Season Resumes this Saturday

Dear Majura Football Family, Well, what a great first half of the season. The sun was shining, the sausages sizzled, the smell of curries wafted, the games were not played in mud, the cheers from the sidelines were full of encouragement, excitement and sometimes disappointment - this is Majura FC.   I think it's very important to say well done to all the Age Group Coordinators, Coaches, Managers, Referees, weekend helpers, parents/carers, canteen helpers and of course my Committee team (if I have left anyone out you know who you are). This is your Club and Majura FC is well known in Canberra for its wonderful spirit and it has certainly shone through. Congratulations to the Majura teams and referees that participated in the Kanga Cup. It was a great week with many successes and personal achievements. And now it's back to the second half of the season starting this Saturday 22 July. I look forward to seeing you all. I'm at the fields every Saturday either doing set up, helping at the BBQ or enjoying one of Rhonda's famous curries, so if you want to talk about anything at the club then come and say hello. Peter Docherty President Majura FC Reminder about Parking, Dogs and Golf Practice! Just a reminder that parking inspectors are regular visitors at the Dickson
