CLARENCE WOMEN TO PLAY CURTAIN RAISER FOR HAWTHORN MATCH
some great news for Women's footy in Tasmania, Clarence and Launceston women's
teams will be playing the curtain-raiser to the Hawthorn vs Brisbane AFL game
at Aurora Stadium on Sunday 30th June 2013.
The Clarence men play Burnie in Burnie on Saturday 29th June, so we're hoping
some of the Clarence fans might consider making a trip of it and watching them on
the Sunday - especially if they were going to the AFL game anyway.
ABOUT THE CLARENCE FOOTBALL CLUB
Welcome to the home of the Clarence “Parmic Roos” Football Club. The Club strip is red and white and our emblem is the Kangaroo.
The Club’s origins came from the Bellerive Football Club which commenced in 1884 and following the second world war in 1944 became the Clarence Football Club. The club has a rich history and has won 24 premierships since 1884, whilst the Women have won four premierships in five years of the Competition.
Up to 1946 (before admission to TFL)
1903, 1907, 1910, 1930, 1931, 1932, 1937, 1939, 1946 (total 9)
From 1947 (since admission to TFL)
1970, 1979, 1981, 1984, 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2009, 2010 (total 15)
As well as the Club having a proud record of achievement over many years in Tasmanian football and over the years a number of players have won individual recognition wining the William Leitch Medal for the best and fairest in the Tasmanian Football League (TFL) and the State-Wide League with well known names such as Hamish Yaxley, Trevor Sorell, Stuart Spencer (twice), John Richmond, Bob Lucas, Garry Williamson, Scott Wade, Danny Noonan and Mathew Jones were all winners of the medal.

The Club has also provided many representatives for TFL, SFL and Tasmanian State Representative teams. The Club’s involvement in nurturing local talent has been the stepping stone for the VFL and later AFL recruitment of many outstanding players such as Royce Hart, Scott Adams, Gavin Cooney, Stephen Fry, Colin Alexander, Chris Riewoldt, Danny Noonan, Paul Holdsworth, Bradley Plain, David Lewis, John Chivers, Scott Sutcliffe, Michael Young, Arthur Budd, Terry Mayne, Rohan Andrews, Tom Davidson, Cameron Thurley, Justin Sherman, Sam Iles, Jarrod Garth, Heath Neville, Jack Riewoldt, Jeromey Webberly, Daniel Archer, Josh Green and Ian Callinan.
The club administration and playing facilities are located at Bellerive Oval in Derwent Street Bellerive, in southern Tasmania. Bellerive oval is a multi purpose venue with Test, One Day and Twenty Cricket played during the summer and currently AFL State League Men and Womens Football, and national under eighteen and under sixteen AFL football. From 2012 two games of AFL Football are being played at the ground for a three year period involving the North Melbourne Kangaroos.
The club is one of ten member clubs of the Tasmanian State League (TSL) which comprises two teams per club - Seniors and Colts. The colts is a hybrid competition made up of fourteen under eighteen players and ten overage players up to the age of twenty one years but with provision for players up to twenty three years on a restricted per game basis – for example a player returning from injury.
The Club also includes a women’s team which participates in the Tasmanian State League Womens competition
The Club has a separate Junior Club which provides opportunities for young boys from under eight to under sixteen to learn and play our great game.
Each club in the TSL is allocated a development Zone for which it receives a financial grant from AFL Tasmania and is responsible for Talent Identification and delivering a Development Program for the youth in their zone
Clarence Zone covers the following areas:-
The area east of the Derwent River from the Rokeby Fire Station and in a direct line north to and including Brighton, Pontville and Mangalore and south of the Bridgewater Bridge.
This zone will also include Cambridge, Campania, Richmond, Woodsdale, Colebrook and Oatlands. The line to be considered the eastern boundary will be the Rokeby Fire Station and Woodsdale.
This zone will also include the suburb commonly known as Tranmere indicated by a line south from the Rokeby Fire Station to Droughty Point.
The club is always looking for new members, volunteers, players and sponsors and if you would like further information you can either browse the menu on our website or contact the club on telephone (03) 6244 2155 or email at email@example.com
