It's Finals Time!

It's been a long season, but the time has finally come for our club to have our chance at September success. All four sides have put themselves in a position to go deep into September. The club is extremely proud of what each side has achieved this year and we are super excited to see what we can produce over the next four weeks. There are NO LIMITS.

The games this weekend are as follows:

Seniors VS Caulfield
Saturday August 30th at 2:00pm
Jack Barker Oval - Weatherall Rd, Cheltenham

Thirds VS Mount Waverley
Saturday August 30th at 9:30am
Jack Barker Oval - Weatherall Rd Chelthenham

Under 19s VS St Pauls
Sunday August 31st at 9:30am
Springvale Reserve - Newcomen Rd, Springvale

Please remember that our club is on display throughout the finals and we want everyone on their best behaviour. Please be passionate and support the club, but do not cross the line. We want to present ourselves as a supportive organisation that won't tolerate poor behaviour. League representatives and officials will be present at every game to monitor crowd behaviour.

Entry at any ground during the first week of finals is $12 per adult ($15 Grand Final) and $5 per concession ($7 Grand Final). Kids under 15 are free. To avoid paying the entry fee at each venue, you can save by purchasing a finals series pass for $50 at the gate. This will get you into any finals venue over the entire finals series.

If this week wasn't big enough, we have two senior players reaching their 100-game milestone. Marty Watts was never going to let anything keep him from reaching his 100-games and helping to give the team every chance of winning this first final. Congratulations Marty and thank you for your dedication and professionalism that is always on display around the club. A special congratulations goes to our senior captain, Aaron Pacey, who also reaches his 100-game milestone in this first week of finals. Aaron was handed the captaincy at a young age and has grown in to the role magnificantly. He is fearless and leads the boys into battle every week with a determination that is second-to-none. Thank you Aaron for your contribution to this football club and playing such a huge role in it's development. You deserve every success that comes your way and we hope that this is the year!

All the best to each of our sides. Be very proud of what you have achieved, but be hungry for more. Our season begins now. Look after yourselves and each other. We are and always will be.....

The Eleventh Hour

Round 18 is here. For some, it has come too quickly. For others, it is welcomed news. All four sides play at home this week at Kananook Reserve. The end of the home and away season should be celebrated and people acknowledged for all of the hard work that they have put in through the season. For the Skye Football Club, it is only the beginning. All four sides have a real chance of making finals. All sides have the potential to go deep into finals. While it is somewhat relieving to have the home and away season come to an end, it is also exciting to know that we still have so much football ahead of us.

This week:

Seniors Vs Highett - 2:20pm
Reserves Vs Highett - 12:15pm
Under 19s Vs Highett - 10:30am
Thirds Vs Sandown - 8:45am

Let's finish the home and away season with a BANG! We want all Skye supporters to get down to Kananook Reserve and cheer on all four sides across the day. We need as much support as possible going into finals and our supporters are the best at it! Come on down and pick yourself up a supporter scarf for $20. Buy yourself a drink and enjoy some local footy in the sun.

Congratulations to Chris Rodrigues who plays his 100th senior game. It's an early one but be down there at 8:45am to cheer him on in the thirds. Well done to Chris and thank you for your contribution to the Skye Football Club.

Saturday night is vote count night. We expect all players and supporters to be there to witness the best & fairest votes from each round. We'll kick off with the netball at 6:45pm before getting stuck into the under 19s, thirds, reserves and seniors counts. It is a time to celebrate the achievements of the players and recognise those who have had consistent seasons.

All the best to our teams this weekend!

Out For Bloods!

The time has come. It has been nine weeks in the making and we finally arrive at our second top-of-the-table clash against Mordialloc. In the last meeting, the Bloods crept home in boggy conditions at Wedge Rd. Since then, both sides have played dominating football and cemented their places in the top two.

This shapes as the most important game of our home and away season and we encourage every Skye supporter to get to Ben Kavanaugh reserve in Mordialloc to get behind the boys. Don't spend a day to nothing. Make an effort to get there.

The reserves also take on Mordialloc in the unusual timeslot of 9:30am. This is due to the league hosting an AFL International Cup game between Canada and Sweden before the seniors take the field.

The thirds will take on Dingley at 8:45am at Kananook while the under 19s fight to keep their 'double-chance' hopes alive at McKinnon Reserve against St Pauls.

The $3000 draw will be held on Saturday night at the club rooms. If you haven't purchased a $10 ticket, see one of the players at the game and grab your ticket to be in the running. It will be a sensational night and everyone is encouraged to attend.

The season is nearing the end and all of our teams are well-placed to make a massive impact come finals time. But they will need your support. This is such an important time for the club and we want everyone to be a part of it and help us get the results we need.
