Soooo, this happened last week (check out the Facebook link below!)...
A huge thanks to Corey Wingard's team for supporting our growing Club and the many players and volunteers that call it home!
As much as we love our humble tin shed and retro canteen, we're looking forward to a rainproof, modern facility that will be our new home for many seasons to come 🏢🏉
2020 senior fixture!
The Houghton Districts Football Club is pleased to announce that we will be promoted to Division 6 for the 2020 season.
After consultation with our Executive Committee, Football Department and Leadership Group, we felt this was a fantastic opportunity to test our Club against some very strong football clubs and will allow for us to have greater consistency in fixturing across a shortened season (triple headers in Div 6, Div 6 Reserves and C6).
Our Senior Coach, Matty Jones, stated “2020 has been extraordinary to say the least and has presented us with new challenges. As of now we can know exactly where this next chapter of our Football Journey will go. I’m excited at what this could mean for us and we’re preparing to take the challenges head on. Opportunity waits for no one”.
The 2020 season will be a nine round season, commencing on July 4th against Elizabeth at Argana Park.
1 FINAL DOWN
We're one final down and the A Grade are one win away from a Grand Final! It was an unfortunate loss for the Reserves, but will get another opportunity next week. Unfortunately the C Grade couldn't end their season with a win. We also celebrated one of our best, Jesse Schulz's 200th game. A selfless operator always putting the club first, congrats Jesse!
