As you will be aware we are continuing to work hard growing our successful junior section which we hope will produce our heroes of the future. Next season we are looking to introduce additional age group teams initially starting with an under 7 team.
With the now large number of junior teams, one pitch at the Flamingo Land Stadium is unable to cope with the number of matches and training sessions that our coaches want to hold. Last season we had to hire pitches at other facilities around the area to be able to fulfil the fixture lists and cup commitments.
The good news is that we have found a solution, in that we have agreed to takeover the running of the Sports Foundation funded football facility at Scarborough Road, Filey in association with the Filey Community Sports Club. This will give us access to four full size pitches along with a clubhouse complete with changing rooms, a meeting room and catering facilities.
We are already planning work on the pitches over the summer to improve them for next season, where we need your help is with the clubhouse. We are putting a working party together on Sunday 19th May starting at 10am to spruce up the clubhouse and car park area. The tasks include cleaning, gardening, clearing out storage areas, painting the meeting room and some pointing on the roof and patio areas.
If we can get a good number there on the day the plan is to get it done as quickly as possible and finish off with a BBQ and some social time.
If you are able to help please contact Jack (Club Secretary) on 07538 903723 and also advise of any special skills you can bring to the party.
