MATCH PREVIEW: Glory take on rampant Jets in Round 3

An unbeaten Glory side take on the Jets in their first away game of the season.

The unbeaten Glory take on Newcastle Jets at McDonald Jones Stadium as part of another massive double-header.

The spirits and confidence levels are high at the club’s Dorrien Gardens home, with both coaches praising the impact of the imports ahead of Round 3.

“Intensity is really high and everyone’s really motivated, and I think that just facilitates good football,” Assistant Coach Jessine Bonzas said.

“They (new signings) came late in the pre-season, but I think they’ve started to gel with the local girls now very well and it’s evident on the park,” Despotovski added.

The Jets were rampant 4-0 winners over Melbourne Victory in Round 2, but despite the impressive attacking display, Bonzas insists the focus is on their own form.

“We’re going to focus on our own game,” she said.

“We’re going in with really good form too, so if we go in with good form and we take care of possession…then hopefully we’ll nullify their strengths.”

Head Coach Bobby Despotovski is looking forward to the match-up against Newcastle Head Coach and friend, Craig Deans.

“It’s going to be a hard game,” Despotovski insisted.

“His (Deans) sides are always organised and always give 100%.”

The Round 3 fixture will also have a strong National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) flavour, with Alyssa Mautz and Vanessa DiBernardo taking on Chicago Red Stars teammates Jen Hoy and Arin Gilliland.

Key match-up: Jen Hoy v Alyssa Mautz


The battle in midfield will be a familiar one for the Chicago Red Star pair, with both players already proving vital assets for their new teams. The American duo could prove crucial to their sides, as the attack-minded midfielders look to get off the mark this season.

Star: Melissa Maizels

New Glory number 1, Melissa Maizels, has made an inspired start to her time at the club. Her crucial saves in Round 1 and match-saving display against Brisbane last weekend has seen the former Canberra United player win many plaudits, including Glory keeper coach and former Charlton Athletic player Andy Petterson. “She’s coming for crosses, she’s doing well with the ball at her feet, so we’re really pleased with her,” he said. The Melbourne-born keeper will be hoping to add to her first clean sheet this weekend against Newcastle.

One-to-Watch: Patricia Charalambous

The fullback has made a very promising start to her W-League career at Glory, with the gutsy defender showing fantastic vision and work-rate down the left-hand-side.

Soccer: Melville City bestows life membership upon departing women’s coach

December 05, 2016 By: Penny Category: Club Noticeboard

AFTER 15 consecutive seasons without a single missed practice, departing coach Gary Crerie has been unveiled as the latest Melville City Football Club life member.

It is the first time life membership has been awarded to a coach who is not also part of the club’s committee and is reward for the long service Crerie has given to Melville City.

The retiring Crerie coached the women’s metropolitan squad and some of the current players have been playing for him for his whole 15-year tenure.

After coming closing to folding five years ago, the team has rebounded to come close to topping three separate divisions in consecutive years.

In 2012, the team struggled for numbers and played each week three players short.

After reaching out to friends and recruiting players who were in the team as juniors, the 2014 side won Division 3 to earn promotion, the following season finishing equal top in Division 2 and losing in the Metropolitan Cup semi-final.

Again promoted for 2016, Melville led Division 1 all season until a loss in the second last game of the year against bottom-side Kelmscott dropped City to second.

“The success of the team has been down to the players’ resilience, determination and good nature,” Crerie said.

“Football is a great team game, a reflection of life and fosters the ability to grow as community-minded people.

“It is also great exercise and amongst all this you won’t find a better bunch of women and girls anywhere.”

In leaving, Crerie praised his team’s spirit, its persistence, ability to learn and improve and tenacity to lead three different leagues in three years.

“We need some new players to top up the squad for 2017 and another successful year, we hope,” he said.

“It has been a great joy and experience for me to be a part of this team and to see these girls growing up and supporting the Melville City Football club and community.

“Some have volunteered over the years to coach juniors, join the club committees, fundraise and become role models representing their State and country.”
