Mini Soccer pitches – and now for the rain!

A small “Working party” gathered in August to provide some loving care to the mini soccer pitches at Danson Youth Club. 

It was apparent from a recent activity that some of the areas, especially around the goal mouths, were in need of reseeding as the grass had become non-existent. The group got together and dug, raked and sowed a large quantity of grass seed. All that is needed now is some rain!

Pictured from left to right after a mornings hard graft are Tom, Mark. Andy, Terry, John and Sam. Others helping were Angela and Clive.

Thank you everyone for volunteering to help get the mini pitches ready for the new season. 


New Adult Seniors team Athletic take to the field

Adult JR Athletic (15-16)The newest club Adult team played their first game in July taking on an established Welling United side. The players performed well and have started to develop an understanding. The team won 3 – 1 in this pre- season friendly game.

Manager, Geraint Jones, said “In response to various player enquiries it was decided to form a new Junior Reds Adult team and we started to form in early June. We have been training at Danson Park for just a few Saturday mornings and in a short space of time now have a squad of 11 players. We do still require a few players so if there are any Adult players wishing to join the team then please contact me on 07846 593 472″.

The team are known as the “Athletic” to distinguish from the three other Senior Junior Reds sides. “Athletic” will be playing home matches at King
Georges Fields in Sidcup and are members of the Woolwich and Eltham Sunday League, competing in Division 2.

PLAYER REGISTRATION:- All managers are reminded that ALL player registration cards need to be return to Angela and Andy ASAP so that the registration process can be started on the 1st August 15. Please bear in mind registering all players across all the various teams and leagues is a massive task for the club, so we really need your assistance in ensuring the cards are completed fully / accurately and returned immediately to ensure the club does not incur any fines from the various leagues that have to be engaged.

Thanks for your assistance in advance.

Danson Youth Centre “Playday” – all stars

It was a very busy day for all the Junior Reds helpers at the annual Danson Youth Centre “Playday” in Bexleyheath.

Danson Play Day team

An estimated 2,000 people attended with many of the children keen to test their football skills on all the Junior Red’ activities. The Club organised two “Beat the Goalie” activities and thanks go to Tom, Abi, Lewis, Finlay and George for taking goalkeeper duties. Terry and Joanne organised the queues and gave some advice to the penalty takers. At the same time a football dribbling/ skills time trial was organised and run by Karl and Daniel. Two small sided games also ran simultaneously over the day and thanks go to Jake for this. Whilst all this took place Andy, Angela and Clive promoted the Club explaining the teams and highlighting the “Saturday Soccer Club”. It was exhausting work but a highly satisfying day.

All helpers were real stars in representing Junior Reds and a big thank you is extended to all those who assisted with running a really successful event.

U10 Athletic enjoy their day at the FA Community Football Festival

Under 10 AthleticUnder 10 Ath interview The Under 10 Athletic team enjoyed their day at the FA Community Football Festival on Saturday at Ten-em-Bee Sports Club which was organised by the London FA in partnership with McDonalds and Lewisham Council.

Team Manager, Justin Skinner, reported on the day ” The whole day was excellent. The boys had a photo opportunity with the Community Shield and ex Arsenal players Martin Keown and Nigel Winterburn. We then had a skills session with  FA Coaches, which the boys really enjoyed. The tournament
kicked off after the skills session. We played three teams, two Elmstead teams and one team from Stockwell. We won two games and drew the third.  The boys played incredibly well, coming from behind in their second game to draw 2 – 2. After their games the boys, Managers and Parents were all interviewed by a professional cameraman. The games and interviews were later aired during the Community Shield on Sunday. All day there was something for the whole family to get involved with – games, competitions and skills sessions including a Girls only session with Casey Stoner, the England Ladies player.
The tournament itself was free along with everything that was taking place throughout the day. The boys walked away with free goodies as well. The whole team including all their families had a great time. We will definitely be entering again next year”.

Thanks go to Jamie, Terry, Lee and Dave (Team Managers) for arranging an enjoyable evening.
