Welcome back to all the Dolphins supporters from what has been a longer than usual off-season for the Club. It is great to be getting back into some footy and the Dolphins wish all our supporters an enjoyable and healthy 2005.
The Club welcomes in a whole new coaching staff this season with Anthony Griffin returning to steer the ship as head coach. The lower grades see some Dolphin Oval favourites back with Ian �Iggy� Graham in charge of the A Grade and Waverly Stanley taking the reins of the Colts. The strength & conditioning has also seen a change with another former Dolphin in Tony Guilfoyle whipping the guys into top shape.
Thank you to President Des Webb and his Board, General Manager Wally Day and Operations Manager Tony Murphy from the Redcliffe Leagues Club who returns as our Principal Sponsor, your support is greatly appreciated.
Cadbury Schweppes through Pepsi also return as our Major Sponsor and Maxgaming through their Moneytrain II product are back on board as the clubs sleeve sponsor. It is great to have such high profile companies associated with the Dolphins and again the club thanks them for their support.
Our team sponsors remain the same with Searles Garden Products again sponsoring our Player of the Year Award, Keystar Autoworld looking after the Premier Grade Players Player, Hog�s Breath Caf� the A Grade Man of the Match and Leading Edge Sports the Colts Man of the Match. Thanks to Con Searle, Peter Robinson, Charlie Curtis, Brian Rawnsley, Michael Drumm, Peter Clark and Brian Swan for your assistance.
The Dolphins travel to Bishop Park on Sunday to tackle Norths in all three grades in what lines up as a good day of footy. All the best to the players who have all worked extremely hard through the off-season and now get a chance to sink their teeth into playing.
Next week at Dolphin Oval is planned as a big day with the theme being �Save our Dolphin Day�, we are calling an all supporters to come out in force with their Red & White gear on to send a strong message about the Dolphins close affiliation with our emblem. It will be good day with some good footy sure to be on offer with Easts lining up as our opponents in three grades. Hope to see you there
