It’s playing with everything we’ve got.
It’s remembering the people who have worn the jersey before.
It’s representing the jersey, the club and our community.

The Belconnen United U12's PL team played three games against some strong quality teams, performing well in two games (averaging 3-0) wins but came across a strong Tuggeranong team in their final game, going down 2 nil.
The games during the day gave the coaching team some ideas for the season ahead, looking at different combinations and was not deterred by the results against Tuggeranong United, who played well on the day.
Some moments that caught the eyes of the coaching staff and spectators were:
Game 1 - Great passing between Dylan and Sam allowed Cooper to chip the keeper ... Great GOAL!!!
- A pass from Riley between two defenders allowed Cooper to put Alexander through on goal as he slipped it past the goalkeeper ... 2 goals UP!!!
- Marko provided a great move and put Cooper though on goal to make it ... 3 goals and a WIN!!!
Game 2 - Belconnen started quickly, which allowed Alexander to shoot the ball wide before a one touch football saw Cooper and Marko give the ball to Odhran who didn't let an opportunity like this go unpunished ... 1 UP!!!
- Great save by Matt from a rocket outside the box and what's a day without a bicycle kick from Odhran ... unfortunately it went wide.
- Other special moments in this game saw Ethan centre the ball to Odhran, who found James on the back post, but it was deemed offside but still it gave the boys confidence for the remainder of the game. Jacob, who had been leading the defence, made a great run into the box smashing home James’s corner.
- Some unfortunate tackles from the opposition saw the boys dig deep and with a penalty awarded, Odhran shot home a smashing shot which they tell me, the posts are still shaking!!!
Game 3 - This game was always going to be tough. Tuggeranong United showed they will be hard to beat this year but pre-season results are just that ...
- Some great defensive efforts from Matt, Jacob, Rohan, Ryan and Sam saw some good clearing moves that left Tuggeranong frustrated at times.
- Goals were definitely hard to come by in this game but a strong gritty performance from the boys will see them performing well for the 2015 season.
We are ready for the season ahead ... so bring it on!!!
