The Eagles senior men have been training hard this off season and have generated a lot of excitement around the club with plenty of new signings and new players.

The team is fresh from a win over the Tuggeranong Hawks 62-40 in a trial match at the Narrandera sportsground on the weekend.

The Eagles are hoping for a home ground advantage against the GGGM Lions in the season opener on Saturday.

“Success and wins are on the horizon for us and we are very excited to take on the season 2021,” coach Jordan Hedington said.

“Eagles are looking to play a positive and attacking brand of footy this season with a bunch of new recruits joining the squad,” he said.

“Angus Durnan, Rob Touhey and Fergus Inglis have added plenty of strike power up forward and Luke McKay down on the half back flank has added a lot of class and elite ball use coming out of defence.

“It has also been great to see the influx of new faces to the club due to how good Narrandera has recovered from COVID.

“The Narrandera Eagles are looking to put a real stamp on the season and we hope to see many patrons attending both home and away games.

“After the great success of the Junior clinic and last trial game, there is a great feeling around the club.”

“We can’t wait for round one against Ganmain at the sports ground on April 17.”

The Eagles netballers are also looking forward to the 2021 season ahead.

 “Despite losing some key players, the girls have been working hard in the off season and are looking prepared,” senior netball coordinator Suz Litchfield said.
