Ipswich Eagles ready for 2011

THE Ipswich Eagles enter the new year with fresh hopes and a solid foundation after some impressive pre-season work.

“Although the numbers on Monday were a little disappointing, all of the training sessions so far have been very impressive with the number attending,” recently-appointed club president Mick Whiteley said.

“New coach Dave Hume is impressed and excited about the rest of the pre-season, with numbers we will be expecting.

“This puts us in a good position for the upcoming season, as there will be pressure on everyone to perform or lose their spot in their team.”

Eagles’ training resumes on Monday, January 10 (6pm), at Limestone Park.

While happy with the way the Eagles were progressing, Whiteley said the club was still searching for a Reserve grade coach. “This position can be non-playing, or playing in reserves or A grade,” Whiteley said, inviting applications.

Whiteley said the Eagles were also considering a women’s team for the 2011 season.

Under-18 players are welcome to join the club.

Interested players can contact Whiteley on 0416276545 or football manager Ray Flux on 0418983184.

Whiteley’s wife Trish has been appointed club secretary.

The club is looking for an administrator to run the Eagles website. Contact Whiteley if you are interested.
