The Mirboo North United Football Club was started in 2009 as an opportunity for the youth of the area to participate in a variety of team based sports. The clubs roots have recently been traced back as far as 1914 when a photo of the Mirboo North Soccer team was located and published as part of Anzac day remembrance in 2015. The Clubs main focus is delivering a quality sporting option for junior players and currently has 28 mini roo players, under 11, and 32 Junior players, under 16 years of age. Since starting the club has achieved many goals including ground drainage, ground improvements and lighting while providing quality training and game day equipment.
Value to the Community
The Mirboo North Soccer Club is unique in that it shares facilities with the Australian Rules, Netball and Cricket clubs. Sponsorship of the Mirboo North Soccer club will also benefit these clubs and the community as a whole. The soccer club is also in discussion with the Mirboo North Primary and Secondary schools to provide facilities for soccer to become part of the sporting curriculum. Providing multiple sporting opportunities in a small community creates challenges in finding sponsorship from local businesses that already support other local teams.
Why the funds are needed
Currently the Mirboo North United Football club is raising money to pay off the ground and facility improvements leaving no room to purchase equipment for Junior training and game days. This funding will enable the club to provide equipment to our junior teams as well as continue to raise money for previous and future infrastructure requirements, such as women's change rooms close to the playing field. Provide Netting for the Under 11 and Under 9 goals - $600 ($300 per pair) Provide 30 new balls so every child has a ball at training - $450
