Toby Wight Head Shave

Supporting East Gippsland United FC

The East Gippsland community was devastated by the bushfires last summer with many businesses, farmers and families impacted. So too was its football community. Altona City Soccer Club set up a fundraiser to support the families of the East Gippsland United FC that were unable to pay for their children’s 2020 soccer fees. 
Unfortunately, due to COVID, our bush fire raffle and gold coin collection at the Lightning Cup was unable to take place.
Thankfully due to the determination of Toby, his family, and Football 4 Football Bush Relief fundraising coordinator Kim Powell the third planned part of our fundraising went ahead.
Altona City SC U18  player Toby Wright wanted to help the cause and put his hand up to shave his good crop of curly hair. A GoFundMe page was set up and Toby raised a very impressive $1,339.05 for the families of the East Gippsland FC. 
Thank you, to Toby for stepping up and ‘donating’ his hair to assist with the bushfire fundraising efforts and to Kim Powell for all your hard work in leading the Football 4 Football Bush Fire Relief fundraising campaign. 
Check out the before, during, and after photos of Toby’s head shave.

End of Season Celebration and Awards

2019 

Junior Presentation

At Altona City Soccer Club we recognise the contribution our players bring to both their teams and our club. Each year we acknowledge and recognise players for their contribution with a number of awards at the presentation.

On Saturday 21 September we had plenty of fun at the 2019 junior presentations. Our U8-U13 junior teams celebrated at Luna Park with 190 attending which kept four Luna Park staff very busy checking them in and allocating wrist bands. While at our clubrooms the U14-16s celebrated with an outdoor movie screening Shazam in the evening.

Below is a summary of this year’s awards. Congratulations to all our junior players!

The Robert Bulic Award

The Robert Bulic Award is awarded to an U12 player in memory of former Altona City Soccer Club player Robert Bulic who tragically lost his life in 1984 while at a school camp.

The award is given to a player who demonstrates leadership, respect, compassion and integrity with a spirit for team and club.

This season there are two recipients. We congratulate A’lisandro Bradford and Jesse Longaretti-Schreppel for being the Robert Bulic Award recipients in 2019.

Congratulations A’lisandro and Jesse!

The Melinda Barbieri Award

Melinda Barbieri played junior soccer at Altona City and now plays for Melbourne Victory in the Australian W-League. The club created the award in her name to be presented to an U12 female player and selected by the coach who is considered to be someone who shows potential for being an A-League player.

This year the Melinda Barbieri Award recipient wasAyah Kaddour.

Congratulations Ayah!

 

Recognising Long Service Players at Altona City

The Long Service Player Certificates recognise players who have participated in and completed 10 consecutive seasons at Altona City Soccer Club.

The five players who commenced playing in the U6/7 junior teams have been recognised for their long service to the club playing in the U16s this year.

This achievement is quite a rare occurrence and we feel privileged to have these players at our club who have each demonstrated a great commitment to the Altona City Soccer Club and the game they love.

Pictured below – a walk back in time for the five Long Service Award recipients.
