Rd 11 we play our traditional rivals Echuca on their turf in our last game for the season. The Crays and Echuca have enjoyed a traditional friendly rivalry which goes back to 2010 when the Crays joined the Vic Country League, so we usually play the Echuca Boys a couple of times a year. This game is an overnighter and is Drews and Ditch’s 50th game for the Crays. The clash is on Saturday 26th August and that night the Emus Golden Egg draw so she’ll be a big weekend indeed. Been a great season so we’ll have to finish off with a win. Its on.

Rd 5 Results. Unfortunately we’ve had to forfeit our Rd 5 game against Moorabool Valley at Meredith on Saturday. We’ve had a bad run with injuries leading up to this game and with a couple of players heading to the Bali 9’s and players unavailable with weekend footy etc we were going to struggle as we got down to 9 definites. Anyway can’t be helped boys. Next time. Apologies to the Moorabool Valley boys and we’ll have to catch up next time. They did invite us to a team bonding session at the Meredith Pub which sounded tempting but we might have to organise a team bonding session on Saturday here somewhere.

Good Friday Charity Match. The Footy Club has played 64 games since it began back in 2010 and as one of the originals and without a doubt, I reckon Friday’s Gaelic Football Match was the most rewarding and satisfying game I’ve ever played in. Between both Club’s we raised $3500 for the Royal Children’s Hospital to help kids in need. Our most valuable commodity. The way everyone chipped in and helped not only on the day but the weeks leading up to it was awesome. A special thanks to the following People – Harry Wilhelm, Rachael Andrews, Greg Young, Wayne Schilg, Cray’s Committee and Players, Wanderer’s Players and Committee, 1494 The Critic, Border Mail, Win News, Wodonga Fire Brigade, The Umpires, Everyone who donated and Everyone who turned up to make the day a success. Great Weather and to top it off both Clubs put on a entertaining game. Final Score. Wanderer’s – 58, Cray’s – 28. Bigger and better next year. Its on.

Both sides went in hard and the result could of went either in this game with both sides missing easy shots during the game.

Good to see Jono, Horey and Kingy rock up for their first game for the year as well. Rat, Kingy and Squealer finished with 2 goals each and Grub finished with 1 major. Our backline led by Lloyd and JD were awesome as they were under constant pressure and what I noticed about this game was the hunger shown by the Cray’s to win. So bloody close. Thanks to Melton Footy Club for rocking up and whether playing them at home or away they are always hard to beat. Awards. Stump Hotel-Young Youngy, Hair Symmetrics-Teuns, Lloyd Curtis Remedial Massage-JD, Vic Rail Travel-Morro and the Cray’s Mug went to Lloyd. Rat scored the best Opposition Player six pack award.

Monday 15th June Update. Rd 5 game the Cray’s hit the road to tackle Gisborne who we’ve never beaten as yet. It was always gonna be a tough game as we copped a good old fashioned flogging. Gisborne -12.13.85 (it could’ve been a lot more as the Bulldogs sprayed a few) to the Cray’s 4.4.28 with 2 each to Rat and Danny. Gisborne lent us a few players on the day to make up the numbers as we were a bit short. Awards. Lloyd Curtis Remedial Massage – JD, Stump Hotel Meal – Grub, Vic Rail Voucher – Teun’s, Hair Symmetrics – Ditch, Cray’s Mug – Drew. Thanks to the Cray’s Players that rocked up, Cray’s Footy Club for shouting the bus and refreshments on the day, Gisborne Footy Club with supplying players, hospitality and catering, Rat with the awards and speeches, Teun’s for driving the bus home via Hanging Rock and everyone who helped out. Great day.

Saturday 13th June Update. Last Saturday a crew of Cray’s bussed it to Shepparton to play in the Lawrie Evans Memorial Game between Vic Country and Vic Metro. This year the game was played at Shepparton instead of Barooga to promote Superules in the area and hopefully Shepp might field a team next year. That would benefit the Cray’s with a couple of teams in the North East which would reduce travel etc. Vic Country were Victors over Metro on the night in perfect conditions. 11 Cray’s made the trip – Schilgy, JD, Youngy, Teuns, Richo, Grub, Ditch, Az, Johnno, Tizza and Mego made the trip with Richo bagging 2 and singles to Schilgy, Grub and Youngy. Az, Youngy, Schilgy, JD, Teuns and Richo were in the best. Great effort. Check out photo’s.

Bus departs Birra at 8.30 Sun and is free also refreshments supplied on the day plus a game of footy. Great value indeed. Yellow strip.

State of Origin night with game 1 kicking off at 7.30 is on the big screen live in the Raiders rooms with $10 meals and the bar is open. No footy this weekend as we have the bye but plenty of local footy on around the North East. The following Saturday (6th June) is the Vic Country vs Vic Metro Clash at Shepparton with possibly 2 games of 35’s and 47’s depending on numbers so if you blokes are keen to represent the big Country V get your names in to Schilgy our Carnival delegate. Next game is at Gisborne on Sunday 14th June but on the Saturday night North Melbourne play Sydney Swans so we could possibly have a double header that weekend. Its all happening at Albury Wodonga’s one and only Super Rules FC. The Murray Cray’s.

Wednesday 22nd April. Update. Football Training tonight at Martin Park (home of the Bulldogs) 6pm. Next game is Cray’s v Echuca at WSSC on Saturday 2nd May at 2pm. Albury Wodonga’s very own AFL Super Rules for over 35’s, “Murray Cray’s Football Club”.

Tuesday 21st April. Update. North Melbourne’s Jack Ziebell is the Murray Cray’s No 1 Ticket Holder in season 2015 as well as Wodonga Football Clubs No 1 Ticket Holder playing for the Bulldogs before he was drafted. Which means Jack will be eligible to play for the Cray’s under the Father Son rule as his old man Gary played for the Cray’s. Its ironic that Jack played footy for Wodonga Bulldogs and could very well finish his footy career (tongue in cheek) with Albury Wodonga’s very own AFL Super Rules Club ” The Murray Cray’s”. Go you Cray’s. Jack pictured after he was presented with the No 7 Guernsey. Thanks Jack, hope you have a blinder of a season and go Roos.

Tuesday 14th April Update. On Sunday the Club had the Bunning’s Wodonga BBQ Fundraiser. Thanks to Bunnings and all the players who rocked up to help out.

Jack signed a couple of Cray’s Jumpers and Training Singlets which will go straight to the pool room in exchange for a couple of Cray stubby holders. A fair trade indeed.

25/08/14. Top weekend boys and a great win and thanks to all that rocked up. We had about 33 all up on our annual trip to Echuca and as usual it was a tough game against Echuca with both sides giving it their all. Echuca organised 6 quarters of footy so everyone would get a decent run as both sides had an excess of players. Scores after 4th quarter was Crays 11.8.74 def Echuca 6.6.42. The following two quarters Crays kicked 6.2.38 to Echuca’s 2.6.14. Well done to Echuca veteran Neville Greene (Nifty) playing his last game for Echuca. Banner and all. Thanks to Echuca Masters for putting on a great day and a great dinner function that night. Day ran like clockwork. Both clubs raised $1720 for the James McQuillan Future Fund which was a great effort. Thanks to Notso for driving the bus and keeping things in order also doing the running and playing, Mark and Toppa organising the bus and accommodation as well as playing, Young Youngy for doing the off field Coaching helping out Moons, ditch for whatever the fuck he was doing, Az and Johnno’s brother Jamie and Rat and Richo’s brother Mark with running the water, Phil Kelly for his hospitality at the Stump with the pizzas on the house and everyone. Thats what this level of footy is all about – enjoying our great game, having a few wins on the way and a few beers and having fun.

03/06/14. Great day at Melton on Sunday coming home with the points against Wellington Warriors. It rained most of the game but the ground was in great condition. We had’nt played Wellington before so it was good to finally play them in a top spirited game.

The Warriors were a bit undermanned but they still had a crack all the same. Teuns took over the Coaching role in Moons absence and led by example on and off the field. His record as Coach now is 100% success rate with 1 game, 1 win. Lloyd was Captain and his success rate is the same with 1 game, 1 win and won the toss. Our forward line with Juddy on fire with 5 goals and 8 different goalkickers was the difference between the two teams. Wellington pretty well matched it with us in the midfield getting plenty off the ball however we had ball winners in Ando, Phil K and Rat. Our backline stood up with Berko, Lloyd and JD holding the opposition to two goals. End result a 10 goal win. Crays-12.9.81 def Warriors-2.4.16. Goals. Crays-Juddy 5, Hemmy 1, Felmo 1, Teuns 1, Junior 1, Phil 1, Rat 1, ditch 1. Warriors-Rossi 1, Brewy 1. Best. Crays-Juddy, Phil, Berko, Hemmy, Rat, Teuns. Warriors-Knight, Pirillo, Garoni, Gray, Slattery. Awards. Hair Symmetrics-Phil Kelly, Beazley Meats-Peter Summerfield, Stump Hotel-Jesse Judge, Tasco Fuel-Ditch, Lloyd Curtis remedial Massage-Bruce Hem, Shaun Bannister-Hat, Stubby Holder, adrian Williams-Mug, Opposition Player Wine Award-Brewy.

19/05/14. Results Rd 3. Cray’s went down to Echuca by 35 points at Birallee Park on Saturday night with both sides struggling for numbers. Mick Bourke at full forward and in his first game since 2011 kicked a goal in the first 30 seconds of the game. The Crays were off to a great start but unfortunately Echuca hit their straps and ran over the top of us. Easty was our only other goal kicker on the night as our goal kicking was very wayward and turning the ball over way to often. we copped a few injuries with Richo (knee), Leigh (jaw), Webby (hammy) and Phil (calf) which didnt help. Hopefully they wont miss to many games. We had a crack and didnt give up to the final siren. Final Score. Echuca. 8.6.54 def Cray’s 2.7.19. Goals.

20/03/14. The One Punch can Kill campaign has been in full swing for a few weeks now and just under a month ago Bruce “Wolf” Steenson (1.5.60 to 22.2.14) died from a coward punch incident in Mooloolaba Qld. He was heavily involved with the Queensland AFL Masters and it just shows how easy these sort of things happen. Check out commemorative footy jumpers and more info below.

Wolf

A planned program of fundraising and commemorating Wolf’s life and contribution to AFL Masters, Gary Mitchell is co-ordinating a commemorative jumper for Wolf. The OPCK logo will be added to the jumper. All the jumpers will have number 8 and are sleeveless, and come in Small (90cm), Medium (95cm), Large (100cm), XL (105cm), 2XL (110cm), 3XL (115cm) and 4XL (120cm). The cost is $75 and all proceeds will be donated to OPCK.

There is only one way to order these jumpers and that is by emailing Gary at mafq@mail.com by Sunday March 30, 2014 with your full name, Masters footy club/State (if applicable), postal address and size(s) required.

Payment can only be done electronically by depositing $75 into MAFQ, Bank of Queensland, 124060 – 91279617. Please use your full name as the reference. There will be a commemorative game later in the season, possibly Parrots Vs Wolf’s and this jumper may be needed to get a game. The QLD President will also buy a beer to anyone at the Adelaide carnival who buys one of these jumpers. Please email Gary if you have any queries. Thank you for your support of this worthy and relevant cause. One Punch Can Kill Campaign

24/02/14. The Crays Lightning Premiership Mini Carnival on Saturday 22nd Feb at Wodonga Senior Secondary School was a huge day. Perfect weather, the ground in top nick, plenty of food and refreshments and to top it off 5 games of action packed footy. Echuca Eagles, Murray Crays, Geelong/Wagga and Presidents competed for the Inaugural Premiership Cup and bragging rights for the next 12 months. The Presidents were victorious on the day defeating the Cray’s in the final. Their is a healthy rivalry between these two teams now so it will be a cracker when the Cray’s and Presidents match up again at next year’s Carnival.

Tim played footy for Federal’s in the Upper Murray League years ago before switching to Bethanga in the mid nineties in the TDFL then went on to Coach and play at Burrumbuttock in the Hume League for 3 years. Out of respect for Tim and the Flower Families the club requests all players wear black armbands at the Carnival on Saturday (22nd  Feb). R.I.P Tim.
