Team Photos - This Weekend!
Our club photographer, Tracy Brown, will be at GW fields this Saturday to take team photos.
Please arrange for your team to arrive before your game and locate Tracy to take your photo.
If you are playing away this Saturday or unable to arrange to attend Geoff Watt prior to your game, Tracy will again return to Alstonville on Saturday 18 June to complete the rest of the teams.
If you are unable to arrange to have the photo taken on either of these dates, you will have to arrange your own photo to be taken and sent in to us so we can organise printing prior to the presentations.
Team photos are also important for our historical records so please make the effort to attend.

Womens Premiers field Youthful Team
Our Womens Premier team is already a young looking team this year but in their clash with Italo Stars on the weekend, with many players out, they brought in three Gr16 girls to help make up the numbers.
All three put in solid performances with Olivia Kerry and Emily Wiltshire holding out the Stars at the back and Mia Casagrande threatening up front many times and coming away with one goal.
The final score was 4-0 to Villa and was a sign of good things to come at Villa with lots of depth in womens and girls football and with our experienced players willing to mentor the young ones.
The photo below shows an attacking play by Villa. Well done girls!

(Next Session: 30 May 2016)
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 (Gr10-12) and 6:30-7:30 (Gr13-16). 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.

2016 Junior Grading Completed
All junior competitive teams (Gr12-16) are now formed and ready to go for the season. Players and coaches have been notified of their teams and training is underway.
A big thank you to all graders who helped over the three weeks of grading and musters! It's often hard to find helpers for this task so early in the season but it's a credit to our valued volunteers to have so many willing to help.
Some junior teams will start games on the weekend of 1-3 April and others on 29-30 April. Check the FFNC draw regularly as it should be ready soon.
We hope all our teams have enjoyable season with a focus on player development and fun!

2016 Girls Stanthorpe Trip
Last Sunday Villa took two girls teams (Gr13/14 and Gr15/16) on a bus trip to Balandean to play some friendly games against the Stanthorpe Football girls. This is becoming a tradition as the Stanthorpe girls traveled down to Alstonville last year.
The girls had a great time on the bus trip which included a Trivia Challenge to be completed over the day. Zoe McInnes was the eventual winner of this comp and took home a new Nike soccer ball!
We were welcomed with great hospitality at Balandean with a free lunch and friendly club members and players. After a few short speeches to welcome us the games got under way.
The teams proved to be evenly matched throughout the day. Each team played two games with the Gr13/14 team (coached by Pommy Dave) ending up with two draws. The Gr15/16 team (coached by Todd McInnes) ended up with one win and one loss.
Before departing at the end of the day, Stanthorpe Football had a brief presentation to thank us for visiting and to hand over some samples from the local wineries! It was a great day with the games being played in a great spirit and we met lots a great people. Thank you Stanthorpe Football!
We arrived home about 8:30pm and all agreed it was a wonderful day. Hopefully this can become a yearly tradition with our friends at Stanthorpe Football.
