Kellyville went up 1-0 after about 1 minute, after a tragic mistake from Mr Lum. They held this lead, and I thought were the better team, until about half way through the second half when Winsto equalised. It was a dour struggle after this, and into extra time, with both teams struggling to stay on their feet. Unfortunately it went to penalties, which we all hate. The match could have easily gone either way.
Well said 1leg thats pretty much it. All though copefanattic did miss a sitter 2nd 1/2 extra time. To the ville boys thanks for another great year. To the rocks boys look forward to catching up again next year Just not 3 times in 7 days, & to the big fella that had that 1 Plucked out of thin air, Broken Bear says sorry!!!!!! Now for pendo. So far over the past 2 years the team that has won the Final has won the grand.
Until the first goal of pendo –in the early 2nd half- it was anyone’s game. A bit defensive, a bit destructive, a bit of a boring game. Most of the time my white-bear colleagues were watching the game beside us. But when pendo score we said ‘this is it’. We didn’t expect the gummies to recover, especially when mr eski couldn’t control any ball. Even with the non-tired run of the pocket-sized (on size but not heart) marquee player. But it was another marquee player who ran by himself and when trying to cross didn’t see anybody, decided to venture for goal and to everyone’s surprise score. Luckily, for us spectators in a freezing and windy day, pendo returned the favour a few times with interest thanks to gummies being hopeless in defence. Unable to mark and put pressure at the end and it was the beginning of the end of the gummies representing the bears. Now is time for the mighty-whites to show class and fitness for 2012.

cbitche grand finals are allways like that but what would you know you have only ever whatched them. At least your daughter made it to the finals this year so there would have been some excitment in your house.
As for the pendo boys to good on the day & congrates to them 3 minor prems & 2 grand finals back to back.
As for the Gummys another great year but injuries took there toll this year & are allready at the negotiation table for next year trying to add some young legs to the side.
Thanks to all teams for a great year see you all in 2012

Fairly even game up until after the midway point of the second half. Could have been anybody's really. Probably whoever scored first was going to win it from there, and that's what Pendo did. Winsto probably dropped a bit when Pendo went 2-1 up. All in all, game played in good spirits except for one sour moment right at the end, which we all could have done without.
Congrats to Pendo, who have been the most consistent side this year, and who well deserve the title.
Great season everyone, see you all on the park next year.

Pendo lost 2-0 to a good Gladesville side (Epping YMCA). They pushed the ball around well and found there man more times than not. All goals in the first half. First one being a lucky or unlucky depending on your point of view. Our makeshift keeper had the ball covered then it took a wicked bounce, on a very hard surfaced pitch, and went under him and rolled gently into the net. Their second goal was a screamer of a shot from distance which nobody could have stopped.
Pendo played better in the second half and should have at least a consolation goal but their keeper made a reflex save to a full blooded header which he pushed onto the crossbar. We probably won the second half as they began to tire but on the day they were just too good and we were a little flat for at least the first half anyway.
Well done lads for a top season and thanks to a couple of the Winston Hills Black players for coming to watch and support us. It was very much appreciated.

Realise that we live in the real world, not an ideal one.
I believe so but if you plan to register with another team and play leading up to that date (eg an O35's team) then your club must apply to the GDSFA MC for a "player regrade". If granted you surrender your ID card and get issued with a new one.
A player is classed as eligible for Over 45 once he has TURNED 45 years of age with the following exceptions. For a period of 3 years commencing 2009 an O/45 team will be allowed 3 players who have turned 42 to be registered. In 2010 the age will increase to 43, 2011 to 44 and from 2012 all players must have turned 45 to be registered in the O/45 Competition.
On basis of above, you can't be registered to play for O45 until the 12 May
