There was a lot happened in this second half of the season, starting with our 50th Year Anniversary Dinner for our 1964/65 Premiership team. There was also a special presentation to our 200 game players. Charlie King was the MC on the night, so we all had a fantastic night.
LADIES DAY HIGH TEA
If you had been attending our games, you would have noticed that our Premier League players were wearing a special warm up shirt before the games. On the back there is a name and number. This represents the name and age diagnosed, of a special lady who has allowed us to use their name to highlight and support NT Breast Cancer Voice. On Sunday 1st February, we held a High Tea before our last home game of the season, where these shirts were auctioned off and a donation from all proceeds was donated to NT Breast Cancer Voice. The shirts have now been delivered to all the successful bidders
Yes it was that time of year again when we run or swim our annual Duck Race. This was our third year for our Duck Race and it has proved to be a popular event. 2000 ducks raced in heats with the Grand Final winning Duck earning their owner $4000! Second Duck won $1000 and the third duck $500. There is also $100 for each heat winner.
NO MORE CAMPAIGN
On Tuesday 17th June, Nightcliff Football Club in conjunction with Catholic Care NT launched the NO MORE campaign in it's fight against domestic violence, with the unveiling of a sign in the change rooms of the club and the unwrapping of a Buslink bus carrying the message.
At today's bus unwrapping CatholicCare NT in partnership with Nightcliff Football Club presented the very first domestic violence action plan to Minister Bess Price.
Charlie King, Chair of the NT Indigenous Males Advisory Council and NO MORE campaigner said domestic violence action plans will be used as a plank to build a Northern Territory wide strategy that aims to reduce the unacceptable high level of violence in our community.
"As part of the campaign Nightcliff football club has stepped up to show their support with the development of a domestic violence action plan and a sign at their home ground.
"We are calling on all sporting codes and clubs to consider developing a domestic violence action plan.
"In addition we will encourage all Territorians to become supporters of the NO MORE campaign by registering at www.nomore.org.au," said Mr King.
Welcome everyone to the 2014/15 NTFL season. Please have a look through our website to find the information you need.
Nightcliff Football Club is looking for great things this season and we are pretty excited with our new and current players.
With the success of last season, winning five out of six premiership flags on Grand Final day, we are excited about the 2014/15 season. We will have twelve teams participating, an increase with the introduction of a youth girls team and a second Under 18's team.
We also welcome all our sponsors, those who have been with us for the long haul and those who have joined us recently. We thank them for their generous support, so if you see any of them around the club this season, please thank them as their generosity is what allows us to operate so successfully
Thank you also to all the many volunteers old and new who have once again put their hand up to help out where needed. Without these fantastic people, and the many hours they give, the club and your teams simply would not be able to operate. Volunteers are still needed in all grades, so if you can cut oranges, do the time keeping, run water, wash jumpers or anything that may help, please go and see your team officials and let them know. You will be welcomed with open arms!
To all the players who make up our great club, good luck, play fair, put in the hard yards on the training track and you will be rewarded. We hope many of you will use this as a pathway to greater things.
We welcome any new sponsors to our club for 2014/15. If you would like to become a sponsor, please contact Mark Kelly on 0409510767. There is still billboard sponsorship available at TIO Stadium on our six panel board. This offers great exposure for any sponsor and we would love to hear from you. Various sponsorship packages are available, so contact the club today!
