Under 13s Due to low numbers in both Under 13 teams it has unfortunately become apparent that the best option for the rest of the season is for the Under 13 teams to be amalgamated. We have had the opportunity to discuss this with many parents and most seem to agree that this is regrettable but the best option for the remainder of the season. The Gold team will play their final match this coming weekend, helped out by players from the Blue team which has a bye. Players from both teams will then become part of the Blue team, with Matt as Coach. We feel that this action will give the greatest number of players the chance to enjoy the remainder of the season, and we thank all Under 13 families for…

Safe and Secure at Football Grounds

Uncategorized
A Message from Darebin City Council Darebin City Council​ would like to remind clubs to be extremely mindful of leaving valuable belongings and personal possessions inside change-rooms and around club facilities at all times.   An incident in Darebin has recently occurred during which a vehicle and a number of bags were stolen during a club training session.   While this event is extremely unfortunate and unlikely, it should serve as a stark reminder to clubs to remain vigilant in ensuring club facilities are a secure and safe place to participate in sport.   Darebin strongly recommends locking valuables in a secure location and having a club official monitor club facilities during all training and competition times, in addition to locking sports facilities after use.

Match Report Round 7 Under 9 Green

Uncategorized
Hi Cougars  Well done on one of our best performances for the season so far today against Mill Park.   I loved the way our backline players got on their opposition player straight away at the start of the 1st quarter and stayed near them all quarter. Our backs of Luca, Jono, Maxwell, Sam and Saul were fantastic taking several marks in defence.  Hamish and Archer gave us plenty of drive through the midfield. Jai kicked a great GOAL from a set shot, and Asher snapped one from the pocket. But my favourite play was when Luca yelled out to Sam that he was “HOT” when Sam had the ball and a Mill Park player was about to tackle him – great awareness and voice Luca!  There were some great passages…

Match Report – Round 11 2 July 2017

Uncategorized
Under 9 Gold An impressive layer of frost greeted us this week, but at least there was no wind and rain! The last time we played Greensborough White it was an evenly run contest - and as expected this week was no different. To get focused for this week’s game I viewed a bootleg copy of last week’s game shot from high on the Research Oval hill (BTW what a fantastic place to play football).    It was a bit like watching ants scurrying across a table whilst dealing with intermittent motion sickness.  Thankfully however this time the appointed family member camera operator understood the red light means ‘Recording’ and no red light means ‘Not Recording’.  (Anyone wanting to watch swaying footage of the ground and sky immediately before and immediately after…
