About me:

Deputy President; Functions Coordinator and Deputy Bar Manager

1998 – When my son Scott first started playing football as a 5 year old.

2015 – Was my first official year on the Committee, but I’ve always volunteered my services around the club, from line marking the pitches to assisting on Registration Days and working in the Canteen and Bar. I even coached Scott’s team for a number of years, which I really enjoyed and you never know, I may put my hand up when my grandchildren start playing at the club.

I am a die-hard Chelsea FC fan, and also Deputy President of the official Chelsea Supporters Club – Perth, WA.

I’ve always played central midfield, but in my later years I’ve moved up the field to the #10 position behind the striker (when I’m not injured).

Chelsea winning the 1970 FA Cup final against Leeds Utd (the game at which I started supporting Chelsea when I was 9 years old), closely followed by Chelsea winning the 2012 Champions League final against Bayern Munich.

John Terry slipping and missing the final penalty that would have won Chelsea the 2008 Champions League Final against Manchester United.

Bad or late tackles that could cause injuries.

One Love, One Club. I am loyal to the end and support the things I love with a passion, from my wife Dawn, and growing family to my Club (both professional and non-professional). Dawn and I are grandparents to Jasmine and Blake, which has opened a whole new world to us and we love every moment.

About me:

Mary Selby

Treasurer.

1969 when the Club first started.

Originally l retired in 1995 after serving on various positions. Decided to commit again in 2017

Perth Glory and Nottingham Forest, for my sins and because John does.

As Ann said - on the sideline with the other Gossie Grannies.

Our under 18s winning the league again in 2016.

Unnecessary rough tackles that cause serious injury.

John and I both retired some years ago and as life members of the club have enjoyed watching it grow.  We have two children, our son Dion is also a life member and daughter Kara who thinks she should be a life member by default as she spent the first 16 years of her life at the club nearly every day. We also have six grandkids, four of whom have played for the club at various times.

About 1995 during Gosnells/Kelmscott merger

This is my second time on the committee.  The first time was about 8 years.  This time it’s been about 5 years.

On the side of the pitch supporting our three Gosnells City State League teams with the rest of the Gossie Grannies!

When Southampton won back-to-back promotions to return to the Premier League

Southampton’s relegation from the Premier League and when Baggio missed that penalty in the 1994 World Cup; Gerrard’s infamous slip.

Retired and loving it!  Also do volunteer work at Wilkinson Homestead.  Thrilled that my grand-daughter started playing for GCFC under 6s in 2016 – and she’s still going!

After sustaining a significant injury (broken finger nail) while playing in the under 15s inter school carnival  which was being coached by my then boyfriend (and now husband of 29 years) I retired. I then became a "professional spectator" although I am in semi-retirement I have watch 3 generations of my family play soccer at Gosnells - my father-in-law (and  former club president), my husband (former player, coach and committee member) and my 3 sons who all still play for Gosnells. I am really looking forward to watch the 4th generation, my grandson, in a few years time

About me:

Peter Allen (aka Rooney)

Committee member, bar worker, coach of the Amateur Teams.

2000.

2014.

Everton FC.

Playing upfront these days ….. in front of the bar.

Euro 96 - I was 18, England were a great team and played some great football and, well since then, they have been nothing short of a bloody let down.

Seeing Liverpool come from 3-0 down in that Champions League final to AC Milan surrounded by reds - sickening.

Most people at the club know me as Rooney.  I loved playing for the club and I'm loving coaching the club at the moment but most of all I love having a pint in my hand winding up and having a laugh with all the colourful characters at the great club of Gozzy FC.
