Beaumaris 0-1 St Kilda. 

Beauy ended disappointingly for the large crowd gathered for the Junior Gala Day at Reserve Rd. With over 1000 people through the venue on the day, the stage was  set for the Senior team to end their season on a positive note after a successful first year at the highest level in Victorian community soccer. Youngsters, Peter Varsamis, Aiden Taylor and Matt Dickenson, all started and were joined by Tom Scott in the second half and all performed creditably  giving a positive outlook to the future for the Club at this level. The only goal came from a St Kilda strike early in the second half, but despite again dominating possession, the home side could not find the equaliser. 
The Club is now focussed on it's new facility at Beaumaris College with the artificial surface there allowing greater usage by junior and senior  male and female teams in 2019. President, Joe Mottola commented  that with the new artificial pitch and discussions with Council well advanced for a new changing and club room facility at Beauy Reserve the Club was looking forward to a rewarding future  for all members in 2019 and beyond. 


State League 1 NEWS

Morwell Pegasus

withdraw from competition

Last week we were notified by the FFV that Morwell Pegasus had folded. This caused Competition Rule 2.1.4 to be invoke which has resulted in only the match results involving Morwell up to the half way stage of the season stand & any results post that are declared void & such games now recorded as a bye……see notice below:

Morwell Pegasus SC have withdrawn from Men's State League 1 South-East.

In accordance with 2.1.4 of the  2018 Men’s Rules of Competition - If a Team is withdrawn after the point of the season at which all Teams have played each other an equal number of times, a ‘BYE’ will be inserted for the remainder of the season to replace the withdrawn Team in the fixture, and:

  1. all championship points along with goals scored (for & against) for:

i.   Competition Fixtures involving the withdrawn Team up to the point of the season at which all Teams have played each other an equal number of times will remain.

ii.  Competition Fixtures involving the withdrawn Team after the point of the season at which all Teams have played each other an equal number of times until the time the Team withdrew, will be erased.

Unfortunately this meant that the Beaumaris Senior win against Morwell 3 weeks ago is now null & void & as a result of this game being called  a bye we have lost the 3 competition points won that day.

Beaumaris SC does not feel this outcome to be fair & not do we believe that regulation 2.1.4 provides an equitable outcome in any competition seniors or juniors in the event of a club folding and as a result have lodged a complaint to the FFV Competitions Dept. We have today met with FFV who acknowledge the difficulty this situation has created & while the regulation will stand for 2018, they have undertaken to review this for the 2019 season.


Manningham 4-1 Beaumaris 

Beauy's undefeated streak ended at the hands of the State League One champions on the artificial pitch at Doncaster. After having the best of the first half possession and missing a couple of chances, Beauy fell behind after a defensive error allowed the Blues to take the lead before half time. In the first part of the second half, Beauy struggled for a foothold but were working their way back into the contest when Manningham struck again. Two further goals followed in quick possession to leave a score which did not reflect the balance of the game but gave the Beauy coaching team a clear idea why Manningham have been the stand out team in 2018 and will head for the NPL next season. 
Youngsters, Tom Scott and Peter Varsamis were introduced from the bench and Scott scored his first senior goal to reduce the arrears, but the Club now looks forward to the end of season finale against St Kilda next weekend combined with the Junior Gala Day at Beaumaris Reserve. 



Beaumaris 2-2 Malvern City 

Beauy continued their unbeaten run stretching to 12 games, but were unable to get the three points despite a dominant second half performance against mid table rivals Malvern City 
The home side were two behind at the break due to poor defensive errors although  they did threaten on several occasions. In the second half, the team seemed more galvanised and clawed one back via skipper Adam Hester before David Caban struck a left foot wonder goal to equalise with 25 minutes to go. The locals pounded the Malvern defence but could not grab the winner 
Next week against league winners Manningham before the final round on junior gala day on 8 September to round off  the season. 
Reserves well beaten 1-4 with goal scorer, captain Jamie Moody. 

Fantastic to see our Gold Sponsor HODGES in attendance

Eltham 0-0 Beaumaris 

Beauy continued their unbeaten run stretching to eleven games with a hard fought draw on the artificial pitch in eltham. After a scrappy first half, beauy moved the ball better in the second term and had multiple chances with Zach Lemke hitting the bar and debutant, Matt Dickinson forcing a fine save from  the home keeper. Eltham had a couple of breakaway chances, but beauy will feel they have lost two points here.
Reserves lost 1-3 with goal from Will Rudzevicius
Bye next week before final three games of the season.

Beaumaris 1-1 Caulfield cobras

Beauy ground out another draw against local rivals Caulfield on a blustery day at Reserve rd. With the pitch in poor condition and the wind causing many problems, the teams were battling to make a show  for the crowd, and went in to the break goalless.
Cobras came out and scored from a cross and header, after ten minutes befitting their giant status with several players well in excess of 1.8m.
The goal seemed to galvanise the home team who played their best football and deservedly equalised after a handball saw Toby Nowell score from the spot. Beaumaris almost grabbed the winner when young sub, peter varsamis tried an overhead kick in the dying seconds which the cobras keeper pushed away
Reserves won 1-0 with goal from James Rasool

Warragul Utd 2-2 Beaumaris 

Beauy extended their unbeaten in State League One to nine games after a battling draw at Warragul. Playing on a sticky surface , and a maximum size pitch, the conditions were significantly different for the Bayside team. A solid start saw an excellent volley from Zach Lemke give Beauy the lead and the position improved with a second from  a Kristan Sarkies free kick which was bent into the top corner.  Two goals up away from home at half time was a solid platform, but as the second half wore on  Beauy began to tire  ,with the ground conditions affecting several players, and the home sides physical and direct style causing problems. A golden chance went begging after Toby Nowell was through on goal, but two quick fire finishes got Warragul level and in the end Beauy were hanging on for a point. 
Reserves also finished level at 3-3 with a come from behind performance. 
Next week Caulfield Cobras at home. 

Beaumaris 1-0 Morwell Pegasus 

Beauy continued their move up the table to third in State League One with a hard fought win over a determined Morwell side who are  battling relegation . 
The home side had several opportunities  in the first half but were only able to capitalise on one chance when skipper, Adam Hester, slotted home left footed ten minutes from the break. 
The second half produced more chances but  also Morwell broke out on several occasions and good defensive work was needed to ensure the points stayed on Bayside, with three impressive saves from Nathan Silver in the Beauy goal. 
Reserves won 6-1 and moved to second on the ladder after another impressive performance. Next week is the long trip to Warragul.

South Springvale 0-6 Beaumaris 

Beauy's biggest win of the season came at the expense of South Springvale , who along with Morwell and Casey Comets are battling against relegation. A bright start with much possession, orchestrated by Kristian Sarkies in the centre of the back three,failed to deliver until Zach Lemke headed home from a Rodrigues cross just before half time. 
After the break, Beauy set about their task with vigour and scored two very quickly and eventually ran out with a further three, with last weeks scorer, Ben Osei-Afao, plus a second for Lemke, and two for top scorer Toby Nowell, and a first goal for Luka Beretta who has recently forced his way into the team. A clean sheet will also have pleased coach Marcus Stergioupolous. 
Reserves continued their winning ways with a decisive 3-1 win with goals from James Rasool, plus two from young winger Peter Varsamis. 

Beaumaris 1 - 1 Casey Comets   

Beauy disappointed their loyal followers with a display that meant they did not get the win against lowly Casey at home. With windy and wet conditions  the locals started brightly and dominated possession as usual but with little cutting edge and went in at half time scoreless. Casey came back after halftime and grabbed a goal after a scramble in the penalty box and then parked the bus to try to get a point. With 20 minutes still remaining, Beauy fashioned an equaliser via Daniel Rodrigues from left wing back, and pushed on for the winner but without success. A sixth game unbeaten but wins are needed to finish the first season in State League One on a high note. 
Reserves won 3-1 with two goals from James Rasool and a header from Matt Dickinson. 

Mornington 2-2 Beaumaris  

Intermittent torrential rain and a blustery wind greeted Beauy as  they arrived at State League One heavy weights Mornington. The Seagulls have been contenders for promotion to NPL for the last three seasons and were again pressing to keep in touch with ladder leaders Manningham and Richmond, so Beauy were guaranteed a tough test. The usual fast start from Marcus Stergioupolous' team was replaced with a lethargic opening culminating in a goal to the home side within ten minutes. Beauy gradually fought their way back but went in still a goal behind. 
After the break , Beauy began to impose their passing game and better technical skills, but failed to  adequately prevent a breakaway allowing Mornington to double their lead with less than twenty minutes to go. Beauy continued to press on and were rewarded with a fine volleyed finish from Zach Lemke after a defensive mix up and top scorer Toby Nowell grabbed the equaliser shortly after , again pouncing on a goalkeeping error. Beauy came close to a winner but settled for a point to maintain their five game unbeaten run before Casey Comets at home on Saturday 
Reserves drew 1-1 with goal from James Rasool. 

Beaumaris 1 1 Richmond

Beauy fought hard against a promotion chasing Richmond to grab a well deserved point at Reserve Rd on Saturday. The moneyed former NPL club have imported multiple overseas players and have put a strong showing in State League One since their relegation. The home side were clearly up for the battle and the initial twenty minutes saw Beauy contest every ball and not allow the visitors any time to settle. Beauy were rewarded on 24 minutes when after a strong burst by Ben Osei-Afao, skipper Adam Hester fired home from the corner of the box. The visitors grabbed an equaliser almost immediately , but drama unfolded on the stoke of half time when a mix up between Anton Redmond and keeper Nathan Silver saw the keeper bring down the Richmond striker and a spot kick was awarded. Silver , however,  saved from the spot for the second time this season,  to keep the locals level at half time. 
The second half saw a largely rearguard action by the home side who clung on for a point. 
Reserves won 4-1 in an excellent display. Next week at Mornington.

St Kilda 0-0 Beaumaris 

A wild and freezing afternoon by the beach produced a hard fought point for Beauy after dominating the game  at St Kilda, but failing to take several chances to score. 
The game was played on a poor surface which did not assist Beauy's passing game and the blustery conditions also made for a poor spectacle for the crowd huddled under the pavilion roof. 
Toby Nowell had a couple of opportunities  in each half but could not find the net and keeper  Nathan Silver almost cost the game with a poor clearance which the St Kilda player struck firmly towards the net only for Silver to raise back and make a flying save. 
Reserves were out muscled by a stronger St Kilda team and lost 1-4 with the only goal from James Rasool. 
Next week at home to Richmond with Sponsors Day  also taking place and a large crowd expected.

Beaumaris 2-1 Manningham Blues 

Two wonder strikes enabled the Bayside team to grab a win over top of the table Manningham on Saturday. The biggest crowd of the season saw Beauy take the lead from  a well rehearsed corner routine which saw Kristian Sarkies volley home from a David Caban corner, but the Blues came back quickly when a cross to the far post was poorly defended and the away team equalised. A blinding finish from Zach Lemke after a goalkeeper error for the Blues saw Beauy regain the lead which they  held on till half time. 
The second half  was a battle from the home side with a solid defensive performance and again with keeper, Nathan 'Large' Silver outstanding, the Beauy team hung on to grab all three points before the catch up round/break next week end 
Reserves dominated with a number of players back and  under sixteen debutant Matt Diago-Kiriako slotted home an equaliser to grab  a well deserved point, which was the least the team deserved. 
Bye next week and St Kilda away on 16 June at Elwood Park 

Beaumaris 2-1 Manningham Blues 

Two wonder strikes enabled the Bayside team to grab a win over top of the table Manningham on Saturday. The biggest crowd of the season saw Beauy take the lead from  a well rehearsed corner routine which saw Kristian Sarkies volley home from a David Caban corner, but the Blues came back quickly when a cross to the far post was poorly defended and the away team equalised. A blinding finish from Zach Lemke after a goalkeeper error for the Blues saw Beauy regain the lead which they  held on till half time. 
The second half  was a battle from the home side with a solid defensive performance and again with keeper, Nathan 'Large' Silver outstanding, the Beauy team hung on to grab all three points before the catch up round/break next week end 
Reserves dominated with a number of players back and  under sixteen debutant Matt Diago-Kiriako slotted home an equaliser to grab  a well deserved point, which was the least the team deserved. 
Bye next week and St Kilda away on 16 June at Elwood Park 

Malvern City 1-2 Beaumaris 

A gritty performance saw Beauy back to winning ways in State League One. On a beautiful autumn afternoon, the Bayside team got their first away points of the season. 
With multiple injuries and suspensions, the team was forced into a number of changes and indeed the absence of top scorer Toby Nowell appeared a major issue. However, the determination of the group came to the fore with a burst down the right by Liam Woods on the twenty minute mark, and an excellent cross, saw skipper Adam Hester convert at the far post. A second from Hester after great work by Dan Rodrigues gave the away team a two goal cushion at the break. 
In true Beauy fashion within ten minutes of the restart, Malvern had forced a goal and took the momentum for the next fifteen minutes and desperate defending kept Beauy in the lead. Ten minutes from the end a Malvern breakaway saw Woods day turn as he brought down the Malvern attacker to give away a penalty, and  also saw the referee hand out a red card. 
Keeper, Nathan'Large' Silver saved the day with an excellent save from the spot kick low to his left and marshalled superbly by Kristian Sarkies in the middle of defence , the ten man  Beauy held out for  three points. 
Reserves lost 2-4 with both goals from James Anastiades, and again a very promising performance from George Prasionos young team with supplements from U16 teams. 
Next week against top of the table Manningham at Beauy Reserve. 

Beaumaris 0-2 Eltham Redbacks 

Beauy's 100% home record came crashing down with two defensive errors costing the home side against a diligent, but technically limited Eltham outfit. 
With a number of injuries the locals were slightly undermanned, but still took the game to Eltham in the first twenty minutes and had a golden chance to take the lead when Dan Rodrigues was upended in the box. The penalty  from top scorer, Toby Nowell ,was however saved by the Eltham keeper and the teams went in equal at the break 
The second half began with Beauy again trying to play out from the back, but within ten minutes were caught in possession and Eltham capitalised and scored into the corner. A second goal followed with fifteen minutes left and although some pressure from Beauy towards the end, they were well beaten for the second consecutive game. 
Reserves lost 1-3 to Eltham with  a depleted squad, but excellent performances from the u16 players drafted in.

Caulfield Cobras 2-0 Beaumaris 

Beauy's abject away form in State League One continued with a defeat at close neighbours Cobras on Saturday. After the reserves had pulled of a miracle 2-1 win   finishing with nine men against top of the table Cobras and goals from James Rasool and Matt Dickinson, hope was high that the seniors could continue from last weeks fine win over Warragul. 
Starting brightly as usual, the locals had the best of the game for twenty minutes before a double blow ,with Jarrah Clear and Kristian Sarkies suffering  injuries in the space of 5 minutes and requiring substitutions. A  restructure was required and caused a lapse in concentration allowing a Cobras player to run clear and pass into the net to give the home side the lead at halftime 
Beauy dominated possession in the second half, but although a couple of solid chances were missed, the danger was always on the break and the Cobras wrapped up the points with ten minutes remaining after a swift counter attack down the left. 
With zero points from four away fixtures, there is plenty to work on before Eltham visit the Beaumaris Reserve next Saturday. 

Next week away at Caulfield Cobras 

Morwell Pegasus 2-1 Beaumaris

Beauy slumped to their third defeat in State League One at Morwell on Saturday. At best a lack lustre performance with poor distribution and in effectual tackling saw the local side deservedly beaten. 
The day had started brightly with a 3-0 win to the Reserves, and the Seniors starting well with some clever interplay resulting in a number of missed chances in the first fifteen minutes. Pegasus took the lead against the run of play when a ball bounced around in the Beauy penalty area before hitting Daniel Rodrigues' knee and going into the bottom corner. Beauy equalised after a Calum Batey cross was headed home by skipper Adam Hester, and the scores were tied at the break. 
The second half display was poor with Pegasus dominating the game and Beauy lucky to stay level until the only further goal from a penalty after a foul in the box by the Beauy defender. A couple of chances near the end to Cal Batey and Toby Nowell were missed but all in all a day to forget for Beaumaris.

Next week vs Warragul at home.

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 Richmond under lights last Friday night. The home side had recruited significantly since their relegation from the elite competition with a number of international signings included in a complete revamp of their squad. 
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 Richmond took the lead with a fierce left foot shot eluding keeper, Nathan Silver in the Beauy goal. The team responded and a period of pressure saw an error from the Richmond keeper, in dropping the ball from a cross, and in attempting to recover, fouled last years top scorer Toby Nowell in the  box. Nowell put away the resulting spot kick to level the scores. 
The second half started much as the first with Richmond dominating possession and scoring again with 35 minutes to go. A feisty spell followed which saw a Richmond player red carded and an opportunity for Beauy to make superior numbers tell. However, despite a number of close calls, the Richmond keeper was rarely troubled and the home side went further in front from a dubiously awarded penalty with 10 minutes to go and ran out comfortable winners. 
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!!

Club Captain signs on for 2018

We are delighted to announce that Club Captain Adam Hester (pictured) now in his 6th year at the club has re-signed to lead our charge into State League 1 in 2018



We are delighted to announce some changes to the senior coaching team in 2018. Former Assistant coach Sam Poutakidis has recently been appointed as Head Coach of fellow State League 1 team Richmond FC & we thank him for all he contribution to Beaumaris SC & wish him well for the future. This has opened up the opportunity to promote David Gibson from Reserve Coach to Senior Assistant Coach alongside Marcus Stergiopoulos. David is a former player & club legend who in recent years has developed a highly credentialed coaching resume most recently working within the FFV structure as an NTC Coach.

In light of this appointment we are also now delighted to announce that last season's Beaumaris Under 16 coach George Prasinos (pictured below) has been offered & accepted to take up the position of Reserves Coach in 2018. George will work closely with the senior coaches & provide great continuity for our strategy to provide a fast development pathway for the youi8nger players coming through the club ranks. George is a fully credentialed FFV coach & over Christmas will be spending time at Central Coast Mariners as part of his continuing learning.




In what was a stellar year for our senior team, gaining promotion to State League 1 for the first time in the clubs history, not only was Toby Nowell the top goal scorer with a club record 25 goals in the season, he also won the League's top scorer award.

What's more, to cap off an outstanding year for Toby (his first at Beaumaris SC), we was voted the FFV State League 2 "Best & Fairest" winner for 2018 - a fantastic achievement! Toby is pictured proudly wearing his two medals.

The Biggest Sign Up



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


Following promotion to State League 1 in 2018 our senior group has been strengthened by the addition of 3 high quality recruits as we look to do well in the higher level this coming season. Pre season training is now well under way and our new signings added to the retention of most of last year’s successful squad gives us cause for optimism this year.
