Magpie Mail – Edition 10

2020-08-25T17:07:23+10:00

Dear Players, Parents and Supporters, And so the season marches on. It started with the threats of drought and bushfires, then morphed into this horrible coronavirus, and if we hadn’t had our enthusiasm tested enough it hit us on the weekend with some horrific winds and freezing temperatures. It has certainly tested everybody’s enthusiasm, patience and spirit. However, having said that, I am incredibly pleased to see how well all our teams are performing. Our Youth teams are having their best year ever. By my calculation across the 4 teams [...]

2020-08-07T15:16:21+10:00

Dear All, This edition of Magpie Mail needs to be solely related to the COVID-19 concerns of this weekend. The concerns are that important. Youth play at Cooks Square Saturday against Mid North Coast Seniors play at Darling St Oval on Saturday against Olympic Youth. I congratulate the foresight shown by Dan Barge and Youth coaching staff at this start of this week. They identified that we were due for a very wet weekend and made early arrangements to get the games moved from Sunday to Saturday, in the hope [...]

Dear All, 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 [...]

24th July 2020 Welcome back to the next edition of the Magpie Mail. Apologies for missing an edition last week, it wasn’t through lack of content, more because of lack of time. The restart of the competition, in its restricted form and conditions, is proving in these early stages to be very time consuming for all involved in the club. COVID-19 Concerns It seems that at least every second conversation nowadays is about COVID-19. Certainly, every news item is about the subject. Unfortunately, it is a part of our lives [...]

NSW GOVERNMENT CHANGES TO COMMUNITY FOOTBALL

2020-07-18T10:47:03+10:00

GOVERNMENT CHANGES TO COMMUNITY FOOTBALL EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY. Over the past week, there has been a rise in case numbers of COVID-19 throughout Victoria and New South Wales. As such, late yesterday the NSW Government requested the sporting community take all reasonable steps to reduce the risk of infection through minimising the number of spectators attending community sport. So, in addition to maintaining good hygiene, on behalf of our Clubs and Football Community, we ask all participants, particularly spectators, to take onboard the following measures: Where possible, have just one parent/carer [...]

Well we are just about out of sleeps now, before we are back on the field and get this NPL competition underway. I must take the opportunity of the last communication before restart, to ask you all to be appreciative of the work that has been done to get us to this point. It would be easy to think that the last 4 months have been spent with our feet up, but that is far from the case. Club management have battled and almost waged war, at every level, in [...]
