Congratulations Shannon Henwood - Three Time Best & Fairest
A huge crowd squeezed into our Robinson oval club rooms to witness Shannon Henwood become only the sixth player in club history to win three or more senior best and fairest awards, well done Shannon. What about the under 17's the top three all within a vote of each other, and to all the trophy winners well done. I don't have a list on the netball results so hopefully someone can send it to me.

Congratulations to the A Grade Netballers on winning the PREMIERSHIP
And well done to the two under 13 teams, although beaten it was a great effort to make the grand final
Preliminary Final - So Close
The Under 17's had another nail biter against Narre Warren going down in the final minutes to be nocked out of the finals race. After trailing all day the boys fought there way back to hit the lead with about a minute to go, but to then see Narre go coast to coast and kick a goal and then with only seconds to go the boys went into attack only for the siren to beat them. Well done to Stu, Dave and all involved it was a great year and to see all those talented young footballers coming through the ranks makes all us older heads encouraged for the future of the Doveton Football Club.
And what about those Under thirteen netballers, both side into next weeks grand final and don't forget the A Grade side is playing later today.

1st Semi Final - What A Thriller
The boys broke away for a four goal lead in the first quarter with some great hard at it football and looked to be back to there best form. They carried there good form into the second with the first goal, but Cranny came back with two late goals to cut the boys lead to seventeen points at half time. The second half seen Cranbourne claw there way back to level the scores and set up an exciting last few minutes. With only seconds to go every players dream, Josh Battle takes a great pack mark and kicks the ball straight through the middle for a great win, well done boys everyone put in a great game.
Also well done to the under thirteen netballers with the red side winning comfortably to advance to the prelim along with the under thirteen white.
The A Graders suffered there first defeat for the season and will also be playing in the Prelim for a chance to advance to the grand final.
