Another successful event on a sunny Bank Holiday weekend

Waiting for their medals

This year’s Tournament Director Scott Marshall can be pleased. All the hard work over the last 12 months by him and all the volunteers of Penn & Tylers Green FC paid off again. All the boys & girls who played had a great time and played some terrific football. All the mums, dads, grandmas, granddads, aunts, uncles and friends cheered the players on and contributed to two fantastic days of football and above all fun. Continue reading…

All Gaffers were there

Food was good

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 Committee was happy

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.

Tournament Director training hard already

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.

Andreas Latta, Secretary

Football Shows Its Heart As £1.2m Defibrillator Fund Launched

John Grimsdell has the club at heart

One year on since Fabrice Muamba suffered a cardiac arrest on the pitch, The Football Association (FA) and the British Heart Foundation (BHF) have teamed up to help save lives in England’s football clubs and their communities. In a unique partnership, more than 900 defibrillators will be made available to clubs at Steps 1 to 6 (Penn & Tylers Green FC is a Step 6 Club) of the National League System and clubs in the Women’s Super League to help save the lives of cardiac arrest casualties.

Not one of the Penn Winning Teams…. Finally the weather was kind to us! 2 days of glorious sunshine brought the crowds in to an action packed weekend of junior football at French meadows over the bank holiday weekend as we welcomed over 1200 boys and girls from clubs across the south East of England. The fantastic Penn scenery that some take for granted basked in very high quality football that was enjoyed by supporters young and old. For the first time in a long time (possibly in our 27 year history as a tournament!) Penn also  celebrated success. The Sunday morning session had 2 Penn winners in the U11, with both the boys and the colts winning their respective competitions, a  great achievement,  and the U11s were deservedly the winners of our Martin Gladman Trophy as best performing Penn team of the weekend. The Sunday afternoon brought more great football, but the highlight for many was the Fantastic footballers training session, as the U5s delighted the crowd with their enthusiasm and skills Monday morning brought more success for Penn in the U12 Colts and the U14 Colts, which was quickly followed in the afternoon with ANOTHER Penn win in the U10s. 1 Penn winner at our own tournament is a rarity, but 5 truly is incredible, well done to all those teams. The tournament was a great success, and could only be so with the dedication of a small number of volunteers and the generous help of parents over the weekend, who I would personally like to thank. The Football club committee really pulled together to ensure the tournament went ahead and is  a testament to their very hard work and dedication they put in on a regular basis. We are still counting the monies and will have the final figure avaialbe at our AGM next month… The tired bodies but huge smiles on the players as they left is the reason we continue to put on what is quite simply the best tournament in the south east of England and is a fitting legacy to Gavin Lance’s work and effort  in bringing the tournament together at its outset.

Let’s put this is to some sort of perspective. Our second from bottom Division 5 boys beat the only other Division 5 side Stokenchurch 4-0.  All of the other teams we played including Marlow, Flackwell Heath and AFC Lightning, all play their regular football in the higher Booker Wholesale leagues. In total, out of 5 games we won 3, drew 1 and lost one. Accumulating an astounding 7 goals and 10 points overall. This then put us into the semi final play-offs against one of the two Holtspur sides. After a tough battle we eventually lost by a single goal to nil.  A fantastic achievement and a well deserved pat on the back for all the effort this season.
