Kew Premier League

By Sam Gleeson

A record 14 teams signed up this year with high hopes of winning the 2023 Kew Premier League and taking home the Sayid Cup. Teams from Year 8 right through to Year 12 qualified for the finals, but in the end, it came down to a battle between the Year 12s (Dare Finkum FC) and the Year 10s (The Rat Pack).

In front of a huge crowd, the Grand Final ended 1-1 and went to extra time, where Toby slotted home the winning counter-attacking goal to give The Rat Pack the title. Angus was voted the Grand Final MVP, while the overall winners were Ben (Kew Premier League MVP), Ole (Golden Boot) and Bayley (Golden Glove).

In the Girl’s Kew Premier League, the Grand Final was between the Year 10s and a combined team of Year 8s, 11s and 12s. In was a tense game early on, but goals from Jessie and Nat (from half-way) ensured the combined team were the ultimate winners with a 2-0 scoreline.

Thanks to all the players and fans who came out to watch in droves over the six weeks.

Kew Premier League (Junior)
In Term 4, it was the Year 7 and 8 students time to shine as 9 teams took their place in the field in the hopes of attaining Kew Premier League glory. The Grand Final was a decided between the best Year 8 and Year 7 teams with both going through undefeated and scoring plenty of goals with an attacking brand.

At halftime with the scores locked at 0-0, it looked like anyone’s game, but it was the Year 8s who broke the deadlock with 5 minutes to go, before running out 5-0 convincing winners in the end.

It was great to see so many talented young players and we are really excited for what the future holds for these students.
