Vote count 2016

Sunday saw the vote count held down at the club rooms, and both grades weren't decided until Saturdays votes were read, which made for a great count!

In the reserves, the winner was first year player Michael Crawford (80), second was Arun Panjwani (71), while Ash Stals (66) rounded out the top three.

In the seniors a fast finishing Tom Lowden (135) overtook five time winner Rohan Walmsley (131) in the final round, with Rowan Moody capping off a terrific year with third place.

Well done to all, the winners will be awarded their trophies at presentation night taking place on September 9th at the club rooms.

Entry will be $10 which will include a burger and drink on arrival, please RSVP to James via so the club can confirm numbers for the day.

Round 17 2016 – UHS-VU

Saturday saw us take to the road for the last time this year with the destination being Brens Oval, Parkville, the home turf of UHS-VU. Unfortunately both games went the way of the hosts, the seniors staged a last quarter comeback though it wasn't enough to get them over the line, which now makes it impossible for them to make the finals.

Vote count

After the results of last week.we now know that this Saturday will be the last game of the year for our boys. As such, the vote count will be held on Sunday at the club rooms. Come along from midday to see who takes out the B&Fs in both grades!
