Fun in the sun for Emersons Green JFC

EMERSONS Green Junior FC held a community fun day and presentation to celebrate the highlights and heroes of its season.

The club, which celebrates its tenth anniversary this year, has 16 teams – eight for boys and eight for girls – ranging from under-sixes to under-16s.

Hundreds of people attended the event on Walkers Field, Blackhorse Lane, for players, coaches and their families on May 11.

Club co-chairman Stuart Russ said: “It was a fantastic day – the sun was shining, there was a great community spirit and celebration of a club’s football season coming to its conclusion.

“The outstanding achievement award went to Tracy Bending, the club secretary.

“This year we will be looking to put an adult female team in the league for the first time in the club’s history, so we’re looking forward to next season.”
