Official Club Notes
Port to Tackle East Coast Bombers
The ‘Cygnet Community Bank Football Football Club’ is well rested after the recent bye for the Southern Football Club’s Representative Match played last Saturday. The break was a good chance for players to rest some niggling injuries and to prepare for a tough match against the bombers who have shown they are serious finals contenders this season, and will be extremely hard to beat on their home turf. We look forward to the long road trip to Triabunna, and the challenge both games will bring for our players.
We take this opportunity to congratulate the SFL representative side for their thrilling win and especially to Sammy Dean who did both himself and the Club proud by being one of the side’s better players on the day. We also wish Ben Halton the very best of luck who has been selected in the Under 23 squad for the upcoming SFL representative match.
We pass our best wishes to Cam Wilcox and Jenna Dance who are to be married this week. We wish you both a life-time of happiness.
We also pass our belated congratulations to Mitch and Laura Direen on the recent arrival of their new baby boy Cooper James Direen. See you all on Saturday at Triabunna.
We pass our condolences to the Synnott families on the recent passing of Mervyn. Mervyn was an extremely talented player and played with brothers Jack and Leon (deceased) who were a formidable force on the ground. A highlight for Merv was when he formed part of the undefeated senior team during the 1947 and 1948 years. He also was very proud the day he played with all his other 3 brothers in a senior match.
We also pay our deepest respect to the Arnol families and Dave on the passing of Gwen. Dave is a regular volunteer around the Club. May they both rest in peace.

Self Belief is the Next Step
After 6 rounds we sit at 3 wins and 3 loses. But It could quite easily be 5 and 1.
Last Saturday was an example of a game that was very winable, however in the end I think we talked ourselves into losing.
After an even first quarter we lost our way in the second quarter and went into the long break 35 points down. The message at half time was very simple; claw back a few goals and regroup at 3/4 time ready for a last quarter onslaught.
What happened next was an example of a team that had lost their confidence in their own ability to win. We were flat and quiet, which resulted in a 52 point deficit at 3/4 time.
A few home truths and choice words from the coaches at the last break seemed to wake us from our slumber, and what followed was almost the comeback of the century.
Cygnet dominated and Claremont panicked. Poor kicking for goal was probably the only reason we didn't win.
Although disappointing I am hoping we learnt a valuable lesson on Saturday, and that lesson is that you should never give in and should always believe in yourself.
I think that if we follow this belief we will have a successful season. It's a close competition and we are definitely contenders.
