Pre Season 2017
The Doveton Eagles F.C pre-season training started in earnest towards the end of 2016 under newly appointed coach Simon Caldwell.
The playing group has enjoyed the training over the offseason but playing in practice matches is where the real fitness kicks in. This year the club entered into the Seymour Law Cup run by the SFNL as a pre season tournament held at Springvale Reserve, Newcomen Road, Springvale.

The games were played under lights with the games beginning under twilight conditions. The club played three matches over 3 consecutive Monday nights. It was pitted up against formidable Division one and two sides in the early rounds and although competitive didn't win any preliminary games.
The club finally succeeded with its first victory in the cup tournament against local rivals Dandenong Redlegs in a playoff for 7th and 8th position in the tournament.
