Christmas party

On Tuesday 12th December we held our Christmas Party at Long Lane Football Club. Len Duvall OBE AM our new Chair person, presented our Jack Petchey Achievement award winners with their medals.

These went to:

Jake Pillar Charlton Park Academy, RB Greenwich

Jordan Logan Logan-Cross (Drumbeat School, Lewisham

Mitchell Double: Ian Mikardo School, Tower Hamlets

Mick French-Gibbens presented the Shea French-Gibbens Memorial trophy to Kyle Alexander, who used to play for Greenwich PFC. He was scouted to play for a Sevenoaks, a premiership club and then gained 5 caps playing for England at the Powerchair Football World Championships. Kyle and Shea were best friends. Shea sadly passed away last summer.

Our Patron, Paul Elliott CBE attended the evening. It was wonderful to have his company. He is probably our greatest supporter in the world and has been for 15 years. Thank-you, Paul for your overwhelmingly supportive speech.

Thank-you to all our players, friends, trustees and employees who attended this sensational evening and especially to Councillor Mick Hayes, our vice president and his wife Gill. You are very dear to us.

Thanks also to Mick Northwood the CEO of Long Lane who continues to support us as guests of his fabulous club, Long Lane FC. Our thoughts are with you in these difficult times.

Merry Christmas to everybody!
