Hello! Remember this Friday is GDFC's birthday party -- there's still time for you to buy your ticket! The ONLY way to get it is by scrolling to the link at the bottom of this newsletter, past many cute photos of your team mates. You can thank me later.
It's autumn; buy a scarf!
Player Shout-Outs (and a reminder to get your ticket for Friday!)
Have a question about leagues? Get in touch with the relevant league rep on TeamApp or with our head of football Paula!
If you can help with carrying equipment to training please drop a message in the Ball Collecting chat on TeamApp when you sign up. The address is 2 Moye Close, E2 8QN... just a stones throw from the pitches (and the pub afterwards).
⚽️ Reminder from Coach Josh: we've got a feedback form where you can let us know your thoughts on training. Feel free to send this either straight after a session, or when it suits you during the week. ⚽️
👉 You can also feedback specifically on our all-abilities tournaments: We started doing all ability training tournaments a year ago. The idea was to provide opportunities for everyone in the club to meet each other and to reinforce our non-ability ethos. We wanted to check in about how you all found the training tournament two weeks ago. Please feedback here if you have any thoughts or comments, including if you enjoyed!
LIMITED EDITION SCARVES AVAILABLE IN THE SHOP
Have you noticed? It's getting colder! Better buy a SCARF. In the store right now we still have a few limited edition GDFC scarves available. They are only £12 and all proceeds go to the club. If you order now, you'll get your scarf in 3-4 weeks, just in time for when it starts to get truly cold.
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 email@example.com!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org and put 'NEWSLETTER' in the subject line.

Another great week at Training. Congrats to Kim, Giulia and Ellen on winning our latest holographic sticker !
Intermediate 7’s POTW is Sarah with captain Alisha. Sarah won for her tenacity across two fairly tough games. Brilliant play all around from the entire team who put in a great shift! Sarah, however must have covered every inch of (fake) grass on the field!
Well done team!
All Stars had a fantastic week at 5s! Drawing 3-3 against top of the league Brazuka & then achieving a commanding 7-2 win over Phoenix FC. Goals goals goals! Player of the week was Louise for her outstanding keeping - at one point she literally flew through the air - according to Kate Allinson this was "salmon like". We love to see it. She also got an assist. Unbelievable scenes. DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE TALENT SHOW THIS FRIDAY Hannah-Lily was at the Sunday pub getting ready for Friday at BGWMC.
