URGENT - Volunteers Required for the Canteen

The committee requires assistance with the running of the canteen during match days – even an hour can help a lot. If you are able to assist please contact -

Player Subs & Registration –

The Committee has determined the following subscription fees for the 2013 season -

Senior (men NPL & NPL 1 and ladies NPL) $290
Division Two $270
Under 18 $250

The subscription fees have been set to cover the cost of registering each individual player and nomination fees for each team (excluding Victory League) with FFT. The remaining balance will assist in funding approximately 40% of ground hire and rent.

All players will only be registered with FFT when they have paid at least 50% of their subscription fee in advance.

If a player is unable to make the 50% payment, the Committee may enter into an alternative arrangement for the payment of the subscription.

·      50% will have to be paid upfront by the start of the season.
·      Full payment will have to be received by the 1st of June.
·      If full payment has not been received by the 1st of June the player will be ineligible to play until full            payment is received.
·      All coaches and managers have been made aware of the new rules.

The expectation this season is that all past City players will self register online, via the following website:

Payments can be made by cash, cheque or card on Thursday nights during and after training in the clubrooms.

Any questions please contact Rob Luciani -

Dress Code for Players –

As discussed with all coaches and team managers, this season the dress code will be enforced for all who represent the club. The following attire is a minimum standard on game day –

  1. Alright, is it just me or is this a little strange? Why would they want you to put this on here? It's a bit like airing one's dirty laundry? Surely they have better channels or means of contacting players than asking you to post this on here?

  2. Agreed. Teams can post RELEVANT things on here but for message personally regarding club members and players can it not be posted on their own club page rather than clogging this space.. no offence but people trying to brainstorm a club function doesnt interest me that much

  3. I personally would say well done to whom ever put this post up.It would seem after you take out all the ducks and dives , it was an advert for . from a Knights supporter well done.
