President’s Message: Round 16

Hi All Sharks

Well done to our Colts Reds for a gutsy win over St Mary’s on Sunday. That allows the Sharks to showcase three Grand Finals this Sunday. 

Sunday 28th August – Grand Final Day

U11’s Black          – Heath lee                               Greythorn Park Balwyn  10.15am

Come on all Sharks, please let’s get out and about and support our boy’s for the last game of the year. The YJFL have spaced our games so we can get to all three of them. RED, BLACK and WHITE is needed on mass this Sunday. I look forward to seeing as many of the Sharks family present as possible.
