Senior Lions ends season on a high

By Kirra Livingstone

THE Glasshouse Lions presentation night took place August 27 to celebrate the efforts of the resurrected seniors’ team which hadn’t played for 10 years.

It was a torrid re-entry into the AFL competition, but the club were optimistic about their future.

Club members spoke passionately at the end of season awards night about never letting the seniors team crumble like it did many years ago, and what a great club and team it is to play for.

They also said the team showed continuous improvement including winning their second last game of the season.

The seniors team also made special mention of president Craig Bales and seniors coach Dean Crooks, with players presenting a signed jersey to Dean in appreciation of his hard work.

John Holcombe and Kyle Bullard tied as the Player’s Player with Best and Fairest and runners up, Matthew Pola and Regan Sloan respectively.

The best back of the team went to Zac Atkin, the most consistent player of the team went to Jack Doyle, and their leading goalkicker was Taine Maloney.

Dean Crooks won best clubman, with players saying they couldn’t have got the team back up and running without his commitment.

Although they didn’t win many games in their first year back, Kyle Bullard said the team was determined to improve and were ready to play next season with planning underway to secure the team’s long-term future.
