Gosnells City FC Masters
Masters leagues are for players 35 years and over who still have the desire, will, passion and the legs to carry them through at least 10 minutes of football. Gosnells City FC Masters won the Premier League and were Cup Winners in 2008 and finished a close second in the Premier league in 2009. We not only cater to those Masters players that still want to play the game fast and hard as we field teams in a number of leagues depending on the competitive level of the teams each season. This is old school football at its best. If you are interested in finding out more please go the Contacts page and email us for details which we will forward to the Masters coaches.
Another Trophy for Gosnells Vets!!
A fundraising 5-a-side competition was held at Hossack Reserve, Lynwood on Sunday 28 March, which not only saw over $4000 raised, but which resulted in another win for our successful Vets side.
The entry fee was $5 per player with Gosnells team consisting of 8 players consisting of
- Darren Bretagne.
- Eddie Purrington. Captain.
- Gordon Robson.
- Steve Peters.
- John Spill.
- Ian Ingham.
- Scott Milson.
- Sam Milson
50% of the profits went to the children’s cancer charity CanTeen – who themselves entered a side in the social competition. The remaining 50% went to the Lynwood United Youth Development Fund which we use to lessen the financial costs for 18’s into our senior sides.
The format was as such:
- Amateur – made up 10 best teams (1st team/ressie players regular 5 a side teams).
- Social – (which Gosnells entered) was made up of the 10 teams (vets, ladies, corporate and youth teams).
The teams played each other once with the team at the bottom of the league being eliminated.
Then the competition switched to a knock-out comp with the 2 leagues playing against each other 1st v 4th, 2nd v 3rd.
The comp started at 10am and finish about 5pm.
The matches were 8mins each way with a 2min break.
After Gosnells Vets won the first 4 games comfortably and drew the final game, we were placed in the quarter final which Gosnells won 2-1.
The semi final was tight but again battled through to a 1-0 victory which placed us in the final.
The final was played out to a 1-1 final score. The outcome was to be decided by Penalties, on a straight away knock out basis. As the opposing side missed there first penalty and Ian Ingham scored with our first spot kick, and made Gosnells Vets the Victors and a new trophy for the cabinet.
Lynwood Raised in excess of $4000 split between themselves and the children’s cancer charity CanTeen.
