2003 Season


In 2003 the club officially changed the name to “The Peninsula Raiders Superules FC Inc.” The jumpers were also updated with a stylised “Viking” holding a shield and sword depicted on the front of the jumper and the colours changed to royal blue, white and gold. The shorts were updated to royal blue with the name Raiders on the leg piping in gold. The socks became royal blue with gold tops. Brendan Anderson was President, Rick Hubbard, VP & Phil Williams, Treasurer. Alexandra Park in Mornington was being resurfaced this season so we had to play our home games at Dallas Brooks Park. Graeme O’Sullivan again coached the Supers with Troy Arnott as captain. Ash Ackehurst captained/coached the Masters side. The Supers again struggled in Div1 recording only 2 wins for the season to finish 7th out of 9. The Masters had 1 win and finished 10th & last on the unofficial ladder. Troy Arnott won the MAF Division 1 Superules O/35 Best & Fairest. He also won the National Carnival O/35 Best & Fairest in Perth. Andy Evans was the first player to kick 50 club goals in rd 8.
