On the 29 September, SJFA reached a further milestone. Our 8’s and under 14’s “ONE SQUADS” kicked off their League matches in the Chiltern Church Junior League. Our under 16’s kick off their League season on the 13 October.
When the “One Team” kicked off their term last year, joining a League was a vision and would be a “great to have” objective. As I stood on the sideline, it was a joy to watch our coaches, parents and boys as they got ready for their first matches. They knew they were representing not just the SJFA but our community. What was also pleasing to see was how all our coaches and players were fully kitted up in their black tracksuits and new gold kits. At this point I would like to thank our sponsors for their support – Longcord (tracksuits) and Dentistry For You (gold kits).
The “ONE TEAM” would like to thank the coaches for the Under 8’s, 14’s and 16’s for their commitment and drive. What was a dream only 12 months ago is now a reality. Inshallah this will provide a platform for the other age groups to join a League in the future.
