Where: Keilor Park Sports Club

KPFC Senior Side

Dear Keilor Park Families,

It is with a heavy heart that the KPFC Club have decided to withdraw our senior team for season 2018. The decision was agreed as the best way forward to ensure our senior side remain respected and capable of challenging the best in the league on a weekly basis far into the future.

Unfortunately; due to a number of factors this pre-season, including the loss of many of experience players to –

• retirement
• career commitments
• injuries

and coupled by an inability to turn potential recruits into players, we simply haven’t been able to form a team that is suitable of playing competitive and respectful football within the EDFL competition for season 2018.

The club has exhausted every possible avenue; but have simply been unable to retain and attract enough players to commit to the upcoming senior season. For the first time in years, our balance sheet, junior program and now woman teams are strong, but these successes have simply uncovered other deficiencies in the clubs administration and operations to support a senior group that needs urgent addressing.

As a club we no longer accept living in uncertainty week to week and demand a sustainable future for our members, players and juniors. By resetting and reviewing every aspect of the club we aim to regain the trust and respect of the footballing community. With the support of members, players, strong balance sheet and especially the EDFL we are adamant of returning the Devil to senior ranks in 2019.

We’d like to thank the league for their offer to provide guidance and assistance in not only developing a business plan, but also measures to ensure we don’t find ourselves in this position ever again.

We would also like to thank our Senior Coach and Life Member Marcus Barclay for his passion for the club and ongoing efforts in trying to field a competitive team.

As a committee, we openly apologise to everyone impacted by this late decision, including players, members, EDFL and opposition clubs, but it honestly wasn’t until late March that the unfathomable reality really hit home.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to any of the committee members for clarity either directly, or through our committee email addresses most notably president@keilorparkfc.com.au, secretary@keilorparkfc.com.au or juniorco@keilorparkfc.com.au.

Regards
Keilor Park Football Committee
