THE first of two byes for the VAFA this King’s Birthday weekend sees Prahran going into the break with a healthy six wins, two losses scorecard.

On Monday night, our players took the opportunity to get their first look at their newly developed home for next season at Toorak Park.

It was an impressive sight, with our players in their ‘retro’ jumpers.

Coach Craig Milward has given players the rest of the week off as a reward for last Saturday’s win against Old Peninsula, with training to resume on Wednesday, 12 June, in preparation for the home game against Therry Penola.

THE boys lodged their first win in Division 1 against East Sandringham in what was another strong display of teamwork and determination.

In a tight contest all day, with Prahran depleted and down to 17 men, they dug deep, repelled numerous attacks, and held on for an emphatic win.

Nick Phimister continued his excellent form in defence, constantly repelling East Sandy attacks. Harry Tozer played his best game for the Two Blues on the wing, and Marco Verona showed his classy finishing ability up forward.

We look forward to regaining many injured players after this week’s bye as we move into the second half of the season.

PRAHRAN 2-2 -3 7-4 10-4 (64) 
EAST SANDRINGHAM 1-2 2-4 4-11 7-13 (55) 

Goals: Verona 3, Taylor 2, Vile 2, Nuttall 2, Maher  
Best: Nick Phimister, Harry Tozer, Marco Verona. 


OUR Round 8 game for the U18 girls on the weekend was an early 10am start against Beaumaris for the third time on their ground this year. We had 16 players available due to representative footy and a few girls being ill.

The game started with both teams showing a lot of pressure around the footy, as well as being very defensive. The ball played mostly throughout the quarter in the middle of the ground, resulting in a score of 3 points each at quarter time.

At quarter time, I changed a few things around and really asked the girls to be more attacking and get the ball on the outside. They did, and this resulted in the game opening up. Apart from some poor accuracy at goal, we got to a 21-9 lead.

With the rain coming down at the start of the third quarter, the girls again kept the pressure on and, through hard work and strong tackling, were able to go into three-quarter time with a 25-point lead.

I asked the girls in the last quarter to be very attacking and completely take the game on, as well as locking the ball in our forward 50. They did a great job and finished strong, which I was very happy about. Another fantastic performance and I couldn’t be more proud of the group after the first 8 games.

We go into a bye now and a well-deserved break.

Next Week – Bye – And then the first crossover game with the new league format.

PRAHRAN 0.3 2.9 5.12 9.16 (70)
Beaumaris 0.3 1.3 2.5 2.6 (18)

Goals: Ignjic 4, Rush 2, Wallace 2, Hoban 1
Best: Rush, Williams, Ignjic, Wallace, Dowling, Griffin
