FNSW PL2 17/18 Finals Series Week 2

Week 2 of the FNSW PL2 17/18 finals series saw five of the nine competitive Boomerangs teams play in elimination qualifying finals. Week one of finals saw one team drop out of contention for Grand Final glory, and week two a second, leaving four teams booking their place in Grand Finals on 24 February.

It was a  terrific day of results, with four hard-fought wins and just the one loss, with the three remaining female teams going through to the ultimate match of 2017/2018 and the youth men’s team joining them as the sole male representative from Boomerangs FS.

15 Girls: Boomerangs 4 – 1 Hakoah (ht 2 – 1)
The 15 girls were back to their dominating best in this do or die match against Hakoah; even though it took some time for them to register their first goal of the match. Hakoah opened the scoring halfway through the first period via a rare free kick to beat goalkeeper Sally James, usually a 100% stopper of set pieces, after the Boomers had looked to be the stronger team in the opening period. The goal by Hakoah Continue reading “FNSW PL2 17/18 Finals Series Week 2”

FNSW PL2 17/18 Finals Series Week 1

Week 1 of the FNSW PL2 17/18 finals series saw five of the nine competitive Boomerangs teams play in either qualifying (1v2) or elimination (3v4) semi-finals.

It was a disappointing day of results, with four losses and just the one win, but only resulting in one team being eliminated from the finals race. The male teams fared better with both the youth men and the open men progressing. The female teams did not do so well with losses in all three qualifying finals; the 15 and 18 girls and the Open Women. Fortunately, those teams have a double chance and will need to win next weekend to get to play in the Grand Final.

The 14 boys, finishing fourth in the regular season, came up against third-placed Raiders Futsal in the first of two elimination finals for Boomerangs teams on this day one of the finals series. Continue reading “FNSW PL2 17/18 Finals Series Week 1”

Boomerangs FS ‘Loyalty Card’ seeking Club Partners for 2018

Boomerangs FS, the number one futsal club for the ACT and region, has developed a new business opportunity that seeks to build a business community through a business loyalty card where the members of the club will be able to call on the services of its club partners.

The loyalty card concept has the potential to expand a business client/customer base which will in return benefit each loyalty card partner. The benefits for club members may include discounts on services and potentially repeat player sponsorships in future years.

Across 2018 there will be opportunities for businesses taking up this offer to participate in a networking night at our preferred venue, Yowani Country Club.

To become involved, we are asking businesses to support a ‘playing member’ of the Boomerangs FS club with a $350 support package. This package will see the benefits of:
– Returning $150 back to sponsored player/family;
– $150 to the Boomerangs FS club to support the development of coaches, programs, equipment and court hire to build capability within the club; and
– $50 towards a gift voucher saved for a community event where you will be given the opportunity to promote your business.

There will also be the regular promotion of your business on the club’s preferred social media outlets along with references of the player you are supporting.

The club aims to build 100 business partners for the 2018 season, and will look to expand our business offers into the 2018/19 season with clothing (naming) sponsorship deals as we compete in the national F-League futsal competition in addition to our NSW and ACT Premier League competitions.

To ensure we receive support from a broad range of businesses, we will limit the number of businesses that fall into the following categories to ensure we get a spread of services that will support our members:
– Local suburban shops – (Needs to be in different locations in Canberra)
– Car Dealers – (Potentially across different regions within Canberra)
– Tradesman – Electrical/Electricians, Plumbing/Gasfitters, Builders, Landscapers, Painters, Mechanics, etc
– Service Providers – Insurance, Accountants, Solicitors, Optometrists, Coffee Shops, etc

Other categories will be added to our list as we build towards our target of 100 businesses.

If you wish to know more about how to get involved, please don’t hesitate contacting the Boomerangs Sponsorship team email sponsorship[at]boomerangsfs.com

Round 14 – the final regular season round of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season – was played at home against the Mt Druitt Town Rangers. Mt Druitt has had a relatively poor season, and in the corresponding round in the first half of the season, the Boomerangs club disappointingly came home with only five wins, a loss and three frustrating draws. The aim for this round was to better those results and to lock as many teams as possible into finals (noting that a couple were also relying on other results). Teams not in finals contention were also looking to finish off the season with a solid performance.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
The travelling Town Rangers were without development squad teams, so the Boomerangs 10 boys played the 11/12 girls – which is always a cracker of a match, closely fought and intense. The 11 boys played a match against a Gungahlin team. We thank Gungahlin FC for the support they have given the Boomerangs this season by making their young teams available to play our development squads when visiting teams did not bring their squads with them (or they had no under-age development programs).

12 Boys: Boomerangs 1 – 6 Mt Druitt Town Rangers (ht 0 – 4)
The 12 boys match was Continue reading “FNSW PL2 R14 Wrap”

Round 13 of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season – the second last of the season – was played away in Alexandria, Sydney against the Club Championship leading Eastern Suburbs Hakoah.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
There were two development squad matches played against Hakoah which mixed up the players somewhat. The 10 boys joined the 11/12 girls to play against the Hakoah 11/12 girls and the 11 boys played against their Hakoah equivalents.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 0 – 9 Hakoah (ht 0 – 4)
The 12 boys were Continue reading “FNSW PL2 R13 Wrap”

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
There were two development squad matches played as a precursor to the competitive matches against Raiders. The first was an intra-cub match between the 10 development boys and the 11/12 development girls followed by the 11 boys playing in a terrifically competitive match against local side Gungahlin.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 1 – 0 Raiders (ht 0 – 0)

Round eleven of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season was away at the Hornsby PCYC taking on the Phoenix Futsal Club.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
There were two development squad matches played against Phoenix prior to the competitive matches – the 11/12 girls and the 10/11 boys. Both games were highly entertaining and of good quality – and it is apparent that these young Boomers are developing well as the season progresses. The girls dominated their match – especially in the second half, with the Phoenix boys putting up a strong effort against the travelling Boomerangs youngsters.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 2 – 1 Phoenix (ht 1 – 1)
The 12 boys were up against a Phoenix team that has struggled this season,  but still had some quality players hitting the court.  The boys were first to score and managed to hold that lead till around halfway through the first period. One all at the break and the match was there for the taking by both teams.  The second half was Continue reading “FNSW PL2 R11 Wrap”

Round ten of the 17/18 Premier League 2 season was an away round to the Central Coast to take on the Central Coast Futsal Club at the Peninsula Leisure Centre in Woy Woy.

To check out the photos of this round head to the Boomerangs photo site.

Development Squad Matches
There were no development squad matches played against Central Coast opposition this round.

12 Boys: Boomerangs 5 – 11 Central Coast (ht 2-5)
The 12 boys were involved in a goal-fest featuring 16 goals to open the day’s proceedings in Woy Woy. They matched it early with the home team, but let down their guard a little to concede easy goals to be down at the break 2-5. After scoring early in the second half the boys then conceded a couple close together giving the momentum back to the home team – which they capitalised by going on a scoring rampage in the final ten minutes. The Boomers boys will be Continue reading “FNSW PL2 R10 Wrap”
