In particular for the Under 12s who played with limited players for a lot of the season, there was great character shown by all players who gave their all to make sure the team stuck together. Well done to all involved, lets hope you are all back next year.
The Under 13s had a great season, just missing out on a finals berth. The team made big improvements from last season and credit must go to coach Ricky Rainbird and his coaching staff for building a team that is working together very well. Also well done to Donna Rainbird for managing the team yet again. I'm sure the boys appreciate your work. Well done Donna.
Congratulations to the Under 14s for finishing on top of the ladder and the Under 16s for finishing fourth. Both teams have had some great wins this season and we will be all barracking for them during the finals. Let's bring home a flag or two you Eagles!
