Under 14 girls win FNSW State Cup!!!
A HUGE congratulations to our 14 girls, victorious in a tense extra time battle against Pittwater RSL. A very well deserved win and a great reward for all of the effort the girls, Steve and Don, put in each week.
Thank you to the support given by the families of our girls too. Enjoy!
Fernhill Falcons Soar!
As we approach the business end of the season, we have all of our graded teams in the top 3 (our 14 girls and boys are table toppers) and looking good to make the finals.All of our mini roos teams are developing some great skills and confidence and having fun.
State Cup semi final
The under 14 girls beat Seaforth 2-1 in the semi of the State Cup last Sunday. Pretty good for a team that only came together at the beginning of this season. Fernhill dominated possession for the first 20 minutes with Jade (goalie) not needing to even touch the ball. Fernhill’s solid defence kept the ball in Seaforth’s half for most of the time. At about the 20 minute Beth cracked one from outside the 18 yard box which curled into the top corner beating the Seaforth goalie hands down. Not long after that Seaforth received a penalty just outside the Fernhill 18 yard box. The Seaforth player curled a great kick around our wall which went in. The game then moved back and forth from end to end until about 5 minutes from half time when Annie beat 2 defenders to score Fernhill’s second. Fernhill played well in the second half with a number of unsuccessful chances in the second half. Seaforth were well contained and allowed limited opportunities by Fernhill’s solid backline and midfield. The final whistle blew with Fernhill winners 2-1. Onward to Valentine Park on the 16th July! - Don
We wish you all the best girls.

It was a great effort, the boys were dominant and played very well as a team even with 5 players out and about as many fill ins. The goals didn't come easy and it was 0-0 at the end of the half with plenty of attacking football from the boys. The goals came late in the second half with about 10 mins to go.
They had to be patient and really work for the goals as Balgownie didn't make it easy and almost got a runaway goal at the end of the 1st half. Josh did well to keep it at 0-0 given that opportunity and was ready. At the half I told them not to give up and that a goal would come. They went out into the 2nd half all guns blazing, Cameron and Eamon were on fire up front almost scoring a few times and were unlucky with Cam’s effort kicked off the goal line by a defender and a great save by the keeper keeping Eamon’s shot out too after a long cross from Tom on the right wing and great from Eamon. Both boys were very hungry and full of enthusiasm trying to score, it was great to see. Muhemed almost scored an incredible header soon after and Tom hit the upright all within a matter of minutes. It was very exciting as slightly frustrating as it was but they just kept going at it.
A goal finally came for Tom as they kept persisting, and then Bailey soon after again who moved up front from sweeper swapping with his brother with 10 to go scored with his first touch up front.
Max D played that central role as stopper and had an unbelievable game to note, he was somewhat at home in that position and no one was getting past him. I was impressed with how well he read plays and constantly intercepted the ball and closing down the Balgownie attacks.
Tom and Sam being the central midfielders, Sam was a work horse creating many opportunities down the right wing but was a little too optimistic with his shots from too far out, nevertheless hungry to shoot which was great.
With 2 up front it worked well on the day mainly rotating the front players and mid fielders. Bailey and Max were solid in defence and it seemed like we had an extra player on the field at times with Max D finding himself pushing up at the edge of the Bally box and even having a crack at one stage.
Funny of the day went to Levi after the referee explained that warnings would be given for over celebrating with examples of putting your shirt over your head or jumping the fence out of the field, Levi came to me and innocently asked, 'hey you know how the referee said you couldn't go over the fence to celebrate? Can you go under? Lol got to love the innocence.
It's great to see the depth the club has with the youngsters filling in and fitting in so well. Logan fit nicely into the middle, Chad played a soIid right full back and right midfield making great runs down the wing, Jack played well wherever I put him and Muhemed was very keen up front almost scoring that header.
All in all it was a great team effort and deserved the win.
Goal Keeper Training
We've been successful in obtaining a goal keeper coach!
Welcome to Fernhill Brandon. The players loved their first session
Rd 6 - A home ground advantage helped this game against Woonona with a 2-1 victory. They made us work hard, with Janaya scoring her 1st goal for the season & Orbis added to his season tally. Dek was named Best & Fairest (2nd time for the season). Nice to see our mums on BBQ & canteen duty – thanks Fiona, Kate, Mel & Bec. Plus a big thanks to Gus who did the lines for us
Rd 7 – Yes another home game – this time against Kiama. The game was moved to field 2 & this must have been lucky for Orbis as he took a game high five (5) goals, Joel scored his 1st goal in a very long time :) and Jacob scored his first for the season. Shaun also added a goal. Archie was on fire on field & was named Best & Fairest.
Rd 8 – Well, what a game – a hot morning weather-wise & South Coast United were here to play & were on the score board early. Our 3 goals by Orbis, Archie (1st goal for the season) & Hugo, in that order. The cross by Orbis to Archie for Archie’s goal was one of the best so far. Marzo had a great on-field display and took out Best & Fairest. It was a hard fought game, and Hugo’s goal in the last minute sealed a 3-3 draw, the team were lucky to get the draw. Thanks to Craig & Isla on the BBQ, Sharon, Kevin & Isobel for canteen and Kevin for linesman duty.
Round 4 – saw the team have a home ground advantage on the Saturday morning, with our new team member Janaya taking to the field.Playing Unanderra, Fernhill won 8-2, we had a scoring frenzy with Orbis and Koban taking a hat trick (that’s 3 each), with Dek and Hugo joining in as well (with Hugo’s first goal of the season. It was a great christening for Janaya, as she took home best & fairest.
Round 5 – First game this season under lights down at Shellharbour – and they loved it (so did the parents – we would love more games on a Friday night…hint hint to the powers that be)…anyway, it was nice to have Marzo, Joel and Blaze come back to the team, with them all having been away during the school holidays. It must have been just the ticket their holiday breaks – as they came back all fired up and Blaze took out Best & Fairest and got himself on the score board for the first time, Dek was our highest scorer with 2, and yes, Orbis was there yet again with a goal. Yes, Fernhill again victors – 4-1
Bring on Round 6!!
Under 10 Blue
Under 12s – first game 21/4/17, first game under lights
Great start to the season, finally, especially the 2nd half. We have lots to look forward to this season and the boys really showed their capacity to learn quickly. As I said to the players who I have not coached, the others have had five years of my demands so it was great to see their endeavour and their intent rewarded in the second half. When we get the whole squad together, our ability to ‘up' the rotations will enhance our capacity as a team.
Best player tonight was Harry and Inspirational Player was Josh, who had a great second half in goals.
Fernhill U13s Report
Just wanted to say what a great way to start off the new season.
Round 1 - We played South Coast United, a team we've never played before with only 1 training run with a win 2-1. Way to go! Great game by all with Dek taking best & fairest and special mentions to Orbis, Marzo & Shaun. Loved seeing all the team back this season with Emma and Evelyn coming back to us.
Round 2 – wash out
And then the team hit Round 3 – with 5 players away, we borrowed 3 U12’s players Tom G, Max T & Xav F. Thanks guys for helping out the team. It was a hot afternoon game for a soccer match – 1pm at Balgownie, and the team played great. Special mentions went to Jacob and Shaun for their first half efforts particularly, but our best & fairest had to go to our scoring sensation Orbis with 4 goals under his belt. Others joining in the fun on the score board included Dek, Xav F and Koban getting his first goal for the season. It was a top game with many others with scoring opportunities but just couldn’t capitalise. Our second win 7-1. Thanks to Andrew coaching, and Anthony & Kevin for their assistance.
Cheers Bec McCarthy (mgr)

HELP!!....FJSC is run by volunteers. We are always looking for new people to assist with the numerous activities involved with running a soccer club with 300 players. If you might be able to help (eg work bees, ground marshalls, canteen, or even a position on the club committee), a good place to start is by taking an interest and attending a club general meeting, which are held monthly during the season, usually on the third monday of each month.
