Once a year our Men's 1st Grade team compete against Queanbeyan for the MUIR MEDAL. The Muir Medal represents the massive contributions of the late Alan Muir (Qbyn) and his son Ian Muir (Ainslie) and is awarded to the best player. Both Alan & Ian played in excess of 200 games with their respective clubs and their contribution after playing has been even more significant.

Come down this Saturday to see a great game and see who will be the 2021 Muir Medallist.

Men's 1st Grade
Season Wrap to-date

 
The season so far, regarding our win/loss record, is going okay and probably reflects where we are as a young group. We all would have liked a couple more wins but but our relative inexperience while a short-term challenge is at the same time really very exciting.  It’s great being able to observe the talent we have coming through, made more exciting knowing that so much of it has come through our Junior Footy program.

One of the highlights was our come from behind win against Belconnen in Round 4. It has given our players the belief we are heading in the right direction. 

We have had our challenges with players getting injured each game but that opens opportunities for other players to step up which they have. 

We will keep working hard and heading in the right direction, and come the business end of the season, you just never know where it might see us. But there is a lot of hard work to be done before we get there.
Our challenge as a young group is to find consistency and I truly believe we, knowing its just going to take time to get our desired level.

Looking forward to the back half of the year with a few more wins to come.

Women's 1st Grade

Season Wrap to-date

 
The women’s teams are hitting some form heading toward the half-way mark of the competition. The 1st Grade side are sitting clear in 3rd place with good wins over teams that have proved to be a nemesis in the past, namely Eastlake and Queanbeyan. Belconnen still have the bragging rights over Ainslie for the moment, until we meet again in 2 weeks! 

The youth girls, the likes of Ellie Bishop, Tess Cattle, Georgie Jaques, Liv Seymour and Khiana Smith, have made the step up to senior football, and have well and truly made their mark and cemented their spots in the senior side. 
With some injuries to major players putting a bit of a dampener on spirits, the mood can be lifted through the return of last years best and fairest Georgia Clayden who will run out with the 2s this weekend coming back from a knee injury.  
 
The 2nd Grade side have had an up and down start to the season, but have been in form the last few weeks with wins over Tuggeranong and Jets - and narrowly going down to probably the best side in the league last week.  

The season looks good for the women’s squad who are playing good and consistent football and really gelling as sides.
