Welcome to Durbanville FC

CHAMPIONS !!

The First team ended a 6 year wait when they sealed the 2016 Premier League title for the eighth time (see Honours List) on an exciting day of action at both Royal Road and Edgemead.

Going into the match leading Norway Parks by 4 points, with 3 to play, the match against Parks had all to play for and we took the lead early with a 3rd minute penalty, only to be pegged back towards the end of the first stanza.  In truth, Parks upped the ante in the second period and we were holding on for for a while, in fairness with clear cut chances on both sides, until a thunderbolt from 30m out, a goal fit to win any title, sealed the deal with 5 minutes to go, 2-1 up.

With Edgemead edging out Hellenic in a 4-3 thriller, it means we now hold an unassailable lead over both Norway Parks and Hellenic and can enjoy the final two league outings as Champions !!

Well done to Graham Purdy and his charges for a tremendous season which has climaxed with a thriller and a well deserved title.

In earlier action, the Second team easily overcame the Parks second stringers by 5 goals to 1. 

 

DC appeal reduces lead to 4 points

For reasons as yet not clear to this website, the 1-1 result between Norway Parks and Rygersdal has been overturned, with Norway Parks awarded a 3-0 victory, and Rygersdal docked a further 4 points.

This means that the lead at the top of the table has been reduced to just 4 points, versus the original 6, making our fixture on Saturday at Norway Parks even more critical in the race for the title. 

 

Vital victory in Premier league race

Our First team continued in their quest for Premier League honours, which would be a first since 2010, with a hard fought and vital 3-2 win over Rygersdal on Saturday afternoon.  This result, allied to Norway Parks going down to Edgemead on Thursday night means we have opened up a gap of 6 points over Parks, both with 3 games to play, however Hellenic are still lurking and if they win their game in hand, they will trail by just 5 points.

5 further points from 3 outings will secure the title irrespective of Norway Parks or Hellenic results, but the fixtures over the next 2 weeks will be pivotal.

Saturday's fixtures are crucial as we travel to Norway Parks, with Hellenic also having a tough assignment at fourth placed Edgemead, the following weekend sees Norway Parks take on Hellenic as we entertain Saxon Rovers in our last home game of the campaign.

So the title is close, however there is still a lot of football to play with all 3 teams still in the mix !!

The second team suffered a major setback to their title aspirations went they went down to the Rygersdal second stringers, and are now level on points with Edgemead, but with a further 2 games played.

The Third team SECURED THE THIRD DIVISION TITLE with a win at Bothasig to ensure an unassailable lead over rivals Vasco da Gama and Norway Parks. Well done guys on a GREAT season and a vindication of the committee decision to play in effect the Colts (allied at times with some experience) in the Third division. 

Lastly, but by no means, leastly, the Over 45B team have one hand on the title, having beaten Queens Park at Saturday and now head the over 45C league on goal difference.  Given the odd nature of the way the league standings take into account, De Beers technically have a further point with a draw against the "Bye" fixture, meaning we have need a point from our last 2 games, as our goal difference is much superior. However it could be that we have already clinched the title...more to follow on this.

 

Premier league chase in final stretch

With cup semi-final action behind us, the Seconds and Thirds progressing to the finals but the Over 45B team unfortunately bowing out, attention moves back to league action as the First, Second, Third and Over 45B teams continue their quest for league title honours.

Our First team take on Rygersdal on Saturday and with close rivals going down 1-0 at Edgemead on Thursday night, our boys, after a 10 day break, have a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of that and know they will take a significant step forward should they collect all the points. A positive a result will put them 6 ahead of Parks with 3 games to play (including the said Parks next week), importantly though just 5 ahead of Hellenic (should they continue their late surge and win their games in hand).  Many permutations lie ahead, however, 3 points will be huge, good luck boys.

The Seconds , who take on Rygersdal seconds, know they need to keep winning to keep the pressure on Edgemead who head the league on goal difference but have a game in hand, with just 4 and 5 games to go respectively.

The Third's will seal the Third Division if they beat Bothasig on Friday night, as even though rivals Vasco could still equal their points, our goal difference is vastly superior. We still of course have 2 games remaining of this.

And lastly, Over 45B team will be looking to overcome the disappointment of their semi-final defeat to seal the Over 45C league, they do not have a fixture this weekend, next up at Queens Park, but trail De Beers by 3 points with 3 games in hand and a minimum of a single win and a draw will seal the deal for our vets team.
