Local club’s major milestone

The Claremont Football Club celebrated its 100 year anniversary in March with a large community gathering at Abbotsfield park, welcoming players, officials, family and fans from both its junior affiliate and associated cricket club.

More than 450 attendees enjoyed the food, activities and live music during the event which also served as a launching point for the upcoming season.

This year the Claremont Junior Football Club welcomed a record number of new players with a 1700 per cent increase in player registrations.

This marked the second highest increase in player numbers for any football club, both junior and senior, in Tasmania.

The Claremont senior men’s side begin their 2024 Southern Football League (SFL) campaign against Sorell at Abbotsfield park on Saturday 6 April.

The women’s SFLW division 2 side will welcome St Virgils to Abbotsfield Park for a Friday night clash on 12 April.

The junior sides matches in the Southern Tasmanian Junior Football League (STJFL) are already underway.

The Claremont Football Club, Claremont Cricket Club and Claremont Junior Football Club thanked all the sponsors and organisers involved in the 100 year anniversary celebrations.
