I hope everyone’s season has been going well. Unfortunately we are nearing the end of the season so here are a few reminders.
Team photo’s are on Monday 28th July. Your coach/manager has been emailed a list with your teams time. Please ask them if they haven’t already told you. There is no cost for the photo as it was included in the price when you paid your fees.
Our end of season Prize giving will be held on Friday 12th September. So please keep this date free.
If your child has received player of the day but couldn’t make it to the Saturday Prize Giving to receive their certificate, not to worry. We don’t throw them away. You can collect them from Suzanne Waddell.
One last thing, please remember we are there to support our children and to make sure they have fun while playing football. We want them to grow and be future All Whites. This will not happen if supporters are not using positive encouragement on the side line. Unfortunately I have heard some very negative comments from opposing teams. I’m sure this does not happen at OM, but this is just a friendly reminder to always support our children with positive encouragement.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ring me.
WORLD CUP FINAL BREAKFAST
The club would like to thank everyoone who turned up early Monday morning to watch an entertaining game of football. Congrats to the lucky door prize winners - Rachel who took away an All Whites Away Shirt and Winston who collected a Netherlands Away shirt. Both shirts were gratefully donated by our friends at NIKE.
As well as Nike we can't forget Dave Thomson and John Wright for thankfully donating food for the event and Bridget Stewart at Pen & Paper.
A very special thanks to Hilary Osborne who put on a fantastic spread to cater to everyone's needs and was ably assisted by Marc Lindsay in the kitchen and we cant forget our able barman for the morning Bruce Loftus.
Hopefully we will look to run a morning for the 2016 European Champs but definitely will be back in four years time when the World Cup heads to Russia.

DEDICATED VOLUNTEERS HONOURED
The medals were presented by Auckland Football board chairman Stephen Williamson at a function held at Onehunga Mangere United AFC’s Mangere Domain clubrooms honouring the outstanding efforts of; Paula Seibert (Onehunga Mangere Utd AFC), Helen Keegan (Otahuhu Utd AFC), Brian Stanyer (Mt Albert-Ponsonby AFC), Paul Mason (AFF Referees), Rick de Vries (Bay Olympic), Wayne Jensen (Manurewa AFC), Debbie Apanui (Bay Olympic), Robbie Cardwell (Otahuhu Utd AFC), Maylene Featherstone (Beachlands Maraetai AFC) and Kris McGregor (Bay Olympic).
Auckland Football CEO David Parker says Tuesday’s group of medallists serves as the latest example of the wonderful dedication shown by the people who make grassroots football possible.
“Our latest group of Long Service Medallists once again reminds us of the tremendous impact our passionate volunteers have on our game,” Parker said.
“Quite simply; without them we would not be able to function.
“The back stories of the individuals described on Tuesday are truly remarkable and, on behalf of everyone connected to the game in Auckland, I thank our latest group of medallists for their on-going contribution to our sport."
With Tuesday’s 10 recipients, the total number of volunteers honoured since the Auckland Football Long Service Medal was instituted in 2008 now stands at 67.
Congratulations go out to our own Paula Siebert who was one of the 10 recipients.
Paula has been associated with her club, Onehunga Mangere Utd AFC, for an impressive span of over 15 years.
A member of the Onehunga Mangere Utd AFC committee, she is always offering her services without hesitation, be it organising tournament days at the club, playing and managing the women's "Dunks” team or filling in when required behind the club bar.
Paula has been involved with the club’s Management Committee, who look after the actual running of the Onehunga Mangere Sports Club and she is also involved with the Onehunga Mangere United softball code, which is part of the club.
