Well done M1N and M2S great games and great reports! Some room for growth this week for the other teams. Premier League 4 drew MCC 4 Goals O Colasurdo, G Hopkins, L Merret, M Singh Premier League Reserves 2 drew MCC 2 Goals B Russ 2 Pennant A 0 drew Hawthorn 0 In extremely wet weather at the SHC, the Pennant A girls played in what would have to be the most unfriendly ground conditions all season. The pitch was very water logged and the ball was not moving at a great pace across the ground. We beat HAW in the first clash 5 – 4 and were very keen to secure another 3 points. Both teams had opportunity to score – however even the hardest hits were going 5 – 10 m only through the water. The game was abandoned at half time due to unsafe ground conditions. Pennant B 0 lost Greensborough 1 A disappointing game for the Pennant B team this week. The team did not work well together for the most part of the match and this resulted in Greensborough getting the upper hand. One player did have a great match, goal keeper Laura Anderson. When the team linked and passed a terrific ten minutes resulted but a goal was not forthcoming. Greensborough came away victorious 1-0. Metro 1 North 6 def Geensborough...Read More

A humongous thanks to everyone who helped out for the preparation or volunteering during the Junior State Championships from Thu 4th July to Sun 7th July at FHC. We have received many compliments from visitors, teams, officials and HV about what terrific hosts we are. The terrific parking, facilities and refreshments among the compliments. But most importantly everyone has raved about how friendly, helpful and welcoming the environment created by our great band of volunteers is. Great job by everyone involved. Thanks to the coordinators Marj Aked for ensuring the canteen was stocked, Nicole Virtuoso/Mark White for managing canteen/facility across the 4 days, Colin Braithwaite/Colin Payne/Brendan Sheehan for preparing the venue and John Preston/Graham Whinney for cleaning the pavilion & grounds every day.
