S. Yorks.ACL bids Social Eyes Green and White Army a fond farewell.
Some sad news from www.southyorkshireabilitycountsleague.com as Rawmarsh St. Joseph’s Social Eyes FC have reluctantly decided to step away from the League with immediate effect.
Social Eyes entered the SYAL in the 2018/9 season under the umbrella of Parkgate Football Club and from season 2019/20 have been affiliated with Rawmarsh St. Josephs JFC.
In 2019/20 the club won the Division One title in only their second full season – a fantastic achievement. The club also lifted a Divisional Trophy.
Social Eyes have been a popular club in our League and are regularly followed by a vocal, supportive, and friendly bunch of carers and fans – the “Green Army.”
Social Eyes Claire Hobson told www.SYorksACL editor Margaret Gregory, “this was not an easy decision. We have had the best time being part of this amazing league, made friends for life and are all richer for being involved.”
“With this in mind can I please express our sincere thanks and gratitude to all who make it the fantastic League it is and has been for us.”
“A special thank you to Mike, Colin and Margaret,” Claire added, “who have always offered true professional support to Social Eyes.”
“Our footballers will still train every Friday and we are looking to organise friendly games during our day service hours or evenings.”
SYorksACL Chairman Mike Stylianou commented, “It is particularly sad that Social Eyes have had to withdraw from our league. Due to some logistical difficulties, they have reluctantly had to come to that decision which the League totally understands.”
“It has been a pleasure to have had them involved with us and the door will always be open should they choose to return.”
“They have won 2 trophies whilst in this League, but more importantly have gained many admirers – and friendly relationships have been created between us all.”
“I’m sure some of us will still maintain contact with them and hopefully there will be friendly matches for them against some of our teams.”
“We wish them all a healthy and successful future !”
