END OF YEAR REPORT FROM THE PRESIDENT

To all of the players, coaches, volunteers but especially the parents, a massive thank you for all of your efforts and commitment for the season of 2015. It was a long hard season but it was well worth the effort, the club won awards and accolades from outside of football as well as inside football.

The club now has a new board who have been in situ since the AGM, held at the stadium on the 14/10/15. All board members have their portfolios of responsibilities and are hard at work preparing for the new season in 2016. MCFC have managed to keep the services of Doug Hesketh as senior head coach and some of his appointments to his coaching team already have the teams in Perth talking. Doug will add to this team in the near future, and pre-season training has already begun. To date 99% of last year’s state league winning side have returned to the club for the 2016 season and new players of quality are turning up for pre-season training, so we can give the 2016 season a good go.

The officers elected have the following roles;
Tony Dyson President
Paula Johnstone Vice President/senior Saturday football
Nigel Mann Vice President/ junior football
Louise Ackland Treasurer
Julia Whitall Secretary
Marc Manning Junior coordinator/IT
Colin Chandler Groundsman/ shire coordinator
Wesley Dickinson Senior Sunday football
Damion Johnstone Player/board liaison officer
Richard Taylor Board Member

The club has been awarded a provisional junior NPL license by Football West and the junior committee are working hard appointing coaches so we can hit the new season at running speed and give the established NPL clubs in the junior NPL competition a run for their money.

Many thanks goes to Marc Manning and his team of junior parents that sit on the junior committee and spend hours and hours of their free time ensuring that all is going well with our junior set up. As well as the juniors this team of volunteers also organise our summer 5s competition that is growing year by year and have teams coming from miles around to participate, getting the MCFC name out there.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank our current sponsors, who without their commitment to the club we would not be able to function in the manner in which we do. I would like for this area of our club to grow significantly to enable the football club to do so much more. If you know anybody that would like to work with us promoting their business throughout Perth and beyond then please feel free to give them my contact details which is displayed on this website.

I intend, as the President of your club to give you a report of the club every quarter in the off season with the goings on at the club and during the football season a report on a monthly basis, I think it is vital that members are kept in the loop as to what is happening at ‘their’ club. If people have any ideas/criticism then as the President I want to know about it so I can do something to put things right. This is your club so, USE it.

Finally I would like to wish all of our players, volunteers, coaches and parents a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year and hoping for a fantastic 2016 season.
Tony Dyson
President
