Message from Latrobe Valley Soccer League President Mr Allan Roberts

Firstly, can I thank the tournament major sponsors, AGL, Destination Gippsland, Latrobe City and from an LVSL perspective Endeavour Petroleum for assisting to get this event off the ground.

I would like to give a big thanks to Craig Fathers - tournament director who has put in tireless hours to bring this event to Gippsland and from a league perspective we cannot wait to sit down again in a few weeks and look towards 2023. It has been a pleasure to work with you.

To the LVSL players and coaches, thank you for giving your time at short notice and I know it has been an eye opening experience - but it has demonstrated that there is an appetite for senior rep football again in Gippsland and I make this pledge that it won't be the last time we put senior squads on the park.

To the host clubs, ELSC and Falcons 2000 I would like to thank you both for your hospitality over the course of the 3 days, it has been greatly appreciated.

The LVSL would like to pass on best wishes and good luck to ELSC, MSC and MVFC for the starts of your regular seasons in the coming weeks.

I would like to encourage the Gippsland soccer community to continue to support events such as these, if we want to obtain funding for the development of football facilities and our game in Gippsland, we must show that we can support these events and ensure that our sport contributes to the local community and plays a major part in attracting events to Gippsland.

Once again, thank you to all and safe travels home.

Allan Roberts - LVSL President.
