It is with great sadness that Balmain AFC inform you that we lost a true club legend, Neil Briscoe this weekend.
Neil lead the club to a Premiership in 1992 as Captain & Coach. He won the L.C Lock award (Seniors Best & Fairest) after being the runner up on several occasions and also won the leading goal kickers award.
Neil’s outstanding contribution to the club was recognised when he received Life Member status in 1995.
Our condolences go to the Briscoe family.

We are excited to announce that Ian Janda will take on the role of 5th Division Coach in 2016.
Janda is a Balmain stalwart and has played with us for many years. A talented sportsman in both footy and cricket, Janda says he is looking forward to the challenge of developing the 5th Division team. His plan is to build the skills and game sense of the team that comprises of a mix of new players and yesterdays heroes. He is also keen to make the team a much more cohesive and competitive unit.
We have 2 more training sessions this year and training will resume in 2016 on Tuesdays and Thursdays from January 19 at Mahoney Oval. All new and existing players of all abilities and experience are welcome.
The last couple of Training sessions have seen great numbers at Pre-season training. We’re getting a solid turn out from old and new players which is great to see.
The Bay Run is proving to be very popular amongst the boys with fantastic harbour views!
For those that have been around Balmain for awhile, getting 30+ players to pre-season training, in November, is unheard of!
2016 is looking to be a very good year for the Tigers.
Well done Gents!
