Attention all Players, members and supporters.
Well done to our Seniors and Thirds Football teams winning in the first week of the Final Series. Reserves have done a fantastic job in season 2017 but unfortunately lost against Wodonga.
Second week – Wangaratta Magpies seniors will play Albury and our Thirds will play those over the road, we wish both teams the very best.
Wishing our under 16 Netball team all the best at the weekend, the girls have been the strongest team throughout 2017, go girls.
The first Carnival for our All Abilities Merriwa Magpies was held in Wodonga on Sunday the 28th of May, teams competing were us the Merriwa Magpies, Wodonga Jets, Echuca Rockets and GV All Stars, each team played one another in a round robin competition. The Merriwa Magpies won the carnival by defeating all other teams on the day, the boys played really well and showed their skills that Bob Murray has been teaching them over the last few months at training on a Thursday night at the Norm Minns Oval. We had 23 players who showed great sportsmanship and talent, so congratulations team on winning the first medals of this years competition. Big thank you to our coaches Bob Murray and Georgie Waite, our support staff in John Mullins and Mal Moncrieff.
Bart Crawley CEO of Merriwa Industries came and watched the team play and was very impressed with their skills. Thank you to Bart and Merriwa for being our major sponsor.
Our next Carnival will be in Echuca on Sunday the 25th of June. Looking forward to more wins and great play by our team. Ros Taylor team manager WFNC Merriwa Magpies.
