SEMI FINAL WEEKEND
On Sunday, the Pakenham Reserves Team ventured to the Berwick Football Ground to continue their push in the 2016 Finals Series against Narre Warren in the 1st Semi Final. Narre Warren have had a fantastic record against Pakenham over the last 7 years, not losing against us during that time and rightfully went into the game as favourites.
Pakenham had been gaining confidence over the past 6 weeks and we went into the game knowing our best would certainly match it with Narre. In perfect conditions for finals football, Pakenham started the game well against Narre and they were certainly surprised with our effort at the contest.
A quarter time fracas, saw emotions boiling, but Pakenham went into the second quarter with a mindset to play the ball. At half time we had a 3 point lead and the boys knew that the third quarter was pivotal in the final.
Pakenham were fantastic, kicking 3 goals 5 to no score and the game was our now ours to lose. The coaching staff, implored to the players that the game wasn’t over and that we all know Narre and they will come out and give it their all.
That’s exactly what happened. Narre got back to within 3 points, before Pakenham re set and kicked the final 2 goals of the game to book themselves into this weeks Preliminary Final against Cranbourne.
We go into next weeks game with destiny in our own hands and if we play like we have been playing over the past 7 weeks, we have every chance of making the big dance.

CONCLUSION TO SEASON 2015
On behalf of the Pakenham Football Club Committee, Football Department and Players, I thank you for being a committed and loyal supporter of the Pakenham Football Club in 2015.
While we were disappointed to have missed finals in all grades except the under 18s, we continue to develop our playing list and put in place goals which will take us down the path to future success.
Our ultimate goal remains the same – to win our next premiership, but not at any financial cost. We have undertaken many steps in 2015 to shape our team, both on and off the field, which sets up for an exciting journey in 2016. Already we have signed up Kym Jones – Ruckman and Luke Walker – Utility back to the club next year. Kym is back after spending a year playing in the Barwon Football League and Luke coming back to Pakenham after spending 3 years at KooWeeRup. Luke won last years Ellinbank Football League Best and Fairest and with these two quality players coming back to the club and with Dom Paynter and Sam Blackwood back from Knee Reconstructions, Russell Lehman Glandular Fever, Jason Fisher Broken Hand and Damien Holmes Broken Collarbone, our team will certainly be in good shape. We also have a few more recruits that will add to our depth, which we will be able to communicate in the coming weeks.
This season, due to the amount of injuries through the entire club, we were able to unearth many new Senior Players, from the under 19s and under 18s. These included players like Nathan Johnston, Brayden Baguely, Liam Tyrell,
Players to have improved in the Senior Team like Jarrod Cavalot, Christian Cairns, Stevie Morey and Jake Smith will form the future heart and soul of the club.
Pakenham is shaping up to be a very exciting list for the future, but as Senior Coach Steve O’bryan continually says, there is a lot of hard work ahead.
As we look to next year, we can assure you the preparation for season 2016 and beyond has well and truly begun at Toomuc Reserve. The individuals selected to represent the Pakenham Football Club, as players, coaches and staff, are unified in their hunger for this club to succeed, both on and off the field.
In the coming weeks we will also be communicating our AGM Meeting which we encourage everyone to be in attendance.
While our football season for 2015 concluded on Saturday night, whereby we held our Presentation Night which was a fantastic success.
We would like to thank Nic Muley, Shelly Bevan, Andrew Muley and Jack Anning for their efforts on a fantastic event.
President Steve Moloney thanked all the helpers that make the football club what it is today and made special mention to the Sponsors and Lion Tamers for their contributions to the football club.
As i noted earlier, there will be further announcements in the coming weeks.
Thanks again for your support and lets bring on Season 2016.
