Senior Presentation: Saturday 28 Sept. 

 

U14 Girls Win Nepean Cup Final.

Jessica opened the scoring and the girls led 1-0 at HT. We made it 2-0 after the break when some great play from Siobhan created a goal for Tahlia. But Springwood fought back to 2-2 to force extra time.

With the last kick of the game before penalties, Tahlia scored her 2nd and we won 3-2 in a thriller!

Congratulations girls!!

 

CHAMPION of CHAMPIONS - U16Girls team

Our U16 girls played their Champions of Champions round of 16 match against Southern Tablelands (ST). Just the 4th team in our club’s history to win div 1 and represent NFA in the competition. The sun was shining and a gentle breeze made conditions ideal for football. After a delay to the start time, the girls came out firing and went to an early lead. Although the girls dominated  possession, the opportunities just couldn't be finished off on the day. The match finished with ST winning 2-1.

The young ladies can certainly hold their heads high and they made us proud. 

 

CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES TOURNAMENT Finals - done and dusted. 

AAM10 lost 1-0
IM3Black lost on penalties
AAM8 won on penalties
AAW5 lost 6-0
U16G1 lost 3-1
AAW3 won 4-0

Great effort from all teams.

 

 

What a week!

As the league draws to a close.........

Winning comes in many forms. For our U12 Div 2 team and our Friday night O35s team, their first wins for the season in their matches is their win. Neither team gave in throughout the season, and their persistence won through. Congratulations to both teams!

With matches to spare, the AAM Div 8 and the AAW Div 3 teams won their league. They cruised in! Congratulations to both teams!

Then there are the league competitions that do it the hard way. Our AAM Div10 team went into a night match knowing they had to win by at least 3 goals to draw the league title. On Tuesday night, the men did just that. It then went to same points, same goal difference, same number of wins, draws and loses during the season, but looking at the total number of goals scored throughout the season, they are the league winners. Congratulations!

The U16Girls Div 1 team did it a different way. They received a devastating forfeit on Wednesday. Hoping for a big win in that match, the 3-0 result looked to have cost them the chance at winning the league which was coming down to goal difference. But on Sunday, a miracle occurred when Blue Mountains lost their match to Springwood leaving the U16 Girls as outright league winners! Congratulations U16Girls Div 1 team.

 

Our U5-U11 teams continue their fun games for the next few weeks, along with the competition teams in 10 team competitions. For the 8 team and 6 team competitions, it is now onto the Championship Series Tournament. 

 

 

We are a Level 3 good sports club! And it appears we're the first club in NFA to achieve this status.

We're working hard to ensure our club is family friendly and that our members and volunteers get to and from our club safely.

Successful GK clinic 

Many thanks to James from NFA for conducting our GK clinic. The kids really enjoyed the action packed fun and learnt many valuable skills along the way. It really was a fabulous opportunity to increase skill and confidence. 

 

ALDI KICKOFF PROGRAM KICKS OFF FOR THE YEAR

Our youngest club members joined in the action on the weekend with the start of our Kickoff program for the year. There were smiles and hifives all around. 

 

MATTHEW WINS WSW Powerchair Player of the Year.

Congratulations Matthew Mallows on winning the 2018 Powerchair Player of the Year at the Western Sydney Wanderers Medal Night. You have been, and continue to be, an inspiration to many people. The club and community are proud of you. 

Friday Nights Come Alive at Andromeda.

In an historical move for the club, Cranebrook now has FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL. Our O35 Div 2 Friday night team play Friday nights, giving the opportunity for all club members to witness the skill and enjoy the thrills that night time football provides. Bring a blanket and pack some snacks and head on down to Andromeda. The men will be playing on the Western Field.

Would be wonderful end to the school holidays for the kids, and an excellent night out for families. 

 Friday Night O35 team, 2019  Rob gives his approval of the move. Enjoy your Football! 

 

BLACK ARM BANDS - ALL participants in ALL matches 13-14 April, 2019.

Earlier this year, the club farewelled one of its life members, Rob Hamilton. In remembrance of Rob, and as a mark of respect to the man who gave so much of his time and energy to strengthening our club, all club members are requested to wear black armbands during matches this weekend for both home and away matches. Participants are encouraged to observe a minute's silence prior to kick off of their matches as well.

Managers are asked to notify the ground official so that the match officials and opposition teams are aware of the significance behind the bands and the requested minute's silence. 

 

Rob, this weekend is dedicated to you. 

 

 

 

Thank you Stuart Ayres who has generously provided our club with $7500!

It's great having the NSW Minister for Sport living in our community. He has contributed to many projects for us including his support for the recent top marking of the western field, installation of the stage 2 field lighting, upgrade of the electricity supply and the upgrade of the canteen through the Asian Cup Legacy Fund Grant. 

 

 

VALE ROB HAMILTON.

It is with great sadness that we advise our club and community members of the passing of one of its life members, Robert Hamilton. Rob played a vital role in the administration of the club for many years and was a frequent visitor to Andromeda since his retirement from the committee.

Our heart felt condolences are extended to Cindy and her family at this difficult time. 

Robert's family invites those who knew him well and wish to pay their respects to join them at the service next Monday.

May he rest in peace.

Andromeda Just got a Whole Lot Brighter.

The club was very pleased when it received notification that our grant application had been successful. Then came the business of working with PCC and FNSW to make the project come alive. After 10 months, last Tuesday 17 July  at 5pm Stage 2 of our night light project lit up as the new lights were turned on. 

Onward we march! Over the coming weeks, you'll notice EVERYTHING in the canteen being packed away, This is in preparation of the canteen upgrade which is due to start in September and is also part of a successful grant.

Saturday 22 April 2017

What a wonderful moment!

History was made today at Andromeda as the club welcomed for the first time our first U4 members with the Aldi Kickoff program. There were smiles and cheers, and a little apprehension. The little ones kicked the ball and participated in fun games, as Brendan guided and encouraged them throughtout their first session. 

 

Many thanks to the mums and dads, grandmas and grandpas, aunts and uncles who came along to join in the fun, and cheer the children on. And of course a big thankyou to Brendan.

 

 

 

 

Oval Watch Program - please help

Whilst we wait for the fields to dry out, please help us by keeping an eye out for any activity at either Andromeda or Sherringham which may damage the surface. If you have concerns,please contact the club or Penrith Police. Andromeda currently has the eastern field with motorbike ruts which will now have to be repaired. This incident is under investigation with promising leads. 

If you are driving by the fields, a quick look and any appropriate follow up action would be wonderful. This will help get Andromeda up and running again for the benefit of everyone.

 

 

THANK YOU! THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU! 

 A huge shout of thanks to the many people who join together to make Cranebrook Cobras a wonderful club.

SPECIAL WORD OF THANKS TO OUR COMMITTEE:   As Andromeda comes alive over the weekend, please understand that it does so because of a group of dedicated people - our committee - who put in endless hours of work behind the scenes.
