Marty leading his happy gang from the field

Sparks helping out umpiring in the under 13s was a little strong in his ball ups, where did the ball go? Tom Trewin asks

vs BOORT 25TH JULY

Another win for the Demons against Boort, that makes it 4 wins from the last 5 games, a welcome home to James Coatsworth after a stint in Cairns and a trip overseas
Details of the day are in the" DEMONS DEN "at the top of this page,  I think the scribe may have gone a little to far this time in his quotes of the day!



vs StARNAUD JULY 21ST & SUNRISE PROGRAM

A cool winters day at StArnaud started well with the Under 13s having a one point win (thanks to StArnaud for providing players to make up the numbers), the under 16s were no match for their opposition, the Reserves let the home side get away but fought hard to go down by 2 points and in the Seniors the game was over after the first term with the Demons kicking 7 goals.
On Tuesday morning the Club catered for the Sunrise program doing their weather crosses from the Steam train site.











BACK TO FRONT DRAW

On Saturday night the Club held its annual Back to Front Draw, the theme for the night was Super Hero's.
With three tickets still to be drawn out the remaining people decided to split the $2000, Frank Mathieson, Sharron Rooney and Val Hickmont shared the prize.


vs DONALD JULY 4th

The day started with both junior sides playing well, the under 13s going down by 1 point and the Under 16s playing well to have a win against a side above them on the ladder, the reserves were no match with the Donald side but in the Seniors the boys played their best 4 quarters for the season to win well.
It was a good day for the Bish boys, the 4 brothers getting the top award in each of the 4 games, Jed in the under 13s, Brock in the Under 16s, Jordy in the Reserves and Boe kicking 6 goals in the Seniors.
The Goods and Services Auction was held in the Club Rooms after the game and raised some well needed funds for the Club


vs WEDDERBURN JUNE 20TH

Over the past few weeks the Demons have been playing better football and wins for both the Seniors and Reserves on Saturday

Coach Marty leads his team from the ground after a good win, Marty himself lead from the front with 8 goals straight.

The reserves also leave the ground after a good win.The Under 16s also had a win and will play in the finals if they can field 18 players.

VS BOORT JUNE 6TH

The Demons played Boort at Boort on a very wet day, there were not many highlights for the Demons as we lost all football games.
The Under 13s get instructions from Coach Jake Bish, Its a little wet for the Coaching staff, trainers and supporters.

Coach Marty does a bit of high flying to take a good mark.

VS StARNAUD & QUIZ NIGHT 30th May 2009

The Demons had a very good day on Saturday against St Arnaud, The Junior games were very close with both the under 16s and 13s just going down, once again a big thanks to the StArnaud junior club for providing players to make up our sides, The Reserves and Seniors both had their first wins for the season.

The Demons sing the song for the first time in 2009 and below Coach Marty congratulates the boys on a good game.


The Winning team, and below, with two teams on the same points at the end of the quiz, Hawks and Dane play of for a winner.




The Wheet-Bix challenge,

IS THERE A SOLUTION ?

With the help of other Clubs and StArnaud players helping out our Under 16s our juniors are playing a game each Saturday, the Under 16s had only 11 players on Saturday including 2 from Nullawil and a couple from Charlton (and won by 18 goals),.so we will get through this season, Next year out of the 20 players we played with on Saturday we lose 7 out of the Under 16s and at this stage have no players coming up to the under 13s, So the Under 16s will have 5 players and the Under 13s will have 9.
We have to face the fact that we might not be able to field junior sides next year and if you don't have junior sides do you have a Club ??

Our Under 16s on Saturday, 11 players including Two from Nullawil and Two from Charlton.
On a Saturday sometimes you find some new talent, This could be the find of the year, Tom Trewins Mom Kegs shows her skills as a  goal umpire, with some expert advice being given from the side.

PLAYING FOR THE WRONG DEMONS

Brayden Ison ( Nephew of Fred)  playing for the Horsham Demons kicks 8 goals in his first senior game there, last year playing for the Wycheproof Narraport Demons after a game in the under 16s played in the seniors and kicked 6 goals against St Arnaud.

LOOKING AFTER RICHO

A Football Manager's tasks are many, especially on a home match where a lot of details have to be placed on the League web site, Team lists etc and with our under 16s having players from StArnaud and Nullawil on Sunday, Bill was kept busy,So when son Tom left "Richo" in Bill's care while he did the running for the under 16's it was just another task.
"Richo" here seems to be wondering what the song Bill was singing quietly as he went about his work, he had never heard it before " Oh We're from Tigerland"

As our Under 16's have only about 10 players more are needed to play a game so StArnaud are providing extra players every game, On Sunday they had 6 players in our Under 16's side,
Along with Tom Fawcett and  Brent Sheahan, the boys ended up with 17 and had a good win, One player from StArnaud was Mathew Grigg , his Grandfather was a regular sight in Wycheproof in the 70's, Joe Grigg worked for Gilbarco and serviced all the fuel pumps around town. (Mathew is in the middle of the group with light blue shorts)

A LITTLE BIT OF CRICKET

The A Grade were a little short on Saturday so our Football Manager Bill Keane helped out, Walking out to bat many memories would have gone through his mind, many fine innings played in the past but now it was time to bring those skills to the test again.

A fine shot to the leg side! The Keane family will have a fine meal this week, Golden Duck.

WELCOME TO THE 2009 SEASON

Welcome all to a new football season, training started before Christmas under new coach Marty Shadbolt and we hope to have a few more numbers for 2009.
Our Under 16s will have a problem with numbers as there is only about 8 of them, so if anyone knows of a under 16 boy that would like a game of football, let us know.
The old front page is still here under SEASON 2008 on the left menu, also a few photos have been uploaded to Flickr taken by Jan Hickmont in the 1980's of Premiership Celebrations.
Also it looks like the VCFL site is no more, so all the club history that was placed there is gone so I will place it on this site in time.
A list of North Central Football League Executives has been added on the menu on the left along with our club
A BIG THANKS TO WARREN- Warren Partington has been a trainer for the club for the last 10 years but now has moved to Yarrawonga  with his family in his work, he will be a big loss to the club being a well trained medical officer, President Merv, Committee, Players & supporters wish Warren Chris and family all the best in their new surrounds
