“Monsieur Mon-trose … Bonne Chance, Mon Ami !”

Last weekend ze Doncaster Sharks shrugged off a determined Montrose footy team to comfortably win by 23 pts at home – “bravo Les Sharks!”  In doing so we have effectively secured our status in EFL Premier division for next season – “c’est magnifique, mes amis!” This victory has elevated the Sharks to 8th on the […]

Sharks on the Move with Near-Miss at Rowville

Bouncing back after the slippery slopes of Vermont, our Doncaster Sharks put in a much improved away-performance against Rowville in Round 12, taking the game right up to the 3rd-placed Hawks before losing the match late in the 4Q by 14pts. Despite the disappointment of the loss, there was much to like about the Sharks’ […]

“Keep Swimming, ‘Scary’ … You’re still a Shark!”

In probably the darkest day of the Club for many years, the Doncaster Sharks last Saturday failed to score a goal in our Senior away match against ladder-leaders, Vermont.  Riddled with player injury and absence from both the Seniors and Reserves – to the point of having to forfeit the Ressies game last week – […]

‘Deja-Vu’ Hurts Sharks in Near-Loss to Noble!

Disappointment was the main emotion of the day when Doncaster again lost a close match to Noble Park in our Round 10 return clash at Schramms last weekend. Buoyed by the recent win over Norwood, and with Noble only one win ahead of us, we looked forward confidently to reversing our 10 pt loss to […]

Yes! Yes! Yes! … Sharks Home in 1pt Thriller!

There were plenty of “thumbs-up” and “you bloody bewdies” echoing around Schramm’s at the final siren last Saturday when the mighty Sharks gallantly held off a determined Norwood side to win by the barest of margins.  Hearty congrats go to Stewie and the team on this confidence-building win, achieved in what was a real ‘thriller-diller’ […]

Sharks Taste “Sweet and Sour” at Cheongs!

Yes, it certainly was a contrasting two-flavour experience when the senior Doncaster Sharks took on the South Croydon Bulldogs at Cheong Park last Saturday.  With fond memories of our last culinary footy experience at Cheongs in 2018, we looked forward to again savouring our mains of choice – “Shark Supreme” – which had proved such […]

Senior Coach Resolute As Shark Slump Continues!

The ladder slide by a seriously-depleted Doncaster team continued last Saturday when the senior boys were convincingly beaten by 17pts at home by fellow-struggler club, North Ringwood.  Addressing the players and supporters after the match our clearly-disappointed Senior coach, Stewie Kemperman, urged all at the Club to hang tight during the current tough times. The […]

Ravaged Sharks Battle Balwyn Blitz!

There may have been a new “miracle” taking place around the rest of Australia last Saturday, but it certainly didn’t happen at Balwyn Park where an injury-ravaged Doncaster took on the rejuvenated might of the Balwyn Football Club.  Missing a pile of senior players with worrisome term injuries, and with a relatively shallow playing depth […]

‘Disappointment Downpour’ Dampens Doncaster!

It was the famous 16th century playwright, William Shakespeare who once said: “Expectation is the root of all heartache and when you have no expectations there is no disappointment”.  Well then, if the “Bard of Stratford-on-Avon” had been peering down on Schramms Reserve last Saturday he would have seen a thick blanket of disappointment descend […]
