Tannum Sands Seagulls looking forward to positive season

A TOUGH 2013 season behind them, Tannum Sands Seagulls are hoping to leave a horrid record behind - forgetting it ever happened.

Not lingering on the issue, the club this season has an injection of new blood, with last year's squad also keen to return to the winners circle.

Starting the year with a trial match tonight against a Bundaberg side, Tannum Sands will see how the latest outfit will hold up.

"It is hard to get up and dust yourself off after a season like that," long running member of the club Bill Potts said.

"We still have the bones of that side, so it will be interesting."

With support from the community and good groundwork in place after lots of hard work during the off season, Tannum Sands are confident, despite last year's history.

Potts is happy with the way the squad hung in toward the end of 2013.

He believes a boost will come out of this weekend's games, and the news sponsors have backed the club.

"We have a major sponsor in LJ Hooker from Boyne Island. They have always been on board," he said.

"We have a pretty big day planned. Gates open at 3pm."

Games begin at 4pm, with a reserve grade game at 5.15pm and the main game at 6.30pm, all at Dennis Park.
