Chelsea FC Teams Travel to Bendigo for Tournament Weekend.

On the weekend of March 26 and 27, three Chelsea teams made their way to Bendigo for the annual tournament called “Bendigo FC Boys & Girls” organised by the FV and hosted in the wonderful regional centre of Greater Bendigo. Each year this tournament draws the best academies from all over Victoria, as well as regional teams, NPL teams and composite representative teams. The standard of football is amazing as one would expect when the very best teams attend.

It's a serious tournament where every team is HIGHLY competitive. Win at all costs is the general mentality!

Paddy MacGuinness took our community U10 team for their second visit to Bendigo and took on academies such as Rowville Institute and Williams Landing. We played well and the team learned a lot – evidenced by their win in the Chelsea Easter Cup a week later. Congratulations to a young team that will only get better. It was a super effort by everyone.

From the Coach Paddy himself:

“The team started off very nervous and took a while to warm up. But once they were going, they gave a great performance.

Day 1

First match against Williams Landing – score was 0-4. The score didn’t reflect our performance the standard of the teams was matched

Second match against Real Football institute – the team were at a much higher level. Ended up 6-1

Last match against surf coast – was a tight game, ended up in a 2-2 draw. Chelsea did score a third in the last minute, but it was disallowed as the ref said it hit one of our players hands in the net….so the boys claimed this win lol, and it closed the day nicely as they were all in high spirits

Day 2

First up was Shepperton and the team were losing 2-3 at half time and the heads were down, then a 4th came for Shepparton, but the boys fighting spirit came out of the bag and they played their hearts out to come away with a 5-4 win. It was an amazing show of talent when put under pressure. This win got them through to the plate final so they were hyped and ready to go.

The final was against Sydenham and the boys again were very well matched but unfortunately it wasn’t their day and the score ended up 0-2.

All in all it was a great experience for the team, the standard was very high. The team made some mistakes that they will learn from to help them in this season and the weather was 30 degrees so tough for the teams to play in.

The support and encouragement from the parents was second to none and the manners and decorum and sportsmanship of our kids was something the club should be proud of”

Two other teams attended – the U15s and U17s. Both teams had much success. The u17s were able to make it through to the semi-finals losing 1-0 to the Sunraysia NPL team. It was the first time the boys in U17 had played together and the weekend was more aligned to be a team bonding exercise which was successfully achieved. In the division matches we were able to draw Williams Landing 1-1 – and they went on to win the Cup. Great job by all the young folks in the Chelsea Phoenix!

The U15s, led by Coach Juan and Assistant Coach Alan, made the Grand Final of the plate and were able to bring home the silverware which now sits proudly in our trophy cabinet at HD Thomas Reserve. Congratulations to these guys – who also played for the first time as a team. From Coach Juan:

“The boys played well.

We went to penalty shootout in the semi final

Then we played in the grand final in the plate.

We won the Grand Final 2-0!”

 Overall, it was a FANTASTIC experience and I want to say what a great bunch of parents we have at Chelsea. They were supportive, never argued with referee decisions, congratulated great play and I believe had a great time.

And of course, the coaches – without them we could not have achieved what was achieved during the Bendigo FC Boys and Girls weekend!

Next year, 2023, we hope to take more teams such as our U8, U9, U10, U11 teams, as well  as our next year’s U15 girls.

Go Chelsea!

Come Play in the ROYAL BLUE in 2022!

Chelsea FC have a wonderful home at the Edithvale Recreational Reserve on Edithvale Road, in EDITHVALE. We are situated about 900 Metres from the beach and boast a wonderful set of facilities and playing grounds. We were recently granted Five Star Club Status by the FV because of our fantastic community spirit, innovative programs and our philosophy of coaching.

The club prides itself on getting quality coaching and currently boast two ‘B’ Licenced and five ‘C’ Licenced on staff. This is the same quality of coaching that you would find at NPL clubs. In fact, one of our ‘B’ Licenced coaches runs the Goal-kick and U7 programs – ensuring youngsters get the best possible start to their football career.

We follow the Skill Acquisition Program as outlined by the FV and FA, as well as aligning our coaching philosophy with the FFA. Our goal is to produce players that will love the game and play this game for many, many years. In the last five years alone, we have produced more than 70 players who currently play at NPL level at NPL clubs.

In 2019 and 2021, some of our teams’ successes include victory in Bendigo FC, Easter Cup and Kanga Cup as well as winning league division – with each victory being produced by playing possession-based football. Our seniors also won their state league divisions in 2018, gaining promotion.

We are now seeking interested players to continue to join our football family. We have openings in all sub Junior groups (Goalkick to U11) as well as Junior teams (U12 to U18.) We also seek players interested in playing senior football and Masters. Positions are open to both genders.

Instead of trials for U8 to U11, Chelsea runs Gala Days where the players can come down and be assessed at their age group. These dates will be announced very soon and will not clash with NPL Trials.

2020 PROMO
