The Football Team based at our club, Achilles F.C., have had another fantastic season, finishing as Senior League Champions after their 4-2 win against old rivals Cranes on Saturday 28th April, which extended their lead to 15 points.
A minutes silence took place before the match as a touching tribute to Cyril Garnham, Achilles’ senior vice president, who sadly passed away a few days ago just short of his 91st birthday.
This season, Achilles have already won the League Title and were only knocked out of the Suffolk Senior Cup at the semi-final stage by a very strong Woodbridge team.
They have been the most successful team in the Suffolk and Ipswich League for several seasons, winning the Suffolk Senior Cup last season, beating Cranes F.C. at Portman Road in the final, whilst finishing runners-up in the Senior Division.
We couldn’t be more proud of our team – a huge well done to the champions!
The Children’s Easter Party at the club was a great success. All the tickets were sold and the Function Room was full of happy families enjoying the disco music provided by D.J. Hamster, with disco dancing competitions and prizes for the best dancers, both young and not so young.
There was plenty of food and drink for the children, provided by our organiser and caterer Tina, as well as many raffle prizes and Easter eggs. Also, the children all loved to see, and make a fuss of, the two 5-day-old lambs brought to the club by the very kind “Lamb Lady” – a lovely extra treat!
Many thanks to those who organised this event, and who helped on the day, and to all the families that attended, to make it such a wonderful family Easter party.
