Right at Home with Joondalup United


“It’s a great honour to have a sponsor like Right at Home re-joining the Joondalup United family.” “This is proof Joondalup United is on the right track and doing the best we can for our community through our football,” said club president Ghaz Ramli. The front-of shirt sponsorship will see our Amateur Premier side receive a brand new Adidas kit for both the first team and the reserves. Joondalup United is also looking forward to helping our community more, through frequent visits to family or age card residents and to help them out with their chores. “Our clients thoroughly enjoyed the volunteer day where JUFC visited them at home helping with gardening, decluttering, socialising and enjoy a cuppa. I know our clients would welcome another visit from the club!,” said Right at Home director Helen Green.

The sponsorship will also bring more job opportunities to club members and awareness about age care. The agreement was sealed on Tuesday at the Right at Home office in Currambine. Present were Right at Home directors Helen and Steve Green, President Ramli and player-coach Neil Sherwin (First Team) and Joel Wigglesworth (Reserves).

“Use the Forte” – JUFC confirms Official Physiotherapy partner for 2022

JOONDALUP UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB is proud to announce our partnership with Forte Physiotherapy for the 2022 season.

The partnership will see Joondalup United members for all age groups and levels benefit with discounted treatment by highly qualified and experienced physiotherapists.

Members will also benefit with the access to state-of-the-art technology Alter G (Anti-Gravity Treadmill) as part of the agreement.

 

This benefit is eligible to all registered players and their family members. It is also part of the club recognising the importance of injury management for all the teams.

“In sports, or football in this case, injuries are common. However, recovery and rehabilitation for injuries vary from one to another,” said club President Ghaz Ramli.

“Although we can’t prevent it, as a community club we want to ensure our members have the assistance they need so they can get back on their feet quick so it has minimum effect on their job or school, and also to get them back onto the pitch as soon as possible.”

“In the modern game, sports rehabilitation is important. Injuries play a big role for player availability which makes the physio role an important one,” said Ramli, who also acknowledged the three-man physio-team led by Henry Hung that is currently overlooking State team players.

Nic and Bucks make the move to Amateurs

JOONDALUP UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB is proud to announce the movement of two 2021 Top 4 Cup champions State League Division 1 players to our Amateur side for the 2022 season.

Forwards Adam Buckley and Nic Maplestone will be lining up on Sundays this season, which is a testament to the progression ethos the club upholds to.

Nic Maplestone in action for the State side last season

With a club built on the mostly UK migrants to the northern suburbs of Perth, Joondalup United grew from strength-to-strength over the years and eventually reached the pinnacle by competing in the 2016 National Premier League WA.

In its journey from inception in 2000, Joondalup United, which started from a social club and progressed to Amateur, is today a club which has teams in almost all age groups, including Juniors, Womens and Masters.

“Nic (Maplestone) and Adam’s (Buckley) move from Saturdays (State) to Sundays (Amateur) proves that Joondalup United players can always don Joondalup United colours according to their personal work or family commitments and still contribute to the club,”said JUFC president Ghaz Ramli.

The club’s pathway can also lead players into the Masters set up as the club has over 35s and 45s sides. Joondalup United is built to service the community through the four grounds operated (Beldon Park, Charonia Park, Forrest Park and Prince Regent Park) and hope to continue this in a positive, safe and healthy environment for many more years to come.

“This means a player can start and end his career for Joondalup United. If they do excel in the sport, the club would be proud to see our player playing and performing in a higher level. However, we want them to know they can always come home to Joondalup United when their career comes to an end,” said Ramli.

State players moving to Amateurs is not new. In 2019, Rowdy Yates, Joel Ledsham with Tony Taylor joined a Sunday side also powered by Buckley after a season with the Masters 35s side. The team finished fifth in their first season in the Amateur Premier Division.

Both Taylor and Buckley moved back to the State side in 2021 which helped the team to the fourth place finish and silverware in the finals.

Joondalup United has also seen Amateur players being promoted to the State side, including James Oldroyd among others.

Meanwhile, the Amateurs had a tough season last year in top flight, moving back to Division 1 for 2022.

“Joondalup is United. That’s our tagline and whatever team our players are in we are all playing for the same badge. Players who perform will get the opportunity to be promoted to a higher level and this goes for the juniors as well,” said Ramli.

“The club also takes pride in all of our coaches. From the youngest age group to the first team head coach, we are all working towards one goal. Interestingly, our Techincal Directors are Adam (Buckley) and Tony (Taylor) who have both been with us for over 10 years and are well aware of the club’s ethos.”

Head coach Nick Jennings welcomes the move and is looking forward to seeing both players perform.

“Both boys have been great servants to the club and always gave me 110% every week, it’s great to see both remain in Joondalup United blue again this season proving again how unique we are as a club,” he said.

Maplestone, the younger brother of former Joondalup United State side captain, Aaron, is looking forward to the challenge.

“What’s wonderful is that I know most of the players and we have played together when we are younger,”said Maplestone, referring to likes of defender Adam Rogers and midfielders James Green and Blaine Slater, to name a few.

Goal machine Buckley is also looking forward to adding more goals to his name despite his hectic schedule for the club. With his commitment as head coach for the State Reserve side and his role as the TD, Buckley is also keen for his return to Beldon Park.

“It’s great to have a player like Nic (Maplestone) still playing for the club. He will definitely be a great player for the squad and I am looking forward playing with the squad,” he said.

Amateurs head coach Neil Sherwin stands to benefit the most from this players progression.

“It’s no secret that we struggled in front of goal last season and one of our priorities has been to add more quality at the top end of the pitch,” he said.

”To have two quality players join us from the State League set up is fantastic and it raises the bar for us in terms of standard and ability. The two lads have goals in them and will fit right in with the strong culture we have built in the squad.”

The two players’ inclusion, along with the majority of the squad being retained from last season, means the team is looking to straight get into business as pre-season starts next Tuesday at Beldon Park.

The target will be to find its spot back in the Amateur Premier Division immediately. The team is also powered by a new line up of coaches including Green and newly appointed Jack Snape as assistants to Sherwin in the first team. Long time Joondalup United loyalist Joel Wigglesworth and former player James Spurry co-share the reserve coaching position.

He’s a keeper – Smith recommits to JUFC for 2022

JOONDALUP UNITED FOOTBALL CLUB starts of 2022 with the re-signing of our number one goalkeeper Joey Smith.

Smith, who joined the squad last season, was among the stand out player in the squad and even picked up his first silverware in his first season winning the Top 4 Cup.

Smith’s return between the sticks is a great coup for head coach Nick Jennings and co.

“Joey was excellent after he joined us midway through last season, and retaining him for the forthcoming season was a big priority,” said Jennings

“He is an experienced state league keeper, and a great character to have around the playing group,” he added.

Smith is also pleased with his returned to the United: “This is a great club with great members and I am pleased to be with Joondalup United once again.”

“It’s going to be another challenging season but I am ready to give my best,” added Smith who had six clean sheets last season.

Smith’s return to don the number one shirt is a big win for the club.

“Joey (Smith) is a hero for all of our junior keepers and an inspiration to our senior ones who will aspire to be in that number one shirt. Looking forward to watching him in action again this year and he guards our goal,” said Ramli.
