Footy Is Back – The Wrap from Round 1
Well we do have the right sponsor at Hobart because you couldn’t say anything but “Oh What A Feeling” as our under 18’s ran on to the TCA on Saturday. It has been a long time coming but to see such an enthusiastic group who have some wonderful mentors to assist them compete at this level says great things for the future of the Hobart Football Club. We believe we have the youngest group in this competition which may sometimes show on the scoreboard but if their attitude has any say in the matter we will be successful.
The reserves were the real deal and there are plenty of standouts who will keep pressure on for a senior berth. The reserves lead from the front and ran all day, took on the opposition when kicking against the wind and were just a great unit. Well done. Standout players included Cody Myzyk, Dean Jetson and Brad Davies.
The senior outfit started with no less than ten new players and took a while to settle. The second quarter was sensational as the backs shut down all avenues to goal on Brighton and this display showed what we are capable of. Our third quarter was a little disappointing and kicking into a gale force wind in the last left us looking down the barrel. Of our new players Callan Newman, Marcus Fitze, Ben Wells and Stuart Paterson are all new players and certainly amongst our best.
Saturday night was alive at the den with a large turnout and an enjoyable evening for all. This week we travel to Huonville to challenge the Lions and I hope to see a large supporter base at the game. We always enjoy the hospitality Huonville provides us and look forward to the battle for the “Graham McVilly Shield”. We are sure it will be fiercely contested and that the winning side will proudly display the shield for all to see.
