South East United Football Club was established in November 2013, by members of the Dodges Ferry, Richmond and Cambridge junior football clubs, with the aim of promoting the development of junior, youth and senior football at the new Sorell Council facilities at Pembroke Park.
Prior to this point, making the transition from junior to youth football meant that parents and children from regional areas faced the logistical and often-expensive prospect of travelling to the eastern suburbs or the city. As a result, many children opted to drop out of the game once they had outgrown their local junior football club.
South East United FC was established to provide children from Campania to Lauderdale, Richmond to Triabunna, and Dodges Ferry all the way to the Tasman Peninsula, with an affordable and accessible youth program.
We kicked off with a junior and senior Summer Sixes competition in October 2014 and have since fielded teams in junior, youth and senior social divisions for both men and women.
Our core club values may be defined as:
Teamwork – friendship, reliability, trust, encouragement, supportiveness, selflessness, sharing, belief, patience, inclusiveness, empowering others
Respect – equality, appreciation, understanding, tolerance, acceptance, responsibility, empathy, loyalty, honour
Integrity – sportsmanship, fairness, professionalism, stability, honesty, leadership, consistency, accountability, strength
Passion – enthusiasm, courage, commitment, allegiance, dedication, pride, energy, hunger, perseverance, striving to improve
THE TRIP IS THE FOUNDATION OF THE JOURNEY.
