After securing the TSL Senior Premiership in 2016 the Club is looking forward to the 2017 season with great anticipation.
The Club's loss of premiership players has been widely publicised and is not the preferred end to a Premiership season, however this situation has also paved the way for the clubs young talent to step into senior roles. The club has had some great inclusions this season in the playing group Zac Webster, Harry Parker, Dylan Grant and Josh Davie. Off the field we have added Nathan Foale as Senior Assistant and Jamie Ling as Development League Coach. The club is very proud of these appointments and welcome both former players back to the Black & White.
Registration Day is to be on 20th February at KGV starting at 5.30pm to 7.00pm at KGV.
This is for all players (Auskick to Under 18) or alternatively you can register online now at:

“Jordon’s team first mentality has pushed him up in the eyes of his team mates and has gained great respect from them as they know he will play his role on game day every week, his application to a consistent training ethic and hard work on and off the field has raised his game to another level”.
“Jordon is very easy to coach through always wanting to better himself and the team; this is a fantastic recognition for all the hard work he has put into developing his game”.
Tasmanian State League General Manager, Shaun Young, congratulated Arnold on winning the award that recognises one of Tasmania’s greatest footballers, former Richmond star Matthew Richardson.
“The Matthew Richardson Medal is named after one of Tasmania’s modern day greats, and it is great recognition for Jordon to receive the medal in his first full year in the State League, Jordon’s achievement demonstrates to those players that have the attributes and desire to play at the highest possible level in the state of what can be achieved if they have the commitment and work ethic to improve and take their game to the next level” Young said.
