This week’s games

This week sees the first home game of the Season. Due to the newly re-surfaced ground the council will only allow two games on the ground each Saturday for the foreseeable future.

As such the Under 18s will often be required to play at a different venue. Games this week:

  • Under 18s – 9.30am New Town Oval (Bike Track) – entry $5, which includes a free ticket to Seniors/Reserves match at TCA
  • Reserves – 12pm at TCA Ground
  • Seniors – 2pm at TCA Ground
  • Womens on Sunday – 10.30am at New Town Oval

Last Week:

Last week’s games saw the Tigers take on Brighton, returning with maximum points and two big wins. The Tigers dominated botgameh , but still have room for improvement, something which we are hopeful of bringing in this week’s first home game of the season. The club can certainly sympathise with the position Brighton is in after our 2014 Season. Nobody wants to see clubs in the position Brighton were in at the start of the season with poor numbers, and we’re all hopeful that they are around for many years to come.

Hobart    3.2   9.7   12.8   20.11.133
Brighton 1.2   2.2    4.3    5.3.33
Goals: Reeves 7, Hadfield 6, Cripps, Triffett, Charlton, Goninon, Farid, Gough, Etchell.

On to this week’s games the Tigers are looking forward to the challenge of going for a 3-0 record in Seniors and Reserves against Cygnet. The under 18s playing their second game look forward to taking on last year’s fellow Grand Finalists Southern Storm in what should be a close encounter. The Women are playing against Lindisfarne tomorrow morning at New Town Oval, starting at 10.30am for those who can get along and show their support.
As per usual we wish our four sides luck for this round, and take the opportunity to thank all our sponsors for the year.

Old Players, Officials and Supporters Assoc get together

We invite you all to attend the TCA on Saturday 21st April for our First Home game at the New TCA surface. We plan to meet in the Top Bar next to the kiosk at 1230 for 1pm for a quiet Ale to celebrate the occasion. Yes the ground has undergone a complete levelling, new drainage & re surface since the end of the 2017 Season. The small grand stand next to the H C Smith stand has been demolished and a resurface of the car park will take place in the future. You will be able to see the plans for the complete future redevelopment of the TCA. We will be limited to seniors and reserves only at this stage and no training until the ground establishes.

Another highlight will be a NEW Electronic scoreboard which is currently being erected on the Eastern side of the ground.

1230 for 1pm Saturday 21st April TCA   Be There !!!!
