Football Season Wrap Up

From Convenor of Football, Stephen Wilmot

While looking back at the 2019 season I was amazed by how far football has come at the College. Last year I said it was great to see the 1st XI run out onto Queens Park 1, this year we were able to see the Prep 1st football get to have the same experience as they were able to play on QP1. We also had the 1st XI win the St Andrews Cup at the start of the season in a two-day competition and progress to the quarter-finals of the CIS Cup. During the season we also had the opportunity to run a referees course which saw 15 Waverley boys take part in the one-day course and most referee some games for the school.

Last Friday was the annual Football Presentation Night which was a great night for all with the biggest number of attendees football has had. The night would not have been possible without the help of the football supporters club and the parents who gave up some of their time to set up and cook the BBQ for the night. I would like to say a big thank you to the supporters club members Lee Killigrew, Rowena Marsh-Cashman, Karen Roach and Jason Williams who organised the night and to the helpers on the night, Stacey Cail, George and Helen Candi, Rod and Michelle Forrest, Joe and Olimpia Mazza, Mila Palacio and Tony and anyone else who I may have missed. Lastly a huge thank you needs to go to Pia Killigrew who has designed all the flyers, gifts and various other promotional information for football. On the night we celebrated the achievements of all teams and presented awards to the Junior and Senior School teams. Please see below the full list of award winners. A big congratulations to the 8Bs and Anthony Candi for going through as CAS undefeated, CAS premiers and Rizzo Cup winners. Also, congratulations to all award winners and I look forward to seeing everyone again next winter at Queens Park.
