Southern Ettalong vs BUFC F’s

Black armbands and a minute’s silence were the order of the day at South Ettalong’s home ground, in remembrance of South Ettalong’s Michael Dean who died tragically of a heart attack on the field the previous week. When the whistle blew it rapidly became clear that South Ettalong were in no mood for fooling around, […]

Avoca vs BUFC F’s

Clear blue skies and an Indian Summer temperature of 23 degrees greeted F-Grade at Frost Reserve in Kincumber, where the team was set to enjoy an unprecedented four reserves. Thirsting for redemption after last week’s five-nil loss, Barnstoneworth took to Avoca with gusto and the passing game we’d been practising all year finally came together. Yet […]

Gosford vs BUFC F’s

The coldest match day of the year so far saw Terrigal run out onto Duffy’s after the game was re-scheduled from Gosford’s home ground and moved to 3pm. The prospect of beer immediately after the game followed by a segué into more beer at Breakers without having to travel provided a strong incentive. With an […]

Mountains vs BUFC F’s

After driving for what seemed like hours to the remote rural region of Mangrove Mountain, avoiding trolls under bridges and bands of roving peasants brandishing pitchforks, F-Grade prepared to take on the leaders of the table on a beautiful, soft green pitch. Following an extensive briefing from the grizzled referee, Terrigal won the toss and […]

BUFC F’s vs East Gosford 1

On first glance, this game was only remarkable in that it was the first that Barnstoneworth Fs had played on their home ground at Duffy’s Oval. Perfect sunny conditions and a companionable chat with the opposition before the game belied what was to come. East Gosford opted to kick off, but after ten minutes of […]

East Gosford 2 vs BUFC F’s

It’s often said that football is a game of two halves, and that was amply demonstrated in F-grade this week against East Gosford 2. Having not played for three weeks due to the combination of a bye and two rained-out games, Barnestoneworth Fs were not only a little rusty, but missing two wingers and several […]

Woy Woy vs BUFC F’s

It was a fine day to take on the arch-enemy of Woy Woy in a friendly game of soccer. Barnstoneworth turned up with two reserves, and on a slow and uneven pitch continued their form of recent games by letting in a goal from a corner kick in the first five minutes. The strategy of “kick […]

BUFC F’s vs Avoca

Having been wound up by Trevor Husk all week on Whatsapp about the hated Avoca, the Fs took the field with three reserves on a sublime piece of turf at Jubilee Oval. Feeling confident after a tough mid-week training session, the team’s ambivalence was shattered in the fifteenth minute when Avoca landed the first goal. […]
