Paddy Report 2017, Round 11 vs Bonbeach

What a great day at the Snake Pit on Saturday against our old sparring partners, Bonbeach. Like Pines, our opponents had a number of characters that enjoyed the day beyond the game. We have to be one of the few clubs where the president calls last drinks with opposition, locals and a southern umpire providing the majority ... More

Paddy Report 2017, Round 10 vs Mornington

Mornington at Mornington is always a tough gig, so we will take a 9 goal win there anytime. Having said until late in the second quarter we were unable to gain any substantial ascendency. There were three things that stood out, being Mornington seemingly able to run and carry more freely on the outside, the many unforced ... More

Paddy Report 2017, Round 6 vs Karingal

On Saturday we played Karingal at Cars Street. Karingal are without a clubrooms this year and have their games relocated to the Frankston ground.

Paddy Report 2017, Round 5 vs Mornington

Here’s an interesting fact. On Saturday we played the 5th game of the season and only our second home game. The gate was one of the smaller gates we’ve had in recent years which we will put down to the closure of the car parks as the public works are completed. By the time we get to round 7 on 27th May (2 months of the ... More
