This week you would have thought it would be easy to write the newsletter and record notes but excitement, confusion and hope have blurred all. It was wonderful to be at the last roster game on Saturday with such a huge crowd turning out and to know that we are playing finals. We can finally say the f-word, finals are here and it’s been a long wait; the club’s first time since 2008.

BIG WEEK IN FOOTY
To all our supporters we thank you so much for travelling this long journey to again play finals and I am told our boys will not disappoint. My notes have been well written by one of our great supporters who lives in England and I have copied these to demonstrate how football affects the whole world not just our back yard.
“I’ve been out of touch with my computer all Bank Holiday weekend having spent the time at our static caravan in Lymm.
When I opened your e mail I had just found the result on Hobart FC Facebook. I expected disappointing news after last weeks loss, so the result has put me in a good mood. Whatever happens next week the season has been a relative success. The result turns a disappointing season in to a good one, reward for all the hard work behind the scenes.
I’ve been following the stats on Fox Sports SFL website. Congratulations to all the players but especially the three who played in all the games (Sullivan, Reeves and Woods) another three played in 17 (Huxley ,Allie and Stephens).In all 18 players reached double figures. What happened to Triffett and Langdale are they injured?
So considering the number of injuries the overall turn out was good. A word for the reserves who have done the club proud. The Colts managed to complete the season with a few goals in their last game. It takes character to front up week in and week out in a losing side. Next year with another 12 months under their belts should make them more competitive.”

Another Tiger’s (Touch Footy) Premiership –
Good news is contagious and we are proud of our touch football team who have enjoyed a premiership win in the inaugural season, during a cold winter nights at Wentworth Park and on Friday night came away with the Premiership cup for the season. Well done ladies and gentlemen.
On the social side you will notice a couple of new look players this week as some locks have fallen. Woodsy gave up his dreadlocks on Saturday and Sam Reeves looks like he will be 5 seconds faster over 100 metres with his new look. It was all part of a fun night at the Den.
Saturday night will be back at the den from 7 so get along and enjoy good company amongst friends.
