Well thats another year over! It seems to come and go so quickly but what a fantastic tournament once again. A huge thank you to all our sponsors, their contributions have allowed us to provide almost unrivalled awards for those fortunate enough to win either the Trophy or Plate finals. A massive thank you also to each and every team that joined us over the weekend, each year we endeavour to create the right environment for the young men and women in attendance to enjoy their football and also go away feeling like they have participated in something very special.
A thank you of course to all our volunteers, this weekend has once again shown what a fantastic membership this club has, we may not be the biggest club but we certainly have a large percentage of amazing people.
Coopers Hill even if I do say so looked simply awe inspiring over the two days and we have received so many positive reviews for our organisation and friendliness. The weekend has only gone to strengthen what this club has been and will always be; a family orientated club looking to guide and develop not only footballers but people. Much of the hard graft was done by our young men from teams and I cant describe how proud I am to help lead such a fantastic group of players and parents.Finally I must congratulate all the winning sides and all those that took part as the football on display was at times breathtaking.My last words however must go toward recognising the people that quite frankly gave up their weekend to help make so many people feel so welcome, when you are at the club next, make a special effort to thank the extraordinary effort put in by some very special people. Thank You..... Mark & Lorraine Dawber, Nicki & Lee Richards, Chris & Sharon Pate, Lisa Marie Wall, Ross Gates, Darren Bedford, Julie Williamson, Brian Goodey, James Goodey, Ollie Richards, Elizabeth & Simon Emmett, George Armstrong, Joe Burgess, my Dad & Step Mum; Russell & Maxine Turner, Brian & Lou, Michelle Smith, Sarah Jenkins, Neil Fuller. An extraordinary effort on top of all the other amazing volunteers.
Looking forward to seeing all our members at Presentation on Saturday June 13th.
