Annual General Meeting - Feb 4th

Hi everyone, hope that you all had a good Christmas and that the New Year has been treating you well.

Its time for us to start thinking towards the coming season... training will start soon so I hope everyone has done a better job than I have of retaining fitness in the off-season.

But, on to the important news... Greenwood Gaelic Football Club will hold our AGM at The Mighty Quinn on Sunday February 4th at 2pm.

There are a couple of things that we need you to do:

(1) Come along and get involved.

(2) We are seeking nominations for the positions of:
a) President
b) Vice President
c) Treasurer
d) Secretary
e) General Committee members
f) Social Committee members
Feel free to nominate yourself or someone else affiliated with the club.
If possible please email nominations through prior to the AGM

(3) Come along and get involved.

Project assistance

We've been contacted by Brid Fennessy, a Business Studies and Event Management student
in Limerick Institute of Technology in Ireland. He has requested assistance with his final year project.

In his words:

I am in my final year and we have been asked to design a conceptual event idea as our final year project.


The event that I have decided to run is an annual 3-day G.A.A tournament in Co. Tipperary, Ireland where teams from all over the world will be invited to attend.


The focus in the G.A.A. is generally towards the men�s teams so therefore, as a former camogie player, I have decided that the tournament will be for women only. As you know there are many camogie and ladies gaelic football clubs all over the world, not just in Ireland. I propose that we bring these clubs together for the first time to have an international tournament held in the home of the G.A.A.


The matches will be 10 a-side and any teams that cannot bring the full 10 will be permitted to attend as they can be teamed up with people from other teams, if they so wish. There will be a Gala dinner on the final day of the event held in a hotel in Tipperary where the winners will be given their prizes and where ladies G.A.A. itself will be celebrated.


A huge part of this project is the Market Research section, which I am currently undertaking. We have been asked to send out as many questionnaires as possible in order to complete the market research. You will find attached to this message a copy of the questionnaires that I have written for this idea.


I would be extremely grateful if you could possibly fill this questionnaire in yourself and also give it to as many members of your team as possible. This is really essential to me as I need to have a couple of hundred questionnaires in total and the
reply rate from other teams has been very poor so far. I know this is a lot of hassle, especially since the event is only an idea and is not real, but I would be so grateful if you could do this as it is essential to my final year project.


I have made the questionnaire as short and simple as possible to ease the process.


It would be a great help if you could e-mail any completed questionnaires back to me as soon as possible or if you prefer, you could post them to me. Whichever suits you and your team the best.


Once again I know this means a lot of work on your behalf, especially at this time of year, but I would be extremely grateful if you could just send me back as many completed questionnaires as you could as it would be the biggest help to me and my project cannot be completed otherwise.


Yours gratefully,

Brid Fennessy

This is a 15-a-side game so we need everyone down at the grounds... please contact Renae (0401 672 463), Brendan (0448 815 157) or Vaughan (0417 949 774) if you are unable to make it.

See you Wednesday

Regards

Vaughan

Morley Scratch Match

The games from the frienddly match were evenly split - Greenwood won the Women's game, and Morley won the Men's game. Both were hard fought and a lot of fun, as was the craic around the barbecue afterwards.

Thanks to Robbie O'Callaghan from Morley for suggesting the games, and to all members of both comittees who made it happen.

2007 Registration and Transfer Forms

All players within the league need to be registered (even if only playing for one game).
The registration form that covers both the GAA and Greenwood GFC is available at training from Vaughan. 

The GAA WA has reminded us that backpackers/travellers and players transferring from another Australian State or overseas will be required to complete a transfer form/registration form prior to ANY game (including pre season competitions).

Irish backpackers/travellers need to know that the Perth competition is a "League", not a "Championship" competition. This should be noted on Intercounty Tranfer Forms upon return back to Ireland.

The GAA WA has a registrar who is more than happy to help people through the registration process. Ask any of the GGFC Comittee members if you need help in this area. 

Another win

Our Ladies have capped off another year with both the League and the MNA cup returning to our trophy cabinet.

2007 Australasian Championships

Greenwood were well represented in both the Men's and Ladies State Teams in Sydney, both amongst the players and management.

Ladies

Congratulations once again to the Women in 2006 who, having won the League, went on to win their 6th MNA cup in succession.

From 2006

Men

After finishing the 2005 league in 2nd place, the guys lost too many players due to travel and injury to maintain the pace in 2006. It is with regret that we announce that John Collins is returning to London to pursue his career as a sports journalist. John brought energy, experience and a fresh approach into the coaching of the Men's team and he has earned great respect and friendship in the process. All the best for the future John.

From 2006

GAA Sub Committees 2006

The following email has been received from the GAA WA. Please note the request for participants... contact one of our committee if you wish to help out.


All Club Contacts listed above,

There are a few items to be bought to the attention of all Club members in this email. Can you please ensure ALL people within your Club are given access to this, and all other, information that is emailed to you? As one of only a few people within your Club who receive this information, it is very important that you allow all other members of your club to be aware it. If at any time you have any people to be added or removed from your Club�s contact list, please let me know.

  1. Attached are the minutes for the following GAA of WA Sub Committee meetings held recently
    1. Australasian Games Sub Committee Meeting - held 20th Feb 
    2. GAAWA Games Sub Committee Meeting - held 22nd Feb (next meeting is tomorrow night - Wed 8th March 8pm at the Irish Club upstairs) 
    3. Sponsorship & Recruitment Workshop - held 28th Feb 

    Future minutes for all Sub Committee meetings will be emailed to you as they occur.

  2. Representation of all Clubs on all Sub Committees is required

    Three sub committees have commenced meetings (the Australasian Games, the GAAWA Games & Hurling) and two others are yet to field committee members (Youth & State Teams).

    It is extremely important that all Perth based Clubs have at least one representative on each committee. If someone within your club is interested in actively participating in any of the Sub Committees, please contact either myself or Damian McCague. We are especially interested in getting the Youth Sub Committee running ASAP.

  3. Sponsorship & Recruitment Workshop � Ladies Teams

    Due to the success of the recent workshop run by Brian Briscoe; we are looking to hold another workshop in the next few weeks focussing on the Ladies teams. To do this, Brian requires confirmation that all Clubs will have people attending. The first workshop had minimal Ladies team representatives, with the main focus on Men's team issues. We feel the Ladies teams would greatly benefit from a similar discussion.

    If you have interested persons - new members to your Club are always more than welcome too - please email me ASAP. Date & time will be confirmed soon.



Thank you.

State Media Launch of Gaelic football at Tom Bateman Reserve

The Government has approved funding for a dedicated facility for Gaelic Football in WA - Tom Bateman Reserve in Canningvale (corner Roe Highway and Nicholson Rd).

The new facilities once completed will contain 5 change rooms, a canteen, a bar, function rooms and a quality ground for players and spectators.

There is going to be a media event at the ground as a date to be announced. We have been asked to get a couple of people from each team at the ground for the event in team uniform� this could be good exposure for Gaelic and for Greenwood.

Current players, past players and our supporters interested in attending on Thursday morning to throw on a jersey and have a kick in front of the cameras (or just to rub shoulders with the politicians) please let me know at training or just come on down.

Regards

Vaughan

St Patricks Day Games - 26th March 2006

The second day of the St Patrick's day carnival was a successful one for Greenwood.

After joking that she would probably tear a hammy Jane blitzed the field to win the Ladies 100m race (although 100m appears to have shrunk in recent years).

The Mens 100m was slightly longer than the Womens, but still shy of the true distance. Greenwood filled second and third - Congratulations to Vaughan and Steven for their efforts here.

In the Ladies final the Women showed that they will continue be a force to reckon with this year. The final scoreline was 7-11 (32) to 0-2 (2). Well done ladies.

Father Kelly Cup Fixture Change

  • The fixtures for the second week of the Father Kelly Cup have been modified. Two playing fields will be running simultaneously at Collier Reserve in Como which will keep things flowing without the day running too long.

Men' Recruiting

  • Our recruiting efforts have brought a few new faces into the team. It was great to be able to field a Men's team and have substitutes for the first game of the Father Kelly Cup.
  • Game 2 showed that we can't get complacent - if it wasn't for some friendly faces who came down to watch we would not have gotten 15 people onto the field.

Club Positions

  • At the recent special meeting Steven Mickel was appointed to the position of Vice President. Thanks to Steve for stepping up to fill this role in 2006.


Gold Book - Fundraising
  • Orders are now being taken for the 2006 Gold Book Entertainment books.
  • In addition to raising funds for the club these books can save you money - check them out.

GGFC Registration

  • Registration for both the GGFC and GAA are due for the 2006 season. If you haven't got your membership forms in please do so soon.
  • Get your Membership fees in to Lisa before the season starts, as fees will be rising after the first round of the regular season.

Player Transfers

  • The GAA WA has reminded us that players transferring from another Australian State or overseas (including backpackers) will be required to complete a transfer form/registration form prior to ANY game (including pre season competitions).



Bring a friend to training

Getting back to a favourite topic - recruitment... we love to see new players joining the club. Come on down and bring a friend. Its never too late to start finding out how much fun Gaelic football can be.

Farewell John Collins

It is with regret that we announce that John Collins is returning to London to pursue his career as a sports journalist. John brought energy, experience and a fresh approach into the coaching of the Men's team and he has earned great respect and friendship in the process.

In addition to coaching Greenwood, John trained the Men's State Team and will be coaching the State Minor team throughout the Australasian Championships. His departure is a loss not only to Greenwood but to the entire GAA community in Perth.

We wish you all the best John.

2005 Club Diary

posted Mar 2, 2010, 5:43 AM by Vaughan Castine

Bunbury Seven's

Congratulations to both the mens and the ladies teams who competed in Bunbury at the end of February.

The competition was outstanding with all clubs fielding strong teams. The men put in a great effort in hot conditions and the women were once again victorious. Jane Padgett received player of the competition.

Congratulations to Eoin and Sarah

Eoin and Sarah gave birth to their son, Jack Phillip Carberry on the 21st February 2005.

Pre-season Game Sunday 10th April

The guys went down by 9 points to Finbarrs in a pre-season scratch match on Sunday 10th April 2005. A good showing for early in the season...

Father Kelly Cup

The guys had a comfortable win against Southern Districts on Sunday 17th April, then bowed out of the competition the following week after an 8 point loss to Morley.


The women narrowly missed the finals... requiring a 10 point win in their second game they fell 3 points short.

1st May 2005 (vs Southern Districts)

Both teams had comfortable wins against Southern Districts. The guys won 3-16 (25) to 2-4 (10). The women were to coy to tell us their score.

New Sponsor - The Mighty Quinn

The committee is happy to announce that The Mighty Quinn will be joining us as our sponsor for 2005, and hopefully beyond.

A big thanks to Bill and Bob, who we will get to know well over the year.


7th May 2005

A great social night out was had at the Mighty Quinn on 7th May 2005. Those who ate - ate well, those who drank did the same.

Congratulations to Nat and Victoria

Nathan and Victoria gave birth to their daughter Rosa Kate on Monday 9th April 2005.

15th May 2005

Both teams had a win against the Western Shamrocks; the girls won comfortably whilst the guys fought off a late surge by the opposition to retain victory.

Dave won man of the match in the guys game.

22nd May 2005

Both teams had comfortable wins against Morley.

The men won 2-10 (16) to 0-5 (5). Dan and Matt shut Morley down across the center setting up the win... this earned Dan man of the match....

Nobody seems to recall the womens score apart from describing it as a "mauling".


29th May 2005

The guys led for the first 10 minutes of the game against St Finbars, but Finbars showed they wanted the ball and the win more. The final score Greenwood 1-9 (12) went down to Finbars 3-15 (24). Matt did a great job across the middle of the ground earning the fairest and best for the day.

The girls won convincingly 5-13 (28) to 0-2 (2).

5th June 2005

Well, I didn't get to see all the Womens game but with the final score 5-22 (37) to 0-0 (0) there is little doubt that the Women are serious about aiming for a 5th year as champions. We just have to hope that the backline doesn't get too bored.

The guys also managed a win against Southern Districts 3-17 (26) to 0-3 (3). Rory was winning the low ball all over the ground and well deserved the Fairest and Best award.

2005 Men's Season

Mens 2005 Wrap-up

Thanks to everyone for their participation and support in 2005.

It was great to climb another notch on the league ladder this year... even if we faltered a bit at the end of the season it was a great improvement. In the St Patrick's Day Carnival the Men's team was undefeated, however missed the final on a countback of "45"s after drawing the semi-final against Morley. The Guys finished 2nd in the league and at times gave Finnbars cause for concern. 

Travel, work and injury took its toll towards the end of the season - not only did we lose the Monaghan boys, but we also lost some of the Aussies including our Captain (enjoy Melbourne Matt). Being only able to field a team of 12 the week before the finals prompted some soul searching... but former players and those with injuries stepped up (and back onto the field) to ensure that Greenwood had a chance in the semi-finals.

Last year we were mostly first year players. Now with the experience under our belts we just need to add to our numbers and set our sights on one more notch up the ladder, into first for 2006.

Womens 2005 Wrap Up

Greenwood Ladies have successfully participated in another year of Gaelic Football in Western Australia. Although we were knocked off early in the pre-season tournament by Shamrocks, the girls pulled together under the guidance of coach and player Renae Campbell to take out the St Patricks Tournament, the League and MNA Cup.

The successs of our ladies team is largely due to our players returning year after year and their dedication to training. Four of our players represented Australia in the World Cup in September and were undefeated the entire tournament eventually winning the cup for the Third time in a row. Three of these players then flew 20 hrs from Ireland to join another seven of the Greenwood girls in Brisbane to represented the state team in the Australiasian Championships. The final was a nail biter with Western Australia stealing the lead from Brisbane in the final 10 mins of the Grandfinal.

With the average age of the team sneaking up each year we are keen to get some new blood into the team and welcome any interested people to join us.

2004 Season

Ladies

Four in a Row!

A constantly changing line up for the Greenwood Women this year. Losing several key players with serious injuries and a couple even catching the "pregnancy bug". Inconsistent numbers at games gave the women's team a challenging season but everyone loves a challenge.


The women went on to become League Champions and then one step further to take home the MNA Cup. A thrilling final clearly controlled by the awesome Greenwood line up. Coached by Renae Campbell this year, her dynamic style & inventive drills designed to mould new players and fine tune the senior members while still being a dominating player herself. Respected and appreciated by all her team mates for taking on such a demanding role. Congratulations to Lydia Padgett for winning the Fairest & Best trophy for the League. Runner up was Pia Kilburn & Renae Campbell equal third.

Well the guys did very well to finish the season in third. Injury and conflicting commitments meant that there was no such thing as a regular team. We called on some of the players from previous years to come out of retirement as well as adding some new blood; overall we had more than 40 players pulling on the guernsey during the season - this included at least 9 people having a stint in goals. We definitely could not have achieved what we did this year without the awesome coaching efforts from Pearse.


Eoin Carberry got 4th in the Fairest & Best votes for the mens league, he also got to referee the mens final.


Given the high number of first year players next year should be promising...
