Team Photos: 30-31 May, 3 June

Say Cheese! Team Photos

This year, we’ll be trialling an online booking system for club photos, similar to that used by schools. Photos will be taken at Drummoyne Oval games on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 May. There is a backup day on Wednesday 3 June at Drummoyne Oval.

Managers will be provided with photo envelopes to distribute. If you want to order by cash or cheque, fill these in and return to your manager BEFORE photo day.

Alternatively, you can order online. Go to and enter the online code: NT8 T2A YM6.

Select your team and order your package. Follow up with an email to your manager, so they know they don’t have to chase you.

Please note: credit card payments can only be made online, also if you order AFTER photo day, there’s an additional re-order fee applied, so get your orders in beforehand.


U13-Div 3 v Manly: Round One

U13-Div 3 v Manly: Round One

Twenty Cannons boys turned-out for the U13-Dv 3 team on a warm and sunny day at Weldon Oval, Curl Curl.

Familiar faces and new faces assembled for their first game of the season against the Manly Bombers.

At the final siren, Manly were winners 30 – 18, but the Cannons put in a good effort first up and took “the points” in the 4th quarter.

Combinations were slow to form and Manly started much better in the kick to a team-mate department.

The Cannons spent a lot of time in all quarters attacking, but an overall return of two goals and six behinds to Manly’s five goals straight was the difference. Four of the Manly goals came from set shots right in front of the big sticks while the Cannons scorers (Martti Z and Ethan W) kicked on the run.

From the sideline, joint coaches Dave and Nick moved the players around and tried to keep the midfielders out of the goal square to allow our forwards more space to score. Plenty to work with, plenty to be happy about and plenty of smiling players at game’s end. Two new players, Thomas and Gabe played very well.

Weldon Oval was in good condition, the Manly team was a pleasure to play against, and it was an all-round good start to the competitive season.

U13-2 Round One

U13/2 Cannons v St Ives, Acron Oval St Ives: Round One

After weeks of pre-season training it was great to finally be able to get onto the paddock against St Ives. A glorious day presented itself after rain the night before, which meant conditions for footy were almost perfect.

Prior to the game all players were presented with their jumpers for the season and our leadership group announced. This season’s leaders being; Joshua L, Jaden  & Jack H. I ask all players get behind your leadership group and support their actions.

The boys played with gusto, energy, commitment and a desire to play hard footy resulting in a 42-30 score-line at three quarter time. Our ability to win the ball out of the centre was significant, however we did not take advantage of our dominate field position in the first three quarters to kick a winning score.

In the final quarter our boys ran out of legs and St Ives kicked 6 goals to nil, eventually running over the top of us.

Congratulations to Joel, who won the coach’s man of the match award in Round One. Joel’s silky skills were evident whenever he gained possession, delivering the ball with precision and he kept his feet all day.

Welcome to Cassidy, Sam, Joshua B. & George who played their first game of AFL for the club.

An acceptable start to the season, but one we must learn from.

Wet Weather Procedures

AFL is a winter sport, so we sometimes play and train in the rain. (Mud is fun!) Here are some general guidelines about wet weather procedures.

Mid-week training and wet weather. The Canada Bay Council decides on the status of grounds about 2pm and we put wet weather information out as soon as possible – usually by about 2.30pm – on this website, on Facebook and through Twitter.

Grounds are closed if they are too wet and liable to be damaged – so sometimes they are closed in bright sunshine if there’s been rain earlier in the week; sometimes they are open, even though it is raining.

If there’s no word, training is on.

If you’d like to check the status of fields for yourself, then you can do so through the Council’s wet weather line. Details are here:

Games and wet weather. If we’re at home, a decision on ground status is usually made by the Canada Bay Council late Friday afternoon for games on Saturday. On occasions, a second inspection may be organised on Saturday afternoon for Sunday games. We’ll advise on ground closures as soon as we can through the website, Facebook and Twitter.

If we’re playing away, the home club will notify us that games are cancelled, then we’ll notify you through the usual channels (it just sometimes takes a little longer).

If grounds are open, but the ground manager of the home club makes a decision that it is unsafe to play on the day, he or she can cancel play.

Please be aware that on game day, individual teams cannot make a decision to cancel because of the weather. If the team doesn’t turn up, it is counted as a forfeit. There are other teams, umpires, grounds managers and canteen volunteers all waiting for you.

If you just don’t know whether or not the game is on, please go to the ground anyway. The gumboots, umbrellas and raincoats may be a hassle, but playing in the wet can be a fun or, at the very least, memorable experience for your child!
