"Once again Barden Ridgebacks ran a 10 week goalkeeper clinic and it was
great to see so many keepers taking up the opportunity to learn there is
more to goalkeeping than getting in the way of the ball.
Our thanks to Ron Tilsed for passing on his expertise, skill and knowledge
to our keepers. Ron is the current Goalkeeper Coach with Sutherland Sharks
and an Ex Arsenal and Portsmouth keeper. Our keepers worked hard under Ron's
guidance to hone their skills
Ron runs a goalkeeper camp in January and he kindly donated a week at the
camp to the Barden Ridge goalkeeper he thought was "keeper of the clinic".
Congratulations to Taliese Howard on winning this award. Taliese did not
miss a session and impressed so much with her skill and enthusiasm to be a
Congratulations to all the keepers who attended, I have spoken to parents
and coaches and all have said the keepers have benefited from the sessions.

Please find following some information in regards to the appointment of referees to your games.
The clubs are responsible to supply referees for all U6-U9 games and U10-U11 games where an official referee is not appointed to a game.
For all other teams, the referees Association appoints referees to all games based on their availabilities. This is not something that the club controls.
If for any reason your team does not have an Association appointed referee it is up to both teams to find someone willing to referee. If no one is found, both teams lose by forfeit.
The referees Association are suffering badly this year due to a drop in numbers by some 80 black and white referees so there are bound to be many games uncovered.
If you, or you know of someone, that wants to be a referee, contact the Sutherland Shire Football Referees Assocation. http://www.ssfra.org.au/
