WDSL 2014 Finals!!!!

2014 has been another HUGE year of soccer for both the Senior & U/15 Teams in the Warrnambool District Soccer League!

The Seniors did a tremendous job getting sooo close to the grand final, just getting knocked out at the very end of the season.  Well done to all the players!!

Under 15 made it to the grand final for 2014 and played Merri Stingrays.

After entering the ground to “Rocky” they all stood for the National Anthem…1The boys were all ready to go2

We must give a HUGE thank you to our wonderful coach Steve who put so much thought and effort into the season, all the boys turning up to training and giving their all when asked and to our Under 15 Major Sponsor Manse Medical (the uniforms look great!)

We look forward to seeing everyone at our Presentation Dinner on Friday 17th of October @ the Hamilton Harness Club.  More information will follow regarding this.

The Under 12’s had a spectacular game, blue team 1, white team nil.  Very close!  Everyone had their ‘eye on the ball’.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The under 8’s always have a fabulous time, getting in there, going for goals and not afraid to take a dive for the ball!  Great job!

Scotts Creek may be a bit of a drive for a game of soccer, but when you are rewarded at the end with a trip down the gorgeous Great Ocean Road, or lunch @ Port Campbell or ice cream & coffee at the Timboon Distillery it is well worth the day out!  It helps too when the Under 15s and the seniors won their games.  It was a great day had by all!
