Hello all supporters and friends of West Coburg FC. A Happy and Safe Easter to you and your families.
Round 2 of the EDFL season again saw encouraging results for West Coburg FC throughout all age groups. The juniors saw four of its eight teams having 2nd Round success, while the seniors saw the U18’s have a narrow loss to Hadfield while the Reserves and Seniors again having resounding wins against Hadfield.
At Senior level, a fantastic supporter turnout to Shore Reserve in almost perfect playing conditions, saw the U18’s squander opportunities to win the tight fought match however the seemingly lack of fitness among the playing group took its toll in the dying minutes of the last quarter.
The Reserves again showed that it will be hard to beat in 2014 as it defends its Premier title while the Senior team again showed lethal accuracy in the opening quarter to bang on 9 straight goals to put a stranglehold on the game early. Ruairi Cleary’s return from Coburg VFL saw him boot 5 goals as did Alex Stewart while Tom Watterson was nominated best on ground.
