MEN’S SEMIS THIS WEEKEND!

A special thank you to Craig Brooke who took time out on the weekend to repair the wheels on the spare goals that are used by the U11 matches – a helping hand is always appreciated!
Last week we celebrated 3 wonderful juniors who reached their 50 games milestone. Congratulations to Sebastian Flood and Ella Murphy from U13 Gold and Kiara Phan from U11 Gold. Keep up the great work legends!
GREAT WORK U11 MAROON!
The U11 Maroon team wrapped up their season on Saturday morning. Most of these wonderful kids were new to the U11s age group, and some only in their second year of hockey. They have all progressed so well individually and collectively as a team with lots of laughs and smiles along the way.
Well done to the team: Catelyn Anggadi, Abigail Blythe, Jayden Chow, Elsie Duggan, Rosie Fung, Blake Learmonth, Thomas O’Connor, Joshua Ratcliffe, Makenna Turnbull and super sub Oliver Durance.
Big thanks to Coach David Ratcliffe and Manager Steph Tse for leading the team this season. The time you have put into the development of the team and the week to week management is hugely appreciated by the players, families and the Club Committee.
CONGRATULATIONS U13 GOLD – MINOR PREMIERS!
Our awesome U13 Gold team have successfully claimed the minor premiership in the U13B competition. Under the leadership of Coaches Stuart Turnbull and Emily Shipton this team has gone from strength to strength. The season started off a little wobbly but they finished super strong with 5 wins and a draw to wrap up the regular season. Bring on the major semi-final on Friday night!
GOOD LUCK U11 & U13 GOLD – SEMI FINALS THIS WEEKEND!
We have 2 Junior teams kicking off their finals campaign this weekend. If you are out and about come down and cheer on these wonderful teams. GOOD LUCK to all players, play hard and enjoy the finals!

A brilliant weekend at Cintra this past weekend. All those giving your time in the canteen are helping to build a fantastic reputation for Cintra across the clubs and teams that play and spectate there with great service and a welcoming vibe. This is evidenced by just how much stock we are getting through each weekend!
Firstly a big shout out to Hidde for getting his wonderful pies to Cintra on Friday when on Friday morning I realised I’d forgotten to order them. Phew!! Thanks to Chris Thuell for covering the full shift on Friday with wonderful help from the U13/15/17 parents. Thanks to the enthusiasm and eagerness of the Minkey parents for kicking off a busy Saturday morning backed up by the U11 Gold parents, as well as Juliette Triccas, Emily Shipton and Julie Prolov allowing the U11 Maroon parents a well deserved morning off! Thanks to the super effort of Men’s 1st, 2nd and 5th Grade for covering a big afternoon/evening! Thanks to those that jumped in and helped Wal on Sunday after Wal wasn’t feeling well following a short stint in hospital during the week prior. It’s fantastic to see people so willing to jump in a help out.
It’s going to be a particularly huge Saturday this weekend, kicking off with a Minkey Gala morning involving 18 x U7/U9 teams and now 2 x U11 matches that will pretty much run right into the start of Briars/Glebe PL3-PL1 and 2 x SL6 finals matches. For those teams on duty, please don’t be shy in letting your team manager know where you can help…we’re going to need you this weekend!
Below is the roster for this weekend. Next weekend is still TBC based on some finals matches needing to be confirmed.
