Welcome back for season 2015/2016
Welcome and put your seatbelt on for Banks FC season 2015-2016 in what is shaping up to be a season of great magnitude in the clubs history. Banks FC has a long and distinguished history of success on and off the field and for those joining us for the first time thank you and welcome to the greatest football club in the land.
2014-2015 was surely the year of the Double Dog! Congratulations to all that were involved throughout the year from pre season training until the safe return of our boys from their sojourn to Thailand. What a year the Club had on the paddock and off. We welcomed some great people to the club, award winners, fantastic volunteers and of course their families who without them the club just doesn't have the same feel.
Thank you once again to our trusted and loyal, along with the new sponsors who have been generous enough to back this club financially, without them footy doesn't stand a chance. Many of our sponsors are ex players and family members who are giving back to a club that has given them so much in this town. We encourage all players, supporters and families to spread the word of these sponsors that support our Club, their details are at the bottom of our newsletter and also in the Little Blue Book. Need an aircon fitted? Bathroom installed or your next house needs a conveyancer, do the right thing. Keep it in the kennel.
Thank you to the outgoing committee, no job was to big or arduous and were always completed with the teamwork and professionalism that makes our Club what it is. Being on many committees is a thankless job but our Club isn't like most clubs, from the players, supporters and myself personally, another thank you for your efforts throughout season 2014-2015. Behind the scenes, committee members and volunteers give up their time and effort to make functions, trainings and game days run smoothly. Trainers, water carriers, timekeepers and everyone else involved in getting the boys on the park are an integral cog in the Banks FC machine. To any players, partners or supporters that would like to get involved with jobs on or off the field please approach a committee member and your help will be greatly appreciated. To those who have signed on to the committee for this season, here we go again.
In some exciting news this year Banks will be entering an under 12's team in the Friday night competition. Mike "Harro" Harrison has put his hand up as Vice President of the junior committee and Domonic Miraglia is coaching the side. Details of the juniors program is also attached to the newsletter, on our facebook page and also in the little blue book.
Mark Tyrrell and Will Johnson have signed on to lead the Division 1 again this year. Congratulations and thank you for the results you created last season and the entire Banks family is behind you again this year. Todd Hayes and Brendan Baldock have stepped down from coaching the Division 2 after a season of great stability and ultimate success. Thank you both and congratulations for your efforts throughout the year. Welcome aboard Andrew Pope and Brad Wiese to the helm of the mighty Killer B's. Your credentials speak for themselves and with the calibre of these men along with Barra and Tyza running the show we all know the players are in good hands.
As a club, season 2015-2016 is there for the taking. Opportunities will be seized and challenges met, mateships for life will be forged and memories made. We will stand as one for the duration, seeing challengers and doubters fall by the wayside. With the Banks FC family's eyes firmly on the prize, this season shapes up to be one for the history books.
