The Ringwood Spiders, based at Jubilee Park, is a football club for people with disabilities and is part of the fourteen member Football Integration Development Association league.

Tonight’s dinner provided an off-season social activity and motivational event for the players and supporters of the club. Speakers included Clinton Young and Grant Birchall, two players from the Hawthorn Football Club, who also generously provided the Spiders with a chance to see the Premiership Cup.

A Victoria Police Community Liaison Officer also spoke during the evening to discuss personal safety and the role of the Police within our community. The Ringwood Spiders thoroughly enjoyed the evening and appear eager to begin pre-season training for their season next year.

With a number of off-season events and a commitment to fostering the development of players, the Ringwood Spiders will prove to be a formidable team in 2009.
