Match report - Round 7 - 08 June 2013 - Tigers v Aspley Bombers

The boys were up against a quality opposition Saturday. Aspley bombers are a well drilled skilful team but Mayne Tigers held their ground.

Each week we have seen progressive improvement. Saturday they had to bring the best day and they did.

We have been practising defence at training Thursday. The boys had drills on picking up players in defence and putting on pressure. All the boys showed all that skill Saturday. Well done! It was their best game to date against a very good position.

We saw some really big improvement by many of the players but no more so than Lochlan. Lochlan was a standout over the last few weeks for his work ethic on the ground.

Well done to all the boys for a great game.

Match report - Round 6 - 01 June 2013 - Tigers v Aspley Cats

Although there was no training Thursday the boys remembered all their skill training.

It was a rainy day and the ball was slippery but the skills were shown and all the boys were impressive.

The under 8's came out of the blocks all guns blazing and kicked a heap of goals. It was great to see the boys listening to the coach and take direction.

We were all very proud of everyone's effort Saturday. We saw some very big improvement from a number of players, which was great to see. Mitchell was the stand out with man of the match for his consistently high level performance in the game.

All of the boys really worked well as a team. Well done boys! Great game!

Match report - Round 5 - 25 May 2013 - Tigers v Aspley Bulldogs

The Mayne under 8s had a great game Saturday against the Aspley Bulldogs.

We were all impressed at the improvement by the team.

Much of the training on Thursdays is starting to pay dividends now.

On Thursday night the team practiced moving into space and running around the defensive player when attacking the goals. Both of these skills were evident on Saturday, which was great to see.

What is most important is the boys are starting to play as a team now. Well done boys!

Player of the week was Preston Mathews for his consistent performance across all areas of the field.

Well done to all the boys as everyone played very well Saturday.

The boys  are playing very well together and improving with each week.

Liam and Preston were tuned in with each other and worked the ball forward. A number of awesome marks were taken and it was a great match all round.

Player Of The Week was Liam, as he was everywhere, marking and kicking.

Well done Liam and to all the boys.

Match report - Round 3 - 11 May 2013 - Tigers v Zillmere Eagles

Hi All

Saturday 11 May was a cool & rainy morning at O'Callaghan's Oval at Zillmere for Mayne Tigers Under 8's to take on the Zillmere Eagles.

The boys didn't let a bit of rain dampen their enthusiasm & set about the task at hand. The training sessions are continuing to pay off thanks to Coach Klinton, Assistant Coach, Michael and Dad, Shane.

We saw some great form with accurate goal kicking and excellent marking skills.

Even though we are now 2 players down with some of our boys moving up to the Under 9's, the remaining displayed good team work. 

Hats off to Luke, for going back on shortly after he had been hurt, showing some true Tiger spirit & for this he was awarded Player Off The Week.
 
PS - Casey, Samuel & Luke then headed off to the Gabba for the Lions Vs Eagles game,  where they participated with the Under 6s'  in the Auskick game at half time on the big oval !  They had a ball (no pun intended!) and were a credit to Mayne Tigers.

Regards
Marguerite O'Shea (under 8's).

Hi All

It was a beautiful day at Sandgate AFC on Saturday & our boys were pumped for Round 2 against the Sandgate Hawks.

All the boys played their best which resulted in a number of goals kicked in the 3rd & 4th quarters.
