Camberwell Under 11’s on track for a fight back

Coming off the back of some big losses, the Camberwell U11 team were met with glorious sunshine on what was meant to be a stormy morning at Dorothy Laver. Taking this as an omen, we saw Matt Lamb take the first goal for Camberwell. There was some impressive defence by our new young recruit Bailey Nicholls, allowing the ball to make its way into the midfield and see another goal scored by Matt Lamb.

Blitz Streak Broken

Camberwell Blitz  4 lost to Caulfield  11

Playing the third-placed Caulfield the Blitz were always going to be in for a tough day.  The opening ten minutes was an arm wrestle with neither side scoring as the ball reversed up and down the field.  Frank McKenna made two great saves in goal and Liam Campbell broke up a number of Caulfield thrusts with strong body groundballs and determined running.  Unfortunately the Blitz could not sustain the pressure and gave up three goals to finish the quarter 0-3.

A piece of history - The Saxby Training Light

More than sixty years ago a small switch box and light was erected on a post between the edge of the road and the Francis Crescent playing field at the Saxby Road end where the club trained and often played matches.  It was put there by the club to control a single low-powered light used for mid-week training by the Camberwell-Glen Iris teams. Strangely it is still there - maybe it has been given heritage listing !
