South Hobart goal keeper Kane Pierce has re-signed for another season at the club and the club couldn't be more delighted.
Kane who has been chased by a big mainland club has committed his future to South again for 2015. He became first choice goal keeper at the start of the 2014 season. He is a brilliant shot stopper, a keeper who commanded his area and dominated players in front of him and was instrumental to South's success.
South Hobart Football Club is delighted to announce that Captain Hugh Ludford has committed to play for us again in the 2015 season. The Captain has had a remarkable time at South and we are looking forward to having Hugh's leadership on the field again next season.
On Tuesday night a young South Hobart team will be playing the NTC in the first of three practice matches.
The match has a 6.45pm KO at KGV football park. The matches are designed to support the NTC in their preparation for the upcoming NTC challenge in Canberra.
Pre season training commences on Thursday 27th November for Victory League and Victory Development League. Please report for a 6.15pm start at Cornelian Bay. Training continues Tuesday and Thursday thereafter.
All players are welcome.

Our U13 and 14 teams next year will continue to have a development focus with experienced and (youthful) coaches now taking on coaching roles. The three coaches will act as a team and under the guidance of our Head Coach Ken Morton. These coaches have all been heavily involved with junior and youth coaching and understand the needs of our younger players. As a Club we are excited to have them on board. We know many parents and players will be pleased too.
