ROUND 8 V CLUNES
A large and boisterous group of members of the 2009 premiership side ventured out to Skipton on Saturday to have a ten year reunion, and catch up with everyone at the club. Many thanks to Tim McKay for chasing everyone up and bringing them all together for a great day. All side rose to the occasion, putting on a display of football that hopefully reassured our premiership heroes that the club is continuing with their legacy.
Under12s returned to the winners circle, kicking 4.3-27 to Clunes 1.0-6. There were some great passages of play, including a highlight being the number of our players helping out the opposition. The game was played in great spirit, with some of our players taking the opportunity to slide through the muddy patch at both 50 metre lines, before, during and after the game. Awards to Kobi Richardson, Cooper Cahill and Harry Collins.
Under15s have given themselves a buffer in eighth place at the halfway mark of the season. Whatever happens from here they have been so impressive in the way they go about their football, and it would be a fitting reward for coach and players to solidify the chances of a finals appearance even further. Awards to N. Cooper, M.Boyer and J.Pittman.
The reserves had another good win, putting themselves on equal points with the top two sides and are gradually chipping away at the percentage advantage of those teams. We didn’t have it all our way however, Clunes led at the first change, and seemed to be causing some concerns for Skipton. Skipton made the best of the slight wind advantage, kicking away in the second quarter and increasing the margin thereafter. Final scoreSkipton 14.9-93 def Clunes 9.2-56. Best were Tom Miller, Scott Robson, Brad Uwland, Jackson Mcphan, Tim Gawyne and Tom Bertalli.
By this stage in the day the returning 2009 players were starting to find their voice, offering sage advice to our reserve pla
