Canning City Soccer Club's long season has ended.

Canning City Soccer Club’s long season has come to an end with a 3-0 defeat against Forrestfield United on September 16.

The loss capped off a frustrating season for Canning City, who won only one game out of 20 attempts and finished bottom of the ladder.

The side managed to draw twice – in rounds seven and 14 – and finished with a goal difference of -51.

They kicked on average more than a goal a game, but often suffered frustratingly high concession rates.

In August the side conceded 14 goals in two weeks, while scoring none themselves.

Even when the team scored well, goals against them consistently wore the side down.

One example was in June when the side kicked four goals against Fremantle City, but conceded six.

The following week the side managed to secure its only win of the season, kicking 2-1 against South West Phoenix at Canning’s home ground Burrendah Reserve.

It was a stark turnaround in seasonal form for Canning City, who finished the 2016 season in sixth place, with nine wins from 22 games and a goal difference of +3.
