Dear TVFC Players, Parents & Members,
We write to inform you that as of this morning, Trafalgar Victory FC has written to seek affiliation with Gippsland Soccer League and notified its current body, the Latrobe Valley Soccer League of its intention to withdraw from all LVSL competitions.
Over the past 8 years, TVFC has experienced considerable growth in areas on and off the pitch upon relocating to our current facility at Waterloo Road, in more recent times we have been investing considerable time and energy into procuring improved infrastructure and facilities that will better support our club.
The decision to change leagues has been one of careful consideration, and one that we feel as a committee will best support the sustained growth of TVFC. We have been embedded in the LVSL since its inception, with club delegates holding executive board roles and supporting the development and growth of the leagues administration for some years. However, we feel that our best future endeavours now lie within the Gippsland Soccer League.
Trafalgar and surrounds are growing communities, competing with significantly larger clubs in the main townships of Moe, Morwell and Traralgon and the clubs current status of being without appropriate facilities has made it increasingly challenging to maintain a healthy player base across all age groups which we must make a priority.
The Gippsland Soccer League is a fast growing, friendly, family based competition with values aligned perfectly to that of TVFC. We have been involved in the GSL in previous seasons with considerable success and we are excited and energised to see our junior and senior teams compete together on the same competition day and increase whole club involvement.
The TVFC Committee will continue to work towards recognising an established, built for purpose changing facility that provides appropriate solutions to our male and female players across all ages, whilst being able to manage this alongside building our player base in a growing, exciting competition.
TVFC would like to thank the LVSL for its support and understanding of our decision, with recognition that the LVSL season commences in one short week.
There will be more information to follow shortly regarding the clubs next steps seeking affiliation with the GSL, competition information and everything else you need to know.
