Kilsyth Senior Men

Round 5

Kilsyth FC vs Croydon North MLOC

Final scores: 14.12.96 Kilsyth, 7.2.44 Croydon North MLOC

Once again after a slow start, and with Croydon North MLOC staying in the game with some straight kicking in front of goal, Kilsyth’s seniors still found a way to stamp their authority on the game.

Playing their brand of football still continues to be the biggest challenge but this week was certainly a step in the right direction.

Jacob Moschetti was again a standout and continues to prove to be one of the A grade midfielders in the competition.

In a great moment for the club, Kilsyth’s latest debutant Josh Jackson, the eight son of a former Cougar to play in 2024, provided great forward pressure that set the standard for the day.

As a group they look forward to building the season and ensuring they play the brand they know is needed to be a successful 2024 team.

Best players: Jacob Moschetti, Mackinley Ayton, Mitchell Jacobs, Ryan McNay, Josh Jackson and Sean Currey

Kilsyth FC vs Waverley Blues
