All Gaffers were there
What a night, another fantastic turnout for the annual Penn & Tylers Green FC curry night. This is the now well established event in the club’s diary where all the committee members, director of football, managers, coaches and other volunteers from all, and I mean all, the age groups came together for a “curry and a pint (or two or three)”. Tonight was all about integration, exchanging ideas on football and maybe (after the fourth pint) changing The World?
The evening was put to good use because Club Physio John Grimsdell and A-Team Manager Paul Benning explained about the recently purchased defibrillator; Chairman Tony Hurst explained the subs structure for the season and Secretary Andreas Latta gave an update on the ground development project.
After the speeches (and luckily they were short) everyone tucked into the excellent curry, well supported by the aforementioned amber nectar or fermented grape juice.
The icing on the cake was the appointment of the Tournament Director of the Penn & Tylers Green FC Six-A-Side-Festival of Football for the May Bank Holiday in 2014. Scott Marshall took up the mantle and we are proud to have him in board for this important fund raising event for the club. It was emphasised on the night that everyone in the club will have to support Scott to make it a success.
The evening (and this is why we are doing it) also managed engagement between the First Team Manager and the Girls Section resulting in a commitment for the First Team helping with their coaching sessions. The evening also helped and facilitated the introduction of the Under 5s to the club. We all know in about 13 years’ time some of their players will play for our Senior Teams here at French School Meadows.
What a fantastic night (with some fund raising towards the ground development fund). Thank you to all of you for participating.
