Only 5 weeks or so until we kick off preseason, so as we draw to the end of our fantastic 70th year, we'd firstly like to say thanks for everyone's support thro...ugh the year, and let you know a few bits about 2017.
We're always hunting for new players for our existing teams, so if you'd like to join our very competitive Men's Championship (MC)squads, or our slightly more 'social' All Age team, please get in touch here.
With both MC teams finishing 2nd last season, we're looking for players who can help us get top spot in 2017, and we're also very excited by the fact that we'll be playing all of our MC home games on the Heffron Park Synthetic pitch. We'll be holding trials and kicking off preseason in early January.
You can register for trials/preseason at here.
For 2017, we're adding some new teams, including some kids teams for the first time.
We're really excited to be part of the FFA's MiniRoos programme through ESFA, and we're looking for boys & girls to come along and learn some new skills and have fun!
We're a smaller club, and that allows us to make sure that every child gets an enjoyable football experience.
All kids teams will have an accredited coach, get a free kit, ball, shinpads and more.
We'll be kicking off early in 2017, so if you'd like to find out more or register your childs interest, you can do so here.
Over 35's Mens
We're working hard behind the scenes to try to promote Friday night football for Over-35s.
We think it offers a great solution to those who can't play any longer due to weekend working or family commitments. Several other clubs have also expressed interest, so we're very hopeful of this in 2017.
So if you're 35+ by Jan 1st 2017 and keen to play, register your interest here and we'll be in touch.
We're also keen to restart a Women's team, which has been sorely missed for the last couple of years. We'd love to hear from anyone keen to play in a new Glebe Women's Team.
2017 Registrations Open for all teams
We're looking for players of all ages and abilities - we have teams in the ESFA Men's Championship, All Age Mens, Over 35 Mens and a MiniRoos programme catering from U-6's to U-12's.
We'll be holding trials and grading in early to mid January, so please register your details via the link below to be informed of all the important preseason details.
70th Anniversary Celebration
A hugely enjoyable and very successful evening was held in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, bringing together many generations of Glebe Wanderers. We were fortunate to have many former greats in attendance, and in particular John Richardson who first played for the club in 1966, and can still be found on the sideleines most weeks.
It was also a very successful evening for our Charity Partner, Their Beautiful Game, with those in attendance raising over $3000 between shirt auctions and TBG merchandise. You can visit www.theirbeautifulgame.org to find out some of the great work that Davie does.
We also drew Anniversary Raffle, with Lee Caredes being the lucky winner of 2 return flights to Europe.
And finally, we had some player awards for the year, with Colin Iley (MC), Ronnie Jones (MCR) and Kevin Bere (AA3) picking up the respective top goalscorer awards, with Player of the Year awards going to Mick Moynagh (MC), Paul Thorpe (MCR) and Fraser McPherson (AA3).
Many thanks to all involved in organising the evening, especially Mick Hanratty and Tony Carden for generating such great interest and attendance from a huge number of former players, and also huge thanks to all of those who attended and helped make the night such a great success!
