Support those that support you!
It’s sponsors’ week at ERFC this week, and a chance for you to get to know the local businesses that support you when you play the world game at Eltham. Our sponsors are incredibly important for the success of our club, and our ability to deliver quality football programs from our 3-4yo Spiderlings right through to the Eltham Vets League. Obviously it makes sense that if you need a product or service provided by our sponsors that you consider their offers!
Major sponsors in 2014…

A big game on Saturday afternoon
This Saturday, 3 pm kick-off, is our annual Call to Arms fundraiser to raise awareness and some cash for the Cancer Council. It has been a regular feature of the senior men’s calendar for the last four years and is proudly supported by Eltham’s Liberal Party Member Steve Briffa. We are looking to better our fundraising efforts every year so please help us raise some money and catch a great local game of football.
The boys have had a faultless season by winning every match so far. After last week’s win, they have broken a 42 year drought and will be crowned league champions. The aim is now to win the remaining 4 matches and end the season with a perfect record. Since 1955, no team has won all matches in any State League competition. Its time to create some history
The last 4 matches will not be easy as each team will try and beat us. Lets see if they can! Come on down and support the team and a worthy charity.

Eltham Bookshop donated a copy of this book for our most recent Women’s Pink Ribbon fundraiser and we’ve had a good flick through and think it’s absolutely amazing!
We were surprised to find out that the coauthor Bill Murray is actually an Eltham resident! Roy forwarded us this flyer to promote the new book at an upcoming event at the Veneto Club.
This event represents excellent value so we would encourage our members to have a look at the flyer and consider attending.

Eltham Redbacks FC will be providing a School Holiday Programme on Tuesday 8th, Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th of July.
These will be three full days (8.30am – 4pm) designed for fun! The programme will be tailor made to suit different ages and abilities so everybody is welcome to join in. Members of other clubs are also welcome, so it’s a chance for players to get all their friends involved.
The programme has been designed and will be run by Ashley Greaves, the current U14A team coach. Ashley is a fully qualified professional coach (UEFA licence) and has a decade of coaching experience in the UK and Australia with a variety of age groups. He will be assisted by leading coaches from within the club.
The mornings will consist of fun-based training games and drills (more challenging based on age/ability) whilst in the afternoons the kids will get to do what they love the most…play full games of soccer with their friends!
Morning tea and lunch will be provided at no extra cost and there will be a fully qualified first-aid volunteer on hand on all 3 days.
Any 1 day – $65
Any 2 days – $130
All 3 days – $150 (only $50 per day!)
How to book
Click on this link below and follow the instructions.
If you would like any further information please feel free to contact Ashley on 0450761241 or firstname.lastname@example.org

We invited everyone involved with the girls’ side of the club down for a photo one Saturday morning and we took this great pic! This coincides with record female participation at our club. We’ve always been a very strong women’s club, complete with a Women’s Premier League team in the past which collapsed due to facilities problems at that time (2008-09), however we’re heading back that way in a hurry! I’m sure you’ll agree an awesome photo (and so useful for us promoting the women’s game!)
Pink Ribbon Night
Our women have selected the Friday June 20th games where both the SL3 and SL2 women competed against the Darebin Falcons (6.30ko SL3 and 8.30ko SL2). The Falcons is a women only club and no doubt will be keen to support the event as well (as soon as we let them know about it!)
This is the annual fund-raiser which has been strongly supported by Eltham Labor MP Steve Herbert and has raised over $4,500 for breast cancer research in the last three years.
We’d like to have a raffle on the night – so if you know of anyone that can donate something for the raffle, please bring it to the club over the weekend and next week. Last year we had a lot of smaller electrical items like hair dryers and gift cards for beauty treatments and so on which the ladies were rapt to win!

Quite amazing that Marco Bresciano was at our club two weeks ago and of course is now in Brazil getting ready to play Chile!
In a bit of a surprise visit, local Liberal candidate in the upcoming election, Steve Briffa, brought his invited guest Marco Bresciano down to pledge Liberal support for the Nillumbik Soccer Strategy. If you’re not across the strategy, in a nut-shell it details re-developing the existing club facility which can cater adequately for the fourth largest soccer club in Victoria (that’s us! with over 800 members)

Our football programs rely very heavily on our sponsors and in return we want to support our sponsors as much as we can, so we bring you news this time of a huge sale at Watson Holden and Northern Motor Group. If you’re in the market, definitely worth a look over there.
