Congratulations to Sione Fa'apoi who has been selected in the NZ Boys U17 squad to play in the Oceania Football Confederation World Cup qualifying tournament in January 2015. The winner of this tournament will go to Chile in October for the U17 World Cup.

Sione started at Fencibles as a Junior and has worked his way through the grades. In 2014 Sione played U19, Senior Reserves and broke into the Senior First team late in the season.

The start of something ….. please take the time to read this. 7/11/14

To all members,

The main reason I am humbled and honoured to have been elected this week as the new Chairman of our fantastic club is because of the opportunity to make a difference.

Football is the greatest sport in the world and many thousands of volunteer hours from many passionate people in our club have shaped our history, so the privilege and responsibility of Chairman is something I take very seriously. 

Our club is a sleeping giant and we are currently working on finalising the plan to deliver significant change in many areas, on and off the pitch. We will communicate the plan and keep you up to date with the short and long term priorities and share our values and key objectives. We will also ask for your feedback, ideas and expertise in our new sub-committee structure. Whilst we will have specific objectives and targets for different sections in our club it is important that we have a meaningful, inspiring and club wide purpose and vision. Something like this potentially - “To make a positive difference in the lives of all club members through football experiences and to be a vital hub in our community”

I intend to earn respect through sincerity, humility and a collaborative approach to my role and leadership, ensuring our strategy and decision making reflects the very best interests of the club and all its members.  The Committee are experienced and passionate and I thank them sincerely for their commitment to Fencibles for 2015. Thank you to 1st Cloud Data Storage, PaknSave Botany, McDonalds, Lotto, Pegasus and all our other sponsors. These partnerships help to build a very important foundation.

I recently refereed a match at William Green Domain between our Under 19 team that were preparing for the Labour weekend Napier tournament. I said the following to the 2 captains prior to kick off to be clear with my expectations and I was surprised at the response from both young captains. I asked them to play hard but fair, to respect my decisions, (the right and wrong ones) and that I would not tolerate foul language. Our captain looked me in the eye with a clear and obvious respect. The opposition captain laughed and mumbled something under his breath…

In my opinion, respect makes the world a better place and I see many great examples of it in our club. As the Committee takes on all the challenges ahead please trust that we will make the best possible decisions. Respect us if we get it wrong or you don’t agree with or understand our decision or direction. Most importantly, respect each other. Every member is a valued member of our club and every member wants something different from Fencibles. If we get all of this right we will achieve something very special, extraordinary results on and off the pitch and truly make a difference.

If you have any questions or suggestions please email me at this address - chairman@fencibles.org.nz

Thank you for your time

Paul Burns

Chairman

Fencibles United AFC

McDonald's Skills Zone

McDonald’s have supported junior football around the country through the McDonald’s Skill Zone. At Fencibles United AFC, it's been fantastic to hear from a significant number of coaches that have implemented this program across many junior and youth teams. Coaches have found the program both easy to manage and rewarding to the skill base of their players. Kids have enjoyed it too, as they aim to complete skill challenges to earn Bronze, Silver and Gold sticker awards, resulting in another certificate to proudly pin to their bedroom wall.

 

 

 

Congratulations to those of you that have taken part in the Skills Zone program and we hope it has been another enjoyable component of your football experience at Fencibles United AFC during the 2014 season. For more information on the McDonald's Skills Zone program, please check out the links below.

2013 Chairmans Report and Role of Honour Updated 08/01/2014

Please click on the links below to read the 2013 Chairman's report presented at the AGM held earlier in December and the 2013 Role of Honour listing our players and teams that achieve higher honours during the last season.

Chairmans Report     Role of Honour

 

AGM 2013 Monday December 9th

The Annual General Meeting for 2013 was held on Monday 9th December 7.30pm at the Riverhills Park Club Rooms.

Thank you to those members who took the time to come and review the past season and contribute to the future direction of the club.

Robust debate was had on a number of matters and many good suggestions were made from the floor which the new committee will take on board as we move into planning for the new season and beyond.

The committee is always open to new ideas and very keen to have more members contribute to the successful running of the club. Please do not hesitate to contact anyone on the committee or a section club captain if you have a suggestion that will assist the club to run more successfully from a football or financial perspective, however we may also need your help and expertise to implement as the committee is often bogged down with day to day issues that arise.

The 2014 season is going to be exciting for the club with the first full year of utilising our Director of Coaching Roger Wilkinson and the new William Green facility. Planning is already underway as to how we best get support out to our volunteer coaches in 2014, which in turn will help all members in their development as footballers.

Have a safe holiday break and we look forward to seeing you all in 2014.
