President’s Message – COVID Return

Hi everyone! I hope you are all keeping well. This has been, and remains, a very challenging time for all of us.

WRAP | Senior Men v Oakleigh Cannons

Report by Assistant Coach Steve Laurie. Photos by Mark Avellino Photography. An in-depth week of planning preceded our Friday clash with the Oakleigh Cannons, leaving us well prepared for the difficult match-up.

WRAP | Under 20’s v Oakleigh Cannons

Report by Brandon Hutchinson. Images by Mark Avellino Photography. It wasn’t the result our Under 20’s had hoped for last Friday – going down 3-0 to Oakleigh on the road after a loss the week before.

PREVIEW | R5: Under 20’s v Oakleigh Cannon

Report by Brandon Hutchinson. This Friday our Under 20’s take the pitch against the Oakleigh Cannons at Jack Edwards Reserve.

WRAP | R3: Senior Men v Avondale

Report by Assistant Coach Steve Laurie Photos by Mark Avellino Photography   Mixed emotions saw us go down to a quality team in Avondale on Friday night.

PREVIEW | R3: Under 20’s V Avondale

The action continues this Saturday when our Under 20’s take on Avondale FC at home. Last week, we took the 3-2 result over Hume City for our first of 2020. Waleed Flifel led the side with two goals – opening both halves at the 12 and 46 minute mark. Avondale’s last round had them on…

PREVIEW | R3: Senior Men V Avondale

Round 3 kicks off at Green Gully Reserve this Friday when our Senior Men take on 2019 runner-ups, Avondale FC.

WRAP | R2: Under 20’s v Hume City

Report by Coach Ted Latomanski   Our first win of the season.

It was pleasing to see how we created…

WRAP | R2: Senior Men v Hume City

Report by Assistant Coach Steve Laurie. Photos by Mark Avellino Photography. Last Friday our Senior Men fell 0-2 at home against Hume City.

WRAP | R1: Senior Men v St Albans Saints

Report by Assistant Coach Steve Laurie Photos by Mark Avellino Photography  It certainly wasn’t the start we had hoped for against the St Albans Saints, dropping to 10 men in the first.  St Albans opened well and deserved their early score, but we still felt well in the contest as we exercised control for the…
