A late weekend wrap this week due to a busy, busy period but we couldn't let this one slide.

Welcoming CCB to a wet Rockwell Automation Park the U18s kicked the day off going down 0-3.

Our U20s got back that winning feeling with a 2-0 win.

First grade has been ohh so close most times this year this was the one to change all that. In a game they looked very comfortable in for most parts the lads finally got the result they deserved with a fine 3-0 victory. Goals to Zac Thomas, James Thompson and Adam Smtih.

Well done lads - C'mon you Bears!!!

Our Women's team were also in action taking on the strong Mayfield team and looking to turn around a heavy earlier defeat.
In a much-improved performance and although going down 2-0 this team is showing rapid improvement as they get to know each other. Well done all.

YOUTH - Round 6

The young Bears have been super this season and facing the Emerging Jets was always going to be a real test. 

Again our lads did not disappoint and even when the going got tough the ability to remain focused, adapt and change was really pleasing to see. Well done all.

SENIORS - Round 7

Back on the paddock after the bye and an enforced wet weather lay off the Bears welcomed the Jets to Rockwell Automation Park. 

The U18s kicked the day off and went down heavily 1-5. The game was impacted by 2 serious injuries and we wish the young lads a quick recovery. 

U20s were up next and also found the going tough against a slick outfit eventually going down 0-4. 

1st grade while still chasing their 1st win could also point to only 1 loss, some excellent performances against heavyweight teams and gritty comebacks. 

For 1st grade today was to be a case of oh so close, lessons learnt and confirmed this young team will continue to improve and entertain. 

the 1st half while a bit of an arm wrestle saw the Bears shade it and could have been put to bed in the 45th minute when a wonderful cross ball was put over the bar at close range by Jamie Byrnes. 0-0 HT. 


The second half continued in the same vein as the first with Weston almost playing within themselves until they forced a turnover in the 51st minute. James Thompson provided a lovely chip pass to Chris Hurley who controlled and fired a wonderful shot into the Jets goal from 20 yards out. 

The joy didn't last long and within 2 minutes the Jets were level through some loose marking in the Weston box. This lifted the Jets and they enjoyed a good 10 minute period of possession.

The introduction of Jake Barner troubled the Jets and in the 89th minute a knock on from Buswell to Barner who found Buswell again saw the striker fire a powerful shot forcing a parry save from the Jets keeper. The rebound found Chris Hurley following in at the back post to slot home for his brace and a 2-1 lead. 

The drama wasn't over and it was the Bears excellent young keeper, Kane Runge, who challenged a through Jets player in the 92nd minute to concede a penalty. Kane read the penalty and saved well but a Jets player beat the Weston defence to the rebound, fired home and stole the draw. 


The Bears are away next Sunday to Hamilton Olympic.

Looking very smart in their Puma kit with commemorative badge to celebrate this historic season the Bears women's team finally had their season kick off against Mayfield.


In a tough first hit out the Bears went down 0-4 but will definitely be better for the game and without doubt there is much more to come from this team. 


Congratulations on your debuts in Bears colours.

Already with some great performances under their belts it was very pleasing to see the teams maintain their approach of playing the right way and treating each game with as much enthusiasm as their first. 


Well done everyone - keep it up!

The senior grades made the well known trip to Adamstown Oval to face old foes Rosebud.


The U18s set the day off to a flyer with a fine 3-2 win. Goals to Ben Priest, Ben Scheib and Will Forbes.


It was great to see the 20s also get back in the winners circle with a 2-0 victory via goals to Will Myers and Lachlan Ragg.



First grade couldn't have started the game any better when after only a few minutes and on his debut for the Weston Cooper Buswell pounced and slotted home for a 1-0 lead. 


What followed in the next 15 minutes saw Weston go from one up to 3-1 down and what was looking like a long afternoon. 


As has been the case Weston are creating plenty of opportunities and there was no shortage in this game either with the finishing just letting them down. 


As the half wore on it was terrible to see former Weston player, double centurion and Honorary Member, Robbie Turnbull, sustain what looked to be a serious knee injury. 

From all of us at Weston and the greater football community we wish you a full and speedy recovery mate. 


The second half began well for Weston as they began to put together a number of promising attacksand it was James Thompson who found the breakthrough finishing expertly to reduce the deficit to 3-2. 


Weston continued to probe and it was an intercept and mazy run toward goal by new lad Cooper Buswell that had people off their seats as he bulged the net and claimed his brace to tie it up at 3-3. 


Adamstown did begin to press harder and had a number of chances. By now the game had really opened up and although both sides could have claimed the 3 point fatigue had its effect on finishing and 3-3 it stayed.
