The Finals Series is now over and Belmont FC proudly has a Grand Final winning team in our Over 35’s Friday night team.
We had five teams make the Semi Finals, our U13’s, U17’s All Age G grade and All Age K grade and Over 35’s.
We saw mixed results with:
- U13’s winning their match 2-1 vs Warners Bay to move into the Preliminary Final
U17’s winning 3-0 against New Lambton earning their place in the Preliminary Final
- All Age K suffering a loss to Cardiff 5 – 3 which forced them into the Preliminary final after a top 2 finish in the competition
- All Age G winning 2-1 against South Cardiff and claimed their position in the Grand Final
- Over 35’s suffering a 2 – 0 loss against Lake Macquarie which forced them into the Preliminary final after a top 2 finish in the competition
Moving into the Preliminary Finals round we lost two teams in the battle with three moving through to the Grand Finals. The results were as follows:
- U13’s suffered a 3-0 loss to the Kahibah team that went on to win the Grand Final against the previously unbeaten Maitland team.
- U17’s went down 1-0 against Cooks Hill is what was a close encounter.
- All Age G had a week off after their win in the Major Semi Final.
- All Age K won 2-1 against Belswans in a closely battle game.
- Over 35’s had a 2-0 win over Rutherford to gain their place in the Grand Final.
Into the Grand Final, the three remaining Belmont FC teams were full of hope.
- The weekend was off to a great start with our Over 35’s claiming victory on Friday night with a 1-0 win over the Lake Macquarie team that had beaten them in the Semi Final 2-0 two weeks earlier. This was Belmont FC’s first win over Lake Macquarie in the season.
- Unfortunately our All Age G were not able to continue with the winning ways for Belmont FC on the receiving end of a 4-0 loss against a tough South Cardiff side on Saturday.
- The unfortunate results continued on Sunday with our All Age K suffering a 2-0 loss to Cardiff.
Belmont FC is proud of all of its team, not only those who made it through to the finals and would like to congratulate all of our teams on a successful season. We look forward to celebrating the season with you at our Presentation Day on Saturday 16th September at Marks Oval, and then call upon you to come along to the AGM on Monday 18th September at Jewels Tavern.
