2011/12 Season Summary

Another season completed with The Dragons having 4 Junior and 3 Senor Teams making the finals with the B5’s, 16A’s and 14E’s winning there respective grades.

Our Junior numbers were steady which was a great result for the club considering there was a drop of 200 players across the association. The challenge for the Committee next season is to increase our player base in the U8 & U10’s to ensure the club remains strong in the future.

Whilst our Senior numbers were slightly down we were able to field 11 teams – The most by any club in the Association.

The success of our Club is due to the dedication and commitment of our Committee, Coaches, Managers, Scorers and Helpers in making sure that each team gets on the field every weekend – A big Thank You to everyone.

The contribution of the following sponsors allows the club to keep our fess to a minimum,

  • Engadine RSL
  • A1 Metaltech
  • Marine Product Marketing
  • Southern Cross Framing & Mirrors
  • GNP Marine Trimming
  • Sportsworld Caringbah

It was also pleasing to see 4 former junior players and current Mens players coach this season – Liam Herne & Jordan Dow coaching the 10A’s and Paul Bremner & James Stone coaching the 14E’s.

Off the field, we were able to upgrade the nets at Engadine West Public School with the help of the Sutherland Shire Junior Cricket Association providing $5000 in funding. We also held our first “Bunnings” BBQ which was a great success with every team assisting on the day.

I would like to thank everyone that has helped make this a successful season.

Neil Croker.
