MAGPIES FOOTBALL CLUB

Magpies FC is run by a strong, well represented and experienced management committee, who volunteer their time and energy to support the players and community, with another 50 plus volunteer coaches and managers at all levels of play.

While also catering for all age groups, the club has a huge focus on the youth contingent. They represent a large part of why the club exists. They are a large part of what we do today, and will play a vital role in where we go tomorrow as a club. For our juniors, Magpies FC is dedicated to providing a positive soccer experience for children of all skill levels between the ages of 5 and 15. Being involved in our youth soccer program draws players, parents, coaches, and the community together into one big “family”, centred around a common love for the game. Providing an active, healthy outlet for our children is also vital to their social development and personal growth. It is with this vision in mind that the club will move forward to develop successful soccer players both on and off the field. It is hoped that our investment of time and energy into providing our youth with the best possible soccer experience will pay dividends in the future the Magpies FC family together for many years to come, where upon the youth of today will take over the reigns and guide the club to greater future success. Sponsorship funds will play a huge part in helping us to achieve this vision.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY 2024

CYNTHY MACGROARTY

Meet Cynthy, a manager extraordinaire and a driving force of Magpies women’s football at Magpies Football Club. Her behind-the-scenes efforts are nothing short of amazing, making her a cherished asset.

Beyond her regular managerial duties, Cynthy has taken on the crucial role of ‘Females in Sport Coordinator’ for the past two seasons. A passionate advocate for gender equality in football, she is not just a manager, but a trailblazer dedicated to bridging the gap between senior women’s football and junior girls’ football. As a senior women’s player herself, Cynthy understands the importance of fostering a supportive environment for the next generation of female athletes.

Cynthy’s dedication has led to the creation of girls-only teams, with plans for full-time teams in the upcoming year. Currently, young girls train and play alongside boys, but Cynthy is working tirelessly to enhance the Females in Football department, ensuring that girls have their own space to thrive and play. Her efforts extend beyond the field, where she brings senior players to support and encourage the younger generation.

Her inspiration is drawn from various sources, with her mum’s unconditional love serving as a foundation into adulthood. Erin Mulherin and Barbara Lawrence’s advice about leadership has empowered Cynthy to lead in ways that resonate with her, regardless of titles or positions.

Cynthy’s biggest inspiration, however, comes from her daughter. Despite facing a critical blood condition last year, her daughter’s passion and resilience shone through. Cynthy found strength in witnessing her daughter’s determination, driving hours to sit on the sidelines and support her teammates, showcasing the true spirit of sportsmanship.

On International Women’s Day, Cynthy’s message is clear: “Hold each other up, support each other. When women come together, we are capable of great things.” She values organisations that champion the cause of women and girls, believing that the future holds even greater accomplishments as we unite and uplift one another.
