                                  2015 SEASON RECAP        

Well the 2015 season has come to an end with the final catch up games being completed this past weekend.

Congratulations to coach Brett Dennis and his 12th Grade Jedis, undefeated with a perfect record they were the only team in the club to win its league. A special mention to the 13th Grade Red Sox (2nd) and the Womens div 4 Rookies (3rd) in their respective leagues. The club also had four other teams finish 4th in their divisions. Three teams finishing 5th, one of these being the First Team who ended the season with 8 wins in a row. Bring on 2016!

In all a fairly satisfying season for OMU.

A huge THANK-YOU from the club to all Coaches, Managers, Parents, Relatives & of course the Players who turned out week in, week out to make the experience enjoyable for all concerned.

                              1ST TEAM NOTIFICATION

The club would like to regrettably notify members that First Team Coach Mark O'Donnell has resigned from coaching duties effective immediately due to work commitments. Assistant Nick Russo will be teaming up with Warren Parke as Co-Coaches with Ben Murphy assisting and Kurt Rains taking on the Managerial role.

The club would like to welcome Warren to the club and wish the new coaching staff all the best for the rest of the season.

Mark's departing statement;

"There have been many highs and a few lows at Onehunga Mangere. To every single player who has worn the OM shirt I say thank you personally. To the committee and spectators I also owe a debt of gratitude. There are only 36 individuals who every week bear the mantle of a First Team NRFL coach. To have had that honour and privilege for over 10 seasons has been an absolute thrill. I have loved every single minute of banter, coaching and cajoling players, officials and even opposition. There are 12 games left for Onehunga Mangere to retain their NRFL status. I am confident the next chapter in the club’s history will be a great one and wish everyone success and a winning attitude. Finally if I could sum up my 80 plus games coaching at OM I would end by paraphrasing Francis Albert Sinatra “The record shows I took the blows and did it my way!”.

Yours in Football (the greatest game ever) Mark Edward James O’Donnell

We all wish Mark the best in his future endeavours and hope to see him at games and in the clubroom in the future.

                         7th & 8th GRADE NOTIFICATION

Hi Coaches,

I'm sure like me you are looking forward to the season's start and seeing our kids have fun and make improvements as the season progresses.  We are just over 3 weeks away from the start of our football season and if you haven't started your team training sessions now would be the time to get a training session organised for your team.  Swanson park is still unavailable so all teams are having to work in together up the mountain until alternative fields and facilities can be found.  As you are aware we have started running training sessions for any 7th grade and 8th grade players on Monday afternoons and 9th Grade on a Tuesday afternoons.  We are taking a break for the school holidays but will commence again starting term 2, Monday afternoon.  These sessions are an extra for your players to do on top of your team training as most teams are only training once a week.  We want to try and get our players to have at least two training contacts of 45min-1hr each week and a match day.  The sessions are here for the players enjoyment so make them aware of the availability.
Just a couple of things to keep in mind when designing and running your team training sessions 
We are working with children in the discovery phase of their football development.  The key thing to keep in mind is we are trying to allow the players to discover a love for the game through trial and error rather than coaching.  Organising fun football exercises replicating the 'street/park football'.
Session Tips
  • Plan your session.  I spend 15 minutes prior to each session to write down a plan.  The resources from your pack have great fun games to incorporate into your session plan
  • Arrive early and set up the area 
  • Give clear, short instructions
  • Demonstrate quickly and efficiently
  • Vary the activities but keep it simple
  • Be enthusiastic and give lots of praise
  • Encourage after mistakes
  • Be patient
  • Have fun (both the kids and you!)
  • Keep everyone active, avoid having kids standing around (lines of kids).  If the kids are running around and touching the ball you are doing a great job.  If they are standing around listening to a coach talk then it needs to be short 
About Our kids
  • Are still clumsy and still developing their co ordination
  • They have short attention spans and are easily and quickly distracted
  • Are 'self-centred' and not yet ready to work together (so don't ask them to perform team play, it is impossible for them!)
  • They play or participate for fun with short bursts of energy and enthusiasm
  • They are unable to handle large amounts of information (instructions; feedback)
Please email me back if you need any help with planning or running your training sessions.

Junior/Youth Development Officer

                                     CLUBROOM NOTICE


At the Management meeting Tuesday night the issue of toy’s and ball play in the club rooms was discussed.

Due to health and safety issues involved with both these practices the decision has been made to not allow the toys that have become a feature of the corner of the club rooms and inevitably spread over and left over the floor to be removed and not to be returned or replaced and the immediate quashing of all ball play within the club rooms.

This will need to be policed to a certain extent by your code committees and members, your assistance would be appreciated please.

We are open to any suggestions to help keep the kids amused etc. while in the club rooms but the above have become issues with members and visitors comments over time and need to be acted on.

OMUAFC are excited to announce the introduction of a Junior (9-13 year old) and Youth (14-17 year old) Coaching Development Officer with the goal being to build and implement a program to develop the younger players within our club.


The key roles of this position will include:

  1. To mentor, guide and monitor our Junior and Youth team coaches
  2. To implement free play days at the club which will allow our kids more opportunity to touch the football
  3. To implement a club academy for all players by catering for those players wanting extra development
  4. To develop a 4 year training plan and oversee team annual training plans

This program will be run by Hoani Edwards.  Hoani holds his New Zealand Football Level 2 coaching badge and a Football Federation Australia ‘C’ Licence.  He has been involved in competitive level soccer in NZ for the last 25 years.  He is a current senior premier league coach, premier league school first XI coach and director of football.  But the most enjoyment in his coaching comes from his son’s 6th grade team where he has seen huge improvement in the kids.  Hoani is a Mangere Bridge resident and is looking forward to helping the players and club achieve their goals.
