Junior Presentation 2013

Most teams have now completed their 2013 season culminating in the presentation day held last Sunday at Geoff Watt fields.

It was a great turnout and a great day for it as players were presented with their trophies and special awards given out. And the fundraising BBQ for Georgia Keen's UK tour with the Australian School Girls team was a big success.

It takes a lot of committed people to run such a great club as Villa FC and we are lucky to have such great players, coaches, parents and helpers. Thank you to all for a great and successful 2013 season!

Below is the list of the special award winners for 2013:

Mens Prems Finish 2013 on a High!

Our Mens Premier team have recovered from the heartache of missing out on a spot in this year’s semis by defeating Goonellabah in their last game this season. It was no easy feat though – Villa taking the win by just one goal.

Our Mens Reserves team did well also this year finishing second on the ladder. They start their finals bid this Friday at home to Byron at 7:30PM on CP1. Well done to both teams for a great 2013 season!


Gr13 Angels - Team of the Week

Our Gr13 girls team has won the NNSWF Team of the Week competition. This team has now gone two seasons undefeated and plays in a semi final this Friday night. Scoring over 100 goals this season and winning every game the girls ended the regular season as pointscore champions once again. However winning is not everything as you can read below.

2013 Trivia Night a Big Success!

We hope all that attended our Villa trivia night enjoyed themselves. Thank you to all that were there and to those that donated prizes, some $6000 worth. And a big thank you to all the ladies that worked together, making it a huge success.

With close score lines between a number of tables and many draws done there was one name that seemed to be repeated throughout the night. And the winner is........... Wendy Priddle.

Georgia in Cambodia

Villa FC player Georgia Keen traveled to Cambodia in July with CUFA, an organisation that helps lift communities out of poverty.

CUFA uses football as a vehicle for the education and self improvement of children in poverty and so Georgia was there to support this initiative. Well done to Georgia and her family on embarking on such a worthwhile trip. See the video below to see some of the things Georgia got up to on the trip and visit www.cufa.com.au to learn more about CUFA.


2013 Carnival - A Big Day!

Our annual Junior Carnival was held last Sunday and it was our biggest for many years. With nearly 100 teams registered every field had to be utilised.

It was a fantastic team effort from the club with everyone working together to ensure that this years carnival was a huge success. We had a lot of positive feedback during and after the day that all had a great time. Well done and a big thank you to all volunteers and teams who helped put together such a wonderful day for all.



Gr6 Barracudas - In the Mud!

Last week the Gr6 Barracudas traveled to Skennars Head fields for their fixture. It was yet another wet day and the kids embraced the fact that they were allowed to get dirty and run around in the rain!

The Barracudas are Baxter, Jordan, Haylen, Lewis, Taj and Ari - coached by Angie West.

Gr15 Allstars - First use of CP2 Shelters!

In the holidays the Gr15 Girls Allstars had a practice match and social event at CP. The spectators made good use of the new shelters - which is believed to be the first use of the shelters.


New CP2 Shelters - Thank You!

We have recently built and installed new shelters on CP2. The shelters were kindly donated by Alstonville Plumbing & Gasfitting (ph 6628 5626).

The weather turned out to be perfect for the week leading up and on Saturday for the working bee when the concrete was poured. A huge thank you to all those who could help, and particularly to the following:

- Paul Jarrett, our club president (who designed and planned everything)
- Matt Priddle (who worked tirelessly all week)
- Garry Kunz (who helped with the grass excavating)
- Dave Jobson (who donated use of a digger and helped with concreting & roofing).
- and Holcim Concrete for donating the concrete (ph 13 11 88)



Another Wash Out!


Last weekend was yet another wet one with most games postponed or cancelled. At least our small sided teams played at home and the weather held off for the morning. However spare a thought for some teams who have only played 4 games so far this season.

Field closures can get complicated with a lot of aspects to consider, so even though a Saturday morning might be sunny the fields might still be too wet to play on or bad weather might be forecast or there might be some other consideration.

Villa FC (and all clubs) have to look after the fields that we lease. We try our best to keep everyone up to date with field closures and we have a wet weather procedure that we ask teams to follow (see here.).

Let's hope the second half of the season sees more games played.
