For those teams without a team manager, we would also like you to extend the invite to any prospective parents who are not 100% sure as to what the role entails and hopefully we will be able to answer any questions you have and support you in the role so if you could please pass this onto any parents who have expressed an interest that would be most appreciated.

Food and drinks will be provided. Being mindful of time, if you have anything you would like to raise or ask, please email myself and cc Liam Mallinson and Andrew Whalley so we can make a note to address this as I’m sure more than one person may have the same questions.

Condolences to Owen Burke’s Family

Dear Members
It’s with sadness, that I advise you of the passing of a past junior player of WDSC, over the weekend.

Owen Burke, played from the age of 12 until the age of 15 at WDSC. He was part of our 13’s Div 2 team, that won its league and top 4 cup final. Owen was a natural left footer and tended to play on the left wing, along with any other position asked of him. Owen was a very keen young boy and it was with pride, that we watched him grow into a young man of high standards, both on and off the pitch.

Owen, returned to the club, by way of a referee, after playing at WDSC and matured into his role as a referee.
Owen was diagnosed with Leukemia in recent years and was in good health and spirit in recent times. But the Cancer had spread.
Having known Owen personally, as he played along side my son, I offer both my deepest sympathies, as well as on behalf of WDSC committee, past coaches and players, along with those who had the pleasure to play alongside and be officiated by Owen.

To Ray, Florence and Owen’s sister Ruth. We at WDSC, will remember Owen, for the smile, energy and passion, that he had throughout his young and tragically cut short life.
Owen was 19. Owen was a wonderful young man. He will be missed.

Respectfully yours
Athan Tsirigotis
Committee, Coaches, Players and Members of WDSC

Congratulations to Teams

Dear Members,
If you haven’t already heard. Our Amateurs Premier team, won their Cup Final, last Sunday.
Thanks to all that came down to watch a “Class act” of football. WDSC played Gwelup in a strong game, right up to the final whistle.
There have been numerous posts and there is also, vision from the Cup Final day, showing highlights of all the games. The best is at the end of the game, showing, how dominant WDSC was in keeping control of the ball and game. This was evident in Stephen Geogheghon, being named, Man of the Match.

Congratulations to Colm Costello, Richie Doyle (Coaches), to their assistants Martyn Kelly, Colin Williams and Tony Prescott. To the Captain Ian Cleary and all of the squad for getting to where they aimed and receiving “Just Reward” for their efforts.

We could go on and describe the game, but their is plenty of that, from an “Unbiased” view, see the cup game highlights below:
Once again. Congratulations to our Amateurs Premier squad.

Winners are Grinners

18’s Division 1 Team

The long soccer season has finally come to an end and we would like to take this opportunity to commend the boys for a job well done. ‘Hard Work and Dedication’ were on show throughout the season with both teams committing to the cause, but it was the introduction of ‘Hunger and Desperation’ that really shone through. The two teams set platforms upon which to build upon next season with some tantalising performances.

18s Division 1 Team

Finishing champions of the 18’s Division 1 was no easy feat, but our boys did exactly that at the first attempt (making it 2 leagues won in 2 attempts for those that need reminding). It’s safe to say the bar has been raised very high for seasons to come. Congratulations to Dee and his team of coaches.

Ladies Division 3 Team

The Ladies Division 3 side backed up last years first season in seniors that closed out with the Division 4 title and Golden boot by going back to back. They took both the league title and golden boot again .

The same 18 player squad are achieving the promise and repeating the success they enjoyed as Juniors with many of the current squad being with the same team since 12s back in 2006 .

The coaches Alistair and Ady are delighted to have helped in some small way and they look forward to an assault on Division 2 next season if the ladies all return .

Several members of team will attend the Football West get together later in October to collect their well deserved trophies ahead of the Clubs Seniors presentation night where they will be presented with club trophies. Should be another successful and enjoyable night for the club.

Weekend Fixtures (7th June 2015)

Dear Members,

This Sunday 7th June is another big day down at Butlers Reserve. We have our 2nd week of SSF hub games, where our 5, 6 & 7 year olds, are hosting several other clubs. The “travelling circus” is held on 9 pitches within pitch 4 (upper oval). This is where it all begins at grass-roots level. The players and stars of tomorrow are learning what the game is all about. If you happen to have a relatively early game, please come down and have a look, as to how it all begins. Games start at 8:00am until 10:00am and then the pitch reverts to full size games.

The Wembley Downs Premiers are playing their recently promoted opponents Port Kennedy this coming Sunday afternoon (3:00pm). Port Kennedy are currently sitting in 2nd place and Wembley Downs in 6th place respectively, with 3 points being the difference. The Premier league is very tight across the top 6 teams. These placings, are changing week by week.

The Premier Reserves current placings are Wembley Downs 3rd and Port Kennedy 5th (12:45pm). Once again, the Premier Reserves ladder is also running tight.

Along with these games, we also have a “smorgasbord” of senior games in the afternoon. 2 Women’s, 3 Metro & 3 Masters games, all flowing on, from quality juniors games throughout the day.

We are always on the lookout for junior goalkeepers, to help out in the amateurs (Reserves & Premier) games, as “ball retrievers” during these 2 games. Ideally suited to those who are interested in goalkeeping, as you get to see and hear how premier league goalkeepers, from all teams, play at competition level. We need 2 per game, for 2 games. Please contact me (Athan) directly. Club provides lunch & drinks for these youngsters. But please bring a raincoat and change of clothes, just in case.

So come on down this weekend and give the boys support & support your Wembley Downs teams. It’s a great atmosphere.

Hope to see you all this coming Sunday.

Club Tracksuit Pants and Tracksuit Tops – Orders Taken

Dear Members,

I have been asked by a few members about Club tracksuit pants. If you would like a pair, black with printed club logo, then orders will need to be made by Sunday along with payment of $25.

They are very good quality so at $25 a great price. At the moment I only have an Adult large sample but hope to have more size samples by Friday.

I will be at the club this Thursday 7th May from 6.45pm to 8.30pm and Sunday 10th May from 11.00am to 1.30pm to take orders.

I am also able to take more orders for the Tracksuit tops for those who missed out on the 1st order (which is due in later next week). The tops are $35. Delivery will be early June.

Team Allocations for Junior Teams

Dear Members.
WDSC will NOT be holding a “Club Day”, this coming Sunday as previously planned.

Club day traditionally is where team lists are placed up at the club rooms & players are advised of their respective team placings. We have found over the years, that this is not an ideal scenario. Not all members are able to turn up & they then spend a week or two, trying to find out & meet with their respective team.

The following will be enacted.
Small Sided Football & Juniors (non graded). 5 years to 11 years inclusive, are currently receiving their team placements, via email from their respective coaches.

Juniors (Graded). 12s thru to 16s. Will be advised via email, through coaches & of team placements.

This system will allow all players to meet their teams at Butlers, in a more relaxed environment & convenient time. Kit sales, sizing & any queries anyone had, can be answered, as there is always a committee member on hand at training nights & during these initial “Meet & Greet” sessions.

WDSC has both official access & lights access to Butlers reserve from this coming Monday.

For those coaches who wish to commence training, please contact Andrew Whalley in regards to your training nights & pitch allocations. Andrew is asking those who have offered to coach & those who are considering coaching, to please contact him via email on v9008475@hotmail.com

This will enable an even & seamless integration as possible & for all parties, to actually meet together at the one time.

So please subscribe to the club’s website & keep up to date with all notices.
Our apologies, if this has inconvenienced anyone.

WDSC Committee

Season 2015 Pre-Registration for Juniors

Dear Members,

See below details of pre-registration for the 2015 season.  This is only available to 2014 junior players and not to any new players wishing to sign up for the 2015 season.  New players will have the oppurtunity to sign up to the club when registrations open up in early 2015.

WDSC Pre-Registration

If any of your children have outgrown their soccer boots from last season, bring them down to the pre-registration days as the club would like to encourage a soccer boot swap.  Please ensure that the soccer boots are in a reasonable condition.

Also if you could advise the the committee member of the team your child was in last season along with the shirt number it would greatly assist us in ensuring that there are no clash of numbers for the new season.

Hope to see you at the pre-registration days.

Regards,
WDSC Committee
