Brighton Lacrosse Club

19 Sep 2018 speech

Last weekend the Brighton Bombers Lacrosse Club finished the 2018 season in truly winning style. All 14 of the club's teams, including their junior women's and men's sides, made the finals, with 10 teams progressing to the grand final round. Of those 10 teams, the Brighton Lacrosse Club last weekend claimed an astonishing seven premierships. I congratulate all of the players and the members at the club for a very successful season—in particular the club president, Jason Webb, for his hard work throughout the season.


I congratulate the following premiership-winning teams: the under-13 boys, coached by Andrew Dallisson and Sam Perkins, and captained by Tom Perkins and Will Dallisson; the under-13 girls, coached by Leah Osborne and captained by Kiera Voysey; and the under-15 boys, coached by Joel Tilbrook and Bob Carter and captained by Ethan West and Harry Edwards. Congratulations also to the under-17 boys, led by coaches Toby Raymond and Peter Mathwin and captains Doug Brookes and Cody Rosenthal; the under-18 girls, coached by Beth Varga and captained by Abby Thorne and Adalia Brokensha; and the division 1 women, coached by Jayne Bartholomew and Trish Adams. Finally, huge congratulations go to the Brighton Bombers Lacrosse Club state league women's side for their premiership win against Woodville, with a very close score of 10 points to nine. This is a fantastic effort.


I congratulate the entire team, including captain Bron McLeod and coaches Trish Adams and Cassie Cursaro. Congratulations to everyone at the Bombers.
