Beachside have made four important signings for the 2011 Premier League season.
Former Somerset and South Hobart midfielder-cum-striker Ricki Eaves has signed, as have former Nelson Eastern Suburbs striker Tom Gordon, ex-Olympia striker Jamie Walker, and former University winger-cum-striker Sam Crosswell.
These four players will considerably strengthen Beachside’s goal-scoring potential.
Eaves is an experienced and skilful player and knows how to score, as does Gordon.
Walker will be a useful addition to the club, while Crosswell, younger brother of Ben Crosswell, was a very promising player with University.
Crosswell had a wonderful turn of speed, great vision and tactical awareness.
He decided to concentrate on his very promising athletic career but was somewhat hampered by injury, so it’s wonderful to see him back in football.
Beachside have a couple of friendlies coming up prior to the Summer Cup.
They will play Kingborough Lions United at Lightwood Park on Sunday, 30 January, and South Hobart at South Hobart on Saturday, 5 February.
Beachside are also pleased to announce a junior sponsorship to the value of $3,000 which will enable the club to set up new junior teams from under-10s up.
And, the club extends an invitation to all young boys and girls to attend Sandown Park on Sundays at 3pm for a fun summer kick-about.
Some of you may remember the Tasmanian Premier League Soccer Show which was shown on the Australia-wide Aurora channel about three years ago.
South Hobart are reviving the program in the same format for YouTube.
It will be a weekly show filmed by Mr Video and featuring all of South Hobart’s matches.
The show will have a couple of hosts and a guest each week to discuss the weekend matches.
