Trial Game v Shore
Last weekend saw our first game against Shore and for many the first game of the season, with teams ready to see what they were capable of against a strong Shore side. We had some great results over the weekend and coaches were able to make changes to the structural side of their team. Some of the great results include the 1st XI 1-0 win, 2nd XI 2-1 win, 3rd XI 3-0 win, 4th XI 2-0 win, 10As 3-1 win, 10Bs 4-1 win, 10Cs 7-0 win, 10Ds 5-0 win, 7Bs 3-0 win, 7Cs 3-1 win. These are some great results, with many teams setting the benchmark high before the CAS Season.
CAS Round 1 v Knox
On the return of term 2 players in year 7, 8 and 9 will have one training session on Wednesday and the Year 10 and Opens will have training Tuesday and Thursday afternoon before our first round of CAS on the 5/5. This is a home game, meaning Year 7, 10 and opens are at Queens Park and Year 8 and 9 are at Curagul fields at Knox. A reminder that players a required to wear the correct playing gear for the games. This includes Waverley jersey, blue shorts, Waverley socks, shin pads and boots. There is also a law change from last year to football which requires anything over the sock to be the same colour as the sock this means tape and shin pad straps need to be a blue or the referee can ask for them to be taken off. Please also ensure that only Waverley gear is worn to the game. If any player is wearing non-Waverley gear it will be recorded and they will be asked to remove it.
