It has been a successful year for Football in 2022. Our Under 19 Girls won their group stage in the Uhlsport Cup and the Under 14 Girls made it to the grand final in the ISSA Cup.

Since 2019 Somerset College has been entering players into several school football tournaments, answering students' calls to play more football as well as the Season 1 APS competition. 


The Under 14 Girls went good through their group stage with victories against King's Christian College and Kimberley College. These victories were leading us into the quarter finals. In the quarter final we played versus Brigidine College, playing at home. The Girls started well with both teams in good shape, they were able to create opportunities to score. Half time went to Somerset, 1-nil. In the second half Somerset scored two more goals to take the match.

For the semi-final we travelled to Brisbane to play against Grace Lutheran College. The Girls played at the football fields from Annerley FC. The side started well scoring three goals in the first half. They maintained intensity in the second half to claim a 7 to 1 victory.

A week later, on September 1, with permission the girls headed to Brisbane again to the fields of Annerley FC. In the final we played King's Christian College. The game was very entertaining with both sides playing good football and showing good sportsmanship. It was King's who took their changes to score three goals, to Somerset's one.

Well done to our Spartans who made it possible for Somerset to make history and reach the ISSA Cup Final. 

Thank you to Coach Nigel Witton for coaching the Under 14 Girls.

Bill Turner Cup (Boys) and Trophy (Girls)

The Bill Turner teams, Under 15 Boys and Under 15 Girls went up against Palm Beach Currumbin State High School. Both matches were played at Somerset College. The Trophy game kicked off at 4.00pm but resulted in nil-all after full time to take it into penalties. PBC, one of the leading Cup schools on the Gold Coast, won the penalty shootout. They showed quality in playing and experience to take the win, despite our Spartans showing their best.

Uhlsport Cup Girls

The Under 19 Girls ended first in their group as the only undefeated team and earned a quarter final at home. The draw saw them up against Brigidine College. Not having played the team, the girls were unsure what to expect. Both teams showed the same skill level making quality spectating. There was a good combination of play from both sides but it was Brigidine who scored the only goal of the game.

This was the time in four years our Girls reached the knockout stage!

Thank you to Coach Harry McMaster and Miss Opperman for coaching the Under 19 Girls!

Uhlsport Cup Boys

Our boys faced familiar opponents King's Christian College, Emmanuel College, All Saints Anglican School and A.B. Paterson College in their group. The side began the Uhlsport Cup with the best intensions with a goal to end in the Top 2. Unfortunately this became too difficult to achieve. Our opponents were stronger and more experienced. However, our boys had a great time being together and playing extra matches from their favorited school sport.
