We did it!! Saints defeat Magpies in 2012 AAFL Grand Final. A perfect 11-0 season, and the first flag in seven years! More photos, videos and stories to follow soon...
Tomorrow is the Grand Final - the Saints vs the Magpies at 2pm at Onepoto, this is the big one folks - we'd love to see all our fans and supporters down at the ground tomorrow!
Congratulations to Coach Callum McLean who won the AAFL's Coach of the Year award, and Michael Boyce who won the Runner Up Best & Fairest. Congratulations to all the other other club members who got nominations and votes.
A good win against the Tigers this weekend in windy conditions. Don't forget AFL9's is on tonight at Papatoetoe Sports Ground, and we don't have a game this weekend due to the NPC tournament. Get down to Parrs Park to support our Saints players on the Auckland team (and Kempy on the Wellington team!) from midday on Sat and Sun.
We organise a number of social events throughout the year. AFL Grand Final Day is a great chance to come down and watch a game with us. Bowls and Golf days are always good value, a chance to bring in your mates and win some prizes.
Congratulations to the winners of the 2012 Saints Raffle, names to posted shortly.
We've still got a few games of AFL 9s left before Christmas at Papatoetoe Sports Ground on Wednesdays, and we'll be looking to be involved in the new season in the New Year, it's a great way to keep fit and to introduce a non-contact form of the game to new players.
Watch this space!
Keep an eye on the website and calendar for upcoming events - we've got our annual AGM/cricket match planned for Feb and 2013 pre-season will start around June/July - drop us a line if you're a new player interested in joining us.
