The lack of facilities was always going to play a major part in the build up and preparation for Sydney soccer team North Shore Monash,  now in the top flight of soccer, as well as the sustainability throughout the season…reports Steve Edelmuth

Hakoah President and Player of the Year Will Cam

In saying that, together with numerous injuries, suspensions, untimely overseas trips and holidays, I am proud to say that the team managed to stay up in premier league – by playing some incredibly impressive football, at times, often showing our top opposition that we are a team to be reasoned with in the future, especially as we were probably the youngest side in the league. It is no mean feat to stay up in Division 1, as history has shown that the majority of the teams coming up from Division 2 are unable to maintain their position in Division 1. Not only did we maintain it by a clear 5 points, but we were also one of the few teams that actually beat both sides that came 2nd and 3rd in the league, which shows that we are there amongst the best. We just need to have consistency and show a little more commitment and we can be premier league champions.

A big thank you to all those supporters that came week in and week out to support us – it really made us feel very proud to see the crowds on the sideline every Saturday.

Special thanks to Ricky for being the reserve team coach and the incredible support that he has given to the whole squad. Josie Rutovitz – our dedicated manager who was always there to support both the firsts and reserves and to Colin for filling in whenever needed – Thanks guys greatly appreciated. Not to forget our BBQ and drinks suppliers (the Cohen crew) for being there week in and week out. A special thanks to Les Paiken for helping out while I was overseas.

The club should be proud of what has been created that we can achieve the dream of having a Monash team in premier league – what an achievement from probably one of the smallest club’s with such limited resources.

To the players themselves, it has been great coaching you guys – the laughter, the shouting, the hard work, the fun, the commitment, the support and the togetherness – we have been through it all and have come out on top – YOU ARE THE CHAMPIONS

Remember boys – not every year can be the same – some are happier than others, some are sometimes more successful than others, some seasons will teach you more than others, some coaches are better than others, but at the end of it all, you guys are a super squad, stay together and make it happen together. Here’s to winning the Premier League in the future.
