Beaumaris 5-1 Seaford United 

A day that began under grey skies, ended in bright sunlight after a Junior Gala Day that had Beaumaris Reserve filled with yellow and blue shirts, there for the multiple attractions put on by the Club to complement the attendance of the 450 junior players for their end of season presentations. For the senior mens reserves and senior teams, it was about ,the maybe, as promotion to State League One, was a possibility but dependent on the result of the top of the table clash at Eltham, where a positive result and no draw would give Beauy every chance to overtake Doveton and grab a promotion place. 
The day began well with the reserves winning 4- 2  before the Seniors took to the field, noting that commentators were in place at Eltham to relay news as it happened. Eltham scored after 3 minutes, and similarly, Beauy took the lead against an already relegated Seaford with a solid volley from Zach Lemke. 
A scrappy first half followed with no further news from Eltham and at half time the anxious crowd buoyed by the chants of  ' Come on Beauy' from the watching juniors, could see the 'live ladder' with Beauy in a promotion spot. 
Second half began with Beauy well on top and two quick goals from skipper, Adam Hester put the result beyond doubt. News filtered through that Doveton had almost equalised, but then Eltham scored again ! 
Beauy grabbed a penalty converted by top scorer Toby Nowell,, before the countdown started as Eltham scored twice  to put their result in no doubt before substitute Jordan Horn hit Beauy's fifth after a breakaway Seaford goal. 
At the final whistle, the crowd erupted and the club rooms were filled with the wining song, whilst the juniors continued  on the climbing wall and bouncy castle ! 
Next season with additional facilities being organised locally, the  ever hard working Committee, led by Joe Mottolla  is focused on developing across male and female senior and junior groups supported by the new Beauy 'Mumtildas' squad with an over 35's ladies competition under way in 2018. 
A great day! 





Old Scotch  0-4 Beaumaris 

Beauy blitzed their arch rival Scotch with a four goal first half to keep their promotion hopes alive with one game to go. A hat trick from top scorer Toby Nowell and a delightful set play from a corner resulting in Simon Christides driving home, left the locals well ahead at the break. With top two Doveton and Eltham also winning their penultimate games, the season comes down to the last day on 9 September. 
Beauy are at home to relegated Seaford and will surely gain three points and bolster their goal difference and there will be a carnival atmosphere at The Reserve with junior gala day also taking place on Saturday afternoon and the instroduction of new Junior Director of Footbal for 2018, Tony Tsiakos. 
Doveton and Eltham face off at Eltham. If there is a positive result in the Doveton/Eltham match, then Beauy are likely to move into a top two spot and gain promotion to State League One. A draw between the top two will see Beauy miss out by a point. Exciting and nervy times for the Beauy support, but optimism that promotion is possible to get the highest  ever standing for a Bayside club.


Frankston Pines 2-4 Beaumaris 

A wet pitch but generally excellent conditions greeted Beauy as they made the trip to Pines who were relegated from State League One last year. 
Beauy again went behind early in the game , after a shot from a Pines forward was parried by Nathan Silver and fell to an onrushing home player to tap home. 
The away team pressed on and where rewarded when a headed clearance from a Pines defender resulted in an acrobatic volley from Gianni Ellabi to get the locals  back on level terms at half time. 
Poor defending allowed the Pines winger to race past three defenders and finish well to give the home side the lead with 30 minutes remaining and promotion hopes were fading, but a Kieron Kennedy header from a corner got Beauy level with 20 minutes left. Zach Lemke's header from a near post corner by Simon Christides gave Beauy the lead and the final goal from Ellabi sent the away support home relieved and looking forward to the last two game with promotion still very possible. 
Reserves had a good 3-2 win with goals from Chris Neales and two from Jamie Philander.


Peninsula Strikers 3-6 Beaumaris. 

Beauy continued their push for promotion to State League 1 with a win at relegation battling Strikers. After going behind inside 10 minutes to a sloppy defensive error, Beauy fought back with goals from Declan Byrne, Kieron Kennedy and Adam Hester,  to go in 3-1 ahead at the break 
After dominating possession after half time, Beauy eventually made it four with a second for Kennedy before Hester struck again to make it  five. A somewhat shambolic defensive performance allowed Peninsula to grab two late goals although Toby Nowell kept the three goal difference intact after a Strikers keeper error  late on. The visiting support was somewhat dejected despite the win and move to 4th on the ladder, due to the disjointed performance, but the top four are all now within three points of each other with three games to go. 
Reserves beaten 1-4 . 
Next week at Frankston Pines


Beaumaris 2-0 Doveton 

An outstanding performance in very difficult windy conditions allowed Beauy to take three points against ladder leader Doveton and condense the promotion race with four games to go. 
A howling north westerly made life difficult for both teams but Beauy, in a must win game for them, played by far the more aggressive soccer and took the lead after 25 minutes with a neat header from top scorer Toby Nowell after a Simon Christides free kick. A second followed to Nowell after great interchange passing and the locals were two up at the break. 
The second half had the home supporters wondering if the elements may change the position but Beauy again were excellent and had a number of chances which they could not put away but were rarely troubled at the back and ran out comfortable winners. A log jam at the top of the ladder with five teams within 3 points means all to play for in the last 4 games. 
Reserves lost 2-3 after leading 2-1 with only 20 minutes to go against a strong Doveton side 


Doncaster Rovers 1-2 Beaumaris

A generally solid performance saw Beauy collect three points from relegation threatened Doncaster under the lights at Templestowe. A sharp start saw possession dominated by Beauy, playing in their distinctive white away strip, and they were rewarded when top scorer, Toby Nowell, flicked the ball over the gargantuan Rovers keeper to give Beauy the lead after fifteen minutes.Several chances came and went and although Doncaster posed little threat to Nathan Silvers goal, the visiting supporters remained on edge. 
The second half started with again Beauy dominating and a fine passing move saw Nowell slot home to give a two goal cushion and some breathing space. In true style, though, the locals conceded a penalty with fifteen minutes to go , which was converted to give the home side a lift and the game became end to end, but Beauy held onto register their tenth win on the season and move to third on the ladder before other weekend games. 
Reserves also won 2-1 to return to winners list. 
Next week is a massive game against promotion rivals Doveton at The Reserve. 


Beaumaris 3-1 Berwick City 

Beauy bounced back from last weeks defeat to Eltham with a vital win over fellow promotion rivals Berwick. With coach Stergioupolos deciding to start himself at centre back, the game got off to the worst possible start with a goal conceded inside seven minutes after a pin ball period inside the box. The home side gradually fought back and although keeper Nathan Silver made a couple of great saves, the local equalised with a trade mark Toby Nowell finish to equal scores at half time. 
Beauy powered on in the second half and scored two quick goals early on through Jordan Horn and new signing Gianni Rivera to give the supporters some comfort that the points were coming to Beauy. Numerous chances went begging before the final whistle enabling the local crowd to enjoy the Presidents excellent post match meal and interviews all the more. 
Reserves played poorly till half time and were 2 down, but although losing 3-0 were far better after half time. 
Next week Friday under the lights at Doncaster, before a big promotion battle when leaders Doveton visit The Reserve..

Eltham Redbacks 2-0 Beaumaris 

Beauy's promotion push hit a roadblock against a physical, direct and well organised Eltham outfit on the artificial surface  at Wattletree Park. 
Toby Nowell had a shot against the post in the first fifteen minutes , but from there the locals hardly troubled the Eltham keeper. The teams went in goalless, but after ten in the second half, a long free kick was headed home to give the home side the lead. Much possession as usual followed for Beauy, but their hopes of an equaliser were put to bed when a left foot free kick found the net with 20 minutes to go.  Coach Stergioupoulos has much to ponder on before another must win game at home to Berwick next weekend. Beauy remain six points off top spot with seven games to go. 

Reserves also lost 0-2. 


Beaumaris 5-2 Mazenod Utd. 

Beauy returned to the winners list with a vibrant display at Beauy Reserve after two poor weeks with a loss and draw. 
Although falling behind  after 15 minutes , the urgency and more direct tactics worked  well and goals to Simon Cristides,  Jake Rollins and Declan Byrne in quick succession gave the home side the upper hand at the break 
The second half started with Beauy on the back foot but always looking dangerous and further goals from Christides and Toby Nowell sealed the win despite a late consolation to the visitors 
With Mazenod on the fringe of the promotion race and Eltham losing, the locals are right back in the hunt for State League 1, and after a rest next week, the squad make the trip to fellow promotion rivals Eltham Redbacks on 15 July for a huge confrontation in the battle for promotion.

Beaumaris 1-1 Heatherton Utd 

Beauy ground out a draw against determined opponents Heatherton in an occasionally fiery encounter at Beaumaris Reserve on Saturday. 
After the Reserves 10-0 thumping of the opposition, expectation was high that Beauy returned to winning ways at home. A solid Heatherton side coached by ex Beauy coach, Shannon Kennedy were certainly up for the contest and after Toby Nowell missed out on a one on one with the keeper early on , the visitors were the better side in the first half and Beauy were fortunate to go in level. 
The second half started with Beauy on top, but against the run of play, Heatherton grabbed the lead and the home side were forced to press on and got an deserved equaliser via Zach Lemke with 30 minutes to go. 
Heatherton had a man sent off and the home side were dominating, but unable to finish the visitors and when Lemke was also given a red card, and the numbers were equal, the game became end to end as the contest came to a conclusion. 
next week at North Caulfield on Sunday 25 June. 


Seaford United 0-2 Beaumaris

Beauy regained their winning edge with a convincing albeit scrappy win at Seaford.
A goal fromDeclan Byrne after ten minutes looked the start of a landslide but the second from Denny Kulas after twenty minutes was the last of the match
The second half  became tense as the visitors could not grab the sealer despite a number of decent chances.
Reserves also won 2-0 with goals in each half and a dominant display.
At the halfway stage, the team sit in the pack for a promotion push to the end of the season.


Beaumaris 0-1 Old Scotch 

The home side ,completing a run of three games at Beauy Reserve, crashed to defeat against a well drilled Scotch unit that defended for their lives after taking a surprise 15th minute lead 
Beauy began well with dominant possession and should arguably have had a penalty when Toby Nowell was sent crashing to the turf after breaking the defensive wall, but the referee waved play on and Beay paid the price when a defensive error allowed a long ball to slip between central defence and goalkeeper and the lumbering Scotch striker was able to nod home. 
Despite dominating the game after the break Beauy were unable to break down a packed Scotch defence and dropped three valuable points 
Next week,  as the  first half of games ends, is at Seaford. 
Reserves beaten 1-3 after also dominating possession, but unable to score. Beauy goal from returning injury victim Jame Moody.



Beaumaris 3-2 Frankston Pines

Beauy battled to another win and climbed to third on the ladder two points of top spot, after nine games of the season. In blustery conditions the home side started well with a goal inside 10 minutes by top scorer Toby Nowell. 
Pines equalised after a goal mouth scramble, but the locals responded when Nowell capitalised on an error by the Pines keeper overstretching outside the box to allow Beauy to go to the half time break, 2-1 ahead
The game looked to be secure when Nowell scored his third with half an hour to play, but Beauy went into their shell and allowed Pines to dominate possession and they scored with fifteen to go. Again the central defensive pairing of Jon Stahl and Kieron Kennedy were outstanding and the home side hung on for the three points. 
Reserves drew 2-2 after conceding a last kick equaliser.


Beaumaris 1-0 Peninsula Strikers 

Beauy returned to winning ways with a hard fought victory over a  tough tackling Strikers outfit. Missing a couple of regular first teamers, Beauy gave a debut to Jamie Philander who limped off  after 30 minutes with a hamstring injury just before Jordan Horn struck his second goal in consecutive weeks to give the home side the lead. After the break the game was even although Strikers may well feel they had enough possession to deserve a goal, but the Beauy defence marshalled superbly by captain Jon Stahl thwarted all attacks and indeed the home side had several one on one efforts through Toby Nowell and Declan Byrne which were saved by the Strikers keeper. The home side held out to recover their promotion prospects with two home games to come against Frankston and Scotch 
Reserves also depleted, won 1-0 with a similar battling performance. 


Doveton 3-1 Beaumaris 

After a fine win last week , Beauy were again undone by another of their promotion rivals. A lack lustre performance saw the team slide to a two goal defeat at Doveton. 
The locals started brightly and had most of the possession as is the norm and although they looked threatening, did not cause the Doveton keeper any trouble. Doveton took the lead against the run of play when a delicate free kick was met by the marauding Doveton centre back to out the home side ahead. 
After the break, Beauy made a change with Max Dunn entering the fray and their superior passing game won them a penalty as Jordan Horn was felled in the box, and he converted. A couple of chances followed and there looked only one winner, but Doveton struck twice in fifteen minutes to end the contest . 
Beauy will need to  convert the last four games of the first half of the season into maximum points to ensure they are in the promotion race come September. 
Reserves also beaten 0-3 





Beauy bounced back in emphatic fashion after their last minute concession to Berwick last week with  an excellent home win over mid table Doncaster. 
The home team began as if they were desperate to make amends for their draw last week and started with some excellent one touch play which saw Declan Byrne and Tobey Nowell hit the net before the break to see Beauy well in control at half time. 
As the weather turned and the sponsors day marquee became a haven for the group benefitting from the Presidents excellent fare, Beauy turned it on after the break to score five second half goals and run out 7 goal winners with Nowell bagging five and Byrne two. The only negative was stand in skipper Adam Hester leaving the field before half time with what was later confirmed as a broken fibia. Hester is out for 4-6 weeks. 
Reserves lost 1-2 after dominating the second half and being unable to grab the equaliser. 
Next week Doveton away, but Beauy have confirmed their status as one of the promotion favourites for elevation to State League One.


Beaumaris 2-2 Berwick

Beauy suffered the heartbreak of conceding a last minute equaliser to drop two valuable points against ladder leader Berwick on Saturday night. The away side started brightly with a goal inside 5 minutes from Toby Nowell who drove home from the edge of the box, before Nowell increased the lead with a header from  a Cal Batey corner. Beauy were passing the ball through the City defence at will and should have had several more before the break 
At half time, the coaches words must have been ringing in the Berwick players ears as they mounted waves of attacks hitting the woodwork on two occasions. A goal was conceded when a long shot eluded keeper, Nathan Silver, and then Beauy were pegged back although they should have put the game to bed when a breakaway attack left Declan Byrne one on one with the keeper, but  he was unabl e to finish and with only seconds remaining, a scramble in the goal mouth saw the ball hit home to give Berwick the equaliser and a share of the points, leaving a log jam at the top of the table. 
Reserves lost 0-3 with all goals in the second half


Beaumaris 1-3 Eltham Redbacks 

Newly promoted Eltham came to Beauy having made a strong start to their first season in State League 2. With Beauy being unbeaten and on a 100% record after 3 games the stage was set for an excellent contest
The away side started strongly with their long ball game causing some  difficulties for the Beauy defence. It was however a surprise when a long kick from the Eltham keeper eluded the home side central defence for the Eltham centre forward to nod over Nathan Silver in the home goal 
Eltham increased their lead before the break as an unusually lethargic Beauy struggled to make any meaningful head way into the Eltham danger areas 
At 0-2 down at half time, coach Marcus Stergiopoulos introduced Declan Byrne who immediately added spark to the attack but Eltham broke away after a period of Beauy pressure to go three up by 70 minutes 
The home side got one back after a penalty converted by Jordan Horn, but could not get back into the game. 
Reserves played a fine game against a string Eltham side to get a 4-2 win. 
Next week at Berwick. 


Beaumaris 3 - Mazenod United 1

Beauy took all three points from this early season top of the table encounter. Mazenod had come into the game with two wins and no goals conceded. Their position changed within 10 minutes as beauy,s delightful passing cut through their defence multiple times before Toby Nowell slotted in to the far post.

Several further chances were spurned and the the score remained the same at the break. The heavens  opened after half  time as the wind shifted but Beauy continued to dominate and went further ahead withNowell again getting on the score sheet. The lead increased to three whenZach Lemke knocked in after a goal mouth scramble. As both teams tired in the torrential rain, Mazenod grabbed a consolation but the result was never in doubt.

Reserves played well but two defensive lapses cost the team and they lost 3-0
Next game is another top of the table clash with Eltham after the Easter break


Beaumaris 3 - North Caulfied 1
Beauy continued their fine start to the season under new coach Marcus Stergioupolos with a hard fought 3-1 home win over likely promotion rivals, North Caulfield this weekend. 
Although the ground was in picture perfect condition, a strong southerly breeze made the sizeable crowd shiver, especially in a first half where Beauy had several chances but could not breach the NC rearguard. 
Toby Newell hitting the post was the closest they came. 
NC came out strongly in the second half and dominated the opening 20 minutes and they were rewarded with the opening goal, after a defensive mix up allowed the NC captain to hit the ball home from close range. 
The locals gradually played themselves back into the match and equalised after a fine ball from the left from Calum Batey was met by an Adam Hester volley at the far post. NC then had a defender red carded and Beauy took the lead when Hester again ran at the defence and was upended in the box. Kieron Kennedy stepped up to convert the spot kick. 
The icing on the cake came with only minutes left and NC pressing for an equaliser. The NC keeper was playing outside his penalty area and lost the ball, allowing Calum Batey to pounce on the loose ball and hit a 30 meter strike into an empty net. 
Reserves drew 2-2 in another hard-fought encounter. 


Heatherton Utd 1-3 Beaumaris 
Beauy got their 2017 campaign off to a flying start with a comprehensive win at a hostile Heatherton ground. With new coach, Marcus Stergiopoulos in charge for his first competitive league game at this level, pressure and expectation was high from the visiting supporters. Beauy got off to a great start with a goal inside 15 minutes as Toby Nowell tapped in at the far post after the Heatherton keeper had flapped at a Cal Batey corner. Nowell struck again before the break to give Beauy a handy cushion at half time. 
As expected Heatherton came out firing in the second half and put the locals under pressure, but skipper Darren Hewitt marshalled his troops superbly and weathered the storm , before a poor tackle from a Heatherton midfielder resulted in a straight red card  for the home player causing the home fans some anger and also eventually resulting in the dismissal of the Heatherton coach from the sideline. Beauy began to reinforce their passing game and Adam Hester burst through with 20 minutes to play and finished well to give the away side a 3-0 lead. Heatherton were fortunate to be awarded a penalty in the last minute which  was converted after  initially being saved. 
Reserve team battered Heatherton  8-2 after being ahead 2-1 at half time.
