Welcome to Durbanville FC

Semi-final victory sets up Rygersdal Final

Our First team overcame FN Rangers in the Premier League Cup semi-final to book a place in the final, scheduled for 7 October, against Rygersdal, who beat Saxon Rovers in their semi-final.

We last annexed the cup in 2013 and will be looking forward to an opportunity to claim more silverware in 8 weeks time.

The result of the Second team semi-final against Hanover Park is still outstanding, as is the Over 40's semi encounter against Tramway.

We are also waiting to confirm 5 junior semi results, the U18's against Table View, the Under 16A's vs Fish Hoek, the Under 16B's against Northpine United, our Under 13B's clash against Fish Hoek and the Under 12's against Camps Bay. 

 

Wacky Wednesday delivers a great result

The Women's Day holiday (and previous evening) produced a very interesting set of Premier league results, the main benefactors being Norway Parks in their title chase as well as our First team as they look to improve their log position.

Our First side enjoyed their 2nd win on the trot, their 3rd in 4 outings, with a superb and hard fought 1-0 victory over title chasing Rygersdal at Klazinga Park.  Well done Carl and team !!!!  This excellent result has seen us close the gap on Bellville City (who lost 0-1 at home to FC Kapstadt) and Vasco da Gama who were held at home by Hanover Park, to a single point.  We are also now just 5 points off 4th placed Edgemead (beaten 2-0 by Norway Parks in a crucial encounter, our Mead rivals have now lost 4 on the trot).

Edgemead share the same 36 points with beaten visitors Rygersdal, although the side from Rondebosch have 2 games in hand, which, if won, will still take them to the top, this after leaders Saxon Rovers endured a disappointing 1-1 home draw with Fish Hoek, the Rovers 2nd stalemate in a row, both against relegation threatened teams.

All this translating to Norway Parks being the only team in the top 6 winning, meaning they share top spot with Saxon Rovers on 41 points (but second on goal difference), both from 20 outings.

We next travel, in the league to Sunningdale City, who thumped FN Rangers 4-0 on Wednesday, as we hope to build on our run of results and eye fifth or better on the standings. 

The Premier Reserve league also had an eventful day, leaders Edgemead sharing the points with Norway Parks, and with Graham de Bique's side overcoming Rygersdal 2-0, they are now just 2 points behind Edgmead and Sunningdale City (who beat FN Rangers reserves 7-0 on Wednesday), crucially our boys have a game in hand, so could go top.  Next up is Sunningdale City, which is the biggest match of the season for our Reserve side, thus far !! Make it happen !!

Many unexpected results, many permutations, much anxiety as the league race hits the final straight !!

 

Tough encounter awaits

Fresh from their 2-1 victory at Fish Hoek on Saturday, our First team face Rygersdal on Wednesday afternoon and will be looking to continue their push for a fifth place (or higher) finish. They will know they are in for a busy afternoon against the visitors, who also share the best defensive record this campaign so far with Saxon Rovers.

This has been one of the most unpredictable seasons for some time in the Premier league and said visitors Rygersdal, with results going their way on Saturday are mathematically top (assuming they win their 2 games in hand on Saxon Rovers) and thus very much in the mix for title honours, a mix which includes Saxon Rovers, Norway Parks and Edgemead, the latter two facing off on Wednesday in a crucial encounter.  Neighbours Bellville City have enjoyed their best season for some time, but at 8 points back, are probably too far off the pace to challenge the leading pack.

Current table topping Saxon Rovers entertain Fish Hoek, no doubt hoping for a draw between Parks and Edgemead, and a Durbanville win against Rygersdal,  and would normally be confident of victory against the seaside visitors but having being held at Hanover Park last time out, anything is possible.

Our Second team will also be looking for three points to maintain their push for Reserve league honours and with the Rygersdal second XI in the lower reaches of the table, will be keen to maintain the pressure on leaders Edgemead and Sunningdale City.

 

Goals galore !!!

As we play out the final third of the Premier league season, with 8 matches out of 26 still left, we will look back on 2017 season being a transitional one for many reasons.  What we will also look back on, thus far, is a season in that you would be guaranteed goals should you watch a First team fixture.

Matches involving our First team have yielded, and excluding Northpine who have suffered a tough season of 14 defeat out of 17 outings so far, the most goals overall, at 87, or otherwise put 4.83 goals per game.  What has made this more interesting, and by nature even more entertaining is that bar large victories over Bellville City and Wynberg, and a large reversal at FN Rangers, all other games were settled by the odd goal, a few by two goal margins.

With tongue in cheek, all this has led to matches being as predictable as to who President Trump's Communications Director is. I am also sure it has given our management and coaching staff headaches of a different kind as to how to balance the team offensively and defensively.  Our record has a certain airline symmetry right now, at 747, (7 wins, 4 draws, 7 losses) and we trust that it is synonymous with both a safe landing for 2017, and a great liftoff for 2018, given the foundation laid across the coaching and playing personnel.

But before we wind down 2017 too quickly, we face Fish Hoek in the Deep South on Saturday, and with our opponents in the middle of a relegation battle, we know we need to be focused to annex the 3 points and further cement our current mid-table position and build on aspirations of a Top 5 finish which is still very much achievable.
