Dear members, friends, and families of West Adelaide SC,
I cannot believe we’re already close to halfway through 2023. The month of June marks a significant milestone for myself – 6 months since assuming the privilege of being elected Chairman of our Club.
It’s been a testing period with a lot to navigate however I’m happy to share that we’ve been working closely with the Office of Recreation, Sport & Racing, and have engaged Tandem Building Group to assist with getting the Kilburn Sportsplex ready for games. We’re close to works commencing, which I’m sure is music to the ears of everyone involved, and although we expect works to conclude in late 2023, the plan is to launch in round 1 of next season.
We’ve been working tirelessly to secure the future of the Club and have signed numerous sponsorships including long-standing Major Sponsor, Distinctive Homes, Platinum Sponsors PMN Lawyers and IP Partners, plus Club Sponsors Fielders, Triple M, Strangio, Dowell, CXT Legal & Terry White Chemist (West Lakes). Our thanks go to all sponsors, it’s this support that will make us sustainable for the future.
From a digital perspective we’ve made strides forward with updating our website, the introduction of a gameday guide, and engaging social media content. Be sure to follow us on social media as there are plenty of fantastic prizes to be won.
Our junior program has gone from strength to strength since the addition of Technical Directors Adilson Lopes and Yianni Stamatelopoulos. Their ability to ‘coach the coaches’ has been a revelation and we’ll be releasing a long-term strategy document detailing what’s in store for the juniors in the coming months. Kudos to our Junior President Anthony Kalogerinis and all the volunteers at B27 for their efforts this year. With Adelaide City Council stalling our development plans, we need your voice now more than ever. If everyone could spare 5 minutes and complete the online form, every voice counts!
After a tremendous first half of the season, the Senior Team has had the unfortunate luck of several starting players falling to injury. Results have not gone our way however Jim and the entire team are united, and the camaraderie and culture that has been built will hold us in good stead. Good luck to all teams for the remainder of the season and shoutout to the supporters group ‘The ‘78’. The atmosphere you’ve created at our games, both home & away, has been fantastic and it brings back many childhood memories of my friends and I supporting the Club at
Hindmarsh. Keep it going!
Here’s to a successful second half of 2023 both on and off the pitch and be sure to keep an eye out for our newsletter which will feature on a bi-monthly basis. The future of West Adelaide is bright and I for one cannot wait to see what unfolds.
