KPIs at the start of the season and I am proud we met all of them.
- Never Scoreless
- Win a game
- Never Forfeit

In a season where disapointingly we had 2 teams pull out, it resolved us to try even harder to get the side up every week, not just for us but for all the other teams in C6. It took me a lot of my friday nights and sat mornings hustling for players but we got there!

I wish all the teams in the finals all the best and may the best team win.

I can confirm Elizabeth wont be fielding another D grade side this season. The club had numerous injuries throughout the season and we only just scraped together a side with the Masters lads and some Under 16s for most of the season. Proud we never had to forfeit tho.

Re: 2021 Adel Footy League - Division 7

Rigney serious injury on the weekend?
Achilles. Looked bad. Might be done for half a season at least.

Ruptured Achilles confirmed. :(

Sad day for the footy club and local footy lovers in general. Trev is remaining positive and i'd never write him off being the genetic freak that he is. Such a brutal injury at his age it will be a tough and unlikely road back for the champ.

Not many true legends of local footy but he is certainly one of them. yeah thats a bad one, feel sorry for the bloke, he is great to watch even from an opposition view. Good luck with the recovery legend.

Re: PDCA

As it wasnt out in the public sphere I held back posting this earlier.

But this morning the president of the PDCA Andrew Quinlish (Quinny) passed away from a heart attack in his home.

Very sad news for his family especially his partner and kids and the large circle of mates he has.

My father in law passed suddenly in the same way and its a massive shock for the family to deal with as well as the sadness.

My condolences to all the Quinny family and friends.

Re: 2021 Adel Footy League - Division 7

Sure the timeslot is not ideal and a bit of a logistical challenge but only for the B Grade starting time, but when your at the bottom of the grade food chain you get what you get.
The President of the club has adopted the 'Anywhere, Anytime' mantra and all the boys have gotten around it.

I always look for the glass half full approach.
St Marys is the perfect size ground for the way the Units play.
Our As and Bs are playing together.
Everyone loves playing night footy!

Game on!

Re: PDCA

Just went to the PDCA web site to see if a new president had been appointed and found the most unprofessional thing the association has done in years. All they have done is to strike through (crossed out) Quinny's name. Surely they could have removed his name and replaced it with something like 'to be appointed'. Bad play.
Thanks for highlighting that.
It was an unintentional error by the person who manages the PDCA website who was just removing Quinnys mobile number out of respect.
That has been fixed up and no disrespect was intended.

Re: 2021 Adel Footy League - Division 7

Great atmosphere Friday night. All 3 clubs had extremely vocal supporters, noone crossed the line and I didnt mind the chanting from the Crabs.
They havent had a great run in recent years and wouldve been quite special for them to knock off an undefeated side to go to a Granny.
Best of luck to them next week, the bigger the oval the better chance they have of another upset.

PNU were great hosts, saw 1st hand Gary McIntosh doing all the little things for his club. Have a lot of respect for a legend like him doing stuff like hand writing the various teams scoreboard names, sweeping up etc was glad to see them get up in Grade 1/1R today.

They would be wrong. The convoys, minibuses, horse and buggys are all being organised for Mitcham.
Easy trip really, South Rd has been good on Saturdays lately and then an easy run east up Cross Rd.

Re: PDCA

Dublin cruising 20 minutes before the tea break at 2/89..... At the tea break 8/96

Virginia decided to bat again and try and get a quick point, while handing Dublin 2 points :?

1 over left in the day dublin decide to bat again and try and hit the 150 they needed to win :roll:

Probably the dumbest thing i have ever seen in a game of cricket, the sharks dont seem to be making too many friends, the players only seem to be playing there because of the $$$
Yeah, I thought that was a bit weird, who done all the damage for Virginia?

Just a side note to take back to your clubs, I usually take my Sunday morning dump around 8:30, I like to multi task and check through the scores during this time, I start at Grade 1 and work my way down checking out all grades except for LO1, so can we get the individual results in by then please?

I then flick over to the Barossa, they seem to keep me occupied for longer.
I was doing the Units up until this season, Id get em up Sat night (no life obz) or dawn Sunday morning so us cricket stat nerds had something to squat on.
