Good Evening Roosters,

What a cracking weekend of football! All of our teams got the chocolates. Our 11s and 13s are sitting second on their respective ladders and our younger brigade are becoming quite the formidable outfits. I know I say it every week, but a massive thanks to all those that volunteered on Sunday. Superstars! Each and every one of you.

Fundraising Chocolates

If you haven’t grabbed a box off your team manager, could you please do so. These chocolates raise a lot of money for the Juniors, and if your work mates are anything like mine, they are really easy to sell!

 

Footballs and Equipment

We are going to ask that children bring their own football to kick before and after training.  We will no longer make the club balls available for this purpose. The reason for this is that unfortunately we have had many balls disappear on training nights. The junior Committee have invested a lot of money into training equipment this season and don’t wish to have to replace missing balls. At the rate at which they are disappearing, we will have difficulty in running training by seasons end. If you are to bring your own ball, could you please clearly label it with your child’s name.

 

Training Nights

 

I noticed quite a few cars returning to the ground at the conclusion of training  on Wednesday night. The Junior Committee would like to remind parents that they are not to drop off their children at training without having organised someone there to supervise them. If your child should be injured at training we do not wish to have to  find you. Training is provided by the club to improve and enhance your child’s football skills and knowledge. It is not to be used as a child care service.

Night Game

I can happily inform you that a second night game for this season has been locked in. Richie’s Under 9 Reds will lock horns with Williamstown on Friday July 7th. We hope to confirm one more night game to be played in Round 14. We will give you the details as soon as this game is confirmed.

This Weeks Matches

The planets have aligned and for the only time this season there will be no junior teams playing at home. Please check the fixtures on our website for ground locations and game times.
Please be at the game and report to your team manager at least 50 minutes prior to the game starting.
Under 11s and 13s. Please remember to wear your white away shorts.

Match Reports

The much anticipated match reports are now up on our website. Check them out here.
Thanks to all those that have sent me pictures. I’d still like to see more of them, particularly from the top age teams. We can’t stick them all up in the match reports but we plan on making a large gallery on the website at seasons end so you can all flick through them.

Friday Night Canteen

The canteen should be back in full swing this Friday night as hopefully the council have finished installing the new deep fryer. We would love to see a few new parents stick around to grab a bite to eat and a drink. Get your kids to bring their footy cards to swap.  There should be some quality spare cards up for trade.

Special Rounds

The Junior Committee and Team Managers are planning a few special rounds for later in the season. These will take place in rounds where all of our junior teams are playing at home. More info about this will be in future newsletters.

 

That’s all for this week.

Have a wonderful Mother’s Day all of you Rooster Mums.
