Congratulations, Gordon – Wins FNSW State Award !!!

Football NSW’s State Dinner was held at the Rosehill Gardens Grand Pavilion last Saturday evening (8th November) in what was a fantastic celebration of community football with Manly Association’s Ray Fanning awarded the prestigious George Churchward Medal while Nepean Association’s Gordon Aiken scooped a state award.

NSW Minister for Sport and Recreation the Honourable Stuart Ayres, Member for Mulgoa Tanya Davies, Member for Smithfield Mr Andrew Rohan, Member for East Hills Mr Glenn Brookes, FFA’s Head of Community Football Emma Highwood, Football NSW Life Members, Football NSW CEO Eddie Moore and Football NSW Directors all came together to recognise and acknowledge the elite few who have provided consistent and invaluable service at the community level.

Hosted by Football NSW President Greg O’Rourke, the evening kicked off with the presentation of the State Award winners.  State Award winners are nominated by their Association in recognition of their tireless efforts and service to football in their local community. They formally recognise individuals who have provided consistent and valuable service at any level – Club, Association, Branch or State. These contributions may include services such as: committee member, coach, manager, match official, canteen manager or grounds person.

Gordon Aiken – Bio

Gordon has been a member of his club since 1989; he sits as its longest serving committee member (continuously since 1994) and was accepted as a club Life Member in 2003.

Gordon’s involvement with Blue Mountains FC began in 1989, not as a player, but as an interested parent, when he registered his two sons to play with the club.  25 years later, he’s still there!  Gordon has been either a coach or manager for all of his children’s teams.  Early in the piece, he completed his Coaching credentials, to make sure he knew all the rules, as he’d never been a player.  He always encouraged the kids, whether they won or lost – and he stills has that admirable sense of sportsmanship which is evident in everything that Gordon does.

As a committee member with a 21-year tenure, he has held all positions from General Committee Member to President, with the exception of Treasurer and Registrar.  For the past decade he has been the Club’s Vice President and Competition Secretary, but for his fellow committee members (and to quote the current club President) “he’s our font of all knowledge, a reasoned voice amidst the chaos and an invaluable club member who would be extremely hard to replace”.

Gordon goes about his business quietly. In doing so, he enriches the landscape of Nepean Football Association, beyond what he could ever imagine, and for that, we are in his debt.

A big THANK YOU …

A big THANK YOU …

The Board of BMFC would like to acknowledge and thank the following people for their tremendous efforts this season:
  1. all Managers for making our lives easier by organizing our (your) teams so well – be it for: canteen/BBQ/nets duty; Photo Days; whatever else we needed of your team; or for whatever your team needed of us.
  2. all Coaches for taking on the huge task of training our teams, but particularly the MiniRoos Co-ordinator (Andy Cartman) and the coaches of our Junior teams for taking on the responsibility of teaching and developing our younger players (and hopefully having fun in the process).
  3. the families of our junior players who supported their kid’s coaches, managers and the club week-in, week-out.
  4. the senior players who took on the role as Duty Officers on Sundays.
  5. everyone who volunteered to help set up and run the Junior Teams Presentation Day.
  6. BMFC Committee members (Margaret, Michael, Richard, Sue) for doing a whole heap of stuff throughout the year, all the way until the end of the AGM.
Hopefully we haven’t missed anyone (it’s certainly not intentional) – thank you all so much for your assistance!
Each of you has contributed to the running of your Club and to the community spirit that exists within it.  Enjoy the rest of 2014 and see you next year, for a huge 50th Anniversary.
BMFC Board (David, Gordon, Len, Barry & Sandy)

Match Report

GRAND FINAL 12/2

It’s a wonderful system that allows the 4th and 5th Placed Teams to meet in the Grand Final.

The rain finally cleared and the Fields were in surprisingly good condition. Our preparation for this big game was perfect as we trained the previous evening, then had an hour warm-up before the Game.

Eva Stanners kindly researched Yoga for Footballers, and put the boys through twenty minutes of stretches and relaxation. It was a first for many of the players, but all agreed it was a wonderful start to the day.

The Match was played in front of a very vocal crowd as both sets of perfectly-behaved Supporters urged their Team on.

The action swung end-to-end in the tightest of games, and it would of been a brave person who would of predicted the Winning Team. As the League Position suggests, there was very little between these two sides, and after Fifty Minutes, the game was Deadlocked at 1-1.

The boys were introduced to Extra Time, another ten pulsating minutes, where there was serious concern for the Elderly, and not so Old, on the Side Line! Everyone seemed to survive, still locked at 1-1, and time to move onto the Penalty Shootout.

It was all rather serious stuff, and hardly suprising Players had to be talked into taking a Kick. Sadly it didn’t go our way, despite some wonderful Goal Keeping from Robbie Churchill.

As usual NFA put on a wonderful Presentation, The Medal a memorable reward of a great day, and enjoyable Season.
