 Hi All

This season is now well underway and fingers crossed we don’t have to cancel too many fixtures because of the weather.  

Not much to report/comment except the usual:-


1)       For every parent that volunteers and commits, the £25 they earn will help towards their childs Astroturf fees. All you will have to do, is spend a morning in Bath with other club members having a laugh, watching the race and be provided with a free lunch!!For every parent that volunteers and commits, the £25 they earn will help towards their childs Astroturf fees. All you will have to do, is spend a morning in Bath with other club members having a laugh, watching the race and be provided with a free lunch!! For the mini soccer teams you must not post scores or you risk being fined if discovered.

2)       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.  

3)       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.

4)       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.

5)       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.

6)       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.

7)       Don’t forget to use the new carpark when at training or matches. To get to this just drive past the main Club entrance and turn left into Cam Valley Playing Fields. The new tea hut will also be open on match days for all your hot drinks and snacks. All proceeds will go back into the development of the pitches so if you can support them that is fantastic. Hot drinks all £1. Also crisps and chocolate bars available.

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.

Claire has just put a new order in for jackets and will not do another one for the next few months. She will email again when an order is available. All other items of clothing can be ordered by contacting Ed Bullock on keypresstrophies@hotmail.com .

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.
