THE SUNDAY LEAGUE TEAM WHO HAVE BEEN
PROFESSIONALLY FILMING ALL THEIR MATCHES SINCE 1990 !

          OUR PREPARATIONS FOR SEASON 2022-2023  -  UPDATED (28th July 2022)

Pre-Season Training has now started on Thursday evenings on the grass at Enfield Playing Fields near to the rugby pitches, with details of meeting times and particular dates we are training on being posted in our private WhatsApp Group for our players, Committee members & parents. Prospective new players will only be invited to train with us if they are being brought along by somebody who is already a club member….unlike what we did previously when we took on anybody who randomly contacted us via e-mail or social media. We always get bombarded with requests from players we don’t know wanting to train with us and join us because we are a You Tube team. We do not need those players any more as we want to keep it strictly to friends & family from now on.

We played our first Pre-Season Friendly of the Summer on Sunday 24th July against our regular Pre-Season opponents Estudiantes London (who we have Committee member links with), but due to player holidays throughout August we have had to call off any further Friendlies that were originally planned as we only have a squad of 16 regular players. We are not particularly looking to sign up any more regular players at this stage as we are being loyal to those who played for us last season, so there is no point in us playing Friendlies with a team full of ex-players and trialists. We already have the necessary teamwork from last season as everybody is staying with the club, and our players have been keeping themselves fit during the Summer anyway.

We are confident that we can at least finish in the top half of the table this season and push for promotion if our players continue to improve as much as they did towards the end of last season.

  

BARNET SUNDAY LEAGUE DIVISIONS FOR SEASON 2022-2023 -  UPDATED (28th July 2022)

The Barnet Sunday League Constitution for Season 2022-2023 was announced at their A.G.M. on the 27th June and (for the time being) it can be viewed here on their Twitter page.

We have now gone up to Division Five (along with every other club from Division Six last season who did not finish as Winners or Runners-Up) because Division Six is now going to be the division for newly-formed clubs whereas last season it was the other way round.  

All the League’s divisions plus fixtures and results can be viewed HERE ON FULL-TIME.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING & PRESENTATION NIGHT

Our Annual General Meeting/Presentation Night for Season 2021-2022 was held on Friday 1st July at the Edmonton Sports & Social Club with 27 players, Committee members and supporters in attendance. With most of our players making an effort to attend (in stark contrast to a lot of previous seasons where most would only bother if we had won a League title !), it showed that we had made the right decision to re-start the club back in May last year with a new young team of 16 & 17-year-olds, and the main theme of the evening was just how rapidly they had improved against all expectations in what was their first season of adults football.
As for the trophy awards, Dapo Alaoye won both the Players’ Player of the Year and the Supporters Player Of The Year Awards, Keith & Tracey Charles were presented with the Clubman Award and Myreon Keane received the Club Top Goalscorer Trophy. One of our veteran players, Leon McKenzie-McKay received a shield for completing 200 matches for the club. Unfortunately Tobi Charles was unable to attend the meeting to receive his Most Improved Player Award, so that will be presented to him at Pre-Season Training instead.

The Goal of the Season was won by Dapo Alaoye for his goal in our Home match against Chefchaouen Berbers back in November.

  

‘OLD BOYS’ MATCH

We are now planning another attempt to stage an ‘Old Boys Match’ for our ex-players with Sunday 18th September the proposed date. Hopefully this will give players enough notice this time, although we are fully aware that some players (who do not have kids at school) may be away on holiday at that time of year and others will be tied up with involvement in Youth football where they will not be able to make a 10.30 am or a 12.30 pm Kick-Off…which are the only times we can use our pitch at the Edmonton Sports & Social Club. (We prefer to use our Home ground so that we have a clubhouse on site for beers afterwards rather than hiring a 3G pitch in the late afternoon or evening and then finding the nearest pub).

Although our most recent attempt at getting an Old Boys match arranged had to be cancelled, we did manage to get some of our Greats Of The Past along to a couple of our current team’s recent matches to meet up and have a beer or two in the clubhouse afterwards, and in the picture left (from L-R) are club legends Trevor Hughes, Kieran McGregor, Jerome Burnikell, Alan Lee & Steve Cokell, while our first-ever goalkeeper from when the club was formed in 1976, Paul Noonan, turned up to watch our new young team’s game. We also had Tony Tombling turn up to watch our final game of the season the following week and it was great to see these players again after so many years.  

Our Club Facebook Group and an Old Boys WhatsApp Group will continue to be used to arrange these reunions.
