Football Mid North Coast

FMNC formed in 2005 through the amalgamation of Oxley Soccer Association and Manning District Soccer Association. FMNC covers an area from Stuarts Point in the north to Bulahdelah in the south and Gloucester in the west.

There is currently 31 member clubs within FMNC. Club details can be found on the Club Contacts page.

Oxley Soccer Association

The Oxley Soccer Association was founded in 1995 by the amalgamation of the Hastings and Macleay Valley Soccer Associations.

We are currently in the process of adding historical data to the website.
We welcome any contributions or memorabilia such as photo’s etc.

Please contact via email: admin@footballmidnorthcoast.com

Manning District Soccer Association

The history books are a little thin for the Manning District Soccer Association but Taree’s Clive Bloomfield reckons junior competitions started in the area in the late 1960s and early 70s.

The two driving forces behind the sport were Phil Kirkby and Barry Melville.

A senior competition – which included just three teams, Mitchells Island, Taree and Wauchope – probably got underway in 1971.

Clive says that former Wauchope High School teacher Harry Klose got a local team together and the three team competition started with some tough matches.

With the demise of the Mitchells Island team, most of the players shirted allegiances to the Taree club while Old Bar was the next long term club to form in around 1975. Lansdowne soon followed in the late 1970s.

OUR PROMISE

For the Game. For the Zone.
Our extended Zone is a place rich in natural beauty and cultural diversity. FMNC now has a responsibility to reach out and touch the community, using football as a symbol of working together and promoting a sense of fair play and harmony.

Only with the unwavering dedication of every FMNC team member, every member association and every business partner can football in all its forms contribute to achieving FMNC’s goals at a high level by protecting standards, encouraging competition and promoting solidarity in the world game.

For the Game. For our Community.”

OUR MISSION

‘Develop the game, touch the community, build a better future’.

Played by millions around the world, football is the heart and soul of FMNC and as a local guardian of this most cherished game, we have a great responsibility. This responsibility does not end with organizing the local competitions and the various other inter Zone and Inter State competitions; it extends to safeguarding the Laws of the Game, developing the game around the zone. This is what we believe is the very essence of fair play and solidarity.

We see it as our mission to contribute towards building a better future for the stakeholders, the players, volunteers, officials, spectators or any associated persons by using the power and popularity of football. This mission gives meaning and direction to each and every activity that FMNC is involved in – football being an integrated part of our society.

OUR APPROACH

Develop the game. Improve the game of football constantly and promote it locally in the light of its unifying, educational, cultural and humanitarian values, particularly through youth and development programmes. Football development means investing in people and society at large. Football is a school of life.

Build a better future. Football is no longer considered merely a global sport, but also as unifying force whose virtues can make an important contribution to society. We use the power of football as a tool for social and human development, by strengthening the work of initiatives around the zone to support local communities in the areas of social integration, education and more.

WHAT WE STAND FOR

Our core values of authenticity, unity, performance and integrity are at the very heart of who we are.

Authenticity. We believe that football must remain a simple, beautiful game played by, enjoyed by and touching the lives of all people far and wide.

Unity. We believe it is FMNC’s responsibility to foster unity within the football community and to use football to promote solidarity, regardless of gender, ethnic background, disability, faith or culture.

Performance. We believe that FMNC must strive to deliver a football experience of the highest quality possible given our resources and as the best possible experience, be it as a player, as a spectacle, or as a social enabler throughout the zone.

Integrity. We believe that, just as the game itself, FMNC must be a model of fair play, tolerance, sportsmanship and transparency.

A CHANCE AND A CHALLENGE

‘For the Game. For the Zone’ reflects the core element of our mission and represents both a chance and a challenge: a chance for us to contribute to making a difference to people’s lives, and a challenge to balance this social element with our traditional competence of overseeing the rules of the game and organizing local competitions.

We see it as our duty to take on the social responsibility that comes hand in hand with our position as local caretakers at the heart of the world’s most loved sport.
