Finals Football – Northcote Park Seniors & Reserves

Hi All,

Week 2 of the finals has both the Northcote Park Seniors and Reserves playing in the second semi final.  Unfortunately the under 19s bowed out last week but with most of the team bottom aged they will be back bigger and better for a big tilt at the flag next year.  They say a week is a long time in footy, I’m hoping 3 weeks seems an eternity for Macleod as 3 weeks ago they defeated Northcote Park by 14 goals.  It will be different on Saturday though with 8 changes to that team including the inclusions of the 4 Collingwood VFL players, Ash Close, Jackson Starcevich, Jordan Collopy and Marty Hore.  

It would be great to see the junior club supporting the seniors of which most played their football with us as juniors.  Game kicks off at 2:10 up at Cramer St opposite the market, the reserves kick off at 11:55 are also very strong with 13 of the players having played senior football this year.  For those of you that haven’t seen the seniors play,  its very, very good football and well worth the trip.

Go Cougars

Planning for 2018

Many of our current Committee Members have indicated that they plan to stay on for the 2018 season, but we will need some more new people to get involved as well.

Maurice Petrilli is stepping down as Treasurer after three years so we will need someone new to fill this role. Maurice has been a great asset to the Club in keeping our finances in a strong position, enabling us to set aside funds for things of benefit to the players, such as the bags that were provided this year. Big Thank you to Maurice for all his work over the past three years.

The Treasurer role mainly involves preparation and monitoring of the budget, paying invoices, and preparing financial reports for Committee meetings and for the AGM. It is not a difficult role for someone with a finance background and a few hours each week to spare.

If you think you might be interested in becoming Treasurer or taking on another role at our Club please chat to me at Presentation Day or otherwise let me know.

The new Committee will be elected at the AGM on Wednesday 18 October; it would be great to see a big turnout there to support the Club.

Grand Final Results

U12 Silver Grand Final

A valiant effort from our Under 12 Silver team was not enough to overcome the strong Keon Park side, with Northcote going down 10.7.67 to 3.3.21.

A terrific team effort from the boys and girls to make it to the grand final, and a great experience to learn from.

The team and supporters unwound with pizza and a parents v kids game back at McDonell Park, with a good time had by all and no serious injuries to report.

     

 

Presentation Day

Presentation Day is on Sunday 27 August.

We hope to see you all at Presentation Day on Sunday 27 August.

Sausages will be on offer (gold coin donation) with a few families from each team bringing along a plate of food to share – please contact your Team Manager if you can help.

If bringing a salad or dessert please also supply a list of ingredients.

Finals News & Results

Apart from an exciting win for U12 Silver, the Preliminary Final results unfortunately didn’t go our way. It was a great effort by our U11 Coaches, Team Managers, other volunteers and especially the players to have both teams contesting Preliminary Finals. The boys should be very proud of what they’ve achieved in making it to the second week of their first finals campaign. U14s have moved up a division from last year and shouldn’t be too disappointed to lose to a powerful side, and they wouldn’t have made it as far as they have without strong support from our U13s. U14 Girls have accomplished a lot in their first season and should be really pleased with how far they’ve come as a team this year and the improvements that all players have made.

A big thank you to the U12 Girls who have helped the U12 Silver team make it to the last match of the season.

This is our only team playing in a Grand Final this year, so it would be great to see as many supporters as possible make the trip out to Mernda to cheer the boys and girls on.

Semi Finals Results

There were some nerve-wracking moments for the supporters of our semi-final teams last Sunday, with two matches being drawn at full time and needing extra time to get a result. U14 girls lost to Montmorency by 3 points in extra time but finished in the top 2 so have the double chance. U14 boys had a good win over Wallan, with help from a number of U13s. U12 Silver held on for a close win against Lalor, and U11 Gold get to use their double chance after a narrow loss to Mill Park. Last but not least U11 Blue had a thrilling win over Hurstbridge in extra time.

 Under-11 Green Mill Park 5.6-36 def Northcote Gold 4.7-31
 Under-11 Red Northcote Blue 4.5-29 def Hurstbridge 3.3-21
 Under-12 Silver Northcote Gold 6.6-42 def Lalor 5.2-32
 Under-14 Red Northcote 9.11-65 def Wallan 3.2-20
 Under-14 Girls Blue Montmorency 2.6-18 def Northcote 2.3-15

We now have five teams participating in Preliminary Finals this coming weekend, so please get along to support them if you can. Under 11s are both playing at C.T. Barling Park in Reservoir, which is not so far to travel to watch some footy, so why not make a day of cheering on our teams as they try to win their way through to the Grand Final.

50 Games (and finals)

Congratulations to Paddy Sullivan (Under 11 Blue), Lewis Manterfield and Hayden Kanjou (Under 11 Gold),

and Alistair Thondan & Emanoil Nedelkos (Under 12 Silver) who are playing their 50th games this weekend.

Home and Away Season Roundup

Well done to all teams on finishing the 2017 home and away season.

Our Under 9 and Under 10 Coaches and Team Managers can now enjoy a well-earned sleep-in on Sunday mornings after a season of early starts.

Under 10 Girls will be sad to see the end of the season, with more and more players joining the team as the season progressed.

Our young Under 12 Girls side have shown real grit and determination to keep going in the face of low numbers, and were rewarded with a win in Round 13.

Our 12 Blue side were competitive in Red division after being promoted from Silver division where they dominated.

Our Under 13s, who have had a disrupted season with lower than expected numbers of players available necessitating a combined side, remained competitive in most games in Red division.

Thanks to all who pitched in to get the teams out on the field each week.

Training Sunday Under 14 Girls -Update

Hi All,

Sorry for the late notice but we have decided to have a training session on Sunday at 11.30 (new time) on the back oval.  I raised the idea with the team last week and the majority of the girls were keen to have a run.  I understand some would have made plans with the bye scheduled, but if the girls can make it on Sunday it would be great.  We need to build on such a strong performance last week and  I just think I need to grab every opportunity to put work into the girls for the simple reason that they are embracing their footy and getting better and better every week!  Hopefully we have 5 weeks until we play in the grand final which allows us  the opportunity to continue to get better and better, but remember the only way to get better is through hard work.  This weeks training was great with 5 girls attending training on Tuesday and 4 on Thursday, along with great numbers on Wednesday night.  To be honest our group have consistently had the best numbers at training of all the teams at Northcote week after week, which is a credit to the entire squad (it may be because they just love a chat with their mates, but when its time to get down to business they get the job done).

If you can get their early to support Faydia and the under 12 team who have yet to win a game it would also be appreciated.  They are mainly made up of bottom age girls and have found it tough this season but have never given up and continue to improve every week, they deserve your support!

First Aid Co-ordinator – Thanks And Goodbye!

An extra big thank you to Kylie Turton, our First Aid Coordinator, for her efforts this year in ensuring our Trainers are all appropriately trained and equipped to provide first aid for our players.

Unfortunately for us Kylie and her family are moving to Canberra, so we will need to find a replacement. Thanks again Kylie for everything you’ve done!

Clubroom Memorabilia

A big thank you to Catherine Hart who has been working to update our club memorabilia display.

She needs someone with a long ladder and a few hours to spare to give her a hand to finish putting the photos and flags up on the walls.

If you meet these criteria please email president@njfc.com.au who will pass on Catherine’s details.

Team Photos

Team photos are now available and most have been handed out at training. A few players have been given the team photo for the wrong team.

If there are mistakes with your photo please contact Bernadette Curry on awardsmanager@njfc.com.au but be quick – she will be away for the holidays from Monday.

Drivers Needed – Free Kick Program

We’re still looking for parents who can help with transporting kids from the Free Kick Program to and from training on any one Tuesday or Wednesday night during the first month of next term.

We need a driver and a supervisor for each minibus trip. A current drivers licence and Working with Children Check are required (an endorsed licence is not needed). Volunteers would need to be in Fitzroy for the first pick up at 4.45 on the day. Let president@nfjc.com.au know if there is a day when you can help out.

Child Safe Policy – Your Feedback Wanted!!

We are seeking feedback from members on the NJFC Child Safe Policy. We have developed this policy as part of our implementation of the Victorian Government Child Safe Standards, to help ensure children are protected from all forms of abuse..

Please forward any comments about the policy to Ann-Maree (president@njfc.com.au). The policy is attached for your convenience.
