Congratulations to Shane who will soon be jetting off to Las Vegas to tie the knot. The coaches attended an evening of fun to give him a good send off. Shane is now quite attached to his new hair, if not his whole outfit, and intends to wear it to the next training session.
Trials for current year 4s took place last week and parents have been sent now confirmation about the details for the next stage. Many thanks to the 70 children and their parents for attending. If you have not received details then please let us know on email@example.com
As part of the coach development process, BPSFA organised for a number of coaches to visit the home of Borussia Dortmund to watch training and see a first team game.
Of particular interest was the club's 1 million Euro Footbnaught, a cube building designed to train first touch and awareness.
A squad of 10-13s travelled to Germany at the weeknd to taste a bit of the German medicine that has gripped Europe at present. With four matches plus a host of activities lined up, the boys had a memorable time as you can see from the photos.
All year groups gathered on Sunday to celebrate the season at the BPSFA presentation day at Monkton Combe School. The boys enjoyed a session on the floats in the pool before heading outside for the barbeque. Awards were given to all who had represented the team, with extra awards given to:
Oliver G Ivor Powell Award presented by Harrison P
Charlie M Sharp Shooter Award
The hunt to track down players for next year's squads has begun! The first session on Monday saw 60 boys turn up in the Year 4 age group. Blessed with good weather, those on display did a good job of making the lives difficult for coaches. Next two sessions for this age groups are Wednsday and friday.
As part of the association's transition to the Bath and Wiltshire Schools Sports Trust, the football element of the organisation will now be known as Bath & Wiltshire Boys FA. New kit has already been opened and this will have its debut during the Germany tour.
