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 […]

Senior Coach Circumspect at Sharks’ Success!

It was a positive Doncaster coach who spoke in measured terms to the players and Club faithful after the Seniors’ hard-fought, break-through win at Montrose last Saturday. Stewie Kemperman was clearly pleased, and perhaps a little relieved, at seeing the team overcome injured personnel and a determined opposition side to record a tight 14pt win […]

“Ouch!!” Sharks Downed but Not Out!

Doncaster’s tough start to the 2019 Season continued last Saturday when both our sides struggled to counter the all-round ability of strong club, Rowville Hawks. After three rounds we are yet to salute at the final siren but, to be fair, there are some extenuating circumstances behind our present lowly position on the ladder.  The […]

School of Sharks ‘Snookered’ at Schramms!

It was a fairly–dark performance day for the Club last Saturday when both Doncaster teams were convincingly outplayed by visiting club, Vermont.  The Eagles, as reigning premiers and 2019 flag favorites, arrived at Schramms determined to avenge their Round 14 loss to the Sharks last year.  And they did so in spades, winning by 46 […]

Sharks Sunk Late in Bull-Ring Battle!

Opening the 2019 season with a trip to the Bull-Ring last Saturday, our senior Sharks lowered their colours to Noble Park by the small margin of 10pts. In a close, entertaining encounter all day Doncaster played some good footy but just couldn’t manage to bridge the opposition gap late in the game. Perhaps this year […]
