New committee kicking goals at majos soccer club
MAJOS Soccer Club is ready to usher in a new era.
The club enters the 2009 season with a new executive, headed by president Carmel Thompson, and will unveil a new strip.
However, the 'news' don't end there.
The club has launched an ambitious plan to field a senior team for the first time in two years.
With that in mind, club officials are hoping for a big turn out at its first sign-on day, to be held this Saturday at St Mary's Primary School in Turf Street, Grafton, from 9am to 1pm.
There will be a partial distribution of the club's new playing strip on the day. Parents will also be able to purchase socks and shorts for their children after registration is complete.
Thompson said the shorts and socks were being provided at a minimal cost as the club had some very substantial backing for this season and beyond.
As part of the registration, any new player will require a passport sized photo and their birth certificate, which is a North Coast Football guideline.
Returning players should have their rego numbers available from last season to make the process a little easier.
Thompson said the new committee had worked hard behind the scenes to secure a new playing strip.
“We discussed the new strip idea at a meeting and we thought it would be too hard to complete in one season,” she said.
“But the support we received from local businesses has been fantastic.
“Hanks Kitchen has come on board as a major sponsor, and is sponsoring all of the small sided teams. That encompasses up to three teams each in the under-6s and 7s as well as possibly two teams in the 8s and 9s.”
A second sign-on day will be held on February 14. Players and parents can contact Thompson on 6642 5265 for more information.
