Well done Stanes. Considering you boys got pumped in the first game and then struggled for the next 3-4 weeks it is a real credit to you guys making the GF. Good hard game on Satday with everyone giving it their all. Plenty of bodies being put on the line but everyone getting on with it. Great bunch of fellas. Thought the referee had a great game (even though one of our boys let him have it on every decision - can't believe ref didn't card him, he is far more patient than I am!!??). Well done again Stanes and give the CHU boys hell next week. Should be a cracker.

well a gf without kv wont seem the same but congrats to stanes. I can't help thinking back to that game at bernie with 9 players where stanes held out for a draw...and ended up beating whites on goals to make semis. A just reward.
Chu blacks played whites on saturday so thanks to them for their support...few beers and a bbq after.
Now the whites let me play in goals on saturday for them. After I had let in 7 by half time, they were rueing that invite....I was too. Especially when one unbelievably booming voice yelled from the back, 'no wonder you didn't make the semi's whites...your keeper is shite".
So I hate CHU black as well and by the way, captain scored 7...one man team!!!
Anyway here is hoping for a big field with grass next weekend.

We (O35-4) played on Ray Marshall #1 (closest to Erie St) last week and it was very dusty! I think field 2 (closest to the creek) is a little bit better. No.3 (old Athol Barnes Res) is the best field there!
Just thought I would reassure you that I have it on good authority that you have the "TOTAL SUPPORT OF THE BOARD" to continue in your tenure as Kellyville O35/s Div 1 coach for next year.Enjoy your summer!!
Even though i have full support of the board i feel it is time to move on,i have carried this team for the past 5 years as player and this year as coach,i have to say it was easier coaching the under 7s than 35/1s,i got more sense from them!,also after leading the u16s last year to win the grand final and the u7s remaining unbeaten all season this year i feel its time to turn my attention to the little kids.
you are right,i have come out of retirement again as i have recieved a very,very good offer from div 3 kellyville,they havnt won anything apart from the raffle in the last 5 years so its time to help them out,i have been assured i can take all the goal kicks,corners,free kicks and even penaltys and it is just too good an offer to turn down,also bigcheese i will be very dissapointed if i dont get 30 goals and am willing to have a small side bet if you are up for it,
Will there be a Ville 35/1's next season? Word has it that a number may hang up the boots and others may play in different leagues/divisions to more enjoy their twilight years. It seems that some players are also fed up with being done by Greystanes and CHU and others are fed up with being carried by Notworthy
If my spies are right I believe your conversation with the board the night you were appointed went something like this. BOARD. Mr Notworthy we have selected you to take over from Hollywood because we would like the team to head in a different direction and end up with different results. Notworthy, Thank you gentlemen and I promise that we will be in a different position next season.We will not get wiped 5-1 by C/Hill in the Grand Final under my care.It will be totally different.
Hats off to you Coach Notworthy.You were true to your word.For the first time in 5 years Kellyville will not appear in the O/35s Div1 Grand Final. That is something completely DIFFERENT.
What can i say,this season was more about relaxing and having a bit of fun,not the be all and end all to beat c.hill as in previous seasons,didnt really count myself as coach,just put my hand up to pick team and make changes which wasn't very hard as we only had 12-13 most weeks,we all know what input i have in the grand finals last two years so i thought this year i would really make a difference by not been there at all,also its the first time in 3 years that we have had 3 teams in it which is good,
I have spoke to the board of directors and they have aggreed to pay out my contract,so the beers are on me,
