Well, Saturday night was entertaining!
I would like to congratulate all the players and staff for an incredible effort during our 3- 2 victory on Saturday night. What a header from birthday boy Daniel Clark, celebrating his return from injury on the day he entered this world years earlier with a priceless goal. Of course such a game could not materialise without a quality opponent so kudos to Heidelberg, they are a talented squad and will be in title contention come the end of the season I’m sure.
So if i am sure the ‘bergers will be title contenders, I must believe that we are too? We have a goal to improve from 2016 and we are currently on track. With football being the beautiful way it is we expect highs and lows along the way, but i can feel the club coming together day in day out.
Yesterday our NPL junior teams recorded 5 out of 6 wins which is a solid effort. I would like to make a special mention to our Under 12 team who have made a 100% start to their campaign, recording a 1-0 win yesterday. Coach Colin Cooper and his players are doing a great job, not only are the guys playing winning football, but they are playing an attractive possession based style which is great to see. The u12 squad is made up by over 13 players from our MiniRoo system, so a big shout out to senior player Joseph Franjic who obviously did a great job with these players last year when coaching the the U11’s.
I am looking forward to having everyone’s support for the next home game Vs Port Melbourne on May 14th. We will be trying to put another show on for you guys!
