SEASON REVIEW 2016/17
Onwards an upwards! Another magnificent season!
Due to popular demand all of our three groups for Reception to Year 5 has been at their maximum. This has meant a waiting list is now firmly up and running for new members to join.a
Our development fixture programme has massively expanded. Aside from our providing match day opportunities for school Years 1,2,3,4&5 players against JTC Jersey Wanderers, Trinity FC, St. Lawrence Academy, Rozel Rovers FC and St Pauls FC, this was also followed up with a Football Festival experience at St.Clements FC Minis World Cup in April 2017.
This season saw the new additions of the Jersey FA Community Festivals being run at Springfield Stadium through the JFA Community Coach Daniel Seviour, whom we also had the pleasure of attending GS united to run a practice sessions for your youngsters too.
We were also invited to play in the first JTC Wanderers Invitational Minis Festival recently that was a resounding success on and off the field of play.
In early 2017 we also introduced new coach Jack Guille to our players and next season Jack will be leading the sessions for our Reception and Year 1 group supported by Coaches Aaron and Damon.
Without a shadow of doubt, our youngsters have been amazing once again this season! It really is wonderful to witness and a privilege to be part of their development. Players are improving week on week in our practice sessions and match day opportunities. They are growing in confidence and having great fun whilst doing so!
Our coaching staff continue to work hard around the clock to produce the safest and most enjoyable environment for our young players to thrive in. Updating their coaching knowledge through refresher courses to ensure that we are always up-to-date with latest developments that will be of benefit to the players we coach.
We are delighted to announce a sponsorship agreement with Jobhunter.je again for the next two seasons. Jobhunter.je will provide minis football kits to our current players in School Year 1-5 from September 2017. Jobhunter’s support for GS United has brought a sense of belonging in our new club, a feeling of togetherness and being part of something whilst helping us provide a stronger identity that is now recognized island wide.
We are delighted with how the club has progressed, and there are more developments to come in the future including our new Under 11s Squad that will compete for the first time ever in the Jersey Football Combinations development program in the 2017/18 season.
I would like to thank you all our parents and spectators who have supported us throughout our journey so far, and of course all the children who have been involved in our coaching sessions.
I would also like to thank our coaches for the massive amount of work that they put in. Not only delivering age appropriate practice sessions, but for all the work that goes on behind the scenes that many people do not see or hear about.
Without all of you, quite simply, GS United would not have happened.
We hope you have all enjoyed being part of the ‘United’ experience and look forward to see you all again in September.
The futures bright, the future’s orange!
Yours in Sport,
GS United Football Club
