Greetings one and all!
In one of the most active off seasons we have experienced, we have returfed the goal squares (thanks to all the top dressing helpers, and turf laying helpers), we’ve modified our goals so they are removable. We have secured two major sponsors and obviously gotten the new strip. A very special thanks to McDonalds and La Vida Soccer. As well, thanks needs to be given to our Equipment Officer, Clare Hargrave and her willing helpers, for their patience and sense of size, in helping us distribute all the uniforms. That was an enormous effort.
While we still have a long way to go with extensions, there has been progress and the next meeting with Council will be soon.
And lest I forget, the major overhaul of our website, which is still ongoing! Thank you very much to Dane Williams for all the web site innovations and Darren Stride for helping out in the change over.
Needless to say, a great deal of time and effort was put into running the online registration system. Everyone should personally thank Darren for his work in getting our Club through Registration. Debbie Cox put in a tremendous amount of time and effort, as well. All clubs and our Association are in similar positions, it has been a trying period for us all. Hopefully, next year will be easier.
The final change, the Council has been working with us, since the end of last season, to “level out” Mount Preston. The hump in the cricket pitch, while still there, is much shallower than last year. Hopefully, over time this will reduce, even further.
Hoping you all have a wonderful season, from the Under Sixes to the Senior Teams,
Jim Hankins – President, on behalf of the Committee
