Melville City FC WSL Coach change

January 17, 2017 By: Penny Category: Club Noticeboard

Melville City FC. WSL Coaching Changes
I would like to announce the appointment of new head coach for our women’s 1st team. Renato Scarutto who comes very well-credentialed and has worked at several major clubs. With a background of more than 10 years at Fremantle United, Hammersley Rovers, Fremantle City and Back Packers. Renato is well positioned to take our young team forward and upward.
We hope you will all welcome Renato and provide the necessary support given to a newcomer at our great club.
Renato will be starting immediately so training on Thursday night will happen as normal at 6.15 – Alan Edwards Reserve, Kardinya, corner South St and North Lake Road.
I would also like to take the opportunity to sincerely thank our outgoing coach Gabby Walker Ortega, who stepped up when Melville needed her and gave our ladies teams her time and effort which translated to excellent results last year, gaining great respect in the WA football community.
As the 2017 football season rolls in I would like to remind you all that we are a strong community based club that relies heavily on our volunteers. So from the start of the season let’s show respect and support to each other and make 2017 one of the greatest years in Melville City football history.
Dave Kindness
President Melville City FC

AFTER 15 consecutive seasons without a single missed practice, departing coach Gary Crerie has been unveiled as the latest Melville City Football Club life member.

It is the first time life membership has been awarded to a coach who is not also part of the club’s committee and is reward for the long service Crerie has given to Melville City.

The retiring Crerie coached the women’s metropolitan squad and some of the current players have been playing for him for his whole 15-year tenure.

After coming closing to folding five years ago, the team has rebounded to come close to topping three separate divisions in consecutive years.

In 2012, the team struggled for numbers and played each week three players short.

After reaching out to friends and recruiting players who were in the team as juniors, the 2014 side won Division 3 to earn promotion, the following season finishing equal top in Division 2 and losing in the Metropolitan Cup semi-final.

Again promoted for 2016, Melville led Division 1 all season until a loss in the second last game of the year against bottom-side Kelmscott dropped City to second.

“The success of the team has been down to the players’ resilience, determination and good nature,” Crerie said.

“Football is a great team game, a reflection of life and fosters the ability to grow as community-minded people.

“It is also great exercise and amongst all this you won’t find a better bunch of women and girls anywhere.”

In leaving, Crerie praised his team’s spirit, its persistence, ability to learn and improve and tenacity to lead three different leagues in three years.

“We need some new players to top up the squad for 2017 and another successful year, we hope,” he said.

“It has been a great joy and experience for me to be a part of this team and to see these girls growing up and supporting the Melville City Football club and community.

“Some have volunteered over the years to coach juniors, join the club committees, fundraise and become role models representing their State and country.”
