A new season and a great start. Unlike previous years, there was no room left on the team sheet. With the new strip in a box somewhere between Amsterdam and Sydney, the new team resorted to the candy stripe alternative strip. A dominating start meant the O35s went up 1 - 0 after 5 minutes through new boy Mauriccio. With a little more luck and better finishing the boys were unlucky not to have been another 2 or 3 goals up.
The 2nd goal came after 20 minutes, when Moh finall
The Over 35's are looking for new players to continue the good work that was started last year.
We play Sunday mornings, and training is on Wednesday night.

Yep, another one. You would think that if a team went on a 6 game unbeaten run that you would be sitting high and dry. Not when 5 of those games have ended in draws. This time, however, the boys had to come from behind to steal the points. Visiting Harold Fraser is pleasant enough, except if you have to play on it. The cricket square in the middle resembles the nearby Princes Highway and it's huge, so it's hard work. Carrying a few injuries and missing a few troops, it was al
The Over 35 boys went to Poulton Park looking for some consistency against the early competition leaders. Despite being behind 2 - 0 mid way through the second half, the boys felt that they were more than competing and in many instances were making the better of the play. Regardless, 2 - 0 behind they were. Phil, in goal, made 2 outstanding saves to keep the score at 2. A goal to Dolls Point shortly before half time meant that they went into the break down 1 - 2. The 2nd hal
A tale of 2 halves. The O35s conceded in the first couple and last couple of minutes of the first half. In between they hit the woodwork, had several shots saved off the line and generally dominated play and possession. Going in to half time down 2 - 1 the boys were confident that the game was there to be taken. A bludger of a second half partly due to injury and fatigue meant the final score was a 2 - 7 loss. Back to training, regroup and it's on again next week. #2017 #O35
Thankfully, they delivered.
After a couple of weeks trying to find their feet the Over 35's found some rhythm and put together a tidy passing game. They held a 1 - 0 lead from mid way in the first half and only conceded right on half time to go to the break at 1 - 1. After weathering a few attacking raids by the opposition, the Dolls Point boys were able to hold possession and put together a much stronger second half to run out 5 - 2 winners and bank the first points of the
Yeah well, the first half hour was awful. The over 35s we're down 0 - 2 and with Wayne making some gallant saves in goal lucky it was only that. As the boys begin to find their combinations they were able to claw their way back into the game. A few positional changes and more respect for the ball they were able to stem the tide. The second half started well and we started to dominate possession and territory. Pato took a good penalty to make it 1-2. Unfortunately, that quickl
The boys greeted the new season with a brand new team, with 6 new faces, combinations were always going to be an issue. The team acquitted themselves well, but some silly mistakes and crucial options meant the game got away from the boys. Down 2 - 0 at half time, they were able to get back to 2-3 until fatigue took it's toll. We'll get stronger from here. #2017 #O35 #Loss
Dolls Point were 0 - 1 down early in the game when Sans Souci were awarded a penalty from a hand ball in the area. A disallowed goal (pictured) for offside and a number of other missed chances meant this was the half time score. Despite dominating possession and creating a number of good scoring chances, we weren't able to find the goal in the second half. The score went to 0 - 2 mid way into the second half despite being camped in the opposition half. A goal to Dolls Point w
