Presidents message

On behalf of the Cairns Saints Football Netball Club, l would like to welcome our sponsors, supporters and players to season 2020. l have great pleasure in announcing that the Bungalow Hotel will continue as our major sponsor for season 2020 and would like to thank the Gibson family for their ongoing support.

The football department has been busy with the appointment of Wes Glass as senior coach. Wes brings to the club a wealth of experience, knowledge and professionalism and has been busy recruiting in the off season with a big focus on developing our up and coming junior players in preparing them for senior football. After making the grand final in only their second year our women's team are back into training with record numbers and are all focused on going one better this year. 

After winning 5 out of a possible 6 grand finals last season our juniors are back into training with all grades once again showing great numbers and with the inclusion of the U/18 youths girls team l'm sure we are in for another exciting year.

Last but certainly not least l would like to welcome and thank our management committee, sponsors and volunteers for season 2020.
