Mandurah Walking Football Tournament

Saturday morning saw the Peel Regional Walking Football Club hold their first tournament of 2023. Players and teams from as far away as Wanneroo, Ashfield and Perth, along with our local players took part in a 6 team round robin competition.

The standard was very high, with some completive game being played throughout and after all the group games were played, the final was between the Peel Ramblers and the Pipers.

The final was a close affair, with the Ramblers taking an early lead. tactics then played a part as they tried to hold onto this lead by “Parking the bus” in front of their gaol and this tactic so nearly worked, before an equalizing goal with a couple of minutes left meant the game went to a sudden death penalty shoot-out.

Neil Morrison, held his nerve for the Ramblers to score the vital penalty, which meant the Ramblers won 2-1 and win the trophy.

Congratulations to one of Murray District Rangers founding members & life member Carl Duxbury on winning Senior Citizen of the year at the Shire of Murray Australia Day Awards yesterday!

A Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

As we come to the festive period, we would like to wish all our readers and listeners a very merry Christmas and happy new year!

I would like to personally thank all those people who took time out to talk to us on the podcast over the past 12 months and those who also commented on how much they enjoy listening to it. We are always on the look out for new people to come on the show as well as old guests.

We enjoy recording the shows and keeping you updated on the website with what’s going on around the region and next year will be no different. In fact, its hoped the podcast will be released on a more frequent occurrence and new teams, clubs and associations included (watch this space!)

We will return sometime in January, with the state league night series about to start, followed by the Amateur night series competition. From here, the FFA Cup starts and pre season really gets underway.

As ever, if there is anything you would like us to promote in your club or association, just drop us an email and we can cover it on the website, on a podcast or both. Nothing is too much trouble and the more news the merrier.

Finally, you may remember that Andy Jones ran a World Cup prediction league. This was won by 12 year old Ronnie Webb, who was more than happy in spending his $252 winnings in lollies, ice cream and a Perth Glory Shirt! Well done Ronnie and well done Andy for running the competition.

So that’s it for 2022. There maybe the odd update on the Facebook page, but until then, stay safe, enjoy the holiday period and we will see you around the grounds in the new year!!

Christmas may just around the corner, but clubs are still busy getting ready for next season. Here is a quick round up of what has recently been happening at the clubs.

If this sounds like something that could interest you, email info@pksc.org.au

Mandurah City’s state league side have signed Irish defender Aaron McCready. Aaron (24) joins them after playing football in America for the last 5 years. Recently playing for Asheville City SC in the USL2 and OSA Seattle in the NPSL for the 2022 season. Head Coach John Baird added “I am delighted to have got Aaron over the line. When Aaron came to our attention we agreed he was the type of personality and player we want at Mandurah City. He ticked all of mine and my coaching staff’s boxes and as a lad, he came across really well. His background and what he has achieved in America has proven he is very mature and has a lot of potential. Considering the clubs we are competing with all over Australia, it’s a massive compliment Aaron decided the best option to continue his football career was to join Mandurah City FC. It’s a credit to the club and my coaching staff.”
