O35s & o45s raise funds for junior fields lighting upgrade

Recently, our o35s and o45s players held their annual pre-season football extravaganza at Mitchie, raising funds to support the lighting upgrade project on the junior fields.

Eight Mitchie o35s and o45s teams battled it out in the intra-club football competition, reminding the crowd that their skills are still as fresh as ever.

The fine display of quality ‘old school’ football created a fun atmosphere and camaraderie amongst Mitchie players, and the air was thick with oohs and ahhs from the delighted spectators witnessing skilful moves and plenty of goals.

It was great to see smiling faces from new members playing for the first time with o35s and o45s teams, some of whom had a long break from competitive football. It was also a great opportunity for our committee members to meet the players, and have a kick around in the round robin matches.

On the sidelines, some great raffle prizes were up for grabs, including portable speakers and mobile phone accessories. Thanks to everyone who donated prizes and bought tickets.

Well done all involved!

Synthetic pitch funding announcement

Mick de Brenni, Minister for Housing and Public Works, Digital Technology and Sport has confirmed funding of $500,000 for construction of a synthetic pitch at MFC. This will be in addition to $1,000,000 already committed to the project (in principle at this stage) by Brisbane City Council.

This is a very exciting announcement and when completed, the project will be a fantastic boost to the training and playing facilities at our club.

The project has been the culmination of several years of effort by previous Committee members, in particular former President Roger McIntosh. We also acknowledge the strong support over that time from Tim Mander MP - State Member for Everton. 

More details will be announced over the coming weeks as the BCC project team works with MFC to better define the project, where it will be located etc.

Great news - Telstra grant to MFC for a new water bubbler

We are delighted to announce our success in applying for a $1,200 grant from Telstra. Telstra Kids helps kids thrive in their connected world. Our Telstra Kids grant will be used to Provide a Billi Bubbler Drinking Fountain for the club. This will provide our many hundreds of junior players with access to fresh filtered cold water to fill and refill their water bottles during training and game times. Currently they either have to buy water or fill up from an antiquated trough style tap system which in the hotter months is luke warm.

Huge thanks to Nikki Webster from Telstra, who is the referrer, for applying for the funding for us. We are very excited to share in the million dollars the Telstra Foundation provides each year to help kids connect to a digital future.

Thanks Telstra!
