City spurs local club

IN April of this year Korumburra City Soccer Club, Joined the Melbourne City FC / City clubs program. Since joining the Melbourne City Football Club clubs’ program back in April, the Korumburra City Soccer Club has been spurred on by some great events.

Korumburra City SC has taken part in Junior Clinics, played a Mini Roo half time game and will play a role on February 13 at the final Melbourne derby in front of a packed AAMI Park when Melbourne Victory plays the Melbourne City FC.

Korumburra City Soccer Club vice president Michael DuVe was also chosen to award the man of the match award when City hosted Glory on November 27.

DuVe and another club person Dave Hurst attended the Manchester City Trophy Tour earlier this year which included a talk by Mark Williams who was a goal keeper for Manchester in the 1980s.

Williams spoke about the community programs he was involved in at Manchester City with the less fortunate people who live in their community.

He talked about the impact and knowledge gained from the people who lived on the harsher side of reality.

Manchester City has learnt to be successful by involving everyone as part of the club community regardless of class or income.

That attitude, Mr Williams told his audience, rewarded the club.

It is partly the influence of this outward looking mentality and openness that has Melbourne City reaching out to country as well as metropolitan soccer clubs.

Korumburra City Soccer Club invites all people in our community to become involved with soccer in South Gippsland and also anyone who is looking to play or coach in 2016 come and join in with a club that shares City’s attitude towards the community.
