Voluntary Support at Home Matches

Cardinals in the Community (CITC) support of Mascots and Club Visits

For this season CITC requires volunteers to assist with providing tours to local clubs and looking after Mascots on matchdays. There will be a local club attending each Saturday match day but Mascots will not be every game.

Club visits will require a short tour of the changing rooms and boardroom, organising ball collectors and a guard of honour onto the pitch.

Mascots will also require a tour, some warm up time on the pitch with the players and then assistance in leading the team out with the Captain.

To find out more please email chris@cardinals.org.uk

Woking FC support as Supporters Return

With the return of supporters the Football Club is creating a “fanzone”. This will provide an area for supporters to enjoy a family atmosphere before watching the match. Within the zone, we will provide activities for the children, spot the ball, wordsearches etc as well as other physical challenges such as the number of touches on a ball in 1 minute.

There will also be a designated  area for a nominated charity  to provide information on services they provide in the local community; there will also be an opportunity to donate.

A volunteer is required to provide materials to children to complete activities and record scores of any challenges

We require volunteers to oversee this area and if  there are a number of individuals interested, this could be completed on a rota basis.

Information will be provided before completing the first session.

Again to find out more please email chris@cardinals.org.uk

Boost the Budget The 400 Club

Bank Account Glitch

Apologies – we have a glitch on our bank account which has caused some problems with Boost the Budget, 400 Club and other bank payments. You may get a note saying that your payment needs to be re-scheduled.

The Trust is working with the bank to fix this and so, for the moment, you should not need to reset up the payments as the bank has told us it will do this. However, we have been advised that it may take 10 days. Your patience and continued support is appreciated!

(Note that this does not affect payments made using the website system, only the direct standing orders)

Apologies, again for the inconvenience.

The Academy Awards

Scott Harrison said that it has been a successful season for the Academy, despite all the breaks in play due to the lock down. It was a difficult decision to choose the award winners as there were many players that have contributed to a great season; any one of the squad that were regulars in the FA Youth Cup played a major part.
The main highlights from this season were:.

  • The FA Youth Cup run saw us reach the 3RD Round for the first time in 25 Years – eventually losing at Brighton and Hove Albion.
  • In the 1st Round proper of that run we were away at Leyton Orient and came from 2 goals down to win the game 3-2; a performance to be really proud of
  • We were sitting 2nd in the National South U19s League until it was curtailed
  • A number of Academy Players gained 1st team opportunities and there were National League Debuts from Jack Skinner, Leo Hamblin, Sam Evans, Selim Saied & Jayden Wareham, who also scored 2 National League Goals at the age of 17.
  • Leo Hamblin played full 90-minute performances at the back end of the National League season
  • Jayden Wareham deservedly joined Chelsea after all the work put into him by the Academy staff over the last 2 years

The winners from the Academy were:

  • 1st Year Academy Player Of The Year – Jack Bingham
  • 2nd Year Academy Player Of The Year – Jake Rumble
  • Academy Player of the Year – Trevor Caborn

The Trust has already booked coaches for the first two away matches of the new season, starting with Wealdstone. Over the closed season, we have integrated an event booking system into the website, so we will shortly be opening that up to allow online booking and payment. That will reduce the amount of cash handling and assure you that a place is reserved. We’ll have more news shortly on this.
