    Welcome to season 2019 all players, sponsors, supporters and families whether new, old or returning.

    3 months into the job and still another couple before the ball bounces for round 1, it has been hectic already but it’s a challenge that I’m enjoying.

    We have been setting up structures to ensure that the league side has the best chance of succeeding in the year ahead. This started with the early reappointment of Justin Wood as head coach to allow for the continual implementation of his plans and game style into a 3rd season. To help with this we have brought in Jason Firkins as reserves coach – Justin & Jason have a successful past working relationship and we are hoping that this continues. Jeremy Thorn has moved from the 3rds job into our colts coaching role and will look to continue his proven development skills with these young men. Adam “Puppa” Watts will lead the 3rds into the season and we are expecting big things this year. Adrian “AJ” Hughes once again takes the reigns of the masters and will no doubt keep their undefeated streak intact. Please join me in congratulating all the coaches and working with them to help move our club forward.

    Lastly, I would like to thank VP Matt Gray and the rest of the committee who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes since the AGM to ensure that this is going to be one of our best season yet. After seeing a few new faces at the Xmas party & on the training track, I’m really excited about our first function on the year –the Quiz night. Red is already in quizmaster mode getting the questions ready, so make sure you get your table of 10 ready. It is going to be at the DOS in the community hall on March 16th with a 6:30 start. It’s going to be a great night!!

    Bring on round 1….. #eels2019
