The club side starts its spring 2013 season on the road today against longtime rival White Plains. It’s been a while since the 2 sides have played against each other. Albany will be traveling with 35 players down to White Plains High School. The strong recruiting continues as 10 new Knicks will be on debut. If not for the holiday weekend and work commitments the club would easily be traveling with 45 plus. The “club first ethos” is paying off. It will be a tough outing as White Plains already has some games under their belt and play in Division I, but the Knicks are hoping to make the trip back up the thruway with 2 hard fought wins.
The club's Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 12th at the Victory Cafe, 2nd floor, at 6:30. All club member should attend this function as it drives the future of our club.
Agenda will include electing two (2) new Executive Board members, new Executive Committee members ( Director, President, Vice President and Club Treasurer) plus a detailed financial report of the clubs economic standing, new NERFU issues and an opportunity for you as Club members to put forth your ideas and concerns about the club.
If you have any questions and/or concerns, please feel free to reach out to club president Charles Colley.
The coed indoor sessions will start on the Wednesday, the 9th of January 2013 @ 9,45pm and are open to everyone, so please invite friends and anyone interested in playing. The sessions will be held at Afrims Soccer Center in Colonie (636 Albany Shaker Road, (518) 438-3131).
