Under 14 Div 2 vs Waverley Park Hawks (R4) - First, congratulations to all members of the Under 14 squad: players, TM’s, coaches, parents, supporters. As always, our initial phase in any season is to have fun in a safe, harmonious, respectful and educational environment. Our aim with the D2 team was to gain promotion back to D1. Mission accomplished. Our aim with the D4 team is to be as competitive as possible and for all boys to receive great coaching and a strong environment to develop. I feel watching both games Sunday the squad has come a long way since our mid-February training runs. The boys looked and acted a little restless on Sunday for our early start away. Even the coach was unprepared. I always go check out… Continue Reading...
Under 14 Div 2 vs St Peters (R3) - My concern with our group going into round three was how we might turn up mentally following a 14 goal win the week before. I spoke to the players about this and we worked extensively below the knees pre-game to highlight how we might lack focus against a hungry St Peters. My concern was alleviated 40 seconds into the contest, Alex to Tractor, Tractor to Kento, long range kick, scramble, goal, like the week before the boys had turned up to play.

Jackie G went on… Continue Reading...
Under 14 Div 2 vs Brighton Beach (R2) - Rovers 12-12-84 def Brighton Beach 0-4-4 Firstly, a shout out to everyone’s mate, Maxy Carroll, Max suffered a wrist injury Sunday and will miss a few weeks, not great for Max or our team as he is in good form. The squad trained real well last Wednesday night, Christian, Zach and Big O noticed how invested the boy’s minds were, this normally means they are switched on for Sunday. I noted that a few boys didn’t play school footy for BGS on the Saturday, I felt they might be saving themselves for a huge game against school mates that play for BBJFC. Each week I go and look at the away venue to get a look at how it is… Continue Reading...
Under 14 Div 2 vs Ajax (R1) - How fantastic that footy is back! Six months sitting around waiting for round one 1 to arrive…while the surf, sun, basketball and BBQ’s are all good, footy is the one sport that pulls the community together like no other. Our lads had a great preseason, with several lads seen out doing extras; Lucas R, Kento, Lachlan and Ted Mac have been noticeable with running and general skill sessions. This pleased me with the hope it might rub off on the majority. Prior to the game we talked about the WE NOT ME mentality. We noted the clear size advantage to Ajax in warm up. We would hopefully share the load and rely on our training, ball movement and speed on… Continue Reading...
