Due to the unprecedented rain received over the past few days and the condition of the grounds, Hurstville City Council will keep ALL sporting fields CLOSED until Monday when they will be reinspected.
The following decisions have been made at this stage while the Association waits to hear from both Rockdale and Kogarah Councils today (Friday 24th April):
- All O45, O35, PWL and AAW matches scheduled for this weekend have been CANCELLED.
- Premier League, AAA and AAB squad matches will be played on Sunday 26th at venues to be advised should sufficient grounds be available.
- All Junior Girls matches scheduled for Sunday 26th April will be played should grounds be available.
- Outstanding catch up matches (excluding squads) required to be played from previous rounds will be played on Sunday 26th April should grounds be available.
Tracey will advise relevant coaches and managers of any game possibilities via email. You can also check the St George website for updates.
Hurstville Council has closed all fields till MONDAY, therefore no games at the weekend on Hurstville council parks, this includes Gannons Park.
At this stage Kogarah and Rockdale Councils have not made a decision about the weekend.
We’ll let you know as soon as we do.
Watch St George website (and this site) for updates.

Yagoona v Rangers CUP Sunday 29 March
The Yagoona Lions v Forest Rangers Cup will be a special event. All games from U9s up will count towards the cup, and the cup will be presented to the winning club at the end of the day. It will also be a real family day, with the canteen and BBQ running all day and there’s even plans to have a jumping castle (probably not for the all age players – but you never know!).
While we want you to compete to the best of your ability to win the cup, playing the game with good spirit is even more important. Have a great game and do Forest Rangers proud

Enjoy all and Go Rangers!
Well done again to the teams that participated in last weekend’s trials. We had lots of positive feedback from the hosting clubs so thanks to you all!
Now to this weekend. Nearly all teams have a trial game this weekend, including our U6 and U7 teams (as well as their gala event tomorrow night). This is the last weekend of trial games and none of the games are too far away (Peakhurst, Oatley, Rockdale, Sans Souci, Yagoona and Birrong). Most junior games will be on Saturday, although some are on Sunday.
As before, if you can’t form a team please notify Bruce ASAP (email@example.com). You can borrow from other teams if you need some more players.
We’re hoping to post the schedule on Wednesday afternoon so watch this space!
We had a lot of great feedback about our club and teams from the Birrong trials – they were really happy with the day and very grateful that you all spent money at their canteen! Now, we (well, the hard working Bruce) has arranged a huge amount of trial games this weekend as follows.
Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 March: Maroubra
Most junior teams have trial games in Maroubra this weekend (except the U6/U7). These trials will be a special event as they are being played at amazing new facilities which only opened this week – Coral Sea Park. Please check the Maroubra schedule here: Trial games 21_22 March MAROUBRA

We have also managed to secure a range of games at other grounds for the rest of our club teams. Please check the Other games schedule here: Other trial games 21_22 March
If you are short but can form more than half a team try to borrow players from other teams by contacting them directly from the coach and managers list (see below!). If you can’t form a team please notify Bruce ASAP (firstname.lastname@example.org), and definitely by Friday morning at the latest.
Please note that some team names have changed grades and names. Tracey sent a new coach and managers list to all concerned today. If you are unsure about who your team is, please contact your Coach or Manager – we have also asked that they contact you too!
