The Animals return home to Bennettswood Reserve this week where it will be bathed in a sea of pink as ALL THREE sides will be donning the pink guernseys in support of the BCNA

This is the fourth year running of the event and it keeps getting bigger and better with lots happening off the field including a ladies luncheon, silent auction and many more fundraising activities all for a great cause

The reserves side are looking to bounce back after two narrow losses against the top two sides and are looking to regain some momentum after slipping to 4th position, albeit still with the best current percentage in the competition (164.54%)

The boys will have a lot to play for and will be looking to leapfrog Manningham who sit just above us on the ladder in 3rd  position

Cameron Gardner and Bailey Hunt make their debuts and there are many returning faces

Likewise the senior side will be looking to atone for a disappointing day out at Aquinas College and Sam Argus, Jesse Collins, Jack Hunt  and Hugh Schaeche are all welcome additions back into the senior side. Chook O’Connor comes in for his first senior game of 2019 as Big Kev is out on the sidelines

It’s a huge game for the boys not only for the occasion but also as they have the chance to jump up into 2nd spot with a win, so expect the heat to be on right from the first bounce

The 3 Davis brothers (Harry, Sam and Michael) are ones to watch as they always rise to the occasion on this day as the Davis family have been instrumental figures in making the Mothers Day game possible

All players are encouraged to come down and support the women who start the day off at 9:20AM with the Men’s Reserves and Seniors to follow in what will be a fantastic day for the club with hopefully 3 wins to celebrate

It is the highlight of the Animals Home and Away Fixture so if you’re not sure make sure to get on down to Bennettswood (Deakin University) for a great atmosphere
