Welcome to my July 2017 end of season Casuals newsletter. I am Mark Heelis, the manager of the Oxford City Casuals.

We are an award winning team!

Oxford City Casuals won Best Programme for people with disabilities at the National League end of season ceremony on Saturday 10 June.

This award recognises the hard work everyone involved with the Casuals puts in to making our team fun, safe and friendly.

Thank you to the players, parents and volunteers who have all contributed to our success. Well done everyone!

Big Day Out

On Sunday 14 May players (pictured below), parents and support workers and volunteers joined our Big Day Out at Wembley.

Dates for your diaries

Sunday 23rd July, last training session of 16/17
Sunday 3rd September, first training of 17/18

Shortlist success for volunteer

Congratulations to Bea Curtis (pictured below with some of the u12 players) who was shortlisted for Oxfordshire FA Young volunteer of the Year.

As a direct result of Bea's hard work, passion and energy we now have a growing number of under twelve u12 players registered.

Bea was shortlisted alongside three other young volunteers out of a long list of 25. Bea she enjoyed the award ceremony on Friday 30 June despite not scooping the award.

Player registration fees 17/18

We pride ourselves on being an affordable inclusive football team. Changes at the club in the past year have also impacted on the cost to deliver the Casuals training and events. As a result we have made some changes to our player registration costs for the 2017/18 season.

We have attempted to keep the payer registration fees as low as possible. Registration fees help us provide training sessions on over 30 Sunday’s through the season, as well as support at 6 BOBi league tournaments, social trips, Christmas and end of season parties.

We recognise that we have reduced their training sessions time for u12’s from 90 minutes to 60 minutes. As a result we are keeping prices for them at £35. For over 12’s the player registration fee will be £40.

Volunteer update

Thanks to our volunteers Mark, Lee, Ibby, Sarah and Peter (pictured below with Rodney and Alison) who represented Oxford City Casuals at the annual Disability Have-a-go day on Tuesday 20 June at Horspath Athletics track.

On a hot summers day they helped run football sessions to encourage children and adults with disabilities to join the Casuals.
