Where We Play 

 

The Raiders are fortunate to play in the beautiful bushland setting of Dianella Open Space, off Light Street in Dianella. 

We have excellent facilities including new change rooms, a licensed bar and a kitchen selling home cooked favourites.

Our floodlit playing surface is one of the best in the league and in 2014 the club hosted the State women's team finals.

The reserve is popular with families and dog walkers and is also host to other sports including cricket, lacrosse, tennis and teeball. Despite this, there is usually plenty of parking.

Our clubhouse becomes the hub of the club on Saturdays, particularly when we play at home. Drop in for a drink or a bite to eat and watch some footy.

Getting here by car: Access to the reserve is off Light Street. Turn east off Alexander Drive then right at the roundabout on Light Street. Or turn west off Morley Drive and turn left when you reach the roundabout.

Getting here by bus: Buses 886, 887, 888, 889 and 722 go right past our ground on Alexander Drive. Most of these are express buses which get you to Wellington Street bus station quickly and easily, and they leave about every 15 minutes. The stop to use is No. 12841 'Alexander Drive after Light Street' when going northbound and stop No. 12797 'Alexander Drive before Light Street' when heading towards the city.

You can also use the less frequent 17 and 20 buses which go along Light Street and stop outside the reserve. For those buses, use stop No. 16227 'Light Street before Alexander Drive' or the opposite stop No. 16221 'Light Street after Alexander Drive'.

Raider's Club Song

 

The Grand Old Flag

Thirds sing the song for Matt Street's 250th

It's a grand old flag, it's a high-flying flag
It's the emblem for me and for you
It's the emblem of the team we love
The team of the red and the blue!

Every heart beats true for the red and the blue
And we sing this song to you
Should old acquaintance be forgot
Keep your eye on the red and the blue!
