The Byron Bay Magpies have begun training for the 2009 season as Shultz Oval at Bangalow comes alive with exuberant shouts and flurries of colourful activity.
Byron Magpies president John Thompson said he was impressed with this year’s turnout and the level of playing already being shown.
“Between our veteran players and some of the new talent, we’re looking very good. I’m expecting an exciting year,” he said.
John said the big news this year was the revitalisation of the under-16s side.
“It was touch and go as far as getting the numbers, but a combined Bryon/Brunswick side has been established, so we’ll be sharing training venues and plan to have a very competitive side this season,” he said.
Players wishing to join may still show up on training afternoons, or ring John and Vanessa on 6687 2787 or 0408 791 286.
Home and away games will be played on Sundays.
With a very strong coaching staff – including former Crows stand-out ruckman Sean Rehn – and dedicated, fun-loving players, 2009 promises to be a very lively and enjoyable footy season.
