Mens 1st Dvision - Round 14 vs Coffs Coast Tigers


Senior Mens

Round 14 – against Coffs Tigers

First Grade – report by Colin Scully

Well it doesn’t get any easier lads. This was a very tough and physical match handicapped by the officials. A very stop-start match and far too much time arguing with the officials which is a waste of time.

Having been denied a goal in the 4th minute of the first half by Dan Keam the Storm lads “lost it”. Storm had to wait until the 20th minute of the second half before finally getting the goal they deserved – scored by Grant Scully.

The good points are that when we did play the ball along the ground and kept possession we were all over the opposition but not enough of this was on display today. The running off the ball and effort put in by Dan Keam, Brendon Myers, Matt Latham and Michael Turner was emormous.

The sad point was the sending off of Brendon Myers – what can be said about that the officials – nothing, absolutely nothing. This is certainly not fair officiating. Things like this can destroy a footballers dreams.

Northern Storm 1 Coffs Tigers 0

Man of the Match was Michael Turner who played his heart out today.

Our next match is at HOME  on Sunday, 20th July - Storm play Boambee at The Cove, Korora. Reserve Grade kicks off at 12pm and First Grade at 2pm.

For First Grade this match could well decide which team goes through to the semis. It will be a cracker of a match so PLEASE come along and support the lads as they fight to attain a spot in the semis.
