Whats Happening

Round 5 review and Round 6 preview

Congratulations to Shaun Bennett on his 50th game last week, bagging 5 and one of the best players, hope his form continues.

Shaun Bennett - 50 game player with Claremont

After some very hectic home games our committee and volunteers can enjoy the break and watch the footy this week, thanks to you all for your incredible work.

This week the team was looking to keep their good form going and stretch their winning streak to three, but knew we had a tough assignment against last year’s premiers Sorell. The team was up and about early and got off to a very good start through controlling possession and making good decisions with the ball to lead at the first change by 31 points. The second term was extremely even as neither team was able to control the quarter and the margin  remained at 31 points at the main break. The third term saw the team go back into some bad habits as Sorell lifted and took control of the quarter to reduce the margin to just 3 points at the last change. The last term was really close and after losing the lead for a short time the team lifted and showed a lot of character to fight back and secure a 2 goal win. It was a real team effort but stand outs were Dean Jetson, Jacob Young and Josh Gadd




A hard week to comment on in the ressies we got away with the win but hard to know if we deserved it or not. The first & fourth quarters were almost faultless whereas the second and third showed there was plenty of room for the improvement I know the boys have in them. A come from behind victory can never be a bad thing though.



Three wins again last week, Shaun’s team had a fantastic win by beating the reigning premiers. Webby’s team came from behind to win by a last minute goal by Luke Brown, well done to both teams and coaches.

The senior team had to work hard to overcome a persistent young Sorell team who look to have a bright future under Simon Harris.

This week against Cygnet will be another challenge and should be a high quality game between two similar sides at Cygnet.



Round 3 review and Round 4 preview


The team started full of run and intensity and we were able to capitalise on our chances up forward to take a nine point lead into the first break. The second quarter saw us gain some good momentum through our transition play and clearance work to hold a 22 point lead at the main change. We gained a lot of opportunities through our work rate and capitalised fairly well up forward to have a 38 point lead at the final break. The last was fairly even before conceding the last couple of goals, the end result being a 4 goal win, our first of the season as the team continues to develop. We were best served by Cody Johnson 5 goals and Dean Jetson and Daniel Strong having a good game.



The twos arrived at Pontville full of confidence and ready to grab that elusive first win. A valuable lesson was learnt in the first five minutes of the game, you can never be over confident against any side regardless of their reputation or position on the ladder. Brighton got the hop on us and scored the first three goals of the match. There was no need for panic, as the coach I knew I had a group out there and that given time they would prove why I have so much faith in them and they did coming in back at level pegging by quarter time. The boys performed well in patches over the next three quarters and ended up with a good first win, but it is vitally important that it is realised how damaging they can if they’re switched on for four quarters.


A terrific result against Brighton for our club with all three teams recording wins for the first time in 2013.Well done Webby, Shaun and your respective teams on a great result. We the senior team were made to work hard against a young and determined Brighton and we will need to improve this week at home to Huonville. I would like to thank our loyal supporters and again ask you all to get along and assist our three teams to be the best we can be in 2013.


Reminder about your membership is due or if you would like to become a member forms on notice board.

Huge thanks to our sponsors this season from the big to the small without you we wouldn’t be able to subsidise our players costs.
