Alstonville and District Football Club (Villa FC) has been providing a fun football experience for the people of the Alstonville Plateau since 1972.

During our proud history we have focused on being an inclusive club promoting positive behaviours and participation in team sport.

The club provides a pathway for talented players with strong teams in both the men's and women's premier divisions and in the junior competitions.

Our sense of community and love for the game makes this a great club to be involved with. New players and volunteers are always welcome. Please click on the 'Contact Us' menu item above for all inquiries.

Keeper Sessions
(Cancelled Today (20/03), Next Session: Mon 27th March 2017)

This year we are continuing our special training sessions for keepers who are extra keen to improve. Matt Baker has generously offered to run these sessions once again.

The sessions will now be run WEEKLY at CP 5:30-6:30PM. If Crawford Park is closed due to wet weather then the sessions will be cancelled for that week. The keeper sessions are open to junior players from Gr10-16. There is no charge for these sessions. Details for the sessions are as follows:

Goal Keeper Sessions Details

These are for those aspiring to be goal keepers or for experienced goal keepers wanting to refine their skills. Matt Baker, who will be running these sessions, is a Premier level keeper. Last year we had lots of reports of improved performance as a result of coming to these sessions. Players will greatly benefit from this training so please come along.


We have had a very successful sign-on this year and most teams are now FULL, however we are wanting more players in particular for Gr10 MiniRoos (turning 10 this year) and Gr13 Mixed (turning 13 this year).

If you are interested please contact Matt Wiltshire on 0402 013 364 or visit the registration page of this website for how to register.

Junior Grading Now Complete (updated 18 Mar 2017)

We have now completed junior grading for all Gr12-16 teams. So please DON'T come back this Sunday or Monday.

Thanks so much to all the volunteers who gave up their time to help with grading. It can sometimes be a thankless job!


Some players will no doubt be placed into a different team to last year, or not in the team they were expecting.

This happens every year and we ask that parents help their children realise they will still have a great time playing football regardless of what team they are in. We find it only takes a few weeks for players to adjust to a new team and make new friends, which can only be a positive!

We pride ourselves in trying to have an objective grading process that gives every player equal opportunity each year.

But please also note that the teams selected by one person, won't necessarily be the same teams selected by another person. There is no such thing as a perfect grading.

So we thank you for your patience and understanding.

Working Bee - HELPERS NEEDED - Sat 18 Feb

We need to get ready for season 2017 and prepare our facilities by having a clean up and doing some painting.

Our annual working bee will be on Saturday 18th Feb. We will be meeting at CP from 7am onwards. But if you can spare an hour or two later in the day that would be great also.

The more helpers we have, the less work everyone has to do. So please come along and support our wonderful club!

Gr10/11 - Mon - 4:30 to 5:15PM at GW - (starting 6 Mar - then each week until teams formed)

Supervised activities will be provided for approximately three quarters of an hour in no particular groupings until such time as teams can be formed and coaches announced.

Players should try to attend all muster days so they are there when teams are announced. Team training will then commence on a day and time that suits the coach.

Training will begin on the above dates/locations for teams not requiring grading.

Senior Presentation Night

The 2016 Senior Presentation evening will be held at the Plateau Bowls and Sports Club on Saturday 15th October, from 6:30pm. Tickets are $35 each with a very original theme of red & black cocktail.

Tickets are on sale at one of our major sponsors, the Alstonville Plateau Bowls & Sports Club.

Please advise any dietary requirements to the Club when purchasing tickets.

We hope to see you there!

End of Season Info for 2016!

This weekend is the last games for MiniRoos (Gr6-11). We hope all the players have really enjoyed the season and we look forward to seeing you all again next year!


It would be great if all teams are there to receive their trophies. At the presentation each team will be asked to come forward and the coach will be given a box of trophies. Teams are then asked to go back and sit down until all teams have come forward.

Then, at the end of the presentation, coaches can present the trophies to their players - or they may choose to present then later if the team is organising a breakup event.

There will also be a sausage sizzle for sale at GW from 11:30-12:30 to raise funds towards the Gr16 Girls trip to Tasmania.

Gr12-16 teams have now finished their regular season, with some teams going through to finals. Again we hope players have had a fun season of football for 2016.


Coaches - please make sure all your players attend this important end of season event to receive their trophies and acknowledge achievements during the season.

Thanks you.

What is Winning?

(By Steve Watson, youth coach)

Maybe it's time to redefine "winning".

- Winning to me is to have everyone still playing at U12 that started at U6.
- Winning is giving the children a passion for the game they can enjoy for life.
- Winning is challenging every player to achieve realistic goals based on the child's individual abilities.
- Winning is always being a positive role model.

Think of the difference the child sees in coaches who want their kids to have fun versus those coaches screaming at the players, the ref and each other across the field.

Soccer can be enjoyed at all ages. Let's not drive the next Mia Hamm or David Beckham from soccer at U7 because of our misguided concept of winning.

Also see a great article about "WINNING vs DEVELOPMENT" here and a very interesting survey about what kids themselves value in sport.

Gr16 Girls Team off to Tasmania!

Our Gr16 Girls team is finishing the season by traveling to Launceston to play in a junior tournament from 23-25 Sept, where they will be competing with other girls teams from around Tasmania and beyond.

The girls have worked hard all season with fundraising events for the trip. They will be holding a final sausage sizzler at the junior presentations on 18 Sept from 11:30-12:30. Come on down for a good feed and support the girls.

We wish the Gr16 girls team all the best for their trip!

2016 Carnival - A Great Day!

With possible rain predicted it was decided on Saturday afternoon to go ahead with our 2016 Junior Carnival, held on Sunday 7 Aug.

It ended up being a great day weather wise and even better for around 1100 players and 130 teams who enjoyed an action packed day of football and fun. The carnival is all about the players and seeing smiles on their faces, and by all accounts this was achieved.

This year we had many teams from outside our zone including: Victoria Point, Robina, Burleigh Heads, Tweed Heads, Kingscliff, Murwillumbah & Maclean. Thanks to these teams for traveling all that way, we hope you enjoyed the day!

A huge thanks goes to all our wonderful volunteers who started the day very early and never stopped all day. And also to all those who helped behind the scenes putting in many hours to prepare for this big day.

And without all the teams who participated it wouldn't have been such a great day, thank you!

We would also like to thank our valued 2016 Carnival Sponsors:

- Clarence Property
- Alstonville Plaza
- LaFaro Accountants
