Beauy’s first SL 1 Game
Richmond 3-1 Beaumaris
Beauy had a tough start in State League One with a visit to last year NPL club
The start was tentative for the locals, in front of several hundred spectators, with Beauy struggling to get a foot hold in the game and it was no surprise when
The second half started much as the first with
Reserves drew 2-2 in an entertaining game coming back from a goal down on two occasions with strikes from Luka Barrueto and James Rasool.
Bye next week for Easter break, and next game at home against last years State League One runner up, Mornington on 7 April.

Beaumaris 2-0 Mornington
Beauy announced their arrival in the top league with a well deserved victory over title favourites, Mornington at a packed Beauy reserve on Saturday. The club major sponsors, Porsche Brighton were in attendance with the other major supporters at the first Sponsors Day of the season, all of whom were entertained with wins for both seniors and reserves .
Beauy struggled to make an impact for 20 minutes and Mornington dominated possession but gradually the home side were able to exert their influence and came back into the game and a level score at the half time break was a fair outcome
In the second half , Beauy began to play their better passing game and scored after 55 minutes when skipper, Zach Lemke slotted home after a goal mouth scramble. Mornington were reduce d to ten men after a wild challenge saw a red card and Beauy worked the ball well to increase their lead when last seasons top scorer Toby Nowell slotted home after a fast paced right wing attack.
Although pushing for a third goal allowed Mornington to make several dangerous attacks, the home side ran out well deserved winners for their first victory in State League One.
Reserves won 1-0 with an excellent goal from Will Rudzevecius, again after an excellent passing move.
Next week at Casey on Friday night as the adventure continues!!

The Biggest Sign Up
KRISTIAN SARKIES SIGNS FOR BEAUMARIS
Undoubtedly the biggest name player ever to grace Beaumaris Reserve will be appearing for Beaumaris SC in 2018. In a massive coup for the club we are delighted to announce the signing of former Australian international, Melbourne Victory & much decorated NPL player KRISTIAN SARKIES.
After starting his career with South Melbourne, Sarkies played in the A-league Grand Final with Melbourne Victory, he scored his third goal for the club in his team's 6-0 thrashing of Adelaide in the 90th minute and scoring from long range. However it was upon collecting his championship medal that he made headlines around the country by kissing Australian Prime Minister John Howard on his bald head.
Sarkies was called up by coach Guus Hiddink to be part of the "train-on" squad leading up to Australia's appearance at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. He won his first cap in the dying minutes of Australia's 3-1 friendly win against Liechtenstein on 8 June 2006. He was then kept in Germany with the Socceroos after he was given a personal invitation from Guus Hiddink to stay with the team until after the first group match with Japan.
Sarkies has represented his country at all youth levels and was involved in Australia's qualifying campaign for the Beijing 2008 Olympics. The first game of this campaign was against Chinese Taipei at Hindmarsh Stadium on 7 February 2007. Australia won the match 11-0, with Sarkies scoring four goals.
Our senior coach Marcus Stergiopoulos commented “ We are excited to be able to bring a player of Kristian’s quality to the club & from my conversations with him he remains as competitive as ever & will bring a huge amount to the club both on & off the pitch”.
Kristian lives locally & is looking forward to having his young family enjoy the junior soccer program at the club. He is pictured above being welcomed by club president Joe Mottola
