On the last weekend in May OJFC had many teams participating in the Wynton Rufer Tournament and there were plenty of successes, goals and smiles at the event. Please visit the Tournaments page and Photos page for more info.
The OJFC hoodies are back up on the Football Central Onslow club shop page and available for people to pre-order for the next two weeks.
This is the last order window for the season.
PLEASE NOTE: Football Central had some trouble sourcing size 6-8 hoodies ordered in the last window. The supplier completely ran out of stock and they are chasing them for more.
Onslow players from the 10th Grade teams – Gurkhas, Tarikakas, Hindipurs and Ravis were ball kids for the North Wellington Senior Men’s First Team in their Wellington Capital Premier League fixture against Wellington Olympic on April 17th. The boys are holding up 6 fingers which represents the number of goals which North Wellington scored to win 6-1.
The players and club were really responsive, engaging with the kids, and the kids enjoyed it.
A full list of rule changes for 2017 season can be found here, but some of the more important ones to note are:
The kick-off can now go backwards.
The Offside law – the free-kick is now taken from where the offence of offside took place, so the interfering in play, rather from the offside position – referees will understand what that means.
Undershorts/tights must be the same colour as the main colour of the shorts or the lowest part of the shorts. This takes into account shorts with a different coloured hem. Undershirts must still be the same colour as the main colour of the shirt sleeve. Any tape or other material on or covering socks must be the same colour as the sock.
There is a Coaches briefing on Thursday 23rd March 2017 at the Khandallah Town Hall. It starts at 7.30 pm and runs for about 1 and half hours.
This is for coaches from grade 9 to 14. We are keen for all coaches to attend.
