ARFC Season Launch 2018

Adamstown Oval

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!
