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

We are currently in need of more club volunteers in various areas. Some of may have already been handed on of these feedback forms. If not you should soon receive one.
Please fill out the form and hand in to the canteen if you can spare a small amount of time each month to help with the running of the club or contact a committee member.
We are particularly looking for some regular canteen helpers and also parents of small sided teams to help with our Junior Carnival. Club volunteers find it a very rewarding and fun experience not to mention providing such a great community service, so why not get involved now!

2013 Phone Books - Finished!
A huge thank you to all those who helped us deliver phone books last weekend and to John Thomson from AnJon Electrical who allowed us to store the books at his premises. And also to Jason Hughes who transported the books there.
It was a slow start on Saturday but on Sunday we had a lot of helpers who got the bulk of the deliveries finished. Others also finished off deliveries to businesses during the week.
This was a great combined effort to raise funds towards our new shelters (which will come in handy if this weather continues). So now we are finished for 2013 and we don't need any more help with this. Thanks again to everyone who could help!

Second Hand Boots - Going OS?
We still have many pairs of second hand boots for sale on consignment. But if they don't sell by 15 June, we are going to send them all overseas so they can be used by kids who don't have any boots.
So if anyone who has boots for sale and wants them back please collect them from the canteen before 15th June.

Womens Prems - Awesome CM Shield WIN
Last night our Womens Premier team played in the final of the pre-season Callan McMillan Memorial Shield competition against Bangalow.
As always the Bangalow team came out firing from the start and slotted an early goal to go 1-0 up. Bangalow were pressing hard and were attacking in Villa's half for large portions of the game. Villa had to play catch up with each goal that Bangalow scored but managed to draw even each time.
With a few minutes to go in regular time, and with Villa 3-2 down, Hannah Sheehan took a penalty from way out. It was a perfect long range shot which sailed over the head of the Bangalow keeper and into the back of the net to put the game into extra time.
Both teams were now getting tired and Villa began to have the better of the attacking opportunities. Towards the end of the first period of extra time Georgia Keen made a burst from the midfield and beat three players before sliding the ball past an attacking keeper to put Villa 4-3 up.
This remained the score at the end of extra time to give Villa a fourth successive shield for the team coached by Rob Sheehan and managed by Andrew Iliffe. Well done to all the girls for a fantastic match!
