With the football season back upon us SPOC Football Club is pleased to announce we are again fielding 4 sides again in 2021, offering plenty of opportunities for both old and young to play the game they love. We will be hosting six home rounds with all 4 sides playing at home, so they will be the perfect days to come along and support the club.
The boys have come back from their off-season hiatus in great condition and so far approached pre-season with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and focus on trying to improve on last season.
February 19 saw us play in a trial game under lights at Richmond where a SPOC Under 23 team took on a West Adelaide Under 21 team, where our game plan was deployed and there was plenty of lessons learned and improvement demonstrated. While on March 20 our senior playing list had a good hit out against Langhorne Creek coming away with two wins, with a hard and fast game implemented.
There has been a slight shuffle in the 2021 player leadership group, which was peer-elected by the playing group and endorsed unanimously by the committee.

Vice Captains – Jock McLeay (WDK 2009) & James Moriarty (HWD 2013)
