Organised by former Socceroo, Scott Ollerenshaw, the tournament has been running for a number of years and has been highly rated. This year another former Socceroo, Ante Milicic, will be the guest speaker at the official dinner. Ante was appointed by Ange Postecoglou as his Assistant Coach for the Socceroos, after an impressive stint as the assistant manager of the Western Sydney Wanderers.
Our popular Three Day Football Clinics are back for the September/October School Holidays powered by Morton's Soccer School (MSS).

There are plenty of football websites online these day that regularly post articles about all things football—both on the pitch and off. One such website is called Leopold Method, which publishes opinion pieces on subjects such as Features, Analysis, Coaching, Business and History.
Last weekend feature writer Joe Gorman was in Hobart to watch our PS4 NPL Elimination Final against South Melbourne FC. While he was here Joe interviewed the women behind our Club, as he was very interested in writing about a club that was almost entirely run by women.
Joe's article "Those women" who run South Hobart FC was published today.
At South Hobart FC we are strongly supportive of any initiatives to better develop football at all levels in Australia. We don't see this as about women verses men, but rather getting the best qualified people into decision making positions to achieve strategic goals—of which some happen to be women.
Make sure you have a read. It is certainly food for thought.
Yesterday at Darcy Street was a testament to the hard work of everyone at South Hobart Football Club who believes belonging to a club means something. We volunteer our time because the time we give is for something we believe in. I have been President of my club for five years now, and yesterday was one of the proudest days I have experienced.
The countdown is on for our HUGE PS4 NPL Elimination Final against South Melbourne FC! We hope many of you will come to Darcy Street and witness this historic match in the flesh, but if that is not possible we are pleased to announce that there will be a livestream (with commentary) of the match.
You can also follow progress of the match on our twitter and Facebook pages. #NPLFinals #SHvSM #GoSouthHobart

We are lucky to be playing at Darcy Street and many of us are volunteering on the day to make it a success – FFT value our efforts and are appreciative. Official volunteers do not need to pay, Miriam knows who you are!
Parents with juniors involved in the day’s entertainment – go straight to the front of any queue – especially if you are running to a tight schedule coming from your own games. Unless you’re an official volunteer you will need to purchase tickets.
There will be two lines – correct change and those needing change. It will be faster to arrive with correct change. Cash payments only. No ticket pre-sales.
What a weekend for South Hobart FC. It all started on Friday night at the FFT Victory League dinner. Brayden Mann won the Golden Boot with 31 goals, Andy Brennan was second with 27 goals. Brayden Mann won the Mitsubishi Best and Fairest medal, the top award with Andy Brennan 1 point behind. Our Coach Ken Morton shared the Victory League best coach award. Ian Robson of Melbourne Victory presented Hugh Ludford and Ken Morton the Victory League Shield. What a season!
Although nothing beats watching a Final in the flesh, if you can't make it to KGV Football Park today to watch South Hobart take on Northern Rangers in the Victory Cup Final, you don't need to miss a minute and can view the livestream from whistle to whistle thanks to Ash Wilkes and FFT.
