The first round of the 2018 competition season commenced for the Senior Men’s teams this Saturday 07/04/2018 against the Culburra Cougars at home.

We came away with no points on the day, but good performances were put up by all three teams.

3rd Grade – lost 2-3

A great start with George Brown scoring our first goal in the first 3 minutes of play, but Culburra hit back with two goals before ½ time.

Encouraging words from player/coaches Chris Brown & Graham McOmish at the break saw the team re-group and play more fluent football in the second half with Graham putting away the equaliser.

Football can be a cruel game with Culburra scoring the winning goal with a good header from a corner with less than a minute to go before the final whistle.

Special mention to Dayne Spalding, Isaac Grainger & Lachy Mellier who all had excellent games.

3rd Grade debuts made by youngsters Mitchell Thompson, Marley Thomas, Cody Rodriguez, Archie Brown & Joe Michaels – and they will all be better for the run next week.

2nd Grade – lost 1-2

A very even game with Jacob Insley scoring a great goal prior to the break.

Culburra then scored around 15 minutes into the second half to even up the match.

As per the 3rd grade game & the cruelty of football – a defensive lapse saw the opposition score the winning goal with less than five minutes remaining in the game.

Special mention to Jack Eastwood & Owen Browne who were outstanding in a good team effort.

2nd Grade debuts were made by youngsters Lachy Dixon, Zac Stahlhut & Jai Duffy, while converted young goalkeeper Jacob Insley showed what potential he has as a field player in this grade.

Coach Martin Warner was very happy with his charges and they will only continue to improve under his guidance.

!st Grade – lost 2-4

The Culburra Cougars have been finalists, premiers & competition winners in this grade for the past zillion years and have always been known for combining a very physical style with skilful football.

A soft defensive error saw them take the lead in the first two minutes of the game – not the ideal start when chasing a team of this quality.

Some good constructive attacking play saw Basin’s Dane McGinn with a controlled finish to even the scores.

The game threatened to explode on several occasions with some heavy contact and several heated exchanges and this caused Basin to lapse in concentration with the opposition scoring another soft goal to take the lead.

Basin then gave up two more goals while chasing the game in the second half – caught out by excellent counter attacking football.

As is the norm with Basin, this squad will fight to the 90th minute.

A great run from Centre Back led to a skilful interchange around Culburra’s penalty box with new captain Brendan Hobbs putting away Basin’s second goal.

Tyrone Nye-Williams had an outstanding game at right back with a special thank you to O/35’s keeper Colin Crangle who played a blinder for us while we try to fill the 1st Grade keeper role.

Special mention to Zac Stahlhut on playing his first 20 minutes as a sub in 1st grade and playing well.

Overall, the coaching staff were pleased with how the day went in general, but now have more of an idea as to where improvements can be made.

These corrections & improvements are done at training, but we need all the players there to achieve this. Please advise your coaches if you cannot attend training.

Off the field our Fitness Coach Keith Graham & Goalkeeper Coach Peter Watts continue to bring more professionalism to this club.

We still require the assistance of a Manager/s for the three teams and would love the assistance of anyone with Strapping experience to mainly help with 1st Grade.

Please come and share the joys as a part of a Saturday at the football – we could use your help

Round 2 doesn’t get any easier as the three teams are all away to Bomaderry next Saturday.

As stated in my earlier note, our aim this year is to continue building on last year’s results on the paddock but to also continue building a family friendly culture at the Club where all can feel welcome.

Hope to see you there supporting your local club.

Paul Cubbo – 08/04/2018



The second round of the 2018 competition season for the Senior Men’s teams took place this Saturday 14/04/2018, away, against Bomaderry. We came away with 3 points on the day courtesy of 3rd Grade, but good performances were also put up by both 1st & 2nd Grades.
3rd Grade – won 3-1
Congratulations to hard working 3rds who had a great win this weekend. For a match review of this game, please read Co-coach Graham McOmish’s article on this website.
2nd Grade – lost 0-3
A very hard game in trying conditions against a top class opponent. The team never stopped trying all game, but were without Lachlan Dixon, Brad Southward & Jai Duffy for this game. Jacob Insley also suffered a hamstring injury in the second half & took no further part in the match. Thank you to the3rd graders who helped out as subs. In a good team effort, special mention goes to Jack Eastwood, Jimmy Dixon & Ash Hale for their contributions.
1st Grade – lost 0-4
A fast, good quality game against last years Grand Final winners in blustery conditions. The guys played well and kept the opposition scoreless for the first 30 minutes before Bomo opened up their account with a goal past our new keeper Steven King. A great attacking run shortly after saw us denied a penalty when Brendan Hobbs was taken down in the box. While Basin were still contemplating the decision, Bomo quickly counter attacked and scored from a cracker of a shot into the top corner giving Steve no chance of a save.
With the score at 0-2 at ½ time, a decision was made to change our original game plan and go to a more attacking structure for the last 45 minutes. Unfortunately, 10 minutes into the half, Dane McGinn succumbed to a foot injury suffered early in the match. He was replaced by young Zac Stahlhut making his second appearance in the top grade. In an entertaining half, Bomo showed why they are such a classy team scoring another two goals. But to Basin’s credit we also continued to create chances but were unable to complete them. Fraser ‘Froggy’ MacQueen had a blinder and ran himself to a standstill, while Tyrone Williams and Wade Garin also had great games. Zac Stahlhut continues to show that he has all the skills required to become a future 1st grader, while Steve King made a strong return as keeper and will only continue to improve.
Next week 1st & 2nd grades take on Shoalhaven United at Home, while 3rds have the bye.
Thank you’s go Renee Brown for her assistance in filling out the match book for 2nd & 3rd grades and Terry Haberely for 1st Grade, but I will continue to ask for help as all teams require Managers to assist the Coaches – any volunteers??
A special thank you to long time club sponsor Bill Stahlhut for his valuable assistance in getting & keeping two 1st Graders on the field this weekend – we all appreciate you giving your time.
On another very important note, would all players please advise their friends, parents, supporters etc that no one other than the listed players can enter the field of play once a game has commenced, until given permission to do so by the match official. Unfortunately this did happen on two occasions at home last week and cannot be allowed to happen again.
On a brighter note, as stated in all my earlier notes, our aim this year is to continue building on last year’s results on the paddock but to also continue building a family friendly culture at the Club where all can feel welcome.
Please come and support your Basin Dragons next Saturday.
Hope to see you there.
Paul Cubbo – 15/04/2018


3rd Grade – Win 3-1
The second round of the season saw the Basin 3rd grade taking on Bomaderry away from home. A big effort from the boys today saw them taking all 3 points, a strong defensive effort, particularly in the second half was extremely pleasing to see and play alongside, especially with the considerable wind against us.
The game started well for our boys, dominating the first 10-15 minutes of football and getting ourselves ahead rather quickly, pressing well, we ended up with a corner, excellent delivery into the box saw Lachlan Mellier rise above all challengers and hammer it home past a hapless goalkeeper who could do nothing but pick the ball out of his net. 1-1However, the adage proved true, that you are most vulnerable after you score a goal and after working hard to get the lead, a small lapse in concentration allowed Bomaderry to bounce back, a well timed cross and finish left us 1-1 shortly after.
Basin wouldn't let that keep them down for long and following a foolish challenge outside the box we were awarded with a free kick. Graham McOmish had an excellent attempt at a far post cross, only for it to be heavily wind assisted over the goalkeepers head and into the back of the net, giving us a deserved lead back at 2-1.
Basin learned from their previous goal and were extremely focused defensively, not allowing another lapse in concentration and protecting the lead extremely well. Just before the end of the half, a well timed run from George Brown, following a lovely through ball, saw him burst into the opponents penalty box and around the keeper only to be brought down before he could slot home a third. However this lead to the referee giving us a penalty and up stepped the cool, calm and collected Dayne Spalding, 3-1.
Being up by 2 goals going into the second half, an emphasis was put on a strong defensive effort and the boys did not disappoint, everyone in the back line standing out and having a top game, Basin saw out the contest for the remainder of this half and didn't really look like losing their lead. 3-1 the final score and first points on the board, onward and upwards for this group!!!
Special thanks to Dave Duffy for running the subs bench and Andrew Mellier filling in as a midfielder. Special mention to Dayne Spalding, Lawrence Kinnear, Nick Abel, Elaan Duffy and Mitch Thompson who all had excellent games.


1st grade: Basin Vs Sussex: 2-4
2nd grade Basin Vs Sussex: 3-1
3rd grade Basin Vs Bomaderry: 3-0
On Tuesday 17 April the Basin 3rd grade ladies hosted Bomaderry at home to come away 3 - nil winners. Colleen Stahlhut and Molly Brown made comebacks allowing 3rd grade to have 2 subs. Basin definitely had the upper hand for the majority of the first half, having the ball up Bomo’s end for most of it. Frustratingly from about a dozen attempts at goal (by most of the team) the keeper was either too good or someone hadn’t eaten enough Weet-Bix for breakfast for it to go in. Most shots were on target, unfortunately many were too on target and went straight to the keeper. Eventually Colleen scored a great goal, backing up Browny’s attempt not long before half time in her first game back.
The second half looked better as the ladies were playing more structured and there was a lot of great passing going on. Tammy Mackintosh got a run up front and made the most of it by getting around the keeper and putting a nice one in. Leigh Hankin had a cracker of a shot that somehow the goalie managed to get fingertips to and was unlucky to have it just miss but managed redemption by scoring the last goal of the match. As always everyone had a great time and look forward to playing United next week. Well done girls and coach Katrine Brown.
Denae Coventry, Team Manager


The 3rd round of the 2018 competition season for the Senior Men’s teams took place this Saturday 21/04/2018, at home versus Shoalhaven United.
With 3rd Grade having a bye it was up to 1st & 2nds to build on the points gained last week by 3rd Grade’s win.
2nd Grade – won 1-0
In a very hard fought game, Basin went to the half time break at 0-0. Encouraging words from Coach Martin Warner, saw the team come out in the second half with purpose and determination. A goal to youngster Lachlan Dixon, sealed the win in a very good team effort. Thanks to Graham McOmish and Chris Brown from 3rd Grade for their help as substitutes as a few of the regular 2nd Graders were not available on the day.
Hopefully the team can continue their form with a strong display against Callala next week.
1st Grade – lost 1-2
A very frustrating game against opposition that never gave up.
The team continues to play patches of very good football, but lost the game due to poor finishing and poor decision making at crucial times. Discipline was also poor and needs to be better controlled as we cannot afford to have players being yellow carded for 10 minutes during crucial periods.
Our defence was stronger this week with both Ben Cubbo & Wade Garin having solid games. Jake Moffat played well and scored our only goal and had one 35 metre rocket stopped by a brilliant save from the United keeper. His work rate was excellent as he continues his comeback from a knee reconstruction.
Simon Cubbo had a busy game in the centre of midfield and stepped up another notch when the team was reduced to 10 players.
This team will turn the corner but have to find that mental toughness they displayed in the second half of last season. Next week 1st Grade has a bye, so it will be 2nd & 3rd Grades take on Callala at home.
Thank you to Club President Dave Sim for opening up and running a Canteen on the day.
Thank you also to Chris Preece who was at the ground at midday to help set up the field, played seconds, sat on the bench for 1st Grade and then helped take down the nets etc. Every club needs players like this – well done mate.
Lastly, thanks to big Dave Coventry from seconds who stepped up to keep for 1st Grade after playing seconds, as our five other senior keepers were out either injured or unavailable – good effort Dave.
On a brighter note, as stated in all my earlier notes, our aim this year is to continue building on last year’s results on the paddock but to also continue building a family friendly culture at the Club where all can feel welcome.
We desperately require the services of a Manager – especially for second grade to assist Martin.
Your help would be greatly appreciated.
Please come and support your Basin Dragons next Saturday.
Hope to see you there.
Paul Cubbo – 22/04/2018


The 5th round of the 2018 competition season for the Senior Men’s teams took place this Saturday 05/05/2018, away to Sussex Inlet Seahawks. 2nd Grade had the bye this weekend, so it was only 1sts & 3rds that played at the Thompson Street Sporting Complex.
3rd Grade – 0-0
In a very hard fought game, Basin gamely finished with a 0-0 draw.
Co-Coach Graham McOmish has already completed & posted another well constructed report on the game.
Hopefully the team can continue their form with a strong display against Huskisson next week.
1st Grade – won 3-1
Last weeks bye could not have come at a better time for us, as it gave the team time to review the season so far and to reflect on areas where improvements could be made. Yesterday was a huge step in the right direction with a noticeable change in attitude & mindset.
The players stepped up as a team and continuously worked for each other both in creating scoring chances and also by snuffing out opposition challenges on our goal from a very hard working Sussex team. Some short, sharp and well placed penetrating passes opened up the opposition defence on several occasions and it was great to see that we converted on numerous occasions. Connor MacQueen stepped up and was rewarded for his efforts by scoring two sensational goals with his lethal left foot, while Jake Moffat’s trickery allowed him to bag the 3rd goal. Dane McGinn was always a threat in attack, but was also instrumental with strong runs in defence.
Our backline of Wade Garin, Tyrone Nye-Williams, Ben Cubbo & George Haberley were very tough to break down throughout the game and helped settle the nerves of our returning keeper Steve King, who also had a very strong game Thanks to 2nd Graders Owen Browne and Chris Preece for backing us up as Subs.
Another thank you to Renee Brown for her work behind the scenes, this time for filling out the Game Book for 1sts. We still desperately require the services of a Manager – especially for second grade to assist Martin - help would be greatly appreciated.
Craig Holden continues to do outstanding work behind the scenes as Assistant Coach / Technical Adviser to the !st Grade team, continually analysing areas where we can improve. I know that all the team & I appreciate and value his input.
The Committee has asked us as Senior Players to assume responsibility for running the Canteen/BBQ at home games from Noon on Saturdays through to the end of 1st Grade. One suggestion is that a team runs it all on their nominated day. Another suggestion is to roster a time slot during the day for each team to assume the duty. Please think about this and let us know at training this week as takings from the Canteen are vital for the club to buy uniforms, gear, payment to the referees etc.
Next week sees us contest our first local derby for the year against Huskisson at home in all three grades. Please come and support your Basin Dragons next Saturday.
As stated in all my earlier notes, our aim this year is to continue building on last year’s results on the paddock but to also continue building a family friendly culture at the Club where all can feel welcome.
Hope to see you there next Saturday.
