With the finals quickly approaching the Gosnells Hawks football team are working hard to ensure they are ready.

This Saturday, supporters of the league and reserves teams will have one last chance to see the Hawks play at Gosnells Oval for the season.

Hawks treasurer Kevin Wansbrough said the club is encouraging members and supporters to see the team in action at the final game of the season.

The Hawks will swoop into their last match of the season with plenty of wind beneath their wings after a comfortable win in the first round of the finals last weekend.

The colts and reserve teams also performed well at the August 19 games when they competed in the WAAFL C2 Division first week of finals with both teams recording victories.

The reserves games was locked on 15 points to each team at the main break but the Hawks finished the better to win by 18 points with the final scores reading Gosnells 7.11 (53) and Warnbro Swans 5.5 (35).

Hawks player Brett Endersby was named the C2 association reserves runner up best and fairest award winner.

Wade Gallagher, Jayden Pescod and James Bubryzcki were also named best players.

The Colts team lead by captain Kyle Dougan defeated Belmont Districts by 45 points and advanced to the first semi final to be played at Ferndale Reserve with the final score reading Gosnells 13.8 (86) Belmont Districts 6.5 (41).

Players Eric Mitchell, Dmayne Brown, Ben Pate, Stefan Little and Mitchell Withers were all recognised for their skill and sportsmanship.

Mr Wansbrough said it was time to get serious for finals.

“It was a great day last Saturday,” he said.

“It’ll be harder this week with three teams in action.”

The league and reserves teams play the second finals matches on August at Gosnells Oval.

Mr Wansbrough said he was hoping for a good result after a good year by the club.
