City about community
By Michael DuVe’ (KCSC vice president)
IN APRIL this year, Korumburra City Soccer Club,
joined the Melbourne City FC/City Clubs program.
Since joining the program, KCSC has taken part in
Junior Clinics, played a mini roo halftime game and
will play a role in February at the final Melbourne derby
in front of a packed AAMI Park.
I was also chosen to award the man of the match
award when Melbourne City hosted Perth Glory on
November 27 and Dave Hurst and myself attended the
Manchester City Trophy Tour earlier this year which
included a talk from Mark Williams who was a goal
keeper for Manchester in the 80s.
Mark spoke about the community programs he was
involved in at Manchester City with the less fortunate
people that live in their community and how much im-
pact and knowledge was gained from the people who
lived on the harsher side of reality.
Manchester City learnt that to be successful, you need
to involve everyone that’s a part of your community or
team and that attitude rewarded their club.

City also asked people at the trophy tour, what they
could do for Melbourne City in return.

national club like City? Simple.
Let South Gippsland know that MCFC is already
reaching out to our area and teaching us to look after
everyone in our community as it will look after you in
return, so I hope our club has raised City’s profile and
given something back to them for teaching us this im-
This also presents an opportunity for KCSC to invite
all people in our community to become involved with
soccer in South Gippsland at KCSC and also anyone
who is looking to play or coach in 2016, come and join
in with a club that shares City’s attitude towards the
