Turners Beach Football Club
SEAGULLS CLUB NOTES
Posted 6 September 2014Welcome to all of our loyal supporters to the 2014 NWFA grand final. This day promises to be a
fantastic one in the club’s history and has been in the making for the past 12 months.
Firstly, congratulations to David and the boys for reaching the last Saturday of the season, It is
just desserts for all the hard work you have all put in over the past 10 months, but there is one
more big fish to fry before we finish.
In today’s senior premiership match were are pitted against the most successful club of the past
decade in Motton Preston, and if past results between us this season are a guide, with all games
decided by less than two goals, then it’s going to be a thriller. It’s going to take a massive
commitment from everyone involved, but if we do all the right things then the result will take care
of itself. Good luck today guys and do yourselves and the club proud by bringing the flag home.
As mentioned earlier congratulations to David for his outstanding efforts throughout the year.
To our reserves coach Richo, who has arguably one of the toughest jobs going around, well
done mate. Thanks for your efforts over the past two years, as his team showed improvement
over the season although failing to make the finals.
To all who have contributed to the club in any capacity throughout the year, a big thank you goes
out to you all. Without your assistance we would not be where we are today and I hope that it
continues into the future. Your hard work and commitment to the club has seen us get back as a
power club both on and off the ground.
Also to all of our sponsors, be it major, or minor, or player sponsorship, thank you for coming
on board in 2014 and contributing to our long term viability. We look forward to seeing you all back
again next season.
After today’s game everyone is welcome back to the clubrooms, so let’s all get along and make it
a night to remember.
Tomorrow we will be counting our Best and Fairest for both senior and reserves, getting underway
at 12midday. There will also be the usual calcuttas along with other entertainment.
It will also be silly Sunday with a fancy dress theme so dust off the old rags and dress up to make
it a fun day.
Upcoming Annual Dinner & Trophy presentation -
Saturday, 20th September.
Please rsvp to Kathy as soon as possible to book your seat.
GO CREEKER’S - LETS BE THE NUMBER 1 TEAM IN 2014.

EAGLES CLUB NOTES
Posted 8 July 2014
In a season full of many lows, today we we want to touch on the more
encouraging things that have come out of the 2014 season. New playing
coach Brady Stubbs brought determination, passion and a group of young,
new talent, who were not only exciting in patches through the year, but also
showed that Spreyton is heading in the right direction for the future.
Brady along with senior assistant coach, Todd Bryan, Reserves playing coach
Adam Dyke and the group of loyal, hard - working and committed blokes who
showed up each and every week, no matter the game or weather, have helped
our club through another hard year. We hope you all stick together to reap the
benefits of what you have put in. The Spreyton Football Club cannot thank the
playing group enough for their efforts this year.
We would also like to thank the following people for all their hard work during the
year- Phillip Gilchrist & Brendon Larkins (Match Managers), Gordon Tuck
(Bench Coach), Brenton Filz & Jamie Davis (Runners), Addison Predojevic and
all who helped run water, Steve Kenzie (Reserve Umpire), Greg Williamson &

Steward), Ted Van Overmeeren (Time Keeper), Barry Graue (Gate), Gregg,

(Saturday morning gopher), Eric (Boss of the club), Jarrod Pearce
(NWFA delegate & Program Notes), Troy Donald (Club Handy Man), Sarah Donald
(Treasurer & more) and ALL the SFC Committee!! Thank you doesn’t seem enough,
as without each person doing their role, the club doesn’t function as well. If we have
forgotten anyone, we are truly sorry!!
Of course that bring us to our sponsors. It has been said before and it will be said
again, without you all we wouldn’t have the club we have.. The appreciation we
have for each of you is beyond words. But we want to start with THANK YOU!!

ROBINS CLUB NOTES
Posted 6 September 2014
Welcome to Robin – land.
Last weekend provided mixed results with the reserves making amends for their
semi – final loss against Motton Preston, to account for the premier Forth in the
preliminary final, but our senior team found Motton Preston a bit too good and will
miss out on the grand final after playing in the season finale for the past two years.
Despite the win last Saturday, our reserves will have to find a bit more if they are to
turn the tables on Motton Preston which is the only team to have beaten us this
season. With the seniors out of finals contention the selectors have the option to
include those who have qualified to play in today’s team, so it is going to be
interesting to see what they come up with as the Robins try to win their first grand
final since 2001.
With plenty of numbers to choose from this season the selectors have done their
best to give as many as possible a game, but they have the difficult task of selecting
the best 22 for today and regrettably there will be a few who miss out. The club will
share in the disappointment of those who do so and extends it appreciation to
everyone who has been a part of the grand final journey.
Last Sunday was a day of celebration for the club with Joshua Rockliff being awarded
the NWFA’s top individual award, the Les Hicks Medal. It was a wonderful recognition
of the year Josh has enjoyed and continues the growing tradition of the club’s medal
winners, our 12th in all.
Also congratulations to our reserve’s assistant coach Deon Heyward, who was awarded
the trophy for the leading goal kicker in the competition, finishing the year two shy of the
milestone century. It would be fitting that after a successful year Deon could finish grand
final day with the three figures beside his name and the premiership cup to cap it all off.
The committee would like to thank all our supporters and sponsors for season 2014.
We hope you have had a great time throughout the year and hopefully our reserves can
reward everyone with a win today.
Finally, the committee would like to thank everyone who helped out throughout the year.
Your support cannot be thanked enough.
Trophy and Dinner Presentation will be held on September the 20th so please everyone
get along to that, more details in the next week or so.
Best and fairest count will be held tomorrow at the clubrooms, for both Senior and Reserves
starting at 12noon.

HAWKS CLUB NOTES
Posted 15 August 2014
With Rosebery Park Oval in the best condition it has been in for the last home game
of the season last Saturday, it was a great way to end the home and away season.
In the Reserves eight soring shots to three in the first question set up a good win for the
boys. With Jie, Shane and Jordan leading the way in defence and the midfield, Ryan and
Hubba kicking six and four, the team had a solid win in preparation for their first finals
campaign in a number of years.
Congratulations to T-Bone, T-Mawer and the boys on reaching the elimination final, it’s
really just reward for Jay, Shane, Prousey and a number of other players who have for a
number of years stuck by the Reserves and along the way have taken some big hidings.
Get out there today boys and give it you all.
In the Seniors Sam, Sparra and Brad, led the way with great support from Wads and
Jesse-James. Leading by 10 goals in the third quarter the side seemed to relax a bit in
the knowledge that they had done enough to gain a place in the finals. To East Ulverstone’s
credit they fought the game out and despite it being their last quarter of football for the year
gave it their all in the last. Hopefully our players had one eye on the finals and after last
year’s success are fully ready to put in a four quarter effort.
Congratulations to Jared who has reached 100 games for the club, He starting back in 2008
and for a number of years was one of the players who regularly stepped up and doubled up
to make sure we had two sides. Jared is a quiet achiever and has developed into a solid
defender and a vital part of the Reserves success. Well done.
Congratulations to all players, coaches, committee and supporters on both sides making
the finals. Hopefully this is the start we can build on and we can have a big impact on the
The Best and Fairest was held on Sunday and a big congratulations to Jay Rubens on winning
his second reserves’ award and Sam Mawer on winning his third consecutive honour.
Voting in the awards –
Reserves: 1st Jay Rubens 59, 2nd Jie Hodge 24, 3rd Jayden Everett – Hall and Ryan Jordan 17.
Seniors: 1st Sam Mawer 66, 2nd Josh Hall 41, 3rd Ryan Wheldon (Best U21) 21.

DEMON CLUB NOTES
Posted 6 September 2014
Welcome one and all to the biggest game of the year, the one we have all been waiting for and it promises to be a cracker.
Last time Motton Preston and Turners Beach met was in the semi – final and it required extra time to decide the winner. Could we see that again?
In the preliminary final last Saturday, our boys played some great footy in their third encounter against the boys from Mount Roland in the space of four weeks. Talk about pressure football. To win in the manner they did was a credit to everyone and was another NWFA finals match in what has been the best the punters have seen in many years and today will be no exception.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our volunteer staff for their efforts this year, it’s a credit to you all. From Kenny Brown in the bar to young Jordan Jacobson doing the boundary, they just do their jobs with no fuss. There would be, on any given home game 20 to 30 young and older people at our little footy club on the hill just doing what is asked of them – volunteering. Words alone cannot express the club’s appreciation, but thank you one and all.
To our players, some of the guys will miss out today, but unfortunately it’s one of the things in team sport that is hard to take. With your disappointment I hope you can see your way clear to support your teammates and help them to the glory you all deserve.
To the guys who run out in the reserves and seniors today it is a phenomenal effort from you all, coaching staff, medical and support staff, thank you all for your dedication in the 2014 season.
There is only one more stone to be turned, it’s a massive rock, but I am sure if anyone can do it the DEMONS can.
To our sponsors thank you for all your help during another very successful season, on and off the field. You are a very big part of that.
To all red and blue supporters let’s make as much noise as we can in our quest for both beloved teams today.
We would also like to extend an invitation to all MPFC faithful, win lose or draw, to join in the grand final day festivites South of the Barron tonight for a frothy or two and a nice country meal.
To all teams playing in the grand finals today good luck and may the best team win.

PIES CLUB NOTES
Posted 30 August 2014.
The Pies have had a pretty good year on and off the field this season. We were fortunate
enough to host a home final on Sunday with both our teams competing. Despite the rain we
had a fantastic day with plenty of spectators coming through the gate!
A HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who pitched in last week and were out at the club
from as early as 8am to help out where they could! We have a great club which is built and
maintained by the fantastic support we have from our club members and officials.
The reserves had the tough task of knocking out Wesley Vale on the weekend. The boys put
in a fantastic team effort helping each other out all over the ground and doing the team thing
at every opportunity. We know our boys still have plenty left in the tank for the preliminary final
against Sheffield today. We unfortunately have lost to Sheffield on both occasions this season,
but our Pies have definitely improved and our supporters are looking forward to watching a
hard fought game
Some of the players who stood out last weekend Saturday Daniel Richardson, Josh Kirkwood,
Steve Guthrie and Lachlan Brazier. The boys have trained really hard this week with the support
of our seniors who were knocked out on Sunday and are ready for a big game!! Good luck to Ben
Cartledge, Norm Symmons and the boys.
To our seniors who were unlucky on being knocked out of the finals on Sunday. As a club we are
proud of the effort you have put up all season and making it one step further than last year. You
are a fantastic group of players and we are looking forward to keeping you all for next season and
taking the team all the way to the Grand Final next year.
A massive thank you to our coaches Nick Milbourne and Leigh Febey, who are both a massive
inspiration to our playing group. On behalf of our supporters, Life Members, players and executive
we would like to commend you on the job you have done this year!

CROWS CLUB NOTES
Posted 8 August 2014
I must say it’s good to be back from my overseas excursion. World Cup in Brazil, tennis at Wimbleton
and finally Commonwealth games in Glasgow. From what I have read on the net, Dad has kept the
notes flowing and as I’m still recovering from jet lag (and a wicked hangover from too much partying)
I’ll let him finish off as I know he has heaps of people to thank.Cheers Toby John.Well it hardly seems 19 weeks since we kicked off the season, but here we are at round 18 and today
spend the afternoon basking in the glorious sunshine of Rosebery. It is milestone days for Scaley,
playing his 50th and Rooey playing his 100th. All the best today guys and thank you for your loyal
support to the Crows.Again last week both teams gave their all, but against bigger, fitter and more talented opposition who
will both finish on top of the ladder the battle was too great. As has often been said before, no one
can challenge your commitment and courage and we are all proud of you. Let’s give the Hawks a
run for their money as we can still play a role in who plays next week.I would like to take this opportunity to thank our sponsors, some of whom have been with us since
the Crows were formed in 2000. Without you generous support the job of keeping the club viable
would be a very difficult one.Maree will have the dinner invitations out in the next few days, so please get your RSVP in as
soon as possible to make her job easier.To our volunteers who help out every week a huge thank you. Whether it be on the gate,
manning (or would that be ladying) the interchange box, blowing the siren, stocking the bar, or
cleaning up rubbish on Sunday, every little bit helps.I will be stepping down at our AGM, but I am pleased to announce that already we have people
in place to fill the important positions on the committee. If you, your wives, girlfriends, or mums
and dads would like to help out in 2015, please let me know so we can ensure they are nominated
for the committee.
All the best to the clubs who have earned the right to contest the finals. It is interesting to note
that four clubs will have both seniors and reserves playing so it’s going to be a real test of their
depth of players stocks.
