U19s Club Announcement

The BFNC Committee and Coaches are excited to announce we will endeavour to field a 2nd Under 19s team in 2020.

With an exciting and growing current Under 19’s playing list, we believe having 2 teams is critical for the following reasons:

• Ensuring each player on our list is given equal opportunity to develop their football by maximising game time opportunity.

• To provide the resources required to meet the needs of our exciting, young list.

• To provide the opportunity for players within our club and community who struggle to meet the commitment requirements of football the opportunity to continue playing our great game.

This is not a matter of having 2 separate teams but ONE Under 19’s program/squad. Training will be all together with players having the ability to move between teams (subject to selection and SFNL by-laws criteria)

The Teams will be named Bentleigh Red and Bentleigh Blue.

We are pleased to announce Paul Nankervis has been appointed Coach, with further announcements to come.

Furthermore, a great opportunity also for more parents, friends and family members to get involved in our great sporting club. There is so many current voluntary positions available throughout the whole club.
