Krushers Welcome New U/19’s Coach


OAFC are thrilled to announce the arrival of Craig Holton as coach of the under 19s for the 2019 season. Craig comes to us with a wealth of experience, not only as a coach,  and player, but a clubman -he has played and coached cricket, football and golf at a variety of levels. Whilst Craig has a love of football, he also has a love of “club” and will work hard to ensure that our boys develop as individuals, but more importantly, as a team. We wish Craig all the very best for the season and look forward to seeing him lead our team to a great year.

Oakleigh Amateurs went into last weekend with two teams, the seniors and the U/19s, playing in the finals and had high hopes of at least one of them making it through to next week. The U/19s, after finishing third, took on Hampton Rovers at Scammell Reserve on Saturday and started well enough going into quarter time with a 7 point lead. From there, things did not go to plan as the Rovers took control and dominated proceedings as they piled on 5 goals to 1 in the second to turn the deficit into a 19 point lead at the long break.

The second half held little joy for the Krushers as Hampton continued their march and ran over the hapless Oaks who had no answers and were swept aside by 46 points in a disappointing finish to a season that promised much. Dylan Goodwill kicked 2 goals for Oakleigh with Justin McCarthy, Harry Boontjies and Sam Carney among the best.

On Sunday, the action moved to Sportscover Arena at Elsternwick Park where the seniors took part in their first final since 2009. Playing PEGS, the Oaks were underdogs and not given much chance, especially with no recognised ruckmen due to injury. However, the Krushers were always going to give it their best shot and pushed the Bombers early before a couple of late goals gave PEGS a 5 point lead at the first change. The Oaks continued to attack but PEGS always seemed to have an answer and went to long break with a 19 point advantage.

The Krushers managed to cut that to 12 points at the last change but the effort took its toll with captain Gary Bennett limping off and not taking any further part and ruckman Josh Abela nursing a damaged shoulder and some others simply had nothing left in the tank and the Bombers took full advantage of this and piled on 12 goals in the last quarter to blow the Krushers away by 73 points. Aaron Cloke and Tim Scott were the Oaks leading goalkickers with 3 each and Jim Hunt, Chris Pearson and Liam Gillard were in the best players.

Final Scores:

Seniors: Oakleigh 10-10-70 lt PEGS 22-11-143.
Goals: A.Cloke, T.Scott 3, C.Grant, J.Murphy, C.Pearson, J.Rutter 1.
Best: J.Hunt, C.Pearson, A.Cloke, L.Gillard, T.Scott, J.Revere.

U/19s: Oakleigh 3-7-25 lt Hampton Rovers 10-11-71.
Goals: D.Goodwill 2, C.Moore 1.
Best: J.McCarthy, H.Boontjies, S.Carney, D.Goodwill, W.Harris, J.Pearce.


Oakleigh Amateurs claimed fourth spot on the ladder and a shot at the finals in the VAFAs Division 1 final round on Saturday at Scammell Reserve. Hosting the always dangerous Ivanhoe in a must win match, the Oaks were a little slow out of the blocks as the visitors claimed the first 2 goals of the game, any concerns held by the Krusher faithful were quickly put at ease as the Oaks, although inaccurate, kicked the next 5 goals of the quarter to take a 21 point advantage into the first change. The second term saw Ivanhoe get a case of inaccuracy in a fairly even quarter as the lead was increased by a slender 4 points to give Oakleigh a 25 point lead at the long break.

The third term belonged to the Krushers as they piled on 6 goals to the ‘Hoers 2 and went to the final change with a 52 point lead and one hand on fourth spot. An Ivanhoe fightback in the last quarter spurred the Oaks on with 12 goals booted for the quarter, 7 to Oakleigh and 5 to Ivanhoe with the Krushers finishing 61 points up and finals bound. Aaron Cloke was particularly pumped booting 8 goals for Oakleigh with Tim Scott adding 3 and Gary Bennett, Chris Grant and Josh Revere chipping in with 2 each. Jon Rutter, James Hunt and Pat Ioannidis were in the Oaks best.

The early game was a bit less dramatic than the previous week as a polished Ivanhoe proved too good a makeshift Oakleigh outfit copping the end result of injuries. The ‘Hoers got away well with a 5 goal to 1 opening term but the Oaks hit back in the second with 4 goals to trail by 25 points at the main change. Sadly, a scoreless third term by the Oaks did little to help their chances of a good finish to the season as the visitors took their advantage to 64 points at the last change and effectively wrapped up proceedings. The Krushers battled hard in the last quarter but ultimately fell by 77 points. Josh Abela was the Oaks main goalkicker with 5. Brodie Weymouth, Matt Pearson and Haiden Boyes were among the best.

The U/19s travelled to Ramsden St. Oval for a date with Fitzroy and came with the win to finish the season in third spot and the finals. In a low scoring first quarter, the Oaks managed to hold sway by 9 points at the break. A somewhat inaccurate second term by Oakleigh saw them post a 4-10 return to the ‘Roys 2-1 and go to the long break with a 30 point lead. A more accurate third quarter had the Oaks increas their advantage to 42 points at the last change and, after a pretty even last term, they emerged with a 43 point win. Izaiah Elisaia, Dylan Goodwill and Aaron Planksken each kicked 2 goals for Oakleigh with Corey Moore, Justin McCarthy and Griffin McPhee among the best.

Final Scores:
1sts: OAFC 21.19.145 v Ivanhoe 11.18.84
Goals: Aaron Cloke 8, Tim Scott 3, Gary Bennett 2, Chris Grant 2, Josh Revere 2, Trevor Bromley, James Hunt, Pat Ioannidis, Nick Seel
