The purpose of this message is really to guage interest in how many Old Blues would be keen on playing in a team hopefully starting next season.There are many Old Blues in London and surrounding areas, and we think there are many, like us, who want to keep playing football but find it difficult due to the problems involved in arranging a team and playing in a league. Following the establishment and continued success of the Old Blues Rugby Club of the Old Blues rugby team, we felt that a football team could be similarly succesful, and offer Old Blues a good route back into playing football, amongst friends and peers, as well as enjoying a few pints after the match...!
We're starting off by registering one team, as we dont want to take on commitments we cant fulfil, but we will look to register more teams if fhere is enough interest in the future. We havent committed to any league or playing timetable yet, as we felt that as well as seeing the level of interest, it would be useful to know what times people preferred to play, however in all probability we would look to play games on a Saturday afternoon, while training one evening midweek at a venue to be confirmed. We would really appreciate your input, so that we can draw up a schedule that suits everyone.
If you are interested in playing next season, please reply with your name, contact details, relation to CH, and preffered playing/training times to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org or private message us on here. We are required to submit a list of players/members to the London FA, and so would appreciate a swift response so that we can submit the forms ASAP.
There will be someone checking this account and the e-mail address given frequently, so replies should be prompt. Please feel free to forward this to any Old Blues who you feel might be interested. We would be really grateful for this, as we are trying to get as many people interested in this as possible, and it is hard to get hold of everybody who might be interested. Even if you arent interested in football, it would really help us if this message could be passed around to those who might be interested in playing.
Thanks for your time.
