Swans and Gaels Celebrate 2014

Posted by Vietnam Swans on December 19, 2014

The Vietnam Swans have closed out a massive year with Presentation Dinners in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, announcing a new leadership group to take the club forward in 2015.

On Saturday 6 December a fantastic turnout of around 60 players, supporters and families of the Vietnam Swans and Ladies Saigon Gaels gathered at Al Fresco’s restaurant at Thao Dien, HCMC, enjoying the fantastic spit roast and first class hospitality provided by the club’s long-term supporter.

The 2014 Ladies Saigon Gaels

Significantly, this was the first ever Presentation Dinner held jointly with the Gaels, ending a successful first years partnership between the two clubs and further reinforcing the Swannies claim to the most inclusive footy club in Asia. The Gaels were simply outstanding in their first year on the park, bringing home silverware at the Asian Gaelic Games in Malaysia and the South Asian Gaelic Games in Hanoi. Most Valuable Gael (with several impressive performances with the Swans also to her name) was Penny Wilmott, winning the Gaels vote count just ahead of Runner-up Siobhan Synnott. Kelli Trinidad was awarded the Gaels Clubman of the Year and Juliet Schneeman the Most Improved.

For the Swans, hard working club stalwart and Saigon cheesecake baron Nathan Milner (check out his amazing work at ) finished the night with the most bling, winning the the Luke Creamer Best and Fairest vote count and then confirming his highly respected standing amongst the playing group by backing it up with the Rick Trewavas medal (as voted by the players).

James Bairstow also impressed throughout the year with his attack on the ball, particularly in the big ANZAC Day and Asian Champs games and was a worthy recipient of the Runners Up BnF.

Most Improved Swannie Tuan Nhan with Coach Glendinning and Captain Crang

No one has been working harder on their game in 2014 than every Swan’s favorite Vietnamese American Tuan Nhan, with Coach Glendinning and Captain Billy Crang having no trouble in rewarding his efforts on and off the track by naming him their Most Improved Player. Tuan will no doubt be an important player going forward for the Swans and the new IndoChina Bulldogs team, with an impressive showing in their first ever game at the IndoChina Cup.

The last award of the night was an emotional one; the new Nick Shiells award being presented by outgoing President Josh Lee. Following Nicko’s death earlier in the year, it was agreed amongst Swans committee and Nicko’s family that a new medal be struck in his name. The criteria being:

“To be awarded to the clubman who, throughout the year, was seen to further the entire club more than any other while promoting its values and ethos. This could have been done either on or off the field or by a combination of both with no weighting provided to either area. The award will be selected by the national president and received only once a year.”

Buddy Duong presenting Andy Marr with the inagural Nick Shiells Award

Selected by Josh and presented by Nick’s partner Buddy, a very chuffed Andy Marr was awarded the inaugural Nick Shiells Award in recognition of the efforts he has put in for the Swans on and off the park throughout the year. Andy was a driving force behind the ANZAC Day and Grand Final Parties, the establishment of the IndoChina Bulldogs team and rarely missed a training session let alone a tour all year. His positive can-do attitude and love for the Swans making him a very worthy recipient, and his on-tour dancing is second to none.

Hanoi Presentation Dinner

The following Tuesday in Hanoi, a modest but talented group of Hanoian Swans, with a smattering of Viet Celts, also got together at The Republic to relive a few moments from the year. Small forward goal sneak and high mark specialist David Skowronski was named the Best and Fairest Hanoian, finishing the highest in the National Vote Count.

The other Hanoi award was the Hanoi President Dan Hopkin’s Clubman of the Year, with Joe Vile receiving the honors. Joe was another consistent contributor up forward throughout the year for the Swans, with his infectious enthusiasm at Xuan La training sessions and ability to bring a few heads along to make up numbers being a great asset to the boys up north.

Hanoi Swans Presentation night

The night finished with a symbolic ‘hand over’ presentation of the original Hanoi vs Saigon Anzac Friendship trophy, currently held by Hanoi, by Dan to incoming National President Grant Keys. While stepping down from the President’s chair, ‘Crazy’ Dan will be “focusing on his footy” in 2015, with all of Vietnam looking forward to seeing the hard hitting backman back on the field. Dan has been the driving force of Hanoi footy over recent years, with the huge annual Grand Final party at the Hanoi Intercontinental a great legacy of his. We thank him greatly for his contributions as Hanoi President.

AGM

Preceding the National Awards Dinner in Ho Chi Minh City was the Swans Annual General Meeting, where positions on the new Swans Leadership Group were confirmed. Thank you and congratulations to the following people who will be taking up the following roles:

National President – Grant Keys

Football Operations – Tim Clements

Finance and Governance – Rowan Luke

Sponsorships and Tours – Andy Marr

Events and Marketing (& Gaels representative) – Mairead (Maz) Scanlon

It is intended that each of the positions will be supported by more flexible “Key Position Players” or committees appointed throughout the year or as required. An overview of the agreed new structure for the club can be found . The new leadership group very much welcomes approaches from anyone that would like to get involved in any particular area club activities.

Outgoing National President Josh Lee handing over to Grant Keys. Thank you Josh and good luck with your new adventures!

2014 had been a great year for the Swans and the Gaels, with the Swans really cementing themselves as a powerhouse in Asian footy, while the Gaels have developed in to a serious and accomplished club in only 12 months. We are very excited about what is to come in 2015, and are looking forward to seeing you all back on the field!

4 Weeks yesterday – the 3rd Annual ANZAC Friendship Match, 21 April, Vung Tau

Posted by Vietnam Swans on March 25, 2012

What should we name the medal for the best and most courageous player in the ANZAC Friendship Match? Email [email protected] with your suggestion.

National President, Phil Johns, says there’s just 4 weeks to go before the ANZAC Friendship Match. And there’s lots more going on as well.

Dear Swannies, Sponsors and Supporters

  • 4 Weeks from yesterday – the 3rd Annual ANZAC Friendship Match, 21 April, Vung Tau
  • Help!! Naming of Medal at ANZAC Friendship Match
  • Next Weekend: Local Derby, Hanoi
  • Last Weekend – Swing to Swim Charity Golf Day raises $8,200
  • Last Weekend – Big crowd at Combined Irish/Aussie Rules football match, Saigon
  • A few days earlier – Battle of the Codes in Hanoi raised $1,000
  • Farewell to Cathie Meinrath’s father.
  • 2012 Indochina Cup confirmed for Hanoi
  • Final Thought

4 Weeks from yesterday – the 3rd Annual ANZAC Friendship Match, 21 April, Vung Tau

The countdown clock is on for the Swannies’ single biggest day of the year: the Annual ANZAC Friendship Match in Vung Tau which will be held on Saturday, 21 April.

Four weeks today, we will be at the Vung Tau Dog Track to play the China Reds in front of a crowd of up to 1,000 people, including veterans – some of whom played on the same oval during the war.

This is the event that will give all who participate a lifetime memory.

In a cluttered world, that is a big statement to make. But this is the 2012 ANZAC Friendship Match, Vung Tau, Vietnam.

Promotional posters will appear everywhere during the coming week. Bookings ($40) for the after match dinner on the rooftop of the Worldwide Arms Museum in Vung Tau can now be made. If you would like to be a volunteer during the day, please advise! Latest information will be published at vietnamswans.com/anzac-2012/

Help!! Naming of Medal at ANZAC Friendship Match

We currently present an unnamed medal to the best and most courageous player on the day. We need a name for that medal which will stand the test of time. It needs to resonate with a wide audience and not exclude any parties. The platform of the ANZAC Friendship Match is too important to offer something that is only “vanilla” and neutral. The medal needs to be strong and stand for something. It needs to lead. The prestige of this annual medal will continue to grow as the years pass by.

If you have any suggestions, I would very gratefully receive them. !

Next Weekend: Local Derby, Hanoi

Next weekend, a number of players from Saigon will travel to Hanoi for a local derby in the lead up to the ANZAC Friendship Match. Multiple cities; one Club.

Last Weekend – Swing to Swim Charity Golf Day raises $8,200

Last weekend, the 2nd Annual Swing to Swim Charity Golf Day was held at Montgomeire Links, Danang. Compared with last year, the number of golfers doubled to 110 which was a great result. The increase in numbers was due to a reduction in the registration fee and the increased exposure. Unfortunately, not as many people attended the dinner in the evening which is when the raffle and auction were held. Nevertheless, despite the reduced registration fees and numbers at the auction, a fantastic USD8,200 was raised to support the great work being done by Swim Vietnam and Swim Safe (Royal Life Saving Society of Australia) Danang. That money raised will translate into lives saved in the water which is extremely gratifying.

During the week, Montgomerie Link’s General Director, Jon Tomlinson, confirmed that next year, the 3rd Annual Swing to Swim Charity Golf Day will be held on 23 March 2013.

Promisingly, a number of schools in Danang, Saigon and Hanoi have pledged to run swimming programs in the same week as Swing to Swim so that we continue to raise awareness during a “Water Safety Week”.

Thank you to all our very generous sponsors who supported this year’s Swing to Swim as well as the people who played in the tournament and joined the dinner. Bring on next year!

Last Weekend – Big crowd at Combined Irish/Aussie Rules football match, Saigon

Last weekend, there were 50 players and 200 spectators at RMIT in Saigon for a combined Aussie Rules/Irish football match. There were alternating quarters of each code. The teams were mixed to ensure a great contest.

It was a hugely successful day and in the process, $450 was raised for the Loreto Foundation.

A few days earlier – Battle of the Codes in Hanoi raised $1,000

The winning Skowronski's Sausages team.

On 15 March, the sporting codes in Hanoi, including the Swannies, combined to host the 2nd Annual Battle of the Codes Trivia night for charity. The show was won by Skowronski’s Sausages (btw, Skowronski is a Swannie).

During the evening, $1,000 was raised which will be split evenly between Swim Vietnam and Little Tigers Orphanage. A great result and well done by all.

Farewell to Cathie Meinrath’s father.

The Vietnam Swans were greatly saddened to learn of the sudden death of Cathie Meinrath’s father during the week. Our thoughts are with Cathie, her family and friends during this difficult time. Cathie, who now lives back in Australia, has been a great supporter of the Swannies while she was working for the Commonwealth Bank over here. Cathie often attended our matches (home and away) and generously volunteered at our various functions.

As a mark of respect, the Vietnam Swans shall also wear our black armbands at the ANZAC Friendship Match in memory of Cathie’s father.

2012 Indochina Cup confirmed for Hanoi

Confucius reflects on the Swannies.

A week ago, Hanoi President, Dan Hopkins confirmed that Hanoi had secured a venue next to the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi, to host this year’s Indochina Cup. So, it’s official. The Vietnam Swans will host the 2012 Indochina Cup in Hanoi on 17 November.

It is expected that the Vietnam Swans will host the Club’s Best and Fairest the following day on Sunday 18 November.

Final Thought

Confucius once say, “He who honk, love Swannie”.

Go you Swannies!

Swannies’ ANZAC Boot Camp becomes part of annual calendar

Posted by Vietnam Swans on February 12, 2012

Some exhausted boys come out of the surf on the first day of the 2012 ANZAC Boot Camp. See Swannies' web album for more photos.

Tired, stiff, sore – and satisfied – are how the Swannies in Saigon and Vung Tau are feeling after the ANZAC Boot Camp in Vung Tau this weekend.

Day 1, Saturday, started with some push ups, sit ups, lunges and a few other things on the beach before we tackled the 1,000 steps up to the statue of Mary. Back down the stairs for a 7.6km run to Jesus where we faced another 900 stairs.

After a magnificent lunch at Timmay’s and Asha’s pad, we then took on the Beach Olympics in the soft sand. Just perfect for those of us recovering with very tired muscles from the morning session. Last exercise of the day was to send the exhausted Swannies into the surf…

In the evening, it was off to the Worldwide Arms Museum – new sponsor of the Swannies which also has Tommy’s Armoury on the rooftop – for dinner. Amazing venue. There, it was announced that the rooftop will be the venue for the Official After Match Function for the ANZAC Friendship Match on 21 April 2012. More to follow.

Day 1. The Swannies climb mountains to reach Mary.

This morning, we did the Beep Test session – won by Dave O’Shea. Then it was back to the beach for another session of sit up, lunges etc with bags of sand. Ouch! Then the fines session at Tommy’s Bar and Restaurant.

Special thanks to our excellent facilitator, Matt Natalotto; Timmay and Asha for housing so many of the Swannies; Meg and Sam Stevens for sorting out a lot of the logistics; Shag foe being the fines master and Kev Hornblower for dreaming up the idea at the Swannies’ best & fairest last year. Also, Bob Taylor from the Worldwide Arms Museum (who was an apology on the night) and Glenn & Trang Nolan from for their superb hospitality.

It was a mega weekend which is now locked into the Swannies’ Calendar as an annual event.

Plenty of tired and exhausted bodies in Vung Tau and Saigon tonight… More to follow.

Participants

Ross Munn, Damo Judd, Sam Conroy, Kev Hornblower, Bill Crang, Alex Polson, Shannon Leahy, Paul Koch, Phil Johns, Dave O’Shea, Tim Clements & Asha Phillips, John MacFarlane, Luke Creamer, Ryan Evans, Matt Natalotto, Richard Quinn, Meg & Sam Stevens.

Posted by Vietnam Swans on December 15, 2011

The Hanoi President, Dan Hopkins, last weekend in Hanoi.

Dan Hopkins, Hanoi President wraps up last weekend’s hugely successful Awards and Presentations night. The man who also won the award for Outstanding National Contribution also congratulates winners of other awards.

Hi all! Thanks to all who joined us last Saturday night at JASPAS for Hanoi’s 2011 Presentation Night.
The night was a huge success and fun was had by all. The night started off with some initial presentations
to sponsors and a run down of the charity work the Swans have managed to accomplish this year.
Then on to the good stuff with a match by match summery and overall votes for the games and tours.

Throughout the count there were some awards given including:

  • Hanoi Clubman Award: Dave Diviny, for all his hard work throughout the year.
  • Coach’s Award: Dan Lucardie for his work ethic and positive attitude anytime he hits the track.

Congratulations Boys!

Then we kicked on with the count going through the Asian Champs (semi-finalists) and Indochina Cup (winners).

After all the votes were counted, the winner of Hanoi’s Best and Fairest was pretty obvious.

Hanoi’s 2011 Best and Fairest –  Congratulations Dave ‘SOS’ Skowronski!

We also said farewell to Hao Stew and Dan K. These boys have been a massive part of the Swans this year and further back. The efforts that you guys put on the track and off will not be forgotten. Thanks from all Swannies for all your contributions.

We do have one more upcoming event before Christmas.

The Big Kids Aussie Xmas Bash 16th Dec @ American Club 5.00pm. (Auscham, Koto, Swans and Dragons). Lets get out there for a BBQ, a kick of the footy and some froffies to send off 2011 and enjoy a good Aussie style Christmas party!

Congratulations Skipper Dukes – Back to Backs, Best n Fairest!

Posted by Vietnam Swans on December 4, 2011

Dukesy - Back to Back Legend! Photo: Adam Martin.

Last weekend, the Swannies went Back to Back with the Indochina Cup.

Yesterday, our Skipper, Luke “Dukesy” Creamer went Back to Back with the Swannies’ Best and Fairest, narrowly nudging out Heath “Heater” Ellis.

In third position was the Saigon President, Dez Limbrick (who was the highest scoring Swannie at the Asian Champs).

The result was a clear crowd pleaser after the Captain’s Indochina Cup winning performance last weekend. Long time friend, Nat Payne who presented the votes for the Indochina Cup with Damo Ballantine said, “I have seen Dukesy play a lot of footy but have seen none better than his performance in last weekend’s Grand Final”.

Dukesy polled 27 votes out of a possible 30 votes at the Indochina Cup.

Other recipients of awards were:

  • Best Clubman in Saigon: Saigon President elect, Sam Conroy
  • Most Outstanding Contribution: Ross McRae (who also received an air fare and two nights’accomodation at the Lifestyle Resort, Danang)
  • Most Improved Players: Trent Mears and Spencer Fowler
  • Captain’s Award: Dave O’Shea

The Club also farewelled outgoing Saigon President, Derrin Limbrick and his ever supportive wife, Fleur. We welcomed next year’s incoming Saigon President, Sam Conroy.

Congratulations to all recipients of awards – and all other players who were breathing down their necks all season. It really has been a fantastic season for the Swannies Club.

Much more to follow.

Hanoi Awards and Presentations

Saturday, 10 December 2011, JASPAS. After Hanoi’s event, a complete listing of Best and Fairest votes will be posted on this website.

Swannies Awards, Presentations and Christmas Party, Saigon

Posted by Vietnam Swans on December 1, 2011

In 2010, Skipper Dukesy took out the Swannies' Best and Fairest. Can he go back to back like the Swannies at the ICC? Or was Heater too hot? Or the Saigon Prez, Dez in his farewell year? We'll find out on Saturday!

The Vietnam Swans are pleased to confirm details for the 2011 Annual Awards, Presentations and Christmas Party in Saigon (Hanoi – see details below for 10 December). They will be held on Saturday, 3 December at the Boomarang Bistro, District 7 from 2pm – 6pm.

The schedule for the afternoon is:

  • 2.00 pm – People start to arrive
  • 2 30 – 2 45 pm – Food is served

For each of our seven matches/tournament days (13 matches in total), we will display two powerpoint slides with photos. We will then have a different nominated player come up to the front of the room and in 60 seconds, highlight what was memorable or significant for them about that particular event. It may be something on field; or it might be something off field. Then, the votes for that particular round will be revealed on a single powerpoint slide and then we’ll move on to the next round.

Last year, it worked particularly well and skipped along at a good pace. And the way the Swannies have been travelling, this year will be even better.

Price is  VND200,000 ($10) for food and drinks from 2pm-6pm. To assist with catering, please confirm your attendance by emailing the Club President, .
