ROUND 7May 24th 11:34AM
ROUND 7 VS MOONEE VALLEY AT HOME
With a disciplined performance against East Sunbury the seniors had a solid win keeping the opposition goaless. This week we take on new flag favourites Moonee Valley who remain the only undefeated side in Division 2. With arguably the best two forwards in this division it will be a great measure to see how much we have improved. A huge crowd is expected to watch this game. Lets make sure we all get down there and get vocal in our support for the boys.
After a solid win last week the reserves come up against a strong Moonee Valley outfit. A crunch game for the reserves as a loss could make things tough in the race for a finals spot. With this importance placed on the result of this game I believe the boys can lift and pull off what will be an impressive win.
A great win for the under 18's last week against Pascoe Vale. This week they have a chance for back to back wins against Moonee Valley. With many new faces in the team, with a few playing their first season ever of competitive football, the improvement and enthusiasm is on the rise week by week. A win is expected to keep our position in the top four.

ROUND 5 FOOTBALLMay 10th 10:06AM
SENIORS V HILLSIDE
Big test for the seniors this week coming up against the undefeated and early flag favourites Hillside. After posting thier third win in a row against Coburg Districts last week the boys will be going into this game with a great deal of confidence. Another solid team performance could see the result going our way.
RESERVES V HILLSIDE
The reserves finally posted their first win last week after a strong four quarter performance against Coburg Districts. With some senior players coming back from injury places in the reserve side is becoming very competitive. With a very strong team selected this week the boys will be very confident up against the undefeated Hillside reserves team.
UNDER 18'S V HILLSIDE
With another great win last week the under 18's are slowly starting to gel. With new additions to the side and a great turn up at training this week the hard work is being put in. This week they come up against Hillside who are level on points with us, so a win is very important.

2013 Preseason newsNov 18th 3:32PM
That time of the year has come around again already. Preseason training. It seems like just last week that we were packing up our footy gear and throwing it in the cupboard for the offseason.
Seniors, Reserves and Under 18 training begins Monday 19th November 6pm on the bottom oval of Lakeside Reserve, Lakeside Dve. and will continue every Wednesday and Monday in the lead up to Christmas
What will happen onfield in season 2013 is unknown, but if we all pull together, get on the same page and train hard, the improvement will continue and the results will go our way.
Joel Ferguson is taking the reins again of the seniors, with Craig Micallef his able assistant. Anthony Murrell has stepped up to the reserves coaching role, taking over from his great mate, Steve Taleski, who did a fantastic job in 2012, but who wants to concentrate on playing in 2013. Tahan Rafei will remain in charge of the Under 18's.
We expect to see everyone at preseason training to continue building on the big steps forward taken in 2012.
Any players looking for a club to call home, Roxy FC is the place for you. Come on down and see it for yourself. We welcome all new players into the Roxy family.
