PRIDE OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA: South East Crows Support Group members Darby Monroe and Marg and Jim White enjoy meeting Adelaide Crows football player Jake Kelly at the club’s annual dinner recently held earlier this month.

A PAIR of football fanatics have swooped in on what the South East Crows Supporters Group have on offer, with two new community members joining the executive team.

The group held its annual general meeting on Monday night, recruiting Trevor Twilley and Chris McDonnell as the latest committee members.

With 18 people in attendance, president Trevor Roberts hoped the new faces would introduce new ideas and feedback to help improve what the group had on offer.

“They have not had the chance yet to have a say and introduce their own ideas,” he said.

“They could come out with new ideas which we might not have thought about which would be great.

“It is what we need, but we still need some more members.”

Mr Roberts said some of the eight-member executive team juggled multiple roles.

“We still do not have a full committee together and there are positions which have not been filled,” Mr Roberts said.

“We have some members filling multiple positions and we are looking for at least three or four others.

“Hopefully this will take and balance some of the workload from others.”

Mr Roberts said plans for the next season were also discussed at the meeting.

“There is a big focus now on what we can do, offer and improve on for the bigger things for next year,” he said.

“We want to increase our membership if we can.

“We know there are a lot of crows supporters in town and we would like to improve the whole club.”

Mr Roberts believed the club was beneficial for the town, but he often read feedback which conflicted his beliefs.

“I would not have thought would join the group in anyway, shape or form if they did not support the Adelaide Crows,” he said.

“We often receive a bit of feedback, but it gets people talking which is a good thing.”

Mr Roberts said the club was also looking for sponsorship.
