BANK HOLIDAY KICKAROUND
We’ve planned a kickaround for Monday 29th August in Clapham, at 3-4pm. The post will go up same time as this week’s training (Monday 7.30pm).
MEMBERSHIP REMINDER: RENEW NOW
Membership renewal for the second half of the year will close at the the end of August. If you do not renew by then, you will not have membership for the remainder of 2022. Please go to the store on TeamApp to renew. Do it now or the vein in Gaia's forehead will burst. Is that what you want?
AT GDFC we want to make sure there’s as little as possible preventing you from playing football. For any members that need any financial help towards buying new boots / kit / transport costs etc, we have a kitty to help out. Just get in touch with Gaia at firstname.lastname@example.org!
What an unbelievable July of Euros magic?! We raised almost £500 at The Yard viewing party wowow. This week - La has organised another social for any trans, nonbinary, genderfluid or gender questioning diggers. We’re meeting at Jai Krishna at 8pm, message La, Shiv or Hannah-Lily to join the whatsapp group!
This section is reserved for anyone in the club who has stuff they want to share (job posting, events, other cool opportunities -- whatever!) If you ever want to add anything to this section just email email@example.com and put 'NEWSLETTER' in the subject line.
Member Lucia wanted to flag that her girlfriend Belle is doing free tattoos of pieces from her summer flash throughout August.
Here is a link to her post with the flash on Instagram - her profile is @belletats and she works at One by One studio in Soho. Have a look at her profile to see her previous work.
Belle's pronouns are she/her, identifies as queer and is conscientious in creating a safe space, being respectful to individuals identities. One of the tattoos on the flash is even a cute little rainbow. Ping her on instagram if you would like your body to be permantently marked with a cool design FOR FREE.

SUNDAY 5S AND 7S
What a return! The Legends won the derby but lost heavily against BrazUKa.
Player of the week was our glorious team goal. Hope out to Gaia, little pass up the line to Anna, a sweet cross to River, a diagonal left footed pass to Ally. Ally smashed it home.
Player of the week for All Stars was Izzy agaylea!
Capitano Martha's player of the week was Catherine for never stopping running! First time in the league!
Wow what a turnout we had last Wednesday! Thanks to our coaches for the great sessions.
Congrats to Bina (7 year wait?!), Esther, Bo, Rhianne, Nina and Miranda for players of the week!
