UPDATED: July 22, 2016
Unfortunately Ched Towns Reserve (both fields) and Blue Hills Mod 1 & 2 fields for U8-U9 remain closed for Saturdays games.
Ched Towns will be re-inspected tomorrow afternoon for play on Sunday, but it doesn’t look that great at present (re pic below).
Our U5-U7 MiniRoos games will proceed tomorrow, as will the visit from WSW Shannon Cole.
Competition teams (U12+) please check the NFA draw system as your home match may be rescheduled to a neutral venue in order to complete the round this weekend. If your game doesn’t appear in the draw, then it has been postponed and await confirmation from NFA on when it will be rescheduled, which will be at short notice as the Championship Series is meant to commence next weekend.
We are disappointed as all members would be with the amount of washouts and rain affecting weekend games, rescheduled games mid-week and impact to training in the later half of this season, but we are all bound to what nature decides. Here’s hoping for a sunny August!

This notice is for Competition Teams (U12 and up) ONLY:
This weekend will see the completion of all 6 and 8 team competition matches (weather permitting). Our teams in 10 team competitions still have 3-4 matches to play. GPFC have 5 junior and 6 senior teams all within striking distance of the League Championship. Good luck to all our teams in their quest for Premiership glory in these final rounds!
Upon completion of your competition league matches we will move straight into the end of season “NFA Championship Series”.
The Championship Series is a separate mini-tournament to the regular league competition matches. Please note that these are not semi-finals in order to determine the competition winners. The League competition winners have always been the team ‘first past the post’ i.e. in first place after all competition rounds have been played.
From next weekend (30/31 July), we will commence the Championship Series for 6 & 8 Team competitions. The draw for these games will be released by NFA by mid next week. When searching for your games in NFA draw system you will need to select “2016 Championship Tournament” under the Competition type.
Please note that this year there will be no promotion or relegation from your current division. You will play your ‘Championship Series’ matches in the same division as you are now.
Depending on your current Age/Division competition structure, you will be placed into one of two pools, (except 6 team comps with only 5 teams). The pool formats vary for 6 & 8 team competitions. For our teams in 10 team comps, once these competitions conclude, only the top 4 placed teams will take part in the Championship Series. Two teams from each Age/Division that have progressed through their Championship Series rounds (as per their format), will play in a “Championship Series Final”, which is scheduled for the weekend of 27/28 August at Jamison Park.

Note: SSF U5-U11 will continue with their regular round games through to Saturday 20 August.
