VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

WWFC has a host of exciting events & initiatives over the next few months. As with everything we do, nothing can happen without the tremendous time and support given by many volunteers. The more help we get, the lighter the individual load and the more we can provide to our community.

Right now we are looking for help with:-

 TOURNAMENT COMMITTEE

Like a well oiled machine, our Tournament Committee delivers two of the best tournaments around. We are looking for some volunteers from our younger teams to help out and learn the ropes. Great fun, and a vital part of WWFC now and in the future.

 DISABILITY FOOTBALL

A truly exciting and inspirational initiative, the Club would like to hear from any Level 1 coaches or above who would be able to offer an occasional hour on a Sunday morning as we look to establish the Club’s first weekly disability sessions.

 SAFEGUARDING OFFICERS

We are also looking for any team parents/helpers who would like to assist in a safeguarding capacity. It’s vital that the Club continues to provide safe and robust systems and procedures that allow everyone to enjoy their football.

 If you’d like to help out, the WWFC would like to hear from you. Email:- volunteer@ww-fc.co.uk

SAFEGUARDING A TOP PRIORITY

Woburn & Wavendon FC is all about delivering fun and excitement for all our members, and especially our young players.  The Club has a comprehensive system of checks, tools and procedures that help to ensure child safety is a priority.  We continuously look to update and improve these procedures so that safeguarding is maximised and risk minimised.

We would encourage all involved with our Club to read our Child Protection Policy:- http://ww-fc.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Child-Protection-Policy.pdf

This document has been in place for a number of seasons and its principles applied.

WWFC is blessed with two exceptionally good Child Welfare Officers.

For the Lionesses:- Clare Fisher | 07771 866949 | E-mail The Welfare Officer 

If you have any safeguarding concerns, they are here to help.

GREAT TIME FOR LIONS AT WEMBLEY

Following on from the great time the U13 Lionesses had on Friday when England entertained Germany, some of our U13 Lions had a go last night in the match against Brazil. Follow this link to see them competing in the half time entertainment:- https://1drv.ms/v/s!Ascn7fyYKsMbik5SXQ0TCrQzZr_M

No goals in the main match, but at least they found the back of the net ! Huge thanks to Vauxhall for their superb organisation and for making all this possible.

Poppies

The club this once again supported the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, through Poppies4Kits.

Thirty teams and an estimated 400 players wore adhesive poppies on their kits and showed their respect with a minutes silence prior to games. This year we raised over £450 for the charity.

LIONESSES AT WEMBLEY

Congratulations to all the Lionesses who took part in the half -time entertainment at Wembley for last week’s England v Germany match. Thanks also to all the parents, coaches and players who supported them in the crowd, and to Vauxhall for making it all possible. Certainly memories for life and a great experience.

ZACH HEATH

It is with very great sadness that the Club must report the passing of Zach Heath.  Zach has been working to launch the Club’s first disability team, and has been closely involved with the Club’s Vice Chair, Gary Towers, together with both the Under 14 Whirlwinds and Under 16 Hurricanes teams.  Those who had the privilege to meet Zach could not help but be inspired by his enthusiasm and energy to deliver such a worthwhile project.  The Club had already funded Zach’s FA Level 1 Coaching course, which Zach despite his disabilities, was able to successfully complete with assistance from The F.A. The new team was targeting January to launch. This will leave a huge gap for many involved with the Club, however we are determined to press ahead with the disability team and honour all the hard work, commitment and drive Zach has given to the project.

As a mark of respect, we would invite all WWFC teams to take part in a minute’s applause ahead of their games this Weekend. If you are happy to do this, please liaise with your opposition Manager ahead of kick off.  We will also fly the Club flag at half-mast at Wavendon Recreation Ground for one week.

Our sincere condolences go to Zach’s family. It has been a pleasure to have Zach as part of the WWFC family.

MESSAGE INSPIRES LIONESSES TO SEMIS ?

WWFC would like to congratulate the England Lionesses on reaching the semis of the Euros. Already their journey will have inspired so many youngsters. Maybe our own Lionesses can claim some credit for the victory over France, helped by their joint message with Gareth Southgate published in the Daily Star ?
