Last Friday our senior boys got the competitive season underway with a home fixture in round 3 of the FFA Cup at home (Beaumaris College) to a very tough & difficult opponent in Albion Rovers for State League 2 NW.
Pictured here is the dressing room preparations, before the game, Club Captain Fraser Maclaren leading the team out & of course Pete Allison & Gert Gratz cooking up a storm on the bbq.
On a turbulent Friday 13th last, Beauy started their Football Victoria competitive season with a solid home win in Rd 3 of the FFA Cup under lights at Beauy College.
After a unique day in Australian sport saw the Grand Prix cancelled, and all winter sports programmes put into considerable doubt, the State League One side got the better of their opponents from the northern side of Melbourne in a hard-fought encounter.
With a small crowd including a good contingent of visiting supporters, Beauy began brightly with several sharp passing movements giving opportunities which were not fruitful. Albion were dangerous on the break, but keeper and new captain of Beauy, Fraser Maclaren, was only called on occasionally
The teams went in goalless, and the game carried on in an end to end struggle, before Beauy striker, Daniel Jurina, was able to capitalise on another sharp passing move to slot home left-footed after 55 minutes. Beauy went in search of a second and had a couple of chances go begging before Albion made a last-ditch effort to gran an equaliser. Beauy held on to record a clean sheet and go forward to Rd 4 of the cup.
Main season projected to start on 21 March away at Mazenod, with kick-off at 8.30 pm at Kingston Heath.
