End of Year Xmas Message

Dear Chelsea FC Players, Family and Community,


As we head towards the Festive Season and the end of 2020, I'm sure that all of us would like to see the back of this year.


The committee started the year with a strong and positive intent to make it a great year, only for it to come to a grinding halt even before a ball could be kicked. Then, we had "Re-start 2.0" in late May (one of the first clubs in this region to start training from Day 1), only to be shut down again in mid-July some 7 weeks later. Then, we were waiting on Football Victoria to advise us when we could re-start the season, which as we all now know, they made the decision to cancel the season in September. It certainly was a roller-coaster type of a year, which threw us many unprecedented challenges - both operationally and financially.


On behalf of the General Committee, I would like to thank you for your patience, understanding and support through this time. We are fortunate to have a very supporting Chelsea FC Community that made our job to try and make some sense of this year, easier.


I would also like to take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank the General Committee for their tireless work this year. We got through it via endless Zoom meetings, emails, phone calls and social media chat groups.


One of the factors that became clear to us throughout this difficult period, was that we needed to develop and implement a financial plan that would not only see us through 2020, but also 2021. It became quite apparent to us that both seasons are going to be closely linked and so therefore we had to put together a 2 year financial plan. This included not increasing fees for 2021 and minimising our costs.

I would also like to thank all our Sponsors that supported us and came on board for 2020 and now beyond! We can announce that we have extended their all their partnerships into 2022! Their generous financial backing was one of the strong pillars that also got us through this challenging year. We are grateful for them. 


On a sadder note, a number of our Committee Members will be stepping down this year. A big, heart felt thank you for all their hard work and dedication over the years. 

Without these 4 people below, your Club could not be as strong as it is today.

20201222 082524Michelle Perpina - Social Media, Website and Graphic Design

Our brilliant graphics/flyer designer and Facebook Guru.

20201222 082536Ingrid Ponchard - Female Football Co-ordinator and Masters Women Co-ordinator

A wonderful and caring member who had a passion for helping our girls strive.

20201222 082514Domenic Boccari  - Sponsorship and Business Development Co-ordinator

The main force and lead in our Sponsorship drive.

20201222 082547Patrick Muschiarello - Junior Football Co-ordinator

A fantastic help and generous person in our Football Dept.

But not to worry! They still will be around connected to the Club they love as most still have their children playing in 2021.


Therefore, we are looking for people from our wonderful community to continue the great work that these people have started. 

If you are interested in taking on one of these roles or any other role in 2021 to help contribute to the Club and your local community then please reply to this email with your expression of interest. Any help counts.


The Chelsea FC  Committee would like to wish you and your extended family a very Merry Xmas and all the best for the festive season and a happy (ier) 2021.

See you soon in the ROYAL BLUE in 2021.

Go Chelsea!


Warm regards

John Zeccola

Chelsea FC President.

Come Play in the ROYAL BLUE in 2021!

Chelsea FC have a wonderful home at the HD Thomas Reserve on Edithvale Road, in EDITHVALE. We are situated about 900Metres from the beach and boast a wonderful set of facilities and playing grounds. We were recently granted Five Star Club Status by the FFV because of our fantastic community spirit, innovative programs and our philosophy of coaching.

The club prides itself on getting quality coaching and currently boast two ‘B’ Licenced and five ‘C’ Licenced on staff. This is the same quality of coaching that you would find at NPL clubs. In fact, one of our ‘B’ Licenced coaches runs the Goal-kick and U7 programs – ensuring youngsters get the best possible start to their football career.

We follow the Skill Acquisition Program as outlined by the FV and FFA, as well as aligning our coaching philosophy with the FFA. Our goal is to produce players that will love the game and play this game for many, many years. In the last five years alone, we have produced more than 70 players who currently play at NPL level at NPL clubs.

In 2019, some of our teams’ successes include victory in Bendigo FC, Easter Cup and Kanga Cup as well as winning league division – with each victory being produced by playing possession-based football. Our seniors also won their state league divisions in 2018, gaining promotion.

We are now seeking interested players to continue to join our football family. We have openings in all sub Junior groups (Goalkick to U12) as well as Junior teams (U13 to U18.) We also seek players interested in playing senior football. Positions are open to both genders.

Instead of trials for U8 to U11, Chelsea runs Gala Days where the players can come down and trial at their age group. These dates will be announced very soon and will not clash with NPL Trials.
