Sunday Update #2

So it appears that St George Stadium is now closed and today’s matches will also be rescheduled. The St George Association website has all the details – be aware that teams with outstanding games will need to be on standby to play during the week.

Sorry for the confusion but we’re all in a difficult situation here.

Weekend games update

Hi all. The Association has been in contact with us about this weekend’s Finals series. They are still re-arranging games as some of the grounds they were planning to use are now closed. Tracey is emailing relevant coaches and managers with information as it comes to hand and I will post updates once the situation is clearer (I’m reluctant at the moment in case of further confusion!).

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

Grounds closed and weekend games

As you probably know all grounds are closed. We will do our best to update you all about next weekend’s Finals series. Meantime, suggest you keep checking the St Geroge Association website as it’s a moveable feast at the moment! We will also email coaches and managers when we get more information.

Rockdale and Hurstville City Council also have Facebook pages with regular updates on grounds.

Let’s hope it clears up soon!

Our first Premiership winning team + Saturday roundup

U14 (5)

14C 2 Premiers Photo: J. Braden

BIG congratulations to the 14C2 on their wonderful 1-nil victory over Hurstville Glory in very wet and muddy conditions. Top effort boys!

Commiserations to the U16B who lost in heartbreaking circumstances, drawing 1-all with Connells Point (who came in on top of the table and therefore won); and also to the AAG who went down fighting (literally!) to Lugarno in a thrilling 6-4 goal-fest. Well done to both teams – they did us proud!

Thanks to all non-comp teams who collected their medals today and had a lovely time doing it. Also a HUGE thanks to all those who came and helped in the canteen today as we were stretched – much appreciated.

Go to our Flickr site to see photos from today’s Finals series (courtesy of the very talented Jess Braden) and the medal ceremonies (courtesy of the not-so-talented ED).

Best of luck to the five Rangers sides playing their semi-finals tomorrow – O35C1; O35C2; O35B; AAWA2 and AAWB1.

Go Rangers!!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Washed out Games from Sunday 17 August

This just in from SGFA (and in their own words):

“With regards to the Sunday Washed Out Games there may be a possibility of these games being PLAYED Mid-Week this week commencing Wednesday (20 August), Thursday and Friday Nights. Venues and Times to be confirmed. When all information becomes available the Association will notify all Clubs involved.

CLUBS and TEAMS are on Notice that this may proceed.”

Best of luck with that… Watch this space (and everywhere else) for updates.

And, on another note, the 16B won their finals and are in the Grand Final this weekend (weather depending!) – great effort. Match report below:

U16B v Sans Souci Won 3-2

Impossible to recall such an exciting, nail-biting and rollercoaster game in a long time!!! We played at Carss Bush Park, kicking off at 10:50am under a very overcast, grey sky. We were praying it wouldn’t rain as we wanted our boys to have the best chance possible of a win. Our prayers were answered. All our boys turned up and started off with a pep-talk/huddle in the middle of the field before the game got under way. The boys have been playing together for many years and most have grown up together since little boys so are a close-knit team.

The first goal of the day was scored by us but, unfortunately, not counted as one of our players was offside. That put a bit of a dampener on things, especially when Sans Souci scored the next goal which was counted! We caught up though with Dylan scoring a mad free kick goal just before half time, making the half time score 1-1.

As the skies were growing darker, Dylan managed to score his second goal of the day. We were hoping for one more goal to seal the game but the luck was reversed and a goal was kicked by Sans Souci, making the score 2 all! As the end of the second half was drawing closer everyone was on edge knowing the the next goal would seal the match by either side. Everyone played so well, the forwards, the defence, mid-fielders and of course, Jack in goalkeeper. In the final minutes, our efforts paid off with Jeremy scoring the game-winning goal that we needed to place us next week in the Grand Final against Connells Point. YAY!!!!! Well done boys, you are our heroes!!! Good luck next week.
