Season Honours 2023
Woodvale FC had another successful season on the pitch, especially in the Juniors age group. We had two league winners this year, the U18 DV3 and U16 DV2 teams, which also both progressed to the Grand Final but fell just short at the last hurdle. The U15 NDV2 team battled through two penalty shootouts to win their Grand Final, and the U18 DV4 team became the first-ever Woodvale team to make it into a Junior Cup Final, ultimately losing to but never outclassed by a Hamersley team three divisions above them. The U16 Girls team knocked over a Whitfords team that had only lost once all season to get into the Grand Final, where they cruelly lost on penalties. The U13 NDV1 team were also one of six Woodvale teams in the top-four finals. And we can’t forget the Over 45s DV3 team, which grabbed second spot this year.
Kai Nell Award 2023
The club’s most important award is presented annually to members who go above and beyond for Woodvale FC, giving their time selflessly year after year.
This year’s recipient more than fits that bill. He has coached his daughter’s teams, coached and managed a Vets team for many years, and gives up his time each week to train our Junior goalkeepers along with Matt Day.
He is a leader on the pitch, demanding high standards from his players, and a gentleman off the pitch, always ready to put up his hand to support the club.
A true leader among the Vets and a selfless volunteer who gives up his time for all age groups, Manni Dierson is a great asset to our club and worthy recipient of this year’s award.
New Chichester Clubrooms Open
The new clubrooms at Chichester South were completed in March 2023, just in time for the start of the season. We also opened the Woodies Canteen with the help of local business-owners Joanne and Baryn. Despite some issues with access, the club is confident CoJ will give Woodvale FC – the suburb’s largest sports & community group – fair access in 2024.
Woodvale FC is very grateful to CoJ and local stakeholders for supporting this exciting community project.
Optus Stadium Parade – West Ham vs Perth Glory
Our Football West ticket allocation was massively oversubscribed this year, with more than 250 players and coaches hoping to attend. In the event, we were given tickets for 145 members, who got to experience the exciting on-pitch atmosphere at Optus Stadium before the West Ham v Glory game.
