Hello Majura Football Family,
It's been a busy few weeks at Majura FC. To start I would like to thank everyone who came to the AGM and who put their hand up to volunteer and help make our club the best in town. We welcomed new people and had some people move into new roles within our committee. To all committee members and age group coordinators, thank you and I look forward to working with you this season. If you are thinking about volunteering it's not too late, we still have a number of roles to fill including the Equipment Officer as David Horner has stepped into the Vice President role.
I am starting out in my first season as President of Majura FC. I want to acknowledge the hard work Peter Docherty put in as President for the past three seasons. Peter was committed to the continuous improvement of our club and he worked diligently week in and week out to ensure that players, family members and friends had a good experience at Majura FC. Thank you, Peter, you left some big shoes to fill.
I also want to thank Rainer Reuss for his work as Vice President for the past

To the Majura Football Community,
It is with deep regret I announce the season comes to an end this Saturday. It means no more cheering on the teams from the side lines, no more encouragement from the coaches, no more of the beautiful game. I hope that everyone has some great memories from the season to last them until 2019.
As with every year, I want to send out a heartfelt thank you to all our club volunteers which include but not limited to the spectacular Majura Committee, the wonderful Age Group Coordinators, the enthusiastic team Coaches, the super team Managers and to all those other wonderful volunteers (you know who you are), that just give up some of their time on Saturdays to helping out around the club. I want to call out the club Game Leaders and Referees who did a marvellous job this year. I want to thank all the parents, carers and friends who braved the cold winter days to bring the players to the games and cheer them on from the sidelines.
I want to say thank you to the Parkins. Rhonda Parkin who runs the best canteen out of all the ACT football clubs and Bob
