On Wednesday 14th od September Bill Anderson Reserve lit up when Kemps Creek United Soccer Club hosted an official opening event for their recently completed floodlighting, seating, awning, and scoreboard projects.
Club members were joined by the Hon. Tanya Davies State MP for Mulgoa, Councillor Charishma Kaliyanda from Liverpool City Council, Pierre Comis representing Sport Australia and members of the Southern Districts Soccer Football Association including its President Andy Favaloro and former Socceroo and Sydney FC player Nick Carle.
In the past year, the Club has benefitted from several grants for the Federal and State Governments, as well as assistance from Liverpool City Council and Southern Districts to upgrade and improve community facilities at its Kemps Creek venue.
Club President Ross Maiorana highlighting the importance of the event. “This function is very important to our Club as it provides us with an opportunity to bring together a number of key stakeholders who have worked with the Club in delivering some wonderful facilities,” he said.
“These facilities would not be possible without the support and funding assistance from our partners, the NSW Government, the Federal Government’s Sport Australia, Liverpool City Council and of course Southern Districts,” Maiorana added.
The evening culminated with several of the Club’s junior players partaking in mini games, followed by the main game featuring a female walking football match.
On Wednesday 14th of August from 6pm Kemps Creek United Soccer Club will be hosting an event to acknowledge the funding received by the Club for capital works at Bill anderson Reserve.

Last weekend marked the final round in this year’s Southern Districts competition rounds for the 2019 season.
Coming into these fixtures, 5 Kemps Creek teams had already secured the minor premiership in their respective competitions,
Premier League First Grade Premier League Reserve Grade All Age Division 3 Under 17-1 Boys U16-2 Girls All snaring first place on the ladder. This weekend they were joined by the U13-1 Boys U14-1 Boys U21 Ladies The U15-2 Boys had their hand on the minor premiership until the final minute of play when a Liverpool City Robins equaliser on Saturday denied them the top spot by a solitary point.
Overall, 17 of the 18 Kemps Creek United competition teams qualified for the semi-finals, a club record.
The greatest comeback going to Aaron Walsh’s U12-2 Boys who were sitting last without a single point midway through the competition, only to rally into 4th spot on the back of a miraculous turnaround.
We wish all 17 competing team the very best this weekend as they continue their quest for even more glory.
The 2019 season has seen many new records and achievements set for the Kemps Creek United Soccer Club.
Record registration numbers, entry into some of Australia’s most notable and recognised football competitions and an avalanche of matches has seen the club continue to grow from strength to strength.
With some 500 players and officials, comprising 34 teams in 2019, the club’s registration numbers have again hit a new high and while the footballing structure has plenty to account for in drawing this popularity, the club’s facilities have too been constantly evolving, much on the back of some vital funding injections from both the Federal and State Governments.
A $50,000 grant from Sport Australia’s Community Sport Infrastructure funding program has resulted in upgraded floodlighting on the main field at Bill Anderson Reserve.
What has transpired since their recent installation has seen the Club compete in and host its first ever FFA Cup matches.
The FFA Cup is Australia’s largest football tournament involving nearly 750 teams from grassroots level all the way through to the A-League.
The two FFA Cup fixtures drew crowds of 4-500 people, unheralded for the club on the outskirts of Liverpool, particularly for a mid-week fixture. Then came the debut in the Cottam Cup, Australia’s oldest football tournament, and another successful run of outings.
But even at the grassroots level, the club has been inundated with matches from the local competition to State Cup fixtures.
Nearly every weeknight the club plays host to night matches. President Ross Maiorana explains how the club is almost a victim of its own success.
“Because of our high level facilities, we attract many matches to the ground. Our own Association games of course, but then there’s State Cup, Champion of Champions and this year FFA Cup and Cottam Cup,” he said.
“It’s great having all these games, we love it, but it does impact on our teams training schedule. We only have two and a half fields, so they need to squeeze in to train,” Maiorana said.
The Club has also recently received State Government grants to complete its awning structure, and will soon be installing a new scoreboard.
He also acknowledged the importance of receiving funding to assist with the improved capital infrastructure. “We are extremely grateful to all levels of Government for the funding assistance over the years. I believe we have the best facilities in the district as a result, which is my aim,” Maiorana added.
