No training this week but we have...
HAGGERSTON PARK KICKAROUNDS
We've got festive fun kickarounds everyday from 23rd December - 1st January. That's so many chances to kickaround together! We play on the grass at Haggerston Park (behind where we train) and absolutely everyone is welcome. Not only is it a super way to play footie but we promise cosy vibes at the Virgin Queen after - with pool too! Sign up in the app :)
Message from Hannah May: Thank you so much to everyone who donated to our Kitmas fundraiser. We managed to buy 17 shirts, two pairs of goalie gloves and two water bottles with the money raised! The Kitmas team were so impressed with how much you donated in such a short period they gave an extra 15 kits :)
Hackney Foodbank are delighted with the donations and wanted me to pass on their thanks. I would also like to give a massive shout out to Beth who took delivery of the kits and took them down to the warehouse. What a hero!

Tourney report from Laura: First off thanks very much to all who attended the 5 a side Xmas tournament! We entered 2 x teams into the tournament and while neither won, there was a cracking showing from everyone and a VERY close derby (well done to GDFC Team One aka Coal Diggers FC for coming out on top in an end to end 3-2 thriller!)
We had 2 special Christmas themed player of the day prizes and those were awarded to Paula ‘Safe Hands’ Griffin for her SENSATIONAL goal keeping performance and also to Scotty for her great forward play and some cracking goals!!
(Yes, the pitches are indeed inside a repurposed multi story car park!)
