2021 End of Season Team Presentation
23 September 2021
It was fantastic to have our final catch up with the team to celebrate the end of the 2021 U11’s season. Ideally this would have been face-to-face, over pizza and involve an epic ‘Parents vs Kids’ footy match… however this was unfortunately not possible. So Zoom was the next best thing!
Coach Nate and Assistant Coach Geoff expressed their praise for the kids’ growth and development through the course of the season, which culminated in a Top 4 finish and Finals in a normal year. It was great to hear the highlights from the coaches and re-live those great times that the short 2021 season provided us.
Four special awards were announced, with the Best & Fairest count being a very even affair. In the end, Sandy took home the honours with the most votes from coaches and parents, closely followed by Oscar. Well done boys for your ripper first year of footy! Gabe won the Coaches Award for his amazing year that kept getting better and better, and Raf was awarded Best Club Person for his awesome teamwork, support, leadership and values.
Can’t wait for 2022!!!

R3: Macleod vs Fitzroy
R2: Fitzroy vs Templestowe (ANZAC Day)
25 April 2021 – Fitzroy 8.8.56 vs Templestowe 10.5.65
So close! The team showed a lot of grit and determination to turn around a 22 point deficit, to then lead in the last quarter. Great game, but unluckily we were pipped at the last post.
R1: Fitzroy vs Northcote
18 April 2021 – Fitzroy 9.8.62 vs Northcote 5.5.35
Huge come from behind win for the team! We didn’t trouble the scorers in the first quarter, but halfway through the second quarter, and for the rest of the game, we went bang, bang, bang!!! After nearly two years off, the boys showed they still have it.
The 2021 Season is here!
Footy is back! Yay! We have ripper pack of kids, many from the 2019 U9’s, some from U10’s last year who unfortunately didn’t play a game, and several new faces in 2021. It’s going to be an awesome season. GO ROYS!
