Here’s everything you need to know about Moretonville’s Presentation Day on Saturday June 18, 2022

For the first time, 2022 will see Moretonville’s Presentation Day combined with a family fun day based at the grounds.  Teams will be invited to join with their friends and families to finally be able to celebrate the season together after a break of two years.

The cub and its sporting partners will be providing entertainment and concession stalls such as:

  • Bouncy castles and Inflatables*
  • Sports4All*
  • Goalkeeper Warz – ‘beat the goalie’* and ‘speed goal’
  • Teddy and Bottle Tombola Stalls (in aid of Young Carers and Ukraine)
  • Face Painting and Tattoos* (9am – 1pm)
  • Tuck Shop
  • Bar
  • Pizza Van
  • Ice Cream Van
  • Burger Van
  • Coffee Van
  • Second-Hand Boots Stall
  • MJFC Club Shop

*no additional charges

PLEASE NOTE:  In the unlikely, but still possible, event that the day is a wash-out (weather-wise), this event will be cancelled and Plan B will take effect.  Any changes or cancellations due to weather conditions will be published nearer the time.

TEAM INVOLVEMENT

We are very proud that our club is wholly run with volunteers and this event is no different.  A group of volunteers have been working hard in the background organising the day.  On the day itself, each team will be allocated a ‘volunteer slot’ to help manage the tombola and second-hand boot stalls as well as the tuck shop. 

It will be up to each team to ensure that these slots are covered at the times allocated – a separate rota will be sent nearer the time but don’t worry, no one will miss attending their team’s presentation slot.

PRESENTATION FORMAT

Presentations will be held in a pod marquee.

The marquee will have two pods adjoined that can hold up to 200 people with a moderate stage and 150 chairs. 

Each AGE GROUP has been allocated a time slot to present their awards and end-of-season speeches with a short handover time between (see the bottom of this article for timings).

IT IS IMPERATIVE FOR THE SMOOTH RUNNING OF THE DAY THAT EACH TEAM ENSURES THEY MEET THE GIVEN TIME SLOT.

There will be no opportunity to move or add to the time slots if a team or player is not there on time.

AWARDS AND MEDALS     

MEDALS  An individual medal with MJFC logo and neck ribbon will be given to each player in U7-U11s (inclusive) only.

SPECIAL AWARD TROPHIES are available for all age groups (except U7s):

  • Player’s Player
  • Manager’s Player
  • Supporter’s Player
  • Most Improved

VOTING

Your team manager/team rep will manage the voting process

Player’s Player:  one vote per player.  Player cannot vote for themselves.

Supporter’s Player:  one vote per ‘family’. Supporters cannot vote for their own player.

Manager’s Player and Most Improved: selected by manager/coaching team.

PROGRAMMES – SPONSOR(S) REQUIRED

The presentation day committee felt it was important for each player to have a momento of the day in way of a programme.  The cost of producing a programme is relatively high and therefore in order for us to be able to do this, we will need to source sponsors to help cover the cost.  If you or your sponsor can help please contact Anita Wise (anitawise@hotmail.com) as soon as possible.

Walking

For those walking to the grounds, the pedestrian access gate at the main entrance will be open. 

PICNICS

Families are welcome to arrive and leave the grounds as they wish, irrelevant of presentation timings – if you want to stay all day, you can! 

There will be a large, designated family picnic area where we hope that you will take the opportunity to come together as a team.  You are welcome to set up gazebos and bring picnics but remember that we will have a wonderful array of food stalls and a fully stocked bar for your convenience. 

Please note that barbeques are NOT allowed as these areas are on working pitches which we must protect ready for the new season. 

A supply of black bags will be made available so that you and your team can ensure all rubbish is bagged up and put into the designated skip in the car park.

** SORRY BUT NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED ON THE GROUNDS **

FIRST AID

First aid is available via the managers and coaches who are first aid trained as part of their FA Level 1.  First aid boxes are available in the clubhouse along with the AED on the outside wall.

PAYMENTS – Bring Cash!
