Footy is back after the long weekend off and the weather didn’t disappoint yet again. The build up to the football in round 8 started early this week with a club function on Thursday night at Hotel Brighton to thank the Coaches, Assistant Coaches and Team Managers across our teams. We are so privileged at Hampton Rovers to have some many great volunteers for our most important roles. We had 56 people across all age groups and representation from both junior and senior teams. On behalf of all of our kids, parents and club officials I would like to thank you all again for all you do.
Friday night saw another great night at the Rovers Local. Many parents popped in between 5-7.30pm to say hi, feed the kids or just burn some of that Friday energy off the kids before the weekend. This Friday night we have Women’s Footy under lights starting at 6.30pm. The bar will be open during the game and a BBQ will be running so please get down and support our Women’s team as a warm up to a great weekend.
Our teams had a great day on Sunday with mixed results across the age groups but plenty of smiles and fun regardless of the results. I would like to thank all those players and parents that are starting to drive the “Sweep the Sheds” culture and leave the grounds and rooms in a better state than you find them.
If you haven’t already had a look at Facebook, Instagram or here on our Website please have a look at the fantastic photos that have been posted by our social media team. Please continue to send your photos in so we can share them. We really love the ones that highlight our club mantra of Passion, Teamwork, Fun and Respect. Congrats to the team for getting into the SMJFL social spot yet again.
If you haven’t already got your tickets for the event of the year – Casino Royale – you only have a number of days left. If you have a late change of plans then no stress as tickets are available at the door. Our preference still remains for the pre-purchase so we can cater appropriately. Please get behind this key event in our social calendar. For more information see our website and you can book tickets here.
Good luck to all those playing Friday, Saturday and Sunday this week. #gorovers
