Simon “Simmo” Minson Fundraiser

If you can’t attend on the 12th you can still donate on this link https://www.mycause.com.au/page/82022/simonminson

We'd love to reach our fundraising target for the family, and anything above that we will donating to Cystic Fibrosis Australia.

1st September

RIP Simon “Simmo” Minson

A great friend of the Heathmont Football Club, Simon Minson, sadly passed away on September 1 in Bangkok. 'Simmo' fell ill on a trip to Vietnam with mates from his school days at Vermont Secondary College, his condition deteriorated and his Mum and Dad flew over to be with their son. Over the weekend Simon had been transferred to Bangkok by medivac so that his request for no medical action would be met.  

Simmo was 22 years old, he started playing football at the Jets Juniors in the Under 13’s and then moved to the Senior Club playing in the Colts and Reserves. When he wasn't playing, he was the first to put up his hand to help out wherever possible.

The Heathmont Football Club has not and will not see a stronger person come through its doors. Simon had Cystic Fibrosis, a condition he never let get in the way of living life to the fullest. 

One of our coaches nicknamed Simmo “the boy in the bubble”, just needed a bit of protection – Simmo did not need protection, he just wanted to be one of the boys.

Our sincere condolences go out to Simon’s family, friends and teammates.

RIP Simmo.

The Heathmont Football Club is asking for donations of goods and services that we can auction at a fundraising event on Friday September 12 at HE Parker reserve clubrooms at 7pm. Entry to the night will be $25.00 and all money raised on the night will go to the Minson family. As he was overseas there will be a financial burden on the family that we want to ease as much as possible.

Facebook event is up https://www.facebook.com/events/770024603061955                                                

If you can’t attend on the 12th you can donate on this link https://www.mycause.com.au/page/82022/simonminson

We'd love to reach our fundraising target for the family, and anything above that we'd be happy to give to Cystic Fibrosis Australia.

Pre Season Training Resumes this Wednesday

Pre season training recommences for seniors and U19’s at 6.00pm Wednesday 22nd January at Heathmont College.

Well done to the group who committed to the pre-Christmas training phase. This group was well led by our leaders in Dylan, Robbie and Sinders. Rourkey and Staf were impressed by the competitiveness and enthusiasm demonstrated by all who attended, including a number of new recruits.

For the ones who are yet to commit to the training regime, Wednesday is the time to show everyone that YOU are serious in supporting the club's future ambitions. The reality is that we are six weeks away from the first competitive practice match and trust me, you don't want to be playing catch up in the two weeks before during Staf’s running drills! You'll be amazed with effort, quality time together and some fun, the bond it can produce.

We are not asking for every player to be at every session. As always, we will be very understanding of each individual’s circumstances and life outside of the club. But once YOU make the effort and get to training you will quickly realise that if we are all committed to the one goal, we have the talent to match it with anyone!

Get on board now as the Heathmont Football Club embarks on its journey to achieve its goals in season 2014. We hope to see a lot of familiar (and new) faces at Wednesday’s session and beyond!

Go Jets!
