Dragons Roar to Success in Opening Match of the Season

Well done to both Keele University Crusaders and Castle Dragons for an exciting start to the 2012/2013 season. Unfortunately this reporter was a couple of miles down the road in North Staffs at the time, but I’m reliably informed that the match was exciting, with excellent play from both teams – and really good to see some new faces amongst the familiar ones too! Final score 7-4 to Dragons in a home win at Gordon Banks.

Well Done on a Successful 2011/2012 Season

Well done to all the players, officials and hard work in general put in to make SaCKL 2011/2012 such a success! Our biggest league yet (3 clubs, 6 teams!) was a challenge to sort out logistically with players (and venues) proving adaptable to life’s little mishaps!

Keep your eyes peeled for the SaCKA Awards, this year to include:

  • Most goals scored (girl)
  • Most goals scored (boy)
  • Most Valued Player (overall)
  • Most Valued Team (overall)
  • One to Watch (overall)

Don’t Forget the Manchester Mini League in April/ May for those member of Castle or Crewe – see your club captains and committees for details on how to sign up.

Also! Coming Soon! The SaCKA Cup! Keep your eyes and ears open for a debut this summer of an informal league between the clubs in SaCKA to keep up the competition (and training) regime during the off season. More info to follow, but here’s a snippit:

  • Everyone is eligible to enter (as long as you’re over 14 years old)
  • Every team will play every team in a round robin format
  • Probably taking place on Monday evenings in the “local” area
  • Probably taking place outdoors on either grass or astroturf full size pitches (preparation for the summer tournaments!)
