Cockburn City 2 v Sorrento FC 3

Gillies wins it in the 95th minute

The Gulls kicked off the 2021 NPL season with a difficult trip down to Dalmatinac Park to face Cockburn City.

Goals from new signing Billy Quinncroft and Jordan Brown had the scoreline level at 2 – 2 going into the final minutes.

A late red card then had Cockburn down to 10 men and Sorrento sensed their chance. They threw bodies forward as Shaun Kilkelly sent a long ball forward into the Cockburn box. Jordan Brown got up well and headed across goal and new signing Neil Gillies smashed it in at the far post, sending the crowd wild.

So the Gulls start with 3 points and next up we host a strong Gwelup Croatia team at Percy Doyle Reserve on Saturday.

The 20’s won 3-1 with a first-half double from Daniel Faichney and a screamer from Tristan Colli who were both working their way back following injury.

The 18’s won 3-0 with a goal from Zech Dabbs and a late double from Kai Matthews capping off a great day for the club.
