Saigon gears up for 2010

Posted by Vietnam Swans on January 31, 2010

Saigon Prez, Derrin Limbrick says that, in Saigon, it's time to elect a new Committee and to get back on the training track.

Saigon President, Derrin Limbrick advises the troops that it’s now time to elect the Saigon Committee for 2010 – and announces when training will resume.


The time has come for the Club to put together our Committee for 2010.   We will be arranging a meeting to elect the new Committee on Wednesday 3rd February, 6 30 pm at Oasis Bar (behind the bus station across from Ben Thanh Market. ).  If you need more information just .

In 2010 the following positions will be open for nominations:

  • Saigon President
  • Saigon Treasurer
  • Communications manager
  • Social Coordinator
  • Membership coordinator

Plus we are also planning on introducing a new concept that involves a coaching committee instead of a single coach.  The idea being that a group of players will be responsible for organizing training drills and will also liaise with the Saigon President and Hanoi Coach for match day teams and tactics.

If you are interested in attending the meeting please confirm your attendance by .  If you are not able to attend but still wish to nominate either yourself or anyone else for any of the above positions, then please let me know and we will make sure that you are included during voting.

We will also have many other opportunities for people to be involved in the Club throughout the year, so, if the committee is not your thing but you are still interested in assisting at other times throughout the year, just let me know and I will keep you updated.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.


It is the time of year that I know you have all been waiting for!  Training will commence on Saturday 27th February at RMIT, District 7 (click for Google Map), at 2 30 pm sharp.  For those not in the know, we normally charge VND 50,000 per training session but, for any new comers, the first training is always free.  The Club will supply water and we normally go for a cleansing ale afterwards at the Tavern in Phu My Hung.

I am sure that everyone has been maintaining some level of fitness over the off season so a good run shouldn’t hurt any of us, right??

We will have a new approach to training this year that I am sure everyone will find fun and rewarding.  I hope to see all the old faces and lots of new ones on the 27th!

Ya hearin’ me!
