Wel­come to Moss­man!

Ju­niors and se­niors host huge day at Shark Tank

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT - Jessica Dud­ley

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.
