This weekend was the fourth Skills Acquisition Festival for 2014. South Hobart Football Club was so proud to have 10 teams entered over the weekend. Approximately 90 children joining together to represent SHFC. Fabulous!
On Saturday morning at Warrior Park South Hobart FC will play a practice match against Olympia Warriors. The game will kick off at 10.30am. Both teams are back into training and South Hobart coach Ken Morton and Olympia coach Glenn McNeill were keen to get their players playing in a competitive match.
Pre season training commenced last night for South Hobart FC at Cornelian Bay. The South players were eased back into training under the watchful eye of the coaching staff Ken Morton, Peter Savill, Max Clarke and Technical Director Chris Oddie. The next session will be on Saturday morning.
The Summer holidays are less than four weeks away and South Hobart FC will be hosting our successful (and fun) football clinics in January 2015—powered by our player development partner Morton's Soccer School. All boys and girls aged 4 to 12 are welcome regardless of skill level. You do not need to be currently associated with South Hobart FC or in one of the MSS programmes to participate

South Hobart goal keeper Kane Pierce has re-signed for another season at the club and the club couldn't be more delighted.
Kane who has been chased by a big mainland club has committed his future to South again for 2015. He became first choice goal keeper at the start of the 2014 season. He is a brilliant shot stopper, a keeper who commanded his area and dominated players in front of him and was instrumental to South's success.
