After successful stint as a Senior Coach, Amy has been promoted to Vice Head of Coaching. Her development as a coach, and a manager has helped GDFC get to where it is today. She's remains a massive part of the club, and we're thrilled to be in a position to offer her a role that reflects that.
We love you, Lester 💛
Message below from Kit Sec, Laura (big thanks for all your hard work) Thanks all for those that have filled in the form. Please note that only those who received a message (after my initial one, apologies for spamming you all..) entitled KIT FORM (around 34 of you in that chat) need to fill in the below form by THIS FRIDAY. If you do not, I will give out everyone else's kit then come to you last with the remaining sizes. Can you please fill in the form using the link below, even if you don’t play often or are out injured etc so I can keep it aside for you.
For everyone else, I will give out your kits, then once we have given the majority of them, I will come back around with a round of swaps for sizing. I appreciate all your patience and assistance with this, we are nearly there! I will start to distribute the kit w/c 27 March. Thank you!
NEW FEEDBACK FORM
We've tried to make it a bit easier for you all to give feedback to the right people in the club. We've consolidated the coaching form and the anonymous committee form (that we share with the meeting minutes) into one quick form.
It can be found here: https://forms.gle/L7PfcqzML8JMPWwv7
We'll also add it to our instagram bio, it's one of the 'ads' that should pop up on TeamApp, and we'll put at the bottom of the newsletter.
If you have any suggestions on how it could be improved, give us a shout (hey, why not use the form to feedback on the form?!). Keep up the feedback goals x
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.
SUNDAY (FROM LAST WEEK)
Legends had a great week: 6 points on the board and a really good tight game against Ezy Peelers. Great assist from Sacha earning her potm!
Scarlet's match report: The goals dug deep on Monday, beating the league toppers Hackney Cubs - 3-1!
It was an excellent game and Hackney put up a great fight but ultimately was no match for our stellar team. We were lucky to have coach Amy on hand too, who gave us fighting pep talk and gave us brilliant advice. Coach Amy’s POTM was Tanya and Dr Hannah. As ever, Tanya was a force not to be reckoned with, scoring all three goals! Hannah was seriously strong in defence, keeping the team cool, calm and collected. Captain Scarlet’s (lol) POTM was Nina for her super saves and giving great communication from the goal to the rest of the team. Special mentions to the rest of the team Sam, Miranda and Deniz - everybody fought hard for the win. Also, Sam won the league's January player of the month which is so cool and well deserved!
Wayne's first potm goes to Izzy! For a stunning bit of play in the drills. Coach Kitty (thank you for stepping in!) chose Phoebe and Ransford and Rosanna chose newbies Sarah and Maya. Well done!
A stunning late goal from hat-trick hero River made us 3-2 winners against Franchester at 11s on Saturday! POTM were Katy Cov for some stunning clearances, Kate for some more stunning defending and Alex for even more great defending. Well done all!
Shout out to the fans who came all the way to Tooting to cheer us on to a mighty win at 11s.
GDFC face Franchester in the CUP next Saturday. Come down to support the goals. It's guaranteed to be a good game!
SUPER SUNDAY (FROM YESTERDAY)
V Experienced Sunday 5s was a true joy ft. pups and pints.
All Stars Player Of The Week: Mathilde - who gave everything on the pitch & gave Fleur socks before the game too. A true giver. Legends Player Of The Week: Garcia - back on goal scoring form!
Advanced 7s Advanced 7's Player of the week with Captain Emma is May Robson!
Laura's match report: The entire team played fantastically, with some real body on the line play and some exquisite passing patterns between the entire team! It was hard to pick a player of the week, but captain Emma had little choice but to give it to May for her Sunday Hat-Trick that utterly swept aside the opposition! Well played all! Also, look at that gorge sunset, makes it all worth it!
