... Mr Pudding has asked me to put a quick 'calling all cars' message out ...

If you can help on match days, please can you email info@gcafc.co.uk (Claire) ... we need help with everything from scoring goals, working the bar, car parking, cleaning after games, stewards, turnstiles etc etc ... Claire is working with the supporters trust, so contact Iain/ Dave/ Trev if you prefer. But please help ... 

Charlie is confirmed for the big screen and PA ... other then that, I think it's everything else is still needed. Starting this Saturday!

So ... after much back and forth ... we've finally got a acholic licence to drink and serve around the ground. I really don't want to do 'throw away' plastic cups to use on match days, as yes, this is purely from a eco front to help the plant ... so we've two options that I can see:

1) Deposit (which is refunded like the rugby club do) on plastic GCAFC branded reusable pint cups.
2) Paper cups i.e. https://www.vegware.com/uk-en/catalogue/...reen_tree/ 

Thoughts ... plastic bottles aren't allowed, so we can't and won't be selling them out of the burger vans as first planned. Needs to be kegs and a mobile/ pop up bar type thing, sold only by the club direct due to the agreement with the police and others.

Anyone going?

It's the only place I've ever been to and got lost trying to find the ground thanks to the directions in the non-league directory.

I'm not sure if people saw this ... but we're been shortlisted for the Gloucestershire Business Awards 2021 ... Business In The Face Of Adversity.

https://www.business-live.co.uk/partners...1-21119103

It's not quite the 'sexiest man alive' award ... which I think I've a shot at too clearly ... Oh Eamonn is up for 'JCBs sexiest digger driver' ... so he's not doing too bad...

Now we know what it takes its seems ... lose £311k due to Covid, build a ground no one can visit and get a football team that isn't aloud to play football. I always told you it was a company number not a charity number at the bottom Smile

But joking aside ... I'm really quite taken back by this, so thank you all.

Many moons ago MP hosted a girls international football tournament. I think it may have been U16 but cannot be sure.  It included England and Scotland and I think a couple of other nations too but my old brain does not recall who. I've often wondered if any of the players we saw that day went onto make a name for themselves in the women's game; I'm posting on the off chance one of the historians here might know.  I remember being impressed on how professional the set ups were and while it was the FA who did most of the off field work, being chuffed at being given an England pin badge as a thank you for helping on the day,  the nearest someone of my astonishingly limited sporting ability was ever going to get to a cap!!  I found the badge the other day while looking for something else and it got me wondering.....thank you.

The score line shows a 7-1defeat but does not tell the whole story. Our opponents were again from a higher league and this was certainly a better performance than the last game. Yes there is more work to do but I thought tonight was a step forwards. Our goal was a real cracker. Onwards and upwards.

How do they end up trialing with us? Are they recommended from an agent, do they ask for a trial or do we ask them? I'd like to think that some of them have already been watched before hand by Adie Ming's from his work for Chelsea and we have an idea of who they are, Always live in the hope we find that player that comes in and just clicks and has a great season,but could easily go the other way!

parking for the Town City game tomorrow evening will be limited. Additional parking available at the Rugby Club (enter the Coop car park and go to the right of the store). Less than 5 minute walk to ground. 

The above from Cinderford
