SUMMER FOOTBALL UPDATE

Good afternoon 


With this note I like to provide an update how our club is managing the 'smoked out' games of the past week and what we discussed with Campbelltown Council and Football NSW.

With tomorrows (Tuesday 10/12/2019) hot weather and poor air quality forecast, we have taken the decision not to play tomorrow and add tomorrows scheduled games to the re-schedule. All games have been updated on the Game Day app by SportsTG. If you do not have the app, you can also access the information here: http://websites.sportstg.com/assoc_page.cgi?c=1-9869-0-500154-0&a=COMPS

The below is our current plan based on current weather forecast for Campbelltown. This may change, pending weather and air quality levels though, so please check with us regularly via our website, Game day app and Facebook.

Games from last week:
Tuesday 3rd December - rescheduled now Tuesday 17th December (not 10th December)
Wednesday 4th December - rescheduled now Wednesday 11th December
Thursday 5th December - rescheduled now Thursday 12th December

Some of the above games will be the last for some teams like Minis and teams who do not have further rounds scheduled. Santa will make an appearance on Thursday this week and Tuesday next week if weather and air quality permits.

Games originally schedule for this and next week:
Tuesday 10th December - rescheduled now 14th January 2020
Thursday 12th December - rescheduled now 16th January 2020
Tuesday 17th December - rescheduled now 21st January 2020
Thursday 19th December - rescheduled now 23rd January 2020

We appreciate that this may cause inconveniences to some of our summer football participants and our supporters. Even the organising committee had other plans for January, however we felt that offering the new dates provides a better alternative than to cancel whole rounds as we would not have been able to fit in all games this side of Christmas particularly with the uncertainty of the air quality still looming over us. 

As always, if your team is not able to field a side, please email [email protected] so we can inform your opposing team of the game cancellation.

We will post the following on Facebook and email our participants very shortly and we trust your understanding that this was done with the best possibly intentions given the burning fires in the greater Sydney catchment area.
Kind regards
Ralf
President EPFC

THURSDAY 21/11 SUMMER COMPETITION GAMES POSTPONED

Football NSW strongly recommends that all football activities that are due to take place on Thursday 21 November 2019 in affected areas are postponed or cancelled for the health and safety of all participants.  

Our club continues to monitor air quality levels and fire risks in our area and carefully consider whether football activities should proceed this week.  Please keep in mind that wind and fire directions can change quickly and while conditions may appear suitable earlier in the day, they can be quite different by the time games are due to start or when it ends and participants have to make their way home .

People from sensitive groups such as those with asthma, heart or lung disease, children and older adults should consider avoiding all outdoor activities for today.

We will reschedule all games from today to Wednesday 4th December at the same time and fields, meaning if the weather permits, the make up round from today will be followed by a Thursday round in the same week.

Players and spectator safety is front of mind in coming to the conclusion to postpone today's matches. So please check our website and facebook regularly

Stay safe and hydrated, yours in football

What is our goal

Eschol Park Football Club was officially formed in 1983 (as Eschol Park Soccer Club) and has been a proud member of the Macarthur Football Association since that time.   The club was setup to provide a safe place for the local children to go and play soccer.   This has been achieved and is proudly maintained by the ongoing committee, testament to our success is the number of past members who are now bringing their children back to play at the club.   Our club participates in the Macarthur Football Association winter competition, hosting players in all age group competitions from Under 6 to Over 35.   We also host our own summer competition with competitions for Under 6 Mixed, Under 7 Mixed, Under 8/9 Mixed, Under 10/11 Mixed, Under 12/13 Boys, Under 12/13 Girls, Under 14/15 Boys, Under 14/15 Girls, Under 16/17 Boys, Under 16/17 Girls, All Age Mens, All Age Ladies and All Age Mixed.   Why not give Football a go this year, come and join a great family club!
