LOCK RISE FROM THE DUST by Duane Sholson-Schultz….Friday July 13, 2007
Before Round Six you could be forgiven for thinking that Lock was down and out, and that they would struggle for the rest of the year. Well that was of course before they found some much needed form to be sitting fourth, one game from the second placed Cougars, and registering four wins from their past five games.
Lock’s confidence boosting 36-point win over the Cougars last week has meant they now have a place in the finals in their sights.
Their only loss has been to the high flying Premiership favourites Tumby Bay, who gave them a football lesson and appear to all the local football lovers as unbeatable, due to their successful recruiting and enormous depth. Chris Prime has kicked 10, 18, 14 & 12 majors in his last four games to give him a total of 95 for the season, the highest total in any country league across the state. If someone does not figure out how to beat the Blues soon, they will march on their merry way to a comfortable grand final flag win.
So what has changed for Lock in recent weeks that have allowed them to pick themselves up off the bottom of the table to now be in the race for a flag if Tumby Bay tumbles in future weeks? They have the same personnel; however some tweaking of their team structure after some unlucky loses in earlier rounds have meant that the team has ‘gelled’ together.
According to President Ian Burrows the new team structure allowing some boys to play in their natural positions has allowed the ball to ‘flow well’. With the likes of Luke Northcott, a 16-year-old half-forward type player who has come through Lock’s juniors, standing up for them in the forward 50 has added to the ‘good mix’ of youth and experience the team has at the present moment.
However admittedly Lock lack depth in the B-grade and will struggle if players look to shift at the end of season.
But a finals birth could eliminate that fear with the club president declaring the boys will ‘cause a bit of a headache’ for teams if they reach the finals. Old heads such as Craig Wheare are standing tall which are aiding Lock’s latest resurgence.
In stark contrast to Lock’s recent fortunes, Eyre United has crashed to a seventh successive loss, the latest being to United Yeelanna by 7 points. It doesn’t get any easier for the team with their round 11 game coming up against Tumby Bay coming at a bad time for the club. The Blues will blow Eyre United out of the water if the boys from Eyre are even a little bit off their game. Maybe they should double, or even triple team Chris Prime!
No-one from Eyre United was available for comment so it is unknown what the cause of this down turn in form is attributed to. They now sit bottom after a strong start to the season and must win their next few games otherwise they fear falling out of touch with the rest of the league. However, the competition seems relatively close apart from Tumby Bay’s dominance and it will be a ‘tight, interesting finish” Lock President Ian Borrows said.

Lock win at last by Duane Sholson-Schultz….Tuesday June 5, 2007
After losing its first five games of the season, Lock has delivered with confidence boosting 71 point win over United Yeelanna.
It was relatively close at the main break with only 24 points in it, but Lock came out in the second half and slammed on eight unanswered goals to ensure their first victory of the season.
United Yeelanna could only manage one solitary point for the quarter and trailed all day.
Glover kicked eight goals with Wheare and Pearce best a field for Lock.
However, Tumby Bay continues its dominance of the Great Flinders Football League with a rampaging win over Eyre United. The Blues cruised to an emphatic 101-point win at their home ground at the weekend.
The hard, in-and under C. Curtis continues to stamp his authority on the league, whilst solid performer B. Coad continues his stellar 2007 form in the strong Tumby Bay outfit.
The Blues now sit on top of the table with six wins and a three game gap separating them from the Cougars who jumped ahead of reigning premiers Ramblers with a 13-point victory.
Last year’s premiers the Ramblers have dropped four winnable games to be reeling in fifth position with just two-wins.
But the season is a marathon not a sprint referring to the overused expression in the footy world, the boys can still deliver their seventh Grand Final in a row.
Especially if Richardson can continue his great form in the 50 metre-arch.
They sit fifth, despite a very good percentage that will help them in the following matches.
Eyre United was aided with Lock’s big win, keeping them second, however they must continue to win as only their percentage is keeping them above the Cougars and United Yeelanna.

CAN RAMBLERS WIN SIX IN A ROW?
By Julia Prosperi-Porta
April 3, 2007
The Ramblers will be fighting for their sixth premiership in a row, after losing nine players this year from last season’s premiership team.
Over the last five years, the club has maintained a strong line-up that contributed to their victory. However, A Grade coach Paul Boxer, believes the team will be “back in the pack a bit”, this year.
Darren Rule, who kicked about 100 goals last season is departing and George Pedlar, Joel Fitzgerald and a few other players have transferred to Adelaide.
“I think it will be a challenge for us, losing all these players,” said Boxer.
Last year, the challenge for Boxer as the new coach was to keep the squad motivated, after winning the premiership four years in a row. However, Boxer’s fresh ideas helped inspire the players and they “responded very well”, with only two losses for the season.
Boxer’s main concern this year is losing quality players, but he expects to rebuild. “We’ve got a lot of players who are looking forward to the challenge. Now we realise we’re going to have to step up a lot further, going for number six,” he said.
The B Grade will be looking to get back on track, after losing the grand final by a few points last season, breaking their five year winning streak.
“Ramblers are a very proud club, always looking to be around the mark,” said Boxer.
Numbers are a worry, especially recruiting into country areas which tend to be less popular. The club has picked up one player from Cleve and is hoping to pick up a few more before the season begins.
New players entering the squad this year who have not yet experienced premiership triumph may bring a surge of enthusiasm and more success for the club.
