Premier League: Seaforth 4 Avalon 0 - 16th August 2014

Seaforth retain Rhino Cup and move into Semi Finals

Seaforth secured a rare double last Saturday with a great 4-0 victory over cellar dwellers Avalon Premier League team at Seaforth Oval.

On a pitch more suited to ice skating Seaforth adopted to the greasy conditions from the start to completely outclass Avalon. Only leading 1-0 at half time after a Nigel Mahoney header and urged on by the large crowd Seaforth again went on the attack from the start and it was not long before both Mahoney and Jake McCann had doubles to their names.

This win topped of a great season for our P/L first and reserves with both teams reaching the semi finals and retaining the Rhino Cup.

The Reserve grade were very disappointed when Avalon forfeited the reserves grade game with only minutes to go before the game was due to commence, not ideal preparation for a team getting ready for the semi finals.

Club President Richard Wright says that he is ecstatic with the performance of both Premier League Men's and Women's teams, "This year was a year of consolidation in these leagues and giving us time to further build on these squads. This is our first year back in the top flight and all our teams will be participating in Semi finals this weekend. No other club can boast that achievement and every player is to be congratulated".

The weekends fixtures are still unsure because of the rain that hit Sydney this past week but all teams have tough matches ahead. Please see MWFA website for the fixtures and grounds to be used, providing it stops raining...

Premier League: Seaforth 1 Wakehurst 1


Seaforth P/L side moved closer to semi finals football when they shared the points with Wakehurst at Lionel Watts last Saturday.

The game was played at a frantic pace, with both teams knowing that a win would almost certainly see them into the semi finals.

Seaforth opened the scoring with a well taken penalty kick after a foul from a Wakehurst defender. This spurred Wakehurst to attack with more and more raids on the Seaforth goal. They were rewarded in the 35th minute when a dangerous in swinging corner was headed in at the near post.

Second half saw Seaforth continually attack Wakehurst on the flanks through great combinations from Ryan and Jake McCann constantly tearing Wakehurst apart. Wakehurst also has two great chances to seal the points with only great saves from Steel keeping them at bay. Seaforth went close on many occasions but could just not put the game away.

There were many great performances from the team and nobody could question the commitment from the boys.

This week sees Seaforth entertain Avalon in the Rhino Cup, plus our last chance to advance to semi finals football, so the boys are hoping for a big crowd to cheer them on across the line.

Reserve grade suffered a 2-1 loss to a very determined and fired up Wakehurst, but remain in the top four and now will prepare for semi final football.

Saturday also sees Sponsors Day and Ladies Day with all Ladies welcome to join the celebrations at the clubhouse.

Please be aware that the KO times have been moved back to 1pm and 3pm.

This Saturday sees the final game of our Premier League squad and the annual event between Avalon and Seaforth to add spice to the day, both teams will fight it out for this years RHINO CUP. This cup has been an annual event between the two clubs for several years and is sponsored by Renaissance Sports.

Premier League Women: Seaforth 0 Brookvale 2

Last Sunday our Women’s Premier League sides took on the competition leaders Brookvale in a bruising encounter at Seaforth Oval.

Playing against more experienced players, Seaforth held their own for much of the game matching it with the highly fancied Brookvale team who played a very physical game against our more skilled women.

The game was played at a fast pace with the ball being moved from end to end as both teams sought their chance to open the scoring. Having frustrated their opposition as the half time whistle sounded, our girls walked off for the break with their heads held high knowing that Seaforth had done a great job in holding Brookvale scoreless.

The second half opened as furious and physical as the first, with both teams taking the ball into the opposition’s defensive quarter. Shots at goal were quickly snuffed out by last ditch defence whilst Jess Williams, the Seaforth goalkeeper, was kept very busy in denying Brookvale their opening goal.

It was only through a change in fortune, and some obvious blunders by the referee, that saw Brookvale score a fortunate goal against the run of play.

Tiredness from the hectic pace of the game started to show in both teams and both benches were kept busy in rotating their players. Again, against the run of play, Brookvale broke through the rock steady Seaforth defensive backline and managed to squeeze a second goal in.

Seaforth had a few chances to get on the board through Hannah Williams & Chloe Guthrie as the game came to a close but were denied by the last ditch defence and some unfortunate inaccurate shots at goal.

The final result was 2-0 against Seaforth but our girls will have gained a lot from the encounter.

With 1 round to play and a spot in the top 4 now secured, our Women face another tough match-up next Sunday when they come up against Manly Vale A at David Thomas 2 before taking their place in the semi-finals the weekend after.

Coach Ash Mathieson commented after the game that, despite Brookvale being the runaway leaders in the competition, they were made to work very hard for their victory today. With some luck, the result could have been very different but congrats to Brookvale, they have been the benchmark all year, we wish them luck for the upcoming final series & in representing our competition in the upcoming Champion of Champions.

Our Women’s Premier League Reserves team lost to Brookvale 1 nil in a see-sawing game that pushed both teams to their defensive limits. Also assured of a spot in the semi-finals, the WPL Reserves have been readily supported by our W18/1 girls who have happily played up to cover for injuries to our WPL teams.

Premier League: Seaforth 1 Narrabeen 0


Seaforth FC Premier Squad took another step towards playing semi final football when it defeated Narrabeen at Seaforth Oval.

The game was not a spectacle but rather a hard battle from two teams desperate for two points, the first half produced a number of chances to open the scoring which kept the good size crowd on their feet.

The second half playing out much the same as the first, and with the sun setting over the oval, the game looking like ending in a draw in the 83rd minute, after some furious action around the Narrabeen goalmouth, Seaforth shot the ball, the Narrabeen keeper could only parry it and Seaforth were on the spot to pick up the rebound and score, much to the delight of the supporters.

The referee then added to the tension by playing a whopping 7 minutes of extra time before finally blowing his whistle. A great win for the side putting them into 3rd place on the ladder.

Reserve grade picked up 3 points and 5 goals and did not even have to take the field - with Narrabeen forfeiting reserve grade. This week Seaforth will be at Lionel Watts to play Wakehurst.

Seaforth and Strikers Fight out Draw

Seaforth chances of playing first grade semi finals took a minor set back last Saturday after a hard fought 2-2 draw with Strikers at Seaforth Oval.

In what was classed as a six point game with both these sides fighting for a semi final spot, Seaforth took the lead through ex Striker Nigel Mahoney to put the home side in front mid way through the first half. The crowd had not settled back in their seats when Strikers were awarded a dubious penalty after the Strikers player just appeared to slip in the wet conditions. Strikers equalising from the spot.

Once again Mahoney scored for the home side with a great shot from outside the area. With the home side looking to a very important win, a foul on a Strikers player well outside the box seemed harmless, but after a fierce shot and a very unfortunate error by Steel the Seaforth keeper, the lead was surrendered again. Both teams attacked but to no avail and the 2-2 score line remained, in a game where the points shared was probably a fair result.

Reserve grade continued to impress with a great 3-0 win - almost certainly ensuring them of a spot in the top four, Nick Hunter on fire with two great goals. This weekend Seaforth will host fourth place Narrabeen at Seaforth Oval at 1pm and 3pm.

Premier League: Manly Vale 4 Seaforth 0

Manly Vale Win Battle

Manly Vale Premier League side battling to stay in the top flight for next season, inflicted Seaforth's second straight loss at David Thomas oval last weekend. Vale who have now turned the corner since Bob Catlin took over a month ago, scored twice within the first 12 minutes and Seaforth were unable to pull the lead back. When Vale scored after a slip over by the Seaforth defender and the score going to 3-0 Seaforth supporters were shocked, while Vale fans were delirious at half time.

With the second half starting an even money bet Seaforth were unlucky not to pull a goal back as the play see sawed up and down the bumpy pitch, and again chasing the game Seaforth went further behind when a Vale free kick eluded the defence and slid in on the far post - the final score being 4-0. While extremely disappointed in his teams performance Adam Israel added the the 13 players that were unavailable were a concern to the team.

To top off a bad day Seaforth reserve grade side also went down to Vale 2 –0 with two late goals sealing Seaforth fate.

This week Seaforth are at home to CC Strikers in a must win game to remain in finals contention.

Premier League: Seaforth 1 Brookvale 3


Seaforth FC Premier League side gave Brookvale on big scare on Saturday despite the final score of 3-1. Brookvale went into the game as red hot favourites running second in the P/L competition but Seaforth were not going to sit back and let them walk all over the team.

From the outset Seaforth went straight into full forward mode and on several occasions went close to opening the scoring. With about 7 mins to go before halftime, Seaforth were awarded a penalty and cool as a cucumber Adam Tomko stepped up and slotted the kick away like a seasoned veteran. Brookvale went into half time scratching their heads with worried looks on their faces.

The second half started the same way with Seaforth playing some entertaining football for the large crowd. Unfortunately in the 78th min, against the run of play, Brookvale scored a very scrappy goal after about 8 players all had a go at clearing the ball.

Almost immediately after that goal Brookvale slotted in a cross towards that both Mitchell Wright and old team mate Justin Hayward contested and Brookvale scored again going 2-1 up chasing the game for a result.

Seaforth were stretched at the back and once again Hayward was on hand to slot the ball home giving Brookvale a non deserving 3-1 win.

After the game Adam Israel said he was very proud of the way his boys went about their job and to stretch Brookvale with a real gutsy performance and so many young players playing in the side due to injuries and players away.

Reserve grade continued on its great run with a 1-0 win and are now almost certain to be playing finals football. This week the team travels to David Thomas to take on Manly Vale who have hit their straps since a change of coach.

Premier League: Mosman 1 Seaforth 3

Seaforth bring Mosman Back to Earth

Seaforth Premier League squad brought Mosman back to earth after Mosman's great win against Narrabeen the previous week.

In an entertaining game watched by a large crowd at Alan Border Oval, Seaforth played some of its best football of the season to lead 3-0 at the break with Ash Ryan 1 and Jake McCann 2 the scorers for Seaforth.

Mosman came out after the break realising they had to work to get anything out of this game and 10 mins into the second half they scored and Seaforth knew that they had a game on their hands, but after regaining their composure went on to win the game 3-1, with Van Marinos returning and making a great contribution.

The Reserve Grade was once again impressive and created many chances to win the game with Nick Hunter scoring the winner deep into the second half to remain in the top four - this was a particular pleasing day as the teams took six points back to Seaforth, and the squad remains depleted with 10 players unavailable.

This weekend Seaforth entertain competition leaders Pittwater in what is sure to be a very hard task for the boys.

Premier League: Avalon 1 Seaforth 0


The Bilgola bends hoodoo hit an out of sort's Seaforth P/L side last Saturday at Careel Bay.

On another balmy day more suited to the beach, Seaforth pressed for most of the first half, but were unable to finish several good chances. In the 40th minute Avalon hit the lead after a shot was spilled by the Seaforth keeper and rolled over the line, Avalon going into the break at 1-0.

The second half started the same manner as the first with Seaforth creating the chances, but as the half wore on Avalon could smell an upset, and many times had 11 behind the ball.

It will now be up to the coaches to come up with the formula to return Seaforth to winning ways before the side takes on a tough Wakehurst side at Lionel Watts this weekend.

Reserve grade continued on its winning way with a good although at times frustrating 3-0 win, and with some players knocking on the door for firsts grade spots.

Premier League: Seaforth 2 Wakehurst 1

McCann Hits Top Form

Seaforth marksman Jake McCann hit top form against Wakehurst to score both goals in Seaforth's 2-1 win against Wakehurst last Saturday at Seaforth Oval.

Seaforth hit the lead with a great goal by McCann after 8 mins with a thunderous shot into the top corner after a flick on from Nigel Mahoney.

The game was a torrid affair with neither side giving any leeway, Wakehurst equalised to send Seaforth back into caution mode and the game became an arm wrestle until late in the second half when McCann struck again with a goal that would give Seaforth a well deserved win.

Seaforth reserve grade side continued its great form with a 3-2 win over the table leaders, with 2 controversial goals to Wakehurst making the score respectable for Wakehurst.

This weekend the squad makes the long journey to Careel Bay to take on a desperate Avalon side trying their hardest to avoid the drop back. So Seaforth will need to be on their game to come away with all the points.

Seaforth Play Out Hard Fought Draw

Last Saturday Seaforth Premier League side played out a hard fought draw with neighbours Manly Vale in front of the seasons largest crowd.

Vale scored first with a brilliant indirect free kick, the ball was chipped over the wall to a player on the corner of the 6 yard box who blasted it into the net.

Nick Hunter replied deep into the second half with a typical Nick Hunter goal - he received the ball just near the penalty spot with his back to the goal turned and let fly into the bottom right corner giving the Vale keeper no chance.

This week the team travels to Narrabeen to lock horns with Narrabeen on the synthetic surface at Narrabeen High and with key players returning from injury, it's sure to be another tough game for the team.

Premier League: Brookvale 4 Seaforth 1

Seaforth beaten by Brookvale

On a freezing and windy afternoon at Grahams Reserve Seaforth suffered its second defeat of the season 4-1 against a Brookvale side littered with ex Manly United players.

With the scores locked together at 1-1 at half time Seaforth were well in the game. Brookvale scored just after half time with a great team goal and Justin Hayward scoring a double.

Seaforth can take a lot out of the game considering that Brookvale fielded a near Manly United side and Seaforth missing 3 regular first grade players.

Reserve Grade also lost 3-0 in a bad day at the office for the club.

This week the club faces Manly Vale.
