President's Welcome 2010

Dear Members,

Welcome to all of our returning and new members of Mt Colah Soccer/Football Club for 2010. After another highly successful season in 2009, we are looking forward to another enjoyable season for everyone. We had a record number of 543 players in 2009 playing in 43 teams, also a record.


Our on field highlights for 2009 included having 5 teams becoming Premiers. Congratulations to our 12B’s, 13B’s, 16s, Women’s 18B’s and our Over 35 Men’s first grade. Our 12Bs and Over 35 Men’s first grade teams also won their Grand Finals. We also had 5 Gala Day winners. Congratulations to the 6Colts, 14s mixed, Girls 12s, Women’s 14As and Women’s 16s.


During the year we also held a very successful Club Dinner at the Asquith Golf Club with over 100 people in attendance who all had a very enjoyable night. We hold our Club Dinners every second year.

The club also had a very enjoyable Gala and Presentation Day at Foxglove Oval.

After the season finished, the club held its annual Golf Day with a record number of participants. A lot of fun was had by all and the winner was Rob Cox for the second year running. A big thank you to John Barnes, our PR and Media officer, for organising another great day.

In 2010 the club will be represented in all age groups, both mixed and women. With the Small Sided Football format being twigged again to be nearly at the right mix for all Junior Age groups, we have many teams registered for all abilities in 2010. Early indications are that this year will see another record number of players in our club. Soccer is definitely a force in the Mt Colah community.

A big thank you must go to all of the committee members of our club who put in a tremendous amount of time and effort into making the club the best it can be and for the support they have given me. We have certainly made great strides over the past few years with the number one goal being that all of our players and supporters enjoy themselves.

I look forward to seeing you throughout the season. Go the Colts!

Paul McSweeney - President
