The Senior Player Auction is back this season. You’ve had your chance to view the Senior squad in action at home now after their first hard fought wins, so get ready to bid on your favourite player next week. Any bid will be accepted, large or small, so either individually or grouped with friends, come and show your support for the squad.

Senior Players in the Division 1-3 squad will be up for auction, and at the end of each home game the respective coach will decide who was best on ground, where the player and the purchaser will then receive players vouchers that are valid to be used at the club this season.
Recycling and Ground Maintenance
Please dispose of cans and bottles is the club’s collection bins (240lt). When setting up before each game, please place a milk crate outside each dug out for the can and bottle collection.
It is estimated that hundreds of dollars is thrown in the general waste bins at 10c a piece.
With the rain that Adelaide has had so far this year, and the expectation that we will see more. It is important that after games and training that the cut outs are raked level to stop water pooling in low spots.
Loose dirt and clay will also become sloppy, so please compact this where possible. Compacted areas will handle the rain better.
