Chairman Chat DECEMBER
Hello everyone, with the year soon closing and Christmas upon us i think it is only right to say thanks to all the coaches, parents and other supporters of Port of Bristol Youth Football Club.
Volunteering, like with all grassroot clubs, has been key to our own success and continued growth over the years. Developing relationships over time has allowed us to form a structure that has really been tested with the ever changing landscape, uncertainty of the past year and this has created frustrations for all involved... even for those of you that always are at the front of the queue putting yourselves forward to help the football club out.
We, as a club, will always need more help, more bodies stepping forward to referee a game or pack away matchday equipment and this is to just to sustain what we currently have developed at this amazing club... little things matter and so many of you help already, so I want to thank you all on behalf of all 350+ players with us.
We have been back without any real issues but Covid-19 seems to be raising its ugly head again. With this in mind we may experience more unexpected gaps, whether that be matches or our players missing from training/games, so please continue to stay safe.
We have and had a number of cases recently with our players but thankfully they all have been well enough to return to football shortly after their self isolation periods and I for one am glad to see them playing again.
We also welcome a number of adults to the club who are now coaching or helping out age groups.
- James Gregory (U6 Green)
- Kevin Mills (U8 Green)
- Daniel Clifton (U10 White)
These are always great nights and we are so happy that we are able to host it...of course there is someone very special making an appearance.
A shorter version, but I hope reading these 'monthly reviews' and the on-goings at your club are a benefit to you. I really am looking forward to seeing what 2022 brings us as a club, but lets hopefully enjoy the last few games of 2021 first.
If I don't see you at any of the clubs training sessions or matches, I wish you and your families
A Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year.
