After successful outings against Warner’s Bay and Newcastle City the Singleton Roosters’ under-9 side will kick-off our series of home games this Sunday when playing host to Wallsend West Newcastle.
“Last week they all played very well,” Singleton coach Jennifer Bos explained.
“Robert Jones scored his first goal which was awesome.
“Indi (Bos) played a cracker last quarter and new rooster Sienna had a great first game.”
This week’s clash will commence at 9am.
MEANWHILE the region’s two undefeated under-11 line-ups will playoff in the following match.
First year Singleton coach Daltyn McCartney was pleased with his side’s efforts against a gallant Newcastle City at Pat Jordan Oval last week.
“Jack and Jai were strong across the field, with major defensive work across the team with Nate being a tackling machine,” McCartney explained.
As for his favourite moment?
“It would have to be Zac’s 35-40 meter goal in the last quarter,” he responded.
“He sold the candy to one and then smashed it home.”
The under-11 side will now hope to capture a 3-0 start to the season.
“This Sunday with it being our first home game it is even better that it is the Mother’s Day game making it extra special,” he concluded.
The Roosters will now play Port Stephen’s this Sunday at 10am.
YOUTH GIRLS UNDER 13
A total of 14 club juniors made their debut for the club in the reigning Youth Girls (under-13) premiership side.
While the line-up was pipped at the post to Newcastle City in last week’s seven point loss there were still plenty of positives for coach Ashley Borg.
“The entire team tried really hard and applied themselves well given their inexperience,” Borg explained.
“Ineke Sunderland, Ella Northey, Maegan Downes and Samara Revie were impressive in their debuts and Milly Stephenson and Matilda Ord played solid games in unfamiliar positions.”
Hannah Borg slotted one goal while Downes finished with two.
“The Roosterettes learned a lot from the experience and have gained a vital understanding of playing to their positions on the field,” Borg concluded.
“Georgia Clydsdale and Milla Hauville led well in their first role as captain and vice captain.”
The side will now play their first home match against Warner’s Bay Blue this Sunday at 11:20am.

Reagan Blair-Carmody also ignited the crowd when kicking two goals.

“They have a great synergy within that entire team that I honestly think will carry them to the finals if they keep working for it,” Riley said.

“We started off reasonably slow with the scores even at half time,” coach Paul Chandler said.
“The boys come out after half time and held Niagara Park scoreless in the second half putting 10+ goals themselves.
“Best on ground were Paris Forbes in his first game with Wiremu and Nate Rothell continuing good form from Round One.
“Damien Stafa once again showed composure and toughness at the footy in the backline supported closely by Liam Mouser.”
They will now host Newcastle City this Sunday at 3:20pm.
