We're doing our training tournament this week! All abilities together, sign up and have fun! Remember to make sure that your RSVP is correct by Tuesday night so that we can split teams. Can't wait to see you goals.

P.s. keepers please comment on the post so that we can split you evenly :)


Absolutely delighted to announce our new Mat Ches: Paula Griffin!!

We’re still looking to fill a few new committee positions: Social Media and Comms Sec. Job descriptions for the separated roles will be posted shortly, but if either of those sound like something you’d be interested in please email


Wow - don't Gaby & Ciara look AMAZING?! YOU could look this good too as our beautiful merchandise range is STILL on sale! The merch range is limited addition so head to our store & snap it up while you can!


Monday 5s Beginners are still having fun in the Whitechapel league. Thanks Manager Millie for helping out and congrats to player of the week Sam! Paula scored a legendary 5 goals to make it 6-0 to GDFC! We might be a bit good for this league ;)

On Monday, the Mabley Green's team's opposition forgot the game was on so we played a derby! What a delight! A close 4-2 derby battle with absolutely skills from all (that flick from FC to Kate!). Players of the match were Flo for a gorgeous shot (Full detail: The perfect ball was fizzed in at pace. Flo cushioned the ball with her knee and then volleyed it (left footed) to the bottom corner.) And Laura for saving said shot (and many more). Honestly though, everyone was top.

Tuesday 7s Captain River's potm was Emily Wickham for snatching that ball away from Islington at all times. Well played! Captain Katherine's potm was Hannah for a fabulous defensive game! Shoutout to Adwoa on a bloody hat trick on her debut 7s match !

Tuesday Flexi league won 6-0 thanks to 5 (!) goals from Raff and a stunningly nonchalant penalty from Cara!

Training Players of the week: Jen, Joanne, Nadia & Sam! The coaches had an even harder task than usual to pick their players of the week due to the amazing turn out but these four dug oh so deep and were well deserved players of the week!

A huge shout out to the coaches this week - it was amazing to have four wonderful coaches down and the session worked beautifully. It was also magical to have Coach Ciara back. Exciting times!!

A huge shout out to Ellen who managed to sweet talk The Persy into gifting us AN EXTRA pizza. Look how happy Shiv is about this!

And to finish it off, fresh from the pitch, a pic of Deema, Captain Hannah’s POTW for Sunday 7s !
