Welcome to all our new players and welcome back to everyone else.

It’s so nice to be in a position where we are able to start a full season on time despite the worldwide COVID pandemic continuing.

This year is that start of our fortieth season, something we as a league are very proud of and something I personally am very grateful to be the latest in a long line of chairmen of. We are joined this year by two new teams, West Beach Old Boys and University Orange, bringing the total teams to twenty one.

Over the closed season we have been busy trying to make our league even better. We have had discussions with West Beach Parks, Football SA and others to improve things by working more collaboratively. We have negotiated partnerships with Body Fit Physiotherapy and Glenelg Physio that mean our players and coaches are entitled to 10-20% discounts, and we have purchased a defibrillator something we have talked of doing for too long.

With the season about to start, I wish you and your team all the best. Remember we are a social league and most of us have to go to work on Mondays, and that the referees are human too. Have a great 2021, and may the best teams win.
