Soccer Club in Cairns – Edge Hill United Football Club

Welcome to the best Football Club in Cairns

 

·     EDGE HILL UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB - THE FRIENDLY CLUB since 1967.

EHUFCs Goal is to provide a fun, family orientated sporting club that encourages healthy living, participation and making new friends while playing in a team environment, learning and improving their skills in the world game. 

 

Welcome to the Official EDGE HILL UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB website.  Home of the Mighty Tigers. 

EHUFC IS A NOT FOR PROFIT COMMUNITY ORGANISATION.

 

EHUFC is a Level 2 accredited "GOOD SPORTS CLUB" and Level One in the FFAs "National Club Accreditation Scheme (NCAS)". We have also achieved level 4 with the Cairns Regional Councils "Go Clubs" accreditation scheme.

 

The 2015 committee would like to welcome all new players and former players along with all of the parents and carers to the Edge Hill United Football Club.

We cater for players from 3yrs old (Subway Squirts) to senior men’s and ladies teams and all the juniors in between. As the only inner city Senior Football Club in Cairns we have a very multi cultural playing group.  With many players from the UK and Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, North Africa and of course Australia.  We welcome any players who are keen to play a season of football in Cairns.

 

HISTORY - EHUFC has a proud and successful 49 year history.  EHUFC have generated some fantastic players over the years with the likes of former Socceroo Coach and player Frank Farina, former Socceroo player and current Brisbane Roar Vice Captain Shane Stefanutto along with current Socceroo and Perth Glory Captain Michael Thwaite all having played for Edge Hill.

 

MAJOR PROJECTS IN 2016 - EHUFC would like to thank the Queensland State Government for their support in granting EHUFC with $100 000 for the lighting upgrade on Field 2 and Field 3.  EHUFC would also like to thank the Cairns Regional Council for their support and funding of the new toilets and amenities block due to be built between Field 1 and Field 2 in 2016. These two major projects are expected to be completed by June 2016 and will continue to help the EHUFC move forward. This will provide a fantastic facility for our current players and members and will be sure to attract more players to our game. This will also provide other sporting organisations an opportunity to utilise the facilities at Tiger Park to turn this facility into a truly multi purpose sporting venue.

COACHING   - EHUFC is excited and proud to announce Robert Wales as the New Head Coach for 2016.  Rob has been at the club for over 10 years and in 2011 coached the Premier Men's team to the Quadruple, winning the Mareeba Cup, Premiership, Grand Final and Crad Evans. In 2015 Rob coached our Reserve Grade to the Finals and also coached the Under 12 EHUFC team to an undefeated season finishing with a Grand Final win.

In 2016 we aim to give every coach the tools to provide a great coaching session for her/his players. They will be encouraged to attend any coaching course available to pass on their knowledge to the players. Each coach will also have plenty of equipment (balls, cones, bibs, goals) to provide a quality training session for their players.

The EHUFC welcomes any new and previous coaches interested in coaching a team in the 2016 season. We are specifically looking for a Premier Ladies Coach for the 2016 season. Anyone interested in coaching can contact the President Glen Waddingham.

The EHUFC Ladies start training on the 27th of January also at Tiger Park from 6.00pm. We welcome any new female players to the club.  Any female players turning 15 in 2016 are eligible to play.

FEMALE FOOTBALL - The EHUFC currently has a large number of girls playing in mixed football from Under 6 through to Under 16 but with the introduction of the girls only competition we welcome any new junior girls who would like to join the EHUFC and have fun playing a great team sport.  

The EHUFC is also a very proud supporter of Ladies Football.  The EHUFC Premier Ladies team have been very successful with numerous premierships and Grand Finals trophies over the last 6 years.  2015 saw EHUFC field two senior ladies teams for the first time in its history with both teams winning the Premiership and Grand Final. A great sign ladies football is moving forward with EHUFC leading the way.
