With Round 1 of the 2018 season now here, it is an exciting prospect having so many new faces come on board this season which shows the hard work that everyone has put in of the last couple of years is starting to pay off.
The senior coaches in both football & netball have put in a power of work to be able to once again bring so many quality people into our playing groups this year which is a credit to them both to keep our club growing.
I am excited to see what all of our playing groups can achieve this year as I honestly believe that the sky is the limit as there are so many quality people and players now involved.
The committee has also undertaken a few changes with Dale Skinner having to step aside due to ill health but we are all hoping for a quick recovery so we can welcome him back into the Saints family soon.
I now find myself in the President’s chair which is a huge challenge and big shoes to fill but with the fantastic people we have on board this year I feel that we can keep the club moving in the right direction.
David Hansford is now the Vice President and brings a vast array of knowledge as he has been part of many successful clubs so we are very lucky to have him on board.
Jonathon Campbell is now the Junior Vice President and as with everything Jonno does he will dive in head first and make the role his own.
Anne-Marie Barry is the Secretary once again and anyone that dealt with Anne-Marie last year knows that she will give it her all and go the extra mile.
Julie Hawkins is now the Treasurer and what a job she has done already jumping straight into the fold and making the clubs finances head in the right direction in 2018.
The general committee is as strong as I can ever remember it being with so many quality people ready to put their hand up and help whenever and wherever they can.
We have faced a few challenges already and I’m sure there will be more to come but with the great group of people involved we can overcome anything in 2018.
It’s onward and upward for the Saints in 2018 so let’s get to the games to support our teams and cheer them home.
