A model sportsman.
Adrian Harmsen was a truly talented player. He represented an Australian Combined XI in 1954 against New Zealand in Adelaide and also played in the South Hobart FC Premiership team of 1959.
South Hobart FC earned a place in the Summer Cup Div A Semi Finals last night with our 3-1 win over Kingborough. It was a game of two halves with South clearly putting the pressure on in the first half, where three goals were scored, although Lions had their chances. It was
The first on the 8' mark was an own goal by Lions' Jack Turner, this was followed in the 26' when Leszczynski received the ball from Hamlett from the right, and fired early to beat Davey with a long low hard drive. Hamlett was involved in the third goal too at 36' when he one-twos with Hall and then Hall fires home an early strike that flys through the hands of Davey and into the bottom left. That was 3-0 and remained that way at the break.
Lions came out stronger in the second half and tested South early and made the most of sloppy defending, which allowed Dean Watkins to play in Lewis Verdouw, who darted forward into the box and finished neatly into the bottom right. Score now 3-1. South had a few more chances this half with Hall, Mann going wide on their attempts. A goal for each team was ruled offside and Lions had another chance when Watkins shot hit the outside of the upright.
A deserved win for South and great to watch from a spectator perspective.
South's Under 20s defeated University today 0-2 with goals from Jackson Nugent (30' penalty) and Jacob Brennan (70') and also progress.

Our Summer Cup campaign kicked off on Friday night against a strong, classy opponent in the Zebras. Zebras started off well putting South Hobart under pressure, closing down quickly and it got even better for them when McKeown headed home from six yards with a strong header from Zebras first corner—visions of Pascoe Vale.
