Fixtures for the ladies’ 1s and the men’s 1s are now up on the website!! The ladies, promoted last year, are now in the East league Division 2 NW. Their opening matches is against Arch-rivals Ely City 1s – should prove to be a great opener!! They’ll also be up against Cambridge Nomads 1s, Cambridge University 2s and St. Neots 1s among others… The men were close to being relegated last year from Div 5NW, but should be confident of a good season this year providing the lads give a little more commitment to the team. Their opening fixture is […]

How many teams, what leagues etc. No of teams to remain as in 2009-2010 i.e. 3 ladies’ and 1 men’s team. Ladies structure to be a first, second and third team instead of the current first team, Suffolk second team and Cambs second team. Leagues: Men – East (as last season) Ladies 1st – East Ladies 2nd – Suffolk Division 1 (were Cambs Div 1 last season) Ladies 3rd – Cambs Division 1 (were Suffolk Div 1 last season) The reason for swapping the 2nd and 3rd teams is to allow maximum movement of players between the 3 teams, to […]
Who will coach which teams, what is expected of the coaches re attendance, buying in coaching time etc. Chris Evans will coach the men, Colin the ladies 1st team, Chris Evans the ladies 2nd team and Twm the ladies 3rd team. To make this work changes will also be made to training times, discussed later. As for expectations for coaches, all teams need a coach not only on Tuesdays, but on Saturdays too. All coaches have agreed to be present on Tuesdays and Saturdays as much as possible. 95% of the time was suggested at the meeting and coaches agreed. […]
What we want from them and who will run them Colin will run the selections. The coaches will allocate players to one of the three teams but this will not prevent movement of players between teams when player-progression or circumstances require it. Players can expect to play for the designated team most of the time and can go to that team captain with queries. Players will be put through a range of exercises to assess their skills and abilities followed by some games. Selections will be held over a few weeks, and each player will be assessed by at least 2 coaches. The aim […]
Expansion from current Tuesday training (subject to confirmation of pitch bookings) Men and ladies will have separate sessions, both 90 minutes long. Both sessions will be held on a Tuesday. All 3 ladies teams will train from 19:00-20:30 (on a full pitch) and the men will train from 20:30-22:00 (on half a pitch). This gives the ladies (1st team in particular) some extra time for additional work e.g. short corners if required and if it doesn’t interfere with the men’s session. The second session i.e. the men’s session will only be on half the pitch in order to keep pitch […]
Agreement on how this is expected to work so all players are treated equally The final decision on who plays, who subs and when, is down to the coaches, BUT they must be consistent and players must be kept well informed at all times. Captains and coaches must be informed if players are unable to make a training session. Consistent absence from training without a good reason (e.g. work, family commitments, out of town etc are good reasons, “I don’t enjoy training” is not…) will not be tolerated. If the reasons are deemed not good enough by the coaches, that […]
