Sadly the weather has beaten us….. I have had a look at the weather forecast for the rest of the week and taken the early decision to cancel this week’s Friday Football (1st February).  Sorry kids.

For the safety of the children (and the adult helpers) we will not play on an icy tennis courts, it’s just too dangerous.

Football Update

Firstly I would like to thank the Parwich Independent Welfare Fund for their amazing donation to Friday Football.
We would also like to thank the Parwich villagers for their continued support for Friday Football and to James Farrar for helping run this group each week…. thanks James
James and I are now going to take 2 weeks off. Friday Football will return 11th January 2019.

Tomorrow (Christmas Day) is the annual crazy football game played on Nethergreen. We start at 11.00 and normally last about an hour. This year we have a guest referee, who understands our lack of rules!
I think it’s going to be the muddiest year ever and therefore the most fun ever! hope to see you there!

When we finish the Legion will be open for business… we might need a beer or two…

Remember the small print all players play at their own risk….

Football Help Needed on Wednesday

To parents and children of Friday football, and other helpful villagers

I was wondering if you can spare a maximum of an hour to help repair the Parsons Croft Football area.

You may have seen previously reported on the blog that due to the dry weather the lines on the football pitch have cracked and opened up making the pitch a little unsafe. Thankfully Peter Trewitt has provided us with approx.. 600kg of fine soil (free of charge… thank you Peter!) to fill in the affected areas. I was hoping for some help doing this.

We will be on the football pitch between 7pm – 8pm this Wednesday evening (18th July). Small trowels, small spades and buckets are all that are required.

Note: If you have any spare bags of sand or soil hidden at the back of your garage feel free to bring this down as I am not sure that 600kg’s of soil is enough. Smaller children can also help.

We understand that eventually the cracks should close together naturally, but this may take many months, so to help speed up the process we are giving the land a helping hand.

Thank you for your continued support, hope to see you Wednesday.

Tonight will be the last Friday football until the back end of the summer holidays. James and I are going to take a short break from football and recharge our batteries.

Can everyone be aware that due to the amazing weather we have recently had, the lines around the football pitch have dried, cracked and opened up. These cracks present a trip hazard to people using the pitch or walking across the area.  I have discussed the matter with the council and have experimented using sand to fill in the cracks, but we are not sure how successful this will be. The issue will be discussed at the next council meeting to see what options we can consider (all suggestions welcome).

Please be reminded that children (and adults) play on the football pitch at their own risk. I will remind the children of these potential hazards before we start.

Kind regards

Help Needed

Friday football update
Hi all
I just wanted to update the village on where we are up to with Friday football and request your help.
Friday football continues to go very well. Each week we probably have 20+ children come… most of which are older children, however we have around 4-6 children under 7 years these children are a little small and too young to join the larger children for the main game and therefore they play their own game.
In terms of current support it’s just myself and James Farrar. My current work commitments mean that I am not available every week and rely very heavily on James. Without James’s dedication to the Friday football their would be no Friday football. Also note James has the necessary CRB checks to allow him to work with children.

Our club finances are good… we continue to be very careful how we spend your/our money, the main costs are new balls damaged by the hawthorns located behind the goals.

We will probably take a couple of weeks break over the summer holiday period to recharge our batteries we will post this on the blog nearer the time.

As stated above the Friday Football is currently James and myself… we desperately need additional helpers. These people do not need to have any football skills at all! They would be there to watch over and support the young children… ideally this should be the parents of the young children, but we would like others to help James or myself especially when one of us are unavailable. Our main interest is to safe guard the children and ensure they have a good time (and get them off their PlayStations!!!).
Our commitment and dedication to the Friday football hasn’t changed but we do need more help. If we are unable to get this extra help then we may need to restrict Friday football to the older children only, this is not something we would like to do.

Finally I take this opportunity to thank James for his continued time, dedication and support to the Friday football group…..

If you think you can help please get in touch…. thank you
Jason J
