Back to Back Cable Division Champions

Wednesday, August 05, 2015

The 2015 Schoolboys Redimed Cup competition concluded last week with Darling Range Sports College winning their second consecutive Cable Division title over a gallant CBC Fremantle. Darling Range burst out of the blocks early slamming on 5 quick goals in the first 15 minutes of the game. CBC fought hard to stem the flow, though by half time Darling Range had opened up a match winning lead. After the break CBC were able to match Darling Range in general play but couldn’t put that good work on the scoreboard. Darling Range eventually broke away with some outstanding team football to eventually run out comfortable winners. 

John Levin (Darling Range) and Sam Timewell (CBC Fremantle) were presented with the special Schoolboys Redimed Cup footballs used in the match as recognition for being their school best players in the grand final. The Rhys Kampen Memorial Medal was awarded to Jayden Johnson from Darling Range for his outstanding contributions throughout the competition.

AFL Legend and WA Hall of Fame Member Barry Cable, was on hand to present the Schoolboys Redimed Cup and medallions to the players, coaches and umpires.

The Schoolboys Redimed Cup is now in its 28th Year of competition. It’s the largest upper secondary school football competition in WA, with 3,250 students from over 130 metropolitan and country schools competing. Over the twenty eight year journey of the competition there has been approximately 80’000 students that have participated. 

One of the major directions of the WA Football Commission and School Sport WA when the competition was established was to establish Australian Rules Football into all Secondary Schools. Over the years football has provided the vehicle where values like loyalty, teamwork, respect, leadership, mateship, endeavour and integrity are taught. Both teams demonstrated these qualities in a highly skilled display and true sportsman’s like manner

“The West Australian Football Commission is extremely proud to have new program partner “Redimed” on board for 2015 and for the next two years. We thank Redimed for their support as our major program partner. We look forward to their continued support in 2016 and 2017. Congratulations must be extended to all schools involved in this year’s program we look forward to having them participate next year.” Clayton Anderson WAFC Schools Competitions Manager.
