Hello DB Angels and Parents!
Welcome back from the Year-end Holidays. Hope you enjoyed a wonderful time with family and friends and are now ready to play FOOTBALL again!!!
Mid-Season Re-start and Next Tournament
Glad to see everyone back (and some new faces) at our first practice of 2017, last Sunday, January 8th. We are all shaking off the rust from several weeks away and are preparing for our next tournament on March 12. Please save the date. Will send out details as we get closer to the day.
NEW PARTIAL SEASON OFFER: Discounted Registration Rates
We are now offering any new players or past players who may would like to return to the DB Angels, to join us mid-season at a discounted half year registration fee of $600 HKD (half price) for the remainder of the season, plus Kit costs. This amounts to $1,200 for new players including full Kit and new Team ball, or $770 HKD for returning players who have most of their prior Kit but need a new Team Shirt, for example.
Please pass the word and tell your friends about this special offer. New or past returning players can register through the website www.dbangelsfc.hk (and its links to TeamSnap).
The 2016-2017 season has been somewhat of a “re-building” year, but with positive signs of good things to come. It has been wonderful to see a great influx of new team members (including some returning from past years), several new coaches and organizing committee members. The enthusiasm and skill of the new players and coaches is wonderful to see and certainly something to build upon.
The DB Angels teams have competed in two tournaments thus far this season.
The U12s came within one goal of making it into the final rounds of their first tournament and showed great team work and determination in doing so. Just before Christmas they repeated the same kind of gritty and exciting performance in a “Friendly” match against the DBIS U12 girls team…which included several skilled DB Angel-alumni players. The match was a see-saw battle with the Angels scoring first and only much later DBIS scored the clinching goal at near full time. But, it could easily have gone the other way. We all should be very proud of our U12 girls for their inspiring play.
Our U8s were able to win a “Plate” medal in their first tournament, while our U10s, have given great effort in all their tournament games. Throughout their matches, all the girls should be complemented for their wonderful effort, team spirit and sportsmanship thus far this season.
A clear early season highlight for the Club was the relentless and joyous cheering of the U8 team on the sidelines in support of their U10 team-mates at their first match against HKFC. Their deafening refrain featured, ”Go U10s…Angels on Fire!!!. No one of the other Clubs had support like that on their side. Well done and thank you U8 Angels for your spirit.
Age Groups and Practice Times:
Please note that for the second half of the season we have modified our practice times as follows:
