Alas, our grit and determination were not enough, on the weekend. The AL12’s went down 1-0, and the SWF’s preceded them, by bowing out 2-0. Gusting souwesterlies, occasional peeks of the sun, coughing and spluttering, and my case, at least, a massive case of hay fever, all conspired to not have our two teams at their best. In close to the worst possible conditions, let’s be fair – it could have rained, dedicated groups of supporters and teams turned up for the allotted game times. Their efforts on the day, were not good enough, unfortunately. Thanks you to all the supporters, particularly those that have been there all season, through the wind and the rain.
Moving on to the Grand Finals, we would again like as many supporters as possible at each of our Grand Finals, to cheer teams on and hopefully bring home two premierships. These are;
Saturday 18/08/12 21 E Engadine Eagles 11:00 am Buckle Reserve 2
Sunday 19/08/12 W30 C Bangor 8:30 am Loftus 1
As the season winds to a close, it is timely to remember all the work that is done, throughout the season by ALL the volunteers in this great (big) association of ours. For every one of us that has to drag themselves out of bed on cold winter mornings to set up our field, every other club has people doing the same thing, at the same time. A big thank you to all the Clubs that have hosted semis, finals and will be hosting grand finals, and a thank you to all the (sometimes less than willing) club members who man the barbeque, the canteen, cover ground control, so the rest of us can frolic in our final series glory. Cheers to the Referees, without whom we would not have a game! Least seen, most noticed, last but certainly not least, thank you to the Executive Committee of the Sutherland Shire Football Association and their Office Staff!
