BUJSC Family Members

This month for the Juice club newsletter we wanted to have a chat to the families within the club who have both parents and children playing in teams for BUJSC.

Alex & Lincoln Worrall

Alex and his son, Lincoln.
How long have you each been playing soccer?

Alex: I've been playing soccer since I was very young. This will be my 31st year playing soccer!

Lincoln: This is my first season playing soccer and i'm in the Under 6's.

What are your fondest memories of playing soccer?

Alex: Playing in the same team as my brothers and winning the league with Tea Tree Gully soccer club.

Lincoln: Getting my first goal on the weekend with my team

What is it that you each enjoy about soccer?

Alex: I like being at a club with good blokes like those at Barossa United and enjoy having a laugh with everyone. The exercise and keeping a 'little bit' fit is always good!

Lincoln: Having fun with my teammates. Having Dad as my coach.

What positions do you play in and what positions do you prefer the most?

Alex: Currently play in central midfield and I prefer to play in attacking positions. I played a lot in defence growing up.

Lincoln: I like playing in goals! We play in different positions all the time so that we can try them all out. I like playing in goals though because you get the most rest.

Where do you see yourself and soccer in the future?

Alex: I would like to keep playing for as long as I can and I should be able to for a while yet. Being co-coach of the Under 6's has been great and I would like to continue coaching Lincoln's teams as he keeps playing.

Michael & Thomas Schild

Michael and his son, Thomas.
How long have you each been playing soccer?

Thomas: 2 years

Michael: On and off over the last 28 years.

What are your fondest memories of playing soccer?

Thomas: Playing my first game, kicking my first goal and having fun with my friends.

Michael: Playing with mates as a junior in the rain and hail in the Adelaide Hills league. Also playing for UNISA in Adelaide, where I played with guys from all over the world, representing good times with a great bunch of blokes and a great learning experience about why soccer is the world game. Lastly a day out I had against Flinders Uni scoring 9 goals in a game.

What is it that you each enjoy about soccer?

Thomas: Playing in different positions and learning different skills with my team mates.

Michael: I enjoy the team aspect, the technical skill and being able to go out and have a kick with mates.

What positions do you play in and what positions do you prefer the most?

Thomas: All positions and my favourite position is midfield.

Michael: I started in the juniors as a left winger and have played pretty everywhere as a striker, defender and midfielder, now that I am getting a bit older I currently play centre back or sweeper.

Where do you see yourself and soccer in the future?

Thomas: Keep playing and improving my skills.

Michael: I really enjoy having a positive impact on the players I coach, so I see myself continuing to be involved in coaching and helping to grow the club.

Suzanne, Ebony, Joel and Noah Halman

How long have you each been playing soccer?

Suzanne: This is my 3rd season

Joel: This is my 15th season – all with Barossa United

Ebony: This is my 10th season

Noah: 3rd season plus a program for preschoolers run when I was 4 (and playing on the sidelines since I could crawl)

What are your fondest memories of playing soccer?

Suzanne: Getting to run on the park with my friends, and occasionally even with my daughter.

Joel: Getting to the Challenge Cup semi-final and Runners-up for the championship. We had a team which stuck together for years under the great Grant Bell. I also remember playing the first ever under-lights home game (I think) my memory says we won against the odds.

Ebony: Playing night games. I remember beating Elizabeth Downs in the rain, despite their bad attitude – our team played brilliantly. I also enjoy winning against the other Barossa team.

Noah: My first goal was great!

What is it that you each enjoy about soccer?

Suzanne: It is great to be part of a team sport. The club is really accepting of all people and all abilities. We have fun and we enjoy it when we succeed. It is a great feeling.

Joel: I enjoy the physicality and exercise. I enjoy being part of a team, especially when we share success together.

Ebony: I enjoy the supportive team environment. We are great mates and I get to play with my friends. I enjoy being able to run around and be part of a team. I have made great friends through soccer.

Noah: That I get to run around, kick the ball and sometimes kick goals. I like being with my friends.

What positions do you play in and what positions do you prefer the most?

Suzanne: I normally play either upfront, or in midfield. I am just as happy to play either.

Joel: Centre defence or centre midfield

Ebony: I usually play defence. My favourite position is centre defence.

Noah: I play in all positions, I prefer midfield or striker.

Where do you see yourself and soccer in the future?

Suzanne: I am in it for the fun and camaraderie. I started the game later than most people would, I guess – who knows?

Joel: I love the game of soccer. Wherever life takes me, I hope soccer is a part of it.

Ebony: I would love to keep playing soccer. Playing professionally would be amazing. If I played until I am my mum’s age….well I guess I have a fair few years to go!

Noah: I want to keep playing for Barossa United.

Beyond Blue Coast Trek Cake Stall

Last weekend a group of keen bakers and held a fundraising stall at the club to raise funds for their Coast Trek, which raises funds for Beyond Blue. Their supreme spread of cupcakes, muffins and slices raise $471 over the day. They are very grateful for everyone's encouragement and support.

In September, the team is taking part in the major fundraiser - the Adelaide Coastrek, where they will trek 30km. (That is the equivelant of walking around a maximum sized soccer pitch 71 times)

If anyone was unable to get to the cake stall but wanted to make a donation to the wonderful work that Beyond Blue do, please click on to the link below.
