In case anyone has missed the updated tour dates (11-13 Aug), our wonderful Tour Secs Ananya & Dan are organising a lovely weekend in Hastings. There will be football, a club dinner, time on the beach and (hopefully) England getting through to the World Cup semifinals.

Tour is for every GDFC member, and we hope as many of you as possible will come. It's a great way to make friends in the club, so definitely come along even if you've only just joined!

The cost of tour varies between £65-£215. We don't want that to stop anyone coming on tour. If you need further financial assistance, reply to this email and we can help to further reduce & spread the costs.

Make sure you RSVP on the app & purchase your accommodation option in the Store (by the end of THIS week). If you want to camp but don't have a tent, we'll set up a chat in TeamApp where people can offer any spare camping / sleeping bags they have. Full info is below!


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 and put 'NEWSLETTER' in the subject line.


COCKROACH - an eccentric drag king comedy, where you'll find out that life isn't the only thing that's hard.

Bang average blokes. Barry, Brian & Bean. They're unlikeable, untalented & generally underwhelming, which means they're destined for greatness.

An eccentric drag king comedy brought to you by the clowns of The Barry, Brian & Bean Company. Set in the 1980s, and with a soundtrack full of hits, COCKROACH explores how pity, loneliness and downright delusion thrives under the weight of the rat race. Follow Barry, Brian and Bean on their journey towards *something* better, *something* more, *something* to make it all worthwhile. Be prepared for sexual tension, fiery 80's karaoke & the occasional emu. Canal Cafe Theatre, W2 6NG July 20th/21st/22nd £14/£11 Tickets @ the Canal Cafe Theatre website or follow the link in our instagram bio (@barrybrianbean)


The Amateur FA and Super Liga have teamed up to hold a Stepping Over the Sidelines workshop aimed at getting more women and non-binary people into coaching.

The FA ‘Stepping Over The Sidelines’ workshops are for those of all ages and backgrounds who would like to get into volunteering and coaching within football. This programme is designed to allow those with transferrable skills and expertise from other backgrounds to inspire change within the game. Your valuable insight from experiences outside of football may just be the advice a team needs to progress their development and feel inspired to influence change within the game. You don’t have to be an expert to help teams gain confidence, learn new skills, and absorb some of your knowledge to further their growth through coaching. There is no initial commitment, and the free session will act as an introduction to the programme, and how you can potentially play a key part in it. All we ask is to register your interest using the form below ahead of the workshop. Event Details When: Sunday 2nd July 2023 Time: 2pm - 4pm Where: Archbishop's Park, Carlisle Lane, London SE1 7LE Book your place here: The workshop will be delivered by FA Community Champion and Equal Game Ambassador, Steph Fairbairn.

Please can you pass this onto anyone you think would be interested in attending.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch (Samantha Brown



Thanks for all 75(!) of you being there on Wednesday. Here are some of our players of the day for their vibes, their saves and their goals. Well done all!


A last minute equaliser by Candi meant we drew 2-2, but a really fabulous game with loads of fantastic passing. Flo's potm was Lucy for a great goal!
