Jack Petchey Award Girls for Oct 2017

Amy of the Junior Reds Robins Under 16`s is the first winner of the new Jack Petchey Girls award for October 2017. Coach John said “ I would like to nominate Amy for the Jack Petchey award as she has been with the team from the beginning and throughout the Summer and has been keen for the team to progress even when we only had 5 or 6 players. She is always the last person to leave training, no matter how she is feeling, to help me clear up and talk about what we need to improve as a team. Amy always takes on board everything I am trying to do to make our team into a competitive squad. She is my captain and my eyes and mouth on the pitch as most of my instructions go through her which she handles very well even if she is having a bad game. I can`t thank her enough for what she brings to the team”.

Well done to Amy from all at Junior Reds

Jack Petchey award for October 2017

The Jack Petchey award for October goes to Keola, the assistant coach of the under 13 Knights.

Coach Naden said of Keola “ I would like to nominate our assistant coach Keola 19 years old for his outstanding commitment and contribution to coaching. He attends every Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday from Stratford, East London. He is always punctual, polite and brings amazing energy and enthusiasm. He is a young talent with complete dedication to coaching in a way that develops young people. Keola has inspired the players to achieve more, both by setting homework challenges and well planned training routines. It has been a pleasure to coach with him and I wanted him to be recognised with a Petchey award as this is the type of behaviour we want to encourage from our young coaches coming through the system.”

Well done Keola from all at Junior Reds

Jack Petchey award for Sept 2017

Congratulations to Jake of the Under 17 Valiants for receiving the Jack Petchey award for September. Coach Mark said of Jake: “Jake has played for Junior reds since the age of 6 years. Jake always attends training and is the first to help set up and tidy up. He is the first to welcome new boys to the team and help them to settle in. The only time Jake has missed a match is if he has have been injured but still turns up to support the rest of the team. Jake will often lead the warm up for the rest of the boys. Jake always gets nominated by the other players in the team for players player. He leads by example both on and off the pitch giving his all every weekend. Jake has signed up for another season which means he would have represented Junior Reds for over 11 year”.

Well done Jake from all at Junior Reds.
