This team which was made up from the nucleus of last years r4th Grade white Team had problems early in the season with the skills and basics of the game which were learnt last year. However, with perseverance the team did combine better towards the latter part of the season and produced some very good wins and performances, particularly against the other two 13th Grade teams within the club.
It was heartening from the coaches point the 'non-stars' of the team get a better understanding of the game, to the extent team ended up without any real stars and great satisfaction.
If this team sticks together for another year I am sure better results will be forthcoming.
The following players were called upon to represent the combined l3th Grade Northcote representative team:
Grant Backler, Aaron Chambers, Trent Fearnley, James Watson, Jeremy Dawkins, Jason Sturmey and Julian Williams.
