As well as calling both Ongerup Football Association games at the Landmark Country Football Championships from East Fremantle Oval on Saturday July 8, the first being from 10.45am, a live-stream of the WA Womens’ Country North versus Country South match the following day at Leederville Oval, from 9.15am, will also occur. And, immediately after, the Mens’ Division 2 Grand Final (whether OFA plays in it or not) will climax the ‘My Retro Media’ 2017 Landmark Championships coverage. Why not immerse yourself in the cream of country football this weekend?
‘My Retro Media’ will live-stream all Ongerup Football Association games at this weekend’s 2017 Landmark Country Football Championships from the Perth metropolitan area. Join co-commentator Shane Knapp, OFA stats man Wayne Bartholomeusz and myself for the uninterupted calls.
Rounds 2 & 3 will be contested on Saturday July 8 at East Fremantle Oval, the schedule is…
10.45am OFA v Goldfields Football League
1.45pm OFA v Eastern Distists Football League
The Division 2 Grand Final at Leederville Oval on Sunday will start at 10.45am, hopefully involving the OFA. Gary Bartholomeusz
I apologise to you if you wanted to listen to yesterday’s Ongerup Football Association versus Great Southern Football League match in Gnowangerup via the ‘My Retro Media’ website and heard nothing! Something went horribly wrong and I still don’t know what. Hopefully it will be rectified for the continuation of the Landmark Country Championships in Perth on Saturday July 8. OFA won by 40 points. Frustrated and sorry. Gary Bartholomeusz
‘My Retro Media’ will broadcast the Great Southern Football League grand final between Mount Barker Bulls and North Albany Kangas this Sunday, September 18, from 2pm. The red & whites won the round three clash by 27 points this season but Mount Barker was successful in the last three by five, eight and four points. The latter being in the second semi-final. North Albany, Western Australia’s oldest football club in its Great Southern region (dating back to 1897), will be playing for its 27th league title. The Kangas won 15 premierships in the Albany Football Association, five in the former Southern Districts Football League and, this Sunday, will be chasing its seventh title in the GSFL. Since its inaugural season in 1994, Mount Barker seeks its second league premiership. The green & black’s sole crown came against Railways in 1996 and lost grand finals to Royals in 1999 and North Albany in 2005. It’s anyone’s ball game on Sunday! Hope to have your company…
Follow Ongerup Football Association’s attempt to win this season’s Division 2 Landmark Country Championship on the weekend of July 9 & 10, 2016, when ‘My Retro Media’ covers its games uninterrupted kick-for-kick. OFA plays the Regional All-Stars at 11am on the Saturday and Eastern Districts that afternoon at 4 o’clock. Both these qualifying matches will be played at East Fremantle Oval (ATOM Stadium) and the call is expected to start around 15 minutes before each game. If successful in making the grand final, you can also listen to the live broadcast from Leederville Oval (Medibank Stadium) from around noon on the Sunday.

Round 1 games will be played across the State before competition continues and concludes in Perth on the weekend of July 9 & 10. MRM will also cover all OFA games in Perth and its four finals as well. Joining me in commentary from 6.45pm for the forthcoming GSFL v OFA clash will be GSFL Director Adrian Marshall. We hope to have your company…
(1) Second Semi August 29 : (2) First Semi August 30 : (3) Preliminary September 5 & (4) Grand Final September 12. All live broadcasts start at 2pm
A live broadcast of the Round 14 game-of-the-day in the Ongerup Football Association will not happen this Saturday as I have a commitment of higher priority. Tim Green, Tate Barrett and myself will be back to call Jerramungup versus Newdegate in Round 15, the last qualifying round, on Saturday August 22 from 2 o’clock
Borden Magpies, following last Saturday’s first win of the season against Lake Grace / Pingrup at home, travel to Jerramungup this weekend to do battle with the second-placed Eagles. Although the win / loss record between these two teams is very lop-sided this season, Jerramungup (2nd 10/2) has experienced bottom side Borden (1/11) has performed more competitive against the reigning premier than anyone expected. Twelve-year-old apprentice commentator Tate Barrett will call this game along side me from 2 o’clock this Saturday via this website or at Great Southern Radio 1422AM.
Despite another team being sandwiched inbetween top side Gnowangerup (10/1) and third-placed Newdegate (8/3), a likely Ongerup Football Association grand final rehearsal will be played at Gnowangerup this Saturday, August 1, in the Round 12 game-of-the-day. The home team’s sole loss in 2015 occurred against Newdegate during the second series. Spot two on the OFA ladder currently belongs to Jerramungup (9/2), the reigning premier and winner of six of the past seven flags. There is no doubt that, in the mind of most people involved in the Association, the crown will be won by any one of the three top sides. And those not attached to Jerry Eagles, will probably be hoping for a Gnowangerup versus Newdegate grand final. The Bulldogs won its only OFA title in 1996 (by one point against Borden) and Newdegate, winner of four OFA premierships, has the longest current title drought – spanning back to 1991. Newdegate has beaten Jerramungup only once, by four points in last season’s second semi-final, over the past decade and seem to match up better against Gnowangerup. The question of which team of the latter two will go into the forthcoming finals with a 2/1 ratio over its opponent will be answered on Saturday…it promises to be a close encounter. Gnowangerup won Round 2 this season by 13 points and the Lions Round 7 by 21 points. Listen in from 2pm via ‘My Retro Media’ or Radio Great Southern 1422am this Saturday.
