Club Future

Our grounds at John Street have undergone significant works in the last year. Our training ground at Hillsborough Oval is available for early training. We have spread fertilizer to encourage grass growth and the surface is improving.

Our Women’s Premier League has expanded to include an extra age grade and three junior development teams.

Miniroos will be back at Warners Bay FC in 2021.

Last season was one like no other with Covid-19 causing major disruptions and extra requirements for players, coaches, parents and the Committee. We can expect there to be continued practices around how we operate in a pandemic we hope you keep safe and healthy. Please be flexible as things can change quickly from one day to the next. We hope that season 2021 will be a more “normal” season. 

I am looking forward to a great 2021 season and hope to see everyone enjoying Warners Bay FC.
