Note that 11aside Div 1 training has been moved. Instead of this Thursday, we will be holding a session on a weekend in the new year to avoid clashing with our Quizmas social.
Instead of 11s training this week we are hosting one more non member session for ALL ages and ALL abilities - if you know anyone who would be keen to join the goalorious session this Thursday please share this link with them: https://www.goaldiggersfootballclub.com/event-details/final-football-session-of-the-year
Christmas kick-arounds are now live on the app! If you want to join on any of the dates just press attending, and if we get more than ten, we play.
2 HOUR: MIXED ABILITY TOURNEY
As always we are ending the year with a fun filled training tourney - think goals n think lols.
The tourney will consist of 4 teams enjoying 7 or 8-A-Side footie. You will be allocated your team and your team colour on the day so please keep your eyes on the Team App - and as always please PLEASE respect your fellow goals and if you need to drop out, do so sooner rather than later in order to ensure every tourney spot is used.
2 HOUR: SOCIALLY DISTANCED TRAINING
As it is getting close to Christmas we appreciate that a large amount of our members are being extra careful in order to ensure they remain Covid safe. As a result we are holding two socially distanced sessions which *do not* include matches at the end. They will be full of drills, thrills and skills. So get ready for a super safe and super fun final training of the year.
GDFC RUN (OR WALK) TO MILAN
Sadly our planned tour to Milan this year was scuppered... however, to pay homage we are launching GDFC run (or walk) to Milan!
What: Run or walk as a club a cumulative distance of 763 miles from our Haggerston Park to Milan!
Where: Anywhere! Just get out there and start moving!
When: This launches after our last training session of 2020, from Thursday 17th December and up to midnight on New Years Eve (2 weeks) GDFC members can log runs and walks.
Join Nike Run Club and find Goal Diggers. Add Goal as a friend and you will be added to the GDFC Runs to Milan Challenge to log your runs or walks to the app.
Why: Keep active and engaged during the festive break and help to raise money for GDFC via donations/sponsorship from friends and family! We will be collecting donations here.
How: Run or walk and track your miles. Your miles will be added to the cumulative GDFC total via the Nike RUN Club app.
So dig out your running (or walking) shoes & let's get to Milan by NYE!
The holidays are here and so is this limited edition GDFC Holiday Tote. It's time to dig deep into your pockets, as all proceeds will go straight back into the club. Gift one to your favourite goal or grab one for yourself while they last! Buy it here.
GOALS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN
This Thursday 17th December Social Secs Ellen (Elfllen) and Beth (Belf) are bringing you the festive night of your dreams - it’s QUIIIIZZZMAAAAAAS.
Join us from 7.30pm to flex your general knowledge muscles and compete for some ultimate festive footy prizes! This event is free to members and £2 entry for non-members. All are welcome - please get your tickets for non-members via the TeamApp shop and click attending in the event.
NEW COMMITTEE POSITIONS
We have a couple of new committee positions available in the new year and would love you to join us!
After a fantastic year and a half on the Committee, Beth Miles will be stepping down as Social Sec in the new year. We are looking for a new Social Sec to join the lovely Ellen Robertson. Initially a lot of events that you will be responsible for will be virtual, but you will play a key role in 2021 running socials that will be imperative to the financial stability of GDFC.
We also have a role opening up in the Mat Ches team as the wonderful Leah Kahn will be stepping down after 2 years in multiple Mat roles doing a fantastic job making sure we always have a pitch, a ref and a team to play with. The role will join Ciara and Martha to make up team Mat, we are are just finalising the role and will share the final details with you next week.
To apply for either of these roles please drop a note expressing your interest to firstname.lastname@example.org in the next 2 weeks. If you have any questions, please reach out to any of the committee or drop a note to the email@example.com.
