IN just their second year, the Fremantle City Football Club has sent a huge message to the rest of the competition.

The club capped off a successful second season, finishing on top of the State League Division 2 ladder, earning themselves a promotion to Division 1 next year and bringing them one step closer to a coveted spot in the NPL WA.

Fremantle City FC president Maurice Oteri said they were ecstatic with this season’s performance.

“To have witnessed a group of players committed to a single- minded purpose under the leadership of the coaching staff at the club play for each other, themselves and the club was nothing short of joyful to watch evolve,” he said.

“It is difficult at the best of times to try and persuade someone to follow your vision within a club when you are basically one year young, but once you do, then anything is possible on and off the pitch.

“It’s fair to say that a number of players from upper leagues have contacted our head coach asking if they can come down and trial with the club, so with that it brings a new interest and excitement of what lies ahead.”

The club is already preparing for season 2017, holding their junior NPL trials for both boys and girls in the U12, U14, U16 and U18 age groups.

The trials will be held at Hilton Reserve from September 20 to 29.
