The weekend just gone saw all three of our adult teams start their summer season. We are very excited to welcome all the players into the U-20 and U-23 Mens team and the U-23 Women’s team.
The highlight in particular from this weekend was the U-20s coming out on top against a strong FC Copa team (2-1) and a Jersey Crew team (4-1) with Coach Barclay delighted with how his team performed in their first games together. “The boys have done a great job considering it was their first time together, I am very excited for our next game.” Craig Barclay said after the game.
Many of the players in both the Men and Women teams have come through our club from nearly 8 years ago and its great to see these players turn into fantastic players on and off the field.
The U-23 Men playing in their second game of the season were unfortunate to lose in a close game with Westfield SA losing 3-2 after being two goals ahead in what was a thrilling encounter. Head coach Kevin Nash spoke after the game saying “Although we lost the opening game there are a lot of positives to take from today’s game and the way we played.”
In a tight game with World Class FC, the U-23 Women’s team saw them go into the half with a 1-0 lead thanks to a strike from Lauren McLaughlin but eventually fell behind in a 2-1 loss. Dominic Rice was pleased to welcome some new additions from his 99′ Girls team as well as some returners coming back from college.
