Note from the President
Firstly, I just wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year for 2017. Planning for the 2017 season is already underway with trials for the Development Squads now completed and the AGM held. We are currently finalising the full list of committee names and duties so will be sending further details on this in the New Year. In the meantime we hope to have registrations open on or very close to January 3rd for the new season so don’t forget to get online and secure your place. We are hoping to have a minimum change in playing rates for 2017 as we are conscious of the investment that you all make. If you have any queries or concerns please don’t forget to let us know.
For your information the Club made the decision recently to make a donation to West Pymble Football Club to assist them with the development of their ground at Norman Griffiths to an artificial surface. The committee felt we should be providing support for initiatives of this type which can only benefit all players in the NSFA region. The plus side of this is that West Pymble has agreed that for five (5) years its teams will not sing their victory song should they by chance have a victory over a Lane Cove team! The penalty for any failure on this rule is severe!
For 2017 we have once again entered the FFA Cup and hope to get a little bit further than we managed in 2016!
We are continually seeking help with coaching from within our ranks, with the Women’s All Age teams in particular looking for help in 2017. If you can assist please let us know. The Club is happy to support our players get the necessary coaching licences at our cost.
Here’s to another fantastic season for the Blue and Gold in 2017!
Francis Child – LCFC President
