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!


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.

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 and put 'NEWSLETTER' in the subject line.


From coach Rosanna: Hey! A friend of mine runs the Girls Super League and is organising a women and non-binary only reffing course through the FA. I will be attending the course so it would be great to see some of you there too! Dates aren’t confirmed but you can register interest with the link below. All information in photo also. It is a great way of giving back to a grass roots youth league and earn a bit of extra money. Plus, Goal Diggers are able to support fully with the cost of the course if needed.

Captain Gaias player of the match Millie. Some beautiful dynamic football played by all. 2-0 loss but managed to keep it 0-0 in the second half by keeping our heads up and staying calm. Some amazing passages of passing in the midfield and exceptional defending


These are hella cute, aren't you so lucky that you get to look at them?


Captain Kate chose Paula and Manager Amy chose Hannah! Well done to the whole team for a bitterly cold tight draw!
