Last outing on Slade for Redbacks

SINCE 1996, Slade Park has been the home of the local Aussie Rules club.

This Saturday will see the Reddies run on to the paddock at Slade for its last home and away game on the ground.

The new ground located at the northern end of Jackie Howe Dve will be a much larger playing surface and eventually all facilities for the club and supporters will be as good if not better than any other ground in the AFL Darling Downs.

As much as the Redbacks will be pleased to have their new ground, so will all opposition clubs, as Slade has become a fortress unto itself for the Reddies.

The smaller picture speaks for itself in that they have suffered just two defeats in the last 16 outings at home.

The larger picture would be, percentage wise, just as impressive.

The Redbacks invite all AFL supporters to come along and watch the junior Reddies from 8.30am right through until 2.30pm when the seniors will run on in an all important game against final contenders Highfields.

Have a great day at the football and send the club off with a day full of victories.

Souths Toowoomba Bombers and Toowoomba Tigers lead the competition, one win ahead of third-placed Redbacks. The Redbacks finish the home and away season with games against Highfields, Dalby and University.
