Welcome to the Power House Amateur Football Club
It’s already May and we are three weeks into the Season. I thought it would be great to touch base with everyone and let you all know what’s been happening.
It’s been great to see some past players and supporters at our first few games. Life Members and Club Legends Ian Dakin and Peter Dakin as well as Life Members Cameron Macleod, Ian Hammet and James Demetrie.
Former Senior Coach, 2003 Best and Fairest Winner and 2006 Premiership Captain Darren Cooper, 2010 Captain and 2006 Premiership Player and Coach Reece Humphries and 1980’s legends Mick Bray and Andy Angeli have also been sighted along with former coach and player Tony Miller and great club supporter Russell Johnston. And at last weeks game it was great to catch up with 2001/2002 Senior Coach Peter O’Connor who dropped in to watch the boys.
Despite losing the first couple of games, the spirit and morale of our group is good with Coaches Dave Matthews and Traolach O’Sullivan and Captain Adam Collett leading the playing group working hard on and off the track to get the Seniors on the right side of the ledger. The Reserves are already on the board and are looking to return to their solid early form.
The Women’s Team has been close in their first two games and with a bit of luck, could have won both. They continue to work looking for the right balance and style to kick-start their season. Overall the women are focused and motivated and the season will turn soon.
It’s also great to see many of our players and supporters using our updated website to search for information and using our shop to purchase merchandise and gear, search for details about both our Men’s and Women’s Teams…It’s been a great start. Don’t forget we have new club beanies and scarves now available for purchase.
Thanks to our 2019 Club Sponsors – Steritech, Regis, Spinktel, Dakin Mayers, Fusion Heating and Cooling, Bargain Car Rentals, SJB Planning, Carpe Diem along with returning long term sponsors, DISKMANdotNet, Printing Intelligence and Brainwave HR. These great organisations donate funds to support our club so let’s make sure we get behind them and support them and their businesses.
This year sees us celebrate the 60th Anniversary of our first ever Premiership Team, the all-conquering Invincibles who went undefeated in 1959 to bring home the silverware. They will be celebrated at the Past Players Day on Saturday 20 July 2019 where we will be hosting a triple header with all 3 teams playing at home. Details to follow shortly via email and social media.
For those who want to keep abreast of what’s going on at the club, please follow us on these social media platforms:
This week we have another triple header at home and it would be great to see as many as possible head to the Ross Gregory to support all 3 teams.
Looking forward to seeing you all down at the club over the next few weeks.
Tear ‘em down.
