The Somerville Eagles Fourths team previously competed as our third tier team but will continue to challenge in the same Bayside League Competition. The games are played on Sunday with fewer rounds and more relaxed scheduling than our other mens teams. We are happy to accomodate young developing players alongside our twilight veterans and anything in between.
In our first two seasons we have performed exceptionally well but never quite managed the last hurdle to the top. We have acheived this relative success despite a lot of disruptions and teething issues that accompany any new club at this level.
This year sees a new era however. We welcome the announcement of Damo Finnegan as playing coach which will provide an enormous boost to the midfield and some welcome onfield leadership. Despite his macho appearance and intimidating playing style, he has been known to bring his little “Sooty” dog to training in a hi-vis vest.
We are a real chance to bring home some silverware in 2019 and look forward to playing our Sunday home matches alongside our Womens Team and new Thirds Team. Go Eagles!
