WHERE – Grantham Reserve, Seven Hills map it
WHEN – 11am for EVERYONE (Colts/4th Grade to start at 11:30am)

TOMORROW: Internal Trials @ Koola

Published March 20, 2015


Details have been confirmed for a day of internal trials this Saturday, March 21. We have Koola Park booked for the festivities and will expect EVERYONE, including injured players, there at 11:30am.
The set-list for the day will be as follows…

12:00pm Colts A v Colts B
1:00pm Colts v Mixed Seniors
1:40pm Possibles v Probables

IMPORTANT! Can everyone please bring a non-lindfield rugby jersey!

The game formats will vary slightly, but Colts will be playing 2 x 25min halves, and then another 25min half against a mixture of the seniors. Possibles and Probables will likely be playing a number of shorter sessions over the afternoon, as we look at few players in different positions.

Once we finish, around 3pm, we expect a good flow of cold beer at the Greengate.

Any questions please ask.

The Big Dance

Published September 12, 2014

To all Family, Friends, Past & Current Soldiers;

Two teams will head to TG Milner Oval in Eastwood tomorrow to contest their respective Grand Finals.

The Blunt Cup (3rd Grade) has been won by the club 4 times in the 43 year history of the cup; with all 4 of those coming in the last 16 years. The most recent was the famous 2008 & 2009 teams. Some of which are still in this current team! The current squad is 14-4 for the 2014 season and have a star-studded line-up for tomorrows encounter. 10:15am kickoff.

The Robertson Cup has been in existence for 25 years and has been won by Lindfield 3 times in its history. The last time we took home the Cup was the 2005 season. The current crop are 18-1 for the year and are extremely focused and determined to do the business. 11:40am kickoff.

There are a few good reasons as to why one would begin consumption of that infamous brew of hops and barley so early on a Saturday morning and the big-dance is on the top of that list!

Come and support this proud club if you have the time. We have former players and committee members coming from far and wide to see the boys lift the trophies.

We are heading as a group to the Greengate Hotel at the conclusion of the Colts trophy presentation (around 2:30pm) for some lunch and a catch up. Plans are in place for watching the Wallabies & kick-on at a secret location… if you want to be involved see you at the Gate!

Win, loose or draw the Old Soldier is already super proud.

However, winning seems to be everyone’s preferred course of action.

Dig in boys!

Old Soldier.
