Welcome to the Nightcliff Football Club
Become a member of the Nightcliff Football Club
Welcome everyone to the 2016/17 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. We are also very excited to be welcoming our new Premier League Coach Troy Coates. Many of you will already be familiar with Troy as a player of our club and also the Nichols Medal Winner in 2011/12 season. Troy has been coaching Kerang Football Club in the Bendigo League and is a successful Premiership coach winning the past four Grand Finals with Kerang. Troy also broke a five year drought as the winning coach of the Central Murray League team in the AFL Victoria Country Championships this year. He also won the Player of the Year award for the Central Murray Football League last season as well as the Leading Goal kicker. So we are very excited and confident that Troy will take us to the next level. Please make him welcome when you see him around the club over the next few months.
With the success of last season, having eight teams out of twelve in the Grand final,winning three premiership flags, we are excited about the 2016/17season. We will have thirteen teams participating this year with the inclusion of an Under 18's Youth Girls 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.
All presentations for both Junior and Senior players were held at the end of the season. Congratulations to all our winners across all grades. The Mabel Griffin Award for volunteers of the Year was won by Frank Grabarz in appreciation of his commitment to the Nightcliff Football Club. The Spirit of the Tiger Award was won by Tammy Noden. Tammy came to our club as a women's player and ended up fulfilling the role of club physio! Well done to both of these worthy winners.
Congratulations also to our players who won the AFLNT Best and Fairest medals for their respective grades:
Kayden Malseed - Under 16's Leverence Fatt Medal
Nathan Mu - Under 16's Hickman Medal
Jaise Coleman - Division 2 Lancaster Medal
Brodie Filo - 2015/16 Nichols Medal winner for Premier Leagu
NO MORE CAMPAIGN
On Tuesday 17th June, 2014 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.
We welcome any new sponsors to our club for 2016/17. If you would like to become a sponsor, please contact Mark Kelly on 0409510767. There is still billboard sponsorship available at TIO Stadium, this offers great exposure for any sponsor and we would love to hear from you.
This season we also introduce Home Game sponsorship, where you can have a home game round named after your business. $1000 gives you free advertising in the week leading up to the game, provision to have advertising flyers at the game, access for five people to the Presidents Balcony including drinks and food, access for two people to the change rooms prior to the game and all advertising banners on display on game day. What a great package! Various other sponsorship packages are available, so contact the club today!
