From the chairman

Thurlby Tigers FC Badge

Introducing (our new) Chairperson: Chris Seggie

Welcome to our first TTFC Newsletter.

I am delighted to have been appointed as the new Chairman of Thurlby Tigers Football Club. I have been involved with the club since 2013 and I am passionate about seeing it continue to succeed.

I know that I have big shoes to fill, as my predecessor, Derek Bell, did a fantastic job in steering the club in recent years. However, I am confident that I have the skills and experience to continue the club’s upward trajectory.

I have been involved with the club for many years, both as a committee member, coach and fan/parent. 2023 and I’m back coaching with the newly formed U17s team. I know the club inside out and I am committed to doing everything in my power to ensure that it continues to be a success.

One of my main priorities will be to continue to develop the club’s junior and youth teams. We have a lot of talented young players at the club and I want to give them the best possible opportunity to reach their full potential.

I also want to build on the strong relationship that the club has with the local community. We are a community club and we are committed to supporting the local area.

I am excited about the future of Thurlby Tigers Football Club and I am confident that we can achieve even more success in the years to come.

Thank you to everyone for their support. Together, we can make Thurlby Tigers a club that the whole community can be proud of.

Coaching ethos

Remember
who we are

Thurlby Tigers are extremely proud of our ethos and culture; Safe, Positive and Fun for all ages.

We respect our roots as a community and village Club and promote the development of all players, irrespective of their ability.

The club advocates the RESPECT campaign and with regard to equality and inclusion it is an absolute commitment of the club that no child is ever excluded from playing football for reasons of gender, race, nationality, ethnic origin, colour, religion, sexual orientation or perceived ability as a footballer.

Respect –
always

As a parent we ask that you are part of the TTFC positive and respectful culture at all times. This includes adhering to the Code of Conduct agreed by all of the TTFC Community at the start of the season. Take a look at all of the Codes of Conduct and policies using the buttons below.

We only do positive, family friendly football, respect for all.

A quick reminder…

Thurlby Tigers now have an agreement with the Methodist Church on the High Street to use their Car Park on Saturday mornings. If you are attending a match or session today and are familiar with the area, please consider parking here to reduce congestion at Lawrance Park.

PHOTOGRAPHY & VIDEO

Thurlby Tigers FC Badge

“Am I allowed to take photos or videos during a match or training?”

Simply put, yes, but only with express permission from the coaches of both teams.

It is a misconception that simply saying ‘I won’t share it on social media’ is ok, but as a Club we respect the wishes of all parents & carers and therefore if taking any images or videos; then permission should be granted by representatives of both Clubs.

“What should I do if I see someone taking photos or videos from another Club?”

Avoid confrontation if appropriate and raise the matter to the TTFC Coach(es). Hopefully a prior request has been submitted and agreed, if not, the Coaches have the authority of the Club, and indeed the FA to request immediate cessation of the recording / photography if a child within that team has been identified to them previously as not to be photographed / recorded. Any incidents should then be reported to [email protected]

We know You will have the best intentions at heart, but there’s an important message to consider.

Thurlby Tigers Football Club is committed to ensuring that children are safe at all times. We take measures to ensure that we not only respect the wishes of some parents / carers to not have images taken of their children on personal devices, but we also protect children whose identity and / or name is not to be shared or published for additional protection.

TTFC share details of any specific request from parents / carers at the start of the season with coaches to ensure we can safeguard individuals appropriately.
