Further to our previous post that the first Community Kickabout of 2022 will be on 10th January, due to popular demand we’re returning early from the festive break with our first session taking place on Monday 3rd January 2022. We’re thankful for Hemel FC being flexible and allowing us to play on a Bank Holiday. Participants who already booked for the 10th can keep that booking or switch the payment to the 3rd, we’ll be in touch to clarify your preferences.

For our last session of 2021, our participants raised £230 for Hertfordshire Mind Network, which we rounded up to £250. Our two games (one 5-a-side and one 6-a-side) were well contested, a great effort all round ahead of taking a break for a few weeks over the festive period. As usual, thank you to the players who helped us keep it competitive when we needed to swap a few players around to even things up.

Thank you all for participating and supporting this initiative throughout 2021, we’ve had a fantastic response every week since we relaunched in March after lockdown restrictions preventing our games going ahead. Hopefully we’ll continue to grow in 2022. Stay safe over Christmas and New Year, enjoy the festivities and hopefully see you all in January. 

Please note, our sessions have now moved to the pitches in the “cage” at the top of the Vauxhall Road car park. This is the same 5G surface as the main pitch (both pitches were laid at the same time), but are slightly smaller than we’ve more recently used – the move allows us to use two pitches, growing the sessions and accommodating more players (2 x 6-a-side games). Depending on demand and availablity, a return to the (bigger) main pitch will be considered on a week to week basis depending on interest and availability.
