Big awards night for Monbulk Soccer Club

Monbulk’s Under 13 Rangers were undefeated for the season, winning the VCFA B Division cup.

About 400 junior players from the Monbulk Soccer Club celebrated their winter season with a gala presentation day on 12 October.

The Under 13 Rangers brought home the silverware as premiers in the B Division of the Victorian Churches Football Association.

The Alex Webb trophy for the junior showing sportsmanship and club spirit went to Under 13 Raptors player Zac Ricketts, whose mother, Narelle, was awarded Club Person of the Year for her work as team manager and maintaining the club’s gardens.

Rangers coach Dom Friguglietti said it had been a terrific season for the Under 13 Rangers team which was undefeated.

“The boys worked hard as a team to share the ball around and that’s what we value at Monbulk Rangers, the commitment to improve every players’ skill level to build a great team,” he said.

The soccer is not over though, with 200 juniors registered to play in the five-a-side Spring Competition this week.
