Thursday Night football
** Thursday 13th October: Football is ON this week, but we are trying the outdoors *tarmac* Futsal court at Brighton College, in east Brighton park. Usual times etc. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/Brighton+College+Jubilee+Playing+Fields,+UK,+Brightonfirstname.lastname@example.org,-0.0996605,14z/data=!4m5!1m2!2m1!1sbrighton+college+jubilee+sports+ground!3m1!1s0x487585db887a8cdf:0xe45e7ef435bc7fe1
We are now back indoors for autumn/winter at Brighton College. (MAP LINK) which is in the heart of Kemptown on Eastern Road between the Hospital and Gala Bingo. Look for the Hogwarts type building, and the gatehouse will give you directions from there. Parking is on-street (meters) and various buses stop at the bingo ("Freshfield Estate" stop).
There are two regular sessions every Thursday evening, back-to-back: 6-7pm PROS (most competitive) and 7-8pm VIRGINS (gentler). Both sessions are mixed by gender (LGBT+friends) and if unsure of ability come to a virgins session first. Cost is £3/session, or £5 for both.
This is an indoor sports hall with wood floor, so wear trainers or football shoes. There are NO changing facilities so please be prepared to change pitch-side. Try to arrive 15mins before, to get ready to start promptly. But it doesn't matter if you are late, you can just join in.
Joining a new group can be daunting, but most people who come love it and become a regular. We are friendly and welcoming, and please do contact me beforehand if you need any help joining in.
BLAGSS Men win Soho FvH Tournament
The BLAGSS men's team won the Soho FC winter 9-aside tournament on Saturday, held in aid of Football v Homophobia. In the group stage the boys lost, won and drew one game each; in the knockouts we won the quarter final 2-0 and won both the semi and final games on penalties each time! Much champagne was drunk to rounds of "champione, champione!" back at the hosts bar Rupert Street. This was our second ever piece of silverware, first as outright winners, and is a culmination of 5 years hard work getting football up and running.
