ROCKINGHAM RAMS SENIOR UPDATE 2019
The 2019 home and away season has drawn to a close with the Rams league side finishing with a 15 win and 3 loss season to finish on top of the ladder.
After some early season patchy form where we were 6 and 3 at the half way mark, the players have had a fantastic 2nd half of the season to win 9 in a row and claim the 2019 minor premiership. With this result we have a week off before a home 2nd semi final on the 8th of September.
This result has come about because of a very determined and hard working playing group that is littered with local home grown talent.
At present our league side has;
15 players who played junior footy at the Rams.
2 players who have been at the club for 6 years (our current co captains).
2 players who have been at the club for 3 years.
2 new players this season, and the other is a life member of our club.
What this shows is the fantastic development pathway at our football club.
During the season we have had 10 players make their league debut with 6 of those coming through our junior programme in the last 2 seasons.
What we are trying to achieve with this is a period of sustained success, not necessarily premierships (although that would be nice) but making sure the Rams are highly competitive for many years to come.
What eventuates this year is the unknown, but what I do know is that this league group is the most driven group of players I have had the pleasure of coaching, they will leave no stone unturned in their preparation for a tough and exciting finals series.
The Peel Football League senior competition is a tough competition with any of the 5 sides playing finals having the potential to go all the way.
We are excited by the challenge ahead and looking forward to our 1st final on the 8th September.
Our colts and reserves are also in the finals and it looks like we will have all 3 grades playing at home on September the 8th.
To all or sponsors, supporters, life members and members who have supported us during the year we say a big thank you. We also say we need you over the remaining few weeks of our season, your support is enormous and greatly appreciated by all. Thank you again and bring on next Sunday.
ROCKINGHAM RAMS RESERVES UPDATE 2019
With the 2019 season almost complete we can reflect on a season that
has seen some very competitive football played in the Reserves grade
competition. The Rams group have jelled together very well over the
season which has seen some big wins and some narrow losses concluding
with the reserves finishing in 3rd position behind Sth Mandurah &
The Qualifying final saw us up against last year’s premiers in Sth
Mandurah. The boys got off to a good start and played a brand of
football that suits finals and were in front for the majority of the
day to run out 30 point winners.
Next we took on Baldivis at Anniversary Park in the 2nd Semi Final
with the winner booking a spot in this year’s Grand Final. In a tough
game both sides put their bodies on the line the whole game but with
the fighting spirit the boys have showed all year they came away with
a 26 point win.
Now this week we prepare for a second Grand Final in as many years and
I am hoping that the lessons learned last year will hold us in good
stead.Win, lose or draw myself and the Club is very proud of the way
the boys have continually strived to make themselves and this great
Club better and stronger.

ROCKINGHAM RAMS COLTS UPDATE 2018
A close working relationship between the colts and our junior players is providing a pathway to these boys becoming a big part of our senior club, this is evident with pressure on spots in all three senior grades. The club has a real feel of excitement this year.
Wins against Baldivis, Mandurah, South Mandurah and Pinjarra see us on top of the ladder. With a very even spread of players, 18 different players have gained votes so far with most weeks almost impossible to separate the better players. Welcoming new players and having them step straight up in these games has been pleasing and how quick they have adapted to how we play has shown on the scoreboard.
Good luck to all Rockingham teams this week.
