2021/22 Presentation Day

With under 1 week to go we hope you are all ready for the club presentation day.

When: 25th June 2022 Where: Compass Gardens Time: 10:00 – 16:0

This year’s event will be bigger than ever, with many activities already booked for the day, along with a few surprise new additions.

The bar and BBQ will be open all day, so please feel free to bring a blanket, and settle down to enjoy all the activities – we’ve booked the weather for you!

For those that have not been before this is a great day for both you and the players. We have many fun activities planned to keep everyone entertained, including our legendary speed shot competition, with prizes for the fasted child at each age group, and the fastest mum and dad – can you beat our current record of 63 mph?

Our bouncy castle village will also be there, and do not forget to hang around for the feature match where you will see how it is done when our managers take on each other! 

There will be an Ice Cream van on site, and we will have homemade cakes, snacks, and light refreshments

No need to carry drink with you – we will be serving draft beer and chilled Prosecco at club subsidised rates, with locally sourced burgers and hot dogs on the BBQ all day.

Please make the most of this club day, and enjoy it. Covid has stopped this for two years so we all deserve a celebration.

We look forward to seeing all of you on the day.

Important Updates for Development Squad, Year 1 & 2 Players

Development Squad Update
Thank you all for your fantastic support this year – the children really appreciate it!

Today (Saturday 18 December) is our last session of the year. We will take a short break and return here at the 3G Pitch on Saturday 8 January 2022.

Important Info For YR 1 and 2 Players
We will be looking for volunteers to step up and assist in running the teams for our Year 1 & 2 children when we return. Although they won’t start in a league until September, we will be arranging friendly games for them from the spring, which will come around quickly. We have seen in previous years that the sooner we can get the children into team units the better, for their learning and development.

Please stay up to date with all club information either here on our webpage or on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
