Magpies embrace the ANZAC spirit

The Glenorchy Magpies welcomed Kingborough to KGV on ANZAC Day and although the Tigers secured a 57-point win the importance of the occasion wasn’t lost on either side.

“It’s an incredibly important day not only for our club but also for our entire country and we feel honoured to compete on an occasion like this,” Glenorchy coach Josh Arnold said.

“Our players love playing in this game and understand that it’s a real privilege to play on such an important day in our country’s history,” Kingborough coach Trent Baumeler said.

ANZAC Day was a momentous occasion on multiple fronts for Glenorchy as the Magpies welcomed back club legend and two-time Alistair Lynch medallist Jaye Bowden.

Bowden last laced up his boots for Glenorchy in 2020 and was an integral part of the Magpies’ 2015 Tasmanian State League (TSL) premiership.

“He was chomping at the bit to get back out there and we couldn’t be happier to have him back at the club,” Arnold said.

“Jaye is undoubtably one of our club’s best players and it’s great to have him around to share his experience with the rest of the group.”

Glenorchy currently sit in fifth place on the TSL ladder having secured its first senior men’s win in more than 1000 days against North Hobart in round two.
