Training for today, Wednesday 20 June, has been cancelled. Sorry ’bout that, but the weather gods have had their say.
The Turramurra United Men’s All Age side headed down to the Sutherland shire to compete in the quarter finals of the NSW U21 Robertson Cup.
They faced a tough contest, however, with only 12 players available to play, with most backing up from the league match the previous day. So the boys took to the field knowing a tough contest awaited them.
The entire 90 minutes was fuelled by grit and determination as the back line and midfield held firm, not letting the Barden Ridgebacks get a clean sight at all. Meanwhile, at the other end the trademark counterattacks led by Jamie Woods resulted in two goals for the away side in the second half. The first by latching onto a through ball, rounding an opposition player and tucking it away, and the second pouncing off a rebound after the keeper saved a shot from Bailey Allain.
Onto the semi-finals now, as the lads look to claim the title of the best U21 side in NSW!

The MAA side travelled down to Henley Park to face Burwood in the round of 16 of the U21 Robertson Cup.
Wearing the new alternate kit the boys started poorly with a mix up in defence resulting in Burwood taking an early lead. However, Turramurra bounced back with their pace upfront allowing them to nip in behind the opposition defence time after time. This led to numerous chances being created. Bailey Allain eventually opened the scoring with a smart finish round the keeper. Then followed a flurry of goals with Miles Dingle grabbing 2 and Nick Pogonowski rounding out the second half by slipping the ball under the keeper leaving it 4-1 at halftime.
Turramurra continued to threaten in the second half, testing the keeper and hitting the woodwork, however they were unable to hit the back of the net. Whilst the boys in defence stood strong to see the game finish up 4-1 and see Turramurra move onto the quarter finals.
Match results are at the Football NSW website.

The Grass Roots Course was run last night at Ku-Ring-Gai High School by Nick Mountford. There were 21 attendees, mainly from TUFC, but also from West Pymble FC, Prouille FC, Asquith FC, Lane Cove FC and some Northern Tigers girls.
All participants walked away more knowing more about coaching than when they walked in. A big thank you to Nick for his efforts which were appreciated by all!
