Tiger Talk


Leadership Announcements

We are pleased to announce co-captains this year in Sam Reeves and Liam Azzopardi. Sam has been a captain over the previous years and has been an outstanding servant of the footy club. Liam has returned after a stint in the TSL and has shown outstanding professionalism throughout pre-season!
It’s been an interesting time lately with two practice games called off and both out of Hobart’s control. St Virgils was called off due to dangerous conditions and Longford was called off due to a player shortage at Longford! So after several intra clubs, we are finally playing our first opposition in a practice game this Thursday night against North Hobart, supporters are encouraged to attend from 6pm.

The boys have ramped up training just lately with extra weekend running sessions and hopefully this will pay off against a young fit North Hobart side! We welcome another signing, tall utility James Pulford from Clarence, into our side. Next Wednesday the 14th March we will take on DOSA in the annual Ty Bennett cup! It’s an exciting time to be a Tiger with amazing numbers on the track and new players turning up every night. The key now is to mould the new with the old and educate the group as quick as possible. Get on board the Tiger train as we take you for a ride in 2018!

Membership

It’s more important than ever that you purchase your membership! Limited access to the TCA for training has meant it’s harder than usual for us to derive income from memberships, the bar and other opportunities. Please purchase your membership online or contact Joshua Munting (membership@hobartfc.com.au or 0458 015 332). Social memberships start from just $10.

Training

Due to surface upgrades at the TCA, we have some challenging times ahead this year with training set to occur at different venues, nights and times. The club is awaiting confirmation of regular training venues from Council this Tuesday and will provide updates to Players, Coaches, Members and Supporters later in this week.
