426-goal season

-

What was supposed to be the second last week of the regular season of junior soccer ended up being the last.

Mixed results from the weekend with the ladders now fixed in place for the finals.

This season the stats show 462 goals scored from 88 matches.

We’d like to thank all the volunteers again for their time and effort throughout the season in these trying times.

Unfortunat­ely, due to lockdown this weekend’s games have been cancelled and the finals delayed until we come out of lockdown.

If we can play the finals before September 25 the matches will go ahead. If not, we’ll declare the winners of each grade to be the team that finished top of the ladder.

Watch this space and let’s cross our fingers that we can have a finals play off.
