After 50 long years we have a win in Premier Division!!

From my end this is our biggest win in clubs history, the club has been working tirelessly for so many years to play in premier Division & we all know the challenges we have had over the past 3 years & to finally see it happen, makes me very happy, but also shows us on and off field the club is up to playing Premier Division footy & let’s hope for many years to come.

A huge thanks to Ryan Gordan and Leo who did a mountain of work Saturday & to Bruce Ward for looking after the past players & supporters on the hill. Also, like to thank the EFNL media team for making the day very special & who put on a fantastic show.

U19s narrowly lost, but boys are really improving & really all buying into the club.

Development/Reserves very proud of all who played on Saturday & to have a really strong win is fantastic for a our club. Seniors proud is understatement, but for all the guys who worked their ass’s off not only in pre-season but for the past 4/5 years I’m extremely happy for you all.

A shout out to Pete Green our Performance Coach who we employed to get the guys nice & fit. Let’s hope this holds us in good stead going forward.

To Doncaster we can’t wait to play you queens birthday weekend at your home ground. We have a fantastic rivalry & to Sean and the club we wish all the best, this is why we love local footy.

Let hope this week was 1 of many more wins for us in Premier Division which I’m sure it will be with our coaches, players, supporters, sponsors and committee, the clubs in really good shape.

We've locked in our date for the Lady's luncheon - June 5th - we hope all the partners, mothers, sisters and friends can make it to what is always a great day at the club!

Go Lions!!!

From the President - Peter Sowersby
