Melbourne Victory W-League
19 girls and their families from Chelsea FC attended at Lakeside Stadium yesterday (Sunday 10 November) to watch and participate in the Melbourne Victory W-League game against Sydney FC. Unfortunately Victory were given a football lesson from last year’s premiers and lost 5-1.
Eight of our girls acted as ball girls for the game and did a terrific job and 11 girls acted as player mascots and played a game a half time. All of the girls and their families represented the club extremely well.
Jess Humble, a local primary school teacher, played with Victory and went out of her way to talk to the girls before and after the game.
Farewell [old] clubhouse!
Demolision of the old clubhouse has been completed and building of the new clubhouse continues ready for completion before christmas. While it is sad to see the rooms go, they do make way for a brand new iconic building in the local area.

Senior Women Friday Night Under Lights
On Friday 9th August Chelsea FC hosted Albert Park SC in our first Senior Women's Night match under lights. Albert Park who currently play in State 4 of the FFV kindly came down to our fantastic facilities to discover our girls were not going to just sit back and not dig in.
We also had 2 guests, Donna Bauer our Member of state parliament & Dylan Janz from the Aspendale / Edithvale branch of the Bendigo Bank come down and cheer on our girls from the sidelines along with many other spectators and parents on a windy night.
Our squad on the first whistle just gave it all they've got to put Albert Park on the back foot very fast by scoring the first goal of the night. Very quickly there was our second, third and forth goals in the first 30 minutes of the game.
Our team finished of the first half with 6 goals to zero in 45 minutes of soccer.
Our Senior women's team started the second half in full control of the game giving Albert Park no easy chance to score thanks to a very solid defense. The final Score was Chelsea 8 defeated Albert Park 0.
The best highlight of the night was when all the Albert Park squad came back into our club rooms and sat down for a plate of pasta and a couple of drinks. Thank you to everybody that attended.
Gala Day a huge success
Well done to all the wonderful parents and club members who helped make the Under 10 Gala Day a huge success. 150 players, 44 matches, 5 pitches, 11 teams, 3 hours. They're big numbers and something that doesn't run smoothly without a lot of organisation and help.
Special thanks goes to the senior players who came down to help referee the matches, all the canteen and BBQ staff and the Under 10 parents who showed up at 8am to help set up 5 pitches at once. The kids had a great day, the club raised some money and there were no tears!
The club looks forward to hosting more gala days in the coming years...

Movie night a great success
Thanks to our great volunteers for a fun movie night for the youngsters of our club. Even some mums and dads enjoyed the night - over 65 people in attendance enjoyed the pizzas, popcorn, lollies & chocolates. More importantly they enjoyed sitting back on their bean bags chilling out with their team mates. A special thank you goes out to Craig Ryan (U12 girls team manager) for this fun idea.
New club rooms coming along nicely...

Rollin rollin rollin
A picture of our president Juan rollin pitches 2 and 3 so that they can start being used for matchday this year. While everyone else was enjoying a sleep in, Juan spent the entire day rolling the pitches in so they could be safe for the kids to run around on. It's dedication like this from our club volunteers that keep this club running so give Juan a big thumbs up next time you see him!
(or at the very least give him a virtual thumbs up and click the like button to the right!)
Chelsea Senior Women's team win
Our senior women's team traveled to Rosebud to play their 3rd round game against Rosebud.
We went into the game with no substitutes and 2 players with injuries that just wanted to play and join their team mates. Rosebud kicked the first 2 goals of the game and with determination that has been missing in the past games we bounced back to kick 2 goals before half time. We started the second half with plenty of confidence and this resulted in Chelsea kicking their 3rd goal to take the lead. With only 15 minutes to go Rosebud were awarded a penalty kick and converted to equal the scores at 3-3.
Our team never gave up and wanted the win, this was the difference between both teams, with only 5 minutes to go our great hunger for the win was sealed by Beth kicking the winning goal.
Chelsea defeated Rosebud 4-3.
Well done girls.
