I hope this message finds you safe and well.
Capital Football have made the decision to end all 2021 winter competitions. While no one in the football community wanted the season to end this way, given the extended lockdown and the ACT sportsground availability, this was the most practical decision by Capital Football.
I certainly missed being on the grounds for the last day of the season. Handing out trophies and sharing stories about the season while enjoying one last curry. Unfortunately this will have to wait for another year. In moving forward, your committee will discuss the logistics for kit and uniform returns, trophy collection and the like. Of course this will be pending ACT restrictions. There is a l lot to sort out so please look for future messages from the club.
While we digest the news about 2021 I will give you something to look forward to. Your committee is busy planning the summer football program and the 2022 season. We will launch our summer football program with a selection of options including social soccer and our performance academy. We will apply for the 2022 Capital Premier League Boys competition and anticipate holding trials in October – November. We will sit down with our Senior League teams and discuss plans for next season and again consider Majura FC participation in the 2022 FFA Cup. There is plenty to do in the weeks ahead.
Before we get to next season I need to thank some people for the season past. I want to thank all of the players for their commitment and hard work during the season. I hope you enjoyed your season and enhanced your love of the game.
Thank you coaches and managers, you are an integral part of making this all work and I know you volunteer a lot of your time. Please keep you eye out for the winner of our coach of the year award.
Thank you referees and game leaders for providing a safe and fun environment for our players. To our superheroes and sidekicks, I know the Pee Wees will be disappointed with this ending but I hope to see you all back next year, thank you for all you do.
To our club captains Miles and Charlotte, thanks for being there on Saturdays. It was great to see your smiling faces and thanks for helping out with whatever was needed.
Finally, I want to thank our Technical Director Angelo Zaris who will be leaving Majura FC this month to follow his coaching ambitions. Angelo has been instrumental in providing technical direction over the past 2 seasons. His efforts have propelled the club ahead in terms of our football program. He has done so while recognising and maintaining the community culture that is vital to our identity. Thank you Angelo, we will miss you and we wish you the best of luck.
President, Majura FC
