Welcome to Mossman!
Juniors and seniors host huge day at Shark Tank
IT was all happening at the Mossman showgrounds as the Mossman Port Douglas Sharks club hosted Super Saturday at the Shark Tank.
The Sharks hosted four clubs – White Rock, Mareeba, Ivanhoes and the Kangaroos – across 27 games of junior footy including an Under 15 girls game between Mareeba and White Rock.
We also hosted a “thank the sponsors day” which was a great success.
An estimated 700 people passed through our gates to come watch some local footy – this is by far one of the most successful days for the junior Sharks in some years.
Hosting a day like this doesn’t come easy. Volunteers are required from every angle: lines men, canteen helpers, time keepers, ground officials, referees and ground set up and pack down crew.
Without these it is difficult to produce such an event. We also thank the senior club for working with the juniors to make this day happen.
For the first time in season 2017 our Under 16 boys played at home and put on an outstanding display of footy for the home crowd to enjoy.
Enjoy was exactly what the home crowd did especially with a win on home turf against Mareeba.
Highlight of the day was hearing the boys belt out the team song in front of all the supporters.
At the conclusion of the juniors day the seniors kicked off, hosting Kangaroos. The Under 19s had a loss but later there were wins to both the reserves and A grade sides.
This was an exceptionally successful day for the Sharks Club young and old.
We are on the verge of something very special, so let’s keep building. There is an amazing vibe around the club and it certainly is a privilege to be a part of this special family.
