September has arrived, as has NWFL Finals Football.
Pirtek Oval is all set for some cracking footy tomorrow as our Seniors and Reserves both take on the Devonport Football Club in 2nd semi-finals.
The Seniors are unbeaten at Pirtek Oval in season 2021 and haven’t suffered defeat since round 8 when Devonport were far too good on the day.
Three changes this week, Jayden Bramich comes into the side for the first time this season, Jackson Beattie returns form injury, as does Jay Van Essen. Connor Bramich misses with injury, with Sam Mawer and Declan Lee also out.
Our back 6 have been so consistent all year, James King has been a great ball user as has Randall Hardy, Julian Brown shows total class and confidence every time the ball comes near him, Toby Skene’s experience, knowledge, and ability to read the ball is second to none, Sam Mitchell and Geordie Dowling play as talls and are hardly beaten one on one.
Up forward Jack Templeton has fired all year finishing as league leading goal kicker on 54 goals, 11 clear of second. Not bad considering he missed about 6 weeks of footy!
Wingman Jay Van Essen is all set to play his 50th senior game this weekend, with a fellow wingman also set to join him on the same milestone achievement…
Saturday will go down to the wire with both sides eager to be first in to the Grand Final and have a week off!
The Reserves team have again named an extended squad with plenty of players available and unfortunately some missing out. The boys have gone down to the Magpies in the last couple of encounters and will be looking to reverse that and earn first spot in the Grand Final.
Please remember this event is a COVID safe level 2 event and masks must be worn at all times with masks available for free at the gate and checking in is compulsory.
Custom Workwear have also sold out of masks, with potentially more available next week.
Reserves – 12:20pm
