In a global pandemic, we have not had many opportunities to be cheerful. The first challenge for this football club was to be able to welcome our dockers family back at Chadfields in a safe environment. I am not only proud of the way the club processed new COVID guidelines, but also very proud of our supporting family for adhering to the rules. Dockers as one will forever be stronger together and what a great start for us being back together again. We will do everything in our power to keep you close to us and keep you safe. We are so happy to see you all again.
Seeing you all back was not the only return we were delighted with. After a long summer, we have managed to negotiate and keep our players together. We have not seen a turnover of players and with this we are still processing with players that are doing their first pre season with the club. We were very proud to improve the squad as the season went on and we want to match your ambition by keeping them here. We are looking to add 1 other to the current squad over the next 7 days. We do know what we require but that player has to match the credentials we require at this football club and we hope you appreciate we want players to be here for the right reasons.
Not everyone has returned and with the injuries and couple of new additions, we are very sad to lose both Harry Aldridge and club captain, John Easterford. Both are true gentlemen and we wish both all the best in the future.
The future is bright for this football club and we believe our management team can still offer value to this football club. We are delighted with the ambition of everyone associated to Tilbury Football Club and we are immensely proud to be here and will continue to give our all. We cannot be successful without you and we are very determined to make you proud of us.
Being proud is a fantastic feeling and we found a young player in our 18’s that makes us very proud. Johhny Coyte has had an opportunity this pre season and we are backing Johnny and our Under 18’s for a very bright future at Chadfields. Johnny has his first senior goal and I can see how much it means to him to play for us which helps drive the process. We now want to see Johnny set high standards and we believe he has the ability and characteristics to do so.
There will be a New Captain announcement over the next few days and we will also be looking to bring another signing into the club.
The energy you all bring to this football club is priceless and we cannot wait to go into the new season with you all.
We all look forward to seeing you all tomorrow night as we host East Thurrock, in what will be, a fantastic test.
Today marks an exciting milestone for grassroots football as the Premier League, The FA and Government's Football Foundation has announced the completion of the Local Football Facility Plans. The Plans outline what facilities every local authority area across England needs to meet the demand of football in their area.
For the first time, this country has a roadmap to invest and build what every community needs. And the benefits of the facilities set out in the Plans go far beyond the pitch. They transform communities and change lives for the better. It’ll mean more people can play our national game, physical and mental health can be improved, communities can grow stronger and young people become more empowered.
But the Plans are just the first step. We need to work with local authorities, partners and communities to turn these plans into reality. Everyone has their part to play.
Find out how you can play yours by heading to the Football Foundation website and searching for your Local Plan.
The Chairman, Management, Committee and players Would like to say a massive thanks to all our supporters for your unrivaled support already at the start of this campaign.
The singing, cheering and encouragement from you all for the team really does make a difference. Sometimes we could do with that 12th man on the pitch and you all certainly provide that.
Lets hope for many more highs like we had at Aveley last night and continue the great start we have had.
