Sydney Scorpions Committee 2016/17

Sydney Scorpions are pleased to announce our 2016/17 committee following our Annual General Meeting over the weekend.  Our objective for the Scorpions committee is very simple – we are aiming to surround ourselves with the “best of the best” administrators from around our region.  We are confident this approach will form an extremely strong leadership team, and from this position of strength Scorpions will continue to improve and be seen as a leading permit at both state and national level.

Scorpions have acknowledged that at both Junior Regional & NTL level there is room for continual improvement.  Whilst we are extremely pleased with our Scorpions culture and abundance of success on the field, we believe with the injection of our new committee members and new initiatives we can strengthen even further over the next 12 months.

We welcome Brad Curl who has taken on our Coaching Director role.  Brad has been involved in a coaching capacity with our Junior Regional and T-League teams over the past few years and will assist us greatly in this very important role.

We have introduced a new Scorpions High Performance Unit with Stuart Geros and Vince Bateman joining the committee in official roles as our High Performance Managers.  Stuart Geros brings a wealth of touch administrative and business experience to our committee and has been working behind the scenes over the past twelve months as part of our Working Group.  Vince Bateman joins us after impressing immensely in his managerial role with the NSW Scorpions Men’s Elite 8 team.

The High Performance Unit will sit under our Technical arm, which is led by Brad Mitchell.  Brad and Anthony Dudeck will also be working closely as part of our High Performance Unit.  Some exciting new iniatives in regards to our Junior Regional and T-League programs will be released in coming weeks and months.  Additionally Michael Donaghy joins Scorpions as part of our HPU in his role as Regional Sports Scientist and we will be ensuring we utilise his skill-set as a competitive advantage for our teams.

Scorpions Junior Regional Champion Permit 2016

The Sydney Scorpions continued their dominance of the Junior Regionals claiming the converted champion region title, their 7th year in a row, with the event being held at the home of Parkes Touch Association, Cheney Park. The Scorpions claimed three of the six divisions on offer and lost two other grand finals. Whilst the Scorpions were dominant they were pushed to the limits by the ever improving Hunter Western Hornets who only dropped two games across all the divisions on the Saturday. Scorpions had their inaugural Junior Presentation dinner on the Saturday night and this event was extremely well received and it bonded the teams and parents even closely together.  Read more……

Junior Regional Preview – Boys 18’s Jesse Parker

With the 2016 NSWTA Junior Regionals now less than a week away all players will be starting to get extremely excited at making their journey to this year’s host town of Parkes. However for one player more than others this trip from Sydney to Parkes will mean so much more. Scorpions Boys 18’s Jesse Parker will be making his Scorpions debut at Parkes after representing the Parramatta Eels at this years Junior State Cup. Jesse was born and raised in Parkes where he attended Redbend Catholic College in nearby Forbes. Jesse received the Junior Sportsmen of the year two years running whilst also representing the school in athletics and captaining the school rugby league and touch teams.

“It’s most certainly a privilege to be part of the Sydney Scorpions, it’s a great touch football permit and has so much to offer. It’s also great to be playing alongside some of the boys that were part of the All Schools U/15’s team including Marley Simbolon, Luke Osborne and Ray Wehbe. These players are leaders of the team and I believe if they can take lead at Parkes we can go close to talking out the tournament” Jesse commented.  With all the success the Scorpions have had the Boys 18’s is a title that has eluded them.

Jesse was due to make his Scorpions debut at the recent TFA National Touch League in Coffs Harbour however injury prevented this. Scorps T-League coach Brad Curl was amazed at the sheer speed and x-factor quality Jesse bought the trial. “We were blown away at his attacking game and I remember the selectors all looking at each other saying what about this guy! It was a huge loss to lose Jesse for NTL but we were aware that the Junior Regionals were in his home town and we really didn’t want him to miss both tournaments through aggravating the injury further. Also what we saw in Jesse was a down to earth champion guy, so genuine and thankful for the opportunity to represent Sydney Scorpions – it was very pleasing. If the NRL don’t get him then an Elite 8 permit will”.

Jesse represented the Parkes Pumas touch club for seven years including Junior State Cup tournaments. In 2014 he shot to stardom via the NRL Footy Show where he won $20,000 via the A League of Their Own competition for an amazing individual try. Jesse moved to Sydney last year to take up an opportunity with the Parramatta Eels NRL club and he now attends Patrician Brothers College Blacktown undertaking his HSC.

Jesse added, “To have the competition in my home town of Parkes is something special as all of my family will be there. It will also be great to catch up with all of my family, as living away can get pretty hard at times but I couldn’t do it without Drew and Sonja Osborne (the parents of Travis and Luke Osborne) and my parents Terry and Dan Parker for allowing me to have this opportunity down in Sydney. I really appreciate everything everyone has done for me whilst being here and I cannot wait to run out at Parkes on the weekend”,  Jesse told us.

Good luck to the Boys 18’s and their coaching staff as well as Jesse and his family, we hope you enjoy this tournament on home turf.

Brett Gillard Medal

On behalf of Sydney Scorpions executive and general committee, players, referees, coaches, managers and all our affiliates Scorpions would like to take this opportunity to thank Brett Gillard for his tenure with Sydney Scorpions – most recently as our Regional Director from 2007 until 2015.  Deservedly Brett received his Sydney Scorpions Life Membership induction in 2011 and his strong leadership has been the foundation that has delivered our great permit so much recent glory.  It’s no co-incidence that during his reign Scorpions has experienced unprecedented success. Scorpions are pleased to announce that our Scorpions Regional Directors Award which was introduced last year, will now be known as the Brett Gillard Medal.  Congratulations on this years recipient Dave Nolan for his outstanding contribution to Sydney Scorpions.

Scorpions Elite 8 Medal – Boland Trophy

Scorpions are pleased to announce the introduction of our Boland Trophy. These are awarded to our Elite 8 Scorpions Medal male and female players. Mark Boland first became involved with Touch Football when he was just 13 years of age.  Mark played in 17 straight State Cups with his beloved Parramatta in which he won 12 titles. He represented NSW from 1985 to 1999 in Men’s Open and was captain of Sydney Scorpions Men’s Open team from 1996 – 1999.  At this time Scorpions won the first 4 NTL titles in the Men’s Open division.  He is the only player to have received a NSW Touch Association life membership whilst having his famous number eight playing shirt retired. Mark also played in four World Cup’s representing Australia between 1986-1999 – with a total of 37 appearances.  He was inducted into the Touch Football Australia Hall of Fame in 2003.  Scorpions would like to thank Mark for being at our Scorpions dinner and presenting this year’s Boland Trophies to Daniel Barton and Emma Williams.

Scorpions Junior Recognition Awards

Scorpions are delighted to announce the introduction of our Scorpions Junior Recognition Awards.  Awarded to Scorpions junior players who have excelled through our junior levels and higher representative honours including Elite 8, State and Country.  These awards, for male and female, will be presented annually at our Scorpions Junior Regionals dinner. At our recent NTL Scorpions dinner we announced that these awards will be named in honour of two of our best junior players to come through the Scorpions junior ranks with both players having gone onto represent their state and country at the highest level.

Looking at the touch CV of our male player and it’s a very impressive read.  He was selected in Scorpions junior teams from the age of 14, and at this time he was considered a fringe player.  However only a few years later he went on to represent the Australian Men’s Open at just 17. He was instrumental in Scorpions winning the Men’s Open title in 2010 and has been an important member of our teams since. In summary he has won Youth & Open Trans-Tasman titles, two World Cups, has been an Australian Flag Bearer and Captain, and won multiple NSW Player of the Year and Player of the Series awards.  It gives Scorpions great pleasure to announce that our Boys Scorpions Junior Recognition Award is to be named the Sam Brisby Medal.

Moving onto our female player and her touch CV is equally as impressive.  She made her Scorpions debut with the Girls 14’s winning that division and also making the NSWTA Merit Team.  In 2009 she scored a unique double by taking out both the Girls 18’s and Women’s Opens Scorpions Medals in the same year.  In 2011 she captained her country to victory in the Youth Trans-Tasman series. She has represented both NSW and Australia at Women’s Open level and won a World Cup with the Australian Mixed Opens.  In 2014 she was a valuable member of the NSW Scorpions Women’s Elite 8 undefeated champions.  Unfortunately injury prevented her from playing in the recent 2015 World Cup here in Coffs Harbour.  It gives Scorpions great pleasure to announce that our Girls Scorpions Junior Recognition Award is to be named the Sarah Peattie Medal.

Co-incidentally both Sam and Sarah were still recovering from injury and unable to be at our Scorpions dinner however they did prepare a message of thanks.
