Soccer club rejoins Premier League after 30 years

Woy Woy Football Club is about to re-enter Central Coast Football's Premier League competition for the first time in 30 years.

After a strong season in the Division One last year the soccer club is ready for the promotion.

Club president Mr Peter Chippindale said the club was raring and ready to go.

"Our promotion has energised our club and community.

"We even had a few tears from some of the old boys who played for the club back in the 90s and it's been just magic to see," Mr Chippindale said.

Mr Chippindale said the club was now focusing on regrowing its membership and making sure all their teams were ready for a big 2020 season.

"We currently have the cheapest junior membership of any club on the Central Coast.

"Kids can come and play football with the Roosters for as little as $55 this season," he said.

"For us, it's not as important that we have good players as it is to have good people.

"We want parents to feel good bringing their kids out and getting them kicking a ball.

"We are a family club built around community and giving players a chance to feel a part of something and that's what footy clubs should be about," Mr Chippindale said.

This year will also be the first since 1990 that all three of the Peninsula's soccer clubs will be in the Premier League together, with the Roosters set to go toe-to-toe with Umina United and Southern and Ettalong United once the competition gets underway from March 20.
