Summer Camp Thank You

Camp Group IMG_0013

What a great week! 5 days, 150 kids, 10 coaches, 1 astro-turf pitch, 2 grass pitches, 100’s of goals, 1,000’s of smiles and countless hours of fun. Even the weather played its part. All good things must come to an end and so it was last Friday afternoon when all of the children received their certificates for their participation in the Newport Town AFC FAI Summer Soccer School. We hope that every boy & girl who took part had a great time and made lots of new friends.

The camp doesn’t just happen by accident and there are lots of people to thank. Firstly, the coaches who made the camp such a special & fun place from the very first minute to the last. Thanks guys & girls, you were all simply amazing.

Our campers, the boys & girls who were so well behaved, enthusiastic and good humoured all week long. Ye were absolutely brilliant and there is definitely some future super stars amongst you.

The parents who were patient and co-operative all week at drop-off and collection times. We know that the car park was ‘fun’ at times, so thank you.

The car park stewards who ensured that everything ran smoothly and were always smiling and helpful.

The club Chairman & committee who welcomed the coaches, children and parents to NTAFC with open arms and did their very best to ensure that everyone enjoyed themselves.

The ground staff who made sure that the pitches were prepared ahead of the camp and kept in pristine condition all week long.

We hope we didn’t forget anyone, if so, sorry.
