Player Shout Outs
Hi keepers - hope you enjoyed last week, unfortunately no keeper training this week. Regular training should be sunny vibes though - see you there!
CLUBS UNITED TUESDAY BEG/INT LEAGUE
Hi Goals Sign ups for this new inclusive League, welcoming all women, non-binary and gender non-conforming folk, are now live in the store. Fixtures start on Tuesday 31st May with the first fixtures being posted next Wednesday. Sign up now, good vibes guaranteed!
We're also looking for a league manager for this game. You'll get free access to the league (or we'll refund you if you already paid) and job includes scheduling the posts to go each week and making sure we've got a team. It's a really easy way to give a little back. Get in touch with Paula if you're keen!
SPONSORSHIP WITH NEW BALANCE
Massive thank you to all those that have voted and those that commented on the legal bits of the contract. The results are below:
Martha & Gaia had a meeting with New Balance on Wednesday and we're hoping to address some of the terms that people were most concerned by and make sure it's less risky for us and worth it. This includes, no requirement for kits to be worn at training (instead we'll get NB bibs), no requirement for us to produce any video / live content (the agency will create anything they want us to post beyond photos) and some improvements to the contract generally.
If you're interested in the changes we've asked for the contract they're mostly what was bought up by members here:
If they are able to accommodate our changes, we'll share the final contract when we can with you all!
A wonderful evening at Tuesday 7s - one team won 1-0 and the other 4-0. Player of the week from Captain Flo went to Lily (of course) for her stunning play and to be honest she was the only one still running at the end. We'd love to see more of you join us on a Tuesday night, it's really great vibes, lovely pitch, long games and good teams.
Training players of the week were Lily (again of course!!!), Freya (first one for this creative goal), Niamh (body on the liiiiine) and Frewyn! Well done all on a great session and thanks to the coaches.
The Beginners might have lost both their games today but some excellent performances in defeat none more so than from Courtney, making her debut with a rousing performance than came so close to being capped with a goal.
