Girls are doing it for themselves

17-Jul-2016

On Friday 8 July the crowd were not only treated to an entertaining senior women’s match but also saw the inaugural Auskick Roy Girls Grid Game at half time. The half time game was played in great spirits and the girls enjoyed the crowd support.

Jo Hogan, Fitzroy-ACU Women’s 2 coach understands Auskick is an important first step in creating a development pathway for women and girls playing footy. Events like the grid game create those opportunities for girls to learn and grow as players.

"Events like tonight, where children can experience the magic of behind the scenes and meet their role models up close and personal, ignites their passion of our game. To see the joy and excitement of these young players as they ‘got amongst it’ could be seen in bucket loads at Vic Park," said Jo.

Not only is it a great experience for the girls from Auskick, it also allowed the Fitzroy-ACU leadership team to provide support to the girls before and during the half time game.

Jo stated, “It's an opportunity for our leadership team to be part of growing and inspiring footy in our community. Our senior ACU/Roy Girls demonstrated inclusiveness, belonging and the magic of team and support. They embraced the Fitzroy Auskickers and provided them with a night to remember. And I’m sure they will remember it for a long time to come."

Did you know? One of the Auskick girls made a small ‘Trophy Award’ for the Roy Girl who showed the ‘most team work, participated fairly and had fun.’ Well done to Gemma Minuz who received the girl’s award!

Dom hits the ton

28-Jun-2016

It was an excellent return from injury for Fitzroy Vice Captain, Dom Pound Palmieri on Saturday. Not only did the team get back onto the winners’ list in Premier B, but Dom also played his 100th senior game for the club.

Fitzroy travelled to a muddy Princes Park Caufield for a meeting with Old Haileybury and made up for the round two loss with a four goal win, 13.11.89 to 10.5.65.

It was a good day all round with the Reserves hanging on to win by one point in the earlier game.

Co-captain Rory Angiolella set the tone early and didn’t let up all day, going in for repeated tackles and clearances out of the mud bog in the middle of the ground. He required multiple jumper changes throughout the afternoon and was acknowledged by the coaches for his efforts.

His fellow captain, Dan Bisetto, kicked the first goal and competed strongly around the ground in ruck and marking contests, despite being double-teamed on many occasions.

It was an excellent first half display from Fitzroy, with Luke Baker going forward and kicking four goals. Jack Dalton also chimed in with three. Sam Baker, Peter Baccanello and Tom Biscaro all played strong games.

But as they did in round 2 at Brunswick Street, Old Haileybury displayed a lot of fight and superior fitness in the second half, finishing the stronger and giving Fitzroy a fright before the steadied and locked down their fifth win, joining a log jam in the middle of the ladder, where they now sit in 6th position.

In the lead up to the game, team mate Tom Cheshire spoke about Dom’s contribution to the team. “Whether it's on the field or in the change room, Dom's positive attitude on and off the track is something all the boys love and appreciate.

“He'll forever make us laugh yet keep it serious when need be; a real skill he has developed since becoming a leader at the club. I really feel he has thrived since becoming a vice captain - having watched Dom fly through the ranks since Under 19s, I've really noticed his leadership qualities grow as he cements himself as a future leader for many years to come.”

Tom says Dom is one of the fittest players at the club and it’s his gut running and selflessness that are his strongest on-field attributes, always putting the team first.

Congratulations Dom!
