WE ARE UNITED
NEWS & UPDATES
WE HAVE SOME GREAT REVIEWS!
A big thank you goes out to those of you who have contributed a testimonial for our club, we truly appreciate it!
I’ve always believed that community is the most important aspect of life, and that is what I found at Steel United.
Moving from Adelaide was really tough for me. I left behind family, friends, and a club I loved playing for. Steel made being away from home so much easier.
As soon as I entered the club, I was made to feel a part of the community by not only coaches and players, but also the supporters and club as a whole.
Steel ignited my passion for playing, but also to be part of the Whyalla community as a whole. I developed relationships and connections within the town that I will carry with me for life.
I’d like to thank the club for having me for my 3 years in Whyalla. As the club song says “a team called United’s a pleasure to see” – and play for.
I have been very fortunate to have spent three years at Steel United. I was lucky enough to have made my way to Steel, despite not knowing anything about the club prior to my move to Whyalla.
Throughout my three years in Whyalla, I have felt incredibly welcomed by players, supporters, and the many volunteers who regularly attend Steel games and functions. Moving four hours away from home, and being only 22 at the time of my move, the people at Steel ensured I felt a part of both the club, but also the Whyalla community as well, and really supported me in getting settled into the area.
There are some great people around Whyalla soccer, and I have no doubt that most of these great people are at Steel. It is a fantastic club, and one which has made it difficult in making my decision to leave Whyalla, having welcomed and supported me for the past three years.
I came to Steel United after moving to regional South Australia from Melbourne.
Itching to play soccer in the area, I was lucky to call Steel United home for the season of 2022. Coming from Victoria, without family or friends was a challenging time and soccer is something that has always united me and made me feel a sense of community and home.
Steel United Soccer Club was exactly that. From the first preseason training until the very last game, Steel was always incredibly welcoming, supportive and flexible. They showed the same sense of passion for soccer and importance of community that made travelling from Port Augusta week by week incredibly easy.
If it weren’t for commitments back home (Melbourne), there is no doubt in my mind that I would have stayed at Steel. And who knows, a trip back just to see the club is always on the cards.
