AFTER an “under-achieving” season, Bayswater City coach Chris Coyne says his team will enjoy a seven-week break before returning to Frank Drago Reserve in mid-November to prepare for 2017.

Coyne said he and the players were disappointed with their season, which saw them finish fifth on the ladder and miss the end of season Top Four Cup.

“We are not playing finals football for the first time in five years and that is not acceptable at a club with the ambition and status of Bayswater,” he said.

“We had the best team and played the best brand of football but when the run in came we were caught short when we needed to do things properly.

“We lost the desire and stopped doing the one percenters that win you championships.”

Coyne said winning the Night Series at the start of the season was a highlight but the season contained more lows than highs.
