It’s all about 50 years!
This Saturday 26th June from midday, the Noosa Tigers AFC will be celebrating 50 years of existence, which in a non-AFL state has to be considered a wonderful achievement. Club co-founder Len Daddow will welcome guests in the clubhouse just after midday, followed by some words of wisdom and humour from Geelong great Billy Brownless.
Of course, we do have plenty of footy to be played as the Rococo Noosa Tigers play Gold Coast heavyweights Labrador who are coached by Sydney Swans premiership hero Nick Malceski. Bova’s boys went down by 6 goals last Saturday to Sherwood in a much-improved effort. Seb Rogers continued his stellar form of the past 5 or 6 weeks to be again adjudged Noosa’s best player. Vice-captain Isaac McCrimmon was terrific, whilst key forward Aaron Wilson and skipper Aaron Laskey were among the best also.
Our Tiger Women have gone to the top of the AFL Division 2 north ladder with a terrific 10 goal victory over Sandgate at Rococo Oval last Saturday. Cass Young was the instigator of the win and was clearly the best player on the ground. Maddy Trompf controlled the defensive half superbly for 4 quarters whilst Shauna Kelly always looked dangerous up forward. The women play North Shore at 10 am at Mudjimba this Saturday so plenty of time to get back for our 50th year celebrations.
