Round 15 Match Report

Seniors 21.23.149 defeated North Brunswick 6.4.40

A hamstring injury to Haydn Judge in the warm up meant a late call up for James “Christmas” Reid and he was grabbed out of the 2’s song to take up his place in the senior line up.

A tight start in the first with both sides struggling with clean ball movement and both defences holding up particularly well. Lachy Barnes was his usual sensational best down back and was ably assisted by Russell …

Vale Tyson Noyes

It is with great sadness that we have to let people know that our wonderful young team mate, Tyson Noyes, has passed away as a result of a tragic accident.

Tyson was a skilled, tough, competitive player who could influence a game with his courage.

We will always be grateful for the impact he had on our club in a short space of time.

Rest In Peace Tyson…. forever young

Vale Tony Megens

Tony was one of the largely unseen members of our community. 

Went to Aquinas but never played for the Old Collegians, but you could always find him on a Saturday afternoon in winter standing on the hill overlooking the bottom oval cheering on his favourite local side.  Generally with his two boys running around him.

Our thoughts are with Moira, Ben and Josh at this sad time.

RIP Tony…

Vale John Rogers

John Rogers died 25.6.19 aged 86

John was the Father of premiership captain, 200 game player and life member Craig and grandfather of the Rogers boys who run water and the boundary on match day.

Few people in our club’s history have left such an indelible mark as John. He was the illustrator of those wonderful caricatures that adorn the walls of our club room. Other than a premiership medallion, a John Rogers original was the most coveted award on …

Round 8 Match Report

Seniors

Aquinas 13.7.85 defeated Parkside 6.9.45

After suffering their first loss of the season against Manningham last round, the Bloods were looking to bounce back and return to the winners list. Aquinas were up against Parkside away who were sitting 6th on the ladder. Despite their low position in standings, the Devils always provide a competitive matchup.

The game was delayed due to an unfortunate injury in the reserves game that required an ambulance to attend the ground, thus holding …

Round 7 Match Report

Womens

Aquinas 1.2.8 defeated by Williamstown 6.7.43

After copping a hiding the week before at Therry Penola the girls from Great Ryrie Street had spent the week licking their wounds and preparing for a big game against Willamstown CYMS. The CYs have had an interesting start to the 2019 campaign having their opening 3 matches in Division 1 before coming down a grade for Round 4 and beyond and taking all before them.

A terrific start from the Aquinas girls …

Vale John McCafferty

John like many fathers loved to go and watch his son Pat play football for Aquinas. He saw most of Pat’s 180 games, his premierships and was very proud when Pat was made a Life member.

Unlike many parents who watch their sons and daughters play, John always pitched in and did a job, goal umpire, timekeeper or his specialty interchange steward. He always was quick with encouragement and some homespun Irish advice.

It is with much sadness that all …

The seniors took on old rivals Richmond Central at home in hope of keeping their unbeaten record alive. Despite sitting on the bottom of the ladder, Richmond have been playing competitive football, proving how tight Division 3 is this year.

The Snakes justified this statement as both teams went goal for goal in the first term, with the scores locked at …
