A Grade Match Report
Immediately after Saturdays loss to SHOCS by 5 points we spoke of not looking back but forward and everything we saw in the game suggested we are moving forward. We are bitterly disappointed we didn't win and simply we must win these games as to be so close so many times this year suggests we are good enough to be a force. It was there to win and we lost it but the effort was all we as coaches ask and proud of that. We just make to many unforced errors.
Our goal kickers were Harmsy, Kouta, Reavs and Ruwy with 1 each, Gordo with 2 and Sam Williams good with 3.
Best players were plenty, everyone played well and some had their best game for the year against the best side in the comp. the five best were Gordo, Patty Hamden, Reavs, big Orrs and Ruwy played a belter.
We turn 3/6 and we can spin that to 6/3 or better and we play finals!
On Saturday we wore black armbands to pay respects to Mitch Molnars Grandma and Josh Greens Mum. Greeny addressed the boys telling us about Mum and what it means to wear the armbands. It was a very proud moment.
Dont always measure success by premierships or games and won and lost! Football is bigger than than in that it provides a togerthness and softens the blow sometimes. A

B Grade Match Report
Accountability, pressure and effort is what was asked for against SHOC last Saturday and the players that took the field certainly delivered that for most of the game. There were just a couple of periods during the game where we let our guard down and, as most quality opposition sides do, they capitalised. The endeavour of every player in the B Grade side was never questioned after the game and the scoreboard certainly didn’t reflect the sort of game it was as our boys smashed in hard and showed a lot of character.
Best players were Nick Watts with a best on ground who has certainly impressed since coming up from the C’s while Tom Unger in his first B Grade game was moved from the backline and given a job to do on one of their wingman that was having a massive influence and shut him down for the rest of the game. Brett Jolly was solid in the backline again this week as well as giving us plenty of drive when he went into the middle, Jake Resnais is starting to find some handy form chiming in with 3 goals and Andy Simpson had another gut busting game in the middle. Special mentions go to Dale Marriott who rucked all day with little rest, Sam McGill who had another good game around the ball and Matt Parslow who played his first game on the ball this year and snagged himself a goal.
Another heart breaker for the A’s who are playing good footy and are so close to busting the season open. With players starting to filter back over the next few weeks the charge in the second half of the season is definitely on, starting with SPOC this Saturday!!

Well done on the game today boys and as always even better to get the points.
Great to have quality players added to the side today and to have Sam McCabe slip in for a lazy 9 with the opposition coach not even noticing him was gold.
Toohsa almost looked like he was in enjoying himself out there today and boy what a difference he made to the midfield (I knew you wouldn't be able to sit quiet in the pocket).
When Deano turned up half way through the second Qtr I thought it was Christmas and to slot in next to Dunkin and Webster was a coaches dream.
The Midfield did an another awesome job with Josh B back to his menacing best and Tom U and Porter working tirelessly in the ruck against some quality opposition and gave 110%
( of course Declan, Liam, Lachie H, Deano and Harry had a bit to do with that as well)
Both our wings had a great day picking up disposals at will and Boothy even picked himself up a tag... Well done.
The full back line had a bit of work to do today and I thought Hugh, Nick B, Lindsay and Brian stood up to the task.
We had a couple of quite achievers in the forward line today with Liam M kicking a couple and the goal of the day to Martin who should of kicked a bag if those balls had of stuck ...( put some glue on your hands next time mate!!)
Big thank you to Lindsay for helping out today and with one wing which made it even better.
Well done to our first gamers today and look forward to more big games from Harry and Liam as we approach the finals...
PS: Senior coach came out for a look today and was very impressed so well done Boys...
Sacred Heart Old Collegians known as "The Hearts" and have been in the SAAFL since 1968.
As per Portland last game, SHOCS were relegated in 2015 from Div 1, finished 9th last year with 3 wins & 15 losses.
Unlike Portland SHOCs have had a great 1st half of 2016 to be 2nd on the ladder with 2 losses Gazza back in Round 1 by 43 points and Old Iggies in Round 2 by 2 points. From round 3 they have won 6 games in a row including a 2 point win over top placed Modbury.
Player to watch: ex Glenelg ruckman Lachlan Button has been dominating kicking 21 goals so far.
After two really good weeks on the track over the week off we are in a great position to take on SHOCS, the best side in Division 2 this year, so it is said.
I highlight these things. This week we have 8 of last years Div 3 Premiership players playing A grade. We have up to 7 "walk up" A graders currently overseas, injuries to a few key players and unavailability of others due to exams. We have 3 players at Sanfl clubs, one of which is Dylan Gamble. In a nutshell, no Gamble, Bartlett, Quinn, Hill, Evans, Harris, Van Gils, Shaw, Inglis, Scholz, Jacquier, Young, Ramsey, Clarke, Wil Papatolis, Simon Brozel, Glen Soper etc etc.. Oh and the General, Jarrad Braley. The reason I highlight this is to say, we lost a lot of talent but we are so bloody proud of our playing group for trying their best all year so far and suggesting to us that we are set for a much better remainder of the season. We have some great emerging talent coming through and the attitude of the group despite it being tough at times has been first class!
So we will go after SHOCS, a good side who we respect greatly and test ourselves. We lose Nick Ramsey O/S but regain Mick Papatolis who is flying after missing a bit of footy.
All the best to Craig and the B's, Popey and the C's and Granty's U/18's. Special mention to Keegan Mcguiness (good solid Irish name) who plays his first 2's game along with Lauchie Harvey & Tommy Unger . Keegan is near always at training and learning the game and his attitude and effort suggest he could play even higher. Lauchie is an u/18s player recruited from Broken Hill. Tommy Unger joined the Phantoms as 6 year old playing 8am Sunday Grasshoppers footy and plays his first senior game 11 years later. Good luck boys
This week we have a tough assignment after the break against the form side of the Div 2R competition in SHOC who will be keen to keep their winning run going. They play a hard running game which means our side will have to work hard both ways and be prepared for four quarters of hard, tough footy and make sure our pressure and effort is 100% from the first to the last siren.
We have a few first gamers this week that includes Keegan McGuinness from the C’s and Lachlan Harvey and Tom Unger, both from our Under 18 side who are keen to make an impression this week, well done to all the lads, a just reward for the hard work they’ve put in on the track.
Good luck to all grades this weekend, refreshed from the week off and keen for a win!!

Quinnys (A grade) Postgame Report
I'll start this by saying well done to Tristan Shaw on 100 games for the PHOS Football Club. Shawy, also known as "The Difference" had his hands full early Saturday but in true fashion fought back to win his position! His leadership and steadiness down back is greatly appreciated and admired by his team mates and coaches!
We played for the Clements/Salisbury Cup on Saturday. Only played for once in 20 years so to win it was great and to have Bruce and Family there was extra special and enhances our culture further.
Plympton had a red hot go at us Satdy and their tenacity and intensity was a credit to them. In saying that Plympton undertook similar tactics to what we've confronted numerous times this year! It's ideal for us as it's character building and we are having really good results from it! I'm very proud of the lads ability to just get on with it and remain hard at the footy. Dylan Gambles very hard but very fair hip and shoulder on a player yesterday personified the attitude that if you are patient and remain ready to strike the chance will present! I believe that act changed the course of the game in what was a bit of a see saw prior!
It wasn't a pretty game but both sides played some good footy! I believe our structure and fitness and willingness to seek improvement was the difference! All players contributed and really seemed ready to play and stick at it! Very pleasing from a coaching view!
Goal kickers were spread with Dylan Gamble 4, Hamish Gordon, Tom Quinn and Steve Williams 3. Singles to Aaron Bergsma, Daniel Hill, Sam Williams, Brent Van Gils and Matt Jacquier.
Our best players were plenty, again everybody had a serviceable game and some were real good. Some copped a spray and responded very well ie Teddy and Rama and showed terrific character to improve so well done lads. I thought Orry Cross and Steve Williams had good games in the Ruck and Forward and wore down a very good young ruckman for Plympton. Hamish Gordon played a great team game kicking goals but his courageous acts and annoyance of Gambo's tag was good. Brent Van Gils was solid all day around the footy and Jarrad Braley was excellent at centre half back. Kris Evans was his normal intense well skilled self and Ryan Reavley solid across half back. Smythy was very good on ball adding to his versatility despite knocking off a kransky 20 mins before the game! I thought our three best were Dylan Gamble, 4 goals and a great physically controlled game despite a hard tag, Aaron Bergsma for grunt and work rate through the middle as well as first class direction and intensity. Our best was Tom Clarke in the back pocket, faultless display with leadership, courage, great decision making and very good skill!
So all up, a good win and at the half way mark of the year sitting 7/1 with a good percentage things look solid! We are continually working to improve and "get good at being good" and a real highlight is our depth and pressure from the two's. Craig is doing a great job with them and they are playing great team orientated footy and seem ready that when their chance to come up comes, they’ll be ready! Popey has the C's having a good year and despite a couple of losses if they keep working hard they’ll get a win this week.
Seaton this week. Let's hope we can all just play footy.

Craigs (B grade) Postgame Report
After having a week off with the bye it would've been quite easy for our boys in the B grade to come into last Saturday's game with a relaxed mindset but to their credit they came out firing for a big game.
Our first five minutes was a bit scratchy with Plympton keen to take it up to us but they couldn't capitalise with our back six including Brent Eddy working hard to keep them out.
Once we found our feet and got our game going the players moved the ball well with precision and speed producing goals from defense by running and carrying the ball. The work rate from our midfield including Mitch Molnar, Harry Walters and Jono Koutsikas was great with the support of Harry Young, Sam Willcocks and Josh Marton who gave us a physical presence around the ground while Andrew Harris rewarded the good work done further up the ground by kicking 7 goals from full forward.
Having a game like we did on Saturday makes it hard to leave players out of our best as everyone contributed heavily to the win. Anthony Flett had his best B grade game this year running several opponents ragged, kicked 4 goals and handed off a few more while Ben Toohey had a great game in the ruck giving our mids first use at stoppages and getting plenty of ball himself. Wil Papatolis kept his good form in the midfield going getting plenty of the ball and kicking 2 goals. Tom "TJ" Finn dominated in the backline creating plenty of rebound footy by attacking the contest and Lachlan McDonald had another good running game on the wing including his hanger, much to the delight of the crowd.
This was a game where we could have let our standards drop, but to the players' credit they maintained their intensity and work rate from the previous game which is a sign that our young playing group is focused and maturing, great work fellas!
Well done to the A's for grinding out the win against a determined opponent and bad luck to the C's who I know will work hard to regroup for a win next week.

Quinnys A grade Pregame
Tomorrow we head to Plympton on what's predicted a great day for footy. After the long weekend where the boys hopefully relaxed and enjoyed their time I think it's fair to say we are all looking forward to getting into it!
Out of our A grade side is Sam Inglis due to injury and Harry Walters and Harry Young go back to the two's for no other reason than they've been squeezed out by Matt Jacquier and Daniel Hill coming back from a week off and Adam Scholz returns to the side after being injured in Round 1 and playing well in the two's last game! A big inclusion to compliment the group!
We are really proud of the lads who've come in and out of the side! They've rolled with the punches and keep delivering to put their name up again! With the club almost injury free it can be frustrating but hang in there as its helping our club no end!
All the best to Craig and the B's, great performance before the bye and Popey and the C's no doubt keen to fight back this week.
Have a great time at PHOS Square tomorrow night, support the club! Most importantly, look after each other and the people who come to our club!
See you Satdy, Quinny.
Congratulations to Tristan Shaw who plays his 100th game for the club this week..all the best Shawry!.
Tight win in the As & good win by the Bs (2 weeks ago) against Old Ignatians. Cs looking to a rebound after there first loss for the season against Kennilworth.
Round 9: is the local derby, we play for some silverware!, The Scott Salisbury / Steve Clements Cup against Plympton FC.
Scott played over 200 games (including 2 premierships) for SANFL side Glenelg, played state footy in 1987 and was awarded All Australian honors in the same year. Scott played Junior & senior football at Plympton.
Steve Clements hails from the Clements family who have been a massive part of the club in the past 20-40 years. Steven’s father Dennis (ex A grade Team Manager) has the Dennis Clements Cup named after him, which is awarded to the best of the junior best & fairest recipients. Steve’s brother (Bruce) is an ex Club President, A grade captain & club record holder with 275 games, A grade premiership player in 1989 & captain coach of the 1999 C grade premiership side. Bruce will be at the game to award the cup to the winning side in honor of his brother who sadly passed away in 1995. The Phantoms would like to invite all family & friends of Steven's to the game.
The 2014 Bulldogs team finished in 7th position with 7 wins 11 losses, missing out on the finals.
This year the team is also in 7th position with 2 wins and 5 losses, the wins were against Mitcham & Seaton. They lost there game against Golden Grove so will be keen to do well against us.
(Ins): M. Jacquier, A. Scholz, D. Hill
(Outs) : S. Inglis, H. Young, H. Walters
Plympton Bs are in 8th spot with only the 1 win.
The C's take on Scotch College Old Scholars at home @ 12:15pm..the SOC's are flying undeafeated in top position with 7 wins 0 losses, the boys will have to be at there best. Hope to see all of the Popeys boys across the road at Plymton to watch the As with good news.
Craigs B Grade Pregame
After a good win before the bye we must be switched on and not let complacency set in this week against Plympton. The hunger and desire to win should be stronger and we have definitely now set a standard that we want to maintain for the rest of the season.
With second spot up for grabs we must be ready for anything that Plympton is prepared to throw at us and ensure that everyone sticks to playing their role in the team.
We get the 3 Harrys back this week with Harry Young and Harry Walters back from the A’s who will both want to stamp their mark on the game while Andrew “Harry” Harris can add to his goal tally this week after having a few weeks off. Simon Brozel also comes in and will give us some more explosive speed around the ground after an extended time out of the game.
This Saturday is all about backing up the good work we have done in the games that led into the bye and maintaining momentum, keeping up the intensity, tackling pressure, teamwork and working hard for each other, things that have got us to where we are currently.
With so many players available and in form it is definitely making it harder to select a side each week, unfortunately we can only select 21 and to every player’s credit they are all maintaining their high standards at training and every Saturday to push for selection to keep the coaches on their toes. Looking at the big picture this is great for the club and it is showing the class and character of the players we have, well done lads!
Good luck to Simon and the A grade and Popey’s C grade in their top of the table clash.
Steve Clements (pictured above) past Phantom player & club stalwart who passed away back in 1996.
