Return of the masters

After missing out on premiership glory by four points in 2023, the Lauderdale Superjets won’t need much motivation to try and go all the way in the 2024 Southern Tasmania AFL Masters competition.

Superjets player Jarrod Morgan said the competition provided a great outlet for older players to stay connected with their teammates.

“The competition has allowed me to keep playing football long after I thought my days were done,” he said.

After five years of no footy I joined a training session and haven’t look back since.

“We’ve added some new experienced players this year which make us confident that we will be the team to beat in this season.”

2024 will be a momentous year for AFL Masters in Tasmania with the inclusion of a women’s competition and a Brighton team joining the men’s league.

“It’s great to see the league expanding this year and to finally have the women’s teams involved as well,” Mr Morgan said.

“I have no doubt the women’s competition is going to be great for the league and it’s only going to grow in coming years.”

The 2024 Southern Tasmania Women’s AFL Masters Competition, the first of its kind in the state, will be open to players over 25 with games run fortnightly alongside the already established men’s league.

The inaugural women’s competition was established following strong interest from players in North Hobart, Hobart, Lindisfarne and Sorell.
