Chairmans pre-season message 2014-15

Welcome to the 2014/15 season which marks a first for us as a club breaking the 20 team barrier for the first time in our history. This season we're proud to have 21 youth teams, representing most age groups from U7s to U18s, our Sunday men's team and our ever popular Soccer School.

I would particularly like to welcome our three new U7s, U9 Colts & U18 Saints teams and managers, our new U8 Saints, U9 Saints, U14 Colts and U16 Saints team managers as well as all players of all ages who are joining the club for their first season. I hope that your time with the club is a long and happy experience.
The club regularly gets the chance to thank people for their hard work and support, often given over many years of dedication to youth football with us, but it is not often that we get to welcome back someone after a few years away. I had the great pleasure of working with Kevin Arnett when I started with the club 16 years ago and I'm very pleased that Kevin has offered his services again as one of our U7's managers.

Unfortunately we did lose our U10's team from last year and we therefore have no team at U11's this season. It is not unusual for a club to have one or two age group gaps and hopefully we will be in a position to offer football for U12's next season.
Our club sponsor, SC Johnson Ltd, continue to work with us and I would like to thank them again for their ongoing support.
I would like to thank all of the team managers and committee members for their hard work pre-season. Without their continued support with preparation we would not make the start of the new campaign each year.

Finally, I wish every player, manager, club volunteer and supporter a successful season and hope that you enjoy your football. Please do remember that as a club we play to have fun and we should show respect to everyone at all times whether playing at home or away.

Good luck to you all.

I am very pleased to say that the club has secured a new sponsor for the foreseeable future. SC Johnson Ltd have kindly donated to the club and have enabled us to replace the entire kit for the new season. Whilst we may not have all of the kit for the beginning of the campaign, the entire club will be playing in new sponsored kit within the next few weeks. We cannot underestimate what this new sponsorship means for the club to enable us to provide excellent facilities for so many young footballers.

I would like to thank all of the team managers and committee members for their hard work pre-season. Without their continued support with preparation we would not make the start of the new campaign.

RESPECT


The FA launched the Respect programme in 2008 in response to behavioural problems at all levels of the game. Since then they’ve campaigned on behalf of the beautiful game and have seen an improvement in on field behaviour, the retention of more referees, a fall in the number of assaults on referees and provided a better environment for children to learn and enjoy football.

Below you’ll find a link to the video on YouTube. Please feel free to embed it onto your club’s website and leave us a comment if you like it! It can also be posted on your Facebook timeline and you can tweet it out to your followers on Twitter.

The video is a bit different to the previous FA Respect promotions but really gets the message across.

Please help distribute this content, raise awareness and get people talking about the importance of Respect and you’ll be playing your part in something worthwhile and important for the game that we all love.

Chairman's pre-season message - 2nd September 2012

The new season for the Seniors team started last Saturday with a 5-2 victory - well done men, a good result from a team with a few new players still bedding in.

Our Junior & Youth teams start their campaigns this Saturday 8th September, with teams at home kicking off from 9am. This season sees us start 4 different playing styles: playing 5-a-side, 7-a-side, 9-a-side and 11-a-side across the age groups. It will be great to see the players develop in these new formats.

The managers have all been working hard to ready the teams, that doesn't just mean training sessions, but includes administration, both club and League, to ensure your children play structured football. To them I would like to say a big thankyou as we begin another new season; your kind donation of voluntary time keeps around 275 players regularly learning and playing football.

To every manager, coach, player, parent and supporter of Bracknell Cavaliers FC -please have a great 2012-13 season. As ever, play your best; play fair; respect the match officials and most importantly, enjoy yourselves.

See you during the season.

Barrie Smith
