WWFC are delighted to announce that Brandon Goldsmith has been successful in his application to become a member of the Beds FA Youth Council for 2018/19.
Commenting on Brandon’s appointment, Marc Di Carlo, Beds FA Football Development Officer, congratulated him and also informed us that this season has seen the largest and best ever quality of applications -therefore a testament to the quality of Brandon’s application.
“Over the last 3 years Brandon has become a great member of the U15 Cyclones as a person – not just a player. He certainly is a great character to have in the Team and I’m sure his teammates are very pleased for him, but most importantly I’m sure he will represent himself his family and also Woburn & Wavendon FC with great professionalism in his role on the Youth Council” commented a very proud Jame Malins, U15 Cyclones Manager.
After 11 years developing as a team from Under 7 all the way up to Under 17, Ian Williams’ Whirlwinds will be playing their last competitive match on Sunday. Not just any match though, this is the League Cup Final at Shefford !
An amazing 6 members of the current squad have been with the team since Under 7, and of course Ian has been guiding and encouraging them all the way. Well done to you all, and to the parents and volunteers who have helped make it all possible. An inspiration to us all.
Very emotional when a team finally looks to hang up the boots, but we’re all backing you to deliver one more win. If you fancy cheering them on, KO is 11am at Shefford.
From the Club’s point of view, we are delighted that Ian will be continuing his great work on the WWFC Committee, particularly organising the Foundation/Reception Sunday sessions that will be delivering the Lions and Lionesses teams of the future.
It is with deep regret and sadness that we inform you that Paul King, U9 Hurricanes Manager and Coach for the last couple of years, passed away last Weekend. We hope to speak to his wife when she is ready and will discuss with her how, as a Club, we can support her, the Family and the Team at this very difficult time. We are sure you will share with us your deepest sympathy for his family and ask you, on their behalf, to respect their privacy for the time being.
The Committee – WWFC
We have now been given the following information from Paul’s family:-
“Pauls’ funeral will be on Monday 30th April at 10.45 in the Oak Chapel of Crownhill Crematorium, followed by a celebration of his life (nibbles and a piss up) in the Hilton Hotel, Kent’s Hill.
Everyone welcome, but no morbid colours please… footie shirts and colourful clothes a must!!
Lastly no flowers please (we’ve got more than interflora at the mo), instead he’d appreciate a donation to help for heroes which can be done at the end of the service if you’d like to, or consider signing yourselves up to be an organ donor x”
ONE MINUTES’ APPLAUSE FOR PAUL
“Woburn & Wavendon FC has been deeply saddened by the sudden passing away of one of our team managers. Paul King coached and managed our Under 9 Hurricanes Team, and had been responsible for launching and developing the football journeys of many young players. In recognition of his energy and enthusiasm for his team, the Club and local grassroots football, we hope that you will join with us in 1 minutes’ applause ahead of all matches on 21st and 22nd April. Our thoughts and prayers are with Paul’s family at such a distressing time”.
