Gregory Hills FC: Bigger and Better in 2021
With the 2021 Macarthur Football Association Competition kicking off this month, local club Gregory Hills FC are going from strength to strength, doubling in size in only their second year of playing. The new season will see over 300 registered players coming together to form a massive 31 teams.
Despite COVID and all the additional restrictions that 2020’s season brought with it, Gregory Hills FC players were excited to get out on the field and play in their inaugural year.
“The enthusiasm that parents had to share their children’s success and highlights from each game last year was amazing. This was shown through the photos and updates we would receive each week” explained Renato Cocchietto, President of Gregory Hills FC.
“The family and community spirit within the club was inspiring. Teams that played away would always come and find me to tell me about their successes and highlights. In particular, our Under 9 Girls, who at the start of the season lost all their games, however by mid-season they were able to achieve a win” Renato added.
This season, the club has doubled in size. They have over 16 teams alone just in the Under 6’s and Under 7’s. The all-girl’s teams have grown from 2 last year to 6. There are some mixed teams, an Under 13 Youth team and an Over 35’s team.
“I am looking forward to seeing all our new players and teams get out and enjoy the game” smiled Renato.
Most importantly, the club would like to thank the community for all their support in their first year.
“We as a club have been overwhelmed with how supportive our local community has been for a new club, especially during such hard times as COVID. Despite this, all our sponsors have come back this year. The community spirit has allowed us to grow. We are truly thankful” said Renato to the Oran Park Gazette.
Gregory Hills FC welcome any potential new sponsors. The more sponsorship support they get, the more equipment they have to support their players.
