2018 best clubman
Traditionally, the honour of HDFCs Best Clubman has been awarded to a player who has epitomised the true Raider spirit during the season.
This year, we could not go past a very passionate individual, who did once grace us with his talent on the football field, but is now forging a new path for our Club in the junior football arena.
Kyron Lovell is a man like no other. His endless endeavour and motivation for our Club and our future is something to admire and aspire to. He is the very embodiment of a Raider.

2018 Adelaide footy league division 7 reserves medallist
Congratulations to Rhett Glanville, for being awarded the Adelaide Footy League's Medallist for Division 7 Reserves in 2018! That's two years in a row!
What a month it's been!
The Reserves made Raider history by going undefeated in Season 2018 and taking out the D7R AdFL Premiership. Well done to Hendo, AR, Liam and every player who did their part to get our team to a Grand Final victory.
We hosted another Junior Come 'N' Try event in readiness for our Term 4 Auskick and 2019 Junior preparations. It was a huge success, with more than 30 kids seeing what Houghton has to offer under the guidance of KB, our ever-enthusiastic Junior Coordinator.
Our plans for the 2018 Annual Presentation Night continued, with just over a week to go til our biggest event of the season! We look forward to announcing our A Grade Club Champion and Reserves Best and Fairest for Season 2018.
Our Junior and Senior Football Departments are evolving to help create a sustainable and enjoyable environment for our ever-expanding Raider family.
