VARSITY WIN FLETCHER CUP (Div 2), CHINESE CHARITY SHIELD and ABL League (Div 3)
Following the success of winning the John Wilkenson League in 2005, the Club has won the Division 2 Double and shared Diviion 3.
Manager extrodinair Mark Sholum paid tribute to all players in the Club for the 2nd team's success. The closely fought league title was in no doubt thanks to crucial wins during the holidays and consistant good form on the home stretch, winning the title by 4 points.
The Chinese Charity Shield was contested by Varsity and Green Island at the Oval. After going down 1 nil, the lads fought hard to claw back the game. Sholum, the beast of a man that he is, scored the equaliser as a great ball was played into the mixer. With renewed enthusiasm, Varsity looked for the winner. A magic goal from powerhouse striker, whose sheer presennce in the box forced a fumble by the keeper. It was an easy goal for Attish, you could even say he could score a goal like that lying down. Anyhoo, it was a hard fought game by both sides. Tt was double drinks that night for the lads.
Success for thirds too. Narrowly missing out on the outright 3rd division title. Equal points, equal games won, equal goal difference, 1 less goals scored... Not sure who will have custody of the trophy for the year. Well done lads!
The first had a decent season. Pitty about not being able to convert 8 draws into 8 wins. But they fought hard, and got of potentially disastrous slump
The 4ths, the Division 4 defending champions ended up 4th... A trend? Good season by the lads.
Drew prays for victory in
In 2006 the Mighty Varisty Seconds dominated all other teams in Division 2
to claim the championship and the Charity Shield. But two trophies are never enough, and in 2007 OUAFC
will be striving to win all four leagues.
Even the medical staff get in on the act, though hopefully our medical staff
in 2007 will be a little more feminine than this one.
Everybody is welcome at OUAFC from
footballing superstars to the casual social player.
