    Playing Soccer in OZ

    We are training at Central Park Malvern, Tuesdays and Thursdays, why not come along to training this week we can have a chat and even look to get you involved this weekend.
  2. If you’re interested in playing Soccer/Football for the approaching 2014 season Old Melburnians Soccer Club (OMSC), arw Melbourne’s fastest growing clubs, is looking for players of all standards to join our growing squad for the 2014 season. OMSC is based at Central Park Malvern, we currently field 5 teams: 2 Saturday teams (Senior & Reserve) who play in State League. We also have three Sunday teams comprising players of all ages & skill level. Due to the poplular nature of this club a 6th team is likey to be added to the 2014 playing season. Our Saturday Seniors were placed 2nd in 2013 & are seriously looking for promotion in 2014. Amongst the playing group, ages range from teenagers to veterans in their 40s. The club has players from all backgrounds, of all nationalities, & residing in councils from Boroondara, Monash, Manningham, Bayside, Glen Eira, Port Phillip, Stonnington, Yarra & many other areas. Everyone is welcome at OMSC regardless of your playing standard or fitness. Pre-season training starts mid-Jan 2014
  3. Sounds familiar, Darren what software are you in, i do oracle, c# etc, and i too applied for thousands of jobs, that i too though nail that...., i did get a few offers after a bit though....
  4. *Bump* check out the website for all the pre-season training dates starting with a social get together on the 17th of Jan
  5. Outdoor 11-a-side football (soccer) team require new players for next season. We have two mens teams playing every Saturday (1st team and reserves) and two thirds mens teams every Sunday. Home games are played in Cheltenham although we have players commuting from the city/st kilda if you live that way and need lifts... On top of this we have several junior sides covering a ranges of ages and are looking at potentially setting up a ladies term for next season. If you are not aware of how the leagues operate, the season runs roughly from early April until September and we start pre-season in January. We currently plan to have social drinks on Sunday 17th January for a meet & greet for old & new players with the first pre-season training being on Tuesday 19th January. The mens teams train once or twice a week on Tuesday and/or Thursday although not an issue if you can't make all the training. It will depend on which team you are looking to play for... Our seniors and reserves have been promoted and due to a few retirements they are on the look out for some good new acquisitions. Our thirds teams which is more social and informal (but serious) have also lost a few players for next season as some of our players have moved back overseas to Ireland/England. We will therefore be looking to recruit new players, preferably with some decent experience. All nationalities welcome. If you are interested at all, please drop me an e-mail and give me some brief details and I can fill you in further. Thanks Gareth gareth_pollard@hotmail.com Bayside Argonauts Football Club
