Team News 10B Saturday JUly 16 V's Miranda Magpies
 
 
 
After a two week break the Bangor 10B’s were looking forward to a good hit out against the Miranda Magpies at Billa. 
Murray had setup some goal shooting practice drills at training on Wednesday night and didn’t take long for the boys to put what they had practised into action. The first goal came after a strong break from Jackson that saw him muscle his way straight through the middle of the field allowing him to find space and pass off to Bailey who provided great support and then crossed the ball into Lachlan R who sent a well-timed ball straight past the keeper. What a start it was…
The Maggies however, had other ideas and did very well to clear the ball from their half and pressure the Brumbies defence. Miranda used the slope of the ground and some well-directed throw-ins to put pressure on our backs leading to several successive corner kicks. A brilliant curved corner kick in the top back corner saw Miranda grab the equaliser. There was nothing Nathan could do to stop it.
With the pressure on, Jackson jumped back from midfield into fullback to help out his mates Eugene and Lachlan S. This small positional change made a big difference and resulted in some rock solid defence from the backs. Great work guys!
An accidental handball by the Maggies saw Lachlan R kick an amazing goal. The pies had lined up cross the entire mouth of the goal to block the ball but somehow Lachlan R chipped the ball over the defensive wall and found the net. What a moment, what a GOALLLLL!!!!
After the half time break, the Brumbies returned to the field pumped up and ready for action.
Ryan O looked determined from the outset and after perfectly positioning himself just near the edge of the Box he was soon rewarded when the ball got crossed in. Ryan O didn’t hesitate and sent a screamer into the net. Top effort Ryan.
But that wasn’t the end of the goal bonanza. The backs pushed the ball through to the midfields which saw Matt, Sam and Bailey all take a touch passing carefully and accurately between themselves to send a through ball onto Ryan O who booted another screamer. WOW!!
While waiting on the sideline, Ryan W got an encouraging request from his grandfather to score a goal for him. Ryan W didn’t disappoint and after a few minutes back on the field he kicked one of the best half volley goals ever. The team celebration after the goal said it all, it was enormous!
Sam, Matt and Bailey all came within inches of scoring on several occasions. Regardless they performed well all game.
Ryan O took out this week’s man of the match with Jackson and Lachlan R also taking home awards for top class performances. 
Boys, congratulations on a fantastic game, Murray’s shooting practice worked a treat.

Team News 10B Saturday June 25 v Como WEst Jannali
 
 
It was another frosty start for the Brumbies who took on Como at home this week. 
From the moment the referee blew the whistle to commence the game until the final whistle it was a close encounter and at times a physical match.
Lachlan S and Eugene did an outstanding job to shut down the Como attack and protect Andy, our goalie, who while struggling with a cold put in a great performance.
Up front Bailey, Lachlan R, Ryan W and Blake all did their best to find an opportunity to score but to no-avail. The Como defence was amongst the best the boys have played and what their fullbacks lacked, the Como goalie made up for, displaying some brilliant skill to keep the Brumbies scoreless.
Our midfield consisting of Jack, Matt, Ryan O and Sam all did their best throughout the match defending and attacking. The forwards and the midfielders were combining well and there were some great through ball opportunities. The boys had plenty of shots, some bouncing off the post and others just going wide of the goal, but they just couldn’t find the back of the net. Never mind boys the intent was there and the goals will come.
For the second half Sam put his hand up for a turn in goals and he did a great job. Sam made a memorable save to stop what looked to be certain goal to Como by diving for the ball and pushing it wide of the goal. This would be one of the best saves of the season, great effort Sam.
The Brumbies conceded about 8 corner kicks this week and it was extremely pleasing how well the team managed to defend the Como attacking plays. On every corner the boys marked up and worked together to get the ball out of the danger zone. Well done team!
After a great team performance, Matt took out the prestigious man of the match award for a brilliant game. Matt was in everything this week, helping out in defence and looking for any opportunity to push the ball forward or take a shot. A well-deserved award for a great performance.  
 
 
Team News W6B Saturday June 18 v Cronulla Seagulls
 
What a fantastic game our girls played against Cronulla Seagulls today in the rain. Right from the start Georgia was focussed and determined whilst dribbling and attacking. Eve showed her excellent attacking skills too and scored a couple of quick goals for us. Mila was amazing in defensive and saved some goals for us, as did Lani and Christina too. The girls have improved every week and it was great to see them passing to each other and implementing some of the skills they practice at training. We scored some more goals in the second half through Eve, Georgia and Mila and throughout the game the girls all had smiles on their faces and they were enjoying playing and having lots of fun. Well done girls – keep it up!

Team News 10B Saturday June 18 v Engadine Eagles
 
What a game it was this week!
The Brumbies played the undefeated Engadine Eagles at home and they demonstrated why they are such a great team.
Right from the start the Brumbies were on the attack looking for any opportunity to score, but the Engadine keeper was very experienced and wasn’t going to let goals in unless they were impossible to save.
Well, Ryan W must have watched Mission Impossible before the match, as he scored the first goal and it was an absolute cracker! Murray jumped about two metres into the air in celebration when Ryan W sent the ball into the back of the net. What a start and what a goal!!
Matt showed why he’s all class by scoring a great goal under pressure following a terrific pass from Jackson who broke through the defence and left the Eagles wondering what had just happened. Great team work and a great finish to a fantastic play.
Bailey was back to his blistering best even with an injury, charging down every ball and playing with a spirit that got his team mates pumped. In the second half, Bailey sent a brilliant cross into the Engadine goal area, that Matt got his head to, but narrowly missed the goal. Talk about great football, what a heart stopper!
Ryan O also had an injury this week and decided to be the keeper to minimise his movements. None-the-less it was a great performance by Ryan O, clearing the ball under pressure and making good decisions to prevent goals. Great game Ryan O.
Blake went down in the early stages of the game with a leg injury that forced him to retire from the match. Like a true champion, you could tell Blake wanted to play on, but he couldn’t put any pressure on his leg. Hopefully Blake will be back next week.
Sam put in a great performance this week, pressuring the ball and using his determination and speed to chase down the Eagle’s forwards. 10 out of 10 for effort Sam.
Mr Reliable, Andy also put in a great performance hassling the Engadine attack and causing havoc for the Engadine defence.
Lachlan R got the final goal of the match after he fired a ball towards the Engadine goal area that deflected off one of the Eagles and sailed into the net. What a finish to a great match.
Eugene took out man of the match after putting in a sterling performance. The defensive role that Eugene plays in this team is second to none. His consistency and determination to stop the opposition are attributes that every coach dreams of. Well done Eugene. 
Lachlan S also took home an award this week as his performance was also outstanding. Lachlan S was determined to stop the Eagles and his effort in defence was bruising to say the least. Lachlan S even had a long range shot or two at goals. Great work Lachlan S keep it up.
The boys were extremely unlucky not to have scored more goals this week. It seemed like just about everyone had a shot at goal and were unlucky.
Well done on a fantastic game boys! Even with such a good performance, there’s always room for improvement. If training is on this week, we are going to work on our throw-ins and shots on goal.
 
Team News W11A Saturday June 11 v Caringbah Redbacks
 
This week saw us playing Caringbah Redbacks at Caringbah and coming away with a win 1 - 0, which was a welcome return to the field after a couple of weeks away from training and missing a game. The girls had to be strong in defence as the opposition attacked nonstop from the start and continued this attack all the first half keeping Madi our keeper busy and constantly on high alert. Claire, Louise, Sophie and Emma were all working hard in defence and as usual they were up to the task and did a great job keeping the attack at bay. The second half saw our girls turn the tide and go on the attack and step up our offensive game and come away with a much deserved goal set up by Georgia and Michaela and beautifully put in the net by Sophie to give us the win. Morgan and Indy were great in mid-field playing both attack and defence all game and Amelia kept the goal safe for the second half. Great job girls ! Girl of the game went to Michaela who always puts in a great game – congratulations.

 
Team News 10B Saturday June 11 v Gymea
 
The 8am kick off against Gymea United saw a cold and frosty start this week for the Brumbies.  But an early goal to Gymea United certainly got the boys up to temperature.
From there it was a fast paced game that saw the ball move from one goal end to the other, both teams very evenly matched.
Eugene set up the first Brumbies goal when he intercepted a ball that deflected out of the box following a Bangor corner kick. Eugene fired the ball back in towards the Gymea goal where Ryan W stuck out a boot and pushed it past the keeper.  
Gymea returned fire shortly after with another entertaining goal. Bailey and Matt then teamed up and managed to pass the ball between themselves before Bailey made a clean break and delivered the ball to Lachlan R for an exciting goal.
It was turning into a real dog fight with Gymea scoring another goal. The Brumbies struck back again with another goal to Lachlan R, after Ryan O showed some skilful footwork to break through the Gymea defence.
Gymea demonstrated they were worthy opponents and came back with yet another goal. This time it was Matt’s turn to score, with a brilliant goal from 25 meters out. Matt is definitely a contender for goal of the season.
Apart from the match being a high scoring affair, there was some great displays of defence by both Lachlan S and Eugene. Lachlan S was devastating in defence and made it tough for the opposing players to get past him. Eugene, as usual, put in a solid defensive effort and did well to push some well-directed and controlled passes to the midfields. Jack, Matt, Ryan W, Ryan R, Sam and Bailey all played their positions well, marking up in defence and looking for each other in attack. Nathan also helped out as the goalie this week and did well to make some great saves.
A draw would have been a fitting result for this round, but Sam wasn’t happy with a draw. Sam displayed a never give-up attitude and made a great break down the left side where he skilfully crossed the ball into the goal area. This allowed Lachlan R to get a boot on it and send it into the goal for his hat-trick. Congratulations to Lachlan R on his hat-trick; a fantastic performance and worthy recipient of this week’s player of the match.
Murray so was pleased by this week’s performance, he awarded each player a Macca’s award as recognition of a brilliant team performance.
Great game boys, all the parents were very proud of the effort this week.

 
 
 

Ground Control Duties
 
Each weekend a lot of activities need to happen at the right time for the games to run smoothly, your participation is vital to making this happen.
For example grounds need to be setup, changed and packed up, BBQ needs to be setup and manned (Sunday teams only), team managers and ground control needs to be visible.
The wearing of yellow and orange vests by the team manager and ground control is a requirement of the Sutherland Shire Football Association and is to make it easy for officials (referees, Association and clubs) to locate the responsible people when required.
Ground Control duties include being a point of contact for the referees if some thing needs attention (line marking, goal net repairs etc), ensuring spectators stay back from the side line and don't stand near the goals, be present in the crowd to help keep things calm (simply being there is usually all that is required).
It is your club and your help in making the weekend activities run smoothly is appreciated by all.
See the links below for details of the Clubs expectation of teams participation in making everything run smoothly. 



 



 
SSFA Information App
 
 
The Sutherland Shire Football Association (SSFA) has purchased a new APP called Gopha that we will be using to disseminate information in a more efficient and effective manner.
 
There are numerous categories within the APP that will cover everything from wet weather, representative football, coaching courses and Fixtures, Results and Tables for competition teams.
 
The APP can be tailored to suit your needs.  So for example, if you have no connection with Sunday Senior football, this can be turned off through Settings/ My Profile/ SSFA/ and then turn each page on or off.  And it even has the ability to be set to another language!
 
Below is a link to the installation guide. It is free to download and available for iPhones and Androids.
 
Please encourage all players, coaches, managers, parents and supporters to download our new Gopha APP

No Smoking at Sporting Venues
 
Please be aware of the recently introduced non smoking regulations at sporting venues. Non Smoking signs have been put up at Billa Oval and at The Ridge fields in the designated non smoking areas. Please see below:
$550 FINE FOR SMOKING AT A SPORT EVENT

Please be aware that NSW Health - Tobacco Compliance Officers will now be issuing fines to people found smoking at sporting events.
 
Smoking has been banned at sport venues in spectator areas since 7 January 2013 under the Smoke-free Environment Act 2000.
Club members and spectators are still saying that they are not aware of the new regulation and have not been advised by their club.
Unfortunately this excuse will not prevent the individual from receiving a fine but there is a need for clubs to reinforce the awareness of this new regulation.
The fine for smoking at a sporting event is $550 to the individual smoker.
