The end of season 2015 is fast approaching, and whilst overall another tough year for our Senior Grades, our 18's are giving us an insight in the future. Season 2015 has again been one of great promise , but impacted with player & coaching movement, as well as injury. But through it all this group of young men continue to improve , turn up and play every week for each other.

Our 18's currently sit 3rd on the ladder, despite an horrific year , badly impacted by player injury and unavailability.....some game turning out with 11 & 12 players, and still managing to find a way to WIN !! With 3 games left , the boys should be contesting the semi finals , so make sure you all turn out to support !!!

Planning is also well underway for season 2016 , continuing to rebuild the club around our Junior players.
On behalf of the committee I would like to announce the appointment of Liam Cullen , as Brothers Seniors "A" Grade coach for season 2016.

Liam played his Junior football with Brothers , before transferring over into our Senior ranks, where he had a very distinguished playing career, at the club. During this time , he also coached U14 & U16 teams at our Juniors as well as some Grade football at a Senior Level. Liam has been working closely with our current "A" Grade captain/ coach Nick Paterson , as Assistant Coach , and will take over the reigns at season end. Season 2015 has proven to be a great opportunity for Liam to work closely with Nick , and gain strong insights from Nick's experience and structure, which will assist Liam in succeeding into the role. Nick is keen to remain involved with Brothers, but work will dictate future outcomes.

The focus of the committee remain the succession and development of players from our Junior club , and their successful transition over to the Seniors. Liam is a perfect example of this culture and totally supports the club's ethos & strategy , going forward. Reserve Grade coach Greg Betros has been a tower of support for the club, putting on the Jersey and going into battle, when needed. Gary Palmer, our 18's Coach , is the final and most important piece in the coaching structure at Brothers. He has maintained a strong training ethos & regimne with his Team which has allowed them to transition as smooth a possible into their Senior debuts.... 2016 coaching positions will be finalised , and some player signings will be announced before season's end....

So far this year several of our U18's have made their senior debut's with Reserve and A Grade , and this opportunity will continue into next season. Brothers is all about opportunity and culture.

Our U18 side has been in the Top 4 of the competition all season and our U16 side is leading the Juniors competition........which goes well for our future seasons! The Juniors are putting in place strong coaching structures, with Stumpy McEwan at the helm. This is a solid commitment and foundation from our Juniors, to support the Seniors into the future. In essence we are One CLUB , One's great to be a Leprechaun !!
