The Place We Call Home​

Two Years of hard work finally came to fruition with the opening of our new pitch on Sunday 21st August.
There were many announcements of gratitude on the day but none less than for our amazing group of parents who have suffered double away days since our inception in 2014.
Thankfully, those parents believed in our project and trusted the club that it would deliver on its promise to provide a pitch that would rank amongst the best in youth football.
The build up to the opening event was frantic, we had a band of volunteers who without their dedication and time, the opening would simply not have been possible.
The day itself went off without too many hitches, despite the awful weather.
We were incredibly lucky that the Ex England International Goalkeeper Nigel Martyn joined us on our big day and cut the ribbon for Us. Nigel gave his time for free and nothing was too much fuss for him. He posed for countless photographs and signed many autographs, making time for anyone who wanted to speak with him along the way.
Nigel has also represented St Blazey Cricket Club before turning professional and so the surroundings were refreshingly familiar.

We also owe a big thank you to David Bray of the Cornwall FA. David was up bright and early to attend the event and proudly presented our recently attained Charter Standard award. In addition to the recognition that comes with this award, David was quick to praise the Club and its volunteers on what had been achieved in such a short space of time. He was informed of the previous state of the land in question and was impressed with the transformation and the clubs outlook for the future.

This was one of our many events where fund raising was not our primary concern. This was a celebration of 2 years hard work and justification for all the time that had been invested by everyone connected with the Club. However, imagine our delight when our Treasurer concluded by saying that we had also raised just short of 500 pounds on the day.

We owe a massive thanks to all of our Mums who helped on BBQ, Sweet & Cake Stall, Selling Raffles etc and of course to our opposition on the day:
Liskeard U7, Tregorrick U8 & U9, Biscovey U10 and Both Bude & Charlestown U11.
Thanks for supporting our big day.

Finally, thanks to The St Austell Voice who covered the event and gave us a great article in their paper and to Mike Davey who took photographs on the day.

 Mike is kindly returning all monies received back to the Club.
