On Saturday 27th of August a team of 10 Doveton S.S.S seniors players traveled to Darebin to play a mini round robin competition against the Victorian C.P state team and Wangaratta Football Academy. They wore the new team uniform for the first time and the new track suits looked very smart. Thank you to African Dreams Holidays and the Dandenong Club for sponsoring the new uniforms.
First game they played against Victorian C.P state team, our players struggled in the first half but after the coach talked to them at half time they played fantastic and all the training they have been doing worked really well for them and they ended up with a well deserved 3-1 win.
Second game against Wangaratta Football Academy started much the same as the first game but it all came together in the second half again with another win. 3-0
Thank you to the three coaches and the families that were there to support our players. Great day was had by all.
