Golden Oldies Soccer


With the winter field competition ended, we are expecting the younger players to join us again on Sundays.  Over the last Sundays, we have been quiet due to some rain and the Eurofest, but nothing stands in the way of making use of the dry and still cool weather for older guys to get stuck into the game again.  Thanks to our friendly Armenian rivals, we have for the last months managed to play with small, teams, but when you get a bit long in the teeth, it is a tad too much running when the young guys are not there yet, and please pass the word that at minimum cost, any willing and able player is welcome to stretch his or her legs and have a go at their tempo.  Use it or lose it.   

On Saturday evening, 17th November, our Golden Oldies organize again our annual dinner and fun night with a well-stocked raffle and this time it is themed The Austria- Hungarian Friendship Evening, whereby we invite everyone, including our Armenian friends to show that in Australia we love everyone, even when we lose against them.  Please support our Golden Oldies with joining our games, or at least by joining us on Saturday night 17th November for some fun and reminiscing about our former players, games and interstate trips together.  By saying this I would like to spare a thought for our former manager Joe Wendelberger, who is presently in Mona Vale hospital.  Hang in there Joe, we are thinking about you.  I look forward to seeing many of our players and former players with their wives and partners on our Dinner & Fun Night on 17 November or on the pitch.
