TREMBATH TO PLAY LEAGUE MATCH V WEST
Glenelg forward Josh Trembath will play his first league match of the year against West at Gliderol Stadium on Saturday night. Forced to adhere to certain physical
guidelines at the start of the season, Trembath has worked his way into meaningful form in the reserves, kicking nine goals in his past two outings.
‘’He’s been in fantastic form,’’ Glenelg football manager Matt Lokan said.
‘’He had some boxes he needed to tick in the pre-season. To his credit, and it shows how much the footy club means to him, he went away and did that.
‘’He’s come back and been nearly like a new player so we’re excited he’s getting the opportunity to play and we know it means a fair bit to him too.’’
Small forward Andrew Hooper will add more goalscoring power after his stint in the reserves while Billy Hayes and Tom Muir have also been included in the Tigers’ 23-man squad.
‘’Hoops needed to get some form,’’ Lokan said.
‘’It wasn’t just about kicking goals, it was about defensive efforts and what he does when he hasn’t got the footy.’’
Hooper effectively replaces Wade Hancock in attack while key defender Michael Galley has also been sent back to the reserves.
GLENELG VS WEST TRIPLE HEADER
We will be trying out a different format with this Saturday’s game against West Adelaide.
It will be a triple header! We start the day with Reserves commencing at 1pm, then followed by the U18’s at 3.45pm, with the main game commencing under lights at 6.30pm.
It’s a great opportunity for the U18 boys to experience a bigger crowd playing the lead-in match to the league game. It’s also a great opportunity for our members and supporters to watch some of our junior talent as well as see our senior sides in action in the same location on the same day.
We look forward to seeing you all here at Gliderol Stadium, cheering on all 3 teams in what we hope will be a great day and night for the club.
Presentations for all three grades will follow the league match at 10pm in the Bar & Bistro. Everybody is welcome!
