Power House Premiership Star Appointed New Reserves Coach

Some big news here at Power House with the announcement that 2006 Senior Premiership Star Bernard Brady has been appointed as our new Reserves Coach for Season 2018.


Bernard joins us after a long, successful playing and coaching career with South Yarra in the Southern Football League where he has coached the club across all teams, Seniors, Reserves and Masters with great success including a Premiership and 2 Grand Finals.

As a player, Bernard was a passionate, pacy, skilled, nuggety and determined footballer who played hard and tough. He played over 300 games, won 4 Premierships and played in 10 Grand Finals.

As a coach he was close to his players and worked on developing his teams both individually and collectively.

Last week, Bernard and his wife Jaime had their first child, Hope Isabella.

We are delighted to have secured Bernard as our new Reserves Coach and welcome him back formally to the Power House FC.

Round 8 – Match Reports

In Round 8 action we saw the Seniors back on the winners list as they slugged out a good win over Richmond Central.

Eddie Nyary played his best game for the club and Figs continued his damaging 2017 form, Tal Sardone, Nick Brown and Dec Nannery were also amongst the best.

All in all, it was a wonderful team performance and keeps the boys 2 games clear in 2nd spot, UHS came from behind to eventually run out comfortable winners over Canterbury and remain a game clear on top.

For the Reserves, it was a tale of two halves. The boys played a great first 50 minutes with the 2nd quarter being some of the best footy we’ve played all year. Dom Fogarty and Cillian Browne were providing much run, newcomer Dave “Buckets” Cameron was marking everything that came his way and Lee Johnston (playing his first 2017 game) wound back the clock with a couple of classy goals.

In the Third quarter, it all went pear-shaped as Richmond wend on a rampage, they kicked the first goal inside 20 seconds and the PHAFC boys lost their way.

In the end, it was a 9 goal to 1 second half, Coach Phil Mackney was very disappointed as was the rest of the playing group. We have much to work on in the 2nd half of the year – starting with some fitness!

We’ll get down to training and keep working hard as we head into the Queens Birthday weekend break.

GO HOUSE!

 

Round 6 Match Results

It was a good weekend for the House with the club getting two wins.

After a very disappointing result the previous week the Reserves bounced back to record a big 88 point over South Melbourne. Patty Arnold continued his good year with 4 goals, Daniel Buckley kicked 2 goals as did Pat ‘Kenny Powers’ Hutchinson.

It was great to see a couple of old timers return for a kick in Joe Cunsolo and Nathan ‘The Fist’ Moresi, although Nathan was questioning his football return after struggling to kick more than 15 metres!

Even though it was a big win it was still a hard fought contest with the boys feeling very sore afterwards, Dom Fogarty ran all day and Ollie Gravelle played his best game for the club to date.

In the Seniors South Melbourne really took it up to the House and played some good football. It was a tight tussle in the first half  and Coach Voyage had some strong words at half time. The boys responded to the challenge and kicked 10 goals in the second half to record a 55 point win.

The Seniors now sit 6-0 and next week take on the also undefeated UHS-VU at the Ross Gregory Oval. The UHS Reserves are also undefeated, so next week looms as a HUGE challenge for the club!
