Technical Director Introduction
February 21, 2017

To The Bendigo Football Community, 

I must first introduce myself as the new Technical Director for Bendigo City FC. I will also as part of my role be helping to create a football eco-system in Bendigo starting from the very bottom at Mini-Roos, progressing through BASL, SAP and the Development Squads before moving into the NPL with BCFC and hopefully beyond as we see our players reach the pinnacle of Football whether it be in Australia or Elsewhere! 

I hope that together we will be able to work for more and better players in Bendigo. My focus will be that of Talent Development and my intentions are to create the best possible pathway for players in this region to assure they both enjoy the game and also reach their potential. 

During my first weekend of matches in Ballarat I have seen lots of positives, lots of helpful parents and lots of happy kids loving their football. If this attitude and enthusiasm can be maintained for the entire season I have no doubt that we will all have a great year. 

I feel as though the weekend was a great success for all involved and I personally learnt a two key things from the days events.

1. The weather in these parts is somewhat unpredictable, feeling the Australian Heat, The English Rain and the Atlantic Cold all in the space of the Under 15s match! Assured to bring numerous changes of clothes to match days from now on!

2. The Under 12 side is possibly the most fashionable football squad in the world with numerous headbands, beanies and multi coloured socks. The bar has been set high for the other squads that is for sure! 

Thanks to you all for your participation and I look forward to meeting each and every one of you during the season. If you ever have any questions or queries feel free to contact me at any time whether it be through email or in person around the grounds. 

Yours In Football,

Freddie Seccombe

Match report for 9 & 10 April – A weekend of strong competition
April 11, 2016


Bendigo City FC faced strong competition over the weekend, with the Seniors and Under 20s taking on North Geelong Warriors FC and the junior teams matching it with Moreland Zebras FC in Melbourne.


The Epsom Huntly Recreation Reserve was host to the North Geelong Warriors, who took home the points in both matches on Saturday evening.


The Bendigo City Seniors went down 7-2 after North Geelong got a very strong start scoring six goals in the first half. Bendigo finished with a strong second half performance, scoring two goals and holding Geelong to only one goal. Goal scorers for Bendigo were David Younan and George Mcheilah. Youngsters Matthew Sporle and Lachlan Beever performed well against strong competitors. Goal keeper Dante Thomas made some great saves under pressure.


The Under 20s also went down to North Geelong, 7-1, with Say Kapaw scoring a stunning header for Bendigo in the opening minutes of the match.


The junior matches provided some great skills and entertainment, in particular the goal filled Under 13s match that saw Bendigo City just pipped at the post, losing 6-5 after a very strong second half in which the team scored four goals.


Once again the Under 15 and 16 Bendigo teams came away with a win, strengthening their positions on the ladder.


The Under 15s won 1-0 in a very tight match. Lachlan McRostie got a head to a free kick from Tom Kay which was too strong for the Moreland Zebras goalkeeper to stop. The Under 16s won 3-2, with Alastair Merkel scoring two for Bendigo and Matthew Gallagher scoring another.


The Under 18s went down 3-0 but their coach was pleased with a solid performance against strong competition. The Under 14 and Under 12 Bendigo teams were both held to nil scores by skilled Moreland teams.

Come along and watch the region’s best juniors play this Sunday when Bendigo City Junior teams take on Pascoe Vale FC at Epsom Huntly Recreation Reserve. Matches start at 10.00am. The Seniors and Under 20 teams will travel to Melbourne on Saturday to take on Moreland Zebras FC.
