Redbacks season review Sep 9, 2021 | General, Yass Valley | On Tuesday, came the expected announcement from Capital Football that the winter soccer season season is over. It’s incredibly disappointi...
Congratulations to Amanda Eccleston from the Lady Redbacks for 100 games with Yass FC! Eccie first played for YassFC in 2012 and celebrated her 100th & 101st game last weekend in Canberra playing both DIV6 & DIV4! ⚽️⚽️⚽️
Just made it Eccie ! 🙂 And currently TOP goal scorer for the DIV6 Redbacks.
To the Yass Redbacks Community, Our immediate reaction to the annoucement of the ACT 7 Day lock down period was to reach out to Capital Football to ask if our U5-U7 games could go ahead and could we potentially play intra-club games to perhaps make up for those games lost to washouts this year. While we were waiting for their response, the situation has escalated with the NSW Health advised that visitors to the ACT since 5th August should adhere to stay at home orders. As you can imagine this has impacted a significant number of our players and community as a large number of us played in Canberra over the weekend. In addition to this we are aware that many of our parents work in Canberra and some of our players go to school there. We have received confirmation from Capital Footabll that we could go ahead with games and training at Walker Park under the current NSW guidelines. However the Club has made the decision that in the best interests of keeping the larger Yass community safe and healthy we will NOT go ahead with any organised games this Saturday at Walker Park. We regret having to make this decision but we feel that it is in the best interests of all involved at this time. We will be having further discussions about training and a decision will be made on Monday morning in regard to this. Thank you for your continued support in these difficult times.
