The Gosnells Hawks league team returned to the winners list with a comfortable 19 point win over Stirling. Final scores were Gosnells 8.17 (65) Stirling 7.4 (46). Best on ground for Gosnells were Scott Lewis, Jayden Woods, Jacob Smith and Brent Phillis.

The reserves were untroubled to easy defeat Stirling by 141 points. With the team recording several massive victories in recent weeks Coach Steve Davis has the problem of finding positions in the team for several players coming back from the league, from personal leave and injury. Final scores were Gosnells 23.15 Stirling 1.6 (12). Alex Taylor promoted from the thirds for this game was adjudged best player with Luke Drew, Henry Woods and Luke Chapman (7 goals) all playing well.

The colts who played off in the Grand Final last year were no match for Canning Vale this season. Final scores were Canning Vale 22.12 (144) Gosnells 1.0 (6). Stefan Little, Raymond Shaw, Aiden Gray and Ben Lamb were best for the Hawks.

The thirds remain undefeated with a 104 point win over SNESA. Final scores were Gosnells 19.11 (125) SNESA 3.3 (21). Dan Fitzgerald, Reuben Barham, Dennis Luffman and Richard Marsden all performed well.

The new Metro League team with some new players and good numbers is developing into a strong unit. It will be interesting to see how they progress during the latter part of the season. Final scores were Gosnells 21.17 (143 Wanneroo 5.1 (31). Best were Devon Coyne, Leroy Narkle, Josh Websdale and Solomon Slater.

The women’s team struggled in wet conditions and were defeated by 9 points. Final scores were Warnbro Swans 2.1 (13) Gosnells 0.4 (04). Ashleigh Rickard, Sabrina Johnston, Elisha Bettenay and Jodi Bubrzycki all played well for the Hawks.

On the remaining fixture in round 1 is on Saturday the 9 June with the league, reserves & colts playing Bullcreek Leeming at Beasley Park while the thirds play Ellenbrook at Ellenbrook District Open Space Oval at 3.20 pm.

It is unfortunate that thirds are not fixtured to play on the same day as the league, reserves & colts for the rest of the season. The next time most members will get to support the thirds will be in the finals. Good luck to Sam and his boys for the rest of the year.

The Sunday Metro team play Queens Park at Queens Park Reserve at 2.40 pm on Sunday 10 June and the women play Cockburn Lakes at Anning Park at 2 pm on Sunday.

May 25, 2018

The Gosnells Hawks Football Club league team recorded its second defeat of the season by going down to Ballajura by 78 points last Saturday.

League coach Corey Bertram was forced to make seven changes to his team from the previous week and even though the Hawks fought hard Kenwick was superior on the day and recorded a 7 point victory. The game this week against top team Ballajura will be the match of the day with both teams level on five wins at this early stage of the season. Final scores in the league were Kenwick 12.15 (87) Gosnells 11.14 (80). Billy Blanket, Jayden Woods, Scott Lewis and Cam Hayden all performed well for the Hawks.

Result Week 5

May 9, 2018

The Gosnells Hawks Football League Team remains the only unbeaten team in C1 Division of the WAAFL with a 14 point victory over rivals Bassendean last Saturday. The Hawks were in control for most of the day to hold off a determined opponent in the last quarter. Final scores were Gosnells 15.8 (98) Bassendean 12.12 (84). Zac Ridley, Josh Hall, Hayden Yarran and Dean Stauborg were best for Gosnells. The reserves again failed to live up to expectations and went down in a close game by 6 points. Coach Steve Davis is confident his team can bounce back in the next few weeks. Final scores were Bassendean 5.10 (40) Gosnells 5.4 (34). Chris Kessell playing his first game in the reserves this year was best with Matthew Hopewell, Nathan Hansen and Nathaniel Reid all playing well for the Hawks.

The thirds under new coach Sam Parker have been the surprise packet this year with four straight wins on the board and his team is appearing to enjoy their football together. It will be interesting to follow the progress of this team after it has displayed such a promising start to the season. Final scores were Gosnells 14.12 (96) Belmont 5.3 (33).  Best were Dan Fitzgerald, Kyle Wood, Sol Isa and Taylor Millsteed.

The colt’s team continue to struggle against older and bigger opponents. The WAAFL Colt’s structure is for 16-20 year olds to be eligible to play in that competition. The Gosnells team is made up of mostly young first year players and they find it difficult to match up against other clubs with more experienced players. Final scores were Bassendean 21.21 (147) Gosnells 3.3 (21). Tom Stevens, Jack Phillis, Aiden Gray and Liam Adams performed well.

The Hawks women’s team performed well but lost by a solitary point to University. Final scores were University 2.4 (16) Gosnells 2.3 (15). Best were Telsha Steenson, Elisha Bettenary, Maddie Briggs and Janine Ragno.

The Metro League team played an excellent brand of football and won a very high standard and exciting game by 1 point. Swan District legend Tallan Ames made his debut for the Gosnells Hawks and showed why he was such a highly regarded player in the WAFL. Others to play well were Coree Thomson, Ethan Barry, Dennis Luffman and Max Websdale.

Young players Coree Thomson has been selected in the WAAFL’s under 23 team and Trenayne Hodder in the colt’s team.

This Saturday the league, reserves and colt’s are home to Kenwick. The thirds and women have a bye with the Metro League playing at Dwellingup at 1.00 pm on Sunday.

Results Round 2

April 18, 2018

The Gosnells Hawks Football Club created history last Sunday when another senior team represented the club. The new team competes in the Metropolitan Football League. The club already has 3 senior and an aged team (colts) that compete in the Western Australian Amateur Football League.

In a few weeks the Women’s Hawks team will make its inaugural appearance for the club. The growth of the Gosnells Hawks Football Club can be attributed to hard work and dedication by its management and volunteers over a number of years.  A few years ago the club struggled for numbers with players having to “double up” and play two games on the same fixture and games were forfeited because of lack of numbers.

A decision to lift the profile of the club in the community by the previous committees has resulted in the club winning awards from the WAAFL, the City of Gosnells and Clubs WA. The club has also raised money for charities, $20,919 for beyondblue and $11,786 for the Cancer Council of WA over the last four years. The hard work has resulted in an influx of footballers wanting to join a friendly and progressive club.

The Gosnells Hawks Football Club has some of the best facilities in the competition which is an attraction to new members. President Michael McCaughan said that he is extremely happy with the progress of the club over the last few years. When other clubs are struggling, the Gosnells Hawks Football Club is increasing its membership and profile in the community. The club is in a healthy financial position and the addition of solar panels, office extension and renovations to the cool room in the next few weeks will improve the already excellent facilities for members.

The Gosnells Metropolitan Football League team under coach Stewart Divitini defeated Safety Bay by 15 points. Better players were Taylor Di Carlo, Matthew Hopewell , Chris Kessell and Kyle Wood (8 goals). Final scores Gosnells 15.12 (102) Safety Bay 12.15 (87).

The league team had an interesting game with Carlisle winning by 9 points after holding a healthy lead half way through the last quarter. Best for the Hawks were Jacob Smith, Luke Chapman, Eric Mitchell and Robert Davis. Final scores Gosnells 9.15 (69) Carlisle 9.6 (60). The reserves have started the season in spectacular fashion with another easy victory defeating Carlisle by 88 points. Brayden Watkins, Nathan Hansen and Travis Sansom played well for the Hawks.

Final scores Gosnells 17.10 (112) Carlisle 3.6 (24).The colts team tried hard but went down by 91 points. Stefan Little, Trenanye Hodder, Coree Thomson and Tom Stevens were better players. Final scores Carlisle 17.16 (118) Gosnells 4.3 (27).

This week all WAAFL teams are home to the Willetton Football Club at Gosnells Oval, Terence Street, Gosnells and games are dedicated to the ANZAC tradition. There will be a presentation of the BARRATT/HANSEN ANZAC MEDAL to the best Gosnells player after the league game. Interested members of the community are invited to Gosnells Oval for a remembrance ceremony at 2.15 pm. An afternoon tea will be provided by the ladies committee for members and visitors at 2.30 pm.

The Metro Football League team play Queens Park at Birralee Reserve, Bates Road, Innaloo at 2.30 pm on Sunday. Entrance to all games is free.

It is not too late to ‘Sponsor a Player’ which includes free membership for the sponsor. Check details with treasurer Bob Uittenbroek on 0412 729 600.
