This weekend’s State League One show down against Casey Comets kicks off with a twilight match at our home ground Beaumaris Secondary School at 6.30pm
SUPER SUNDAY MATCH REPORT
You can tell the 2019 season is almost here as Beauy ramped up their activity across Sunday 17 March. Games at the new school ground and Lemnos saw players from 17-63 taking part in intra-club, friendly and FFV Cup fixtures.
The day started with the main event at 11am, watched by President Joe Mottolla and other committee members, being the Nike Cup game between our Senior Womens team and Altona Magic from the NW division. Beauy started brightly and had a couple of good opportunities but fell behind after 15 minutes and defensive indecision from corners saw us with a three-goal deficit with fifteen minutes to go before the break. We battled strongly and again had opportunities but were unable to convert with the ball being drawn like a magnet direct to the Magic's keepers arms!
The second half was almost one-way traffic to the Altona goal with Beauy dominating possession and carving out multiple chances but unable to get on the scoresheet, with the Altona keeper helped by the woodwork on two occasions.
A three-goal defeat did not do justice to a fine team performance and special mention to Holly and Claire our stand in keepers who were both excellent!
Coach Danielle Tracey and skipper Yana Kyparisis, were spotted deep in conversation later during the day, no doubt mulling over the game and putting plans in place to push their promotion ambitions in 2019.
The afternoon at Beauy College saw our two Mens Metro teams do battle with Monash Uni over two matches. One win and one loss, but the cobwebs were blown away and the gents are well set for the 2019 league season/
Finally at the school and under lights, the State League One Reserves squad took on Nunawading City and ran out 5-1 winners and again, much to look forward to as the State League Mens competition kicks off against Casey Comets at 4pm next Sunday 24 March at Beauy College, with Seniors playing at 6.20pm that evening.
At Lemnos, the newest team in the Club with the oldest players, ran out in an intra -club game between the Over 45 and Over 55 teams. With 24 ' experienced' players involved and again supported by the Prez, the younger team ran out winners, but with an Over 55 competition starting in 2019, our oldest players are looking to add some silverware to the Club trophy collection!
SENIOR WOMEN'S NEWS!!
Beauy's senior women’s team kick off their 2019 season with a Nike Cup game against Altona Magic at the new Beaumaris Secondary School pitch on Sunday 17 March.
Coach Danielle Tracey is hoping for a promotion run to State League 2 this season and the cup opener against Altona will provide a stern test.
The Club is proudly supported by Porsche Centre Brighton. Our senior players visited the centre earlier today to show their thanks for all their support.
SENIOR MENS - MATCH REPORT
Beaumaris 2-1 Malvern City
Beauy got their Senior Mens competitive season off to a winning start with an enthralling and incident packed win over Malvern City in the FFA Cup on Saturday. With the league season only two weeks away and the lengthy pre season almost over, coaches Stergioupoulos and Gibson were keen to move into the 4th Round of the FFA cup against fellow State League One team, Malvern City. Playing at the FIFA accredited artificial surface at Beaumaris College, the home side made a cagey start, but gradually began to dominate the game and after a couple of missed chances, went ahead just before the break, when midfielder Zach Lemke fired in off a City defender.
The second half started in controversy with Kristian Sarkies picking up a second yellow card, and reducing Beauy to 10 men with still 40 minutes to go. The home crowd feared the worst when a fine strike from Malvern levelled the scores, but Beauy battled on with time running out, and in added on time, new young signing Dakota Macallan fired in to the net to give the 10 men the lead. A final free kick for Malvern was defended well and the home team now look forward to the draw for Round 4 on 12 March and the game next weekend.
OUR 2019 CLUB CAPTAIN!
Beaumaris Soccer Club are delighted to announce that the Club Captain for 2019 will Be Kristian Sarkies former Socceroo and Melbourne Victory player.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR CAPTAIN KRISTIAN SARKIES
“As some of u are aware my little brother has had a bad liver since he was 12yrs old. He has been on heavy medication every day since he found out he had a problem with it. He takes 12 tablets a day just to keep if from deteriorating and has been in and out of hospital every couple of months. He is now 28yrs old and been on a liver transplant list for the last 6months, hoping to get a new liver soon!
A few of his mates organised a motorbike and old car ride/drive last Sunday 3rd March to raise money and support the Austin hospital and donate a life, which is a charity to make awareness of donating your organs in the terrible case of you or one of your loved ones passes away. They had over 150+ bikes and 20+ cars in attendance.
I am so proud of my team mates who purchased rainbow shoelaces from http://www.zaidee.org. and wore them in their boots to show their support. All money raised was donated to https://donatelife.gov.au. and the Austin hospital.
The laces were worn at our recent FFA Cup Victory v Malvern City”

Team Work at its best!!
Your Committee have been working with Council for many years to improve the facilities for our members at Beaumaris Reserve, and in particular to provide changing facilities that are appropriate to the needs of our junior and female members.
In 2017 Council announced the Beaumaris Arts and Sports Pavilion (BASP) project to address these needs, which was a unique collaborative project between Soccer, Cricket, Tennis and the local Arts community clubs. The considerable work that has gone into this project, including architect’s designs and community consultation produced an acceptable multi-purpose pavilion that met the needs of all.
Unfortunately we have been advised by Council that the project has been cancelled despite the considerable efforts of our Community clubs to make it happen. We understand the reason for its cancellation is due to the scale and subsequent cost of the combined building and that one of the 4 potential sites for the pavilion encroached onto the Beaumaris Community Memorial Forecourt and Cenotaph.
Councillors and Council officers have given their commitment that a new project to progress the development of a separate soccer pavilion is now underway, with funding and project management appointed to ensure its availability to BSC members for the beginning of the 2021 competition season. Architects are to be appointed to deliver a detailed design that meets our functional requirements which include:
4 x 30m2 changerooms
3 x 20m2 amenities (4 showers, 2 toilets)
1 x 20m2 amenities (4 showers, 2 toilets, 1 accessible toilet/shower)
2 x 20m2 storerooms
1 x accessible public toilet
1 x ambulant public toilet
1 x 35m2 kiosk/kitchen
1 x 15m2 referees room (2 showers, 1 toilet)
1 x 12m2 first aid room
1 x 3m2 cleaning cupboard
1 x 10m2 bin store
1 x 10m2 bar
1 x 100m2 coaches meeting room and social space
1 x 10m2 chair and table store
maximum under cover shade and protection for spectators.
Your pavilion levy contributions are dedicated to the fitting out of the kitchen/canteen with additional appliances to offer members decent food and beverages and for audio visual equipment for coaches to use to assist player development and understanding. We’re still on track to have the new pavilion ready for the beginning of the 2021 season and we urge you to lobby your local Councillors to deliver on their promise as actions always speak louder than words.
CLICK on TEAMS and then head to your respective age group to find more details.
We have changed U7's Preseason training to Mondays 5.30-6.30pm at Beaumaris Secondary College Reserve Road.

Registrations for returning players plus those who trialled in November are now open. Please register early to secure your place and assist with planning for the season. From 28 January, registrations will also be open to new players.
Football Australia has introduced a new registration system this year, Play Football. You log in using your email address rather than your FFA number. A benefit is that one account can therefore be used to register multiple players.
The first step in registering this year is to log in to your Football Account using the email address you used for previous registrations and resetting your password. Once you have done that, you can "claim" your old FFA accounts and link them to your new Football Account. Then you are ready to register for this year.
There are instructions and a step by step registration guide available on the Play Football support site. Plus answers to questions such as what to do if you no longer have access to the email address used for last year's registration.
Details about age groups, fees and discounts are available on the Registration page.

SENIOR MEN SL1 NEWS
After a solid first season in State League 1, it’s been a busy summer & pre-season campaign for returning coaches Marcus Stergiopoulos & David Gibson, with a number of players leaving & several new faces arriving, with the aim of further improving our squad. With 10 of last season’s first team retained including ex Melbourne Victory star Kristian Sarkies & American import Zach Lemke, the new players this season have all been targeted to make us even more competitive.
New signings pictured are:
Daniel Jurina – ex
Rhys Craigie – ex Gala Fairydean (
Dorian Sorace – ex
Enes Sivic – ex
Brandon Osipov – ex Dandenong City (NPL2) & former Melbourne Victory Youth
In addition 2 locally developed players from last seasons Under 20’s Mathew Dickinson & Peter Versamis have been elevated to the senior squad for 2019.
Senior Coach Marcus Stergiopoulos commented “With a number players coming and going during the off season, our preseason started in earnest for our preparations for the 2019 campaign on the 27th November 2018, with the addition of a Strength & Conditioning Coach to our program to monitor and help our players adjust their workload, their recovery and even diet.
Our preseason friendlies from a results point of view has been somewhat disappointing or be it against very good NPL teams (Bentleigh Greens, Oakleigh Cannons, Dandenong Thunder, Bulleen Lions). However, I have seen many positives throughout these games in certain moments that has encouraged me for the upcoming 2019 season.
We’ve added 8 new faces to this year’s squad which provides us with a good blend of experience players who have knowledge and composure mixed with youth who bring enthusiasm and a fearless approach.
Naturally it takes time for any new player let alone 8 to adjust into a new environment, style of football and teammates - so this season presents a new challenge for the players, new and old, yet an exciting chapter for the team as we (the coaches) prepare the players each week in a style to win every football match that we compete in”.
Our Senior Team Tanager of 10 years & club stalwart Ross Mclean reluctantly stood down at the end of last season - a big thank you to him for all his effort and support.
Filling this void is a huge task but club “legend” Matteo Zappalla has stepped up and is bringing a level of enthusiasm and excitement and that the whole group is rubbing off on. So a big welcome to Matteo – it’s going to be a fun year! (Matteo is picture here – ready for action)

Michael has a business in the local Bayside area & will provide assistance to our senior squad throughout the season with a strength & conditioning program & will be available for any of our members needs.
“I have been working in the fitness industry for the last 4 years and my goal was to open my own Personal Training Studio by 2020. I have managed to pursue my dream in 2018 opening Ecofit Personal and Group Training in July this year. The vision of Ecofit is to promote a sustainable lifestyle in a community orientated environment and focusing on Personal Training, Group Training, Strength and Conditioning, Yoga Classes and Nutrition Consultations. I have played soccer since the age of 9 and have previously played at Beaumaris Soccer Club for 4 years but due to injury I was forced to put my love for the game on hold and I am now focusing on new goals. I have been able to combine strength and conditioning to many of my clients from all backgrounds and with this knowledge and experience, I believe it will benefit the players for the upcoming season and put them a step above the competition. I am very proud to be a part of the Beaumaris Soccer Club again and I look forward to assisting any players, members & parents during the 2019 season.”
