Saturday saw us take to the road for the last time this year with the destination being Brens Oval, Parkville, the home turf of UHS-VU. Unfortunately both games went the way of the hosts, the seniors staged a last quarter comeback though it wasn't enough to get them over the line, which now makes it impossible for them to make the finals.
After the results of last week.we now know that this Saturday will be the last game of the year for our boys. As such, the vote count will be held on Sunday at the club rooms. Come along from midday to see who takes out the B&Fs in both grades!

Despite the weather, Saturday was a great day down at the Snake Pit, as the Cobras won both games for the first time since the opening round of the year. The club played host to Elsternwick, and while the Wickers showed plenty of fight in both games, in the end the Cobras were able to get the points in both games.

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.

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.
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.
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!
