Week 6 – nearing the end of Singapore football but start of September action in Australia

After a fantastic six weeks, we are now winding down the round robin tournament for the kids.  Grades 4/5 finished last weekend and now have the opportunity to play against HK this weekend.  The grade 6+ kids have their Grand Final this weekend. Yet again, thanks to the parents who coach, umpire and cheer on the kids.  

Year 6+ will be having a kick immediately after this week for their final games.

The format for this week's games is as follows:

At the conclusion of the HK games (estimated at 5.30pm please be there at 5pm at the latest)

Similar numbers again with around 20 players for the final hit out in the “Whites vs. Greens” rivalry.  The week saw continued improvement in the skills shown by the boys.  Most noticeable this week was the willingness to quickly move the ball on and often by hand.  Very few players caught holding the ball, but one or two illegal disposals as the tackles were pretty solid. 

We made two awards at the end of the game.  Firstly, the trophy for the Best and Fairest went to Jamie Hope.  He had a consistent series and showed he is developing an allround game with great runs, fantastic foot skills and a desire to bring his team mates into the game.  The coaches started getting him to kick opposite foot to further develop his skills!!  In terms of the best player on the ground for the final game, the President’s Medal went to Caleb Woodward.  Shining off a back pocket or flank, he runs straight at the ball and lays some crunching tackles.  He looks carefully before disposing on the ball and will also fly looking to take pack marks.  Caleb plays cameo roles up forward, where again his physical pressure often leads to his team getting possession.  He has a bit of white line fever like most the boys, which is great to see such passion and a strong desire to compete.  Honourable mentions to Max, Brayden and Jacob, who all played well on the final day.

All said and done, a fantastic few weeks for the boys running around at AIS.  They clearly improved as players and applied many of the skills acquired during Auskick.

6+ grades: Andrew Clough

Numbers were slightly down on the weekend with 26 boys in attendance but the there were enough to play out the final week of the league between the Makos, Hammerheads and Tigers.  The standard of football displayed across all 26 boys continues to please, both in individual skills and in a genuine team dynamic with players weighing multiple channels to dispose the ball and there being no hesitation to give the ball to one of the younger players if they present the best option for space.  The intensity of the defensive play continues to make open shots at goal a very rare commodity, the determination of one of the younger players, Hunter, in this respect, is really a standout.  In terms of results; in Match, the Hammerheads defeated the Makos 46 to 14, Match II saw the Tigers defeat the Hammerheads 27 to 12 and Match III was settled by a set shot at goal (after the siren) being touched off the mark, to see the Makos defeat the Tigers 21 to 20. So there you have it - three quality matches and each team emerged with one win apiece.  In terms of player voting, Snowy, Nick & Michael each scored 2 votes, Remy, Jack and Jackson secured one vote each.  This weekend sees the finals so boys, off to YouTube and dig out some vintage footy tapes of your favourite team to get you into the zone.  As for this weekend in the words of the great John Kennedy  - "Don't think, don't hope, do! Do something! Come off the ground and say 'I did this, I shepherded, I played on. At least I did something".

Below are the results of the season.

As we can see it was a very close year and results fluctuated on which players turned up so we hope to see everyone there this week.
