The challenge for this group in the last 5 weeks is going to be more about challenging ourselves
mentally rather than physically. With top spot all but ours and playing the 4 bottom sides in coming
weeks we need to continue to execute our structures and game style.
Goodwood Saints are always a very tough side to beat - especially on their home ground. This
showed early in the game as they came at us very aggressively and committed to the contest.
However, once again our character and leadership within the group stood tall and, when needed,
we were able to absorb this pressure and then put the foot down and control the outcome of the
In what was another very emotional week for the boys with the retirement of one of our true
leaders in ‘JR' Thomas, it was very special and fitting that he was able to present a good mate and
another first gamer in Brad Coles with his Reds playing jumper. JR’s message to the group will
hopefully hold us in good stead going forward.
Bring on Henley Beach in the ‘home’ game for ‘Past Players’ Day’ this Saturday!!

Recent inclement weather coupled with the high level of traffic on Goodwood Oval brought on
tough, heavy conditions - in stark contrast to the lush Park 9 track that we enjoy at the moment.
Goodwood kicked with a strong breeze in the first quarter but, even so, there was simply no reason
to concede goals in the way we did. There was a lack of ‘slow and controlled’ play on our part and,
when we did have the ball, we often panicked and turned the ball over in dangerous positions that
resulted in opposition goals.
However, things tightened up a bit after the first break and we were able to get movement on our
terms more and win more contested balls. Despite completely controlling the second quarter, we
still trailed at the main break.
Going into the breeze again in the third, we dominated possession and a number of our key players
lifted their output. Despite this, Goodwood cashed in on the few turnovers that we allowed them
and were able to hit the scoreboard - meaning that we still had a solid task overcoming the 20 point
margin in the last.
It was a grind and conversion in front of goal was an issue - as it was all day - but we took the lead
mid-way through the last and held on. It was far from a complete, four quarter showing - but you
always take a win against the top side.
We’re looking forward to taking it up to Henley at home this week and building more form toward

From the opening bounce it was apparent that we were in for tough battle. Central United were
moving the ball with quick, clean movement to their tallish forwards and this was was putting
extreme pressure on our full back line. Even though we had kicked with the aid of wind in the first
quarter Central United had a 1 goal advantage at the first break.
The second term followed a similar pattern with the Central United tall forwards giving us a lot of
headaches - and by half time they had extended the lead out to an 18 point margin.
During the long break we made a few slight changes to our structures. Will Brennan got together
with the midfielders and put a plan in place to give the midfielders cleaner access to the ball at the
centre ball ups. The change worked a treat and Central United had no answer to Will’s clever ruck
work. Charlie Comerford was moved to full back to combat the Central United tall full forward.
Charlie was up to the challenge and shut him out of the game. After a small change the forward line
functioned like a Swiss watch and slammed on 11 goals for the quarter (10 of which were kicked in a
10 minute blitz in the middle of the quarter) to turn a 3 goal deficit at half time into a 5 goal lead at
the last change.
The last term was not as exciting as the third but, in a solid effort, we managed to add 5 goals to our
total while we kept a dejected Central United goalless.

It was a disappointing result for the D grade last Saturday - losing to Hope Valley by 2 points after
leading for most day.
Inaccuracy in front of goal and some basic skill errors throughout the whole game ended up being
Whilst a spot in the finals is now not guaranteed, our destiny is still in our own hands with 2 minor

Last Saturday saw a solid and pleasing win for the E’s. 20 goals to 3 probably did not reflect the quality
of the opposition - but it did highlight our scoring efficiency when Prest, Martin & Vidic are up forward.
Yes, there is plenty of support getting the ball up there - but the just named trio do provide great
I was not at all happy at quarter time because we had wasted the breeze and were second to the ball
and then, to compound the issue, our kicking was letting us down. After a chat the second half saw
a marked improvement and this continued throughout the second half.
Encouraging efforts were made by a number of players - but with special mentions for Hugo Chapman,
Callum Brewerton, Fergus Willsmore and Jock Foster. Ben Vidic with 7 goals, along with Tom Prest,
Mick Sanders, Jack Bailey and Michael Siciliano, rounded out the better players.
