Under 17's Season 2014

Dear U17s Player and Parent,

Whilst it seems that the 2013 season finished yesterday a great deal of planning for next season is required to ensure we are well prepared for season 2014. 

Ferntree Gully Eagles Junior Football Club is seeking an indication of how many players are likely to be playing next season that are eligible for the Under 17’s competition to ensure we provide opportunities for all prospective players born in 1997 or 1998.

 The appointment of suitable people for key roles such as Coach, Team Manager, Trainers etc… can only be clarified once we have a firm indication of how many teams will represent Ferntree Gully Eagles in the Under 17’s next season.

 We would like to invite you down to Wally Tew Reserve (Senior Ground) for a Sausage Sizzle at 6:00pm on Thursday 24 October, 2013. Information regarding pre season training, other information regarding possible grading options for 2014 will be shared and this meeting will provide an opportunity for you and your son to ask any questions regarding the upcoming season.

 Graham Gardiner has been appointed as coach of the Under 17 – 1 team for season 2014. As soon as we get an indication of player numbers we can further appoint our coaches and start planning for pre season and the 2014 season proper. Graham will provide a brief outline of pre-Christmas training and his expectations of any players wishing to challenge themselves in seeking a position in our highest graded side.

 Additionally, we have heard there is a bit of interest from prospective Under 17 players from other clubs in joining Ferntree Gully Eagles next season. Prospective new players are also most welcome to attend this meeting and see what they feel about the Ferntree Gully Eagles and the committee will be available to answer any questions or clarify the values of our club. 

 Please understand that this is not a firm commitment to play in 2014, but an indication of intent, to enable us to start planning and make further appointments. It is very important that we get as many players to attend as the indicative numbers will obviously affect decision making regarding teams. If you cannot attend but intend to play next season we request that you contact Graham to advise him of your availability.

I look forward to seeing you there. Please contact Graham Gardiner on 0438 260 623 or Gary Bass on 0427 338 872 for further information.


 Kind Regards

 Gary Bass

President – Ferntree Gully Eagles JFC.
