The Singleton Roosters celebrated a 100-point win over Nelson Bay at Rose Point Park on Saturday.

The home side entered the first break with a 7.4 (46) to 0.0 (0) lead and never looked back.

Singleton’s star duo Andrew Scott (2019 Davey medallist) and Alex Mitchell (2016 Granland medallist) finished with six goals each.

THE A-TEAM: Spearheads Alex Tigani, Alex Mitchell and Andrew Scott finished with an A+ effort of 13 goals between them.

Defenders Samuel Howard and Mitchell Gaffney were also named in the best and playing coach Jed Ellis-Cluff also starred from start to finish.

“We needed to win by 60-points or more to get the percentage over 100 after our loss to Newcastle City,” Ellis-Cluff told The Hunter River Times.

THE LEADER: Singleton coach Jed Ellis-Cluff pictured in the final quarter of Saturday’s 100-point win.

“So I was pleased with today, our boys did well and we also saw Cameron McClelland and Alex Tigani (both 26) kick their first goal in first grade exactly two years after they made their debut (ironically against Nelson Bay).”

“So did Zac Gayfer in only his second game for the club.”

The Roosters will now travel to Max McMahon Oval this Saturday for the Bryan Childs Shield memorial game against the winless Maitland Saints.

The match will be live streamed from 2pm.
