Football is back and so is Teppenyaki

Good afternoon Citizens,

A big thank you to ‘on the ball’ Ally for taking the first training session of the 12/13 season and in doing so, helping us start to regain our touch after the summer break. The session featured the good ol’ fundamentals: passing, movement and lots and lots of sweat!

Thanks to all those who attended and a warm welcome to the new faces.

Next week, same time, same place, the session will be run by Barrie.

In the mean time ….

To help usher in the pre-season, we’re organising a night at a favourite haunt of FCFC: Tairyo Teppenyaki this Saturday at 8:00pm. You read correctly, a Tairyo Teppenyaki night! For those who have yet to join FCFC at Tairyo, the night will basically involve scrumptious bbq meats, sashimi, sake and Sanlitun.

Location : (2/F Yaxing Mansion, Maizidian Jie Liangma Qiao / Lufthansa Center Area 亮马桥燕莎桥 – 朝阳区麦子店街亚星大厦2层 – 6461 2336 – off Liangmaqiao Lu – map and link below)

If you are interested in coming along, please email Ben so he can get an idea of numbers and book the table.

Hope to see you there!

FCFC Xmas Party – Saturday, 3 December

Citizens!

The date for the FCFC Christmas party is finally confirmed:

When: Saturday, 3 December 2011 from 8pm
Where: Luga’s Villa in Sanlitun

There were quite a few people who said that 10th or 16th wasn’t ideal, so we decided to choose an earlier date. There is no league game that weekend so everyone can go all in (though Palace still has a match on 11th).

We still have to confirm details with Luga’s, but expect beers, jugs of rum/coke and gin/tonic, buffet, Christmas carols from the manager-captain choir, boat races, etc. Not sure about puking on the pants since local hero Jimbo McKay is back in UK, but there’ll be contestants…

Put in in your calendar and be there.
Ho ho ho.

Santa Claus is coming to town soon to celebrate FCFC awesomeness (again).

Save the date! More information will follow in the coming weeks.
We look forward to seeing you and your beloved ones.

Season Opening Party at Luga’s

FCFC got off to a good start to the footballing season this weekend with Palace beating Chaoyang Park Rangers 6 – 0 and City winning a hard fought battle against the French 1 – 0.

But as everyone at FC knows, the real season does not start until Luga has given us a free bottle of Tequila, Andy has been sick all over a toilet and Gabrielle has taken the chastity of a local schoolgirl.

So come down to Luga’s this Friday night for the Season Opening Party, starting at 8PM, for an evening of all you can eat and drink entertainment for 150RMB!

Please reply now to this email NOW so we can get an idea of numbers. Cheers

End of Season Party at Luga’s

City Boys!Yuletide is here again, and what that means for FCFC is that afternoons frolicking in the park and post match analysis in Luga’s is coming to an end for yet another year.2010 has been a good year for FCFC as both City and Palace teams have gone from strength to strength in both 5s and 11-a-side with our new recruits and commitment from seasoned players pushing the teams onwards and upwards both on and off the field.So before we all head off for Christmas, come down to Luga’s from 8:00PM on December the 10th for a Christmas dinner and drinks to be enjoyed with your friends and family.Everybody is welcome for what intends to be a somewhat more civilised affair than last weekends Wudaokou excursion.Please reply now as to your availability and if you will be bringing guest to get an idea of numbersHope to see you all there!Blythe
