July Newsletter 2014

Hi All

 Now the season has ended we are already looking to next season by starting our registration process. Your managers will be sorting these themselves with you all. Registration fees for next season will stay the same as this year, £30 per player and £15 per sibling thereafter. Weekly subs will also remain the same, £2.50 per week for Youth and £1 training and £1.50 per match fee for Mini Soccer. The collecting of these subs seems to have worked well this year enabling teams to fund the much valued Astroturf we use over the winter months so a big thank you to you all for handing over your child’s subs at the correct time. If anyone is having trouble funding these, please do have a chat with your manager who will work with you to sort any problems.

 Our Club Youth AGM will take place on Sunday 13 July if anyone wishes to attend or become a volunteer at the Club.

 For the mini soccer teams you must not post scores or you risk being fined if discovered. It is also a requirement that you must refrain from using photographs and full names of either your own team or opposition players names on Facebook, twitter, in the paper or on any other social network site without gaining permission from their parent or team manager so please do abide by this rule.

 One important piece of information that we ask you to remember is that all our Managers/Coaches/Committee are volunteers and give up their time freely.  Each team Manager will select his/her team as they see fit. You should already know how you will be notified, ie text/email.  Please do acknowledge receipt of any team message saving the Manager valuable time chasing to see if your son/daughter is available to play etc.

 RESPECT - All our coaches qualifications are kept updated so please be assured each member of the coaching team is fully qualified and all have completed the CRB checks needed. If anyone is keen to join our team there are certain forms to complete for Child Welfare purposes but please do not let this put you off helping as this is essential for the care and wellbeing of all our children. With immediate effect, any new volunteers wishing to help their child’s age group will not be able to start helping until they have met with Claire, completed the relevant forms and completed a CRC check. Once this CRC disclosure has been received by the applicant, the information will be added to the FA site and only when it is recognised on their system as accepted can you start assisting that team. This is a new rule by the FA and one which we at Purnells will follow and abide by.

 Teas/coffees/hot choc and bacon butties etc are available to purchase from the club on Saturday mornings and on match day so pop into the club and see Dave and Mel. They also do amazing roasts on a Sunday so why not have a spot of lunch before or after your match or pick one up and take home now they are offering a takeaway roast service.

 Can you also please ensure you use black tape to match our regulation club colour black socks if you need to wear it following FA ruling.

 If anyone has any concerns about their team, please do speak to your team manager first and foremost. Only then if you do not get the help or answer you needed or if your concern is a Welfare issue, please do contact Claire, our Child Welfare Officer, on the number below and she will be more than happy to assist you.

 Kit Sponsor – We are looking for a team kit sponsor for our U15 next season. If anyone is interested please do get in touch with Claire to discuss.

 Boot Swap – Please feel free to donate or swap your old boots. You will find a tub in the container at the club where you can leave or swap boots or shin pads.

 Recycled Clothes – There is a charity container to the rear or the club for you to leave any clothes you no longer require to help raise funds.

 Cans – Please recycle all your old drinks cans by placing in black sacks and leaving in front of the clothes recycling bin at the club.

 We now have a new supplier for our jackets and all they need is a minimum order of 6. If you want to order one for your child please contact Claire with the size and initials needed and she will have a list on the go. All other items of clothing can be ordered by contacting Ed Bullock onkeypresstrophies@hotmail.com . He is now working from home so do email him with your requirements.

 Our Facebook pages are regularly updated so do take a look. Please do remember to use them correctly and not by putting unnecessary comments on. Feel free to post photos etc you have taken if you think they would be of interest to everyone (Purnell Football ones, not your holiday snaps!!) If you also can please like the Midsomer Norton and District Youth Football League page also.

 We do have a new website so please do take a look. www.purnellsportsyouth.co.uk .  Please feel free to send Claire anything you wish to add ie: - pictures, news, photos etc and she will now be able to add them on.

 Below are the links for:-
