We apologise for the delay in news posts. It has been a very busy time for the club with the conclusion of finals and the beginning of presentation evenings.
Unfortunately, all three sides went down in the grand finals that were played at Jack Barker oval on September 20th. The thirds began the day in terrific fashion opening up a six-goal lead at half time. However, it certainly was a game of two halves as Dingley soon showed their class to eventually win by one point in a classic grand final. Commiserations to Ben Earnshaw and the thirds guys, but they must also be congratulated on a fantastic year.
The reserves didn't have their best day and sadly went down to Mordialloc by 49-points. The reserves had an amazing season, going undefeated in the home & away rounds. It is disappointing to stumble at the final hurdle, but we look forward to seeing what they can produce next year.
The seniors won all but one quarter when they took on Mordialloc. The unfortunate fact was that the one quarter they did lose was Mordialloc's best by far and gave them enough of a lead to win the game by 34-points.
Congratulations to Dingley and Mordialloc. We look forward to meeting again in the future.
On Friday October 3rd, the SFL held their annual awards dinner at Sandown Greyhound Park. Several Skye FNC members attended what was a fantastic night put on by the league.
