A group of 25 South Hobart players trained on Saturday morning at Cornelian Bay. It was a strong training session and the group is starting to mature and become stronger. We are learning to attack together, defend together and most importantly the players are putting in the effort for each other. Everyone is fighting for his team mate on the pitch. This makes a massive difference.
A majority Liberal Government will provide $50,000 to South Hobart FC to allow us to complete the much needed upgrade of our club rooms and facilities at Wellesley Park.

I first met Lucas when he was a 9 year old. Lucas and Max played against each other in the fierce competition of the Regionals. Lucas played for Eastern and Max played for Central. Lucas's mother Hedwig and I became friends across the divide of football field. Happy, competitive times shared by many Tasmanians.
At 5.30pm on Thursday 6 March (this Thursday) at the Cornelian Bay Training venue there will be an important announcement and update about our new Wellesley Park facilities and we would like as many club supporters there as possible to listen to this fabulous news. Please come and share this terrific announcement with your fellow club supporters, players and members.
In the semi final of the B division Summer Cup South Hobart defeated a confident, hardworking Clarence team 6-2. South started the game brightly dominating possession with Clarence looking dangerous on the counter attack and they had the chances.

Nick Di Martino, Dale McKay, Max Clarke, Matt Lewis, Saad Mohamad, Chris Oddie and Ned Clarke are all attending the C Licence course in Launceston. Another great coaching representation from our enthusiastic coaches.
We are lucky at South Hobart FC. We have a terrific bunch of volunteers making sure the club runs smoothly day to day. We thought it was about time we started to write about these wonderful women and men. Today we pay tribute to Noel Clark.
There are a lot of misconceptions about South Hobart Football Club. Our President Victoria Morton would like to set the record straight.
1. No Victory League player is paid by SHFC. We can’t afford it. If we start out on the path of making player payments we would soon go broke! We do however cover registration fees for our core starting team as at the start of the season. We also cover the $11,000 annual licence fee to field a team in the Victory League. This is thanks to the generous support of our sponsors – and not from the pockets of our other players. The FFT inspects our financial records.
