Junior Update – Mother’s Day Footy

Footy fever has just begun and we can look forward to some mighty efforts by our players this season. Some returning players have grown and developed their skills, while new players provide a welcome injection of energy and camaraderie into the Club. New friendships are forged across the grassy (and many times, muddy) footy fields across Melbourne and battles are hard fought and won – and lost at times.

A special Happy Mother’s Day to all mums. You are integral to this Club and of course to our players. We hope you enjoy your children’s games this Sunday especially.  There may be winners and losers in our new Federal budget that has just been handed down, but our Club members and players are all winners.

Here are the Round 3 – Hampton Rovers Junior Football Results:

  • Under 11 Div 1 – Lost by 42 to East Brighton Vampires
  • Under 11 Div 4 – Won by 17 over East Sandy
