Congratulations to those Footscray teams and players for a great year, and to those who managed to reach finals, preliminary finals and grand finals.  We wish you all well in getting the best results possible.  

A big thank you for the many volunteers from junior parents who have filled many places in our finals canteen rosters.   It is very heart warming to have so many people willing to help out making each shift light work for all.  

Unfortunately Men’s Premier League coach Travis Brooks is moving on.  The Men’s PL and Reserves team’s have been very fortunate to have a coach of the caliber of Travis Brooks for the past 3 years.  While we wish he could have stayed on, we wish him all the very best in whatever he takes on in his future and thank him and his family.   He will be credited with development of a group of young people into a viable PL team. The search is now on for a suitable replacement. 

We have some great events coming up including the Mega Draw and Senior Presentation Night at our Platinum sponsor Yarraville Club on October 25.  It was pleasing to see the Junior Presentations well attended and congratulations to all the juniors who received awards.

Summer hockey teams are being formed so please contact your director if you would like to participate in Summer. We are holding a Come ‘n Try for adults who may be interested in taking up the sport, in particular junior parents to learn the game too on Wednesday 15th October. Exciting stuff and something for everyone.   See u at the finals…RJ.
