After a couple of close losses,  the Wellers saluted with an emphatic 10 goal win on their home deck at GBO to claim their first win of the season.

We would lead from start to finish and play some scintillating end-to-end team football.
Our on ball brigade led by the captain Hart and "The Running Bull" Latsas were impossible to stop and continued to feed our forwards who were loving the quick open deliver. Tom Kanz would finish with a bag of 7. Big man Declan Mitchell 5 and Ginger Allen would have a breakout game to finish with 4 majors from the wing.

Our backline was equally impressive with Chook Howells and Phil Bennett cutting off many Oakleigh forward entries and Damien Proska keeping the dangerous Cloke to 3 goals. Jackson Eade  also showed some great signs down back playing his first game since major surgery last year.

The most pleasing contributions from the day would come from our younger group who are continuing to develop and are starting to play major roles within the team. Tavener and Parker down back and Wells, Allen and Trait through the middle continue to improve in all areas of the game.

The challenge for the group is to back up our 4 quarter effort from Saturday and take that commitment and work ethic into next week's game at Caulfield.

Thanks to all supporters and helpers on the day.

Goal Kickers: T. Kanz 7, D. Mitchell 5, C. Allen 4, K. Darby 2, B. Hart, S. Powell, N. Latsas
Best Players: P. Bennett, K. Darby, R. Deev, A. Parker, D. Proksa, A. Taverner

A solid win to the Reserves and very exciting group of players coming through the club.
Oakleigh, always a competitive group, challenged our team but we held fast. We drove the ball into our forward line throughout and scoreboard pressure was maintained.

Early in the game their were a clash of heads and Stefan suffered a cut and broken nose. Though he was very unwell at the ground and we called an ambulance. Thank you Rajah and Vanessa for their good work looking after Stefan, till the Ambos arrived. I am happy to let everyone know he went home on Saturday afternoon and resting at home.

As we did start with 3 on the bench, by the end of the game our bench was zip. Again the whole team were very good and met all challenges, on and off the ground.

Youngie was great in the middle, driving the ball forward, Hookie in the backline and then at CHF was a great focal point throughout the game, even with his “12 minute rest”. Our young group of players contributed very well. Firey Kaiser midfield and forward line, bleeding ankle Bedford kicking 3 goals and Benny Mann - playing rucking, backman & forward, Peppers on the wing, ruck & midfield, Vogel with his dashers along the wing, and Bromma in the ruck, forward and back all these players are contributing to the team and the club.

The older group of the team, Corso continues to hold the backline tight, supported by Ollie, Louie, Huggie and the team very well lead by Lucas for the day. Tommy Stayner back from injury got into the flow of the game. Blake was strong at half forward, keeping the ball in the zone, Dickie was switching the ball through the midfield through the game, Schip back and forward and ruck, Squid and Boyce driving the ball forward to Pelchen's paddock. it worked well and Bedford at his feet in the third quarter was great to see.

Well done everyone, thanks to Tim Cottrell (everything), Wearly (timekeeping/Scoreboard), Andrew Lane (Boundary), Caleb (Goal umpiring) and Tom Schipper for organising the afternoon tea (remember to turn the urn on though).

Goal Kickers: D. Pelchen 7, T. Bedford 3, M. Vogel 2, M. Hook 2, S. Kaiser 2, C. Young, B. Hillier
Best Players: M. Hook, C. Young, S. Kaiser, T. Bedford, B. Mann, D. Pelchen

Andrew Tsindos
Reserves Coach


Taking to the field with 17 players was never going to be easy against a full squad from Werribee. To make things tougher we were kicking in to a strong breeze but we spoke about endeavour and effort before the bounce and that's what all the players showed holding the opposition to 3 goals through some great work from the backline. Our on ballers worked hard as well ensuring that we were working defensively and providing plenty of support.

The second quarter we continued to work hard and after losing Greg Strickland to injury we were down to 16. Despite the numbers we managed  to kick 2 goals and hold the opposition to 2 goals and were trailing by under 4 goals a sign of the work from the entire team.

The backline of Eastick, Huysman, Stone, Urwin, Wakefield and Warburton worked hard to ensure that the opposition forwards and midfielders had limited chances to score despite a number of entries.

In the second half we managed another 3 goals, unfortunately the opposition managed to kick 14 more goals and ran out winners by 98 points. The midfield of Cottrell, Webb, Louey, Clark, Jackson and Cramb worked hard and continued to run and pressure all day despite limited rotations.

Despite the final score - there were some really positive signs and given we can get 22 players we will give plenty of the sides a run.

A huge thanks to all the players, trainers, helpers and supporters who came down and watched the effort and endeavour that all the boys put in.

Goal Kickers: N. Russell 3, T. Eastick, J. Morris
Best Players: T. Eastick, B. Warburton, S. Clark, S. Stone, M. Wakefield, B. Cottrell
