Undoubtedly the biggest name player ever to grace Beaumaris Reserve will be appearing for Beaumaris SC in 2018. In a massive coup for the club we are delighted to announce the signing of former Australian international, Melbourne Victory & much decorated NPL player KRISTIAN SARKIES.
After starting his career with South Melbourne, Sarkies played in the A-league Grand Final with Melbourne Victory, he scored his third goal for the club in his team's 6-0 thrashing of Adelaide in the 90th minute and scoring from long range. However it was upon collecting his championship medal that he made headlines around the country by kissing Australian Prime Minister John Howard on his bald head.
Sarkies was called up by coach Guus Hiddink to be part of the "train-on" squad leading up to Australia's appearance at the 2006 FIFA World Cup. He won his first cap in the dying minutes of Australia's 3-1 friendly win against Liechtenstein on 8 June 2006. He was then kept in Germany with the Socceroos after he was given a personal invitation from Guus Hiddink to stay with the team until after the first group match with Japan.
Sarkies has represented his country at all youth levels and was involved in Australia's qualifying campaign for the Beijing 2008 Olympics. The first game of this campaign was against Chinese Taipei at Hindmarsh Stadium on 7 February 2007. Australia won the match 11-0, with Sarkies scoring four goals.
Our senior coach Marcus Stergiopoulos commented “ We are excited to be able to bring a player of Kristian’s quality to the club & from my conversations with him he remains as competitive as ever & will bring a huge amount to the club both on & off the pitch”.
Kristian lives locally & is looking forward to having his young family enjoy the junior soccer program at the club. He is pictured above being welcomed by club president Joe Mottola

In what was a stellar year for our senior team, gaining promotion to State League 1 for the first time in the clubs history, not only was Toby Nowell the top goal scorer with a club record 25 goals in the season, he also won the League's top scorer award.
What's more, to cap off an outstanding year for Toby (his first at Beaumaris SC), we was voted the FFV State League 2 "Best & Fairest" winner for 2018 - a fantastic achievement! Toby is pictured proudly wearing his two medals.
Our Director of Football Steve Mautone will retire from BSC at the end of the 2017 season and the Committee want to express their thanks to Steve for his commitment and efforts to ensure the FFV curriculum of football is embedded and that our junior players have the best possible start in developing their skills whilst enjoying the beautiful game.
Steve’s will transition to our new Director of Football in the coming weeks and assist in prioritising and preparing for the 2018 season. Members of your Committee – Bec Hicks (Registrar), Mike Stone (Female Football Representative); Bruce Maclaren (Senior Football Representative) and President Joe Mottola met to interview and select from the candidates who applied for the role. We’re pleased to announce Tony Tsiakos has been appointed and he will join us to meet players, parents, coaches and team managers at our Junior Gala Day on Saturday 9 September.
The Director of Football role sets the tone and principles for our Junior section and we’re pleased that Tony has excellent credentials. He is keen to get to know all coaches and players and build on the platform already established and says:
I’m excited for the 2018 season ahead, and to be working with each and every one of you. I’m also delighted to join a humble but very well regarded club at Beaumaris and to join the BSC family. I’m impressed by what I have seen so far and can’t wait to build on this program and take our football development curriculum further. My vision is clear for BSC & I’m working with Steve to ensure to a smooth transition continuing the excellent work he has done.
For those of you that don’t know me, my recent background was as Football Director at the National Premier League club Bentleigh Greens over 8 years implementing the FFV Curriculum there and coaching at both Senior & Junior level. I have completed my Youth and Senior B & C Licences. This year I was Technical Director and coached the U14 A team at Bayside Argonauts. My philosophy is about teaching possession football with players being comfortable on the ball allowing them to confidently pass “from the back” until a shooting opportunity is made. I will be working closely with all BSC coaches and will also concentrate on a 6 week skills development cycle in our training sessions. We will use a Discovery Phase for beginners and a Skill Acquisition programme to focus on the four core skills every player can achieve:
For our older juniors we move to Game Training preparing them for competitive senior football by applying personal ball skills with functional game skills in a team setting. This develops tactical awareness, decision making and perception using game situations in training. I urge you all to introduce yourself to me and shout out if you would like to have a chat. My ear is always available. Best of luck to all the players and teams for the remainder of the 2017 season. Go Beauy!

Beaumaris Campus of Sandringham Secondary College
Beaumaris SC has been working with the State Government and the MCC Foundation since 2014 on ensuring the new education facility at the Beaumaris campus of Sandringham Secondary College provides for FFA approved completion standard facilities for junior and senior football. David Richards, VP of BSC, has ensured that the development provides for juniors and seniors, male and female, including changing and canteen facilities for all.
“This is a game changer for BSC” said David “as it will provide for training and playing facilities throughout the year, 4 nights per week and at weekends, and during the school holiday period, meaning we can offer all our members the facilities they deserve.”
BSC were instrumental in getting the grass soccer facility installed in 2005 and this has been key to providing a suitable playing facility for our juniors, but restricted because of the lack of lighting and changing facilities. Whilst there is still much work to be done to have the facility ready for January 2018 we expect it to be available and that it will increase membership demand as it takes shape. Preference for registrations in 2018 will be given to those members registered in 2017.
We encourage all members to go to link attached to add your comments on the need to provide adequate facilities for all in the community as part of this $20m development
