Celebrating 25 years, the Club had early success picking up our 4th Mallacoota Cup, going back to back for the second time! However, it was then a long wait until July for Round 1 of 2020. With three new teams [All Age social Div 6, U13s Div 2 and U14s Super League (Div 1)], total registered players rose from 78 in 2019 to 120, just 7 short of the Club’s record number of registered players.
The O35s were undefeated in Season 2020, only drawing two games! Lead by Tim Eastman upfront, the team more than consolidated on their promotion in 2019 achieving a top of the table position. Normally, a season like that would comfortably be the best performance at the Club. However, the newly formed U13s have managed to match the results the O35s, similarly undefeated, with only two draws. Sharing the goals around, the U13s have managed to score 50 goals and only concede six! We enjoyed celebrating these title-winning seasons.
The Club’s other junior teams, the U14s and U15s, have had difficult seasons competing in their respective Super Leagues. However, with dramatic turn arounds in results in the second half of the season, all are optimistic of providing a junior football experience at the highest level.
The Premier League squad is battling to avoid relegation. Keeping the boys out of the relegation zone has been the Reserve Grade team. With four games to go, the Ressies had equalled the Club’s record point tally, 25, in the top division and were set to achieve the first top 4 finish in the Club’s history! First grade has had a tough season, but the boys are keen to pick up some good results and finish the season on a high. Season highlights included a last minute winner against Chatswood by new Firsts captain Luke Chapman (OKG17) and a 4-0 & 3-1 wins against Barker Old Boys.
Finally, the All Age Div 6 team – who all left School last year – have had a reasonably successfully year on the field with four wins and four draws. Lead by Sam Lilley and Ewan Denton, the team has been quick to represent the club proudly. We look forward to working with the boys for many years to come!
