In line with updated government guidance, we are allowed to be in groups of 30 people outside. Therefore, we will be splitting the advanced members into 2 groups of 28. Further splits will be done at training to save admin time of recreating bubbles as members drop out.

Please only sign up to training if you are definitely able to attend, last minute dropouts make it extremely difficult for our coaches to plan sessions effectively.


From THIS Monday we are allowed in groups of 30 outdoors which means... post training socialising is officially back baby!!!

Your social secs Katherine and Ellen warmly invite you to the Perseverance Pub garden (The Percy to its close friends) just off Broadway Market every Wednesday after training from Wednesday 19th May until.... the end of time!* *Last orders about 10pm.

Not only are there all the non-alcoholic and alcoholic bevs you could wish for, but Trish and the gang are even going to make us gorgeous sandwiches 😭 for free!

We cannot WAIT to hang out with old members and new. It’s SUCH freakin good vibes back there you have no idea. Huge Love! E&K x

PS as always if you have any queries or comments wing either of us a message in TeamApp and we’ll get back to you at lightning speed

PPS at the Percy please aim to stay in your training bubbles for Covid safety.


Calthorpe Community Pitch

Size: 5-A-Side

Surface: Flat AstroTurf (no moulds)

Time: 8.15-9.30pm

Location: 258-274 Grays Inn Rd, London WC1X 8LH

Our members only kick-around match is THIS Thursday and we have TWO spots left! Head over to the event in the app now to snatch a spot.

We are so excited about the introduction of these sessions: more football, more socialising, more fun. These kick-arounds are also a perfect way of all abilities meeting and enjoying a pressure free match environment in a beautiful community garden setting.


As part of our aims to meet, learn from & support other inclusive queer clubs in London, we’ve organised a friendly kickaround with Soho FC on Thursday 3rd June.

Soho FC are an LGBTQI+ mixed football team. Priority will be given to our non-binary and trans members who want to play. Post will go up on 24th May at 5.30 pm.

Save the Date!


As we have had 15 spare spots or more for the last 3 weeks of training, we are slightly increasing our membership cap. This is because we hate to have people on our waitlist, without any access to football, when there is space for them to train on Haggerston. Those who are in our reserved spots will be joining over the next few weeks. Please welcome them to GDFC and let Gaia know if you are able to buddy somebody!
