As we see off the end of the 2013 season I’d like to thank every team for their participation this season and congratulations to those who were League Champions or Grand Final winners.
Whilst many of you have been busy on the park each week, there has been a lot of work behind the scenes by our Board, staff and volunteers to develop football for the future.
We understand that many of you may not always get the chance to see what is happening off the park and how our teams are performing when they represent the Association in Football NSW tournaments. We want to highlight these aspects of the ESFA with all of our participants in this edition of Offside.
I, along with my fellow board members, were at our Grand Finals and spoke to a number of people about the future of football in the Eastern Suburbs and we received some very encouraging feedback.
