Travelling Lizards look to boost ranks
Wednesday, 15th May, 2013
The Shinglebacks will travel to Mintaro this weekend for two games of football.
New coach Craig Thomas has banned the gourmet wine tours of the past two years (that resulted in losses) and instructed his troops to meet at the big M on Sunday at 7am for the day trip.
The Shinglebacks will tackle South (from Noarlunga) at 12.30pm in a 4 x 15 minute game and then back up for the game against the Mid North hosts at 2pm.
This new concept of a round robin was our idea to encourage more footy for the starving Lizards who were denied a game in late March when Riverland failed to show up.
Thomas has been building his team passionately (on the phone) and has recruited some new fresher legs as some of our inaugural 2008 Shinglebacks are not aging as well the Clare Shiraz.
While the wine gets better these lizards are getting slower and more fragile so the SOS is out for some new blood. We could do with another car load, said Thomas, just to help with rotations. Any players over 34 keen to get involved should c all 0429 800409.
The team (as of Tuesday) from the forward line is (F) Ryan Attard, Hamish Wood, Drew Mashford, (HF) Craig Thomas, Jarrod Burke, Brad Pressler, (W) Jim Hinton, Alan Mackiewicz, Hayden Langdon, (HB) Jay Robins, Chris Langdon, Brett Morris (FB) Brendan Vaughan, Dave Kuerschner, Daryl Butcher (R) Kent Wayman, Garry Sandy, Anthony Farquhar.
(Int) P Nash, (A. Coach) Clayton Trengove (Manager) Rod Garner.
