                    Doveton v's Pakenham
First up, Haven't we got some injuries I couldn't believe the amount of players on the side lines. Players out injured open the door for other players to show there talent at senior level, six players came in and two were first gamers Charlie O'Niell and Dylan Bowman (see picture) well done boys thoroughly deserved. The seniors won by 55 points and go into the interleague bye in third spot, hopefully the break will give a few of the injured players time to recover. The two's won by 13 points over a determined Paky and remain undefeated, great games by Shaun Kelleher, Sean Semmens and well done to the boys who doubled up from the thirds game. In the Under 19's both sides struggled for numbers and fought out a close game with Nanga's boys getting home by 11 points.

             This week interleague BYE  -   South East FNL  v's  Hampden FNL - Casey Fields
                 Doveton v's Cranbourne     
The seniors held strong for three quarters against Cranbourne being within a point at the last change only to have Cranny kick six last quarter goals and go away for a comfortable win. The reserve won a thriller, ten points down at three quarter time we kicked a goal at the start of the quarter and then four points to level the scores, then with seconds to go the ball is kicked towards goal the siren sounds everyone stops, "uh-oh" the balls still rolling, to late it goes through for a point Doveton win a "thriller", I wasn't even there and I'm excited. The under 19's had no bench and were soundly beaten by the top side, there is a lot of talent in this side and when they get there numbers up they will be a top side.
The club held it's DOVETON IN BUSINESS day with guest speakers Bulldogs stars Matthew Suckling and Jason Johannisen with Shaun Cosgrove as MC, another great turn out for the club.

                      Player Footy Cards
Instead of player pictures I thought it would be a bit more fun replacing them with old style action footy cards. I have missed a few players because I have trouble putting some faces to names, so those I've missed go through the galleries and pick a picture you would like and send me (contact us) your name and picture details, also those who would like a different picture send me the details and I'll change it.

          Round 2 Doveton v's Hampton Park
Great day had by all at the annual Good Friday game with Shaun Semmens (pictured) his 200th and all three teams winning comfortably. The seniors led by Russell Gabriel in the ruck and Taylor Joyce (11 goals) up forward had a resounding win. The reserves started like a house on fire in the first quarter then went to sleep for the next two and got going again in the last to win by 66 points, awesome game by Charlie O'Niell. Nanga's Under 19's had a comfortable 99 point win over Cranbourne B, great games by Declan, Rick and Dylan.
A special well done to Shaun on his 200th game for the Doveton Football Club.

Although Russell Robertson had a quiet day he still managed to take one of his famous speckie's, Craig got the snap (picture).

                Round 1 Doveton v's Officer
Wasn't it great to finally get the season started, and to have a win first up even better.Welcome to all the new players, family and friends and of course all of our regulars and wasn't it terrific to see Rob Gittens and Andy Roberts down from the bush, a couple of old Dovey boys.
Now lets get to the football, the seniors after a slow start took control of the game and were never really troubled and went away to record a 38 point win. How good were big Rus, Pickles (5 goals), Nick, Azza, Spanna and new recruit Taylor Joyce (3goals) his one grab marking a treat to watch, also well done to our coach Aaron (flash) Davey on a first up win.
The two's bolted out of the gates to go into half time 41 point leaders only to drop off in the second half and let Officer get back into the game but to there credit they steadied and run out comfotable 41 point winners. The Under 19's were beaten by 9 points after a few players pulled and left Nanga with no bench, so the defeat wasn't that bad considering.

Doveton v's West Preston Lakeside
Here are some pictures of the practice match against West Preston Lakeside on Saturday, Both sides were well beaten but with a lot of players hopefully coming back in the weeks to come we should do a lot better against Mulgrave and Moe. I would do a more indepth report but I wasn't at the game.
