NEPEAN FA FINALS
Congratulations to all teams who competed in the 2016 Championship Series Tournament Finals Day.  There was a great deal of concern before the weekend as to whether or not it would actually go ahead, with Mother Nature being most unkind to us, but we're happy to report that it all worked out in the end.  The wind blew, the sun shone & the fields dried out in time to host the 60 finals matches.  Click Here for a list of all results from the Finals Weekend.

Click Here to access the Gallery on our website with images from the Finals Weekend, we'll continue to add to these photos as new photos are received.

We also have a range of lost property from the finals weekend ranging from chairs, shoes, and keys. If you have lost anything please contact our office on 4731 2911.

FINALS DAY VOLUNTEERS HONOUR ROLL

The Nepean Football Association wish to thank the following superstar volunteers, and staff members for their contribution over the finals weekend.  Bringing together such a big event can only be possible when we have the contribution of such an amazing volunteer workforce.  Added to these superstars, we also can't forget the two marvelous host clubs, Penrith RSL SC & Penrith FC, whose club members also work extremely hard across the two days, so to everyone who contributed, either on the ground or behind the scenes, thanks from everyone at Nepean FA!!
