And so after a small beginning we had started and all was taking shape, the new faces kept coming and we had enough to enter a team into the BOBi league we had links with Oxford United Community officer John Armstrong who took over the coaching.
We then began to formulate a plan to host a summer tournament and invitations were sent, so down on Iffley road sports pitch STREETS REVOLUTION sent out invitations and awaited responses.
Meanwhile the first successful application for funding was made from Oxfordshire Community Fund and many thanks to Graham Ablett for all his help and support to achieve this.
We also started our Youth Action Team which hopes to give 16-25 year olds an opportunity to get involved in the decision making of our organisation and help learn new skills and have a say in what we do and raise needed funds, they were integral in designing our logo and badge and got funding for our new kit.
Basking in the sunshine numbers rose to 20 on some days, and a great bond was growing amongst the participants we had entered into Cherwells Men’s Health Week tournament in Banbury and come 2nd on goal difference (not bad for our first turn out).
Now all i had to do was get prepared for the “Road to Rio” walk and the Homeless World Cup.
The Blog has been a bit behind and for that i apologise and will make every effort to catch up and see if i can make it a regular thing in 2011.
Cheers for now
Jon Regler (Chairman)
