These boots provide a chance for everyone in the footballing community to access quality gear. All proceeds from Tondu Boots go to The Jacob Abraham Foundation. So far, they've raised an amazing £5,301.00! Learn more at:

โญ๏ธ Both clubs are rallying the football community to donate any unused boots, regardless of condition, to keep these incredible schemes thriving! Let's make football more accessible and inclusive for everyone. โญ๏ธ

FREE WEEKEND REQUESTS

Posted by: Adam Foskett - Junior Fixture Secretary


Please see the below details clarifying the requirements to request a free weekend this season.

Approval for a free weekend must be requested 14 days prior to the date required. The deadline for a request is 8.00pm the Friday night two weeks before the date.

A more detailed email with examples has been sent to club junior fixture secs and club secs too.

All Junior teams can have a maximum of four free weekends per season.

Early requests are very welcome, if teams have tours or school trips etc. planned for say Easter next year it's much better to put the request in now rather than later as at the end of the season when we're all fighting against time to fulfil fixtures I may not be able to grant permission then.

Hopefully, if we can all work to the above there will be no confusion or disappointment!

Many thanks in advance โšฝ๏ธ

Adam
