Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!
By Andy Lawrence
SONICS finished off 2015 as we started: “At Golden Hill Sonics Football Club we believe that we have a unique set up, as some Clubs may measure their success in terms of the number of cups and trophies they win but we consider our success to be measured by the pleasure and opportunity given to local youngsters and them having the chance to participate in regular organised football activities at an affordable cost.
This isn’t to say we don’t strive to achieve honours each season, but we don’t want to sacrifice participation in the search for glory.” (Phil Abraham, Club Chairman).
Our younger year groups (under 7s-under 10s) enjoyed the run up to Christmas with training sessions and matches with the emphasis very much on fun. Our under 11s also enjoyed their matches – the children certainly didn’t need to check the newspapers/online to find out results...
Sonics under 12s continued to make their parents proud with some fantastic performances in December (the boys took part in very entertaining games against Lawrence Weston and Henbury) and our under 13s finished 2015 at the top of the Mid Glos League after a string of welldeserved results.
The under 15s continued to improve every week with enjoyable matches against Brislington and Ashton Boys while our under 16s had their own mid-season break due to cancelled fixtures. Our under 18s didn’t have any League fixtures in December but can be proud of their season so far (3rd place in the Bristol and Glos Premier Division).
It goes without saying that all the kids enjoyed Christmas and are looking forward to their football in 2016!
