Presentation Evening 2015

Hi all Parents & Players of Stonnall Juniors,
Our first annual player presentations evening was a fantastic occasion backed by equal support. As I said last night, this time last year there were two lads kicking a ball on a playing field, today that number is 34 players and that field is now the home of Stonnall Juniors FC. All of you have made this possible. On behalf of myself and SJFC committee, thankyou and here’s to many more social occasions.

Staffs FA evening — Linesman’s course

Many thanks to Staffs FA and to Mike Mooney for kindly delivering the recent Club Linesman’s course to coaches, parents and players from the Stonnall Juniors teams.

Staffs FA and Stonnall Juniors FC

Club Chairman, Neil Richards said, “Thankyou to Staffs FA for kindly giving Stonnall Juniors FC this opportunity to talk with an official away from the pressure (and abuse) they sometimes face at pitchside. It’s part of our club ethos to acknowledge who controls our game and for those around that person to have respect and understanding, bolstered through the FA’s Respect campaign. Thanks also to Walsall Phoenix for the use of their club house. It is a great when two local clubs can work together to put forward what is important: the best for all our players.

Xmas training stars

Congratulations to Rohan and Joseph who both have 100% training attendance over the Xmas period – a full seven training sessions since our last match on 7th December 2014. That’s ten hours of practice. Great effort!


Remember – the rebound net is free to borrow. I don’t want it sitting idle in my garage all week. The only condition is that if you borrow it, you please use it and practice! There’s a clip of the net here.

U9s – A prize for mistakes

Prize of a free football at Saturday training for the player who best explains what the caption ‘You will become clever through your mistakes’ means to them. This ties in with the thoughts in the Epoch Times article I contributed to about kids playing football in a positive environment. Stonnall Juniors FC get a mention in the article.


Remembrance Sunday 2014

Stonnall Juniors FC supported the poppies4kits Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal today. Players and coaches across both teams wore poppies today to show their respect on Remembrance Weekend.

The Poppies4Kits website says – “After seeing the Premier League stars raise thousands by having their shirts embroidered with the poppy emblem, we thought it would be a fantastic idea if all youth clubs could follow the lead of the Premier League clubs and have a poppy on their shirts. The problem we acknowledged is that to have embroidery onto a shirt is not only permanent, but an expensive option…

…we have developed a Self Adhesive woven patch, easily applied, wear for the match, then remove afterwards, even spectators can apply these to their garments and then remove after the event. These are designed as single use poppies.

The minute’s silence was impeccably observed – well done, boys.

Stonnall Stars U9s win first trophy

Pictured below is one of the Stars receiving their award from Walsall League Treasurer, Clyde Redfern. A great achievement, Stars, so well done! Very proud of you all.
