Time Has Come!
Dear Box Hill United Pythagoras SC family,
After 18 years involved in the Committee of this magnificent club my time has come to step down.
It has not been an easy decision to make, and one that I deliberated at length, but I am now ready to move on knowing that I have given my all in making this proud club, of great history, the best it can be.
I would like to first and foremost thank my very understanding wife and 2 lovely daughters who have allowed me the time away from home to follow my passion in helping this great club. Their support has been much appreciated, and on this occasion “behind every good man is 3 even better women.” Thank you Ladies.
To the current and past committee members, thank you for your constant vote of confidence. You have all made my life easier and together we have shaped the club into what it is today. I appreciate, respect and value your countless hours spent as unpaid custodians of Box Hill United Pythagoras SC.
To the future committee I wish you all the best and trust you will continue to make decisions together and when your time is up, take pride in knowing you will leave the club in better place than when you found it.
To the hundreds of players, coaches and parents I have had the pleasure of meeting throughout my tenure, thanks for treating me with respect and congratulations on being involved in football.
I commend all the parents for their sacrifice and devotion to their children’s sport. It takes a lot of time, and in today’s busy lifestyle I trust the values your children have learned will help them in life, and in time, pass their knowledge and values onto future generations.
We are all involved in sport for various reasons. The one constant which isn’t always obvious is for the social aspect and the friendships we make along the way.
On this note, I leave my final thanks to my great friends, “The Pythagoreans”. We have shared 20 years of football, end of season trips, social functions and whatever else you can think of together. If it wasn’t for our club we would never have crossed paths and that would have been a real shame.
Thank you all once again for your support, and I look forward to now coming down as a supporter of Box Hill United Pythagoras SC, a club that will always hold a special place in my heart.
(For the last time....Go Hawks!)
Box Hill United SC
