Bendigo City FC – June+July 2017
August 21, 2017

To The Bendigo Football Community

As the core of the season passes by the club has continued to see improvement in the junior results. We have seen our SAP teams compete in the Melbourne Gala Days, our TIDC players represent Victoria in Japan and a number of our players represent their schools in the state competitions. 

Our SAP program has continued to grow and participation in the Holiday Programs has almost doubled. We have seen a great standard in the local league with a continued growth in participation throughout the season. A number of coach education events have successfully been undertaken with the first week of the inaugural Bendigo FFV C License being run by David Smith and Louise McColl. 

As we move forward into the final stages of the 2017 season I wish you all the best with your matches, end of season events and the start of planning for next year! I look forward to the end of a very successful season as we continue to see positive development in players all over the region.

Bendigo City FC – May 2017
June 7, 2017

To The Bendigo Football Community

As we now approach the half way point in the season there is no doubt we are in full Football mode. The junior teams have continued to stride forwards with almost all outfits managing wins over the last month impressing on a number of fronts as we continue to show our progression towards becoming competitive with every team we play. 

The under 12 side has continued to flourish without a week going by where they do not secure at least one win whether at home or away all over Victoria both Coaches Darcy Tucker and Steve Robinson can be congratulated for what is being done with this group.

Louise McColl and her Under 13s got up 1-0 against Werribee last weekend with their first win of the season, a well deserved result for the youngest of the 11 a side teams a clear display of the hard work that has been put in.

The Under 14s continue to develop under the Professorial leadership of Marcus Dawson, their understanding of the game and fluid patterns of play are a sign of the bright future this group has ahead of them. They have shown no fear going up against all opposition with the fire in their belly and determination in their eyes. A good example of the positive work going on in this group is the inclusion of Darcy McRostie in the Melbourne City Under 18 side as a training player which is very exciting news.

Despite a few tough weeks at the office Pete Lodewijks and his Under 15 boys have grown in understanding, ability and confidence throughout the year. They have put on a number of fine displays and no doubt will continue to show their talent throughout the remainder of the season. 

A recent late winner to see the the Under 16s go up 2-1 at home to Werribee with what could have been labelled goal of the season after a fine pattern of play saw Nick Williams strike the ball from outside the box in the final moments of the game to give Dave Gibbs and his side their third win of the season. 

After what has been a tough year for the Under 18 side there is no doubt that a 1-0 win at Geelong was the highlight for Joseph Failla and his troops. The side managed a late winner away in wet and muddy Geelong to seal 3 points and their first victory of the season. The group has been troubled by injury however their hard work and discipline has never been questioned. The right processes are in place and the group has developed hugely throughout the year.

The Under 20 side continues to compete week in week out with an array of close matches and top performances. Grant Lane has worked furiously with the boys and they continue to provide up and coming players for the senior side. It has been a tireless effort from Grant and his players and we look forward to the remainder of the season with a few wins just around the corner. 

As the transfer window opens and the Seniors continue their push to avoid relegation their is a sense of belief around the club. It may have been a tough year but there is no doubt that the energy in training and around the rooms has lifted significantly with the arrival of a number of new players including 2 players signed from USA in an attempt to push above the drop zone. Heath Trethan and his hard working assistants Peter Lodewijks and Simon Horne (Goalkeeping Coach) has no doubt added his own flavour to the side and after two competitive performances against the top two sides we are full of confidence going into the final stretch of the season. 

With the juniors set for the return leg of their fixtures it will be a great chance to show the improvement that has taken place throughout the season as we continue to grow as a footballing community. We have a very exciting Friday Night Lights event on the 16th June at Epsom Huntley which will culminate in the inaugural President’s X1 vs Bendigo City U18 fixture. This will see a select group of Bendigos finest Local talent with Under 21 players from all BASL clubs taking part. Head Coach of the Presidents X1 Ryan Pollard will be excited to put his side on show in what will be a great showing of the close relationship between the Bendigo Amateur Soccer League and Bendigo City FC. 

I wish all the boys and girls the best with their country championships, local fixtures and NPL games this weekend. Remember to keep practicing and never forget. Football comes First.

Bendigo City FC – April 2017
April 26, 2017

To The Bendigo Football Community, 

After another month of football we can now truly say the season is underway and everyone is in full swing with the NPL season so far. We have seen a great variety of results and performances from teams in all age groups throughout the first rounds of the season. We have competed with sides like Hume City who are reputed as one of the strongest Victorian clubs, for this the boys and girls can be very proud of themselves and the clear improvement that is coming from the hard work put in by players, parents and coaches. 

Despite a competitive performance across most age groups throughout the season sometimes a lack of ability to keep intensity for the whole game is a downfall. Often the first or second half is incredibly close however the other we give other sides the opportunity to capitalise on mistakes and get a comfortable lead. A good focus for the coming month will be to maintain effort, concentration and intensity for the full matches across all age groups and hopefully turn those close losses and draws into victories. 

With the movement in the senior side it is good to welcome local Heath Trathern who is currently the Head Coach of the First X1 and putting in strides with his ably equipped technical team to fight a difficult relegation battle. The side have seen a number of good performances in recent weeks however are awaiting their first victory and hopefully with all the right processes in place it will only be a matter of time before this is visible in results. 

The club along with BASL ran its first Holiday Programs which were a great success and will continue to operate during the school holidays as the year progresses. We have also opened up a SAP program which runs Mondays and Friday nights 430-6pm at Epsom and we welcome any late comers who wish to sign in to contact td@bendigocityfc.com.au so we can facilitate the registration process. 

Another great month in Bendigo and I wish you all the best for the coming fixtures including Ballarat this weekend which is always a Country Derby (of sorts!) 

I look forward to seeing you all down there and to continue seeing each and every child improving week in week out! 

Yours In Football,

Bendigo City FC – March 2017
March 20, 2017

To The Bendigo Football Community, 

With under 1 month until the start of the local junior season and three rounds into the NPL season football is well and truly upon us in this early stage of the year. Over the past two weeks we have seen huge improvements across all age groups with some incredibly close fixtures and some hard fought contests. 

The support has continued to be impressive not only the number of parents attending but the behaviour which helps create the correct environment for our players to develop on the field. Although sometimes I understand passion overflows, I advise us all to remain calm, breath deep and trust in the officials, staff and our children for the correct on field outcome.

With St Albans and the Sunshine George Cross we faced too tough sides who were both equipped throughout the age groups to compete with sides from all over Victoria. As a group Bendigo showed an ability to fight back from behind, shift the momentum of games and create chances from all areas of the field. It feels as though all teams are the better side for 40-60% of the matches but maintaining that intensity and energy for 100% of the match is a challenge. 

Week by week I have already seen this improve and our Under 18s were a prime example of improvement against Sunshine Cross, unlucky to go down in the final minutes but creating goals, defending well and putting themselves in a position to win a thriller. 

As we draw closer to the start of the season, the opening of the SAP programs and the local fixtures the football buzz continues to rise. It will be a very important year for those involved with football in Bendigo and I just hope the same clear message rings out to all the kids in the region. Have Fun At Football! Thats Why We Do It. 

Finally A great effort from our senior team who went down to a very strong Altona Magic side in the FFA Cup. It was a good effort from the boys and we were unfortunate in defeat. Hopefully next weekend the seniors will be brining 3 points home against fellow NPL2 side Werribee. 

The Juniors will be on our first away day in Melbourne. Please remember we all represent the club and on a larger level Bendigo in each and every away fixture. Lets wear the correct uniforms, behave in the correct way both on and off the field and enjoy the opportunity to travel and play some of the best clubs and kids in Victoria. 

All the best for the coming week!

Bendigo City FC – February 2017
March 7, 2017

To The Bendigo Football Community, 

After our first Super Saturday I feel as though my confidence in the potential of Football here in Bendigo has risen greatly. A great amount of support from the local community and a huge effort from kids across the board in all the groups from the Under 12 9 a siders to the Senior First Grade side who were unfortunate not to clinch a victory in a hotly contested 1-1 draw against Richmond. 

A big thanks must also be put out to the travelling Avondale parents, players and coaches who were highly competitive and professional in the way they carried themselves. We wish them all the best of luck for the remainder of the season and look forward to the return leg in the coming months. 

Two observations from the weekend on things we can do better as a community are making sure we arrive on time and considering what is the best for the kids bodies. If you want to be an athlete at any level you need to behave like an athlete in all walks of life. Not just two nights a week and one day on the weekend. 

  • Timeliness for Training and Matches (Across the board from U12-Senior Squad)
    ‘Arrive 10 minutes before the time you are told’ 
  • Consider your body as your machine 
    ‘Drink lots of water, sleep correctly, eat correctly and make sure you don’t overwork yourself!’
    ‘Maximum Freshness Minimum Fatigue Maximum Effort = Maximum Performance Outlay’

Thanks to everyone for their attendance over the weekend and hard work to get the season up and running. I am very excited for the coming weeks both with the NPL season up and running and the start of the BASL year along with some exciting new programs and holiday camps. 

Finally I must congratulate Epsom FC on their efforts representing Bendigo in the FFA Cup. They were unfortunate to face a hard fought defeat 3-2. They came back gallantly after being 2-0 down at half time and showed great spirit and ability to almost pull it back for a draw. A great effort to progress through to this stage of the competition and great to see the success of the BASL clubs at a  local community level! Well Done Bendigo!! 

All the best for the coming week!

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.

Match Report Weekend 12th & 13th March
March 14, 2016

Bendigo seniors played Whittlesea Ranges at Epping Stadium, Epping, on Saturday evening.  Donte Thomas Bendigo City’s reserves goal keeper kept a clean slate with a nil all draw for the U20 match, whilst the strikers had their chances but failed to entertain the crowd like they did last week at home against Moreland.

After a very competitive first half, the Bendigo City seniors were unlucky to walk in at half time a goal down. After some great pieces of play Bendigo City with a depleted bench ran out of legs to go down 4-0.  

The Bendigo City Juniors played the best of FFV’s young talented players at home at Epsom on Sunday.  The Bendigo City’s Under 16 showed the benefit of several seasons having played at this level providing very strong competition to the National Training Centre Blue team without their regular coach Grant Lane away for License accreditation going down just 6 – 5, along with a significant player injury, Luke Burns being stretchered from the field.

With many of the Bendigo’s sides rudderless with coach license upgrades in Melbourne this weekend, and the remaining coaches having to step in to coach several teams, the squads still provided good competition for their visitors.  The U12’s went down 3-0, the U13’s 7-0, the U14’s striker Jimi Fawcett scored to put them on the sheet but still going down 6-1.  The strong U15’s Bendigo side were outclassed by the accomplished opposition going down 3-0. Whilst the U18 with a small bench and imports from other teams managed to score but also went down 7-1.

Bendigo City FC rules on Kingston City’s pitch
May 25, 2015

BENDIGO City FC broke a long-running winless streak in Saturday night’s National Premier League Victoria division one soccer clash with Kingston City.

Riley Dillon and Karl Slevin were on target as Bendigo led 2-0 by half-time at The Grange in Clayton South.

Unlike the previous round, Bendigo’s defence would not be broken this time as Kingston City was kept goalless.

“The back four was superb,” said victorious coach Greg Thomas.

“Every player battled hard for one another.”

The win was Bendigo’s first since a 5-1 defeat of  Sunshine George Cross on Anzac Day.

The under-20s match on Saturday ended in a 2-1 win for Kingston.

Bendigo City FC juniors played well on Green Gully’s turf in the latest round of the National Premier League Victoria soccer action.

The Bendigo line-ups achieved two wins, a draw and two defeats in Saturday’s play.

The under-14s had a bye.

In the under-15s, the Aaron Vissers-coached Bendigo celebrated a thrilling 3-2 victory. Oliver Huzzey and Owen Hughes scored early on the way to a 2-1 lead at half-time. Luke Burns increased the margin. Green Gully scored with 10 minutes to play. Bendigo controlled a lot of the play to secure maximum points.

The Richard Graham-coached under-12s continue to match their metropolitan opponents. Another great battle ended in a 3-2 win for Bendigo. Patrick Mathers, Rueben White and Will Keating all beat the defence.

Bendigo’s in-form under-16s drew 1-1 as Owen Turbitt was on target. Ryan Pollard’s squad now sit fourth on the NPL west ladder.  Despite missing Saturday’s clash because of injury, Matthew Sporle continues to lead the NPL west’s under-16 goalscoring on 15.

The under-18s had a tough match as Green Gully won 5-0.

Bendigo City’s under-13s went agonisingly close to securing their first victory for the season. Thomas St Clair and Jacob Creevey struck goals, but Green Gully won 3-2.

Dear Supporters,

We have a lot of work to do to secure the future of the club and this starts at the AGM on Monday night the March 30th 2015. The interim committee has established the club but now its over to the community to take over control. We would urge anyone that is interested in getting more involved to make themselves known.

Importantly we need a quorum so we need you to attend the AGM on Monday night the March 30th 2015.

If you want to be on the committee please contact Travis St Clair ASAP for more information.

There will be opportunities to be on sub-committees as well so if you see a role for yourself please make it known.

There will be committee elections at the AGM where you will be eligible to vote if you are either:

1. Over 18yo and paid player registration.

2. A parent of a player under 18yo. One player one vote.

3. Club member – membership is $90 per person.

We needs lots of support to run the club and are keen to gain wider community involvement and ownership. So, if you would like to be involved then please speak to someone at the club – coach, team manager or interim committee members.

We hope to see you on Monday.

Regards
