Mr WILLIAMS (Hindmarsh) (13:34): I rise today to recognise the achievements of a number of sporting clubs. Football finals are in full swing. Although my beloved Port Adelaide went down in two heartbreaking losses over the weekend—one in the AFL preliminary final to Hawthorn and yesterday in the South Australian Football final—they can be congratulated for their fine season. So I want to put on the record my congratulations to President David Koch, CEO Keith Thomas and the many staff and supporters of the Port Adelaide Football Club for their 2014 season.

At a local level, in my seat of Hindmarsh, I want to congratulate the Morphettville Park Roos, who won their women's football league division 1 premiership. They defeated West Adelaide, another good local club, in a fine game. I also attended one of the games at the Morphettville Park Football Club and spoke to club members. I look forward to continuing to support the club in 2015.

I want to acknowledge the efforts of a number of other local football clubs in Hindmarsh. The Seaton Ramblers had their end-of-season presentation last Friday. It was a fine evening. I want to congratulate all the award winners from the club. The previous week, I attended the Plympton Bulldogs junior football club presentation. A number of people have said it is a great family club, and I can see why from their presentation. Both clubs are community focused, with dedicated volunteers, and their committees do a great job. Finally, well done to the Henley Sharks on their season, losing to eventual premiers Goodwood Saints, and to the Sacred Heart Old Collegians, who made the div 2 grand final. Next year, hopefully, like the Port Adelaide Football Club, they will all win the premiership!
