It was a great year for the Magic in 2014. 2 teams, 2 Grand Finals and 1 Premiership Flag capped off a great year for both on and off the field. This year, there were many achievements to celebrate and none more so than another Premiership Flag in Division Five. The Blacktown Magic AFC Presentation day was held last Sunday at the Ettamogah Hotel and it was a relaxed afternoon celebrating the achievements of the club over the last 12 months.

 

In the short history of the Magic, we have achieved the following:

– 4 out of a possible 5 Grand Finals (2012 Div 3, 2013 Div 3, 2014 Div 2 & 2014 Div 5)

– 2 Premiership flags (2013 Div 3, 2014 Div 5)

– 1 Minor Premiership (2013 Div 3)

– 3 Sydney AFL Divisional Best and Fairest Runner Ups (2012 Div 3, 2014 Div 2 & 2014 Div 5)

– 2 Sydney AFL Divisional Leading Goal Kickers (2013 Div 3 & 2014 Div 2)

– Sydney AFL Leading Goal Kicker (2013)

The Division Five team took out the flag in a very much dominate performance against Penrith Rams in their maiden Grand Final appearance and the club recognised this achievement by presenting all the squad members with a personalised Premiership Guernsey as a memento for their achievement. The club paid special mention to all the volunteers and committee for their valued contribution to the club throughout the year.

President John Clifford reiterated the special community and family based culture we all have at the club and that it is an exciting period for all involved, with the Magic looking to expand with U/19’s, Women’s and possibly a third Men’s team in 2015.

Special mentions must go to Kent Weir, who made it back to back Best and Fairest’s awards with another stellar year in the midfield in Division Two and first Year player Scott Coombes, who took out the double for Reserve Grade, with the Best and Fairest and Players Player awards going his way.  Ash Moeller also took out the club’s Leading Goal Kicking award for the second year running as well.
