Under 10 Girls vs East Brighton Vampires (R4) - The sun was out, and our girls were given a prime time kick off time of 2.20pm for our Round 4 clash against the East Brighton Vampires. Aside from Hannah, who was at the MCG improving her skills at a footy clinic, we had a full list of 16 girls to take on the scarily-named Vampires. Sixteen was a perfect number of players as each girl had a go in each of the three zone areas plus one quarter on the pine – well on the grass anyway! Sophie and Michaela were announced as our captains for the day and we didn’t mind losing the toss and being asked to kick into a slight breeze plus uphill in the first… Continue Reading...
Under 10 Girls vs Ormond (R3) - Our girls ventured back to Castlefield Reserve for our round three clash against Ormond. Unfortunately, Ormond only had four players and we had no hesitation to give them six of our players so we could play 10 per side.

Round 2 couldn’t come quickly enough and we were forgiven for thinking that we had arrived at the Adelaide Oval rather than Beaumaris Secondary College. The MCC signage should have been a giveaway that we weren’t playing on a standard suburban oval. The changerooms were better than those on offer at Marvel Stadium and the atmosphere in the rooms before the game was full of excitement and expectation. There must be… Continue Reading...
Under 10 Girls vs East Malvern (R1) - Our much-awaited round one clash took place at Boss James Reserve vs East Malvern. The girls had been training really well in the lead up and there were lots of smiling faces as they arrived at the ground. The enthusiasm of the group was shining through as footies were flying everywhere in the rooms before the game. The light rain that had started to fall was not noticed by any of the girls who were keen to exit the changerooms for a warm up outside. I’m sure that there were some butterflies floating around as our newly formed girls team finalised their preparations before the first bounce. Sienna showed her bravery after getting hit in the head with a wayward… Continue Reading...
