LEAGUE COACH APPOINTMENT 2019

Gosnells Football Club is pleased to advise, that after an extensive interview process, Aaron Ballantyne has accepted the appointment as the Club’s League Coach for 2019.

 As a former Gosnells player, Aaron is well known within the Club. Since ceasing playing, Aaron has spent a number of years coaching at both East Perth and Peel, and is an accredited Level 2 Coach.

 Aaron is a West Australian Football Commission employee, currently appointed as District Development Officer in the Peel Region.

 The Club acknowledges and thanks Corey Bertram for the time and effort he has put in over the past 3 years and we wish him well in the future.

 Corey took over as League Coach in 2016, after the Club failed to win a game in 2015, and was relegated to C2. Since taking over the League Coach role, the team made finals in 2016 in C2, a Grand Final in 2017 in C2 and was promoted to C1 in 2018, once again making inroads into the finals.

 Thanks to his efforts, the Club is now well set up for 2019 and beyond.

RESULTS PRELIMINARY FINAL RESERVES

The Gosnells Hawks Football Club quest for WAAFL finals glory ended at the hands of Ballajura Football Club last week when the Hawks reserves lost by 14 points in the Preliminary Final. This result was similar to last year when the team lost by 6 points to Warnbro Swans in the same final. Ballajura started strongly and had 5 goals on the board before Gosnells troubled the scoreboard attendant. Ballajura lead by 31 points at half time but Gosnells started to play exciting football and reduced the margin to only 7 points early into the last quarter. Just when the large contingent of supporters thought Gosnells would go on and win, Ballajura was able to score from a turnover in the middle of the ground and open up a 14 point margin. Despite many chances in the remaining 15 minutes Gosnells was unable to reduce the margin which ended another disappointing season for the team.

Final scores were Ballajura 9.8 (62) Gosnells 7.6 (48). Michael Handgraaf, Mitchell Withers, Ashley Pescod, and Tim Hale all played well for Gosnells.

RESULTS WEEK 3 OF FINALS

The Gosnells Hawks Football Club has one team remaining in the WAAFL C1 Division Finals after the league and thirds were eliminated last Saturday. The reserve team advanced to the Preliminary Final with a victory over Bassendean.

Willetton took control in the first quarter of the league game scoring early goals before the Gosnells players responded and went in at half time only 3 goals down. Willetton took complete control in the third quarter booting six goals and sealed the victory. The Hawks fought back in the last quarter holding Willetton goalless but the game was out of reach. Final scores were Willetton 13.13 (91) Gosnells 9.7 (61). Best for the Hawks were Jayden Woods and Josh Hall. For the second consecutive year Jayden won the association Fairest & Best Award.

The reserve team has found form at the right time with a comprehensive victory in the first semi final and move to the third week of finals. It would appear the main problem facing coach Steve Davis will be selection of his team with several additional players available. Final scores were Gosnells 14.4 (88) Bassendean 6.3 (39).

The thirds were unlucky not to advance to Preliminary Final by going down by 3 points to ECU in an exciting game. The Hawks were in front all day but couldn’t hold on in an exciting finish. Sam and the boys should be happy with the result as this team went winless last year.

This Saturday the reserve team plays Ballajura at Jubilee Reserve, Bassendean at 12.35 pm on the way to the Grand Final..

Good luck to Plugger and his team.

Kevin Wansbrough
