CB Complex 1, 2 & 3 OPEN FOR MATCHES
Valentine Phoenix is the "Playing Name" used by Valentine Football Club teams in the Northern NSW National Premier League for Men.
Since 1994, Valentine Eleebana FC and Belmont FC have worked closely together to provide a "pathway" for our Junior Players to the highest possible levels of local football. Our jointly owned senior club was Belmont Tingira Soccer Club which played in the 2nd Division from 1994. At the end of season 2005, Belmont FC relinquished their ownership of Belmont Tingira which continued in the NEWFM League as part of VEFC, playing under the name Valentine Belmont FC
VEFC merged with Phoenix Rangers Football Club from season 2008 taking on their State League Licence and changing our playing name to Valentine Phoenix.
In 2014, Valentine were relegated to the NNSW NEWFM First Division
Phoenix in its differing names (Stewart and Lloyds, Tubemakers, Phoenix) were established in 1938 and apart from a hiatus of approx 5 years in the early 80's were a significant force in the local Football competition throughout this period.
We would like to acknowledge the dedication and hard work of the players, supporters and dedicated committee people from Belmont Tingira Soccer Club, Phoenix Rangers Football Club, Belmont Football Club and Valentine Eleebana Football Club without who's dedicated service over the last 16 years, we would not have our current opportunity to provide a career pathway in Football for the youth of Eastern Lake Macquarie. For Season 2010, 2011 and 2012, more than 75% of our State League Players were local Valentine and Eastlakes juniors.
Valentine FC have been promoted to the National Premier League for Season 2016
