Jindalee Jags Field Senior Men Team after Three Decades

Senior men’s team plays at home for the first time in three decades on April 28.

After three decades, the Jindalee Jaguars once again has its own senior men’s team competing for a premiership cup.

It was back in 1986 when the Jags last had a stand-alone senior men’s team. This 2017 season, they will be competing again for a premiership cup in the Amateur B competition.

On Friday, April 28, they will play at home at the Jindalee Recreational Reserve to host Griffith Moorooka for the second round of the competition.

Forming the Team

Late last year, the Jags announced that the AFL Queensland had granted Jindalee a senior men’s licence, allowing the Jags to compete for a senior men’s premiership.

The men’s team is now playing in the QFA Division 5 competition and will go up against Collingwood Park, Ferry Grove, Coorparoo, Ipswich Cats, Mayne, Griffith Moorooka and Yeronga South Brisbane.

The Jindalee Jags Senior Men have been preparing since late last year. They hope to do well in the competition even though the players have not played together previously.

The senior men’s team will also be a good choice for Jindalee youth players who have aged out of the junior team or those who do not wish to play for another senior club. There may also be former Jindalee junior players who have played elsewhere but wish to come back to Jindalee.

Club president Corey Sells is excited about the formation of the new team as this means that Jindalee now has male and female teams for all age groups. He hopes the community will come and show their support for the new team.

Division 5 games are scheduled on Friday nights. Management hopes to turn the Friday night games at Jindalee a family event.

To encourage people to come and support the team, the canteen will be open during the games and there will be a lively atmosphere for supporters.

The team is being managed by Mike Jackson. Paul Manning sits as head coach, assisted by Daniel Holdsworth.
