Congratulations to our Belmont FC U14’s for winning their Grand Final today 2-1.
It was expected to be a tough game with the semi final between these two teams going to penalties and the crowd weren’t disappointed. With Seaham Bowthorne going into the half time break 1-0 leaders, the Belmont FC team had to lift their intensity to fight back against the competition premiers. Belmont FC scored in the 2nd half, off the boot of Jayden Grozdanovski from a long range free kick taking the game into extra time. The game was end to end but as the clock kept ticking, the Belmont side looked stronger. Belmont managed to score in the 1st half of extra time with Thomas Carvalho slotting home the winning goal. Seaham Bowthorne tried to fight back and had a great shot very late in the game but were denied by a diving save by Goal Keeper Joshua Taylor.
The entire Belmont team played with purpose and can hold their medals proudly as they truly deserve them.

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. At the AGM you may just attend to hear how the club has gone throughout the season or you can nominate to fulfill a position in the club moving towards and through the 2018 season, with our current President stepping down from the committee we need more volunteers and there are many positions available.
Congratulations to Belmont FC’s O35’s.
