Trafalgar Victory Under 12s played a great game of football against Churchill United in their round 10 match last weekend. Both teams played with great effort but Trafalgar was too strong overall, ending up winning the contest 5 goals to 2.
Match awards for Trafalgar went to Jai for displaying some impressive finishing skills in front of goal and Sophia for her determination and commitment in defence and midfield. Go Traf!

Trafalgar Victory U12s showed a lot of heart in their round 9 match against Traralgon City Black this weekend. Traralgon City comprehensively won the game 12 to nil, but the Trafalgar team can be proud of their outstanding effort and great attitude all match.
The game was actually much closer than the scoreline suggested and it was great to see Trafalgar trying hard right until the end. Trafalgar player of the match award was won by Yelan for some outstanding goalkeeping. Most improved player award went to Mitchell for his determination in defence and displaying some excellent throw in skills. Special mention to Mackenzie for showing great resilience by coming back on in second half to help out her team mates after bravely shrugging off an earlier injury. Keep up the great attitude Traf!

Trafalgar Victory Under 12s continued their current winning streak with a solid performance against Tyers Gold at Trafalgar today. After a very even first half, the scores were locked at 1 all. Trafalgar then came home very strongly in the second half scoring an additional 3 goals to seal the win 4 – 1.
Once again it was a great effort by all of the kids. Trafalgar played particularly good soccer in the second half where they combined brilliantly as a team. Some excellent passing by the whole team setup many shots on goal. The Trafalgar defence were particularly awesome in the second half, when Tyers found it virtually impossible to get a shot on goal.
Special mention goes to goal keeper Yelan who made one of the saves of the season in the first half. His big dive to his right with an outstretched hand prevented an otherwise certain goal. Well done Yelan and great game Traf!

Several weeks ago representatives from Trafalgar Victory FC met with the Trafalgar & District Community Bank, Branch Manager, Phil Drummond, to discuss the potential sponsorship of the club’s senior alternative clash strip. The meeting went well and the club was encouraged to submit a sponsorship application.
Whilst the sponsorship application was being considered, TVFC met with KonQa to design a brand new clash strip. The design was approved by the TVFC committee and the Latrobe Valley Soccer League gave it the stamp of approval. Earlier this month the Trafalgar & District Community Bank wrote to the club confirming that our sponsorship application had been successful.
TVFC is extremely grateful for the financial assistance provided by the Trafalgar & District Community Bank. The club is delighted with the new KonQa design and the senior men, senor women and men’s reserves teams cannot wait to proudly wear the new kit during the second half of the season. This is yet another example of how the local community bank has offered its support to a local community sports club. This is also yet another example of how TVFC is providing its members with a quality football experience.
TVFC banks with the Trafalgar & District Community Bank and as a club we encourages all our members to consider the financial services and products they offer.
Some of the funds raised in the recent TVFC Mother’s Day raffle has been invested in the purchase of training and game day equipment for TVFC Junior and MiniRoos teams. It is the support of our members of such fundraising initiatives that provide quality equipment for our players.
The new items include:
- 16 Sized 4 Nike Strike training balls and bag for the Under 10 MiniRoos
- 16 sized 4 Nike Strike training balls and bag for the Under 12 Juniors
- 90 Zenith cones for TVFC MiniRoos gala days
- 4 six foot round Porta Gols pop up goals for TVFC MiniRoos gala days
It is hoped that top notch trainig equipment, matched by FFA approved coaches will fast track the development of our juniors and miniroos. These purchases are yet another example of how TVFC are providing a quality football experience for our members.
The TVFC 2019 Mother’s Day Raffle, proudly sponsored by Harvey Normal Electrical Warragul , was drawn on Sunday the 12th of May at the conclusion of the Trafalgar Victory V Fortuna 60 senior match. The winner of the raffle was Eva Istraty, who is the sister of TVFC MiniRoos Under 10 player Anton Istraty. Congratulations Eva, I hope you are able to share some of your winnings with your mother.
Trafalgar Victory FC would like to thank Harvery Normal Electrical Warragul, for their generous sponsorship of the Mother’s Day raffle. The club would also like to thank TVFC Treasurer, Raelene Brace, for her coordination of ticket sales which raised just under $1200 for the club. Finally, the club would like to thank its members for both selling and purchasing tickets.
If you didn’t win this time around, you can always try again at our Fathers Day raffle later in September. Thank you one and all for supporting your club’s fundraising initiatives.
The entire Trafalgar Victory FC family sends its sincere condolences to the family of the late Mr Bill Sampson, aged 62 years.
Bill was a much loved member of the TVFC community. His enthusiasm, energy and genuine love of the club was evident for all to see and contributed immensely to the warmth of our club. Bill was an extremely active and enthusiastic club person, who loved nothing better than watching and supporting his kids as they played on a Saturday. During his time at the club, Bill helped out in many different ways and via numerous roles. He was an excellent and very efficient team manager, he organised numerous grants for the club (many of which where through his work at Telstra), he was a dedicated volunteer, he was a committee member and held the position of club Vice President.
Bill would often say how much he loved the sport, making statements like “How good is this game?”. He encouraged all players at the club, whether they played for the state or could barely kick a ball. Working along side the likes of Stephen Klemke and Warren Steen, Bill ensured that the TVFC junior teams were not only successful, but an excellent social opportunity for the youth of Trafalgar to enjoy.
Bill has left a great impression upon many TVFC players, volunteers and families. He will be greatly missed. All at Trafalgar Victory FC will keep Jenny, James, Jack, Tom and Laura in their thoughts and prayers.
After playing some tough opposition the last few weeks, the TVFC Under 12s made a big impact on the scorecard this week, with a resounding 12 to nil victory over Monash. The whole team supported each other extremely well all game. Everyone made a great contribution for the entire match, with a total of seven seperate Trafalgar players able to put the ball into the back of the net today. It was smiles and high fives all around!
Special mention goes out to Lara O’Donnell who played her first ever game of soccer today. She did an awesome job in defence all game and played with impressive confidence, making some great tackles. We look forward to her playing many more games for TVFC this season and into the future.
Goalkeepers Yelan and Jai also deserve mention for maintaining concentration and enthusiasm all game, despite the cold, drizzly conditions. Well done boys!
It is pleasing to see the way the team is working together so well and continually improving each week. All the hard work done by Shirley and the kids at training each week is clearly starting to pay off. Keep up the great effort and awesome attitude kids!
Match report by Andre, team manager.
The kids played really well and MacKenzie scored a fantastic goal. Jai won the Round 4 ‘Encouragement’ medallion for his awesome goal keeping. Jaxson won the BK’s award for his hard, consistent work of right full back.
