GDFC News 28 September


Please respect the fact that Covid-19 means lower numbers at training than we would like. We are doing our very best to ensure we stick to all the FA guidelines re Covid safety - this includes limiting training sessions to 30 people including a coach. We are extremely lucky to have the space to hold two Covid-safe training sessions at Haggerston - with 60 members present.

In a non Covid world we will be able to have 80+ people at training due all the space at our beautiful new training home. So we can look forward to our world without a training waitlist in the future but in the meantime please be patient and please only sign up if you have every intention of attending training.

As the advanced waitlist has been consistently the largest, especially on keeper weeks, this week we trial different sized groups. We have also noticed that the on-the-day-dropout rate is 2 x higher in the academy group (20%) compared to the advanced group (10%).

This week we will have the following signups:

  • Advanced: 29

  • Keepers: 8

  • Intermediate: 10
