New Robin Thomas Amenities block

Planning for the new Robin Thomas Amenities block is finally underway.

Our current facilities, dating from the 1960s,  are in poor condition and we have been working with council for some time to have them replaced.  Planning was underway around 2014 before the light rail project started. That put a stop on it all.  Whilst we disagree with various parts of light rail design and its  impact on Robin Thomas, the plans are now set and our new facilities are being planned.

The existing club house and amenities buildings will be removed and a new building built, we think behind the existing amenities building.  This is currently expected to happen from September 2019 and be ready for the 2020 season. Of course this is dependent on a lot of things and we are hoping the existing amenities building can be kept until the new building is ready. But hopefully just one more season with the old stuff and then in 2020 our facilities finally move into the 21st Century!!

Artist impression of an older version of the plans – the layout has since changed but the style should be similar.

Electronic Team Sheets.

The association is introducing Electronic “Team Sheets” this year.

For new coaches/managers, “Team Sheets”  is how we determine who is allowed to play in a game (registered, insured, right age etc.).  They are also used to record the shirt numbers (U12 and up) and results.   Traditionally a paper sheet has been used, combined with player ID cards.  Each team’s coach/manager must  fill it in.

For this season – electronic team sheets will be used.  Please grab the offical instructions here!    You can also view a club produced video introduction here (96Mb via DropBox) .

You are welcome to give it a go yourself.  The “Team Sheets” link is on the club web site and you can ask Tony for a list of account numbers and passwords for the test system.
