2018 Round 6 - Port Melbourne v Footscray

12/05/2018 02:10PM North Port Oval

From the Port Melbourne FC Website - 

We’re back at North Port Oval and next Saturday 12th May promises to be MASSIVE!

After the disappointment of seeing our first two home games transferred, we’re delighted to announce “non-stop excitement” as part of return to our hallowed turf for the Round 6 clash against Footscray!

The day will kick off with our senior women’s team playing their first ever game on the famous North Port in their South Eastern Division 1 clash with Cranbourne at 11:30am, before the unfurling of our 2017 Premiership Flag prior to our VFL side taking on the Dogs.

With an early weather forecast indicating perfect conditions, we’d love to see a typically HUGE show of Borough support!

There will be membership and merchandise sales, a jumping castle and face painting for the kids, the usual food and drink outlets; and even a new-look coffee cart open for business.

There will also be our traditional pre-game President’s Luncheon taking place in the Sandridge Events Centre from 11:45am, which will be themed as a celebration of our memorable 2017 Premiership success and feature retired stars Toby Pinwill, Chris Cain and Sam Dwyer as Guest Speakers.

Tickets are on sale to the Luncheon for $60 to Members and $80 to Non-Members. All are welcome.

Should you wish to reserve your place at the Luncheon, please contact the club via phone (9646 2094) or email (

The day will also mark our club’s involvement in AFL Victoria’s ‘Beyond Blue Round’, and be subject to live TV coverage from Channel 7 from 2:00pm; meaning there will be lots of ways to be involved in what will be a magnificent day for our football club.

See you all there!

Three experienced players back in the mix for the Borough - Mascitti, Nahas and Wooffindin all back in contention.

Saturday will be cool with a top of 15, but no rain expected.

Plenty of AFL level talen in that Footscray side.  Should make for a classic encounter once again.  English (if he lines up) and Roughead as the two rucks for the Doggies will be a tough ask for Haretuku, particularly with Waddell not in the side.

The weather will test out the drainage at Port Melbourne! Lets hope Fortburn Stadium isn't too muddy under foot.  Will they move tomorrows game??

Tomorrows game is ok and from all reports we should be ok for the rest of the season. Hope I am not proven wrong *nervous look*. Kills us playing away from home.

37 times Grand finalists
16 times premiers
21 times runners up - THE MIGHTY BOROUGH!

I'LL BE PORT UNTIL I'M DEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Port Melbourne win by 36 points

channel 7 commentators said the ground is sub standard.

Looked awful off the tv

Huge concern

What a win! 

Just thrilled with how the Borough played the game out. So many positives. I've got lots to say and will post more later.

Hey North Port

Why dont Port fly flags from the Grandstand flagpoles anymore as it gives a great atmosphere 

NorthPort's picture

I'd imagine it's :

a) a wear and tear issue

b) cost issue

c) H&S issue

But truthfully, I have no idea.  I said to my brother yesterday it would have been good to have seventeen flags all flying!

I've started watching the Channel 7 coverage of the game and couldn't agree more re: Harvey Hooper.  I thought late last year when he burst onto the scene that he may be a chance to be rookied.  He's built on last years form and stood out in the first quarter of yesterdays game, when the Borough were looking a little shaky.
