Bunbury Seven's

Congratulations to both the mens and the ladies teams who competed in Bunbury at the end of February.

The competition was outstanding with all clubs fielding strong teams. The men put in a great effort in hot conditions and the women were once again victorious. Jane Padgett received player of the competition.

Congratulations to Eoin and Sarah

Eoin and Sarah gave birth to their son, Jack Phillip Carberry on the 21st February 2005.

Pre-season Game Sunday 10th April

The guys went down by 9 points to Finbarrs in a pre-season scratch match on Sunday 10th April 2005. A good showing for early in the season...

Father Kelly Cup

The guys had a comfortable win against Southern Districts on Sunday 17th April, then bowed out of the competition the following week after an 8 point loss to Morley.

The women narrowly missed the finals... requiring a 10 point win in their second game they fell 3 points short.

1st May 2005 (vs Southern Districts)

Both teams had comfortable wins against Southern Districts. The guys won 3-16 (25) to 2-4 (10). The women were to coy to tell us their score.

New Sponsor - The Mighty Quinn

The committee is happy to announce that The Mighty Quinn will be joining us as our sponsor for 2005, and hopefully beyond.

7th May 2005

A great social night out was had at the Mighty Quinn on 7th May 2005. Those who ate - ate well, those who drank did the same.

Congratulations to Nat and Victoria

Nathan and Victoria gave birth to their daughter Rosa Kate on Monday 9th April 2005.

15th May 2005

Both teams had a win against the Western Shamrocks; the girls won comfortably whilst the guys fought off a late surge by the opposition to retain victory.

Dave won man of the match in the guys game.

22nd May 2005

Both teams had comfortable wins against Morley.

The men won 2-10 (16) to 0-5 (5). Dan and Matt shut Morley down across the center setting up the win... this earned Dan man of the match....

Nobody seems to recall the womens score apart from describing it as a "mauling".

29th May 2005

The guys led for the first 10 minutes of the game against St Finbars, but Finbars showed they wanted the ball and the win more. The final score Greenwood 1-9 (12) went down to Finbars 3-15 (24). Matt did a great job across the middle of the ground earning the fairest and best for the day.

The girls won convincingly 5-13 (28) to 0-2 (2).

5th June 2005

Well, I didn't get to see all the Womens game but with the final score 5-22 (37) to 0-0 (0) there is little doubt that the Women are serious about aiming for a 5th year as champions. We just have to hope that the backline doesn't get too bored.

The guys also managed a win against Southern Districts 3-17 (26) to 0-3 (3). Rory was winning the low ball all over the ground and well deserved the Fairest and Best award.
