Trafalgar Victory FC’s Miniroos and Junior players attended their Presentation day on Saturday 1st September to cap off a successful 2018 season. Also in attendance were players families, coaches and TVFC Committee members, with more than 100 guests enjoying a morning which consisted of the presentation of medallions and banners for all U6s, U8s and U10s. Under 12’s received banners, with overall awards presented to the players player. Under 15 girls were also presented with banners.
In a tied result, the Under 12 Players Player award was shared by Zane Saltnes and Logan Fascio. Voted on by their peers, both boys were recognised for their outstanding seasons. Coach Templar Hankinson shared the thoughts of the playing group, saying “the development of both players, their dedication to training and commitment to the team made them deserving joint winners of the award. Well done to both boys, also to their team mates for what has been a season where improvement in several areas was obvious. I’m incredibly proud of the comradery and dedication of the entire group”.
This year TVFC also formally recognised the contribution of their coaches by presenting each coach with an engraved glass acknowledging their outstanding efforts developing the miniroos and junior squads in season 2018. All teams also presented their coaches with a world cup soccer ball signed by each player as a memento of their commitment and dedication.
Speaking on behalf o the Committee, TVFC President Lachie Wyatt is quoted as saying “our Mini and Junior teams were blessed with committed, experienced and supportive coaches this season. As a result, all teams improved enormously and most importantly, players were able to create strong friendships and have fun playing this great game. We recognise our role in developing the game whilst encouraging our youngest players to have fun every time they take the field, whether it be for training or games. We’re incredibly proud of our culture and people – which in many ways is driven by the coaches. We must also make special mention of our parents who are a wonderfully supportive group of people. Their encouragement of the kids each and every week was inspiring”
