ONE FOR AFL COACHES
"One specific category that had a very strong correlation with not being scored against but no correlation with scoring over the past 10 years was the number of hitouts a team achieved." (Nick Crocker, Sports Analyst, ' 2016 AFL Season Predictions')
TWENTY YEARS AGO TODAY......THE BROADY CATS CAME OUT TO PLAY.... LET ME INTRODUCE TO YOU (Think Beatles)
2016 celebrates the twentieth anniversary of footy's holy grail - a ThreePeat in one day! In 1996, our farewell season to the Gold Coast Australian Football League, our Seniors, Ressies and Colts won flags on the hallowed turf of the Cattery. The photo in the slider above is the senior squad of the day. Click here for an expanded view with names attached. Crank up the zoom.
We have also developed a self explanatory summary of the 1996 season in four parts. In them you will find familiar and legendary names associated with the club. A good read will get your knowledge of this rare achievement up to speed for the reunion. Click here for Part I, here for Part II, here for Part III, and here for Part IV. You may need to zoom to read the newspaper clippings.
Part I references a 1996 Grand Final Day Cats Whisper. Click here for selected pages of that document with August and Sept lead-in scores, goals and best players for all three grades.
If you have any memorabilla, particularly of the Ressies and Colts, let's know and we can add to our archives. Any discrepancies between documents, archives and memories may be attributed to the Bully, alcohol or tired eyes of today's or yesteryears' generation.
Having read all that you might be interested in the document about our entry into the QAFL in 1997. This was published on the web site mid season 2015. Click here
LOVE IS IN THE AIR, DO DO DO DO DO
Tireless volunteers, Linda and Dicko, a couple married to our footy club, will say 'I do' (at the club) on the eve of this 2016 leap year, (as tradition would have it) , 4 long years after Linda ambushed Dicko with a 2012 leap year proposal (as tradition would have it). Wonderful people, wonderful news!

PS All, should be aware that this club runs on the inputs of volunteers, and while many are recognised, the Board, which is comprised of volunteers, often goes unnoticed.
Job well done to the Board in 2015!
