From The President – 12 February 2021

Published on 12 February, 2021

Members,

Welcome to the 2021 Football season! Let’s hope we can have as normal a season as possible with no pandemic related disruption and the weather gods on our side too!

We have a number of new players coming to the club this year and we also have a number of players departing to pastures new. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the new players and also wish the departing players good luck - but also remind them that they are all whales at heart and are welcome back to the club at any time.

It was great to see Summer 5-a-side kick off again last week and we have a huge few weeks ahead as the club prepares for the 2021 winter season, with the MWFA league due to kick off on 10th April. I wish to extend my thanks to our staff and all of the volunteers who work hard to make this happen.

In this email newsletter you will find a number of important season launch events - please make note of these and attend when required.

 I have the first MWFA meeting next week when I will be advised of the updates from the league for the 2021 season, including any COVID related requirements.  One thing we will be continuing is supplying each team with a bottle of hand sanitiser that will need to be used before and after training and matches - if you need any sanitiser, please let your VP’s know and we will supply it for you.

As more information becomes available I will be sure to update you all, please keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram pages for the latest news - if you are not following us please do as this is the best place to get the updates from the club including ground closures.

Anyway that’s enough from me and I look forward to seeing you all in 2021!

Richard

They beat the Northern Suburbs select team 2-1 this week, and they face off against Manly United FC at Cromer Park on Wed 17 Feb, 7:30pm kick off.
