We took on Ferntree Gully at home for round 9, who had come up from division 4 and have been competitive this season.

Chirnside played a competitive 1st half and our 2nd quarter would have been the best brand of football we have played for the year, going into half time 8 points down.

The boys were fired up after half time, and some missed opportunities cost us dearly in the 3rd quater and 18 points down at ¾ time, we still felt we had a chance to win the game.

A disappointing last quarter with injury and lack of fitness saw Ferntree Gully run away with the game, and we didn't score in the last Quarter.

With a young team we are not getting wins on the boards however are seeing some great development in our young kids who have recently come up from the U19's, special mention to Kingy who played 2 games and come up to help from the U19's this week.
