Club of the Year

We are super proud to announce that we were awarded Adelaide Uni Sport’s ‘Club of the Year (Bennett Shield)’ at last week’s Blue’s Awards!

The Bennett Shield is awarded to a club with more than 50 members which AU Sport considers to be an “ideal” club. The reward is a $1,000 financial incentive towards a particular club project and a perpetual shield is presented in recognition of Richard Bennett, one of the first two AU Sport Life Members.

Says AUNC President, Hayley Kroon, “This award is a true reflection of the hard work and commitment from all of our volunteers and members. 2018 was a fantastic year for us; 2 premierships, 4 runner ups, 42 new members (over 50% of our winter players!), many social events, a lot of training and hard work, wins.... and losses but as always, friendships and countless fun times. The club we’re becoming is exciting and that’s all thanks to our players, coaches, umpires, scorers and timers (thanks partners, friends and family) and committee members. Well done legends, you should be proud... we are!”

Here’s to a bigger and better 2019! 🖤🦁
