Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : January 7th 2009
36 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 8, 2009 MB Inner-West Weekly Sport Turks test our Devils SHIREEN KHALIL FOR the first time in Sydney, the Drummoyne Water Polo Club will host the Turkish National Cham- pions Galatasaray as part of the Drummoyne Devils preparation for the 2009 Australian National Water Polo League (NWPL) com- petition. Galatasaray are the water polo team of the Turkey sports club Galatasaray S.K. and have been national champions 17 times. With up to 10 members of the Turkish national team, Galatasaray are a European giant finishing eighth in the Len Tro- phy, Europe's prestigious water polo club competition last year. Galatasaray will participate in a training camp with the Australian Men's and the Drummoyne Men's teams until Friday. Last Sunday the Australian men's team (the Sharks) played Galatasaray, beating them 12-10, however the Turks may have a chance to redeem themselves when they take on the Drummoyne Devils today (Thursday) at 8.15pm (gates open at 7.30pm). The Drummoyne Devils' prep- aration for this year's National League Competition, starting in February, has been supported by the opportunity to host Galatasaray at Drummoyne pool. ''This is a great opportunity to play against a European team and is an important part of our prep- aration for the upcoming National League,'' Drummoyne Devils head coach Dalibor Maslan said. The 2009 Drummoyne Devils will be led by 2000 Olympian Sean Boyd who is very excited about the prospects for the season ahead. ''We have trained hard in the lead up to Christmas and the opportunity to play the Turkish champions Galatasaray will be invaluable for our season ahead," Boyd said. The Drummoyne Devils join 11 other teams in the Australian National Water Polo League (NWPL) with the women's team creating history when they make their NWPL debut against Cronulla Sharks on February 8.
