TFNC heads to Mansfield
Tatura Football Netball Club has elected its football and netball leadership groups ahead of the season opener against Mansfield this weekend.
Alexandra Bertram, Emma Ryan, Rachel Thomson, Sarah Casey and Steph Hicks will head up the netballers and there is a distinct air of anticipation ahead of the 2017 playing season for the girls.
TFNC vice-president Simon Pogue said the netballers rounded out their preseason against Tongala and despite a few absences, the fine-tuning was completed.
Tom Miller will captain the seniors’ side with Matt Ryan and Luke McGill supporting as vice-captains.
Chris Ryan, Andy Civarella, Mitch Shoulders Elliott and Rian McGough will make up the seniors’ leadership team.
Dylan Minutoli will captain the reserves side with Daniel Maher and Jack Ballantyne supporting in the vice-positions.
The refreshed under 18s side will be led by captain Jayden Armstrong who will be supported by vice-captains David Comi and Callum Minutoli and deputy vice-captain Charlie Hill.
The club would like to extend a warm invitation for members of the community to join them on Thursday evenings for a meal.
Enjoy the freedom of not having to cook and pop down to the clubrooms for the Maxine Parkin inspired delicacies with a Roast Master O’Toole special thrown in here and there.
‘‘It will be a great evening,’’ Mr Pogue said.
After a complete modern overhaul of the club’s merchandise range, Jenny Lovel will be selling the new range on Thursday night — a collection of polos, hoodies, trucker caps, scarves and stubby holders will be available for purchase.
There will be buses departing Tatura, with stops in Mooroopna and Shepparton, at 7 am and 9 am at a cost of $20. One bus will be returning immediately after the game, while the remaining two will stay until after the game and then for an evening meal at the Delatite Hotel in Mansfield before returning home.
