Rovers smile at the Crocodiles

The team took on the Clovelly Crocodiles, whom we defeated by 40 points three weeks earlier, and there was a quiet confidence amongst the parents and supporters that if the kids played to their potential we would be toasting another premiership for the club.

The game kicked off and a few mistakes allowed Clovelly to score within the first minute of the game. Our kids hit back and it was a very even first period of play and Clovelly held a slender 4-point lead.

The second period was end-to-end football and our kids took a 2-point lead heading into the final third period. It was this period of play which saw the mighty Rovers kids flex their muscles and run away with the game to score a convincing and well-earned grand final premiership, played in great spirit.

Over 250 Rovers club mates, supporters and family members made the trip to Redfern Oval to cheer on the kids and their vocal support throughout the game helped spur the kids to victory.

The winning trophy was presented by sporting superstar Anthony Mundine. It was a special moment for the Mundine family as Anthony Jnr was named the official Man of the Match.

Well done to all the kids and the coaching staff of the team!

As the season heads into the last few rounds the Rovers A grade and Under 16s have already secured enough points to qualify for the semi finals while the Under 19 and 15 teams are currently in the top four of their respective competitions.

The premiership won by the Under 7s is now premiership number 72 in the club’s proud history, and hopefully a few more can be added to the list by season’s end.

The Alexandria Rovers boast a proud past and promise an even greater future, the pride of the inner city.
