Welcome to 2022 U12's

Season 2022 is upon us and we are super excited! A huge thanks to Geoff (Hamish) for stepping up into the head coach role this year, with Mark (Raf) assisting. Much appreciated. And a massive thank you to Nate (Otis) who unfortunately cannot coach this year. We have a huge contingent of returning players and some new faces. It’s going to be a great year!  (To relive the past, here are the 2021 highlights).

R7: Fitzroy vs Brunswick

22 May 2022
The local derby against Brunswick was a ripper! The Dragons played hosts this time, on their large Gillon Oval and turned up the heat from the first bounce. The first three quarters were an arm wrestle, with both teams gaining the ascendency at various times. The teams couldn’t be split at the final break, the scores even at 33 a piece. It must have been one heck of a speech by Coach Geoff at 3/4 time, as the boys came out and slammed on six goals to one to take the win. Well done boys, finding another gear when it counts!

R6: Fitzroy vs Parade Saints

15 May 2022
We headed north to play Parade Saints on their new huge ground with fancy grand stand and excellent catering! With only 16 players, the boys played exceptionally well. It was great to see them running hard all day and making the most of their opportunities in front of goal. Huge pat on the back to the kids who played end-to-end footy with no rest to notch up a convincing win.

R5: Fitzroy vs St Marys

8 May 2022 (Mother’s Day)
Mother’s Day game at home and the boys delivered! It was an even ball game for the first quarter, but in the second, the Roys kicked four goals to none to take the lead into the main break. It was an arm wrestle for the second half, with the Roys just winning both quarters. Another excellent four quarter effort by the boys to beat our northern rivals.

R4: Fitzroy vs Preston

1 May 2022
We travelled to Preston for our first away game of the season. The Roys started with the wind and snagged a few goals to take the early lead. Similarly, on their turn with the wind, Preston slotted on a few too. At the main break the scores were close, with Preston just ahead. It must have been a stirring speech by coach Geoff at half time, as the kids came our charging in the third, piling on five goals to take a 20 point lead into the last. The boys held on in the final quarter to notch up a very satisfying win.

R3: Fitzroy vs Brunswick

24 April 2022
ANZAC Day round against our local rivals, Brunswick. Always great games, with Brunswick the victors more often than not. But not today! The boys came out hard and fast to get on top early, which continued through the day. Great to see the kids run and run, to maintain the ascendancy for the full four quarters. Awesome win boys!

R2: Fitzroy vs Templestowe

10 April 2022
Huge game against Templestowe, a team we’ve always had close games against. The kids started turbocharged this week, putting on a five goal to zero first quarter with the wind. The second quarter, against the win, the Roys were able to keep Templestowe to just one goal. In the third, the Roys capitalised on the wind piling on four more goals and then held off a gutsy Templestowe in the last to record the win. Very satisfying for the kids as it’s the first time they’ve ever beaten Templestowe. Well done boys! Let’s sing the song…

R1: Fitzroy vs Northcote

3 April 2022
Wowser, what a close game to kick off the official 2022 season. A slow start by the Roys gave Northcote a solid lead at quarter time. Great to see the kids respond over the next three quarters and take the game down to the wire. Unfortunately we were 3 points short. Well done boys, next time.

Practice Match: Fitzroy vs Richmond

27 March 2022
Great match today! Kids played well and linked up really nicely. Some great tackles, marks and passages of play. Dusted off the cobwebs in style! Thanks again Sharon (Oscar) for coaching today, with Geoff in ISO. Like Ash Barty, she retires on a high 🙂
