Tolland Wolves New Wolfpack

It is with great pleasure that we would like to announce the senior coaches for 2020 season. We have been fortunate enough to be able to secure the following coaches for our senior squads:

Men’s Head Coach – Joel Irlam

Women’s Leonard Team Coach – Flo Wilson

Men’s Assistant Coach – Aaron Harley

Women’s Madden Coach – David Antill

We are looking forward to our pre-season which will be starting late January with all of our coaches already hard at work behind the scenes.

On Monday 25th November, our AGM was held at the Rules Club (one of our great sponsors). The AGM saw some new and significant changes to the executive committee, with long standing President Maurie Hogan stepping down from his position after 7 years. We thank Maurie for his long and tireless contribution to the success of the club for many years.

It is with great pleasure we announce our new Executive Committee as follows:

President – Luke Wilson

Senior Vice-President – Bernadette Blake

Junior Vice-President – Amanda Hooper

Treasurer – Hayden Oakman

Registrar – Donna O’Grady

Secretary – David Antill

We now have a great mix of new faces which in turn brings a lot of new ideas and enthusiasm, whilst maintaining the many years of experience within the club with Donna and Dave staying on in the Executive Committee and Maurie taking up the Property Officers role.

The 2020 season will certainly become the year of the Wolves both on and off the field.

Look out Wagga the Wolves are hungry and will be relentless!

A huge thanks to Daniel Lawrence who has sadly informed us that he wishes to have a break from coaching next year.

MINI –ROOS: All these competitions have now finished and this weekend is the last of the junior and senior competition home and away games. Good luck to all our teams who will qualify for the finals.

INTERSPORT “34 BAYLIS ST”

No, t’s not a new sponsor but the Sportsmans Warehouse has changed their business name to INTERSPORT. Their business is still donating one $10 voucher for each competition round for each of our mini – roos and junior teams, this is over $6000 worth of sponsorship. All senior teams (six) also receive a thirty dollar voucher another $3000 worth of sponsorship. More importantly this all goes to our players not our club, Mini – roos and junior coaches ensure these awards are shared around so every registered player will get at least one and some of the mini – roos players two or three because these teams are smaller. All senior awards are voted for by the players after each match. Remember if you buy something from INTERSPORT tell them you are from Tolland Football Club and a percentage of your purchase goes back to the club.

When you are considering buying sporting equipment/clothing please have a look at INTERSPORT first and where ever possible support our major sponsor.

Best of luck to all our teams this week. Maurie

“HUGE THANKS!”

SWAP MEET THANKS:

The swap meet was a very successful fund raiser for the club and this would not have been possible without the many volunteers who helped prepare food, cook and serve to hundreds of people who attended the swap meet last Sunday.

Without doubt this was the best ever response we have had for helpers at any fund raiser! The most pleasing aspect was the large number of senior players who gave up their time to help the club raise much needed funds. A big thanks to all those who helped out.
