B.B.Q. – Directly after training to fill your hungry hard working bellies!

Guys, it’s really important we get everyone down to training before Christmas, we will have plenty of new faces so there will be heavy emphasis on getting to know one another and start to build that team culture nice and early.

Training will not be about “smashing guys with heaps of running” but more heavily focused on training, the style of footy we want to play going forward. If you are missing sessions – you will fall behind.

Really looking forward to seeing everyone at training tonight – it’s the start of the journey to get our club back to being a force on and off the ground again.
