Local

Senior and Youth fixtures recommence this weekend. On Friday, Burdekin Panthers Division 1 team is away to Estates at 6:30. On Saturday, Youth Home Games will take place at Honeycombes Park field 1 and International Park field 2. The Under 14/15 vs Warriors at 9:30am and the Under 13s vs Saints at 10:00am.

On Sunday at International Park, the Panthers have three games against Saints Eagles Souths, starting with the Under 23s at 2:00 pm followed by the Women at 4:00 and finally the Premiers at 6:00pm.

Save the Date! The Clash of Clubs returns this year on October 5 and 6, and the Panthers Ladies Day Date and theme will be announced shortly. Burdekin FC are celebrating Female Football Week, between May 6 and 11. And Sponsors Day will take place on August 3. Finally, the one you have all been waiting for, Night Soccer will kick off on Tuesday September 3.

Last Saturday, Burdekin Panthers played Brothers in the fourth round of the Kappa Cup in Townsville. Against probably the top Townsville team the Panthers played well but lost 1-2.

Burdekin started the game well with Jay Leckenby contentiously being denied a penalty in the first 10 minutes. Both teams were playing a possession-based style of football, with neither team wanting to press too hard. After a lengthy period of sustained possession Brothers scored after a goal mouth scramble to make it 1-0 at half time. The Panthers came out for the second looking to be the better side and Matthew Kolb equalised from an Elliott Dal Santo through ball.  However, Brothers soon regained the lead and although Burdekin pushed forward until the end, creating a few chances to equalise, they couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net. Panthers’ goalkeeper Jarrod Camer had a very good game.

Training at International Park is on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 pm for men and Wednesdays at 6:00 pm for women. New to town? Come down to training and have a run.

Masters

Monday Night Masters had a good turn out and featured a ManU and Liverpool duel. ManU ran out winners 4-2 after leading 2-1 at half time. Player of the Match was Fengil Kanjoothara.  Old and New players welcome, usual time, usual place, 6:30pm at International Park. Treat it as an escape…

National and International

The Matildas kick off in the Paris Olympics with a game against Germany on 26th July. Prior to that they have a series of “friendlies”. On 10th April they travel to Mexico and following that they have two matches against China. The first is at home on 31 May in Adelaide and the second, in Sydney on 3rd June.
The Socceroos having beaten Lebanon twice in the AFC Asian Qualifiers now have two more games left in their Group. They are away to Bangladesh on 6th June and then play Palestine, at home, on 11 June.
In the A League, only three of the top five teams won. Wellington beat Brisbane to go six points clear of Central Coast who lost to Sydney FC. However, the Coast has a game in hand. Victory stays in third place after winning against Perth. Macarthur, three points behind Victory stay in fourth place, one point clear of Sydney despite losing to Western Sydney Wanderers. Brisbane remains in eighth place and Western Utd stay bottom of the league.
In the A League Women, in the final round, Melbourne City beat Perth and with Sydney losing at home to Melbourne Victory, City are champions by two points from Sydney with Western Utd in third place. Victory finish fourth place and Central Coast fifth. Brisbane lost to Central Coast and finish in eighth place. The Finals series starts this weekend with Western Utd v Newcastle Jets and Melbourne Victory hosting Central Coast.

In the EPL with nine Rounds left it is still very tight at the top of the table with Liverpool two points ahead of Arsenal with Manchester City a further point behind. Liverpool beat Brighton 2-1 and Arsenal drew 0-0 at Manchester City. Aston Villa stay fourth and Spurs fifth. At the foot of the table, it is not looking good for Sheffield Utd and Burnley with either Luton, Notts Forest or Everton likely to join them.

In Germany, with Bayern losing and Leverkusen winning it looks to be all over with seven rounds left to play. Leverkusen is now thirteen points ahead of Bayern who now only lead Stuttgart by three points. Dortmund stays in fourth place with Leipzig safely in fifth spot. In the bottom half of the league, only Wolfsburg won, and Darmstadt, Mainz and Cologne look due for the drop.

In Italy’s Serie A, with eight rounds left to play, the city of Milan has it all sewn up. Inter leads AC Milan by fourteen points and AC are six points clear of third placed Juventus. Who, after losing again, is only two points ahead of Bologna with Roma in fifth place. At the foot of the table, it is goodnight to Salernitana and any two of the seven clubs above them.

In Spain’s, La Liga all four of the leading teams won. With eight rounds left Real Madrid leads Barcelona by eight points and Girona by eight. Atletico stays in fourth place seven points away and Atletico drops to fifth spot. At the foot of the table Almeria has won a game at last, but along with Granada looks doomed to the drop.

Finally, in Ligue1 in France, all four top teams won, and PSG stays twelve points clear of Brest. Third placed Monaco is a further point behind, and Lille stays in fourth place. At the foot of the table all four bottom teams lost and Clermont and possibly Metz look doomed.

The 1st Leg of the Europe Champions League Quarter finals starts next week, with Arsenal at home to Bayern, and Real Madrid hosting Manchester City. Barcelona is away to PSG and Dortmund travels to Atletico.

This week’s quote is from star Notts Forest and England star "I can see the carrot at the end of the tunnel."

Roosters Ready To Kick Off The Season

April 4, 2024

The RLTD season gets under way this weekend with games played in Ingham, Charters Towers and Townsville.
The Roosters will have an away game on Sunday with Western Lions in Townsville.
Roosters A grade coach Steve Lansley says he is waiting on allocations from both the Cowboys and Blackhawks before naming his team.
“We have two allocated from the Cowboys and two from the Blackhawks but so far in Trials we have seen only Jeremiah Matuatu from the Cowboys and Christan Gale from the Blackhawks,” the coach said.
“I believe the other two, Henry Tautau from the Cowboys and Ratu Rotavisora from the Blackhawks, could also be on our list this week.”
Reserves coach Chris Perry said he will have a big forward pack with the return of Mitchell Guy, Stevie and Antonio with Mark Cervoni, Zac Campbell and Beau Cowdey at hooker.
Perry added Mitch and John Zaro at half would co-captain the team which would also have Masi Mills, Caleb Noah and the flying Dom Arrate on the wing.
The Monday sisters Martina and Steph with Blackawks Logan Roncato, Talitha Bulgarelli and former Brisbane Natives player Kazzia Lammon could feature for the Hens but they and new coach Anita Hagarty have a real tough game first up with the Lions who have won the past three premierships.
