History

This section of www.bonnetbayfc.com is devoted to capturing as much information as we can to show the development of BBFC since it was established in 1982.

If you explore you will find records for every player who ever registered with the club, details of major contributions by individuals, successes, a large pictorial library and much more.

Please send anything you have to add to us at info@bonnetbayfc.com. (Keep photos/ scans to a maximum height of 610 pixels and all files under 5Mb – we accept jpeg, pdf, excel, word file formats).

In 2011 BBFC celebrated its 30th season as it continued to move past many milestones:

  • Registrations exceeded 600 for the first time
  • All time registrations moved through the 2,000 mark
  • Player retention rates are very strong and people are encouraging their friends to come along showing most people enjoy the BBFC experience
  • From men’s and women’s 21s and over, BBFC is Sutherland Shire’s 5th largest club
  • A clear pathway now exists for our junior players as they move through to senior ranks with teams across a range of grades

Forty six teams comprised of 605 players represented “The Bay” in 2011. This was an increase of 56 players from the previous season. This 10% growth was achieved against a backdrop of close to breakeven growth across the association and again was achieved largely through the 18 to 25 year age groups in both male and female teams. BBFC has certainly shed the little brother tag with our player numbers from men’s and women’s 21s and up now only bettered by Lilli Pilli, Gymea, Menai and GeorgesRiver.

Across the top senior grades BBFC was represented in men’s PL1, AL2, AL4, 21A & 21B as well as women’s WSA(x2), WSB, W21A and W21B. This clear progression through the grades provides pathways for our aspiring male and female players. No other club was as well represented across all the leading male and female divisions.

With further teams in men’s AL7, AL11, AL12 & AL15 and women’s G the club was for the first time able to accommodate all of the players moving through from 21s to seniors in a team that suited their skill level and aspirations. We also saw a number of players returning who we could not find a place for in previous seasons.

The club fielded junior men’s teams in 12B, 13C, 16C & 18E. BBFC was strongly represented in junior women’s with teams in 12A, 12B, 14B(x2), 16A and 18B. Small sided teams were fielded in every age group from 6s to 11s again with a good representation of girls. The club was also represented by 3 men’s over 35 teams and one over 45s team as well as 2 women’s over 30 sides. Looking ahead we need to focus on having a junior team for everyone just as we have achieved in the senior ranks.
