Another football season has come to an end and tonight we will see the grand final of the Stawell 13 and Under Football Association between the Hawks and Tigers.
The kids love playing under lights and hopefully the weather will be kind.
A big thank you to our major sponsor Stawell Toyota for their continued support.
It is greatly appreciated and provides an opportunity for all our young footballers to enjoy our competition at an affordable cost.
We would also like to thank Stawell Subway, McDonalds and Arcadeon for sponsoring the encouragement awards each week and our team sponsors: Halls Gap Bakery, Bibby's Carpentry, Warren Earthworks and Farrers Tyrepower.
The Association would also like to thank the Stawell Warriors Football Club for their assistance each Friday night. Also the Swifts football Club for allowing us to use their facilities on Wednesday nights.
I would like to personally thank our committee of Kristen Ankerson, Greg Carter, Amber Holloway, Megan Raeburn and Elishia Murphy for the work they put in behind the scenes.
Thanks also to all the paparazzi for taking photos throughout the season.
Congratulations to our coaches and assistant coaches for their dedicated effort in developing our young footballers and to our players on how they have conducted themselves all year.
We would also like to thank Charlie Baird, Rod Summers, James Gooden and Will Carter for umpiring throughout the season, also a big thank you to Gaynor Radovic for the players medical requirements.
To all the parents that assist during the season performing duties each week thank you all.
In particular, those parents that take on extra duties when others choose not to do their duty.
The competition could not run this smoothly without you.
Good luck to our retiring players, we wish them well whatever they choose to do with their football.
Finally, a big thank you to all of the children who have shown great sportsmanship throughout the season.
