Article excerpt

Byline: Lyn Sawtell

SUNBURY Football Club recently celebrated the 2017 season at their annual banquet.

About 140 guests attended including some very valued sponsors, patrons, life members, players and families. It was a very successful season for the Club with lots of achievements to celebrate.

The Club was very proud of all our Junior Teams with every competitive team we nominated being placed in the top 4 of every division.

Our awesome under-12 Team were crowned Premiers, the only games lost by this group of kids was to the team they played in the final, they came out with a positive attitude and played a top game to defeat the minor premiers.

All the young non- competitive teams were a credit to coaches, parents and the club with some not losing a game throughout the season and others only losing a game or two.

We have some amazing coaches, parents and players.

The club also had a Premier League team and a Premier League 2 team that contested games against Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Maryborough.

Both teams made the semi-finals and were the only Maryborough teams to do so.

We also had two Ladies Teams with 2nd Division playing in the Grand Final, and our talented Youth Team also played in a Grand Final.

Sunbury Premier League also won the Goodwill Chalice which was contested by Doonvilla and Sunbury in honour of two deceased stalwarts John Duggan (Doonvilla) and Alec Anderson (Sunbury).

The first game was a 2-2 draw but the boys defeated Villa 6-1 in the second leg to win the cup.

Both games were played in great spirit.

Congratulations to Anthony Mollee who was awarded Wide Bay League Player of the Year while Jacob Chapman was named Defender of the year.

Jayden Bulmer was Player of the Year for Premier League 2.

Sunbury Awards
