Final Round Newsletter - 20th October 2020

It has been a long and trying season this year, with COVID-19 affecting our year and the lives of most people.

This Sunday (25th October)marks the last of our games this season with our All Age Men Div. 5 team playing their grand final at Blacktown Football Park kicking offat 10:00am.

When you consider that our first game this year was the Premier League kicking offon Saturday 14th March, that makes the season nearly seven and a half months long (not including preseason and end of year presentations!).

I would like to congratulate everyone on getting through the season and thank everyone who has turned up to Minchinbury to support the club, the teams, and the players.

Thanks also to all the coaches, managers and team helpers who have done a great job keeping our players on the field this season. The COVID plans meant a lot more work for us this year but we came through with flying colours.

Finally, I would like to thank the committee for all the hard work that they have put in this year. Their efforts in keeping the club running smoothly during such a difficult time is testimony to their skills and their dedication to our club.

To finish the year, we will still be holding presentations, but they will be quite different to the "normal" presentations that we have had in previous years. This newsletter outlines the arrangements that will be in place to help continue to keep our members COVID safe.

Yours in soccer - Stephen Bradbury - President Minchinbury Soccer Club
