Dear Galaxy FC members,

We are in our final month of football and would like to share an update with you.

End of Season Dates:

The (regular) season is scheduled to end on the first weekend of October. If your/your child’s team is in an age group that has finals and qualifies (U12/s and above) the semi finals and grand final will be played the following two weekends to finish the season. We please ask that you arrange with your team coach/manager on returning the jersey on the last day and will send another reminder on this.

Presentation Day:

We’re very disappointed that COVID-19 has prohibited our Club and all clubs from holding Presentation Days, particularly in our inaugural season. We hope our big plans for this event can come to fruition in 2021. Trophies have been ordered for every active registered playing child and will be available to be handed out by your team’s coach/manager on the last day of the season. We acknowledge it is on the long weekend but encourage you to be there for the last game for your child to have the excitement of receiving their trophy.

Team Photos:

It’s just as disappointing that we’ve been unable to arrange team photos for the same reason. We encourage each team to use its own initiative if they would like to have a lasting memory of their first season with Marsden Park Galaxy FC. Please be aware of and follow the current guidelines for photography and filming at matches during the game:

Players must comply with the 1.5m social distancing rule when off the field, this means no huddles before each half and no photos prior to or after the game.

A couple of team initiatives we know taking place are a parent may have a team photo already taken prior and can make copies for everyone in the team or parents can take a photo of their child in their jersey/uniform and they can be put together with their team mates individual photos like a child care class photo, etc.

Thank you

Once again the MPGFC committee would like to thank you all for support and understanding. Enjoy the rest of the season and stay safe. Go Galaxy!!!
