Weekend Preview – Woonona Sharks FC

In the Women’s Division 1 this weekend the Sharks are AWAY to Helensburgh. Last weekend Woonona’s Jordan Wheatley worked hard all match and led by example guiding her side around the pitch however, it was not enough as the Sharks suffered their first defeat of the season. Sinead Bailey will be looking to add to her season tally with 3 goals in as many matches against a Helensburgh outfit that is yet to hit the net this season.

The Women’s Division 2 face off with Bulli Juniors AWAY at Bulli Park and the Women’s Over 30’s also are AWAY to Helensburgh.

In the Men’s Illawarra Premier League this weekend all three grades are AWAY to Wollongong Olympic.

The Sharks First grade squad are desperate to return to the winners circle after suffering multiple defeats in a row after their first round victory. Coach Brendan Anderson has a major task ahead of him this weekend in rallying his troops who suffered a home embarrassment last weekend. Maximum points are needed this weekend.

Meanwhile, the Youth grade squad are beaming with confidence sitting perched in the top two of the ladder after a nice victory disposing of Albion Park last weekend. They cannot afford to drop points with a number of teams nipping at their heals, one being Olympic, which makes this fixture very important. Consistency is the key.

The Under 18 squad, who came from behind 3 times last weekend to snatch a draw showed the true fighting spirit of the Woonona Sharks picking up their first point of the season. Their match up this weekend doesn’t get any easier with Olympic unbeaten thus far and with 12 goals and zero against sure seems to see them enter the match as underdogs. However, if they start like they finished last weekend a major upset could be on the cards.

The Men’s Masters have the bye.
