Tigers Celebrate a Successful Year!
There was a point where we didn't even think the 2020 season would go ahead, but last Friday Night the club celebrated another highly successful year at their Wynd / Bright Medal Presentation Event.
With Covid Restrictions still in place 200 players, volunteers, parents and supporters came together at the Hellenic Club to recognise this years Best & Fairest, Volunteers & Perpetual award winners.
Also with the Annual 100 Club Function having to be cancelled, all 2020 inductees were recognised during the Presentation Event.
As mentioned the Tigers celebrated many accolades with the club winning it's 3rd Club Championship in a row, Minor Premierships in both 1st Grade Men's & Women's teams, Grand Final appearances for the above teams plus the Super Two's Women's team, finals appearances in our Super Two's Men & Rising Stars, Jack Carroll-Tape winning the Reserve Grade League Medal, Tarni Evans drafted to the GWS Giants and finally the Men's 1st Grade Premiership!
