It is the responsibility of whoever is last to leave to shut the car park gate each afternoon/evening. It has been left open a number of times recently and we believe that it has been done through people simply not knowing, rather than being lazy.
Please let everyone know that if you are the last from Belmont FC to leave, then shut the gate. If others happen to be parked inside the gate and are using the playground, please take the time to ask them to move their car(s) so that you can close up.
We need someone to help out with marking the lines at Marks Oval on Thursday. If you are able to help, please contact Darren Hughes on 0419 435 691.
The volunteer that usually marks the lines for us has hurt his hand and is not able to do it but he has said that he will attend while it is done to advise on how to do it.
While Belmont FC has been enjoying a successful season on many levels, we would like to have even more people join in the fun next year. When choosing a club to represent, remember that Belmont FC have not had one washed out round so far this season as our grounds have help up much better than most and are currently in great shape. We also have lower registration costs compared to many other clubs.
For the older player, please contact the Committee if you have interest in joining our club and joining or forming a Women’s All Age team or an additional Over 35 Men’s team. This season we had interest in these teams but didn’t quite have enough players to get them on the field so we have decided to start the recruitment early in preparation for next season. We will also be happy for additional All Age teams to join us next near during registration.
For the younger players, we are always looking to create more teams. If we don’t get numbers to create an additional team in an age group there is still the opportunity to be added into a team as we have many teams that could do with an extra player or two.
Belmont FC hate seeing players miss the opportunity to take the field at any age group or level and will help out however we can to try to get players on the field.
We have had council out to repair two sections of the irrigation system on Ground 1. Both sections are on the RooBall end and are softer than the rest of the ground due to moisture. Please be careful if you are training near these two areas while the ground dries out.
A set of keys have been found at Marks Oval and are now with the committee. They will be available for collection on Saturday as long as you can describe their appearance.
Our U6/6 All Girls team have ditched their traditional blue and gold socks and are now wearing pink and they look sensational.
Are you free tonight? Why not come down to Marks Oval and support our Belmont FC Over 35’s take on one of our more local competitors, Warners Bay. Kickoff is at 6:30pm.
The local battle will no doubt be fierce, it was the last time these two teams met with 7 goals scored in total.
One of Belmont FC’s Life Members, Clint Starrett, forms part of the enemy for the game with him playing for the dark side. Come along, support Belmont FC and give Clint heaps.
We had a chat to Clint this week about the match. He told us that he thinks, “it will be a bit strange, this is the first time I’ve played at Marks Oval for the opposing team”. Clint also told us that he felt Belmont FC was the toughest team that he has played against this season even though the table does not currently reflect that.
Many years ago, Clint was one of the first players awarded the Belmont Soccer Club (as it was named then) 10 Years Continuous Service award as was Luke Richardson who is also a part of the opposing Warners Bay team this evening. (Picture shown is of Clint receiving the award and Luke in the background looking at his)
If you find that you have received photos of/for players that are not in your team, please hand the photos into the committee on Saturday. Some have been noticed missing from those already handed out so if you find they are in yours, or you are missing some, please let us know.
The team photos are now at the Belmont FC clubhouse and can be collected on Saturday during game times.
We ask that the team Coach or Manager collect the photos on behalf of the whole team and hand them out.
