Welcome to the Nightcliff Football Club
Welcome everyone to the 2012/13 NTFL season. Please have a look through our website to find the information you need.
Nightcliff Football Club is looking for great things this season and we are pretty excited with our new and current players.
This season our numbers have grown with the inclusion of the Under 12 division and already we have been able to field two teams due to large numbers in this division. All up we will have eleven teams participating this season and may have more due to the increase of players in our junior teams.
This season also sees the inclusion of our Youth Girls team, who will for the first time participate for the entire season in all round games. Good luck girls!
We also welcome all our sponsors, those who have been with us for the long haul and those who have joined us recently. We thank them for their generous support, so if you see any of them around the club this season, please thank them as their generousity is what allows us to operate so successfully
Thank you also to all the many volunteers old and new who have once again put their hand up to help out where needed. Without these fantastic people, and the many hours they give, the club and your teams simply would not be able to operate. Volunteers are still needed in all grades, so if you can cut oranges, do the time keeping, run water, wash jumpers or anything that may help, please go and see your team officials and let them know. You will be welcomed with open arms!
To all the players who make up our great club, good luck, play fair, put in the hard yards on the training track and you will be rewarded. We hope many of you will use this as a pathway to greater things.
Nightcliff Tigers and Wiyarla Tigers
On a recent work trip to Lajamanu, NFC Treasurer Tim Scott became aware of the very strong football culture that prevails in the daily lives of community members, male and female, young and old. Tim discovered there were 5 clubs in the Kiwiniyi District Football League, and many junior teams. One of the five clubs from Lajamanu and Kalkaringi competing in this competition is the Wiyarla Tigers, whose president is the head of the Local Reference Group, Peter Jingli.
Through Tim’s association with the Nightcliff Tigers in Darwin he soon struck up a friendship with a number of Lajamanu folk, including Peter Jingli who supports the Tigers. Having already sent a few of his old Nightcliff Tigers Club polo shirt’s to Wiyarla Tigers committee members, Tim was able to gift the Wiyarla Tigers with a complete set of Football Jumpers on behalf of the Nightcliff Football Club.
Tim attended the Wiyarla Tigers final training session before their Grand Final on the Saturday. He was met with much excitement and anticipation, as he handed over the Football Jumpers. Throughout the day, Tim had witnessed local woman and children preparing banners and signs in support of the local Tigers.
