Don’t stand by, stand up!

Eltham Redbacks FC is right behind the FFV and VicHealth when it comes to delivering this message.

So don’t stand by when you see racism; stand up!

President’s Half Year Update

Ivan Dalla Costa @ 4:42 pm June 24, 2015   Comments Off on President’s Half Year Update

ERFC  (7)

As we move into the second half of the 2015 season, I want to take the opportunity to provide an update on the season to date and some exciting developments.

As always, I want thank all the technical directors, coaches, team managers, committee and volunteers for all their hard work since pre-season commenced in February. Without their dedication and commitment the club would not be able to put 50+ teams on the pitch every week. Whether you are responsible in rolling out a football program or helping in the canteen, every little bit helps in making us the best football club in Melbourne.

Playing numbers continue to be strong with over 850 members ranging from our 3-4 year old Spiderlings to our over 45 men’s teams. We have experienced an increase in player numbers in all areas with the biggest growth in our girls/women program. Well done girls hopefully we will soon have several Matildas!

On the park the Redbacks have been extremely competitive with all teams across all ages having success. Our senior men and women teams continue to power on and are sitting on top of the ladder of their respective leagues. Junior teams have shown great development with exciting football being played at all levels.

A special thanks goes to our sponsors. With their support the club is able to invest into the football program that keeps us ahead of the rest. I strongly encourage you consider buying their products or use their services as a way to say thank-you for their on-going support. Pls refer to our sponsor page for their contact details. (Click here)

Over the coming months we have earmarked a number of social events, including the annual Trivia Night, Senior and Junior Presentations, Call to Arms, Pink Ribbon Night and number of other activities. Your participation and contribution at these events is a great way to mingle with the Committee and get to know club members in a social and fun environment. We will be publishing dates shortly however in the meantime I encourage all members to come along to the Trivia night. Click here to make a booking.

Through the great support of our local state member Vicki Ward we have been able to embark on two major projects that will positively impact the Redbacks in coming years. The first is the redevelopment of our club rooms to cater for 850 members and ability to have multiple change rooms. We have commenced the feasibility study and have produced several concepts. Over the coming months I will be able to share more information which will include the need to raise funds to contribute towards the project. The second project is the redevelopment of the St. Helena secondary college sport precinct which will include a synthetic pitch to be used by the Redbacks. This project has many components occurring over many years, however priority has been given to construct the synthetic pitch in the first phase of the project.

The Redbacks prides itself on in respecting and accommodating players from all different backgrounds and levels of abilities. This has been the fabric of the club and will continue to be one of the guiding principles. Please ensure you apply this principle as you play against other teams and visit other clubs.

Finally, I wish you the very best for the remainder of the season and I look forward in catching up down at the “web” – AKA Eltham North Reserve

Go Redbacks

SL4E women battle for a 3-3 draw

Pinky @ 4:08 pm April 21, 2015   Comments Off on SL4E women battle for a 3-3 draw

Our State League 4 East women’s youth development squad travelled to the Ivory Towers of Melbourne University to play in rain and howling wind. Down 3:1 at half time these talented young women clawed back 2 goals in the second half (the final goal in the last 5 min!!) to pull off a hard fought 3:3 draw. With the exception of captain/coach Olivia Moxon the entire team is eligable to play U16 – a very youthful squad indeed! A wonderful performance from players we hope to see in the 1st team in years to come. Go Redbacks!
