Junior Committee Announced for 2021

posted Dec 13, 2020, 11:27 PM by CooksRiver Titans

The Cooks River Titans are pleased to announce the formation of a Junior Committee for 2021.

Amy Brown, Jake Brown, Billy Angelopoulos and Cooper Steel took an active role with the Club this year on matchdays.  Not only did they act as Game Leaders (junior referees) but they also assisted with other match day activities including field set up, crowd marshalling and canteen duties.

Amy, Jake and Billy joined Cooks River in its inception year in 2015 and have been involved since. This season the Club was not able to accommodate them on the playing field. Amy’s team disintegrated following the change in female age groups skipping odd years and Jake and Billy’s team collapsed due to COVID-19. Amy managed to play elsewhere but Jake and Billy refused to play anywhere except for the Titans. For Cooper, it was his first year with the Club and plays in the Under13s. He assisted one morning when he wasn’t able to play for his team and loved it from the start. The Committee noticed this passion from all four children so found a way to keep them not only involved in the Club but to be further engrained in the Club culture.

When asked a couple of weeks ago if they would again be interested in assisting on matchdays, the response from them all was swift and emphatically positive. As such, the Committee felt it appropriate to formalise their involvement through the formation of a Junior Committee. They have been given the same black Club polo top as worn by the Club committee members to signify their status within the Club. The Club is proud to have them onboard for 2021.

The Cooks River Titans Football Club were awarded the Crystal Cup Club Championship for season 2020.

The Cup is awarded to the Club which had the best overall performance on average from all its competitive teams (Under12s up to Over45s). It is the first time the Club has won this prestigious trophy and in the last 4 seasons has been won by 4 different clubs all winning it for their first time.

The trophy and plaque were awarded to Club President Nick Kambounias at the 2020 CDSFA Annual General Meeting by retiring CDSFA Director Michael Bourdoulis.

The Club would like to thank all our amazing parents, players, coaches, managers and the committee for making achievements like this possible in only the Club's 6th year since its inception.

Titans Win Four Championships in 2020

posted Oct 6, 2020, 5:43 AM by CooksRiver Titans   [ updated Oct 6, 2020, 6:02 AM ]

Our Under12 Division 3 Girls team was only assembled this year from a handful of girls who played in the U10s and then the Under11s Mixed team the past two years. The rest of the team was made up of friends and other girls who were merely looking for a team to play in, some of which had never played before. In fact, the team only had one friendly game together back in March but the signs were there as they won 1-0 with only 8 players against a team which had 11 on the park and 4 substitutes. In the end, the girls played a total of 13 games to record 12 wins and one draw. They did not lose a single game. They scored a total of 88 goals and conceded just 3. Simply incredible statistics. In a shortened season with no finals series, the Titans girls won the competition with two games to spare. A truly amazing achievement for coach, George Madouris and the group of 14 girls most of which are not yet 12 years of age.

Our Under12 Division 5 boys team was a team that coach David Kavanagh had coached the past 3 seasons. He lost some good players last season when his Under 10s team was split into two Under 11s teams, however his dedication to coaching exemplified by his completion of all the available CDSFA coaching courses, started to reap rewards. The Titans were picking up good results and were sitting solidly in second spot but were at one stage 8 points behind 1st placed Abbotsford. A few indifferent results from Abbotsford opened the door for the Titans who were on a winning streak. Abbotsford held the lead all season until last weekend of the season where both teams were then level on points but the Titans held the advantage on goal difference. It was truly a Grand Final on the last day of the season. Their only previous meeting ended in a draw. A draw was all that was needed by Cooks River last Sunday but coach Kavanagh stated his team will be going out for the win and that they did. They got off to a flying start and stunned Abbotsford with their intensity and determination. It was so overwhelming that they went into half time leading 4-0. Abbotsford tried to fire back in the second half and managed a goal but when the Titans scored again it sealed the victory and the championship for 2020.

The All Age Division 8 men for the most part have been with the club since it’s inception six years ago. Player-Coach Lee Stebbing assembled the team in 2015 and has continually developed the squad so much so that in 2017 they won the Division 9 championship. In 2018 they were promoted to Division 8 and went back to back in winning the grand final. Last season they were promoted again into Division 7 where they were unlucky to lose in the preliminary final. This season they were initially in Division 7 but when leagues were cut down to 8 teams per division they were shuffled down to Division 8. Stebbing again added to the team at the start of the season and it proved instrumental as they took the competition by storm winning 12 games, drawing one and losing just one, scoring 53 and conceding just 9. This is the team’s 3rd championship in the last 4 years.

The final team which won the 2020 competition were the All Age Division 11 men. A handful of players were remnants of the 2017 All Age 13 Division championship winning team which also made the 2018 grand final in the All Age 12s. Last season they were promoted to Division 9/10 but ended up losing the Division 10 grand final. This season, there were initially in Division 10 but again with the reshuffling of divisions they were dropped to Division 11. Coach Phillip Fourlas was devastated last season so made some very important additions across all areas from the goalkeeper to the front line. The team ended up with 12 wins, 2 draws and no losses, scoring an incredible 69 goals while conceding 15.

Two virtual "Grand Finals" on Sunday at Gough Whitlam Park

posted Oct 1, 2020, 4:13 PM by CooksRiver Titans

Some huge games coming up this Sunday at Gough Whitlam Park in what is the last round of the season. Two games are virtually considered "Grand Finals" as the top two teams in both divisions play each other in the final round to see who will finish first in their respective competition.

At 9am the U12/5s do battle against Abbotsford. Abbotsford held the lead all season until last weekend. In their last 5 games they have only recorded one win and had 3 draws and one loss. In contrast, the Titans have had one draw and won their last 4 matches on the trot. Their only previous meeting ended in a draw. The teams are so evenly matched that their win/draw/loss record is identical at 8 wins, 4 draws and 1 loss.. As both teams sit level on 28 points, a draw is all that is needed by Cooks River to take the title as they have the superior goal difference but coach David Kavanagh has stated his team will be going out for the win.

At 11.15am the U14/1s have a big clash against Enfield Rovers. Enfield had led the table for the majority of the season but a recent draw saw Cooks River take the lead only for Cooks River to suffer a subsequent draw and again relinquish the lead. In their last 5 games they have both won 4 matches and drawn one. The Rovers took the spoils on their only previous meeting winning 3-0 but the scoreline didn’t really reflect the game. Enfield sit on 30 points with 9 wins and 3 draws while the Titans have 9 wins, 2 draws and one loss to sit a point behind on the table. If Cooks River can inflict Enfield’s first loss of the season then the Titans will be crowned champions. Coach Sasha Jovanovic has his players well drilled and go into the game with confidence they cap off a great season with a win.

As we know there will be plenty of interested attendees on Sunday, we ask that you be COVID-Safe by signing in via the COVID QR code (located near the BBQ area), use the available hand sanitiser located at several areas and always practice social distancing in accordance with the NSW Health Orders. If you have been overseas or to Victoria in the last 14 days or are showing any signs of illness please refrain from attending.

Please find the schedule of matches for our teams this weekend.

Note: the U12/5 and U14/1 are both playing at Gough Whitlam Park on Sunday in a top of the table clash which will determine who will be crowned champions for 2020.

On Saturday, the AA/3 and AA/5 both currently sit in second spot and need a win but also need the team in first to drop points to claim the championship. Can these teams join the Under12Girls, the All Age 8s and the All Age 11s as Champions of 2020? Time will tell.

Good luck to all our Titans!
