Sunday Practise Matches at Bomberland

04 March 2016

Bernies v Fitzroy this Sunday at Bombers HQ Tullamarine

First Practise Match of a big year is this Sunday march 6th, vs Fitzroy FC at EssendonFC HQ, 275 Melrose Drive Tullamarine.

Special thanks to EsssendonFC and their Community Programs Manager (and bernies player) Bernard Shepheard for their assistance in allowing our club to use the no2 Oval at their elite training facility.

This Oval is Etihad Oval in size with no cricket pitches, so an important first chance for the players to have a full field hitout this year.This will allow New Senior coach Mark Riley to implement his game plans and evaluate the playing list under match pressure.

Fitzroy are an up and coming B Division team, whose fast ball movement gave our club an excellent game in the same fixture last preseason, and they are coached by former St Bernards Premiership Captain and former caretaker coach Nick Mitchell.

Auskick and Juniors Players are most welcome to come along and watch, and have a kick on this excellent ground at the breaks in play.

Reserves Game is 1.45pm, followed by Seniors at 3.45pm

So we look forward to the players having a fast moving high standard VAFA hitout, and of course spectators are most welcome to attend, just byo fold up chairs, and slip/slop/slap for it will be a glorious sunny day.
