Finish on a high

Captain Sean Lewis says ACE will not ease up in their last match of the season against premiers St George Willawong tonight. The Premier League title has been decided. St George lifted the trophy in midweek and after two successive titles. ACE finish as runners-up. But Sean, the most successful skipper in ACE history, said:…

Be positive and strong

ACE have had five titanic battles with Toowong in the last two seasons – and Sunday’s clash at Wolter Park, kick-off 5pm, is shaping as the sixth. Playing styles may differ, but the honours are even – three draws (1-1, 2-2 and 3-3) in regular season matches. One win each in finals football. Ryan Shaughnessy,…

Four grand finals

CAPTAIN Sean Lewis says ACE must not let their high standards slip over the last three weeks of the season. “We must go to the very last game of the season,” he warned ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Taringa at Wolter Park, kick-off 4pm. ACE are currently second on the Premier League Premier ladder, eight…

Goal-den chance

ACE striker Josh Cartman, pictured above, can’t wait for tomorrow’s local derby clash with Grange at Wolter Park, kick-off 6pm. “I love the big games,” he said. And this Premier League encounter could hardly be any bigger. ACE are third on the ladder, one place and four points behind Grange, in second. Only St George…
