GDFC News 21 December

TIER 4 COVID UPDATE

As per the FA’s latest guidance, adult ‘non-elite’ football is not permitted in Tier 4, including all training and fixtures. We will not be able to enjoy any of our holiday kickarounds but will see you as soon as we can safely!


A reminder that if anyone in the club has tested positive soon after any training session / match that they should let Martha or Ciara know ASAP x



MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL

Membership renewal is opening on 23rd Dec for all current goals to purchase membership for the Jan - June (inclusive) block. Please take a look at the Financial Summary and Membership Renewal document that will be published this week.


Covid & the lack of football in Tier 4 make it very hard to predict how much football we can provide in the next block. We appreciate that some members may want to delay their payment and pay a reduced fee if the length of their membership is reduced due to the lack of football under the Tier 4 / lockdown restrictions. We will have a ‘pay later’ option in the store, for any goals who wish to wait to make a payment, but still intend on joining as a member when they can return to football. We have not set a deadline on this payment yet, and will ensure members are given a month’s notice to make the payment. Please still ‘purchase’ this option as we need to have a clear idea of numbers for our waitlist.



GDFC RUN (OR WALK) TO MILAN

Sadly our planned tour to Milan this year was scuppered... however, to pay homage we are launching GDFC run (or walk) to Milan!


So far we have walked 83.75 miles...meaning we have left the UK and are crossing into Calais!


What: Run or walk as a club a cumulative distance of 763 miles from our Haggerston Park to Milan!


Where: Anywhere! Just get out there and start moving!


When: This launches after our last training session of 2020, from Thursday 17th December and up to midnight on New Years Eve (2 weeks) GDFC members can log runs and walks.


Why: Keep active and engaged during the festive break and help to raise money for GDFC via donations/sponsorship from friends and family! We will be collecting donations here.


How:

  1. Download and Nike Run Club

  2. Find Goal Diggers and add Goal as a friend

  3. Once Goal accepts you as a friend they will add you to the GDFC Runs to Milan Challenge

  4. Accept the invite and start logging your miles!


So dig out your running (or walking) shoes & let's get to Milan by NYE!



FUNDRAISING

The holidays are here and so is this limited edition GDFC Holiday Tote. It's time to dig deep into your pockets, as all proceeds will go straight back into the club. Gift one to your favourite goal or grab one for yourself while they last! Buy it here.



NEW COMMITTEE POSITIONS

We have a couple of new committee positions available in the new year and would love you to join us!


After a fantastic year and a half on the Committee, Beth Miles will be stepping down as Social Sec in the new year. We are looking for a new Social Sec to join the lovely Ellen Robertson. Initially a lot of events that you will be responsible for will be virtual, but you will play a key role in 2021 running socials that will be imperative to the financial stability of GDFC.


We also have a role opening up in the Mat Ches team as the wonderful Leah Kahn will be stepping down after 2 years in multiple Mat roles doing a fantastic job making sure we always have a pitch, a ref and a team to play with. The role will join Ciara and Martha to make up team Mat, we are are just finalising the role and will share the final details with you next week.


To apply for either of these roles please drop a note expressing your interest to info@goaldiggersfootballclub.com in the next 2 weeks. If you have any questions, please reach out to any of the committee or drop a note to the info@goaldiggersfootballclub.com.
