Quoting Manny:
Congratulations to Bernie Siggins and George Arnott on your awards. I remember during my playing days for the Caledonians Soccer Club how these guys demonstrated their great love for the club, the players, the supporters and for the game. Nothing has changed and what you see is what you get and much more. A great reward from the club and an appreciation from us all.

Well said, nice work YERO in winning the best and fairest for the 35s!

I seriously doubt that Kingborough will ever be more than they have become - a good community club, but never a powerhouse. Will take surprise points off better teams, as they have done over past years, but will finish mid-table or lower, as consistent performances will continue to elude them. I hope my doubs are unconfirmed and that a new coach ( please from outside the club) can turn them around.

Kingborough appear to have had a decent year. A preseason trophy and a finaLS BIRTH. If the coach was not deemed good enough the pressure will be on the replacement next year.

I agree #18 - so good they sacked their coach!

I think the current committee have been there far too long. They have achieved very little and need to allow others to come in and take the club in a new direction.
