To start the ball rolling..
Should be a good year for UWS / Hawkesbury Ag College in Div 3 as they build towards their 125th Anniversary in 2016. Big years like that always brings old & new players out of the woodwork.
Go the blood & mustard - Wazzie - Wazzie - Yah!
Our most obvious
challenge was the
downturn in our team and
player numbers, with an
unfortunate number of
forfeits and withdrawals occurring - almost exclusively
in our top division. Some of this was foreseen, but the
extent of the problem – particularly in Division One - was
not. Whilst the Board wishes to keep Division One as a
ten-club competition, we recognise that the integrity of
the competitions require all clubs to meet their playing
requirements. We must say clearly that clubs that cannot
meet those requirements will be replaced.
"There’s no investment in the game anywhere. They just keep throwing money at the top of the tree. It would be nice to see some direction and investment in the game in other than those at the top of the tree, but it doesn’t seem to happen.”
“The clubs in Sydney effectively have to put those teams together and fund it and carry the risk,” Papworth said. “At Eastwood we didn’t get involved formally (with the Rams). We pulled out for those very reasons. We didn’t see it as our role."
grading is next year isnt it?
Incorrect, Division 2 will be 8 teams. St Ives not definite to be in. Brothers up to Division 1 I believe. Oatley out????Sorry, been away but can someone enlighten me.
What is going on?
- Div 2 is 9 teams, keeping St Ives.
- Beecroft is nowhere to be found at all
- Seven clubs in Div 3
