Bulls on charge to embrace new Ipswich era

THE Ipswich City Bulls are set to stampede into 2013 with a number of exciting changes.

The Brassall-based club has a new committee, new logo and first under-13 BJL teams in a number of years.

There will also be a youth team this season.

"We are embracing the new era of football in Ipswich," club secretary Liz Ridley said.

"With the introduction of the Australian Premier League this season, it has left the Bulls in an exciting position as one of the founding members of the IFA (Ipswich Football Association) and 100% behind the newly formed Western Pride.

The new pathways for the kids of Ipswich puts the club in the best position to help them either reach their full potential and dreams or just play for the fun.

Ridley is joined on the committee by assistant secretary Jessica Ridley, treasurer Gordan Reeves, senior men's representative Dan Burnell and junior women's co-ordinator Tenieka Armitage.

Ridley said the new committee was proud of all the club's players that have been selected to represent Western Pride in its foundation season.

The Bulls senior men's team will contest the 2013 Capital League 2 competition, with a Reserve grade, youth team and at least two metro divisional sides.

The Bulls women will field at least two teams in 2013, in division 3 and 5.

Ridley said the club will enter a division 1 team if enough players were available.

"It's exciting times with a youth team for the over 18-20s and under-13 BJL team," Ridley said.

"Both of these are to trial in the second week of January with a director of coaching assigned this year to help develop both coaches and players."

New sponsorship packages are available to anyone wanting to be a part of the Bulls' new image.

Ridley said players from three to 40-plus were welcome to join the club.

Registration will include games shorts, new designed club shirt and socks and a boot bag for the juniors.

Registration days for all age groups are planned at the Sutton Park clubhouse at Brasssall on February 2 and 9, from 9am-2pm.

A playing strip is being designed for teams from under-6 to under-16.
