Weekend Scores (ending 9 October 2016) • South Melbourne Football Club
Our male teams have all now completed their 2016 NPL seasons, following two catch-up matches being played over the weekend. Our Under 16s played out a 0-0 draw with the Dandenong Thunder and our Under 18s beat the same opponent 2-0. We would like to thank all of the team managers, who have worked together with the SMFC media team during the season to provide the referee’s match record for each round. By doing so, it assists us in keeping data as accurate as possible and to track the progress of all our players through the youth system and hopefully into the first team in the future. The below table indicates the performance of each of our male NPL teams this season. Congratulations are extended to our Under 13s, Under 14s and Senior Men on their championship wins. All teams bar one finished in the top three of their respective league, showing sustained success across all male age groups in 2016.
