Well season 2021 didn’t quite go as planned but we’re getting used to that now. We are becoming brilliantly resilient and flexible in order that we can pivot and take on what ever is thrown our way!
Thank you to all the amazing SBMT members within our club for the work and passion you have maintained throughout these difficult times. Your efforts are appreciated by all.
AFL Grand Final
At the St Bedes/Mentone Tigers we are fortunate to have connections to both of the teams in this year’s AFL Grand Final. As the article from The Age this week states:
“Luke Beveridge’s successful stint coaching St Bede’s Mentone to three consecutive VAFA premierships has been well documented, but his right-hand man during that stretch, Tim Lamb, has had a significant influence on helping Melbourne reach their first grand final since 2000. The two friends will be hoping for different results in the grand final having fought hard for the silverware 15 years ago when Beveridge was a playing coach in C grade with St Bede’s and Lamb was not only the reserves coach but the Beveridge’s eyes and ears on the boundary when the seniors played.”
We wish both teams, Western Bulldogs and Melbourne the very best for tomorrow. I’m sure many Victorians going through tough times at the moment are pleased that regardless of the outcome the silverware will be coming back here afterwards!
