PRAHRAN ASSUMPTION FOOTBALL CLUB
Passionate Community Participation
Newsletter Edition 5 2017
A HISTORY making day last Saturday with three sets of brothers, all Assumption Collegians, in the winning team v Emmaus St Leo’s.
Pictured left to right: Josh Hogarth, 32, and Ged Hogarth, 30, Tom Freeman, 23, and Dan Freeman, 27, and Will Brereton, 21, and James Brereton, 20, all played in the seniors together for the first time, evidence the Assumption connection continues to grow.
Appropriately the former ACK players wore the old school colours as our away strip.
This Saturday we host neighbour Melbourne High School Old Boys in another must-win game if we aspire to top two aspirations.
While the boys do battle the Ladies luncheon day will be in full swing .
Always a great day upstairs in the Prahrantonians Room overlooking the ground. All welcome, check Facebook for more details.
PLEASE NOTE THE SCHEDULED HOME GAME LUNCHEON FOR SATURDAY MAY 20 HAS BEEN CANCELLED. NEW DATE IN JULY TO BE CONFIRMED.
ALSO LOCK IN FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 22 for the annual Jack Morgans Luncheon at Toorak Park. More details to come.
Seniors: Our best display of the season to win by 58 points in enemy territory v Emmaus t Leo’s. Now second on the ladder and a must-win game at home this Saturday v MHSOB which has also started the season well. The undefeated Reserves zoomed to the top of the ladder with a thumping 116 point win. Rick “Chief’ Ellis, perhaps inspired by a visit from Tasmania by his father was a stand out with 11 goals. The Club XVII completed a clean sweep with a 10 point win over MHSOB and is second on the ladder.
Player awards to Adam Sleight (Bush Inn voucher), Tom Atwell (Hagen’s Meats ), Dan Freeman (Toscano’s Fruiterers) and in the Reserves Eliott Christopher (Grill’d Windsor) and Rick Ellis (Pizza Religion).
Netball: Clinic for all players is booked in for Friday July 7 at Romanis Centre, from 10 am to 1pm followed by a sausage sizzle at Toorak Park.
Community Sport Program: The CSP team will host a BBQ at Toorak Primary school this coming Thursday with our leadership group assisting. The CSP has started its program and this month move to St Joseph’s and Armadale Primary under the management of Steve Zayler.
Again we thank Australian Printed Ribbon as the CSP naming rights sponsor.
