View Full Version : Sydney Palace vs Brighton supporters 2017 edition

15-10-2017, 03:24 AM
Saturday 28th October 2017. Kick off 11:00 at the Kings School in Parramatta.

We have less than two weeks to go till our annual supporters match where we take on Brighton. Lots of new talented players have been added to our ranks this year to go along with the seasoned veterans so let's hope we can improve on our 0 wins/3 losses/1 draw record vs. them (plus their ex-pro ringers) this year.

Attached is a pic from last year. We would love to see more Red & Blue shirts in this year's!

This year a film crew from Optus Sports will be attending and getting footage for a feature of the game to go on their network. For those back home, Optus Sports is the channel with exclusive rights to the PL over here.

$25 for players, $10 for supporters which includes a BBQ, beers and raffle following the match.

Later that evening we will be meeting up at the Palace Hotel on George Street in Sydney hopefully to celebrate our first victory against them and watch Palace vs West Ham (kick off 01:00 Sunday morning).

Any interested players or spectators are all welcome so please get in touch either by replying here or PM, or by visiting the Facebook page linked below.

Thing is, the Brighton players get more practice as they also play for the Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United fan teams ;)

The two young Mineagles played against Everton the other week. Unfortunatly the older one is off to the Cox Plate in Melbourne, but the younger one shin splints allowing is in.

Game day today in Sydney and it looks like we are going to have a great turnout. As usual the weather has warmed up and we are looking at another match in 30 degree heat.

Still would love to see as many supporters wearing red and blue as possible. There is still plenty of time to cancel all other plans and get to the King's School in time for 11:00 kick off this morning.

From their side they've had ex professional players Paul Reid (plus his brother) and Lloyd Owusu play the past few years. Not only these guys, but they call in a ringer goalkeeper every year who's dad confirmed he isn't a Brighton fan. They are a sad bunch over here too!

On our side no ex pros sadly. Will make it even sweeter if we can beat them.

If it's the fairly short (for a GK) dark haired guy with the beard, I'm pretty sure he played for Palace in the 2015 game.

Disappointing to only draw 3-3, Palace were the better team on the day without a doubt!

We had a great day thoroughly enjoyed by all and the money raised will go to a good cause. We'll have to wait another year to finally beat them.
