Parents and Players,
Thank you for a great season this year and congratulations to those teams that made it into the final rounds. It is always a pleasure watching the club grow and to see new or familiar faces throughout the soccer season.
Although, we wish we were writing to you all to end the season on a positive note, this is not the case.
Belmont FC has been a great community organisation for over 50 years, bringing communities together and growing as a club. It is quite disappointing to think that 2017 could potentially be the last season for Belmont FC.
As everyone is aware, we sent various emails in regards to the AGM meeting that commenced on Monday the 18th of September 2017. This meeting required ALL coaches, managers and parents of the club to attend. The purpose of the AGM is to reflect on the great year we have had and to discuss the future of the club. This year, as you are all aware. Richard Watkins and Julie Hicks, have stepped down from their duties to pass on the responsibilities to other members of the community. They have worked tirelessly for 5 years to keep the club going and growing, but unfortunately must move on eventually.
This required other members of the community to step in and volunteer for the positions available.
EVERY YEAR we struggle to gain volunteers, although it does benefit your children, it is quite sad to see no one showing a helping hand. We do appreciate those that do step forward, you know who you are and we thank you.
For the 2018 season we have no PRESIDENT, OR VICE PRESIDENT. These are vital positions to fill, otherwise you will have to find another club for next year. There are all different roles that are needed to be filled.
We are extremely disappointed in the insignificant numbers of participants at this year’s AGM.
So we are calling out for everyone to go to our special meeting that’s been called for the
9th OCTOBER AT 6.30PM AT BELMONT FC CLUB HOUSE.
Thank you for the 2017 season.
Belmont FC Committee
