Message from The Patron: can I make it quite clear that no BGFC seniors are currently training at Waterside. We are working strictly to government and FA rulings and I am getting tired of people complaining about everything under the sun that has nothing to do with us! If anyone has a problem with this please contact me direct, not on unofficial forums. Thank you Dave Homewood
Happy birthday today to Alex Potts, Kieron Smith and Bobby Mayes!
Thank you to all those who attended meetings on Wednesday – very productive and notes will be sent out to all Exec, managers and admins
Today’s Mini-6 Meeting is at 10am: DH, Tony N, Leah-Ann M. Michelle E, Brian E (space for 1 other – please advise DH if interested/available)
George Mabb returns … as manager
Straight off the press, we can announce that our Under 16s have a new manager with immediate effect. Former youth player George Mabb (22) finalised talks last night with the Chairman and Patron and is already relishing the challenge of lifting spirits, getting wavering players back in the fold and building a successful side in preparation for senior/U18 football. George will bring in Reece Pringle as his assistant and the pair will shortly be contacting all current and recent players and inviting newcomers to join this exciting venture. The appointment ends the uncertainty after a series of managerial resignations, mostly for personal reasons, that has seen a string of managers resign in the last few seasons. The appointment is another boost for the squad as our partnership with Charlton Athletic Community Trust begins in July with future plans in the new facility including education combined with high level football coaching. Perfect timing for a long-term project and we hope everybody in the club will pull together to bring about enjoyment and success. Good luck George and Reece.
Under 16s training begins Wednesday 17 June @6pm
Training for the Under 16s begins next Wednesday (17 June 2020) @6pm and it will be an open session – so bring any friends but be sure to let us know if newcomers are attending as we must adhere to social distancing and maximum groups of 6 including the trainer. Further details from George on 07391 030875 email firstname.lastname@example.org
