Adenbrook Homes announce their sponsorship of the Valleys Diehards Seniors!
Adenbrook Homes are proud to announce their sponsorship of the Fortitude Valleys Diehards Men’s and Women’s Seniors 2021 teams. Glittered with a rich history in Queensland Rugby League, the Fortitude Valley Diehards were formed as one of the first founding clubs of the QRL in 1908. It did not take long for the Diehards to establish their legendary name, taking top spot in their first Brisbane premiership season in 1909! Amongst a highly decorated past, the Diehards are proudly the most successful in the BRL with an exceptional 25 First Grade Premierships in their club history. The almighty gladiator is a symbol of the club’s core principles of sportsmanship, passion and pride, all attributes that are synonymous with Adenbrook Homes core beliefs.
The Diehards won the bid to compete in Women’s 2021 BHP Premiership, after the cancellation of the inaugural season in 2020 due to health concerns attributed to Covid-19. A momentous achievement for the club, as this will be the first Diehards A-Grade women’s team in 50 years.
Women’s Football Superstar Ali Briggenshaw leads the formidable First Grade Women’s team in the BHP Premiership, 2021. Ali has led the Brisbane Broncos to victory in the NRL Telstra Women’s Premiership for three consecutive years in a row (2018, 2019 and 2020). In 2020, she was awarded the Dally M medal, another outstanding career achievement for the Valley Diehard. Ali joins many of the leagues greats to wear the ‘Royal Blue’, including Adenbrook Homes proud brand ambassador Scott Prince. Adenbrook Homes are proud to support the Fortitude Valleys Diehards Women’s Seniors.
The Men’s A Grade Seniors will participate in the 2021 Brisbane Rugby League (BRL) Premiership. The Brisbane Rugby League (BRL) Premiership has a diverse past with many of Queensland’s great football stars finding their start at the Valleys. A club with a proud history, the Diehards have won multiple premiership titles with some of the greatest names in the league including Duncan Hall, Norm Pope, Mick Retchless, Marty Scanlan, Ross Strudwick, Gavin Allen, Mark Hohn and most formidably ‘The King,’ Wally Lewis. In fact, Wally signed up as a Valleys Junior and just like many of the Valleys great players, Wally went on to represent Queensland and Australia. Continuing Diehard family tradition, Wally’s daughter Jamie-Lee makes an exciting addition to the 2021 women’s team.
The BHP Premiership kicks off on April 10th when the Diehards take on the North Queensland Gold Stars at Barlow Park in Cairns. Fans will be able to tune into live games as part of a ‘new era’ of broadcasting announced by the QRL, which will broadcast 20 regular QRL season matches. Fans will be able to watch live on 9Now, QRL’s Official website, the Intrust Super Cup app as well as on NRL Network.
Join Adenbrook Homes as we cheer on the Fortitude Valleys Diehards in their 2021 season.
