Star players of the month


"Ella is one of the two captains of SAFC’s 04G I team. Her leadership as center back for the possession style that the team plays has been vital all season and during our State Cup run. She has also contributed offensively by scoring four goals in the last four matches. Her charisma and positive vibe brings joy to the training sessions without losing the competitive spirit of the game. As part of the oldest age group on the girl’s side, she is an excellent role model to come out and see.

"Justin is player that can make an impact in different positions. He is often invited to play up and brings high energy to the team. Justin has scored 7 goals and has assisted twice this season, including a hat trick in our Round of 16 State cup game. He has been able to maintain a good rhythm transitioning from high school soccer, where he scored 11 goals and had 3 assists in 14 games. He is definitely a player to watch. Come out and see him play."
