Football News

Last Sunday we played Les Italiens and unfortunately lost 2-8! This Sunday we'll try to do better against Arnaud Pâquier's XI.

 

SAC’s soccer all-stars defy mud and drizzle in pre-Christmas festival of football last Sunday 12 December -

Sunday, at the SAC, it call came down to the referee’s final whistle and whether the Paquier Reds heard it before they scored a last-gasp equaliser against the Strouts Blues to snatch a 6-6 draw in the tournament final. 
Not that it mattered. A strong turnout of adults, teenagers and pre-teens set up a fabulous end-of-year, roughly 6-a-side tournament of four teams - a showcase of stunning goals, plenty of slipping and sliding, some gravity-defying goalkeeping, and good spirits all round. Commiserations to the Parkin Yellows and De Rosen Greens for missing out on the final. Where was the VAR when you needed it? (Read on for photo of the participants)
Wishing all at the SAC, footballers or not, a fit and prosperous festive season and New Year. See you in 2022 with your boots on! 
Laurent, Gerald and Matthew 

PS We're always on the lookout for new players: see this item and contact Laurent Brault at .

Cricket News - Saturday 19 June - Installation of the Andrew Macintyre Bell

On Saturday 19 June we made a presentation to Andrew Macintyre in recognition of his 14 years of service to SAC Junior Cricket. To commemorate that we have attached a bell to the pavilion and a commemorative plaque. Many of you will know that a bell is rung at Lords before the start of each and every session and we thought it a good way to record Andrews's efforts into the Club's history. See the main article for a photo of Andrew and the Bell.
