President’s Letter: Round 10 2021
July 14, 2021 · Ritchie Appleby · President’s Letter
Hi all Sharks!
I trust all Players, Mums and Dads enjoyed their break over the school holidays. I know the committee welcomed the chance to charge their batteries and put their feet up for a few days. Well, hasn’t time flown, we are into our last month of home and away games before the finals commence on the 22nd of August. So much to do, so little time!
From our committee’s point of view, we know the season is fast coming to an end. During the next few weeks, we have our Youth Girls/Colts, Life Members Dinner, Team Managers wrap up, Coaches meeting, YJFL Directors/President’s meeting and Committee meetings and then finals – Phew!
The last round on 15th August, we look forward to seeing you at our burger night afterwards at Domeney Reserve from 5pm onwards.
During the last month it has been great to see the PONRPJFC represented by Players in the YJFL selected teams taking on other leagues. Well done to our Rep Players who participated in and enjoyed stepping up to a new level.
Sunday was the perfect winter footy day. The air had a chill, but the grounds were dry, and a lovely amount of sun was shining. Yes, it was a weak winter sun, however the input by out Sharks was strong. Players turned up with renewed vigour not to mention the well soaked bright white shorts. Thanks mums, well done. Whilst the scores can be unfair on teams during the year, it’s great to see the ticker shown from the players. Use the rest of the year as a learning curve if the results aren’t going your way and let’s show a united front in 2022. Focus on your coaches’ instructions, pick up new skills and enjoy being with your teammates. Thank you all parents for the support roles you’re involved in, particularly Team Managers – you are magnificent.
Once again, we are honoured to have an extensive list of our players selected to represent the Sharks across a range of high-level competitions. It is an outstanding recognition of a player’s skill, their embodiment of our club’s culture and their potential in the wider football community. Well done to all players who have been selected and we look forward to hearing about your success in these exciting new opportunities.

Tuesday 3rd August – 6.30pm at Club Kilsyth (Cnr Canterbury and Colchester Roads)
Normally, the transition dinner is for players in Colts and Youth Girls who are playing their final year in Juniors. However, due to COVID and the league introducing an U18 Youth Boys division this year, the format will change for Season 2021 and all our Colts and Youth Girls are invited to attend. The Sharks look forward to welcoming our Life Members along for the evening as well.
The Club will pay for the Players, Life Members and Guests meals and drinks on the night. Parents are encouraged to attend and will need to pay $30 for a 2-3 course meal. Drinks at bar prices. Our special guest speaker for the evening will challenge, interact and create perceptive insights for today and our future.
