The Easter weekend was host to the Statewide Cup rounds, which didn’t bode well for many players! Our Senior Men’s team took on a tough opponent in the Glenorchy Knights, who are currently on top of the NPL ladder, being unbeaten this season with a hefty goal difference. Head Coach, Scott Gannon, says: “Friday night was a tough night at the office, against a very impressive NPL outfit. That being said, I felt we held our own for the first 45 minutes in particular and were unlucky to concede 5 minutes before half time. We had 8 players unavailable, which forced a change in formation. I felt the lads applied themselves extremely well, and I can’t fault their commitment and desire! It was pleasing to see young Arlo at 17 [years old] start against an NPL team and gain valuable experience, the future looks bright for Taroona!”

“We now turn our focus to South East United, who will go into the weekend extremely confident after a resounding 10-0 win on Monday. It’s been a difficult week with the weather and ground closures, however we make no excuses and I fully expect us to be prepared and switched on come Saturday afternoon. I look forward to the return of Declan Taylor, who provides the team with additional quality and moments of brilliance. We worked hard as a unit last week and I know if we do the same this weekend, our quality will be enough to get the job done and bring the 3 points home to Kelvedon!”

On Saturday our WSL squad travelled back up to Devonport to take on the Strikers for the 2nd time this year. Two Pirated suffered serious concussions early in the game, which contributed greatly to the tough loss. The game showed our Pirates attacking much more than in previous games, but a failure to transition promptly into defence was a total of 13 goals conceded. Our WSL squad are still optimistic for a solid contest against our neighbouring Kingborough Lions this weekend though, embodying our trademark Taroona “Never Say Die” attitude.

Wednesday night saw our Social League 3 lads taking on Olympia FC Warriors at Warrior Park. The first half looked promising, with goals by Beau Dupen and Paul Barlow putting our Pirates ahead on the score board. But two more goals to the opposition in the second half saw our team losing the game 3-2 in a very tight contest.

There’s a slew of senior games on this weekend, so let’s get on out and support our teams! Best of luck to everyone playing and supporting.
