Mount Barker United Soccer Club are moving to the next exciting stage of the Club’s development. This season Kappa Australia are our clubs Kit and merchandise suppliers and we are now proud to announce that through our alliance with Kappa we are able to launch our Online store. This is now live and we encourage all involved with the club to help support us by getting family and friends to visit the site to purchase any items they might want. Mount Barker Soccer Club in return benefits from this partnership with some monies raised from the purchases being directed into the Clubs funds.

The cost of each item has also been subsidised by Kappa to help make the apparel generally more affordable to all.

Please be mindful when ordering, European sizing can be slightly smaller. Delivery from placement of  order is 2-5 days ex-Melbourne with heat seal of our MBUSC logo on certain items as shown on the images on the website. Please note no returns for items that have been heat sealed, if you have any issues with damages or faulty products, please liaise with Kappa in the first instance.

Please follow the link below (password included) to browse and make any purchases now and throughout the season as you require.


Ed: It is also worth mentioning the amazing amount of time and effort that has been spent by Deb Taylor in getting this whole project off the ground. Numerous people have queried us about apparel over the years and the solutions that we have had previously have been slow and time consuming. This new partnership with Kappa will benefit everyone a great deal. Thank you Deb!

State League 1 - Seeking Goalkeeper Print
Written by Brendan Stone   
Wednesday, 07 October 2015 15:15

The Mount Barker United Soccer Club is seeking a goalkeeper for their State League 1 squad. 

We are entering the State League 1 for the first time in 2016, the beginning of an exciting future for the Hills based club. As an established club, we offer players floodlit training pitches at Anembo Park as well as immaculate playing pitches at Cornerstone College.

We are seeking expressions from players that would like to join us in 2016 as the first team goalkeeper.

This opportunity would bode well with an experienced and established player that would like to take part in the beginning of the next step for the club, or for a player that feels that their talents are underrated elsewhere and would like to showcase what they have to offer at one of the fastest and popular clubs in the Hills.

Anyone that is interested, or would like more information, is encouraged to contact Mark Zito (Head Coach) - This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Medal and Trophy Presentations Print
Written by James McArthur   
Thursday, 24 September 2015 14:26

Medal and Trophy Presentations

To All Members,

I apologise for the delay, the club rooms are heavily booked before the holidays.

Trophy and Medal Presentations will be the last Sunday of the school holidays, October 11th.

We are trying to keep the function as simple as possible, so teams will be called in groups.  Sausages and soft drinks will be available to purchase on the day.  .  See you there!

  • 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm => U9, U10, U12
  • 1:30 pm - 2pm => AGM
  • 2pm - finish => U14, U16 and U17G

Development teams, historically, don’t receive medals which is why they are not listed.

Brooke’s U8’s have had team presentation separately, hence they are not in the list.

We would encourage parents in these younger groups to join us for a BBQ, catch-up with the committee, discuss our plans for next year and participate in the AGM.

Your children, hopefully, will have a long spell at the club and your early involvement at a committee level would benefit them.

Kind regards,

James McArthur

MBUSC President
