We have closed the grounds this weekends to all games. The games have been postponed and will now be played next weekend, Fri 12 and Sat 13th August.
Photos will now be held on either Thursday evening or Saturday (13th Aug).
The grounds have been inspected today and are holding a lot of water. The pitches aren’t suitable for training so all grounds are CLOSED and training is OFF tonight.
We will update tomorrow and saturday for the weekends games.
This season the Kingfishers will be hosting Preliminary finals in the O35, All Age Mens and Women and Junior Competitions.
The games will be over the weekend of Fri 26th August – Sun 28th August.
We expect this to be a huge weekend for the club and a major fundraiser through the canteen.
To make the weekend run smooth we are looking for volunteers from across the club (players, parents, family, etc) to get involved and volunteer their time.
The club is requesting all senior teams (All Age, O35 and ZPL) to fill a session below to assist, given senior teams have only minimal duties throughout the season and are not required to man the canteen. We will require 5 people at all times to assist on canteen (2), duty officer (2) and extra for Bbq assistance or duty officer depending on what is required.
We wil also welcome any volunteers from junior teams. The more hands we have the easier the weekend will be.
Time slots as follows:
– Friday 445pm – 745pm including ground setup (Sat O35 C’s)
– Friday 745pm – 1045pm including ground pull down (Sat O35 A’s)
– Saturday 745am – 1100am including ground set up
– Saturday 1100am – 300pm
– Saturday 300pm – 615pm including ground pull down
– Sunday 745am – 1100am including ground setup
– Sunday 1100am – 230pm including ground pull down.
It will be first in best dressed to fill the sessions so please advise and we can allocate a session
Once again we will be hosing Northern NSW Footballs AIA Vitality Mini Roos for Girls Clinics.
These clinics were a huge success at the club last season and are great for girls wanting to try the sport as well as for existing players wanting to keep playing for a bit longer after the season finishes.
If you know any girls who may want to try the sport, share this post or let them know.
The program runs for 1 hour a week for 10 weeks during school term 4. Cost is $120 and includes;
– 10 week AIA Vitality MiniRoos Kick-Off for Girls program
– FFA Sport Accident Insurance
– AIA Vitality MiniRoos Kick-Off participant pack (Back pack, Ball, Drink Bottle, player cards, poster)
For an additional $20 you can purchase a MiniRoos for Girls Jersey.
Registrations are open here – http://northernnswfootball.com.au/miniroosforgirls/
Due to the rain over the last few days, the fields are very wet and the grounds have been closed to ensure they recover for the weekends games.
All training tonight has been cancelled.
One of our Zone League Players, Bon Scevak will be shaving his trademark dreads off at Cardiff Bowling Club on August the 6th at 6:30pm.
Bon and a Cardiff City Tigers player will be shaving their heads to support the Trans Tasman Radiation Oncology Group.
This is a great cause and it would be great to see a large contingent of Kingfishers there to support the players involved.
There will be raffles and auctions on the night and you can donate by depositing funds into the bank account provided in the flier.

The Club’s aim in the next 5 years is to get into a much stronger financial position to be able to improve the club and its facilities. Many of the larger projects around the club will be funded by grants (such as the recent drainage project completed on Lance Yorke Oval last year) however the club is also required to contribute a monetary amount. Future projects include irrigating the playing fields and re-turfing with rye grass.
There will be only be a small number of fundraising events this year including the trivia night and some major raffles and we would ask everyone to support these events as best they can.
To RSVP or ask any questions, please feel free to contact Margaret West (4943 8689), Ryan Ansell (0400 394 170 ) or Leonard Allen (0421 278 619) for further information.
