Tim part of GWS Giants practice match
Last Friday was the start of a new chapter in the football career of talented Tocumwal player, Tim Garlick, who was invited to play in a Greater Western Sydney Giants intraclub practice match.
Tim has headed to Sydney to play for Sydney Hills Eagles in the NEADL.
This is a feeder club for the new AFL club, GWS Giants.
Training is three nights a week and weekends, but knowing Tim he will be thriving on it.
His parents Deb and Hiram are understandably proud of his achievements in various forms of sport over the past 10 years and are hoping all the travelling might start to pay off.
We wish Tim well and will follow his career throughout the season.

●●● From a premiership to lack of senior players in a short space of time is the reason Tocumwal Football/netball Club is having a crisis meeting at the clubrooms on Friday night at 7pm.
The club is struggling to attract senior players.
The club has a proud history of being able to hold its own in the Murray Football League, winning premierships in all grades over the years and having a large number of supporters and financially viable.
Now senior players are thin on the ground, thus the crisis meeting is called for input from supporters on how to entice new players to Tocumwal.
