Finals Football – Northcote Park Seniors & Reserves

General News, Uncategorized
Hi All, Week 2 of the finals has both the Northcote Park Seniors and Reserves playing in the second semi final.  Unfortunately the under 19s bowed out last week but with most of the team bottom aged they will be back bigger and better for a big tilt at the flag next year.  They say a week is a long time in footy, I'm hoping 3 weeks seems an eternity for Macleod as 3 weeks ago they defeated Northcote Park by 14 goals.  It will be different on Saturday though with 8 changes to that team including the inclusions of the 4 Collingwood VFL players, Ash Close, Jackson Starcevich, Jordan Collopy and Marty Hore.   It would be great to see the junior club supporting the seniors of which most…

Finals News & Results

General News, Newsletter, Uncategorized
Apart from an exciting win for U12 Silver, the Preliminary Final results unfortunately didn’t go our way. It was a great effort by our U11 Coaches, Team Managers, other volunteers and especially the players to have both teams contesting Preliminary Finals. The boys should be very proud of what they've achieved in making it to the second week of their first finals campaign. U14s have moved up a division from last year and shouldn’t be too disappointed to lose to a powerful side, and they wouldn’t have made it as far as they have without strong support from our U13s. U14 Girls have accomplished a lot in their first season and should be really pleased with how far they’ve come as a team this year and the improvements that all…
