  3. Hi, I'm a 29 year old male from Leicester, and I am emigrating to Adelaide in October this year. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any Football (soccer) Supporters Clubs in the Adelaide area. In particular any Leicester City supporters? My girlfriend and I are moving over and won't really know anybody else in the city, so thought it might be a good idea to see if there any supporters over there. Even if you don't happen to support Leicester City, would still be good to meet people who actually like watching proper football and not AFL! (not that there's anything wrong with AFL but I'll be having withdrawal symptoms if I don't watch any football....) Any advice or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. If you don't like football but would still be interested in meeting up to socialise and make friends, drop us a PM. Cheers Steve

  7. Looking for somewhere for you kids to play football next season ? Port Pirates are based in the Western Suburbs and have a great family club atmosphere. Exciting times, - Seniors Promoted to NPL, New Clubrooms and Pitches at Taperoo later this year. New Junior Coaching Director announced. any questions - PM Me Messenger Link Here ENGLISHMAN LEADS CHARGE TO DEVELOP JUNIORS INTO FUTURE CHAMPIONS PORT Adelaide Pirates are looking to the future just weeks after securing their place in SA soccer’s top flight.Port Adelaide Pirates Soccer Club has appointed Simon Parr, as a new technical director. The Ethleton-based club is still in celebration mode after it wrapped up the State League title and automatic promotion last month. But plans are already being formulated to develop the Pirates’ next generation of stars and establish them as a Premier League force in South Australia. The club last week appointed Simon Parr as its junior technical director. The Englishman says he hopes to convert recent success into long-term benefits. “My job is to deliver the kids out of the junior set-up with the best possible skill set for the senior teams,” the 48-year-old. “There is a big buzz around the club at the moment and hopefully that filters through to the juniors as well.” Pirates last season fielded junior teams from under-13 to under-16. Parr, who has lived in Australia six years, says his goal is to implement Football Federation Australia’s national coaching curriculum throughout the club. “It’s possession-based football, but the aim is for controlled possession in the attacking third. “If there’s space in front of you, you’ve got to attack it. “But to do that, you’ve got to get the basic skill sets in place. You’ve got to crawl before you can run.” Parr, an English FA level two coach, helped establish a successful junior club in Runcorn, near Liverpool. Since arriving in SA he has coached juniors at Adelaide City and West Torrens Birkalla, and worked in Football Federation SA’s development programs. Last year he also completed his senior and junior Asian Football Confederation C-licence courses. Parr says his first job will be to develop coaching plans to ensure all staff are delivering similar training sessions. He also wants all junior sides to play an attacking 4-3-3 formation. “We want to get all coaches working in the same direction. “So if there is a boy in under-13s who is doing well, he can step up immediately, play with the older team and the training will be very similar to what he’s used to. “The aim is that all the players coming through are all skilled and capable of playing the formation the senior coaches want.”

  21. I would like to reply to Suzer about her blog she wrote on her webpage called: FISH OUT OF WATER - Titled: Nepotism - or something very like it! (See Below) http://h2h-fishoutofwater.blogspot.com/2009/05/nepotism-or-something-very-like-it.html#comment-form I have been coaching semi pro football and profession football since I was 18 years old, now being 40 years old and my son is a professional footballer as well, which hopefully once we have emigrated to Adelaide he can then sign up for a professional soccer club and I would like to continue coaching youths soccer. What it is for a lot of youth football/soccer managers and coaches is that they want the kids to win, so they tend to pick the well known kids who have a good reputation for having good soccer skills and attributes, but most importantly is that their parents are in the click, in other words they have money and contribute in some way to the clubs finances, i.e. they sponsor the soccer team, make donations or the family are generally well known to people. Depending on how old the children are when they are playing soccer, depends on how you choose the players to play for you. When they are under 13 years old I have always played the lads who turn up week after week and those ones who always pay their subs and on time. But it is a natural progression that lads who play football want to win and at 13 years old and above thats the only thing they care about. Hence picking those lads with a good reputation for being a good footballer/soccer player. As a soccer youth manager/coach you pick those lads who turn up for training, never miss games or paying their subs and their parents come and support team week in week out regardless of the weather conditions and then you start to lose games, because you have picked the good lads and not those lads who have the soccer skills/abilities. The best players lose heart and end up leaving to another club because that team/club always win. The good lads end up playing and getting beat week in week out and end up being laughing stocks to their soccer counterparts/friends. This situation is horrible to be in as a Youth soccer manager/coach especially when you know full well that the lad in question is a really really nice kid, you have gained great support from their family and he plays with all his might in every game. But there is a cocky young lad with all the soccer skills and attributes, who can win games just on his own performances. Depending on how old the team is you just cannot turn him down, because if the team keeps losing games the current players get disheartened and end up leaving. The best thing you lad can do is keep trying for other teams and show that original team how stupid they were to miss out on him. But must warn you later down the line if that team comes for him, your lad will forget about how he has been treated by them and just wants to play for that team, especially if they have a good soccer team reputation and his mates play for them. Sorry if this has has made you feel that I am having a go at your lad please do not think that of me. I am just trying to explain from my experiences. When your lad plays semi pro and/or professional soccer, its even worse, one bad game and it's nightmare, your lad gets dropped and it takes a lot of effort from him to get back in the team, so hard as a parent to watch your lad get treated like this and you have pick up the pieces after every disappointment.

  22. Hi everyone its took over a year to get to this message. I use to read and be ever so envy of those people who write these updates. Now it's my time. Here goes: Arrived on lunch time on Wednesday 10th February 2010. Went straight to our four week fully furnished rental from Donna Jacob, well recommended. A really nice three double bedroom house located in Seaton very near West Lakes Shopping Centre, which is amazing. After 20 mins we went to West Lakes changed our English Sterling to AUS$ then went to Coles shopping, what an eye opener regarding the prices. But enjoyable seeing the different brands etc. The people on the till were ever so friendly even packed your bags for you, lots of people waiting behind us and we felt obliged to speed up, but the people waiting said "NO WORRIES" lol. So laid back the Ozzies are and ever so friendly, the kept saying "love your accent" and "you are ever so brave to come over to Adelaide". The same first day Wednesday afternoon we went to the bank, all our bank stuff was sorted and cards ready to be picked up, once again really friendly people/staff. On the way home we visited a car rental, organised a car rental and left with the car rental, whilst driving home I just randomly stopped at a car dealers, just to get an idea of the prices etc. After twenty minutes being there I knocked down the car dealer on a Vauxhall Holden from $2000 to £1000 and three weeks left on the Rego. So my Son drove the purchased car back following me in our car rental. Next day Thursday we went into Adelaide Centre sorted out the Medicare, Tax File Numbers, purchased five sim cards from Vodaphone and also the pay-as-you-go Internet Dongle, purchased a Sat Nav and a Printer/Scanner/Copier all in one. Visited West Lakes and Shannon my daughter got offered a weeks hairdressing trial for an apprenticeship in hairdressing. Also viewed another three rental houses. Next day Friday we visited Glenelg, what a lovely gorgeous amazing place, paradise on your doorstep. Whilst walking along the promenade, we were saying "I cannot believe that we live here, we could come here everyday if we wanted to". That was the time and place where everything we wanted and dreamed about came into reality. Honest readers dreams do come true and Adelaide was the definitely our home from now onwards. Went to view another two rental houses. Friday night a great family who we met on this amazing website came to our home and welcomed us to Adelaide, they came with their lovely daughter. One hour later my son and their daughter went out drinking down Hindley Street. They have seen each other everyday since, they say they are just friends, but I know its more than that. lol. Saturday was rest day we spent the day sunbathing on Henley Beach and viewed one rental home. Sunday we met up with a really nice family from this website and ended up going to the Gorge, we fed the kangaroos, held Koala Bears and took photos, walked around and saw every animal you could think of. Cannot stand Bats urghhh! On our return we went for a meal with this family. Monday my son Nathan aged 20 and I got invited to to lunch with the Italian owner and Director of Adelaide City at the ground in Oakden. We had a five course meal, wine the full works, shown round the ground and discussed soccer contracts and wages for my son. In the evening we went to see Adelaide City play a match at home and both Nathan and I spent the evening in the Directors box and again having a buffet at half time. Free drinks too. Tuesday I visited MINDA in Seacliff and got a job offer from them, as long as I can get my skills assessed via the skills recognition board and complete the senior first aid course. Tuesday afternoon we veiwed three houses and a bit of shopping. In the evening we went back to Adelaide City and Nathan received some medical treament/physio because he has a slight ligament strain in his ankle. At this point the owner/director of Adelaide City also offered to purchase him a car so my son can get to training and also offered him a job at his company called BEST BRICKS, working in the office, and can also help him if he wants to gain his own accommodation. Every person we have came into contact who are associated to Adelaide Juventas Soccer Club are absolutely amazing people. What a friendly and helpful bunch of people. Tuesday evening we met up with another amazing family from this website and went for a drink at the Marine in Glenelg, but had to pick the son up on the return from the cinema at Marion with is new girl - mate/friend lol. Wednesday first thing I received a phone call from the director of Adelaide United asking Nathan and I to go and see them about playing for them, so the last two days we have been speaking to him, but feeling bad to Adelaide City, so we have arranged to go and see the Manager and the Director of Adelaide Utd this Monday afternoon. We did the right thing and told Adelaide City and they was really nice about it. This surprised us. Later in the afternoon we visited the welcome meetingn at the state government offices, waste of time, but did meet the big boss of the skills reognition board and have an appointment on Friday to see her to complete my skills assessment. Another three houses we viewed in the late afternoon and agreed to apply for a 4 bedroom rental bungalow house at Ferryden Park. Today Thursday we went visted the estate agents and applied for the house at Ferryden Park and we go it, absolutely well chuffed. Jane the wife visited her employment at the North Calvary Hospital and was shown round and got her shifts off the clinical director. This evening Nathan and I went back to Adelaide City for more Physio treatment and to watch a bit of training. Tomorrow (Friday) I will be taking back the car rental, visiting the Driving Licence place at the Marion to Rego my car and sort out SA driving licences. In the afternoon I am going to the Skills assessment meeting. Saturday is a BBQ attendance and Sunday is an afternoon with an associate from Adelaide United at his home. Jet-lag what's that, feel brilliant.
  23. Hey, Now that daylight savings is back, we have started playing soccer again at Brighton High School.
