MONBULK RANGERS SOCCER
Victorian teams – including 22 players from the Monbulk Rangers Soccer Club – excelled at the Christian Football Federation of Australia’s national titles in Sydney recently, bringing home Championship Cups in three age groups and narrowly losing a fourth.
Victoria won their grand finals in the CFFA Under 16s Boys, Under 18s Boys and Women’s divisions, with the state’s Men’s team narrowly losing their final in a penalty shootout.
Under 16 MRSC players Max Lamers and Tali Holman both won the prestigious Golden Boot awards in their respective boys and girls sections, while Max’s team mate Erwin Berger was named Player of the Finals.
Monbulk’s Tali Holman, Georgia Knight and Ella Tampiyappa were named in the Under 16s Girls All Stars team and Safin Clarke was named in the Under 16s Boys All Stars team, while Ariel Reyes was selected in the Under 14s Boys All Stars.
Monbulk Rangers president, Sam Knight, attended the nationals and said she was proud of the talented pool of players from the club.
“They behaved very professionally both on and off the field in Sydney, and their victories were a reward for the tremendous hours the players put into training in the lead-up to the Nationals with our fantastic coaches, Sam and Pete Wilson,” she said.
“To have a squad of 22 players from our Club selected to represent their state at a national level is testament to the commitment of the coaching staff and the skills that we aim to develop right through from sub junior to senior playing levels.”
