Sawtell FC's 1st Round of O35s Games to be Played at Toormina this Thursday Night 14th May

Sawtell FC's three Over 35s teams will finally commence their season this Thursday night 14th May, and the games can be watched down at Toormina Oval!

Normally played at the CeX Stadium, and more recently relegated to the outer Leisure Park fields, the horrific weather that Coffs Harbour received a couple of weeks ago during the Touch World Titles has unfortunately rendered the Leisure Park fields 'unplayable' for the start of the Over 35s competition. At one stage it was looking like we may not get a start until June!

So in an attempt to kick-start the Over 35s competition before the rest of the junior and senior season is already half way through, Sawtell FC have come to the rescue and made Toormina Oval available for games tomorrow night, and you can see the draw below.

So get on down and hopefully you will see three Sawtell FC teams put on a show of good football during the evening.

NNSWF Announces 2015 Girls Football Week Program

In the wake of International Women’s Day, Northern NSW Football (NNSWF) is pleased to announce the 2015 Girls Football Week Program.

A true reflection of International Women’s Day’s 2015 Theme, ‘Make it Happen’, NNSWF’s Girls Football Week was initiated in 2012 to foster appreciation, acknowledgement and support of females currently within football, as well as to encourage and welcome new participants into the sport.

The fourth NNSWF Girls Football Week will take place from 11th until 17th May 2015 with an aim to highlight and appreciate female participation in football across all echelons of the game including playing, coaching, refereeing and volunteering.

The 2015 Girls Football Week program will include NNSWF’s fourth annual Female Football Forum at which clubs are invited to participate with a view to provide NNSWF’s Board of Directors recommendations relating to the growth, promotion and development of women’s football throughout the Region, in addition to a Women’s Leadership Development Workshop, Girls Gala Day and Female Only Grassroots Coaching Course.

Additionally, the week will culminate in Round 10 of the Herald Women’s Premier League on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th May during which clubs will be encouraged to hold fundraisers in support of the Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation’s (HBCF) Boot Out Breast Cancer Campaign.

In addition to the Herald Women’s Premier League HBCF fundraising round, fellow NNSWF clubs have been invited to participate in the HBCF’s Boot Out Breast Cancer Campaign, or Breast Cancer Network Australia’s Pink Sports Day.

Season Commences This Weekend - 18th April

Hello Sawtell FC players and families.

Other than our senior teams and 14 Boys teams (who kicked off over the last couple of weekends), the first round for everyone else is fast approaching this weekend 18th April (for the 17 Boys it will be Friday night the 17th).

Just a reminder that all players’ online registration (including payment) must be finalised before any player can take the field for their first game. If you have not already done so you can contact to arrange where and how to make payment.

Whilst your coach or manager may advise you of your upcoming game times, you can also visit the NCF draw website on to check out your game times each week. You can also download the FREE Fox Sports Pulse app for your phone from iTunes or Google Play to get the various draws direct to your smartphone or tablet.

Also please make sure you always liaise with your team coaches & managers if you cannot make training or games. They volunteer their time to run the team throughout the season, and it is helpful for them to know beforehand for their game day preparation if someone cannot make it.

Sawtell FC would like to wish you all the best for the season ahead. Good luck and play well!

Kind regards,

The Sawtell FC Committee

Sawtell Football Club is excited to announce the appointment of Manchester United trained and qualified local Ash Adams as their Reserve Grade Coach for the 2015 Season. Ash has spent the past 12 months with Manchester United obtaining his coaching qualifications through their development programme and he is excited to be back home to assist Sawtell FC this year. Ash returns to Manchester later in the year to continue coaching and further his coaching qualifications.
