Weston Molonglo Football Club is a sporting organisation with more than 1000 members. The club has existed for forty years, servicing Waramanga, Weston, Duffy, Holder, Rivett, Stirling, Chapman and Fisher. It will also cover the new Molonglo area, as construction in the area continues.
The club is run entirely by volunteers and was formed to appeal to the social and fun elements of playing football, together with promoting strong community leadership and engagement.

As an accredited Club supporting responsible service of alcohol with Good Sports, WMFC has received four free tickets to the biggest club football match in the country.
That’s right – we have four tickets to give away to Western Sydney Wanderers vs Sydney FC at Parramatta Stadium on Saturday 11 January. You’ll struggle to get tickets any other way to this surefire sellout!
So how can you get your hands on this hot property? We’ll give away two tickets each to the first two people who can secure a sponsorship for the Club. All the information you need is contained in our 2014 Sponsorship Prospectus here.
You just need to convince your local business or employer to support us with at least $500. Once you’ve got the agreement, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll give you the tickets as soon as the agreement is confirmed.
We’d also love to get a volunteer Sponsorship Coordinator, to keep our sponsorships ticking over. The role is totally flexible, not demanding, and the Club has already created all the materials you’ll need to succeed. If you are interested, please also contact email@example.com.
WMFC NPL Grading and Squads 14-16
November 14, 2013
WMFC has completed the first stage of grading and trials for NPL 12-16 teams for 2014. We are still seeking talented and committed players to join our NPL 14 and 16 squads.
WMFC NPL 16 training starts Mon 18 Nov 1800-1930 and continues for four weeks before resuming in the New Year. Come along or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
WMFC NPL 14 players please contact PL14@wmfc.org.au for more information.
Weston Molonglo FC is currently putting in place measures to improve the performance of our SL 1 (competing in the Capital League) and SL 2 teams and the attractiveness of these teams. By improving the attractiveness of these teams we hope to retain players coming through our junior ranks and encourage a return to WMFC of players who have gone to other clubs.
The aim is to have measures that enable WMFC to seamlessly transfer to the Men’s Premier League if we are ever fortunate enough to be granted a Premier League licence.
To this end we are scouting for the following volunteers:
1) An assistant SL1 coach
2) A goalkeeper coach
3) A sport’s trainer/physio for games
4) NPL U16 coach.
With the exception of the NPL 16 position, these roles might suit someone who has experience but in 2014 is unable fully commit to coaching a team due to other issues, or an enthusiastic younger person who is looking for exposure to senior football.
We would appreciate, should you become aware of anyone looking for voluntary work in one of more of these areas, if you could refer the person to either myself email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org (Graeme Plath –MCL Coach).

- Over 10 years experience coaching at Premier League level in the ACT

“We are particularly excited to bring Graeme’s talents to the Club after he stood out in a very strong field of candidates,” said Senior Chair, Ben Sakker Kelly.
“From talking to Graeme, it was clear that he understood the Club’s mission in developing a competitive men’s high performance program, which can easily transition to Premier League football if the Club is granted a license in coming years.”
The new Head Coach is champing at the bit to begin preparations for 2014.
“Weston is a club with a proud history, and I am confident that we can return to the elite ranks of men’s football in Canberra,” Graeme said.
“I was very keen to accept the role, as it will give me a chance to help create a strong system of youth development that will serve the Club well for a strong future in the Premier League.”
Graeme’s appointment comes off the back of the Club’s first year offering Men’s Premier League U12 and U14 teams under a Memorandum of Understanding with Cooma Tigers FC. This year, the Club will also take on a PL U16 team under the arrangement.
Players interested in trialling for the Men’s Capital League squad in 2014 should watch the Club’s Facebook page, Twitter account and website for details of trials, which will be held in the new year.
