A note of appreciation
'I just love playing football and being with my friends’. - Mathew Moriarty, U10's
It can be hard sometimes to motivate ourselves to get out there and participate - on and off the pitch - but Mathew's words are what drive us all.
We want to say the biggest thanks to all our players for making us so proud and for going out onto the pitch, hail, rain or pandemic - for showing great resilience and being able to adapt to the changing regulations and conditions.
Behind the scenes there are so many people to thank for helping us through this challenging year and helping our club to become better than ever. We now have over 50 volunteers registered doing a variety of roles (manager, coach, covid officer, fundraiser, committee member and more). Together with the parents, guardians and players, you are our club and you are the people helping to create memories for our families. Whether you're the chairman or you've cheered from the sidelines, lifted a goal, tied a lace or bought a ticket - it all matters.
