This was Melbourne Victory's chance to say thank you to the people that help players of all ages and abilities enjoy the game we love and further improve the development pathways available to the state's young footballers.

These lucky clubs were the most recent winners: Ashburton United, Avondale Heights, Bentleigh Greens, Boroondara Eagles, Doncaster Rovers, Epping City, Fawkner Blues, Glen Waverley, Monbulk Rangers, Mooroolbark Soccer Club, Moreland Wolves, Oakleigh Cannons, Ringwood City, Springvale White Eagles, Sunbury United and Williamstown Soccer Club.

Melbourne Victory conducted its final visits to minor prize winning clubs this week and the response has been fantastic. Players provided tips and encouragement to the junior footballers at each of these clubs, signing autographs and posing for photos.

Major prize winners Pascoe Vale Panthers Under 9-s will have an exclusive session with entire Melbourne Victory squad during the September school holidays after submitting the following entry.

Pascoe Vale Panthers, Are only Under 9, But they are gutsy players, There ain't no denying.

Committed to training, And doing their best, They're very determined, Rarely stopping to rest.

They don't always win, Or even get a draw, But they are good sports, And keep going back for more!

Well done to Pascoe Vale Panthers Under 9's!

Peter Scherer from Sunbury United Soccer Club, was also grateful for the chance to host two of Melbourne Victory's star players;

"A huge thanks Melbourne Victory for the fantastic visit we received last night from Tom Pondeljak & Mate Dugandzic, they were fantastic and enthusiastic in what was absolutely terribly cold and windy weather conditions. Our players, parents and officials were most impressed and appreciative of their efforts. Please pass on our thanks to both gentlemen who represented their club in a most genuine and professional manner”
