An exciting season begins for the Panthers

An exciting season begins for the Panthers

Two sleeps away and all roads lead to Bulleen

I’m pleased to report we have had an amazing pre-season. Despite the agony of 2016 we have fantastic player retention and excellent recruitment. Beyond that, we also have both returning and new sponsors. There has been plenty of 2016 year 12 leavers down at the club so the Unders are looking good. Coaches are refreshed, so too players and committee.

And who would have ever imagined a WOMEN'S team playing for the OC? Well look below because it will be history in the making on Saturday at 2.00pm as our mighty Ladies take on Ivanhoe out on Spicer Oval. The numbers on the track have been amazing with upwards of 80 seniors on top of the Unders and Women.

Sadly we have lost two people close to the club over summer. Much loved Jeff Teele passed away, Jeff was a member of our 1954 first-ever team. Awarded life membership, Jeff would be a regular at our home lunches up in Cookie's Kitchen. Jeff is in the photo below on the left along with fellow team mates Trevor Cleary and David Jones. Close friend and team mate Alan Niper Parsons is not in this photo but is also a regular attendee.

We will also be wearing a black arm band on Saturday in support of our senior runner, Brad Cronin, sadly Brad's mum, Faye passed away over summer as well.
