Gear for Trials Wk 2

Last chance to get gear for trials: Friday March 16, 5.30pm - 7.00pm.
The Uniform Shop will be open for last minute sales and distribution of gear for trials Week 2.

Uniforms are not necessary for trials. Any football shorts/socks are ok, shin pads and football boots are the only compulsory items.

If you requested/emailed Cath for team gear this week, (prior to Friday) it is ready for you. Please remember that gear has been packed for fully registered players (ie seniors that means paid rego + current Sports Club membership.) I can top up kits for you as players reach compliance.

Teams who haven't organised gear for this week, don't forget to get in contact with Cath asap so I can arrange appropriate kits for you.

Trials Info

Updated Friday March 16, at 12 noon

Please see below updated trials information. Please recheck regularly to ensure you know when your team is playing.

Trials Week 2

Trials Week 3

As previously mentioned we won’t be making any time/day changes, it causes too many knock on effects and way too many emails to sort through.

If a team can’t make it or folds (on either side) that game will be cancelled.

The team managers names are in brackets next to the team. If these are incorrect please let me know. If the manager is unknown I’ve just used the age group coordinator, please forward details to all teams/players.

Please let me know if I’ve missed a team or if a team can’t make their allotted time.
