As we get deeper into the year and the season, the obstacles and challenges continue to confront us. The recent wet weather, postponement of games and impacts on training schedules are all impediments that add to the concerns we already struggle with in daily COVID-19 related life.

I assure you though, that from a Maitland Football point of view, the club’s Executive and Management Committee are absolutely dedicated to the task of providing the opportunity for competitive football for the Youth in our charge. We don’t always get it right, but I assure you we always give it the best effort.

Youth Games Away this weekend at Charlestown.

I wish our Youth teams the best of luck. Our start to the season, whilst mixed for each team, in general has been very positive and heartening. The stop/start nature of the season due to the Virus, plus impacted by regular wet weather has limited development opportunities. Overall though, performances looking very positive. We just need to keep on believing in ourselves and our team mates.

Senior Games Home this weekend against Valentine.

Good results against Lake Macquarie allowed us to recover from some of the disappointment that we experienced at Edgeworth the week before. The signs are good that we will come away with points on Sunday, but we must fight hard to ensure that sort of result in each game. Head Coach Bolchy (Michael Bolch) knows the importance of the 1st grade squad getting into a consistent mindset of hard work, commitment and completion and he is certainly looking for full points out of the next few games.
