What another brilliant Clinic we had this week, the weather was glorious and the playing conditions were excellent.
We would like to thank all the kids who participated in the Football Skills Clinic this week.
A big thanks to our talented and patient coaches Jono Nolan, David Cencigh (aka DC) and Michael Dettman (aka Mick). From all accounts, everyone appeared to enjoy themselves including the coaches!
The feedback from parents was positive and the clinic well received by the kids.
The clinic runs twice a year in April and July. For more info, visit the Holiday Skills Clinic page of our website and lookout for the upcoming clinic scheduled for July this year!
Again, thanks to all involved, especially the KIDS!

Last Saturday 1st April, club presidents and delegates of the St George Football Association (SGFA), together with the SGFA, presented a cheque from proceeds of the 2016 Richo Cup to the St George Hospital Cardiology department.
The donation will be used for the purchase of an ECG machine, a vital piece of equipment used to assist in the management of people suffering from heart attacks and life threatening chest pain.
Thanks again to all the organisers of last years Richo Cup and to the people of our community for their support and donations for this worthy cause – helping to promote health awareness.
Footballers are encouraged to get regular health checks and prevent more tragedies from occurring both on and off the football field.
Thanks also to U6 parents Belinda Tuckerman and Ben Smith who provided the photos for the day!
Don’t forget to book the date for this year’s Richo Cup on Monday 12 June 2017, Queens Birthday holiday!

The fields will be reassessed by council tomorrow to determine their suitability for play.
Finally some positive news about the grounds. GAMES ARE STILL ON with the exception of Field 1 at Carss Park Flats.
Also under further instruction the Welcome BBQ will now go ahead tomorrow afternoon.
The committee hopes to see everyone all throughout the day. If you are here at 10am look out for the cheque presentation with all the club delegates at field 1.
