Round 13 2016 – Glen Eira

We travelled down to Carnegie on Saturday to meet Glen Eira, undefeated in the seniors and sitting third in the reserves. On the large ground that is Packer Reserve, the day started with the reserves meeting a very strong Glen Eira outfit and they were well beaten in most aspects of the game. The seniors were much more competitive in their match trailing by only 17 points at three quarter time, before the Saints were able to kick away in the final term.

A huge thank you goes out to all that made it to the 135th anniversary gala at the MCG on Saturday night. It was a fantastic night with over 100 people in attendance, keep an eye out for photos from the night that will be up in the next few days.

Vale – Beryl Woodford

Canterbury FC has lost a long time supporter with the passing of Mrs Beryl Woodford. Beryl spent years at the club as the wife of the late life member Kevin Woodford, and later as her son Gary played for the juniors and seniors. Mrs Woodford, as we called her, was a lady of grace and with a friendly smile and supporting demeanour. Mrs Woodford had that warm manner and had a good word for everyone. We will all miss her but remember her fondly. Her funeral is this Saturday at Rosebud Chapel, 123 Jetty Rd 1pm.

Round 12 2016 – Aquinas

It was a good day all round at the Snake Pit on Saturday. The seniors were back on the winners list after they overcame a slow start to get the better of the Bloods, and while the reserves didn’t quite get the win, they were right in the game until the last quarter when Aquinas kicked away.

135th Gala

Don’t forget about the gala event that’s happening at the MCG next Saturday night! The ball is always the marquee event of the year, and being the club’s 135th anniversary, it’s certainly cause for celebration. The club would love to see all supporters past and present in attendance.

Tickets are available to purchase online via Moshtix, and are inclusive of a 3 course meal and drinks for the evening. Don’t miss out!

Round 7 2016 – Hawthorn

The trip down the road to the home of local rivals Hawthorn didn't go as planned on the weekend, with both teams feeling the force of strong and well drilled Hawks outfits. The seniors were right in the game until Hawthorn kicked away in the third quarter, while the reserves had a huge challenge ahead of them taking on the ladder leaders.

Round 6 2016

Saturday saw the Cobra’s return to the Snake Pit after a few weeks away, and while Mother Nature did her best putting on a fantastic day weather wise, our boys weren’t able to get the job done against the strong teams of Glen Eira. The seniors fought it out in a see-sawing game in which the lead swapped many times, though ultimately went down by 13 points. The reserves on the other hand were up against it from early on as injuries struck, and at one point were down to 16 fit men on the field, the final margin of 142 certainly not reflecting the improved effort that was put in on the day.

A big thank you to all the ladies that made it down on Saturday to the annual ladies day, a great day was had by all in attendance. Thanks also to those that had a hand in organising the day, especially Kate Kletzmayr who worked tirelessly in making sure the day ran smoothly.

Round 5 2016

The Cobra’s tasted defeat in both grades on Saturday, the first time that’s happened since the club was promoted to D3. It was the Aquinas Bloods that inflicted the defeats on a day where a heavy breeze saw one end of the ground favoured, the margin being 33 points in the seniors and 92 in the reserves.
