Message from the President - June 2020

As a committee we have worked tirelessly around the clock, side by side with out coaches and the EFNL to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic and still deliver a Premier division season.  As a Club we were disappointed with the outcome to abandon the 2020 season but we accept the decision handed down by the EFNL.

As a Club we are still investigating other avenues to potentially play some football in 2020, however our immediate focus has not shifted to our ultimate commitment to prepare our teams to contend for silverware in our maiden season in EFNL Premier Division in 2021 and beyond.

Our football club has earned our rightful position in Premier Division and will be making a fully tilt at strenthening our great club on and off field for 2021.

Our short term focus will be directed our our U19 Development squad.  Fortiuitously the YJFL and Beverley Hills JFC are in early discussions to hopefully manufacture a scenario that will see the U19 players be eligible to take the field in a 2020 season similar to the old U18 competition.  We see this as a great advantage to invest in our future stars and the development and transition of the current crop of talented Beverley Hills JFC Colts players.

I am extremely proud of the solid foundation Doncaster East Football Club has built and I can't wait to see our boys run out in our club colours whenever that will be.

Also, I implore all of you, if anyone would like to call and chat to me for whatever reason please feel free, we are an open book for any suggestions or concerns.

Go Lions!

Peter Sowersby
DEFC President
