News From The Shed: Update from the President

Happy New year to all the Neddies Family, Friends and Supporters.  Welcome to 2023 and I hope everyone has had a wonderful start to the year.
It will be no surprise to you all that planning for the 2023 season is already well underway.  With the first round kicking off against Cottesloe at Harvey Field on 18th March, we have less than 9 weeks to dust off our Neddies gear, stow the surfboard away and get back on the sideline to cheer on the boys.
We are still finalising the coaching line-up but the good news is Sam Rarasea will be our Head Coach & DOR this year, and in other good news I can confirm that Dylan Loversidge will be the Club Captain for 2023.  The club has recruited well in the off season so expect to see some new talent out on the field in the Neddies blue this season.  And I can also confirm we’ll have a Women’s team playing at Neddies this season.  I’m quite excited we’ll have the women once again at the club so I hope everyone will make a big effort to welcome the ladies to our club and support them over the season.
In the management and operation of the club just about everyone from last year has put their hand up to go around again, so this is great news.  In addition we have some well known faces wanting to get more involved in the running of the club so we are going from strength to strength both on and off the field.
Some dates to put into your diaries are as follows:

Pre-season training startsTues31-Jan
Bar OpeningThurs23-Feb
Working BeeSun05-Mar
1st Steak NightThurs09-Mar
Season Start – away v CottSat18-Mar
1st Home Game v WestsSat25-Mar

The Club had a magnificent year in 2022 with all 5 teams in finals and 3 going on to win their grand finals, however, I have a very good feeling that we’re going to do better this year.  Fielding 6 senior teams alone is an achievement, but with the strength of the playing group we will have do not be surprised to see all teams in finals again.  2023 I feel will be one for the record books, so I make sure you get down to the club as often as possible to be part of what will be a spectacular season of rugby.
Lets all pitch in together to make 2023 a spectacular year.  See you on the sidelines.  Be Loud.  Be Proud. GO NEDDIES!
