There you have it ladies and gentlemen … our Under 18.5’s experienced a fantastic first season in Premier Division, finishing fourth and meeting Keilor in the Semi Final. The boys had met the outfit from Keilor twice before – in Round 9 when we went down by 34, and in Round 18 when we went down by 79. Unfortunately Keilor had our number again, but with the loss narrowing to just outside 3 goals, it’s a strong testament to how far the boys have come this season under the guidance of coach Ricky Baxter and his coaching staff. It makes us all proud to see the future of the Club at the seniors levels is in good hands with this group of boys as they continue to improve with their footy.
Preliminary Finals – Coburg City Oval Saturday September 5
The EDFL will be using Coburg City Oval for Senior Preliminary Finals on Saturday September 5, and West Coburg has been asked to host the day, which means we run and profit from the canteen and bar on the day. This should be a major fundraiser and source of income for the Club to take us into 2016.
We are seeking volunteers to help us put this day on – people who can spare a couple of hours at different times during the day. We’re seeking assistance in the following areas:
Setup (from 8:30am)
BBQ staff (cooks, servers)
Bar staff (Current RSA essential)
End of day clean-up
If you can help, even for a couple of hours, please contact David Gloury on 0429 121 426 or EMAIL email@example.com

Under 16 Best & Fairest Results
Last Friday night the U16’s had their Best & Fairest Count. Congratulations to all award recipients. To capture the highlights.
Under 16 Division 1
Josh Rocco put in a stellar season and had the count stitched up mid-way through the rounds. The drama was with 2nd and 3rd place with Jayden Murat and Anthony Daquino going head-to-head for the finishing order, with a strong performance in Round 14 giving Jayden just enough to jump ahead, flip the order and take Runner-Up.
1st Best & Fairest : Josh Rocco (69 votes)
2nd Best & Fairest : Jayden Murat (38 votes)
3rd Best & Fairest : Anthony Daquino (38 votes)
Under 16 Division 4
Perry Patrikios stormed out of the blocks snaring 33 of his 49 votes in the first 7 rounds. With him playing in the Div 1 side at the back-end of the season the question was whether he’d had enough of a start to hold off James Lockwood-Spence and Ryan Blasic from storming home in his absence …
1st Best & Fairest : Perry Patrikios (49 votes)
2nd Best & Fairest : James Lockwood-Spence (39 votes)
