The Tatura Guardian - - News -

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.
