The Bunbury Masters 2017 was held on Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th of June at the Southwest Sports Centre.
There were 10 teams competing, 7 mens teams and 3 womens teams. Teams were divided into two groups.
Group 1 Group 2
Perth Cockatoos 70+ Melville Sharks 50+
Perth Cockatoos 65+ City Beach 50+
Gummy Sharks (L) 65+ Country Ladies (L) 40+
Bunbury Old Boys 55+ City Beach 55+
Pink Pointers 50+ Perth Cockatoos 60+
|Mark Ridgewell was the senior referee for the tournament, with the teams all supplying referees for the weekend.|
|Players came from WA, NSW and New Zealand. The games were played in a good spirited manner.
Saturday evening saw the Bunbury Old Boys put on a lovely spread of locally caught fish and chips which was a bit of a celebration of the event for the teams together.
Results of the tournament are:
The final was contested between Perth Cockatoos 65+ and Perth Cockatoos 70+ teams. The 70+ team had a one goal head start as part of the handicap. Full time saw the 65+ win 4-2. MVP in the final was Ashley Heuchan 65+.
It served as a good hit out before some of the players/teams head to Budapest for the World Masters in August.
We hope to see more of these Masters tournaments with the mixture of Country and Metropolitan clubs participating.
