2003 PLC Rd 2 - Carrum United v North Caulfield



2003 VSF Provisional League Cup: Round 2 (March 10th) Carrum United (Provisional 2 SE ) vs North Caulfield (Provisional 1 SE) Venue: Italo Australia Club (525-531 Frankston-Dandenong Rd, Dandenong South, VIC, 3175)


Sorry about how poor my camera skills were back then. Found this footage at the back end of one of my mini tapes. What I decided to do is keep what I found and uploaded it in its entirety. So its the first goal and then the last 15 mins or so of footage of the game 

The venue was called the Italo Australia Club that was a privately owned venue shared by Carrum United Soccer Club, the restaurant and the lawn bowls club. This place was sold off and Carrum United was forced to find a new home. They then became the current day Skye United and host games at Skye Reserve.

Baxter Park (Baxter) - 2020

Baxter Park's main pitch facing north.
Here are much better drone images that what was presented a few years back of Baxter Park, the home of Baxter Soccer Club. In these images, three pitches are set up for soccer but in the past, the oval to the south of the main pitch has also hosted matches. The main pitch has a very well built pavilion that has a social room and also provides a good view of the matches.

Lawton Reserve facing south-west
Over the years Lawton Reserve in Langwarrin has steadily seen improvements that also coincides with the home club Lawgwarrin Soccer Club move up the leagues. At the time of writing Langwarrin participates in the National Premier League 2. The main pitch pavilion has an undercover seating area that really promotes a good atmosphere on game day with a social room that includes a bar and canteen. Recently the car park was extended that will be very welcomed by the visitors.

Reema Reserve - 2020

Reema Reserve in 2020 facing north.
If I can recall right Reema Reserve was constructed and became the home of Endeavour United back around 2001. The reserve was purposely built for soccer with two pitches and the pavilion on the north end. The main pitch that is used for senior matches is the one to the east. Parking is available onsite as is accessed via Stacy Court.

Power Reserve - 2020

Power Reserve in Doveton facing west.
To find the soccer ground in  Power Reserve, Doveton you will need to drive around the football/cricket oval and head to the back end of the reserve and there you will find the neat little home of Endeavour Hills Fire. The best aspect is that the home club has access to one made for the soccer pitch. The detached pavilion to the west side that has little benefits to spectators except for the canteen but parking is not too much of an issue. You can watch matches from the banking to the east but best if the day is overcast as you could be facing directly into the sun.

Frank Holohan Reserve

Frank Holohan Reserve's main pitch, facing north.
Well, finally I got around to get some drone images of Frank Holohan Reserve, the home of NPL club Dandenong City. For many years this venue has been in existence and since Chelsea Hajduk took over the former Dandenong City with big ambitions the place just seems to get looking better every time with improvements like the undercover stand, clubrooms and parking bays etc. The venue contains three full-size pitches.
