Jamie Groutch 150 games

Congratulations to Jamie GROUTCH who will play his 150th senior game for Mount Barker at ABLE Storage Oval this Saturday against Lobethal.

Mt Barker V Lobethal Tigers this Saturday at ABLE Storage Oval. Minis commence at 8:45 a.m., Junior colts at 9:55 a.m., Senior Colts at 11:10 a.m., Reserves at 12:50 p.m. and and A Grade at 2:30 p.m.

Hungry Lions not so Pleasant

One of the Roos better players, Ethan “Ringer” Bell looks to drive the ball forward as Roos skipper Jarred Chaplin offers some protection. A poor opening half at Mount Pleasant saw the Roos trail by 38 points and ultimately go down to the Torrens Valley Lions by 26 points at the final siren. The Roos must at the very least defeat the improving Lobethal Tigers this Saturday at ABLE Storage Oval to keep their place in the top 5.

Willy gets “Roasted”


Malcolm Williams was the star attraction at the Mt Barker-Hahndorf golf club on Saturday evening. A long serving servant of the Mt Barker football club as player, coach and President he was honoured with a celebrity type “Roast”. Malcolm, 3rd from left is pictured here with Andrew Pfitzner, Steve Geyer, Andrew Bruce, Steve Moore and Simon Nunan.

Many Thanks to all those who attended and participated. A very big Thank You to Maree & David Pomery, Graham Hughes and Gary Leverington for all their hard work in making this event a success.

Roos “Bounce” Back

The Barkeroos “Bounced” back into the top 5 with a clinical win over the visiting Echunga Demons at ABLE Storage Oval on Saturday. The final score 10.9 (69) to the visitors 1.10 (16). Pictured here are a very determined looking James Hughes (left) and Ben Pomery (Right) double teaming Echunga Captain and former Crows SANFL Captain Luke “Duck” Carey. The Roos now have a bye and then face Torrens Valley at Mt Pleasant in a fortnight. More Roos action images from all grades to follow early this week. Stay tuned.

Roos and Umpires “Stumble” at Heathfield


For the latest Senior (A grade + B grade and Senior Colts), action pics from Round 13 at Heathfield, click on the SENIORS and JUNIORS links above.


Simon Nunan lays a tackle on Mt Lofty stalwart Mark “Buckets” Neilsen. Sam Scott and Mitch Murphy (rear) looks on as central umpire Trevor MacDonald is set to tumble. The Roos lost the match at Heathfield oval, 8.10 (58) to the home side 9.10 (64). With this weeks’ opponent the visiting Echunga defeating Onkas, the Roos have tumbled to 6th on the ladder and Echunga go to 5th.  It’ll be all on the line this Saturday at ABLE Storage Oval.


Going, Going………


……..Gone………… Central Ump Trevor MacDonald “Heads” or “Tails”. Simon Nunan and Mt Lofty’s Neilsen can’t decide either.
