Hi all, I hope you're having a great summer and are looking forward to the 2019/20 season starting in 4 weeks time. I am sending this message out just to update people on a few things.
Thank you to everyone who has returned and paid for their registration for this season. I am currently processing every form that has been returned to ensure they are good to go for the new season. Every single new player to the club has to provide a copy of their birth certificate or passport, without it they cannot be registered for the league. Anyone that hasn't completed a form with £10 or provided ID (if necessary) needs to contact myself or their coach urgently, otherwise your child won't be registered for the upcoming season.
A reminder for all parents to please check their standing orders are correct and up to date. We don't want to be suspending players due to non-payment of subs but this will be done if we feel necessary.
You may have seen that the club has been working with the Liverpool FA to be part of the FA Coach Mentor Programme. Richard Jones will be working with club this year to help improve our players development.
We are still on the lookout for players at various age groups. We urgently require players at U11s (Year 6) and U14s (Year 9) but there are opportunities available at other ages. If you know of anyone who wants to be a part of our developing club please contact myself or the relevant coach.
We are also looking to volunteers to work with our current coaches to help improve the quality of our coaching to our players. Opportunities are again available at various age groups and the club are looking to support and develop anyone new to the role. If you or someone you know is interested please get in touch.
Finally with the start of the Premier League season starting tonight, an Orford FC Juniors league at Fantasy Premier League has been created. We invite anyone associated with the club to join, the league code is v4giza.
Thanks for your time, and I look forward to seeing you all throughout the season.
