THE Port Dou­glas Crocs are gear­ing up for their first match of the 2013 Cairns AFL sea­son which will be con­tested un­der lights tonight at the Croc Pit for the first time.

The Crocs will take on Cen­trals Trin­ity Beach and plan to un­veil up to 10 of their new re­cruits.

Crocs coach Brad Cooper said he was con­fi­dent the new play­ers would add a new di­men­sion to the team.

‘‘We have had quite a few train­ing ses­sions now with the new guys, it’s time to see how they go un­der the heat of bat­tle,’’ he said. ‘‘Indi­ca­tions are look­ing good. ‘‘The team as a whole are start­ing to jell and un­der­stand our game plan. ‘‘But it’s go­ing to be a process.’’ There will be food and drink avail­able at the Croc Pit can­teen and live en­ter­tain­ment af­ter the game.

Crocs pres­i­dent Andy Smith said the club had a huge sea­son ahead to cel­e­brate its 25th an­niver­sary and en­cour­aged sup­port­ers to get in­volved.

‘‘We want peo­ple to be in­volved and there are still club mem­ber­ships avail­able,’’ he said.

‘‘The Crocs are a great club to be in­volved with, whether it’s as a mem­ber or as a vol­un­teer help­ing out in the can­teen.’’

A gen­eral so­cial mem­ber­ship is avail­able which will give you free en­try to all home games.
