We hope that you and your family are safe and healthy during these uncertain times especially now that it is starting to increase in our own back yard of the Georges River LGA.
With the latest updates to the health orders announced on Wednesday 28 July 2021, the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian announced that NSW restrictions will continue until at least 12.01am on Saturday 28 August 2021. Following the NSW Government announcement, the Football St George (“FSG”), Board, CEO, COVID Sub-committee, and Competition Secretary met via zoom conferencing on Thursday, 29 July 2021 to review recent developments. Given the NSW Government announcement, it would be fair to say that we must accept the reality of not being able to resume the 2021 Winter Competition.
As such it is with a heavy heart that we advise that the Football St George board has unanimously agreed that the remainder of the 2021 season be cancelled and that play will not resume.
A meeting with FSG and all clubs will take place next week to discuss further and following that meeting the our Committee will meet and discuss the next steps for our club and members and provided an update.

Carss Park FC Committee
Please find below training allocations for the 2021 season and map of training areas.
We ask that teams please stick to their allocated training times and have cleared their area so the team after them can start training for their allocated time.
If your team has not been allocated at spot please fill in this form so that we can make arrangements.
Teams are reminded to please stay out of the penalty area and goal mouth of all fields so that minimal wear and tear occurs.
Serving Our Football Community Since 1930
Carss Park FC was established in 1930 by a local prominent resident by the name of Charles Pirie. He approached Kogarah Council with the idea of commencing what was known as soccer for the children of the local community. Thus was born the great tradition of the maroon and white that continues to this day. Charles Pirie remains as our main ground, along with the midi and mini fields that so many Carss Park generations of players have grown up on, fostering a love of football and friendship.
Our Club Is Our Family
At Carss Park FC, we are very proud to provide a long & successful tradition of both park football to our local community and a pathway to further representative opportunities. We have a family friendly ethos based on fun, fitness, football & friendship. Whilst we aim to develop each individual’s skills to the best of their ability, team comaraderie and good sportsmanship towards own team and competitors is equally as important. These are lifelong skills which players will take with them across all areas of life long after they finish football.
