Free Coaching Courses

St George Football Association are holding coaching sessions for all age groups led by Aytek Genc from SGFA in October and November at Peakhurst Park.

As a Club, we have made the decision that as coaching is a valuable asset and something with which we can give the best back to the players, we would like to cover the cost of the course.  We would, of course, expect that you would be coaching a team in 2018.

If you are interested to attend, please email our Secretary Tracey Alex secretary@forestrangersfc.com.au.

For more information on the courses visit http://sgfa.com.au/2017-sgfa-end-of-year-coaching-courses/.

Thanks Kass!

We would like to show our appreciation to our Canteen Manager, Kassie Paice, who has made the decision to resign from her committee role at Forest Rangers FC.

We have been very fortunate to have Kassie with us on the Committee for the last few years and, in particular, in the canteen every weekend for the last 3 seasons! Her work in the Club has been very much appreciated and we wish Kassie all the best and hope to see her around the park.

Thanks Kassie!

Junior Presentation Day Wrap-up

What fantastic weather we had for our Juniors’ Presentation Day last Sunday 10th September. Thanks to everyone who came along and for their patience. It was a long process with over 500 trophies handed out on the day.

 

We presented our U12B1 Boys (Minor Premiers & Grand Final winners) with their FRFC premiership jackets, SGFA Premiership trophies, and the Tom McQuinn Trophy for the most outstanding junior team in the Club.  Congrats again boys!

 

Congratulations also to the following teams:

The Norm Ward encouragement award went to U10I

Presidents Trophy for the most outstanding junior team in the Club not to win a premiership went to U14C

Secretary’s Trophy for the most improved A or B grade went to U16GB1

Treasurer’s Trophy for the most improved C or D grade went to U15C

Peter Dawson Trophyfor the most improved junior girl’s team went to U14GB

We presented some players with their FRFC 7-years & 10-years of service jerseys which is a fantastic effort so congratulations to those players also.

7 Years & 10 Years of Service Players

The kids had an absolute ball on the jumping castles & slide, and the ice creams and slurpy’s were a big hit with the kids (and dare I say the adults too!).

It was an all round wonderful family day out and a great way to celebrate the end of another season.

A huge thanks to the many helpers (committee and others) in the canteen, organising and setting up the event. A special thanks to Bob Klinker and Steve Jones who slaved away on the BBQ cooking 1000 sausages!  All our helpers did an amazing job in making the day a success and we would be lost without them.

Check out our Flickr site for pics of the day.

See you all in 2018 – Go Rangers!

Food For Thought Before You Vote…

As you are aware, you will need to enrol and vote for representatives of the Peakhurst Ward during the election this Saturday 9 September 2017.

There are 2 loyal supporters of our club who are councillor candidates of the Peakhurst Ward, Rita Kastanias and Kevin Greene.

Rita, owner of Lugarno Deli Cafe, is a long serving sponsor & supporter of our club. Likewise Kevin & his family has always been strongly involved with the club and both have been active members and supporters of various community groups.  They are both worthy of your vote.

On behalf of Forest Rangers FC we wish them both luck in this election.
