GUFC History - The Beginning

GUFC History - The Beginning

Excerpt from GYMEA, 'Reflections' booklet
- opening of Harrie Denning Soccer Centre
 

Gymea Soccer Club commenced as Gymea Sports Club, which included soccer, rugby league, cricket, netball, athletics.  The first meeting for the Soccer Club was held in February 1960 with the elected officers being Cyril O'Neal as President, Ken Williams as Secretary and Bill Taylor as Treasurer. Seven teams were entered with the Sutherland Association.

Once the season commenced, the Committee ran into the problem that they had to provide transport as there were not many cars amongst the parents, but we had people that were willing to run the boys from one field to another, come back, pick up another, load and distribute them around the area right throughout the day.

We found it strange, in many respects, that the Association didn't allocate many games to the home ground. It was later discovered that it was due to the state of the field. After much persuasion and debate the Junior Soccer Association saw our problem and allocated games to the field.

"International Soccer at Gymea" from 1990 Yearbook
International soccer returned to Gymea Oval on Friday 27th July 1990 when the touring U.S.A. Eagles Under 14 team was taken on by a combined Under 14 Gymea team.
The match played on a heavy ground after torrential rain stopped one hour before the match was due to start and the despair of the two teams of boys was lifted after a fear that the match would be washed out.
With the score at 3 all five minutes before time it seemed a fair result but Gymea had other ideas and scored the winning goal only moments before the final whistle. After the match the Club in conjunction with the Under 14 parents put on a barbeque for all who attended before the visitors were billeted out for the night.
Apparently Gymea was the only Club to offer billets to the visitors who came from Hollywood area in California and made a three week tour of Australian Eastern States.
Wanda Surf Life Saving Club organised to open their doors to the boys from both teams on the Saturday and put on a display of their Inflatable Rubber Boats and how they are used in surf rescues.
We trust the Eagles will remember their visit to Gymea and the Sutherland Shire!
