FOOTBALLCO - PAID MEDIA THING
From Maisie from FootballCo. I work for media agency FootballCo and we’re after 3 fans going to next Friday’s England v Netherlands match at Wembley to take part in a short video before and after the game. This is for Google Pixel and we'll pay each participant £100 cash on the night once they meet us after the game for a post match catch up where we see if the opinion still rings true. We’ll ask for a passionate point of view so this could be score result, a players importance to the team, league result etc. Will work with you to decide on the best route. Just wondering if you have any contacts/players who are going to the game who you think could be good for this? Please pass on my contact details and ask them to get in touch! firstname.lastname@example.org

MORE TUESDAYS... Captain Scotty's potm was Kate for an insane free kick! The fans gave Scotty player of the week for her amazing energy all night, pressing their players constantly and taking the ball past them so many times!
The week was off to a flying start with a 12-2 win over Judesses at Monday 5s in Finsbury. Captain Tati’s POTM (and winning pastry recipient) was Ruby for scoring a whopper double hat trick and showing the rest of us how it’s done.
SATURDAY CLUBS UNITED 5s
A sunny day at Clubs United where we faced Hells Bells. Captain Amy had some beautiful saves in goal while Brooke’s 4 goals helped to secure a 5-2 win for the squad. Celia was given player of the game by Bells for her tenacity in defence, while Captain Amy’s player of the match was Suzanne for her blocks and stops at the back.
Our LWSFL fixture this week was a ten-goal thriller against Camden Town Blues, ending five goals apiece after a relentless contest in which we were unlucky not to claim all three points.
With tactics from Coach Rosanna and Georgia’s communication from the sidelines, we created some brilliant team goals and stayed strong defensively against a tough Camden side. Shoutouts for Brooke, Sam, and Scotty, who all joined us at short notice before coming off the bench to help secure the point.
Coach’s POTM was Ione, who made an immense effort in defence and created some outstanding build-up play, while Jahnavi was Captain Riley’s POTM after a confident and controlling midfield performance. A fantastic result for GDFC, and a second consecutive game unbeaten!
Legends came away with a loss and a win at Sunday 5s. Birthday goal Annabel’s POTM was Gaby for keeping us all in high spirits and digging deep. Shout out to Garcia for a hat trick.
