The Road To Champion of Champions Finals Continues

Semi Final Time for FNSW Champion of Champions! Who made it?

Congratulations to all the ESFA teams who played last Sunday. Regardless of results, their Clubs and the Association should be proud of the talent within for 2016. Well done to all.

Eastern Suburbs Football Association have three teams remaining in the Champion of Champions. Not bad for a smaller Association! Football NSW tell us that Club wise, Epping FC and Gladesville Ravens have three teams each in the semis. Let’s crow about Dunbar Rovers FC who have 2 teams in the semis. Statistically that is of equal achievement with the two other clubs mentioned having far greater player numbers and with the two Dunbar teams remaining covering the top grade of ESFA Womens and Mens Football, we win on that alone! A great achievement.

Dunbar FC AAM Championship had a convincing 4 nil win last Sunday at Valentines Park and Dunbar FC AAW Championship travelling further afield to Moruya for a more than comfortable victory of 6-1 ensuring the 4-and-a-half-hour road trip was worth it!

Heffron Hawks FC who with a combined total of only 4 Junior Championship teams, now has their U21s secured in a semi-final berth after victory through penalty shootout last Sunday over Emu Plains. This has the U21s more than match ready for their encounter with North Sydney United this Sunday. With the U21s Competition having its debut in 2016, this is a clear indication of the talent involved. Heffron Hawks are seeking triple silverware, having been triumphant in both their ESFA League and grand final.

With Dunbar Rovers AA Men attempting to equal the feat of Coogee United in 2015 who won the ESFA League, the ESFA grand final and Champions of Champions, Dunbar Rovers AA Women looking to better their 2015 semi-final by moving through to the final and Heffron Hawks looking to be the first ESFA U21s in a Champion of Champions final, it all comes down to this Sunday.

Where can we catch the semi-finals?
