To kick off our home matches for 2018, Collingwood City FC is proud to announce that our Seniors and Reserves are playing under the lights that the Yarra Council installed two years back!
The Reserves stamped their authority on the visiting Seaford United FC with a 5-1 scoreline. Pat Makris opened up scoring for the Cityzens, promptly followed by Matt Richardson. Makris would get a hat-trick before the first half closed. The second half started with Seaford United grabbing a goal back before Makris took his fourth on the night.
Our Seniors took to the field with the first home coin toss being carried out by Yarra Council Mayor Daniel Nguyen who was on hand to watch and share a burger with some of our junior players. A big thanks to our local council and councillors for their support!
Some of our Juniors walked out the seniors as mascots as our Cityzens rewarded them with a win. Dom Rossi would beat an offside trap and round the keeper before slotting home our first in the opening of the first half. The second half was a flurry of action on our end as Seaford pressed for a goal. Substitute Kenzo Naritomi would fire home our send, putting the visitor's hopes of points away out of reach.
Our next game will be at home Friday night against Brighton. Reserves start at 6:30 and Seniors at 8:30. Our canteen is open, come support your Cityzens!
