The AGM last week was a small and friendly affair as usual. News from the
|Life membership was bestowed upon Tony Reed. Tony is|
well known to junior players and their parents. Tony has contributed
strongly to the Club for the last ten years. He runs junior grading and
training field allocation for the Club. Tony is also active at the District level being one of the Club’s CDSFA delegates; he sits on the mini grading committee and was instrumental in the early uptake of small sided games by our Club and the Association. Tony is well deserving of this honour. Congratulations Tony!
|A new category was created this year through which we can celebrate a person who is not a member of the Club, yet has contributed greatly.|
Coaching Director Tom Alexakis was named Club
Patron for services to Leichhardt Saints Football Club. Tom is a very highly accredited coach, and yet year after year he dedicates himself to Leichhardt Saints Football Club, teams and players, alongside his work with international teams including the Thai national team and English Premier League team Wolverhampton Wanderers. Congratulations Tom, it’s an honour having you work with us.
To everybody’s sadness, our longest serving President,
Liam Griffith has stepped away from the president’s role, in favour of a well-deserved break. The Club enjoyed a golden period characterised by stability, harmony and growth under Liam’s presidency.
Unfortunately our General member/Merchandising OfficerRafael Chemke and General Member Sam Cosentino will not serve on the committee in 2014. We thank Raf and Sam for their contribution. Although no longer on the committee, both will be around lending a hand in many and various ways.
We are excited to welcome a new Equipment Officer Stewart Marsden. Stewart is a parent and coach in the U9 age group and brings a wealth of enthusiasm and ideas to the position. b>Rosalina Rees has come on board as the Assistant Secretary. Rosalina has a son in the U6/U7 age group. Ben Kisny Gordon has taken up a General member’s position. Ben plays in an all age men’s team. We are very excited to have these new connections to a broad cross section of our teams.
While continuing to set records with the President’s position, we welcome our first female President Liza Schaeper. I have moved across from the Secretary’s position to provide Liam his well-deserved break and carry on the good work of Liam and the outgoing committee.
