Birthday greetings today to Erica Trevett, Kevin King and Aaron Maher!
9am update: SUNDAY RESERVES OFF – FROZEN PITCH … this is depressing, not one game today … But Nick Cook and the Junior Valiants are training as normal at 10am
SUNDAY RESERVES STILL ON … INSPECTION 9am Sunday
CAN ALL PLAYERS PLEASE MEET IN THE CLUBHOUSE BY 9.15am AT THE LATEST … THAT WAY WE CAN INFORM EVERYBODY IMMEDIATELY OF THE OUTCOME OF THE PITCH INSPECTION AND SAVE CONSIDERABLE INCONVENIENCE. THANK YOU.
Saturday morning: one game on in the club and it is cold!
The U11s put on an entertaining match at Great Chart against Pilgrims in the only surviving fixture across the whole club on Saturday. Not allowed to give the score but well done everyone that braved the bitterly cold conditions. Report to follow from Rob below … and thanks to all those who came back and supported the clubhouse … especially ‘chef’ Mark ‘Spud’ Smith.
Unhappy manager’s report
Today we made the short trip to great chart to face pilgrims on a very cold morning the boys started brightly and matched the opposition in all areas but then came a few issues with players wanting to come off due to the cold which unsettled the formation and made it harder for the dedicated players which is a shame not naming any but in future if they could let me know before games that it’s to cold then I can call games off instead of letting myself down and team mates. As to be honest I was embarrassed by some of the boys actions today football is a team sport and you all need to pull together if you are going to progress I in the other hand am seriously considering packing it in at the end of the season but we will cross that bridge when it comes to it well done Charlie for getting POTM today well done . Cheers Rob.
Clubhouse open Saturday 7.50am … only Nelson of the U16s and myself here (and Nelson’s game is off … have told him to look at the website in future!) Closing now (8.30am) and going to watch the game. Opening again afterwards about 10.30am.
Update 7.40am: Under 11s is ON
Pitch inspection 7.30am at Great Chart for the Under 11s match
