LEAGUE

rnd4vsKatsL

We came up against our cross town rivals last weekend and we were able to win by 5 points. We started the game without our usual intensity which caused us to be chasing a lead all night. Even though we didn’t display our best football this week the group showed enormous character to keep competing for 120 minutes and eventually found a way to win the game.

The President - Steve Martyn

As we start the 2012 season I would like to welcome all old and new players to our club. It good to see so many boys on the track again. I would also like to welcome our coaches for the 2012 season. Beau McDonald (league), Clint Degebrodt and Chris Ryan (Reserves). I would also like to welcome the support staff, the Committee and last but not least our sponsors, who without would make it so hard to run a successful club. To all our supporters come on down and support your team. When we're behind, it is your support that the players need the most so I look forward to you getting down to the games and getting behind your team. I like to think the Falcons are a Family Club, so bring your kids down to the game, the more the merrier! and who knows..... you may have a player of the future in your midst. We have had a fantastic start the the season with two wins but lets but we must not be complacent. To continue this success throughout the year we need everyone to continue to play there part. Players need to keep training hard, the committee need to continue the hard work behind the scences and the game days helpers will always be needed. With that said we are always looking for another set of hands so please make it known if you are able to help out. So once again Good luck tonight to all the players and GO FALCONS.

 

League Coach - Beau McDonald

We managed to win our first game against the swans in a tight contest when we kicked clear by 3 goals late in the last quarter. The swans were able to score to freely out of the middle at times which gave them momentum. The mids struggled to match them in physical pressure and were often beaten to the ball, once we put some more speed into the midfield and push our wingers and forward flankers up the ground we were able to congest there forward half and open ours up. When we became more accountable in the second half we were able to push them wide to contests rather then allowing them easy run. It was a competitive win which the boys had to work hard and fight for. The better players during this game were Vic Belotti, Ash Cooper and Dylan Foster-Reed. Our second game was another close contest that we managed to win by 7 goals after a massive 3rd quarter in which we held the sharks goalless when they were with the breeze. Our midfield showed great fight and determination to win the contested ball and to get back and help the defenders. Our overall team defence was a huge improvement on round 1 with the forwards able to react quickly and push down the ground after turnovers. The better players for round 2 were Mick Formanzyck, Clint Crudelli and Chris Wailu. Thanks to all the supporters who have gotten down to the games so far and make sure you keep coming.

Reserves Coaches - Clint & Polly

 

Great start for the 2’s against South with a full bench and plenty of blokes on the sidelines waiting for their run. The boys played a fast and hard brand of footy that built in momentum as the game went on eventually notching up our 22nd goal late in the last. Stand out efforts from Rhett Thomas and Brendon Smyth controlling the take aways and the forward 50 entries. Big Astro controlled the ruck with Ben Brieriey as a chop out and the entire midfield group dominated. The best included Kyle Hart, Watto, Rhett, Brenno, Beau Corps and Bubba. 

The Sharks proved difficult to deal with early as they cleared the ball from the centre but defensive run from Michael Dobson, Matty George, Richie Wright, Freckle, Bonky and Bubba saw us attack from half back. Rhett ran hard in the midfield and his centre men including Barty where clever with their hands. Mark Chambers killed every contest at centre half back and Polly wound the clock back with 3 clever goals and a heap of front end pressure. Jordan Perky dominated his wing and took the players mug while Ryan Dawe was a pest for the opposition defenders deep in our attack. The entire back 6 was terrific all night Matty George one of the best on his first game back with the club, Rhett and Brenno were hard running and creative again and Gilly, Gobby, and Dobbo were brilliant all over the ground. The match included a goal with a combined age of about 91 years, ask Townie!

 There are still heaps of blokes waiting in the wings for a game and we need to respect the players that miss out by making sure we impact each contest we face. Everyone will get a game so hang around lads! 

So far we have started the Club off on a positive note each night and focused on our game rather than consider the opposition. Huge challenge against the best this weekend with the Rovers in town and the Kats the following week. If we can stay focused on our game-we should make a good fist of things.

FOOTY IS BACK - GREAT WIN FOR BOTH SIDES

 

RND 1 - Falcons vs Sth Hedland

2012_-_Rnd_1_KF_v_SH_league_1

Last night at Bulgarra we were treated to a tight struggle between two evenly
matched teams. Swans had the early run snapping three quick goals in the first
quarter, the Falcons fought back slowly but at the end of the first  quarter were
still behind. The second quarter was a dour struggle with both defences working
hard. The Falcons were still behind but only a goal separated both sides.
The third quarter was even tougher with both defences working har,
there was only two goals kicked in the quarter, and it took a special play to
score both goals. The last quarter should have been a  cracker ,but in the end
the Falcons ran out winners .

 

The Falcons Reserve grade had a win also, the team who took the field had a
lot of experience which helped them enormously.  The Falcons should also be
applauded for selecting players who had a full Preseason and regularly turned
up for training. These guys will be the future of the Falcons as they are also
getting the experience from some of our senior players. They were also
full of running in that last quarter, which turned the game.

 

I must also thank the many that helped out setting up and taking down after
the game. Without your help it seriously affects our ability to stage games like
last night. If you are reading this and think you could make a difference please
call me,even if you only do one job it has eased the workload for others.

 

Lastly congratulations to both coaches, who are in the first year with the
Falcons great effort guys.

 

Go The Falcons

Welcome to Season 2012

I would like to extend a huge welcome to all our sponsors for 2012. Every sponsor plays a major part in helping the Falcons strive to be successful in 2012, and also remain as  one of the leading clubs in the NPFL.

I would also like to welcome our head coach for 2012 Beau Mc Donald. Beau has extensive experience as a coach and is a two time premiership player with the Brisbane Lions. After drawn out negotiations i managed to secure his signature for 2012

Even at this early stage he has had a marked effect on the playing group. His professional approach, and experience playing at the top level has bought a new dynamic to the Flacons in 2012. It also gives our junior  and senior players a chance to improve their skill level and better understand what it takes to reach the top. At the time of writing we still haven’t named our Reserve coach for this year. In saying that what a great way to improve your coaching credentials, working with a guy who was a assistant to Michael Voss.

I would also like to take this opportunity to welcome my committee for 2012. Like any organization finding people that want to make a difference is not easy. All the details that everyone takes for granted don’t just happen by themselves. But when there is something that has been forgotten !!!!! So if you can assist any anyway in the Falcons 2012 campaign please give me a call, and become part of the team.

It will also be a huge part of 2012 when they open the Frank Butler Centre, a place the Falcons can call home. A place with new facilities, somewhere to hang our history at last. The Falcons should also be a major player in the running of the centre . Many  thanks should go to the Shire personal who worked so hard to achieve this result.

In finishing i would like to thank those who have already started doing the hard yards, my committee, and the players that attended pre season training. I would like to think we have started on a positive note, lets get rid of the letter I and become a team.

GO THE FALCONS
