New life members
At the AGM two nominations for life membership were received and unanimously approved: David Spain and Ben McCormick. Congratulations to both David (aka Beagle) and Ben (aka Dover) for a great reward for their many years of volunteering, especially behind the old Green Shed bar.
Pageant and Callington Show
The Raiders recently held fundraising stands at both the Callington Show and the Stirling pageant (See photos). A big thanks to Cass, Belly, John, JZ and Cheryl for the Cally Show, and to Fraz and Tania, Belly, John and the Borneman family for helping at the Pageant.
Tom Sparrow drafted to AFL
As you would have heard Tom Sparrow was drafted to Melbourne at pick 27 last Friday. Tom started his junior football at the Raiders where he excelled for several years before joining South Adelaide and his school PAC.
Tom is the first Raiders player ever to be drafted into the AFL. The club is so proud to have played a part in his journey. On a personal note I am so proud to have played footy with his dad Michael (300 game life member) and to have coached Tom as a kid at Bridgewater. Tom always hunted the ball from an early age and showed the desire needed to make it. Congratulations to Tom and his family. Well deserved.
It’s hard to believe but preseason training for the senior men starts tonight! It has been a busy period leading up to now for our coaches Craig Bahnisch and Sam Ryan, and our recruiting team. It’s looking like we will have a really strong squad for 2019.
