Grand Final Winners

post

Congratulations to Belmont FC’s under 18’s who won their Grand Final today in a tightly contested match against Singleton. It was a match play in good spirit by both teams but that by no means detracts from the toughness of the game.

Belmont hit the cross bar twice, once off of Brandon Greenwood’s head and later from a sweetly struck shot from Joel Blackburn’s right boot but were not able to find the back of the net in regular time.

The game went into extra time with a extra 20 minutes to be played (10 minutes each way). Late into the second half of extra time and Nick Elliot was fouled in the box and was awarded a penalty. With just 3 minutes left on the clock, Nick kept his nerve and placed the penalty to the left of the keeper and into the net. The one goal was enough to separate the teams and secure victory for the Belmont FC team.

Congratulations to Dave Grew (Coach), Steve Veale (Manager) and all of the players on what has been a successful season.

Grand Final Winners

post

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 team:
Joshua Taylor (GK)
Zoey Barlow
Sam Tresidder
Alec Piper
Mitchell Johnson
Matthew Langholz
Jayden Grozdanovski
Aleisha Brewster
Cameron Starrett
Bryce Haddow
Jack Grainger
Thomas Carvalho
Ethan Gorton
Aiden Mitchell
Lincoln Watts (Absent due to injury)

Belmont FC Grand Final Fixtures

post

Belmont FC have two teams playing Grand Final fixtures on Saturday the 1st September.

Through a bit of good fortune, they are both at the same ground which allows us, the Belmont FC community to really get behind both teams and show our support.

Head down to Chapman Oval (Swansea) to see the All Age team kick off at 12:00pm and the U14’s kick off at 1:15pm.

The All Age team will be taking on Maryland Fletcher and will be out for revenge after Maryland Flecther won the Semi Final 3-2, while the U14’s will take on Seaham Bowthorne, a team which has only tasted defeat once this year and that was at the hands of our side in the Semi Final.

Good luck to both teams. We’d love the see a crowd of blue and gold in support of our teams for the Grand Final matches. Get down there and support your club. Let’s go Belmont FC!!!

Finals Wrap Up

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.
