The Shinglebacks will be back on the Jubilee Oval to defend the title against the visiting Croweaters on Saturday, July 20.  

The game will commence straight after the conclusion of the League between West and Central game, around 5pm but Broken Hill are in need of some new lizards. 

The inaugural 2008 draftee lizards are now old and wrinkly, none more so than Jimmy “Judd” Hinton, and need to be pensioned off. Up and coming rookies like Phil Neal, Brett Johnston, Ben Victory, Jarrod Burke, Craig Burke and Corey Sultana are the future but more numbers are needed.  

The travelling Adelaide side are boasting 28 players so we need our local footy legends to dust off the boots and fly the flag. 

If you’re keen to play you’re in according to Shinglebacks President Mick Vlatko. 

“We would love our members to play but most simply are too old now so we don’t have enough of them to form a team,” Vlatko said.

“So the call is out to all four Clubs to help find players.” 

The Masters football motto of “footy for fun” will ensure everyone has a good run whilst our local umpires will protect all lizards.  

If you intend playing please comment on the ‘event’ on the Shinglebacks Facebook page or get in contact with either Vlatko on 0409 462 874 or Garry Sandy on 0427 976 329. 

Umpires are also required so if you want to be involved as an umpire, trainer or helper please make the call. 

“It’s wonderful that the Croweaters make this almost annual trip so we must get a good turnout both for the game and the after match at the Mulga,” Vlatko said.
