Preseason Update 2017-2018
Do we have a venue to training? Well there isn't one listed here and that's because we haven't finalised it yet but it will be either Jackson Reserve or McDonald Reserve both in Coburg, there is also the potential for us to be doing some pre-season sessions at Charles Mutton Reserve, Northern Saints ground. We'll let you know later this week or early next week. WE WILL let you know. See the schedule below.
Around The Grounds
At Coburg Superules it's all about keeping you informed in the off-season, here's a little segment we've cobbled together letting you know what's been going on off field...
Will Jesser changed his Facebook profile photo prompting claims that he has had post season cosmetic surgery. We all know Factor is no walking advert for Nivea Men but a facelift?
Speaking of surgery, how juiced up did our President look after his knee clean out operation a recently. It is rumoured that he was so out of it on a cocktail of prescribed pain killers that the league were considering an Essendon like investigation into the Superules supplements program not to mention that he went back to work auctioning off a house in Resa for record price only to find he’d taken bids on the seller’s next door neighbours house which wasn’t on the market!
And the surgery theme continues after it was reported that Mick Egan has been considering going under the knife for a testicle donation. He’s already knocked a tribe full of little tackers so at $70k a pair why not?
Adam and Michelle Lewis and their three kids celebrated 8 years of marital bliss this month. It’s a credit to Michelle and her resilience and we congratulate to her for putting up with him for an extended period as most of us at Coburg Superules can only handle him in small doses. Now the story is that Helmet took Shell out for late night surprise Foreman Grill meal in the lounge room to celebrate followed by a couple of drumsticks for dessert. We just say a big congratulations!
Meanwhile Bananas Branagan, has been doing a bit of promo work for the club on the beaches of Queensland. Mr Movember was seen sunny himself wearing only his Coburg Superules branded shorts and sporting his designer stubble moustacher up on the Sunshine Coast. Ok, here’s the real plug DONATE HERE!
And what about the efforts Sam Di Falco and Craig McKay, these two fitness nut jobs have been burning up the track in the off season.
The often controversial TV critic, political antagonistic and sometimes football analyst Sam Di Falco has traded his Bachelorette time for Nikes and churned out 4.28 minute kilometres in the 15km City2Sea fun run. That’s whoop ass speed and in comparison to Frank Massara’s runkeeper post indicating 7.02 minutes per kilometre, Sam makes Frank look like a sloth!
Whilst not Di Falco’s partner in crime, Craig “Macca” McKay is of the same ilk. The self-confessed fitness tragic, athletic freak and back pocket plumber, completed the grueling Shepparton Challenge Triathlon in the 45-49 years of age category in 5 hours, 40 minutes and 39 seconds, finishing 26th in his category, not bad first up. I mean we think, of course, there better ways to spend our time and we’d probably be saying that’s 6 hours of our lives that we won’t get back but hey well done Macca!
We will soon be seeing the preseason headlines “McKay and Di Falco training the house down”, then we got to thinking…a preseason challenge?…can you see it now?...Di Falco v McKay?
And yes, we do love headline and if we are talking about amazing feats then one cannot go past, the human headline (or at least the human headline of Facebook), Troy “Selfie” Jones. He took another step towards fame after he claimed the coveted gold medal in the Essendon Wine Bar dance off. It was a hard fought contest but judges stated that his signature “shake your tushy” move got him home on points.
Finally has anyone seen Saddo’s B&F runner up trophy? It was last seen doing the rounds and being used as prop in selfies at the same venue that Jonesy danced his way to success. If anyone does find it, please return it with a tube of super strength araldite.
And that’s the mid November wrap, see you at preseason…
From The 2017 AGM
It's exciting to announce that Tony Lombardi with be continuing on in his role as President of great club after the AGM was held last Thursday night where he was elected unopposed. Tony along with Carlo Federico provided great leadership in our 25th Anniversary season and he sees the job not finished yet as we head towards securing a premiership.
Tony spoke of the importance of player welfare, continuing to create the family environment, growing our sponsorship and building on the excellent performances from last season. His initial priority was to secure a senior coach and get preseason underway.
Whilst Carlo Federico and Paul Turner stepped down from the Executive, Pete Cummins (Secretary) and Frank Massara (Treasurer) continued on and were joined by Dave Pengelly (Vice President) and Craig McKay (Football Operations Manager) on the Executive.
Some new roles were filled. Carlo Federico took on the General Member (Club Liaison) role as an advisor to the committee, Paul Turner moved to the General Member (Welfare Manager) role and Ron Torcasio stayed on the committee in a new role as General Member (Assistant Secretary). Paul Pitman remained as General Member (League Liaison).
Cedar Ferri remained and Ray Ransome joined as a General Members. Allan Mathews will continue to head up the past players group.
We are still on the look out for an Assistant Treasurer to assist Frank Massara and some individuals to fill up the Social Committee to assist with organising social functions. If you've got anything you'd like to contribute at that level let someone from the Committee.
