So well done everyone at Junior Reds.” The plan is to spend the money on new first aids kits for all of our teams.

Jack Petchey CBE said “ I am proud of all the programmes we have been involved in and every single young person who has participated. We aim to help young people believe that “If I think I can, I can, so that whatever their background, they will achieve, they will make positive contributions to society and they will be satisfied in their lives. I am so committed to this that aged 90 I still come to the office every day. It is why we have given £100m to realise this.”

Girls football tournament and the sun shone

Junior Reds are an enthusiastic supporter of Girls football. The Club organised a small tournament in early October between three Primary Schools – Bedonwell, Northumberland Heath and Pelham. Two competitions took place with one for School Years 3-4 and another for 5-6. The sun shone throughout and all girls played with enthusiasm and skill.

Club Chairman, Clive Chivers explained “We are keen to promote Girls football and in South East London few opportunities sadly exist. We try to play our part and have organised two tournaments for girls over the past few months. If girls wish to continue to play they are more than welcome to come along each Saturday morning to Bexleyheath Academy (start 10.00am) and to join our expanding Girls football session. We particularly require a couple of Under 9s and 12 players for our three teams.”

Bedonwell won the Year 5/6 competition piping Pelham by just one point in a close contest. 

Clive can be contacted on 07504 264 157 if you are interested in joining the Girls section of the Club.
