FIXTURES AND RESULTS
bulli FC 1901 v wollongong olympic
An autumn downpour and a heavy pitch greet the players. Olympic will be seeking to make amends for dropping points against Helensburgh while Bulli 1901 have had a slow start to the season and will be hoping home advantage will see them over the line.
An action-packed game. Olympic take all three points away to Bulli FC 1901.
On a hot day with a northerly wind Olympic play Helensburgh with a team of unnamed players for the spectators. The Burgh up from Division Two has started the season with two draws showing they will be hard to defeat. Olympic are favourites, have a couple of players out but with their quality side are expected to take all three points at home
On the offside: the announcer at the grounds are unable to call out the names of the players for the fans because of the way the referees have decided to store the information about game data. The lack of transparency about games in the Illawarra Premier League calls into question whether the data provided by the referees is accurate and affects the integrity of the competition. Referees have been known to inadvertently enter incorrect data on score cards. Puzzled onlookers wonder who is playing, who scored and who are the substitutes. This is to be rectified Round 4 and the squads are to be available on Dribl.
A very close match. Olympic eked out the draw right at the end of the match.
Tarrawanna Blueys v Port Kembla FC
The Blueys lost to White Eagles and Port beat Coniston FC. The Blueys are at home and will be all out to pick up a win. The weather is around 30C with a breathless wind.
An even game with a twist at the end. Blueys win at home.
Port Kembla Fc v Bulli 1901 FC
Both these sides underachieved last year and will be looking to get off to a winning start on a sultry warm late summer with a strong north-easterly blowing down the field.
The IPL starts with Cringila Lions v Coniston FC
Season 2023 starts Friday night with Cringila Lions playing Coniston FC. Both sides were highly competitive last year featuring in the Finals Series. Woonona Sharks after a long struggle to avoid relegation last year have pulled the plug. Replacing them are Bellambi Rosellas who were relegated and are given a reprieve by the Sharks withdrawal. Wollongong Olympic are favourites this year. A team to look out for is Albion Park White Eagles who under-performed given the strong squad they had assembled.
Unfortunately, due to the lack of timely information from the referees about the match details i.e. the match card is no longer available immediately after the game this will be the last post. Apologies for any misidentification and time inaccuracies as these are unavoidable given the lack of information provided to media and public. This issue goes to the integrity of the competition which cannot be publicly scrutinized. Referees are known to make errors recording information which now cannot be checked by match officials or the public. Thank you to all for following this page over the last five years.
