U19’s into Semi Final 2019


This Sunday the U19’s play in the Semi Final against Lilydale.  The game is at East Ringwood Reserve on Sunday September 1st from 10am.

Earlier in the season the U19’s defeated Lilydale at their ground, but they got us back in the return game at home.  Both games were close so it should be a cracking game.

The team is unchanged from last weeks big victory over Knox.

Steve Cochrane to continue in 2020

Great news for the Devils – Steve Cochrane is committed to continuing as Senior coach of the Devils for season 2020. Steve’s experience, leadership and care of the players is outstanding, and the club was very keen for him to continue next season. The enthusiastic reaction from the players and supporters to the announcement tonight was fantastic as everyone knows we have the right man as our Senior Coach.
