Best wishes to our under 7s who will be one of 3 teams representing the St George district in the Tommy Bishop Shield this Sunday, 9th September, at Toyota Park and surrounding fields. The Tommy Bishop Shield is an end-of-season round-robin tournament conducted by the Cronulla-Sutherland junior league for under 7s teams from many districts.
The successful season of Penshurst RSL's under 19s came to an agonisingly disappointing end when they fell 4 points short in their Grand Final. As Minor Premiers and winners of the Major Semi, hopes were high of a win, despite the absence of a couple of key players due to injury.
Unfortunately, our boys conceded a 0-22 deficit in the first 20 minutes of the game, which they weren't quite able to overhaul. In front a very large crowd, which included a sea of Green and Gold supporters, the u19s fought back with the spirit and determination, for which they are famed, against much bigger opponents before going down 18-22. Congratulations to coach Peter Mannering, his players and staff on a tremendous season.
Congratulations to our under 15s on their 28-4 victory over North Ryde in the 15(ii)s Grand Final at Leichhardt Oval. From the moment that captain and Man-of-the-Match Matt Hartney scored in the second minute of the game, Penshurst RSL lead throughout the game.
A thoroughly deserved victory for our boys. Congratulations to coach Matt Stuiber and his staff on a job well done.
It is Grand Final week for our under 15s and under 19s. Fortunately, the u15s play Saturday at Leichhardt, allowing just enough time for celebrations before the u19s play at Hurstville on Sunday.
Good luck to both teams from the Green and Gold army that will be at both games cheering you on !!!

In 2007's penultimate weekend of football, Penshurst RSL's teams enjoyed a mixed bag of success in attempting to qualify for the Grand Final. On Saturday, our 3 Mod teams, u10 Golds, u11 Greens and u12s, underdogs all, played terrific football but, in each case, were unable to overcome their more fancied opponents. On Sunday, our under 15s were deserved winners in a game in which they were never headed. Their 22-12 victory earned them a place in next weekend's Grand Final.
Congratulations to all players and team staff on your successful seasons. And good luck to the under 15s who join the under 19s as Penshurst RSL's representatives on Grand Final day.
