A warm welcome to our new Women’s All Age team! 
St Michaels FC are proud to announce our new Woman’s All Age team for 2019. Comprising of a number of former St Michaels primary school students and their friends, the new team will be playing in NSFA WAA Div 3 and are keenly looking forward to their debut season. Coached by current St Michaels O45 legend Mike Almond, we would like to wish the girls the very best of luck this year.

What are the chances of a footballer being called on to give lifesaving CPR to a player in the opposing team, not once, but twice in three weeks?

John Galicek, a GP,  who is a defender for St Michaels over 45s team in the Northern Suburbs Football Association, on two occasions gave vital heart massage until a defibrillator could be found. At the second incident the team forgot to bring their defibrillator but there was one at the oval.

Mr Galicek said he will now write to Premier Gladys Berejiklian saying state government should oversee the provision and maintenance of the equipment to be used in event of a cardiac arrest.

The first incident was a Division 2 game over 45s fixture between West Pymble and St Michaels at Norman Griffiths Oval, West Pymble.

“We were half an hour into the game when there was a break in play.  I am a defender, this other fellow was a defender and players were saying ’emergency,'” he said.

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

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
