New look for Onslow

You will notice a new look for Onslow players on the football fields in the coming weeks.

We are in the process of rolling out new playing jerseys to approximately half our teams this season, as a lot of our current ones are past their best.  Due to the size of our club we are unable to provide jerseys for every team this year but will look to replace most teams playing strips over the next few seasons.

If you were wondering what happens to the old jerseys… we did not want them to go to waste, so we’re investigating the possibility of donating them to schools and clubs in the Pacific Islands.

We would like to thank Patrick Sawyer, our gear coordinator, and Football Central for their help with the new design. We are particularly pleased to now have jerseys specifically designed for the girls.

Here’s the Grade 12 Calcuttas sporting the new look – We think they look pretty smart!

Great results for Grade 7 Onslow players at the West’s Tournament

On Saturday, the Grade 7 OJFC teams at the West’s Tournament had an amazingly successful day !

The Onslow Reds took out the cup (overall winners) and the Onslow Greens won the plate.  Special mentions to Wil Snarski  from the Onslow Greens who won the Grade 7 MVP and Zak Ismail-Sanders  from the Onslow Reds who won the Golden Boot for being the top goal scorer.

Overall it was a great tournament – their Club president commented that it was the first time in his 10 years that there had been no complaints about the sportmanship of the parents.

If there are any other results out there for other Grades please send the details to and I will post them here on the website

Onslow Tuis win the 13th Grade Premier League Cup

On Saturday 26th August 2 Onslow teams walked out onto the turf at Memorial Park for their respective Premier League Cup finals. They were the Onslow Tuis from Grade 13 and the Onslow Amritsars from Grade 14. The games were refereed by a national league ref and they also had linesmen.

What a great way to end the season. The Onslow Tuis came away with a 1-0 win over Karori to win the overall 13th Grade Premier League Cup. Well done the Tuis.


The Onslow Amristars had a very competitive game against Island Bay Sharks for the Grade 14 premier League title. The teams were locked in a 2-2 draw at full time, followed by another 5 mins each way which could still not split the two teams, so it went to penalties. The final score 5-3 to Island Bay Sharks after all the penalties were taken. Well done the Amritsars !

Onslow Junior Football Club changes

Hi all.

The end of the season is fast approaching, with only two weekends of football left.  We trust you have enjoyed it.

We would like to share with you some changes that are about to occur at OJFC.

Recent developments in the wider Wellington football community have opened up opportunities for Onslow in terms of reshaping its football development programs.

These include the appointment of former Team Wellington Coach, Matt Calcott, as Director of Football at North Wellington AFC (NW Seniors), and proposed changes to the Capital Football’s FTC program.  These changes primarily affect youth football, grade 13 through to 17.

As recent articles on the Stuff news website have highlighted, the transition from youth football to senior football is complex, providing challenges for young footballers and their families. We believe these changes can provide Onslow with the opportunity to support its young footballers through this difficult phase, an option we previously have not had.

It has resulted in changes going forward to the football programs currently being delivered by 2-Clubs.

OJFC and North Wellington Junior Football Club have made the decision to disband 2-Clubs as an entity. This will help provide the space for both clubs to put in place their respective football pathways.

However, this will not affect the availability of Milan’s highly popular football programs that he has made available to all junior footballers in Wellington’s northern suburbs, over the past 5 years.

Milan’s contribution to junior football in the area during that time has been, to the Onslow Committee, beyond value, building a highly popular series of programs, enjoyed by a fantastic number of kids in the area. This is in addition to his work supporting and developing our volunteer coaches.

As such, OJFC is committed to retaining Milan’s skills in our future offerings, and that he will make a significant contribution to what shape our football programs will take.

Details of his October Holiday program will be released shortly, Information on his Term 4 off-season programs, can be found on the 2-Clubs and Onslow websites,.

The off-season programs contain some exciting new changes, including specialist Goal-Keeper training, and a proposed new 2 v 2 Friday competition.

Registration to these programs are currently open, and, as with all 2-Clubs programs previously, there are no restrictions on who can register.

While we’re still uncertain what shape Onslow’s future football pathway from juniors through to youth and onto seniors will look like, we’re confident that when we do know, we’ll be able to share some exciting new developments with you.

See you all at prize giving on 27 August 2017.
