Hammers Finish 7th After Final Day Defeat
17 September 2018
In our final day of the 2018 season at Carine, Hamersley entertained Kwinana Utd in the Amateur Premier League. The visitors needed at least a point ensure safety while Rovers could finish as high as 5th.
After a cagey start with few chances for either team, Kwinana broke the deadlock to lead 1-0. The visitors then had a man sent off on the stroke of half-time. Despite the extra man and all the possession, Rovers couldn't find the equaliser, hitting the post and the crossbar but not the back of the net. Kwinana scored again on a counter attack and defended their lead to the whistle to win 2-0.
The game summed up an inconsistent season of highs and lows. The team has played some excellent football during the year, beating the champions North Perth and runners up Kingsley and making the cup quarter final, yet dropping points to some of the lower placed teams in the league. A final finish of 7th place was respectable and something to build on for next season in what will be our 25th season in the Amateur Premier League.
The Reserve Team finished the season on a high with a 3-1 win over Kwinana Reserves with goals from Ali Hambli (2) and Maurice Deady. Despite a slow start to the year the team picked up momentum winning 4 of the last 6 games pushing up to 7th place for the season. The Reserves also mirrored the First Team in reaching the Cup Quarter Final in a year when player numbers and team make up changed dramatically each week.
The masters teams also mixed seasons with some great wins and dissapointing defeats. The 35's lost their final game 4-2 at home to Wembley but finished safely mid table in 6th position in North Division 1. The 45's had a narrow 3-2 defeat to Quinn's, and like the amateurs, finished 7th in the North A Division.
The metro teams endured difficult seasons with numbers fluctuating during the World Cup but each team represented Hamersley Rovers with pride and passion each week. Metro 1 finishing 9th in North Division 1 while Metro 2 finished 12th in North Division 3.
The Ladies team were the clubs shining lights, winning the Womens Metro North Division 2 after promotion last year. The team won 15 of their 18 games, scoring 53 goals in the process.
