Dear Box Hill United football family,
We wanted to write to you and let you know that the club is thinking about all our wonderful players, coaches, staff, families and sponsors and missing everyone around the club. It’s only been two weeks since the season was suspended but it already seems like an eternity.
We are all in an undefined time, and facing challenges and concerns that we never would have imagined a few weeks earlier. It’s at times like this that we are reminded of how vulnerable we are, and what it means to stick together and be part of a strong supportive group.
It’s been great to see social media posts of some of our happy players’ faces and it would be great to see a lot more to keep everyone connected and smiling. What we miss most is our players’ smiles around the club; and this is not something they deserve nor anyone else. Please make sure you stay connected with your teams using any of the wonderful video apps that are easily accessible.
We know that Football Victoria and Football Federation Australia are working hard to keep everyone updated on the current changes across the football landscape. We haven’t given up hope on the season continuing at some point in 2020 as we look towards our next update from our governing bodies around April 14.
We most definitely don’t want the season to be lost. So, we encourage all players to keep working hard in the environment they have to work in.
We want you to know that we are working through current and potential impacts this has on our club and the season, and the possible ramifications for 2021. We will look to extend our player development beyond the traditional end of the season, facilities permitting, so very little development is lost. Although we can’t promise anything until this is all done and dusted.
Please take care and consider there are many people doing it tough, look after your loved ones and be kind to each other. Together we can get through this and we will come out the other side stronger.
We are so grateful to have our wonderful football family. We miss you all.
Box Hill United SC
