The club has organised a gala day with Templestowe United on Sunday 13th April.
This is an important part of the pre-season and getting ready for the season. Ensure you arrive a min of 30 minutes before your allocated kick-off time
You will see below that the President, Ivan Dalla Costa, has organised some internal matches if Tempy were unable to provide a competing team.
U12/U14 girls – ongoing discussion whether we can get a match on Saturday
U15 Boys – we are waiting for another club to confirm
Should be a great day for football! Especially if this lovely weather holds up.

If you aren’t already aware, Eltham Redbacks FC has its own internally administer over 45s league! Such is the popularity locally in that age group. The sub-committee for that league has a great program and they don’t just run a really fun league, they also do things like the World Cup tourney each year to raise home for Eltham Retirement Village, which has been extremely popular and raised some great funds over the last couple of years.
In 2014 we’ve started playing friendlies in preparation for the over 45s league, and teams are forming up nicely.
Ideally we still need a good handful of over 45s players – so if you’ve been thinking about having a kick this year there has never been a better time to pull on the boots!
If you want to join the group, shoot an email to Phil and we’ll give you up to date info: email@example.com

Suddenly we have some silverware to add to the trophy cabinet courtesy of our U8 Kangaroos, coached by Frank Caruso!
Yesterday morning they beat Fawkner in a penalty shoot out to win the semi-final of the Fawkner Cup. The game went to 3-3 after extra time. Our boys showed amazing skills and persistence.
Today we played the Grand Final against the Thomastown Raiders. We went down 4-0. Thomastown played very well to win.
Our boys were presented with runners-up medallions and a big silver cup after the game. Congratulations to Frank and the team as well as the great support network around the group.

The pre-season training schedule has been updated. Please make sure you check your training times for your teams in case there has been a change for your group.
Click here for the schedule.
This is the complete schedule, with ground map. Your group will be allocated to either the top ground, main pitch (synthetic) or Adventure Playground (down the road). Further, there are colour coded areas on each of these grounds as well, where your group will be training (but you probably will just see them there!)
Enjoy our amazing map making skills and Vice-President Dave’s scheduling prowess.

Our State League 2 NW and State League 3 N women’s teams are shaping up very nicely, already with a solid pre-season under their belts and some friendlies played and we’re still 7 weeks out from the start of the season! We are still on the hunt for a goal-keeper for the SL3 team, if anyone knows of a girl is looking for a gig as a keeper they would be greatly welcomed by our SL3 group.
The first competitive game for the women’s group is the State Knock-out Cup Round 1 on April 6th. The normal winter season starts April 27th – a later start this year due to late Easter.
We find out March 14th who we’re playing in the cup.

Apologies for the late training schedule, we are trying to manage our limited resources since we are not the primary club tennant until April 1st (Technically! We should get full access a week or so earlier than that).
A late addition to the training schedule for this Saturday:
U12 boys at 2pm
U13 boys and U14 at 3pm
U15 and U16 boys at 4pm
We hope you can all make it! Max. temp of 27’C with a late shower, should be much better for football than the last few weekends.
