7:00-7:15: small square possession game, up to 5 v 5 players, all abilities together, 10 passes = 1 goal!

7:15-7:20: split into training groups and do a dynamic warm-up and names & pronouns while you stretch

Big shout-out to Zowie on an excellent game last Tuesday. She dug very deep and made lots of gorgeous passes. Captain Flo gave POTM to Millie for a great game too!


A well earnt win. The experienced 11s. Shutout to Ciara Taylor, Anna Trench & Emma Holbrooke for fantastic well-placed shots. POTM was Emma and Ciara!


Congrats to both teams on a wonderful tournament! Extra thanks to the Adday for coming down last minute, Captains Dee & Millie, Hannah for helping out with the beginners team, Anokhi on her GDFC debut and tbh everyone on making it such good vibes!

Captain Millie's player of the week was Kate and Captain Dee's was Adday! Fan's POTM went to Hope!


Everyone was on (roof)top form this week at our kickaround! It was so hard to pick a player of the week from each team - but the decision had to be made.

Rachel Kay was picked from Team Blue & renamed "Special Kay" for a tenacity & delicious goals. Cara Bruce was picked from Team White for her skill at reading the game, her pass completion rate and her team spirit. She dug deep. Izzy was picked from Team Red for her silky skills and even silkier shots. She was an unstoppable force and a real "menace" on the pitch. Fleur was picked from Team Green for her "twinkling toes" and for always finding the pass. A super Sunday. Thanks all. Xx

A shout out to Treasurer Alex for booking us 2 goalorious rooftop pitches this Sunday for a kickaround. Such a treat! And a shout out to all the pool playing goals at the pub after - such a pool of talent ;) Ps shout out to Lorraine & Farida for looking super in their kits (still on sale if anyone wants to buy more - all profits go back to GDFC) and shout out to Georgia for this stunning mesh x footie shirt collab. We love to see it.
