OCTOBER WINNER:  Harvey Pembroke

OCTOBER NOMINATIONS: 

I’d like to nominate Lola Romani for the October JP award. 

Last season Lola became the first girl ever to play in the senior’s division.

Lola has equipped herself to the Trojans and holds her own in a very physical division. She is the first to turn up every Saturday and is a joy to manage. She plays with a smile on her face and is an integral part of the Trojans. I would have nominated her last season but with the Covid break was unable to.

I can’t think of a more worthy nomination.

I'd like to nominate Lola (Trojans).

Not only was she the first girl to play in the inters division but she has also gone on to be the first girl to play in the seniors as well ... more than holding her own in both divisions.

She is a wonderful young person and is very dedicated to SLL.  She is a true trail blazer for girls within SLL

I’d like to nominate Harvey Pembroke in The Lions. This young man has had some serious issues to deal with at home and yet he turns up each week with a smile on his face and tries his best.

 

Thanks.

I would like to nominate Harvey Pembroke for consideration for this award.

 

Football to so many is more than just a game. It is a passion, a dream, fitness and it is also fellowship and friendship and to some an escape.

On selection we all picked many different players hoping they would all bring their skills to the team Harvey has done just that. Harvey's mother brought it to my attention that his father has a very serious health condition. Harvey's parents as well as Harvey wants him to play, and they and I would like to thank the league for their support.  

 

Harvey himself: 

Training never late [he has missed a few] but when training his gets stuck into all parts of the training as well as helping other with tactics, skills and formations.

Harvey's understanding of the importance of this has helped us as a team get more out of each training session his focus to help other is a credit to himself.

 

On the pitch:

Before the game when we place the players in position, our captain, myself and Harvey discuss and make decisions.  We all know at times we have to make sudden changes which he also has the ability to do.

Harvey is willing to and does play any positions other would prefer to play the main positions no other i.e., defence because he understands it's not just one player but a whole team effort that is important and also understands its more than just scoring goals that can win a game. 

When playing he always encouraging the rest of the team seeking no glory for himself

 

In closing the reasons why Harvey Pembroke should be considered for this nomination are his passion and commitment to football with his and his family’s challenges are to me humbling many may have given up. His readiness to help others with training shows his maturity in understanding we all need help, and his ability to be positive and show positivity is not only credit to himself but to his parents as well.

I would like to nominate Gabriel del Campos from the Hawks.

 

Gabriel has shown a great desire to improve his football skills this season, having joined us last year during lockdown.

Finally, being able to train, Gabriel applies himself with commitment to every task and we are delighted to see his confidence, and his impact on the pitch, grow accordingly. Gabriel’s attitude and dedication are to be greatly commended.

 

Thanks.

I would like to put forward Sam Wasbrough for a Jack Petchey nomination.

 

The reason for his nomination is the fact that he stepped up to be the goalkeeper for the season for the good of the team and disregarded his own personal feelings about where he would want to play. We started the season using a number of different players in goal and he was very hesitant to play there. But after a few games he came to me on his own accord and said that he had been thinking recently that for the good of the team he would set up and be the number 1 choice of goalkeeper all season. It shows fantastic teamwork and a level of maturity that I feel he fully deserves this nomination.

 

Kind regards.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to nominate Lucas Thomson. Lucas has been with the Wanderers for 2 seasons now and has a fantastic attitude on and off the pitch. Lucas kindly volunteered to go in goal this year and even though this is the first time he’s played full time in goal he has never complained always been super cheerful and continually motivates the team. He’s a great example of what a committed friendly team player should be about! 

 

Many thanks.

I would like to put forward my nomination for the Jack Petchey award as Ka'varn Davis from Dynamos in the Inters league.

 

Ka'varn has never previously played football for a team before until this summer's trials. Since selecting him and having him join up with the team, Ka'varn has been an absolute pleasure and dream to coach and manage. He has taken into consideration his abilities and where he would like to get to and fully engaged himself in every session and match, we have had. He is always the first to arrive and the last to leave with an eagerness to work longer and harder and do more than anyone else.

He is always offering to help set up and take down equipment and enter into demonstrations. He has set himself personal objectives, and I have no doubt he will achieve them as the season goes on. He is an ever present. He is extremely polite and helpful. He is a credit to himself, and his family and he is an extremely popular and valuable member of the Dynamos squad.

 

Many thanks.

 

Michael Corbett

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’d like to nominate MJ for the award. 

 

I have many reasons beginning with the fact it’s his last season and he has been there from the very 1st year the rascals were set up and has hardly missed a match! 

He’s always been a great team player has always helped set up and pack away on many an occasion. He now helps to coach and train his brothers team and has also run the line many times in different leagues.

His commitment is amazing he loves his football.  And all this with his disabilities that on occasion have had us in tears together when he has nearly given up because he can’t do it all!

So, a worthy winner and an asset to Sutton Little League.

 

Thank you.

My nomination this month is Adam Norbrrega.

 

He always turns up 30 mins early to warm up doesn't complain and is well respected by his fellow teammates. His confidence has risen from last year and he has never missed a training session even when we are losing in a game, he still puts 100% in effort on the pitch and is always polite.  

I think he should be this month’s nomination 

 

Thanks.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to nominate Max Mulgrew of the Peregrines for the Jack Petchey award.

 

Max was part of a team that struggled last season and was one of only three players who stayed on despite this. Max has turned up to all the organised training sessions throughout the summer and always tried hard. Max has a fantastic attitude towards football and is a great individual as well as a team player. During the 3rd game of the season Max was involved in a tackle that resulted in a fractured foot, this however did not stop Max attending Saturday mornings supporting the team. This shows his true team spirit and is an example to the rest of the team. Having Max on my team is fantastic and I feel for his support for the team on and off the pitch he deserves recognition.

 

Anthony Lawlee

Peregrines

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’d like to nominate Denny Shute for the October award.

 

I’ve known Denny since I managed him when he was in the Peregrines many seasons ago. He has always given 100% effort whether at training or on match days and always listened what was said to him. He was put in goal for one game this season which isn’t where he normally plays but he gave it his all nonetheless. A credit to whichever team or position he plays in.

My nomination this month is for  MJ.

This month I would like to nominate a player who had shown  true dedication  to the game of football. This player started in bantams and is now in the seniors and still playing strong in every game. In his time with the league he has also stuck it and seen many other players and managers leave.

All players have their own abilities MJ's own abilities are determination dedication and resilience with Never Give Up Attitude 

(if more players could adopt his attitude). He gets stuck in the every game with a positive mind.

Personally I have known his mother, MJ himself and his family from my time as a Salvation Army Youth Team Leader at Carshalton. MJ regularly attended and help others while he was there, his mother Vicki also helped us out.

MJ has shown and shows us he does not have a disability but has many different abilities - determination, dedication, commitment and shows sports are for all. For these reasons my nomination for  this months JP Award has to be MJ.

 

Thank You.

This month I would like to put forward Ruby May from Dynamos

 

Ruby has had a brilliant start to the season putting in strong performance after strong performance. She is always at training, always on time, always listening and is a hugely popular figure in the team and with the other teams and managers in the Inters league. I have tried Ruby in a variety of positions and not once has she moaned or asked me not to. she gets stuck in to every game and every tackle and you can very often hear all the parents on the side calling her name and applauding her contributions. she has not let being female in a strong male league phase her and she never pulls out of a challenge or going shoulder to shoulder with the biggest and strongest boys in the league which is an absolute credit to her and something i encourage at training and during matches. she was so close to scoring her first goal this weekend on her birthday with an absolute rocket of a shot that hit the post in the top corner.

All her efforts and application and BRILLIANT attitude has culminated in her being offered a place at Motspur Park training facility for Fulham Football Club. She really could be the next big thing with her attitude and support that she receives from her mum week in week out.

 

I cant think of a more deserving winner then Ruby this month and would crown an unbelievable month for her.

 

Well done Ruby.

I would like to nominate Frankie Dana from the Romans for the Jack Petchey Award. 

 

He has been at SLL for 8 years now and has missed possibly 2 games in all that time, 1 being due to having Covid.

Frankie always gives his all when playing and despite having no manager for part of last year and his managers leaving this year after a few games, he has carried on even though he has felt like giving up.  He has also helped us with training the younger children and setting up/taking down the pitches. The Romans have had a really rough start this season and have been thoroughly thrashed in some games due to lack of players turning up and 3 players leave. I'm hoping that having someone in the team nominated and hopefully win, we can then do something with the boys to get some proper team bonding happening and have happier boys who will enjoy coming and playing football again. After all that's what it's all about, keeping the boys happy. 

 

Many thanks.

I would like to nominate Harley Clarke of the Owls for the November award.

 

Harley has sadly been the victim of some verbal abuse recently but has put that behind him to put in 3 MOTM performances , saving a penalty and pulling off a string of fine saves was followed up by a brilliant performance at centre half where he was commanding and battled for every ball.
Harley epitomises all of what SLL is about and I'm immensely proud of him.

Kind regards.

He’s always been a great team player has always helped set up and pack away on many an occasion. He now helps to coach and train his brothers team and has also run the line many times in different leagues. Which I am sure he will be helping manage next season as he won’t be playing himself. His commitment is amazing to his team and himself he loves his football. And all this with his disabilities that on occasion have had us in tears together when he has nearly given up because he can’t do it all!

I’d like to nominate Anthony Garland for this month’s award.

Anthony has been at SLL for many years now and is in his final season with us. In all the teams he’s been in he always gives 100% effort and commitment. Whatever the result he’s always ready for the next game. It would be a fitting end to his time at SLL to pick up a JP award for all his hard work.

I would like to nominate Nelson Mata from Kestrels Junior division 

 

Nelson is kestrels goalkeeper who struggles with his confidence he always shows up on time. He never complains and has been at the short end of some big results. Having said that he has none stopped working hard and has really come out of  his shell keeping a clean sheet in the Kestrels first ever win this season and making some miraculous saves in a penalty shoot out sending us to the final.

He is well respected by his fellow team mates and I feel that he would this months worthy nominee.

I’d like to nominate Elvis Chan from dynamos this month.

 

Elvis has come to a new country and joined an established team and managed to fit in brilliantly well. He has filled in as goalkeeper and performed admirably well and also played well when playing on pitch.He is always training and working hard and always does as he is asked with a smile on his face. He is obviously quite quiet as a character, being new to the country and speaking English as a second language but he has not made that an issue with his effort and application. I’m very proud of his efforts and how he has settled in and how he has had to adapt. 

 

Well done Elvis and congratulations.

I would like to nominate Aaron Paulraj for the Jack Petchey award for December.

 

There is no player that embodies everything I have tried to accomplish with the Blues quite like Aaron.  

When he first joined the team he was very quiet and reserved for a few weeks, and lacking in confidence.  As last season progressed, however, he grew more and more confident and impressed with not only his level of play, but his attitude towards the game as well.  This culminated in him delivering back-to-back man of the match performances as the team reached the cup final, and him being awarded our ‘most improved’ award at our end of season awards.  

I gave Aaron the captain’s armband for this season and he has shone as a captain all season, but I believe now is the best time to nominate him for the award.  Recently, the team has been going through some inconsistent form and some players are struggling for confidence.  I always overhear Aaron talking about other players on our team in a very positive light and doing his best to re-inspire confidence in members of the team.  He never has a bad word to say about anyone, and is a well-respected and excellent role-model for our younger players.  I cannot think of a more suitable candidate for this award.

I’d like to nominate Harry Knipe for the January award.

The Romans have had a torrid time this season with a bad run of results but their goalkeeper Harry has battled on. He hasn’t given up when many might have done, instead he’s picked the ball out of his net and carried on with the game. A good example of grit and determination.

Thanks.

This month I would like to nominate Kayleb Lawlee in The Lions.

 

Kayleb is always happy to help across all of the divisions, he is there early every week and he a really delightful young man who, while being very competitive, is always fair and sporting. He is a leader in his team and always the first to shake hands at the end of a game, whatever the result.

 

Chris Ford

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My nomination is for Kayleb Lawlee. 

 

This month I would like to nominate a player from the lions team that many team managers know. This player like many others has progressed through the teams over the years in SLL and now as there are just few games of the year left, it will be a shame to see them move on and it has been a privilege that this player has been with us and with other teams over the years. Well Done and thank you. From the start of the game to the last whistle he plays full on. What position does he play that's easy any and all having a player that can play any position is a great relief and an attribute to his abilities, skills and dedication not only to the game but also for the sport and definitely for the team. Kayleb is the player if you could have for another year you would.

Kayleb Lawlee - commitment, mud and matches.

I would like to nominate Tommy Frost of the Peregrines for the Jack Petchey award for January.

 

Last year Tommy was a goalkeeper in the bantams but this year for the first time decided he wanted to play outfield.

I have been impressed with Tommy this season as he learns everything about playing outfield. He is willing to learn and has played in every position on the pitch. Tommy does this without any hesitation and puts 100% towards the role he has been assigned.

Tommy has always turned up to training and every game with a positive attitude. He is a great character to have within the team and gets on really well with all his peers.

Kids like Tommy Frost are the reasons we volunteer at Sutton Little League and recognition and encouragement really does give them an amazing boost.

I would like to nominate Frankie Dana from the Romans for the Jack Petchey Award.  

 

He has been at SLL for 8 years now and has missed possibly 2 games in all that time, 1 being due to having Covid. 

Frankie always gives his all when playing and despite having no manager for part of last year and his managers leaving this year after a few games, he has carried on even though he has felt like giving up. He has also helped us with training the younger children and setting up/taking down the pitches. 

The Romans have had a really rough start this season and have been thoroughly thrashed in some games due to lack of players and 4 players leave and new replacements. The boys haven't had a proper chance to bond as a team and therefore play as one. 

I'm hoping that having someone in the team nominated and win, we can then do something with the boys to get some proper team bonding happening and have happier boys who will enjoy coming and playing football again. After all that's what it's all about, keeping the boys happy   

 

Many thanks

I would like to nominate Pedro Del Campo of the Blues for this month's Jack Petchey award. 

 

Pedro joined us last season, and since then has grown to become a vital part of the team, both on and off the field. 

While he has played well in goal for us, he has been an important part of the team as a whole, helping motivate his fellow teammates and maintain a positive attitude through tough games. 

He has consistently been helping with training, and even expressed an interest in continuing to help even after moving up to the seniors and his commitments with teams outside the league, which is just another show of his attitude.

I would like to nominate Tom Thiselton from the Eagles.

 

As we all know stepping up to cover when the goalie is absent takes guts and a real team player. On numerous occasions Tom has volunteered when no one else in the team will go in goal. You may not know (as he never makes a deal out of it), but this is especially brave for Tom who suffers from Duanes syndrome, a rare condition that effects your sight. Tom is unable to move his eyes in an outward direction, meaning that unless something is directly in his central vision he sees double. Whats even more rare is Tom suffers with this in both eyes meaning his peripheral vision on both sides is double. Not only is he brave going in goal but it is also a much more daunting task for him. He won’t see the ball until the last minute, and providing he is looking directly at it, yet still he has managed to keep 2 clean sheets and shown what a true team player he is. 

That aside Tom is a very committed member of the team, he never misses training, always turns up on time, listens and takes instructions on board. He is the first there on match day and gives his all in every game. He is humble and consistent and cracks on with whatever is needed. In my opinion his effort, attitude and results deserve recognition. 

 

Thank you.

I would like to make a nomination for Abdoul of the Hotspurs.

 

After our match in December, a nasty incident broke out with one of the Hotspurs players and a member of Dynamos. Abdoul, instead of joining in, behaved like a true captain and stood up to his team mate to diffuse the situation and pull his team away. It takes real strength of character to stand up to for what is right and stand up to your friends. By doing so, Abdoul showed not only strength of character but real integrity. 

Brilliant attitude from you Abdoul and you should be proud of yourself.

Nominee - Suni Bains 

Suni has been a long standing member of the Little League and is in his 2nd year with the Wanderers. Suni has all the right characteristics as a leader and captain of the team but more importantly he has a wonderful attitude and approach to his team and opponents. He is always at training, keen and eager to help the team as well as on match days. He’s a credit to coach and is a valuable member of the little league but more so his family hence I believe he would be a worthy winner 

 

Thanks

I would like to nominate Philippe Agraviador for the Jack Petchey award.

 

Philippe is new to the league and only recently joined the Hawks. He is quite far behind most of the rest of the team in terms of footballing ability, but Philippe has shown great desire to learn and improve. He always applies himself as best he can in training and in matches, and his determination has started to reap rewards. It is easy to come into a team when you are a strong player, but must be far more daunting when you are new to the game.  

Thanks  

Stu

I would like to nominate Nathan from the Hotspurs. 

 

Nathan has committed to his team in training and Saturdays. 

Nathan has had some challenges of his own feeling like he wasn’t good enough and had overcome these feelings several times in the last few months and come through for the team over and over.  He is a good all round team player and gives his all. Nathan is very polite and a pleasure to have on the team. 

He has shown the ethic of little league and is an asset to any team in the future. 

 

Thank you

All the players that play the great game of Football have a passion that is an inspiration to many. Passion, Skill, Determination, Abilities are just some of the attributes that separate some of these players. Many have one or two some a few more but very few have all of three. It is for this reason the player I feel whom is worthy of this nomination is MJ.  

 

He has played probably more games than any other player and across the teams. He recognises his abilities are not the same as others.    

I would say better. He gets up and gets stuck in regadress of rain sun wind down or snow. Seeing him play is an inspiration in itself. He is a good role model to his team which is hard to find in some players . 

Personally I have know him and his family not only through football but at our times together with the Salvation Army in Carshalton where he was always ready to help the younger groups so my nomination has to be for MJ.

Determination, commitment, dedication, never give up - well done MJ good luck.

I'd like to nominate MJ for the award (see Vicky's email).  

I have many reasons beginning with the fact it’s his last season and has not won before and he has been there from the very 1st year the rascals were set up and has hardly missed a match!  

He’s always been a great team player has always helped set up and pack away on many an occasion. He now helps to coach and train his brothers team and has also run the line many times in different leagues. Which I am sure he will be helping manage next season as he won’t be playing himself. His commitment is amazing to his team and himself he loves his football. And all this with his disabilities that on occasion have had us in tears together when he has nearly given up because he can’t do it all! 

 

So a worthy winner and an asset to Sutton Little League.

I'd like to nominate MJ (Gladiators)  

I know he's been nominated many times but I feel he embodies what Little League was set up for in the first place that being to offer football to all regardless of ability or disability.  I think I'm right in saying he has been with the league since the rascals and is now in his last year in the seniors. My experience with him is as player for the Blues in the Inters where he was the type of player we'd all want 100% committed and always there.  
If anyone is deserving of the JP award I believe its him.

I would like to nominate Tommy Frost (Peregrines) for the Jack Petchey award for February.

Last year Tommy was a goalkeeper in the bantems but this year for the first time decided he wanted to play outfield. I have been impressed with Tommy this season as he learns everything about playing outfield. He is willing to learn and has played in every position on the pitch. Tommy does this without any hesitation and puts 100% towards the role he has been assigned. Tommy has always turned up to training and every game with a positive attitude. He is a great character to have within the team and gets on really well with all his peers. 

Kids like Tommy Frost are the reasons we volunteer at Sutton Little League and recognition and encouragement really does give them an amazing boost. 

 

Thanks

I’d like to nominate Harry Knipe for the February award.
 
The Romans have had a torrid time this season with a bad run of results but their goalkeeper Harry has battled on. He hasn’t given up when many might have done, instead he’s picked the ball out of his net and carried on with the game. A good example of grit and determination.

i would like to nominate Landon of Dynamos as my final nomination for the season.
 
From the start of the season and throughout, he has led the tea as captain admirably. He is an ever present at training and matches with a strong work ethic and aptitude to help the others in the team to become better and work on their abilities. He is a very popular and selfless member of the team which has been rewarded and acknowledged by being voted players player and parents player of the season. He cares deeply about the team and his teammates and will be the first to help and defend his fellow players. I'm proud to have him as our captain.
Many thanks

I would like to nominate Suni Bains from the Wanderers in the Inters division for March's Jack Petchey award. 
 
I've been proud of Suni's sportsmanship, great attitude and positivity all season, but these past 2 months I've been especially proud of him. 
 
Suni's been deaf in one ear since birth, so it's sometimes been difficult to communicate with him during a match, however he is a phenomenal communicator himself on the pitch and at training. There have been matches where he's had to stand up for his team-mates when they've been given a hard time by opposition players, he speaks to the ref with respect even when questioning dodgy decisions, especially when those decisions have been unfair, and the Wanderers have come out on the wrong side of them. This shows a great maturity, people management, and consideration for other's feelings and well-being that he always holds above his own.  
 
We made him captain at the start of the year, and he's really embraced that responsibility. He leads by example in all things, effort and passion wise, he's always the first to congratulate a goalscorer, or pick up the keeper if he concedes a goal, and he always plays with a smile on his face. 
 
He also gets himself to and from training, never misses a session, though he lives a 4-mile bus journey away from where the Wanderers train. 
 
His commitment to the Wanderers, his mates, and the League has made us all proud of him. He's been a joy to work with and will be missed by everyone when he moves up to the Seniors next season. A shining example of what SLL stands for and someone who deserves everybody's vote. 
 
Albeit I am a bit bias, being his manager and all. 
 
Cheers

I would like to nominate Tom Thiselton from the Eagles.
 
As we all know stepping up to cover when the goalie is absent takes guts and a real team player. On numerous occasions Tom has volunteered when no one else in the team will go in goal. You may not know (as he never makes a deal out of it), but this is especially brave for Tom who suffers from Duanes syndrome, a rare condition that effects your sight. Tom is unable to move his eyes in an outward direction, meaning that unless something is directly in his central vision he sees double. Whats even more rare is Tom suffers with this in both eyes meaning his peripheral vision on both sides is double. Not only is he brave going in goal but it is also a much more daunting task for him. He won’t see the ball until the last minute, and providing he is looking directly at it, yet still he has managed to keep 2 clean sheets and shown what a true team player he is. 
That aside Tom is a very committed member of the team, he never misses training, always turns up on time, listens and takes instructions on board. He is the first there on match day and gives his all in every game. He is humble and consistent and cracks on with whatever is needed. In my opinion his effort, attitude and results deserve recognition. 
Thank you
