ROUND 17 V CARNGHAM LINTON
Season 2018 draws to an end for all except our under 15s. While it’s our aim to have multiple sides competing in the final series in the future, that is for us to work on, and for the 15s to wave the Emu banner this year.
It is a great feeling to finish a season knowing that while we still have lots of work to do, we can look to 2019 with optimism and knowledge that we have laid the foundations for the whole clubs future success. This season seemed to fly by after the difficulties of previous years. Thanks so much to Greg and assistants in coaching , recruiting and doing all the hard work to set us on this path to an exciting 2019.
Most of all, thank you to all our players, from Aus-kickers to Seniors, you have all represented our club very well and your attitude and competitive spirit is a credit to yourselves and your respective coaches.
The Under 12s finished the year off in the same spirit they have played all year, with plenty of unselfish sharing the ball around to try to get all players to have kicked a goal this year. Skipton 11.4-70 to Carngham Linton 0.0-0. Awards, Pinkies- Thomas Gardiner , Skipcoin - Nicholas Bodman , Bakers Delight- Oscar Sim.
The Under 15s were victorious again , 23.15-153 to 1.1-7. Award to Campbell Corbett. As I have mentioned the 15s will be representing us in the finals series, having finished the home and away rounds undefeated. They play Beaufort in the Qualifying Final at Learmonth, commencing at 9.15am. It would be great to see a huge Emu crowd to show our support.
Carngham Lintons Under 18 side will be playing finals and showed what a good side they are against our undermanned 18s. It has been a difficult season for our boys, with some promise being hampered by slim numbers and not helped by injuries. As a club we will be focused on getting out of the cyclical roundabout of junior Football, as numbers wax and wane as players move through the ranks. This feast or famine trend needs a lot of attention over the off season.
