Players, coaches, managers, parents, spouses, sponsors and volunteers packed the Newcastle United Sports Club last night to help launch the 2018 season for the ‘buds’. Our Club President, Andrew Licata, gave a passionate presentation on what it means to play for the “red & green” in what will be our 129th year as a football club.
Our 2018 squads and coaches were introduced to the crowd, including our brand new Under 9 SAP players who have joined ARFC, as a team, for the first time this year. The launch included a fascinating presentation by our 1st Grade Coach, Shane Cansdell-Sherriff, who reflected on his career in Europe as a professional footballer and described his enthusiasm in what will be his debut season as a senior coach.
Our first competitive NPL matches kick-off tomorrow (Sunday 4th March) at Adamstown Oval, where we take on Valentine Phoenix in the youth fixtures. See you at the ground!
