Press Release – Alamein Football Club / Ashburton United Soccer Club

Soccer Clubs welcome Boroondara Council decision on Dorothy Laver playing fields

j0424308Ashburton-based soccer clubs, Ashburton United Soccer Club and Alamein Football Club, welcome the decision this week by Boroondara Council to establish a soccer focussed facility at Dorothy Laver Reserve West with two full sized fields and all-year round access.

The clubs acknowledge that this has been a long-sought outcome for the soccer community in Boroondara which has grown rapidly over the last few years. There are now some 3000 girls and boys, men and women playing for Boroondara soccer clubs, and around two-thirds of whom live in Boroondara. A further 1000 plus Boroondara residents play for clubs outside Boroondara and it is hoped the new facility will attract them to play for local soccer clubs.

Both clubs thanked the Boroondara Council and its officers for their leadership and endorsement of the needs of community-based football which is becoming an all-year round sport.

The clubs particularly welcomed the decision of Council to prioritise juniors, girls and women, indigenous and players with disabilities.

“Having just lost the girls football centre at Batesford Reserve in Monash, this will mean our girls and women will have a new community football home as will our planned team for players with disabilities”, said Ashburton President Bob Stensholt.

Bill Gaganis, President of Alamein Football Club said “As one of the few female-only soccer clubs in Victoria, we are delighted that there will be a new home for girls and women to play both for enjoyment as well as to achieve their best at the highest level.”

Alamein FC signs three of the best from Galaxy United

Jess Tay Anita Komijat Akeisha Sandhu

Alamein FC has signed three of the best NPLW players for the 2019 season.

Alamein FC would like to proudly announce the signing of  Jess Tay, Aneta Komijat and Akeisha Sandhu from Galaxy United for the 2019 NPLW season.

Jess (@jess_tay10 ) is a leader and unrelenting defender who captained Galaxy United and brings a wealth of experience to our squad. Jess began her WPL with the Bulleen Lions, where she spent two full seasons with the club under Bobby McGuinness before eventually making the move to the 2015 Minor Premiers, Bulleen Lions.

Aneta comes to Alamein after two seasons with Geelong Galaxy. Anita (@aneta_hajduk) has a depth of experience with WPL clubs Altona, Cairnlea and Heidelberg before joining Galaxy in 2016. The talented winger "has the ability to beat players 1v1"  and is a great reader of the game.

Akeisha joins her fellow team mates from Galaxy United Jess and Aneta to bolster up our defensive third for next season. Having caused problems for our strikers last season we’re now hoping that she now provides a serious problem to other teams next season. Akeisha is and NTC graduate and has represented both Country New South Wales and Victoria at the National Championships.
