The Tasmanian Institute of Sport men's team, coached by Dean May (left), has won one game and lost three of its opening four games at the Football Federation of Australia's Institute Challenge series in Canberra this week.

Tasmania's sole victory was against Northern New South Wales, coached by Gary Phillips.

Tasmania won 2-1 through a penalty by Sam Abbott and a goal by Andy Brennan.

Inthe opening game, TIS went down 3-1 to the South Australian Institute, with Hugo Bladel netting for the Tasmanians.

Tasmanian then lost 2-0 to the Victorian Institute and 2-1 to New South Wales. In the latter game, TIS led 1-0 at the interval through a strike by Jeremy Walker.

Any idea of who was in the squad?
Who was in the staff in addition to Dean May?

The only squad members I know are the scorers who are mentioned in the reports.

Ken Morton is a staff member and assists Dean May.

Congrats on the new blog Walter. I welocme the idea of being able to publish comments but I hope people respect the 'privilege' of being able to do so.

It'll be a nice change to get some unbiased and educated articles on a game we all love.

Keep up the good work.

Might be able to help out on names. I understand the squad consisted of 13 scholarship holders and three boys from Morton's Soccer School (maybe a partnership??). Names included Hugh and Declyn Foley, Eli Luttmer, Alex Nandan, Will Abott (not McIntyre), Sam McIntyre, Cameron Sweeney, Jeremy Walker, Andrew Brennan, Hugo Bladel, Ned Clarke.
