Since the Norrtälje Dockers were established in 2012 many hours have been put in by many people to build a club that had a vision of becoming Stockholm’s strongest on and off the field. This Saturday, in just their fifth season, the Dockers will have a chance to continue their history making season when they play against the Årsta Swans in their first ever preliminary final, with the winning team getting a shot at the SAFF title, against reigning champions the Södermalm Blues.
It was an incredible season for the Dockers, who won 7-of-8-matches throughout the year, missing out on the minor premiership to the Södermalm Blues on goal percentage. Confidence will be high in the change room heading into the semifinal after finishing the season even stronger than they started by winning all three games after the summer break, putting them on a 6 game undefeated streak rolling into finals footy.
Though it has already been a successful 2016 it has only made the Dockers hungrier for success and now have their sights set on continuing their run of good form when they take on a tough Årsta Swans, who have put in strong performances against Norrtälje this season.
Come down to Norrtälje Sportscentrum and support your local Australian Rules Football Club as they try to write history and book themselves into the SAFF Grand Final.
MATCH BEGINS SATURDAY 17TH SEPTEMBER AT 13:00! DON’T FORGET TO WEAR RED AND BLACK!!!
