Three in a row for Thunder In Reserve Grade Grand Final

Photo: Jess Hampton

Thirroul faced off against Oak Flats in the WCG Cranes District League Reserve Grade grand final at Win Stadium. Thirroul looked to capture their fourth title in five years, which would also be their third grand final win in a row. For Oak Flats, they made the grand final from the 5th position, downing Coniston, Bellambi and Warilla on their way to the grand final. With both teams in stellar form, the game was shaping up to be a very tight contest.

The match began with both teams being nervous, coughing up possession without building up any pressure. Thirroul had an early penalty shout, but it was waved away confidently by the referee. Thirroul continued gaining momentum, Scott Woods had the first shot on target but couldn’t test Chris Jarman. It was Jordan Cox who almost put the Thunder ahead when he created space for himself with a fantastic touch and hit the ball sweetly but Jarman was up to the task, producing a wonderful save.

Cox once again had a golden chance, but this time he was denied by the woodwork after his header rocketed off the crossbar. Down the other end, Oak Flats failed to find the target, with Nathan Wilson smashing the ball well over the bar and letting Thirroul off the hook.

Thirroul finally broke the deadlock after Simon Ward was taken down inside the area in the 38th minute. With no arguments from the Oak Flats defence, Oscar Pruks stepped up to the spot. He buried the penalty with confidence and gave Thirroul a deserved lead.

Brad Walter

Screen Shot 2017-09-27 at 11.18.57 pm.png

Thirroul juniors Dylan Ryan and Reagan Ogle have been included in the new FIFA18 game.

Dylan, who plays for Dutch club Willem II, played for Thirroul JFC until being chosen for the Skillaroos in 2010 and earning a place in the NSW Institute of Sport program.

The 17-year-old defender enjoyed a stint at Liverpool after being spotted by the club's scouts at a tournament in Manchester in 2015 and he recently moved to the Netherlands on a three year professional contract.

Reagan, who played in the same Under 11s team as Dylan, is now playing in the top team at English League Two club Accrington Stanley.

Also a defender, 18-year-old Reagan joined Accrington Stanley's youth academy on a scholarship after moving to England with his family to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time footballer and in May he was offered a two-year full-time contact with the club.

Super Hoops win grand final in extra time

Brad Walter

21731365_2144259685590491_7883525823252495236_n.jpg

On a cold Saturday morning (16 September), the GPR Super Hoops prevailed to win the Masters Division 4 grand final in conditions best suited for wind surfing.

The game was end to end like watching tennis and the ball was in the air more often than on the ground like aerial pin pong.

The Super Hoops went behind in the first half but evened up the score in the second half and then during the first half of extra time got the goal to put them in front.

From then on it was just a matter of parking the bus, the odd counter attack and waiting for the final whistle.

Well done to the GPR Super Hoops on a history making 2017 season, becoming the first GPR team to claim both the Minor Premiership or League Champions title and Grand Final.

A special congratulations to Rob Allision, who became the first original GPR player to claim two Grand Finals.

Rob was also manager the GPR Super Hoops throughout the year with the assistance of Gavin Stapleton, Nathan Willdig, John Byrom, Matt Bennett and Scott Ellis.

Thanks to the managers of each of Thirroul's All Ages Amateur teams:

Div 1 1st team Thunder AC - Gary Lux and Ryan Davidson.

Div 1 2nd team Thunder DC - James Panteli and Ryan Fairley.

Div 2 1st team GPR Hoops - Leon Mar who is also GPR head of operations and Thirroul fc - Senior Mens Amateur Player Representative, SMAPR.

Vale Doug LePage: A kind and gentle soul

Brad Walter

Thirroul Junior Football Club is saddened by the loss of club stalwart and Life Member, Doug LePage, who passed away peacefully at home last Sunday after a courageous battle with cancer.

Doug's contribution to our club was enormous, especially in the mentoring and development of young referees, and he continued to attend committee meetings until recently.

"He was a kind, gentle soul who always looked out for the welfare of our young referees," Thirroul JFC executive member Peter Harkin said. "I’m hard pressed to ever recall Doug losing his temper and he always seemed willing to stick his hand up to do tasks.

"Even in the later stages of his illness he volunteered to do the barbecue when he could. A quiet achiever who was always the gentleman. Sadly missed."

Long serving Thirroul JFC registar Debbie Crawford said: "Over the years I have known Doug – two of his boys, Tim and Joshua, played for Thirroul – he never lost his cool.  He was quiet and studious, enjoying a chin wag and a beer with mates."

 The club extends its deepest sympathies to Doug's wife Patty, his family and to all who knew and loved him.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend Doug's funeral service to be held in the chapel, Parsons Funeral Home, 278 Princes Highway, Bulli on Friday, August 18, 2017 at 12noon.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Relay for Life (Bikini Girl's & Friends).

Brad Walter

Thirroul JFC will celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of the club with a Thunder-Mental Trivia Night on Saturday, May 20 at Thirroul Bowling Club.

The Thunder will fittingly play Balgownie on Saturday at Gibson Park, as Rangers were one of the clubs Thirroul FC - known as Thirroul Rovers - played in their first season after being founded at a meeting on May 21, 1895. 

Other teams included Helensburgh Rovers, Corrimal and Woonona Swifts, who were founded shortly after the Thirroul club.

Gibson Park drainage: Before and after photos

Brad Walter

For those who have endured years of frustration and anxiety whenever it rained about cancelled games and training at Gibson Park these photos may seem hard to believe.

The top photo and several others were taken today, Saturday March 4, after more than 120mm of rain. The other photos are from last year, after similar heavy rain.

The difference is stunning and will be a game changer for Thirroul JFC this seasons and in the years ahead.

The ground is closed for the weekend, along with all Wollongong City Council grounds, but during the season Thirroul teams will be able to play when they previously couldn't and training wouldn't be constantly disrupted every time it rains.

We also expect the playing surface to be better for longer as it won't be effected by grass die off from flooding or teams being forced to train on degraded areas.

To help preserve the surface, teams will be discouraged from training on ground 1 as much as possible as other areas should be in good condition. 

A big thank you to everyone who helped make this possible by supporting the club's fundraising  through the annual Race Nights or by buying Junior Team Photos and playing senior Summer 7s on Sunday afternoons while the grounds were out of action due to the drainage works.

Thirroul JFC would particularly like to thank the Member for Keira, Ryan Park MP, for $35,000 funding from the State Government 2015 Community Building Program and Wollongong City Council for a $30,000 grant to enable the club to do both grounds.

It is estimated that the drainage improvements also cost Thirroul JFC a similar amount through the club's contribution to the costs and lost revenue from Summer 7s this year so please continue to support our fundraising events and through the sponsorship packages on the thirroulfootball.com.au website.

Finally, Thirroul JFC would like to thank Turspec for doing such a fantastic job.

Thirroul JFC club house break in

Brad Walter

Thirroul JFC's club house at Gibson Park has been broken into on the eve of the Junior Registration Day on Saturday. 

Officials discovered the break while collecting stock for the registration day during Friday night's training session for the Thunderbirds women's teams.

The incident follows a break in at Thirroul Surf Club in the early hours of Wednesday morning, during which a defibrillator and $900 in cash were stolen and the patrol room ransacked.

In comparison, Thirroul JFC's club house suffered minor damage and it does not appear at this stage that anything of significance has been stolen, besides some new match balls.

This includes shorts and socks, which will be available at the registration day at Thirroul Bowling, Recreation and Leagues Club between 10am and 2pm on Saturday.

Anyone with information about the break ins is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 to assist with the police investigation.

2017 registration open from January 3

Brad Walter

Online registration for players wanting to play for Thirroul JFC in the 2017 season will be available from Tuesday, January 3.

The registration fee for all Thirroul junior, men's, women's and amateur players in 2017 will be $160. This represents a $15 increase from last season.

Where a family has more than one player registering with Thirroul JFC the following scale will apply - $160 for the first two players and $130 for all other immediate family members. The $30 discount applies across the club for players in junior, men's, women's and amateur teams.

Thirroul JFC has taken the decision to increase the registration fee in 2017 to help offset the cost of drainage works undertaken on the two main fields at Gibson Park during the off-season.

The club contributed about $15,000 for the installation of slit drainage at Gibson Park, while the unavailability of the grounds for Summer 7s is estimated to have cost Thirroul JFC more than $20,000 in revenue.

It is a policy of Thirroul JFC that all players pay the same registration fee, whether they play Under 6s or First Grade for the Thunder or Thunderbirds.

However, the families of Mini Roos players (Under 6s to Under 11s) are not required to perform canteen duty during the season.

The cost for each Thirroul JFC player in the 2015 season was estimated to be approximately $288, comprising of:

* Football South Coast Capitation fee, which includes fees imposed by FFA, FNSW and FSC
* Wollongong City Council Ground fees for playing and training at Gibson Park
* Referee's fees
* Uniforms
* Maintenance costs, including electricity, equipment and field maintenance.

The difference between the cost of playing and the registration fee charged by Thirroul JFC is funded through canteen takings, sponsorship and fund raising activities.

Further details about how to register online will be posted here before January 3.

Registration Days will also be held at Thirroul Bowling, Recreation and Leagues Club on Saturday, January 28 and February 4, between 10am and 2pm. 

Thunder Division 2 and 4 teams in Community League grand finals

Thunder Blue Division 4 grand finalists

Thunder Blue Division 4 grand finalists

Thirroul's Division 2 and Division 4 Amateur teams will play the grand finals of their Community League competitions on Saturday at Ian McLennan Park.

The Thunder Division 2 team meet Sandon Point at 11.30am in what is a fitting finale to the season for two groups of players who have formed a close bond since the tragic passing of Antony Stott, while the Thunder Blue team play Vale Pups in the Division 4 decider at 9am.

Both teams qualified after winning their semi-finals last Saturday, with Division 2 beating Jamberoo Rovers 2-1 and Division 4 coming from 2-0 down to triumph 3-2 against Razorbacks.

The hopes of an all-Thirroul grand final in Division 3 were dashed when both teams were beaten by the narrowest margins in their semi-finals, with Gibson Park Rangers losing 2-1 to Albion Park City and Thunder White going down 1-0 to South Coast United Blue.

However, with the club's four Amateur teams making the finals, it has been a season for which all the players deserve to be congratulated after the difficult circumstances they have endured.

Best of luck to Thunder Division 2 and Thunder Blue in their grand finals on Saturday.

The U14.2 and U16.2 teams have advanced to the grand final with wins on Tuesday night at Kiama Sporting Complex.

The 14.2 team overcame Kiama 2-1 in extra time and will meet Albion Park in the grand final at 12.30pm Saturday at Unanderra Oval.

The 16-2 team won 4-1 against Port Kembla and will play Balgownie in the grand final at 8pm Friday.

They join the 12.3, U16.1 and U17.1 teams in qualifying for this weekend's junior grand finals, being played at Unanderra Oval.

The 16.1 team also play at 8pm Friday against Unanderra following their win in the preliminary final last Sunday after Henry Jenkins scored off a Cooper Grossman corner in extra time to secure a 2-1 win over South Coast United

The U12.3 team, pictured below, secured their grand final berth last Saturday after goalkeeper Tane Mathews-O'Brien saved all four Balgownie attempts during a penalty shoot-out, which was needed to break a 0-0 deadlock at the end of regular and extra time.

They now face Helensburgh in the grand final at 9.45am Saturday at Unanderra Oval.

The U17.1 team had already qualified for their grand final at Unanderra Oval on Sunday at 8.30am after winning the major semi-final the weekend before and will play the winner of Wednesday night's Balgownie-Coledale match.

The full junior grand final draw is below:

Meanwhile, the Thunder Youth Grade and Reserve Grade will play semi-finals on Saturday but First Grade's season is over after a 1-0 extra time loss to Balgownie on Tuesday night.

The Thunder Youth Grade team play Wests in the minor semi-final at Wetherall Park, Primbee, while Reserve Grade meet Fernhill at Tarrawanna Oval for a place in the grand final at WIN Stadium on September 24.

The Community League finals series will now be played over two weekends after Saturday's semi-finals were cancelled, with the Thunder Division 2 team to play third placed Jamberoo Rovers at Judy Masters Oval, Balgownie at 12.15pm Saturday.

In Division 3, second-placed Gibson Park Rangers play Albion Park City and fourth-placed Thunder White take on league champions South Coast United Blue in a double-header at Ian McLennan Park from 12.15pm Saturday.

Thunder Blue play second-placed Razorbacks in their Division 4 semi-final at Beaton Park at 12.15pm Saturday.
