The Old Scotch reserves headed into Saturday Grand Final against Beaumaris full of confidence on the back of a good week of recovery and training. Having completed a month of Monday recovery sessions and a few extra beach sessions the boys where feeling pretty good on the back of a grueling season. We lost 4 boys from the prelim final due to ineligibility but we were looking at gaining 5 players from the seniors. Plus hopefully Will Strange and Will Carrol from injury. Thanks to the coaches we had done our research on our opposition and new what we had to do to win the premiership. Going into the day we had made ...

Seniors The Cards bold bid to win the Premier B premiership was brought to a crashing halt in a brave preliminary final loss to a pumped up Beaumaris AFC side featuring a couple of recently retired AFL stars by 34 points. The Cards were brave all day, but it was never going to be enough against a Beaumaris outfit that visibly looked, taller, bigger, stronger and faster. The most incredible aspect of the contest was the fact that against all logic, entering time-on in the 3rd quarter, the Scotchies were only a kick down. The Sharks eventually kicked clear as the Scotchies began to wilt after their massive ...

SENIORS   OLD SCOTCH 9.11.65 – MONASH 8.10.58   The seniors ventured out to the pristine Trevor Barker Oval on Sunday to take on one of the best performed sides over the past 10 weeks, Monash Blues in an elimination final. Scotch had built some nice form over the past few weeks, and had regained key players from injury, so confidence was sky high. The message from coach Passador pre-game was to play “Cards footy” for the whole game, as Monash were a team that played hard from the first siren to the last.   The game started fiercely, as all finals do, and was scrappy for the ...

Seniors The Cards arrived at K2 for the final game of the season on Saturday, with the sole focus of cementing their spot in the finals. After a great win the week prior, along with a couple of key inclusions, confidence and belief within the group was sky high. Club stalwart James Long would be suiting up in his 100th game for the club, a fantastic accomplishment from the legendary clubman. Disappointingly, Scotch were a bit sluggish out of the blocks. This allowed Hampton, who were playing bold footy with a nothing-to-lose mentality, to kick the opening 2 goals of the game. Some deft tap work from Max VDB pave ...

Seniors The seniors travelled to Brunswick Street Oval to take on third placed Fitzroy, in what marked the 50-year anniversary of the last VFL game played at the venue. Coach Mark Passador emphasized pre-game the importance of tackles and handball receives as the signatures of Cards footy, that would be keys for success in this must win clash to keep the teams finals chances alive. Scotch captain Jack Bull’s struggles with picking heads or tails continued this week, seeing the Cards kicking into another heavy breeze to start the game. The backline was under fire early on in the contest with the Roys utili ...
