Under 15s with Dennis Monk on Tuesday
Pretty poor turn-out – in my words a piss take – but well done to the eight committed lads that turned up for training on Tuesday with Dennis. Free drinks for Dan, Aleks, Toby, Josh, Bobby, Jake, Harry, Igor!
Clubhouse open Tuesday from 5pm with DH
Under 15s: can we have everyone at training tonight please? Dennis and myself start promptly at 6pm. Thank you DH
Under 12s McDonalds squad to face Folkestone tonight at Waterside with a 6pm kick off
Kavalli; Alfie, Thomas, Sam, Daniel, Mitchell, Katie, Kyla, Elizabeth, Orlando, Lenny, Cayden
Good luck to the U12s McDonalds and the U10 DVS squads who have their final pre-season friendlies on Tuesday evening. Please remember Player of the Match awards afterwards at the club (vouchers are only eligible on the day of the match).
On the subject of PoM awards, please note that in children’s teams the vouchers have to be shared around as part of our inclusion and equality policies. A few parents have grumbled that some players seem to win it far more than others. If we can all adhere to the spirit of the club’s gesture of offering vouchers please as few other clubs do. Thank you.
Training tonight for all the usual groups (please refer to the Events & Fixtures page if in doubt)
Under 12s Pirtek
U12s Pirtek: we need a fixture for Sunday 8 September if anyone knows suitable opposition as I keep getting let down by opponents dropping out. We can do morning or afternoon. Thanks firstname.lastname@example.org
- All midweek training from now on will start by 6pm at the latest please as we prepare for the light to start fading (what a thought!)
- Need a coordinator for the winter training sessions to step up to the plate please as we need to sort now. Speak to Dave Homewood for details.
- Message from the Chairman: on match days, all youth teams are to meet in the clubhouse and return afterwards to get changed and support team mates with the PoM awards (which are only valid on the day of the match). A reminder, unlike ‘other clubs’, parents don’t have to buy or wash the kit here as it is all part of the standing order.
- U9 Hurricanes: Michelle can you please issue t-shirts tonight (they are badged but as discussed we are not numbering at the moment to speed things up)
- The final sponsored penalty shots are tonight with Liam Monk … any last-minute sponsors welcome. We can then provide the exact financial figures for trips.
- Those U10s that have left … to those it concerns, please settle debts (including adult bar debts) and return any kits you have … thank you.
- Many of our children are starting new schools – good luck, enjoy, work hard but leave some time for football!
