    The Colts 16's Division 1 side won the NSW all conference GF on the weekend against Campbelltown.

    Guessing this is like a champion of champions type event. No mean feat. KBW, you know any more about this?

    Is Bondi Utd the only Easts team with an A Grade these days?

    Lot more travel though, going from Bondi to Carlingford for example rather than Bondi to La Perouse.

    Petty squabbles between grumpy old men making things difficult for kids and their parents.

    And I suspect most open age players will go to Moore Park or Coogee and play in the Souths comp rather than travel to Cronulla every week

    I'm the same age as these blokes + Tom Symonds maybe a few others.
    I was at Coogee Randwick Wombats.

    I didn't know any of them or who played where, so this is just conjecture since then, but .. We finished 1st 2 seasons in a row in u19s (2007-2008 I think). One of those we sailed through undefeated.
    2 years in a row we went out the backdoor of the finals in straight sets, if I recall it was Paddo and Mascot who did us in both years. I remember hearing they got their rep players back in time for the finals. Wouldn't surprise me if a few of the above were involved. We got Jason Clark in for a couple of games too.

    Yeah sounds about right, but I can't say for sure.

    Re. your A Grade question, yeah it's just Bondi United although Paddo Colts came close to running a side this year with Gorgeous George Rose as captain coach (think Colts' ultimate aim is to have a strong A grade). George ended up at Moore Park so not sure what happened.

    Clovelly also ran an under 19's side this year so maybe something developing there.

    Thats great for the Paddo U16s team, although not too many local kids in the side.
    PAddo tried to get an Agrade team but I think they only got 6 or 7 "real" players
