Dear NCC parents,
I was informed tonight of a serious incident that occurred at Mahoneys Reserve last Wednesday around 5:15pm. Fortunately, we did not have any of our members present as we had cancelled U14 training due to the thunderstorms.
The incident allegedly involved two groups of teenagers, which ended in a violent brawl and resulted in the local police being called.
The local police are investigating the incident further with some young soccer players recording the exchange on their phone during training. This may result in more police surveillance of the area, but I think it is an important reminder that we need to remain vigilant as parents, coaches and adults responsible for young people.
Further, if you arrive to training or games early please continue to supervise your child so they don’t roam around the precinct unattended, until the coach or responsible adult arrives.
Take care and do not hesitate to reach out if you have any other concerns.
