North Shore Welcome Night

The 2017 season is not far away, and it’s time to get ourselves prepared. North Shore had a great season in 2016, but to stay on top of our game we’ve got to get into pre-season training.


We’ll be starting with a Welcome Night on Tuesday 15th November, 6:30pm to 8pm in the clubhouse at Mortgage Choice Oval. All players and supporters are welcome.

If you’re thinking about playing in 2017 but haven’t made up your mind yet, you’re welcome to come along. It’s a good opportunity to meet your potential new team-mates and get a feel for the club.

Head coach Ryan Meldrum will be outlining his plans for 2017. We came a long way in 2016, and there’s high hopes we can go even better next year. But there’s a lot of work to be done to get there.


We’ve got a special guest speaker for the night. Barnaby Howarth is a name well-known in Sydney footy circles, and he has a remarkable story to tell. Suffering a stroke from which he wasn’t expected to live, he had a long road of rehab before eventually being able to play again.

Barnaby has an upcoming event, that auction site is up at:
