ROUND 4 v NEWLYN
We travelled to Newlyn this week for a great sunny days Football and Netball. We have had a couple of wet and cold days there in past years so it was a pleasure to see the great weather and good ground to play on.
The Under 12s are continuing to play well together and are undefeated after 4 rounds. The coaching team led by James Draffin continues to work to improve skills and teamwork to help our young team improve. Final scores Skipton 7.4-46 to Newlyn 0.1-1. Awards went to Will Sheehan for the Pinky’s voucher and the Skipcoin to Lachie Gardner.
The Under 15s continue to work on their teamwork and bringing all players into the game. Coach Kelvin Scott is very keen to develop the younger players as well as the more senior guys and thinks there is good progress in this area. He is aware that you need a whole team playing well when they are challenged by better sides in the games to come and is trying to prepare the side accordingly. A highlight was to see one of the younger players in Marty Boyer kick the first 7 goals of the game. He kicked 11 for the game and well as setting others up as well. Skipton 18.9-117 to 0.1-1 Awards, Pinky’s Jesse Kennedy and Skipcoin Jack Shady.
The Under 18s again struggled for numbers, coach Chris Jones has worked extremely hard over the last couple of months to put a side on the ground and needs a few more players to top up the side. Chris is doing a fantastic job with the resources he has, and the list he has is a talented one, just a bit light on for numbers. Four or five extra players would give a quality coach a quality side to work with. Please give any potential players names to the club so we can help Chris out. With a score that didn’t reflect the effort of our boys Skipton were defeated 3.1-19 to 13.18-96. Awards, Pinky’s Jack Sheehan and Skipcoin Matt Plover. Emu Creek Deli voucher Cree Stranks.
The reserves found the going a little tough with several players called up to the senior side. They battled away hard all day but the final score was not particularly complimentary Skipton 1.1-7 to Newlyn 20.12-132. Skipcoin vouchers went to Rick Henrickson and Josh Sandlant.
