After an enforced break due to COVID-19 restrictions, Macleod JFC is now back in action, and looking forward to the start of the YJFL season on Sunday July 12th!
With football currently on hold for 2020, we wanted to share a great email that was sent by our Under 13 coach to his playing group. In these challenging times, it’s important to adapt, as it’s great to see an example of this in action. Here’s what Nick shared with his team:
Thanks to all those who attended our 2019 Annual General Meeting on Wednesday October 23rd. It was pleasing to see such a strong turnout from people keen to hear understand more about the running of the club, and eager to help out in 2020.
Another terrific season for our under 12 side, resulting in a narrow Grand Final loss. Football isn’t all about winning and losing, and the team learned a lot throughout the year, and welcomed a few new players. Thanks to coach Nick Vass for providing the following report.
Our boys played 13 unbelievable games in the lead up to the Round 14 Lightning Premiership at Bulleen Park only dropping one game for the entire season. What an unbelievable effort from a super team that gelled from the opening training session this season. The team also welcomed 3 new players into the fold this season & those players instantly felt a part of this modest team.
