Solid start by both grades

Balmain started season 2003 off with victories in both grades away to Roosters FC on Sunday. The first team played reasonably well in a 3-1 victory, with Dave Hardwick opening the scoring, and Vinnie Leonard bagging a second half double.
In the earlier game, a great first half saw the Reserves take a 2-0 lead. The boys would be a little disappointed that they couldn’t improve on the scoreline in the secnd half. Nevertheless a good start to the season for last season’s champions.
All in all a promising first week, and with a number of quality players still waiting to start their season after pre-season injuries, things are looking good in Tigertown.
