RESUMING FRIDAY SESSIONS AT AYLESHAM
I’m delighted to say that we may resume our Friday sessions at Aylesham this week (4th December)!
We’ve been waiting for definitive FA guidelines and they, in turn have been waiting to clarify things with the government. The FA statement is here - https://www.thefa.com/news/2020/dec/01/fa-guidance-on-return-to-grassroots-football-011220
In advising that we are permitted to play, they stipulate that there should be minimal contact. Please observe this strictly. It’s important.
In addition, the Aylesham Leisure Centre have implemented some rules that we must observe. –
It would be understandable if some did not want to play, given the circumstances, so I’d be grateful if those who do would let me know that you are going to be there by replying to this email. I’m sure we will get the numbers but, should we not, we can cancel the pitch and not pay for it!
SPRINGTIME CHRISTMAS PARTY!
As some may remember, we were due to have our Christmas Party on December 12. Covid has put a stop to that, but we are looking to re-schedule it in April when, hopefully, life will be back to normal. It is a great occasion on which the whole club can get together so it would be a shame to lose it.
Some of you will know that our fellow club member, Dave Thompson, is the President of Marine FC who, on Saturday, secured their place in the third round of the FA Cup with a 120th minute winner against Havant and Waterlooville! Dave was there and tells me that the Champagne he’d bought for possible celebrations in the boardroom was removed by the players and sprayed around the pitch! Their reward – a home tie against Spurs!
In addition to his sponsorship of Marine, Dave also sponsors Canterbury Rugby Club’s ground and …Canterbury City Walking Football Club! That being the case, I’m sure that we’ll all be watching the third round game as it’s bound to be on TV, and supporting Marine – even that great Spurs supporter, Cedric, who will suspend his normal allegiance on that day …possibly!
That’s all folks – hope to see you on Friday!
