Local Schools play Williamstown Cup   

On Wednesday the Williamstown Football Club in conjunction with AFL Victoria, hosted the first annual ‘Williamstown Cup’ for local Primary school students.

Over 200 Grade 3-4 students were in attendance to play in beautiful conditions at Bayside College’s Williamstown Campus.

The six schools competing on the day in both Girls and Boys competitions were: Williamstown Primary School, Bayside College, Altona Primary School, Newport Gardens Primary School and St. Martin de Porres (Laverton).

The teams all played a round robin of games in AFL 9s format, before culminating in a Grand Final at the end of the day between the best two male and female teams.

In the boys final it was Williamstown PS v Altona PS with Altona coming out on top in a tight encounter after losing the corresponding round robin game earlier in the day.

While in the girls it was also Williamstown PS v Altona PS with the same result and an undefeated run for the Altona PS girls in a great display of girls football.

Williamstown Operations Manager Andy Dandridge was on hand to award the Williamstown FC trophy to the winning teams, as well as provide gift packs to many of the children. Popular mascot, Speccie, was also on hand to lend moral support to the students.

Congratulations to everyone involved on what was an incredibly successful day.

We look forward to many more Williamstown Cup days and expanding the format in the future. A big thanks to SEDA for their help with umpiring and organising the day.
