Happy New Year to everyone.
2013 promises to be an exciting but challenging year in Tasmanian football.
It will be the inaugural year of the Victory League, the new State-wide competition.
KGV Park will have been turned into an artificial all-weather pitch.
The year will start with a competitive A-League game at Launceston’s Aurora Stadium between top sides Melbourne Victory and Central Coast Mariners.
Tasmanian players are beginning to make their mark on the A-League, with Jeremy Walker making his senior debut with Melbourne Heart, and he and Will Abbott in the ranks of the Melbourne Heart National Youth League squad.
The signs are there that the game is progressing in Tasmania.
We must hope that there will be a good turnout at Aurora Stadium next month and that local attendances for Victory League games will be high.
I wish everyone every success in 2013 and hope sincerely that it will be a landmark season for Tasmanian football.
