We will still be looking for assistance in scoring and to help setup the lunches for home games so if that could be shared or volunteered by a parent that would be fantastic.

We do use the electronic scoreboard at Yarraville but that is a simple task which we will be able to assist with getting underway.


We would like to invite the Team to Train next Thursday 20th Dec at Yarraville Oval on Turf with the senior group , followed by a BBQ.


We hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year.
