Season Opener

March 31, 2017



Dear Dragon Supporters,


Finally it has arrived. Finally you can stop talking about politics, weather and other conversation fillers. Finally footy season is upon us where friendships are made and strengthened, stories are told and embellished and good times roll.


This week is Round One of Season 2017. If the smell of linament and tiger balm gets you excited then buy some and head on down to Price Memorial Oval, on the corner of Angas Road & Hawthorn Road Hawthorn for our first clash of Division 3 football against the Mitcham Hawks. As with our usual start times, the Reserves kick off at 12:15pm with the A grade to follow at 2:15pm.


The excitement of Round One was evident at training this week as our boys were salivating with the opportunity to spend some time back at the Den and boy did we dig it up!


Coaches Luke Donaldson and Ryan Shipway had the unenviable task of picking two sides on Thursday night where some worthy Dragons missed out but with known player movements in the coming week or two, everyone will get their opportunity to earn and retain their spot in the sides. Pressure on a C grade is becoming evident and certainly represents some serious consideration for 2018 as we aim to climb through the Divisions with depth.


If we needed any more motivation to kick off with a win, we are delighted to be celebrating Nick Pynor’s 100th game this weekend. Nick has been a servant of the club for a decade now and represents the epitome of what is means to be a Dragon. Nick has and continues to serve as an on-field leader, he has and continues to hold office on the Committee and is a tireless servant in all facets of the club. We are inspired by Nick’s commitment to the cause and hope to honour him with a win in our first match of Division 3.


After the game concludes, we will head back to Glandore to share a meal and a drink and conduct a cheeky player auction for all supporters who like a flutter. See details below.


Get into your club colours (always merchandise available to purchase if you need to stock up) and get down to Mitcham’s Oval for our first hit out this Saturday.


We hope to see you there on Saturday and we really look forward to seeing mums, dads, grandparents, siblings, boyfriends, girlfriends, kids and all supporters following us this season. Help us become the country club in the city and make it your own.
