The Football Gold Coast Aldi Miniroos competition played their last round. Read on for a few match reports. The Somerset Spartans Football Club had also their presentation day last weekend.
U7 White lost the last game of this season to Palm Beach Orange, with a final score of 2 to 5. Franklin and Harrison scored one goal each. Team tried hard to defend but not able to stop the strong rival. In their first season this year, boys won eight games and lost four games.
U7 Orange played at home for the final rounds over the school holidays, resulting in:
Somerset v Broadbeach - 3 to 5
Somerset v Merrimac - 14 to 1
Somerset v Mudgeeraba - 1 to 4
Somerset v Southport - 1 to 3
Recapping the season, we have had a mix of wins, losses, draws and faced some tough teams but had exciting gameplay. Each player had their moment to shine and it was very satisfying to witness the improvement in teamwork and individual skills over the season. Well done U7 Orange and a big thank you to the coaches.
Somerset Spartans U8 Blue finished the season off on high winning against Palm Beach White 6 to 2. Although there are no leader boards at this level, the boys have taken note, knowing they completed the football season with just one loss and one draw.
At the end of our match on Saturday the boys were asked to sum up the season in their own words:
Connor Millar-Martin - "I had lots of fun this season. Learnt a lot from the game that we lost and feel that we often played stronger in the second half."
Zhander Griffiths - "Our football season was great because we were challenged in the development level. We had a fantastic team because we were passing more and learnt a lot from Coach Sean and Coach Maarten this year."
Alex Pourre - "I enjoyed having a lot of teamwork. It was a fun season and a great team to play with."
Danny Wang - "I think we had an amazing game this week even through the other team scored the first goal, we defended their attacks and went past their defences. I had lots of fun this season. I hope I can do this in the next season."
Henry Pevy - "I really enjoyed this season because of how much better we got as a team. I especially liked how good some of our goalkeepers became because it meant I did not have to go in goals much!"
Paxton Stewart - "I really liked how we improved as a team and how we were sometimes challenged but we always defended well and were undefeated for most of the season."
Hugo Hassell - "I really enjoyed playing each week in the blue team. We played our hardest every game, never gave up and improved a lot over the season. I think we have become one of the best teams."
Harper Loon - "I really enjoyed winning and the great teamwork. And I really enjoyed playing in the inflatable courts against the parents: 'Go Old Stones!' at the Presentation Day."
Benedict Thompson - "I have loved playing football for Somerset this year. I feel proud to play for Somerset. Thanks to Coach Maarten and Coach Sean for teaching me new skills. I cannot wait to play next season."
Our final game for the 2020 season was against Runaway Bay at home and was our hardest game of the season. Our team struggled at the start with Runaway Bay scoring two early goals. With the support of our coaches all the boys pulled together demonstrating great teamwork, passing well to each other, and working together leading to our first goal.
As the game progressed, we started to build momentum and our boys put on a great show against a strong team securing a win for the final game of the season.
The final score was 6 to 3 to Somerset. The U11 boys were undefeated this season and celebrated with a group huddle and chant. Following from a successful win and unbeaten season, all players enjoyed the presentation day receiving their medals, team photo, certificates, and treats.
It was a great team and all players thoroughly enjoyed playing as a team this season. Well done boys. A big thanks must go to our great coaches Maarten, Daniel, and Keita. The side could not have done so well without you. You are the best.
At the last game of the season all Spartans received their team photo, football medal, Zarraffa’s certificate and sausage sizzle. Before and after the matches all Spartans could play their matches in the Inflatable Football Field.
The Somerset Spartans Football Club want to thank all players, coaches, managers, sponsors, and volunteers for the 2020 Football Club Season. We are all looking forwards having you back next season.
At the end of this term, Somerset College will send out an Expression of Interest for the 2021 season.
