An exciting new tradition got underway with a strong Glenorchy win, as our women's team defeated Clarence by 30 points in the inaugural Smith-Corrie Cup at KGV on Saturday.
Ben Kamaric gave a strong early indication he is back to his brilliant 2019 form with a Dusty Martin-like performance in the RSEA Magpies' season opener at KGV.
In a game that swung back and forth throughout, a string of late majors secured the win for Clarence, but there were certainly positive signs for the young Magpies, most noticeably Kamaric's form.

After being in doubt in 2021, high-level women’s football is alive and well at the Glenorchy RSEA Magpies thanks to the generosity of a group of local businesses, with a trip to Melbourne highlighting an exciting Elite Women’s Program.
“While our women’s team strongly wanted to compete in the TSLW this year, with that competition put into hiatus for 2021, the club needed support to make sure our players were not lost to football or forced interstate without a local aspirational pathway for women,” club CEO Daryl Potter said.
Enter a group of five local businesses - including Temporary Fencing Hire (TFH) and Water Industry Solutions - who have pledged up to $40,000 to cover the cost of the Elite Women's Program, while our club’s naming rights partner RSEA Safety has recommitted as a major sponsor of our women's team in another huge boost.
The Glenorchy RSEA Magpies are pleased to welcome emerging 20-year-old Nick Reibelt to KGV for the 2021 season.
“He’s a young man who’s had to do it the hard way, not being identified in the AFL talent pathways growing up and having to very much drive his own development,” coach Paul Kennedy said.
The Glenorchy District Football Club is proud to announce Brie Barwick as the 2021 captain of our women's team.
Just 20 years of age, Barwick is a two-time TSLW Team of the Year star who has quickly developed into a passionate and caring leader of the club her family is so connected with.
Club legend Danny Ling has signed up as a Heartland Member, and he's asking all Glenorchy football folk to do the same to keep our club strong in challenging times. Here's his message:
