ROUND #16 (03 SEPTEMBER 2023)

Killarney 7 – 0 Wyoming

After failing to record any club championship points in the two lower grades, Wyoming entered their first-grade clash with the League Champions already relegated as the under-strength Tigers side recorded their 14th loss of the season.

It took the Terriers just two minutes to open the scoring against Wyoming after Andy Klijn turned his defender in the box and expertly converted to give his side the lead.

The next goal of the contest didn’t come until the 34-minute mark when again Andy Klijn was able to finish for Killarney after a well-worked move down the right-hand side.

The Terriers were awarded a penalty just moments before the break as Andy Klijn stepped up for his side and looked to secure his first-half hattrick. However, fill-in goalkeeper Jared Mcnee saved his effort as the score remained 2-0 after the first period.

Killarney continued to dominate, and Andy eventually got his hattrick just 10 minutes after the restart with a neat finish.

Next on the score sheet was the returning Jayden Radford who finished inside the six-yard box after another great play down the right.

Veteran Tim Knight decided he wanted to get in the goalscoring action and went on to record a twenty-minute hattrick with goals in the 66th, 71st, and 87th minute against a tiring and defeated Wyoming side. 

Chris Ackerley spoke on how finishing the year with that momentum will hopefully go a long way in the 2023 Finals Series. “Nice way to end the league with a big win. A huge achievement to win seven league titles in a row. On to the semi-final series and hopefully continue our good form.”

ROUND #18 (27 AUGUST 2023)


Wyoming 1 – 7 East Gosford

Following their poor showing at Kanwal last round, East Gosford did some soul searching and were determined to come back this weekend and perform to the level they know they can reach.

It didn’t take long with their opening goal coming after 25 seconds with Oliver Vanderslot pressing the defender straight from the kick-off to cause a mistake where Oli rounded the keeper and hit Ayden Ercan in the box for a great opener.

From that point, the Rams pretty much dominated with fantastic movement off the ball which Wyoming couldn’t cope with, recording another 4 goals inside 20 minutes. at 5-0, Wyoming were awarded a penalty following a tackle just inside the box after a breakaway which Zac Hall calmly converted to take the game to 5-1 at halftime.

The Rams reminded themselves at the break that they needed to maintain the intensity which they did and created many opportunities to score with intense constant pressure. This led to another two goals in the second period, as the result finished in favour of the Rams 7-1.

Ricky Sansom commented on his team’s performance after the win. “An emotional day for Wyoming with the 10th anniversary of the death of club icon John McLafferty who will always be missed in our game and although they were under the pump all day played in the spirit of the game and we wish them luck,”

“Was an excellent performance from our boys who really stepped up and shook off the week before. Special mention to Oliver Vanderslot who although didn’t score his energy up front allowed the people around him to have space and was instrumental in the goals, great team goals.”

ROUND #17 (19 AUGUST 2023)


Wyoming 0 – 4 Southern & Ettalong

Southern-Ettalong United travelled to Alan Davidson Oval to take on Wyoming on Saturday Night knowing they were going to be part of history playing in the first night game at that venue.

The Lions also wanted it to be a good memory in their quest to play finals football this year and also knew the proud Tigers under the guidance of player-coach Ian McAndrew would be desperate to impress the home crowd and avoid relegation.

The opening 24 minutes of the game saw Southern playing at a good tempo and creating chances in their attacking third but as has been the case for many games for Wyoming they were being denied by the reflexes and anticipation of the Tigers keeper Tom Coventry, who was playing in his last game at Alan Davidson Oval.

The stalemate was broken at the 25th-minute mark when Jack Ellwood spectacularly scored a bicycle from a well-delivered Jacob Lepre corner.

Jack Ellwood was playing a prominent part in the game and provided the delivery for Southern’s second goal in the 54th minute when he found Charlie Polson on the back post, who finished well to put his side 2-0 up.

At the 60th minute, it was again Jack Ellwood in the game when from a long throw James Steer headed down to Ellwood to score his second and his team’s third goal.

The scoring was complete in the 80th minute when Jack Ellwood secured his hat-trick when he headed home a Jacob Lepre free kick which rounded off a good performance for the team from Southern Land.

“Wyoming Club should be congratulated on a great promotion of the game and the development they are putting into their young players. Whether they avoid relegation or not they are mindful of the future and developing the players that will take them there,” stated Dale Eggleton.

Dale also added, “I was pleased with our concentration and the tempo we sustained throughout the ninety minutes.”

Ian McAndrew commended Southern and Saturday night’s officials post-match. “Southern were very good considering they had up to 13 players out in their whole squad. They controlled the game and had a lot of possession. Their class players were the difference on the night. Good luck to Dale and his team in the Finals.”

“I will also say it was great to have two quality officials on the game it makes a huge difference when as a playing group you have trust in them. Credit to Luke and Miles. If only we got that consistency every week.”

Ian also gave huge praise and admiration to his loyal goalkeeper who played his last game under Wyoming and McAndrew. “This was our keepers Tom Coventry’s last ever match for Wyoming and on the Coast. What a career and what a player, by far the best keeper in the league and he could have played in any squad, but he stayed loyal to me and Wyoming even when it got tough between the sticks cause we let him down.”

“If it wasn’t for Tom it could have been 8 or 9. He has been massive for me ever since I have coached him. All the best Mr reliable!”

ROUND #1 (13 AUGUST 2023)

Berkeley Vale 8 – 0 Wyoming

Berkeley Vale put together another masterclass performance this past weekend when they finally got to play their make-up game from round 1, picking up their second 8-0 win this season.

The game started fairly even with some minimal chances for the Wombats. Wyoming never really threatened other than some set pieces which the home side handled quite comfortably.

After Berkeley Vale scored their first goal, they got better as the game went on and were able to score the second one soon after the first.

Wyoming had a great chance to get on the score sheet and make it 2-1 to keep the contest interesting but were unable to capitalise as Berkeley Vale made the most of their chances at the other end of the pitch and finished the first half with a convincing 4-0 lead, ultimately sealing the win in the first half.

A further flurry of goals in the second half saw Berkley Vale record another empathic 8-0 win as the opposition Wyoming falls to the bottom of the Club Championship ladder with just three rounds left to play.

Ashton Hurley, Kane Woolston, Tristan Bellmore, and Nick Trengrove all recorded a goal to their name while Jakob Brownlow recorded the remaining four goals to take his tally of the year to 12 and jump into first on the MPL Golden Boot Standings.

“Finally, we got to play our make-up game from round 1 to even out the games played on the table. My team was super focused and ready to play Wyoming knowing that it will be nothing like the game we played before as players from Wyoming returned from overseas,” voiced Andre Gumprecht.

Andre also expressed his joy with his side’s dominant performance as they move up the ladder. “At half time I communicated the importance of continuing pressurising Wyoming to make sure we not conceding any goal. My team did extremely well to score another four goals with some of the goals being the best goals I’ve seen this season.”

“I am very happy for the team to get our well-deserved three points to climb up the ladder into third spot.”

ROUND #15 (30 JULY 2023)


Wyoming 0 – 5 Woy Woy

In a substantial day for both clubs in regards to the club championship ladder and trying to avoid relegation, it was Woy Woy who took advantage of a subpar Wyoming to claim their second win of the year and a vital three points.

All the chat leading into this game for Neal Morris and his squad was about the key areas that have let them down for several weeks.

Woy Woy started the contest very confidently keeping the ball for long periods of time and putting the pressure on the opposition before Jack Arigho put a lovely ball up to Nathan Baker who cut back in finding Matt Jacobsen on the run who was overlapped by Brady Holmes to score the opening goal with a great finish. 

Woy Woy continued to take charge of possession and confidence kept growing as Neal’s side was able to grab another goal to head into the break at halftime 2-0 up away from home.

“It was great to see the lads full of confidence after what they had achieved in the first half, but for well knowing how dangerous it was to sit on two-nil with a crucial 45 still to play,” explained Neal.

The second half started the same with Woy Woy playing with plenty of urgency, disrupting any of Wyoming’s attempts to play while mounting plenty of pressure on the opposition goal every time Woy Woy got the ball.

Woy Woy continued to create opportunities and were clinical in front of goal, scoring another three goals in the second period to walk away 5-0 victors for their second win of the season.

“Full credit to Wyoming, they never gave up till the end, but we were on today,” voiced Neal.

“We played to our strengths and played confident football consistently throughout the ninety minutes to get us home. This sets us up for a great showdown with Avoca at home next week. Special mention to Matt Brooks who debuted for first grade and claimed man of the match.”

A very honest Ian McAndrew spoke after the game as he praised the opposition as well as stating his side must be better if they wish to play MPL football in 2024.

“We were horrible today and Woy Woy took advantage of that, my team needs to learn to take our chances if we want to stay in this league. Woy Woy had three outstanding players, Brady, and Matthew both players who made the south side and Matt Hogan, they made their team tick without them they would have struggled. Credit to Neal for an outstanding game plan.”

ROUND #14 (23 JULY 2023)


Wyoming 0 – 0 Avoca

Avoca made the short trip to Alan Davidson Oval this past Sunday to meet the relegation-battling Wyoming side who looked to pick up crucial club championship points in front of a home crowd at ‘The Den’.

It was an extremely tough match, as expected between these two clubs that had hoped for better things this season.

The contest was a very even game again as both teams had glimpses where they dominated the contest but couldn’t trouble the opposition with much significance as a few chances were created.

Avoca had several half chances but failed to really trouble the Wyoming GK and backline for the entire 90 minutes.

Wyoming had the best two chances of the game, including a one-on-one, but could not capitalise as they had to settle for their third draw of the season, climbing their way out of the bottom of the MPL ladder with a point that could be crucial heading into next week’s massive fixture against Woy Woy.

“All in all, a pretty dour match,” voiced Shark’s Neal Hide. “Credit to Wyoming who will obviously fight in every match to avoid relegation and they still try to play out from the back, instead of just hitting long balls, huge kudos to Coach Macca for wanting to play that way.”

Ian McAndrew also commented post-match, “We had two really good chances we couldn’t capitalise on which hurts cause at the back of the game, we were really pushing and going at Avoca.”

ROUND #13 (16 JULY 2023)

Kanwal 1 – 0 Wyoming

With both teams needing to win for vastly different reasons heading into their fixture this past Sunday, this saw both teams set up in defensive formations hoping not to give the other team any early advantage.

It worked for the first 20 minutes with neither team seriously troubling the other. However, this would all change with a Kanwal corner headed towards goal by Jason Cozens which took a deflection off a Wyoming defender into his own net.

The rest of the half again was a tight defensive affair with neither team having any clear-cut chances. Kanwal had a few crosses delivered across the face of goal, but nobody was there to capitalise as the Bulls entered the half-time break with a 1-0 lead.

With both teams still in the game, the second period again began like the first, with no one wanting to make a mistake as the majority of the game was played in the middle third.

Kanwal looking to double their lead and Wyoming looking for the equaliser, both teams would again create some half chances but neither team could capitalise.

Wyoming would make a number of changes in the last 20 minutes in an all-out attempt to attack Kanwal and get something out of the game. Kanwal were able to deal with this pressure and although it was a nervy, last few minutes, Kanwal would prevail and keep a second straight clean sheet and walk away with a crucial 1-0 win.

Ryan Walker was relieved at the end of the game. “A great determined defensive effort today and it was extremely pleasing that we minimised our mistakes, gave very few chances to Wyoming, and kept a second clean sheet.”

“We need to keep that up leading into the back end of the season if we are to challenge for a top-four spot. Wyoming made it hard for us all day and I wish Macca and the Wyoming boys luck over the remainder of the season,” spoke Walker.

“It was a very even game played between the middle third,” declared Ian McAndrew who also added, “We had the better of the game but could find the net.”

“Their back four and keeper deserve a big mention they were good today especially Porter who organised them so well.”

ROUND #12 (02 JULY 2023)


Wyoming 0 - 3 The Entrance

After seeing defeat in the two lower grades, the Entrance claimed crucial club championship points thanks to their best performance of the year which saw the Reddies leave Alan Davidson with a 3-0 win in first grade.

The Entrance started the better of the two teams and looked determined to get something out of the fixture from the first whistle. The Reddies were awarded a golden chance to go ahead when fouled in the box and the official awarded the opposition a penalty.

Club veteran Zac Anastas stepped up for his side, scoring his first penalty since 2017 to give his side a 1-0 advantage away from home.

Talented youngster Jai Rose who was given his first start in first grade was making his impact on the game from the early stages.

Jai received the ball on the edge of the box, turned and fired a screamer which found the top corner, giving the Wyoming keeper zero chance of saving the shot as he doubled the Entrance’s lead to 2-0.

The Entrance’s hot form continued in the second half and from kick off a long ball down the left found Lachlan Pettitt who squared the ball to an oncoming teammate as Jai met the ball to slot home to extend the lead to 3-0 and secure his second goal of the day.

The Entrance scored an almost identical goal again later in the half, but this time was deemed offside by the official as the game finished 3-0.

“The Entrance played really well and deserved the win but the player who tore us apart was Jai Rose. He was outstanding. I wish the young fella all the best at Sydney FC, well-deserved move for him,” voiced Wyoming’s Ian McAndrew.

ROUND #11 (24 JUNE 2023)


 Terrigal 4 – 1 Wyoming

A cold night under the bright lights of Pluim Park saw Terrigal extend their winning streak to three games, their longest of the season, against a defensive Wyoming side who failed to get the best of the O’lads in the round 11 match of the round.

Despite the trying temperatures, the Terrigal side were up for the battle as they got the chance to play on the main pitch and also to showcase they were better than the performance the last time they faced Wyoming.

Much like their first meeting, Wyoming set up again with a deep line. Operating with five at the back and looking for Terrigal to over-commit players and catch them on the counterattack.

Terrigal started the game well but struggled to find the final ball in moments. A scrappy first half saw them take a rather fortunate lead around halfway, with a cross from Mark Partridge catching out the opposition goalkeeper and landing just under the bar to give the O’lads a 1-0 lead at the break.

After the halftime talk, Terrigal focused on the principles in which they needed to improve. In the second half, they were much more dominant, scoring some excellent goals.

The second goal came again down the left side, after switching the play Terrigal managed to get Mark Partridge free on the overlap, he delivered a wicked cross that found a great diving header from Daniel Bird which flew far post past the keeper.

A third came shortly after with a great bit of link-up play through the midfield released Stu Adams in behind the Wyoming defence, who in turn delivered a perfect cut back to striker Mahkye Brownlie who lost his marker in the box and fired home.

At 3-0, Terrigal were in complete control until a sloppy error playing out gave Wyoming a chance to run at their defence. Jack Clipperton shot from the edge of the box and the ball slip through Terrigal’s keeper’s hands and bounced off the crossbar into the back of the net to give Wyoming some late hope.

However, the game was finally put to rest from a corner that was met by captain Jai McNamara who headed home for Terrigal’s fourth of the night as the O’lads secured wins in all three grades.

A very pleased Pete Edwards spoke on his teams win post-game, “A much better second half from us, that showed the quality of football we’re capable of producing, especially on a good playing surface. “

“Credit to a young Wyoming side who worked hard all game but ultimately we had the quality and possession to get the points. An important round with all squads picking up wins in a nine-point Saturday. We’re all keen to keep this momentum going into next weekend as we travel to Woy Woy.”

Wyoming’s Ian McAndrew also spoke on the fixture, “It was a game of two halves, in the first half Terrigal had all the ball but our shape was holding them at bay until a shot cross saw them take the lead.”

“In the second half, I had to make two changes due to injury, this resulted in our shape becoming very open and a lack of communication. Terrigal was really good to exploit us, and they ran away with the game. Congrats to Terrigal on the win.”

McAndrew also applauded his team, especially the youngsters making their debuts. “I would also like to praise the six players who made their starting debut for the club in first grade, five of them being under 19 and they held their own for long periods of time against one of the best teams in the comp.”

ROUND #10 (18 JUNE 2023)


 Wyoming 1 – 4 Berkeley Vale

Entering round 10 coming off their first loss of the year in the previous round, Berkeley Vale were determined to bounce back to winning ways when they travelled to ‘The Den’ this past Sunday to face the Wyoming Tigers.

The start of the contest was quite a flat affair until the 20th minute when the home side Wyoming were awarded a penalty. In his return game back to first grade, Ian McAndrew stepped up for his side as the maestro coolly converted to give his side the lead.

However, Wyoming didn’t hold their lead for long as a Berkeley Vale corner was not cleared by the Wyoming defence as the ball fell to Mathias Palmqvist who buried his chance to level the score.

Just moments before the halftime break, speedster Ashton Hurley was able to get his first goal of the season, lacing the ball off the crossbar and into the back of the net which gave the opposition goalkeeper zero chance of saving.

The second half saw Berkeley Vale resume the second period maintaining the majority of the ball possession but not mounting many attacking chances.

It was another Berkeley Vale corner that saw them end the deadline in the second half as the ball which was whipped to the back stick met the head of Shane Littlehales who headed back in for Kane Woolston to finish from close range and extend the Wombats lead.

Berkeley Vale were reduced to 10 men after attacker Jakeb Brownlow was shown a second yellow card and his side was forced to finish the match a man down.

Looking to take advantage of the extra man, Wyoming pushed players forward which left them vulnerable at the back and a counterattack saw Kane Woolston left one-on-one with Tommy Coventry as Woolston sharply converted past the goalkeeper to secure his second goal of the day and a 4-1 win for the Wombats. 

“My team need to be more resilient and stop giving away cheap goals if we want to be competitive. We will go again next week against Terrigal,” declared Tiger’s coach Ian McAndrew.

ROUND #9 (04 JUNE 2023)


East Gosford 4 – 1 Wyoming

Having secured their first win of the MPL season in round 8, the Rams looked to keep the momentum going this weekend in front of a home crowd when they welcomed a desperate Wyoming Tigers who were also after the crucial three points.

The spectators were treated to a thrilling first half of football that involved five goals inside the first 45 minutes.

East Gosford were first on the scoresheet, but Wyoming was able to bounce back on level terms thanks to a goal from competition veteran Darren Cooper.

Goals to David McKellar, and Mitchell Wilson-Thomas and a brace from Oliver Vanderslot saw the home side take a 4-1 lead into the break after the Rams took over and found the back of the net three consecutive times to end the first half.

After a clinical first half, neither side could find a goal in the second period as East Gosford recorded their second win of the year, climbing out of the relegation zone on the Club Championship table for the first time this season.

ROUND #8 (28 MAY 2023)


 Southern & Ettalong 2 – 1 Wyoming

SEUFC set a milestone on Saturday night with their very first night game played at ‘The Den’ James Browne Oval. After many years of hard work by past SEUFC Executives the nighttime fixture had finally arrived.

It was fitting to share their first nighttime fixture with Wyoming Tigers and the game was set as a battle of the big cats.

Despite lowering temperatures, a very healthy crowd rugged up to be a part of this historic fixture at the Den.

The game started at a frenetic pace, and it was the Lions that put the Tigers on notice early with quick movement and ball speed in attack.

It would be the Lions that would excite the healthy home crowd by taking an early lead in the 3rd minute when a Todd Balneaves long throw into the goal mouth saw the ever-present Jack Ellwood continue his recent scoring spree and react sharply, firing home giving the Lions an early 1–0 lead.

Both teams traded attacking raids and it was the Lions with the momentum who looked most likely to be the next to score.

In the 12th minute, the attacking Lions’ pressure was rewarded when Charlie Polson carried the ball down the right-hand flank beating a number of the Tigers defenders and cutting back the ball to Matt Caisley who made no mistake with a very tidy finish into the far post side netting, doubling the Lions lead.

Wyoming’s best opportunity of the half came in the 34th minute when Matt Hall pushed forward and laid a pass onto Darren Cooper who fired his shot wide, missing the target.

The Lions created many chances in the first half with multiple attacking raids and set piece long throws putting the Tiger’s defence under pressure which stood strong with a scrambling defence and some great saves by Wyoming’s goalkeeper Tom Coventry saw both teams enter the dressing sheds at half time seeing SEUFC up 2–0.

The second half saw Wyoming return without their captain Matt Hall who succumb to a groin injury which made Ian McAndrew reset his defensive lineup. The Lions looked to start their second half with the same intensity and momentum as their 1st half.

It didn’t take long as a number of attacking raids by the Lions were met with great scrambling defence, goalkeeping, and the woodwork to keep the score at 2–0.

On the 60-minute mark, the Lions coaching staff introduced the quality of Keith Gumbs & James Steer into the game giving a well-earned rest to both Jacob & Joshua Lepre who had impressive 1st half performances.

It didn’t take long for Keith Gumbs to excite the home crowd when in the 71st minute Gumbs unleashed a rocket at goal from a distance only to see it cannon off the crossbar.

The Tigers repelled many of the Lions’ attacking raids and as the game entered injury time the Tigers managed to break away down the right-hand flank with a cross finding Bayley Lowe who manage to get the first touch to beat the oncoming defender and keeper to take the game to 2-1.

Wyoming created another late chance to pinch a draw at the death of the game but Southern cleared their line and took home all three points in front of a delighted home crowd.

Lions coach Dale Eggleton spoke post-match. “Congratulations to Ian and his team tonight they showed great resilience and scrambled well in defence. I would like to thank all the supporters that came out tonight to support the boys and hope they enjoyed our attacking brand of Football.”

“For our boys tonight, it was good to get some players good minutes in their legs, and also rest a few lads up with some niggling injuries. We still have much improvement in our game and need to sharpen up on our finishing and also our defensive concentration,” added Dale.

Ian McAndrew once again had high praise for his goalkeeper. “Again, the best keeper in the league, Tommy, was on fire saving clutch shots and keeping us in the game after playing a full second-grade match because we only have two fit keepers at the moment, In my opinion, he has been the benchmark player of the competition and there isn’t a keeper who could match him.”

Ian also spoke on the opposition as he commended their performance. “Southern are by far the benchmark team we have played this first round, and I think if they can keep everyone fit they will be hard to run down, they are crazy sharp up top and the scary thing is Keith only played limited minutes.”

ROUND #7 (21 MAY 2023)


 Wyoming 0 – 6 Killarney

Reigning League Champs and current league leaders Killarney put on a clinical display this past Sunday, defeating a young, determined Wyoming side 6-0.

Taking control of the contest from the outset, Killarney got their first goal of the day through Tim Knight. After a delightful cross-field pass from Nic Battershae, Tim was able to capitalise and score his 100th Premier League goal, a truly incredible feat for the Killarney attacker.

Just 4 minutes after grabbing the opening goal, Killarney doubled their lead after a cross from Harry Fountain found the diving head of Ethan Hall who spectacularly finished to extend the Terries’ lead.

It took Killarney until the 54th minute to see their next goal as again Ethan Hall produced a spectacular effort from 25 yards out which beat veteran goalkeeper Tom Coventry as Hall secured his brace.

Another dangerous cross into the Wyoming box saw the Tiger’s defence turn the ball into their own net as Killarney took a 4-0 lead in the 66th minute.

10 minutes later, the opening goal scorer Tim Knight turn provider as his corner found the rising head of Will Hamilton who found the back of the net with his effort on goal.

Killarney’s sixth and final goal of the evening came through substitute Declan Ackerley who tapped home from 8 yards out to score his first, first-grade goal of his career.

Chris Ackerley stated he was happy with his team’s performance as he now focuses on another tough challenge next week. “I’m very pleased with the result and another clean sheet which makes it much better. On to Woy Woy next week which will be a difficult game.”

Ian McAndrew spoke highly of the opposition as he expresses what his team could do better when playing against teams of a higher calibre. “Killarney were outstanding today. They played really well, they know their game in and out and make it hard for teams to play against them. In saying that we need to be smarter when it comes to defending our goal better a few goals could have definitely been stopped with some better communication.”

“I can’t fault my team’s effort, but we need to be more resolute in defence. Well done to Killarney, they are by far the benchmark of the competition out of the teams we have played.”

ROUND #6 (14 MAY 2023)


Woy Woy 3 – 1 Wyoming

After a tremendous display last weekend against Kanwal when Woy Woy picked up their first point since returning to the top-flight competition, they returned home this past Sunday to host Wyoming.

Woy Woy knew this game would be physical and that we had to be right on their game to outmuscle Wyoming off the ball.

A great first half saw the home side create many chances and play some good possession football, only to be denied by some great goalkeeping from Wyoming’s experienced and ever-reliable goalkeeper Tom Coventry.

However, Woy Woy eventually got the breakthrough with a well-finished strike from Brady Holmes who made no mistake of his chance to give his side a 1-0 lead at the break.

Nothing but positivity from Woy Woy’s coach Neal Morris at halftime saw his side start the second half strongly.

Woy Woy worked hard to get on the ball again and plugged away with many chances, only to be denied by Wyoming’s keeper time and time again.

Things for Wyoming soon went from bad to worse after a foul occurred inside their 18-yard box and a red card was shown to key defender Mitch Meredith.

Nathan Baker stepped up and convert the penalty and double the home side’s advantage to 2-0.

Woy Woy continued to control the game and scored a third goal through Brady Holmes who gave his side that bit of breathing space that was needed while grabbing his second of the day.

Wyoming were able to get a late consolation goal through Jack Goncalves but it would not mean much as the Roosters secured all three points in front of a home crowd. 

An ecstatic Neal Morris spoke on the win after the game. “Im very pleased with how we backed up performance from the Kanwal game and we got physical and matched them with everything that was thrown at us.”

“We tried our best today, but we were second best again, and Woy Woy taught us a lesson in effort and want,” voiced Tiger’s Ian McAndrew. “They were up for the battle, we had four chances and never took our chances which hurt us. If it wasn’t for the best shot-stopper in the league it could have been a lot more. Tom Coventry pulled off three classy saves.”

Ian also stated, “We will get back to it on Tuesday and get ready for the best team in the comp and get back on track.”

ROUND #5 (07 MAY 2023)


Avoca 0 – 0 Wyoming

Two teams looking for their second win of the year, Avoca and Wyoming met this past Sunday in a fixture that was more entraining than the scoreline suggests.

The opening 45 minutes saw few chances present themselves for either side. The best goal-scoring opportunities would come for Avoca who almost took the lead via two headers, but Wyoming’s defence and goalkeeper were able to thwart away any chances as the sides went into the break level at 0-0,

The second half saw Avoca control the bulk of possession as they were camped in the Tiger’s half for the majority of the second half.

Wyoming struggled immensely with the ball and getting their foot in the game and if it wasn’t for their back five including goalkeeper Tom Coventry, the Tigers would have left Erina High School with nothing to their name.

Once again Avoca could not convert on numerous half-chances as they would leave disappointed with only one point to their name.

Wyoming coach Ian McAndrew stated that his team weren’t at their best today and had high plaudits for Avoca who he thinks will beat a lot of teams if they can perform like they did this past Sunday.

“It was not a great game from us today, we were far by the second-best team but defended really well and held Avoca out. I have to say my back five including Tommy were the best players on the park. Credit to Avoca, if they play like that week in and week out, they will win a lot of games this year.”

Neal Hide declared his team were unhappy with not picking up the win and voiced that when they start converting their chances, they will be a major threat to the rest of the competition.

“Avoca were very disappointed to only draw but credit to Wyoming, they defended with great resolve and determination.  Avoca continues to improve and when they start converting their chances, will be a match for any team.”

ROUND #4 (30 APRIL 2023)


Wyoming 1 – 2 Kanwal

It was a hard-fought and entertaining match at Alan Davidson Oval on Sunday between Wyoming and Kanwal, with both teams entering the contest looking to continue their impressive starts to the season.

The first half was a back-and-forth affair, with Kanwal claiming the majority of possession but neither team created many clear-cut chances as the game looked to be heading into the break at 0-0.

However, the deadlock was broken in the last minute of injury time when Logan Moore dribbled into the box and was fouled by a Wyoming defender, resulting in a Bulls penalty.

James Scott stepped up and calmly converted, slotting the ball into the bottom left corner to give Kanwal a 1-0 lead with the final kick of the half.

Kanwal once again took control in the second half, with Logan Moore doubling the Bull’s lead in the 63rd minute. Goal scorer James Scott turned provider as he played a delightful ball to Moore, who poked it past the keeper to secure his side’s second goal of the day.

Despite going two goals down, Wyoming continued to fight and were rewarded in the 85th minute when returning First Grade captain Matt Hall scored with a left-footed shot to give his side a lifeline.

Matt Hall’s goal spurred Wyoming on to mount a late comeback as they created a flurry of late chances, even having a shot cleared off the line and hitting the crossbar off a corner with only minutes left on the clock.

But the Tigers were unable to find an equaliser as the Bulls picked up a 2-1 win, an impressive third straight win on the road for Kanwal as they move to the top of the table. 

After the match, Kanwal coach Ryan Walker expressed his satisfaction with the victory. “It was a hard-fought win, and I’m proud of the boys for grinding out the result.”

Walker also stated, “We played well in patches, but we need to close these games out earlier. Wyoming is a good side, and we gave them too many chances late in the game which almost cost us the three points.”

“It was a very even game and Kanwal played well and got the two goals that won them the game. My guys fought well and were very unlucky not to pinch a draw,” voiced Wyoming’s Ian McAndrew when reflecting on the game.

ROUND #3 (23 APRIL 2023)


The Entrance 2 – 2 Wyoming

Coming off a fantastic win in their first game of the season, Wyoming looked to keep their winning start alive when they travelled to Pat Morley for the round 3 match of the round.

The match started very evenly between these two young sides. The first real chance of the game saw Wyoming take an early lead after Zac Hall found his teammate Tom Carbone with a great through ball which Tom nicely slotted home from an acute angle to give Wyoming a 1-0 lead.

Less than two minutes after conceding, the Entrance hit back with a goal of their own after a throw-in from Blake Stuart found the head of veteran Zac Anastas who perfectly flicked the ball to Spencer Wharton who empathically finished to take the score level at 1-1.

Both sides had a few half chances to end the half but neither side could capitalise as the score remained locked at 1-1 after the opening 45 minutes.

The Entrance came out in the second period and took the lead after a brilliant counterattack. Wyoming had a freekick in a promising area that was well defended by the Reddies as they quickly transitioned up the field with a swift counterattack that was finished by Entrance saviour Corey Jones whose left foot strike gave the opposition goalkeeper zero chance and the Reddies went ahead 2-1.

However, this lead would only last about 10 minutes as Wyoming were awarded a free kick on the edge of the Entrance box. Up stepped Jared McNee who for the second week in a row slotted the ball into the top corner to give his side a crucial goal.

The last half an hour of play was extremely back and forth as both teams went for the win in the hopes of claiming all three points but neither side was able to find the back of the net as the score finished 2-2.

“It was a fair result and was played in good spirits. Great to have Olly in the opposite dugout again. As for us, our captain Mitch Meredith was outstanding, really holding the back four together,” spoke Wyoming head coach Ian McAndrew when reflecting on the fixture.

ROUND #2 (16 APRIL 2023)


Wyoming 3 – 2 Terrigal

With five experienced first graders out through injury, Wyoming knew their match against the reigning premiers would be challenging, especially with one of those players pulling out 45 minutes before the fixture started which caused interim coach Scott Snodgrass a further reshuffle.

Wyoming set up with a very defensive mindset and looked to hit Terrigal on the counterattack whenever in possession and also looked to hurt their opponents with set pieces.

Wyoming started well and went ahead via a great through ball to Tom Carbone who got goal side of his defender and shot on goal which took a deflection to beat the Terrigal keeper and put the Tigers 1-0 up.

Terrigal dominated possession in search of finding an equaliser and did so through a clinical finish as Wyoming’s defence switched off momentarily and were punished by competition veteran Stuart Adams.

Wyoming continued to sit deep inside their own half and managed to defend well until a great strike from Daniel Bird outside the 18-yard box beat the outstretched Wyoming goalkeeper which gave the O’lads a 2-1 lead at the break.

The second half of play saw much of the same as Terrigal continued to dominate possession but were unable to break down the Wyoming defence to further extend their lead.

A foul outside the Terrigal box after a counterattack led to a Jared McNee free kick that was placed in the top right corner, giving Terrigal’s Joshua Ferragamo zero chance as Wyoming levelled the score.

Terrigal was denied a late goal as the reliable Tom Coventry made a fantastic save as Wyoming was able to get the ball clear after a goal-mouth scramble.

A few minutes prior to injury time, a Harry Dyer freekick wasn’t dealt with by Terrigal which resulted in a well-placed finish by a 17-year-old substitute and First Grade debutant Jordan Stephen who sent the Den into a frenzy as Wyoming went 3-2 up.

From the kick-off, Terrigal began attacking with long balls and this resulted in a one-on-one where Jack Jenkins was adjudged to have fouled the Terrigal attacker in the 93rd minute.

Stuart Adams stepped up for the reigning Premiers, looking to salvage a point for his side but his effort on goal was well saved by Tom Coventry who ensured Wyoming would take all three points against the O’lads.

“A tough result to take for us, in a game we really threw the three points away. Credit to Wyoming who defended with all players behind the ball and made it hard to break down. Their number nine had an amazing game and was a real difficult player to handle and was the difference on the day,” voiced Terrigal’s head coach Pete Edwards.

Pete also added, “I’m proud of the football we played but needed to be more clinical in front of the goal to put the game away when we had the chances. In the end, it’s a game we will look back on and wonder how we didn’t get all 3 points, but that’s football. Missing a penalty with the last kick of the game sums the game up completely for us. We go again next week against Woy Woy at home.”
