Tiger Talk – 23 March 2016


The next week leading up to season 2016 is full on so check your calendar and line up some of these events
Tonight Wednesday will see a grand scratch match between our reserves and DOSA’s and this will be a great chance to see some of the up and coming players.  Will commence around 6 o’clock at the TCA.

Thursday night will be a beauty when Hobart Football Club take on the DOSA club in a real battle for the Tye Bennett Cup.  This one is at the TCA commencing at 6.15pm. This is a must to see!

I spoke to the coach today for a few hints on our recruits and improvements and he said watch out for James McGee (injured in a car accident last year) but James is making a fantastic return to football.
Dylan Huxley showed a whole new side to his game when moved to defence against St Virgils two weeks ago.

Marcus Fitze (Former Lauderdale Captain and Midfielder) Is a welcome addition and will be a great person to have at our club, will play limited games but is an exceptional leader with young and old.

Caley Gough wandered up the hill from North Hobart under 18’s and looks very promising.

Thursday night also sees our Masters rules visiting Shark Park for a 5.30 practice match against Sorell and I must say the boys are full of confidence.  The masters rules are still recruiting so if you  are over 30 and have an interest in training at the TCA once a week and competing fortnightly give Paul Banks a call on 0417 983 450.  This is a great group who love their sport and have added an extra dimension to the Hobart Football Club.

Next Thursday 31st will see our final training run before round one, an outside barbeque while we watch training followed by jumper presentations and the calling of teams for round one.  Training kicks off at 6 pm and we hope to see lots of supporters, sponsors and friends at this evening.

We are desperately short of volunteers to assist in the canteen, on the gate or even an hour here and there behind the bar so if you are interested in becoming involved with our great club give Paul  a call on 0427 256 340  Give it a try you will love the experience and the people.

Last but never least we  are on the lookout for sponsors and members so click on the link and join a great team.
