13 Jun 2017 : Junior Membership 2017/8
Dear Member
I realise its a couple of months away from the start of the season (9th September) but the junior committee is in full swing getting organised.
Coaching will be on Saturdays at 10am and we plan to enter two under 10 teams, two under 9 teams, two under 8 teams and one under 7 team into the South Surrey and North East Hants leagues.  So in order for us to be ready for all our junior players it would be very helpful if you could fill out the membership form now so we can make sure we have enough coaches and teams to cater for everyone.  
Our membership fee has increased to £40 for the season.  I hope you will understand the need for this but if you would like more information on where the money is spent please do ask me and I will happily explain.
The club is also looking into offering a week night football coaching for those players keen to get an extra session in during the season.  While there is still daylight, sessions would be in Fernhurst, thereafter we would find a suitable indoor venue or astro pitch with outside lights.  There would be an additional cost for this session.

So to sum up please do the following
  1. Fill out the attached word or pdf membership form.
  2. Arrange for your membership to be paid prior to the 9th September.
  3. Let us know if your child would be interested in extra coaching during the week and if so what day.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Dear Junior Member

08 May 2017 : Beacon Hill Tournament Success for U8's and U7's!

Two teams entered the tournament the BH this year, an under 8 team with Jon, Alex and Dan and an under 7 team with Craig.

The Under 8's played on Sunday and did not lose a game, and tied just one with the current holders of the title, coming out victorious and winning the trophy which is an amazing achievement!

The Under 7's played on the Saturday and Craig did a wonderful job of looking after the team.  They were extremely unlucky coming 4th in the competition as they only lost one game, tied 4 and won 3.

Brilliant effort from both team, coaches, managers and parents.  Thank you.

19 Apr 2017 : Club Request
Dear Club Member

Next season to enable us to keep all our junior players in their teams and respective leagues the club urgently requires more coaches.  The FA now require us to have a qualified level 1 coach for each team.

As you all know we are very lucky to have our volunteers who are FA qualified and they will be given teams to manage next season.  Like many other clubs, we have also been relying on parents to help coach at matches which unfortunately is no longer an option available to us.  As it currently stands the club is short of 2/3 coaches for next season to comply with FA regulations.

If you have a family member, a friend that may be interested or you, yourself then we would very much like to hear from you.  Anyone from the age of 16 can complete a Level 1 FA Coaching qualification.  The club will happily pay for your course in return for your help.  It's a great opportunity to get a qualification, gain experience outside of school, college or your job, looks great on a CV to potential new employers that you volunteer with children and above all is a fun, rewarding opportunity coaching young children in a sport they love.

Fernhurst FC would be extremely grateful if could bear this in mind and if you know of anyone who is interested then I am very happy to talk them through what is involved.
I am also attaching the minutes from our AGM for your interest.
