Many congratulations to the 45/1A boys on winning the State Champions of Champions comp yesterday!

Going behind to an early bullet header from a corner by Engadine, they dug in and eventually prevailed thanks to goals from Bobby Colville late into the second half and then Pete Blakeley with the golden goal winner in extra time.

Congratulations to our 35-2R’s finishing as title holders for 2017 after a thumping 9-0 victory last Saturday

The Bayern Neverlosen side last night won the Final of the Riverview 6 a side summer (O35) competition. They beat a strong Conquerors (Hunters Hill All Saints FC) team 1-0 to make it the second time that St Michaels have won this comp, the last time being in 2014. Well done to the lads from the O35/2A winter side!

St Michaels Football Club had a very successful 2016 Winter season and are looking to recruit new adult players for the 2017 Winter season.

We will be fielding Men’s teams/squads (meaning Firsts at 3pm and Reserves at 1pm) in All Age Div 2, O35 Div 2, O35 Div 4, O45 Div 1, O45 Div 2 and O45 Div 3.

In Women’s football we will be fielding teams in O35 Div 1 and O35 Div 2 (Sundays). It is hoped we will also be playing in the Saturday pm 6-a-side comp.

We are particularly keen to hear from players interested in playing in Men’s All Age Div 2 (Firsts or Reserves) and Men’s O35 Div 2 (Firsts), however new players at all levels are welcome.”

Please contact us for more information.

Congratulations to the M35/2R team in winning a thrilling Grand Final at Blackman on Saturday. The boys played positive attacking football all game to bring home a 2-0 victory over Northbridge. Both goals were scored by Steve Smith and setup by Craig Smith and capped off a memorable season which included winning the Minor Premiership. The 45/2A’s were not so fortunate in their Grand final debut, going down 3-0 to Prouille later that evening at Blackman. Despite a positive first half, a much needed goal was not forthcoming and a stronger second half by Prouille gave them the edge. At Kingsford Smith, the 45/3A’s wrapped up the Minor Premiership with a solid 3-1 win over Greenwich. Despite hitting the woodwork multiple times, goals to Toby , Marc Bineham and Pete Grantham secured the win and wrapped up a very successful season
So all in all, a memorable season for St Michaels, with 10 of the 13 teams finishing in the top 4 and 5 teams in 1st place. Bring on 2017 and see you all at this Friday nights celebration

500 goals for St Michaels – a fantastic effort StMFC in reaching 500 goals for the season so far. With 10 teams currently in the top 4 we are poised for an exciting finish to the season

In a show of admirable sportsmanship, Steve Green and Richard Hawtin recently helped out the Northbridge 45/3 team by switching shirts and playing the second half for the struggling opposition. A mighty effort considering the pair had already played and officiated in 4 other games that weekend. Rumour has it both were keen to put back on our silky smooth new blue shirts.

In a first for StMFC, a father and son played in the same All Age Div 3R game last weekend – Alex and superdad Richard Hawtin. Alex acclimatised well from playing AFL the day before and not having played football for 5 years while Dad managed to keep a clean sheet! Dad is the one on the left in case there is any confusion.
