SKOB make it two in a row

St Kevin’s maintained their unbeaten streak at the top of William Buck Premier with a four-goal victory over De La Salle at Waverley Oval. Ben Dowd was the pick of the SKOB’s as Jay Schulz, Billy Kanakis, Zach Ginies and Mark Jamar kicked two goals each. Adrian Indovino (four) was damaging in front of goal for De La while Tom Humphrey and Jason Tutt led from the front, but they were unable to solidify their first win and sit ninth on the ladder.

St Kevin’s showcased the utmost confidence in their pre-season recruitment policy and have since started the season with impressive victories over University Blues and De La Salle. Tall timber was the main ingredient coming into SKOB with the well-publicised enlistment of Jay Schulz, Mark Jamar and Mitch Brown but having defeated the fast-paced De La by four goals at Waverley Oval, pace seems not the slightest issue.

After kicking just one goal in the first term, the engine room of Ben Dowd and Nick Wood accelerated and helped SKOB to 12 of the next 19 goals while somewhat negating the running power of De La on home soil.

Despite their second consecutive loss, De La will certainly hit their straps in coming weeks with Adrian Indovino’s four goals to close out the match as promising as the ball-winning ability of Jason Tutt and the Williams brothers.

Lizzie's Time to Shine

SKOBFC congratulates Lizzie Wardlaw from the Saints, after her selection to represent the St Kilda Football Club Women's team in an exhibition curtain raiser match before St Kilda v Geelong on Sunday at Etihad Stadium.

The selection recognises Lizzie's great talent whilst also identfying her as a player to watch as the AFL Women's Competition grows in the coming years.

According to team mates, Lizzie is a skillful, intelligent player and lightening quick across the ground. She is a very reserved and humble character. 

All from SKOB wish Lizzie the best of luck on Sunday.


From the St Kilda website:

On Sunday 23 April at 12:45 pm a dedicated team of women will live out their dream of playing at the beloved Etihad Stadium, in front of an excited crowd, wearing the Saints guernsey. The newly establish St Kilda Women’s team will take to the field before the Round 5 clash against Geelong with high hopes of taking home the ANZAC Challenge Cup.

Sully named Round 1 Grill'd Rising Star

Congratulations to Lachlan Sullivan who has been named the Round 1 Grill’d Rising Star for his three-goal haul and starring performance in St Kevin’s 42-point victory against University Blues in Round 1.

Lachlan first started playing at St Kevin’s when he was a student at the college in 2010 and played for the school’s first U18 football team from year 10 through to year 12. He commenced his career at SKOB’S in 2016 having also played with Port Melbourne in that year.

Lachlan plays a lot like Jack Ziebell with his attack on the ball and has many strengths; including, being a tough inside mid providing options up forward, skillful with the football and he is renowned for loving his leftovers at St Kevin’s.

Lachlan has a great work ethic and trains very well in every session.

Senior coach, Shannon Grant, describes Lachlan as having a good attitude for a young guy and that is one of the main reasons he has started so well.

SKOB triumph at the King

St Kevin's has started the 2017 William Buck Premier season in fine style, defeating Uni Blues by 42 points at the King on Saturday.

SKOB led from start to finish to record the seven goal win, eleven skobbers hitting the scoreboard pleasing coach Shannon Grant. 

Here is a brief summary from the VAFA website.  More to follow shortly on the Seniors great start. 

St Kevin’s vice-captain Nick Wood led from the front as his side secured a comprehensive seven-goal victory over University Blues at TH King Oval. Wood kicked three goals for the match and racked up disposals at will as SKOB outscored their opponents in every quarter. Lachlan Sullivan bagged three for the home side while Mitch Brown registered the first goal for the day with a 55m bomb. Ross Young made a successful return to the Blues after a year in the country and Kieran Harper was hard at the contest all day.

Round One is here!

Round One is here!

Finally, after a long and arduous pre-season that's seen the appointment of a new Senior Coach, addition of a second women's team and plenty of blood, sweat & tears behind the scenes, the footy is back this weekend!

It's a significant year for the St Kevin's Old Boys as we celebrate our 70th Year.  In 2017, SKOB will

  • field 10 Teams
  • allow 250+ players to participate each week
  • become the biggest Senior Club in the Country 

It takes a lot of tireless work from a great number of people, and i'd like to acknowledge the tremendous work our committee and volunteers put in prior to the commencement of the season. We still require volunteers on game day, so please put your hand up and don't leave it up to others.

I encourage you also to come down to the King on Thursday night for selection, dinner and a few beers.

That's all from me, but please remember we have our Double Header luncheons this weekend.  I'd like to see the King Rooms packed on Saturday & Sunday, so please get your payments in.

Pre-Season Update


It is not long now until the first bounce and the Club is shaping up beautifully for the 2017 season.  We've had great numbers on the training track and we are full steam ahead with our second women's team, which is fantastic.

Our Players have been through a grueling pre-season campaign, including a camp at Barwon Heads, with some of our up and coming players given the chance to impress in a hit out against the home side. 

Off the field there is a lot happening, so I do apologise for a lengthy report, but it's important we get the information out there and to start getting responses from our loyal and ever growing supporter base.
