11-Jun-10 Spartak 78 Presentation Day Spartak 78 2009-10 Presentation Day
June 26th @ 1pm

Spartak 78 2010 Presentation Day
The presentation day on Sat 26th June at Sewards End Village Hall will kick off earlier than usual this year (doors open 1.00 pm for a 1.30 pm start) as we wish to be completed by 7.00 pm. This is because England may have a last 16 game (if they win their group) with a 7.30 pm KO, and the club plans to screen the game at the hall after completion of the presentations. It is hoped that many families will stay behind and cheer on England along with the rest of the club. The final document listing timings for individual age groups will be circulated during week commencing 14th June, but I can say broadly that the mini league presentations will be first, and will be between 1.30 pm and 3.00 pm, with the Colts presentations following afterwards. Raffle draw will be held at 5pm and there will also be a "slient auction" winners to be announced around 7pm.

08-Jun-10 Spartak 78 U18 Spartak 78 U18 New Kit Sponsors - NISA Supermarket

Spartak 78 U18 New Kit Sponsors
Spartak under 18s - Having completed a successful first season in the Royston and Crow league the Spartak under 18's took on the managers and coaches of Spartak to prove that youth and energy was more important than experience. However they were wrong and didn't reckon on the Spartak managers being a mixture of all ages and had both energy and experience. The game started well and before half time the youngsters opened the score. Chances beckoned for the managers and before long they were 2 - 1 up. The second half was dominated by the managers and the final score finished 4 - 1. The match was the perfect opportunity for the team to show off their new kit, which has been very kindly sponsored by NISA Supermarket. Pictured (below) is Neil O'Sullivan receiving the cheque from John Visani of Nisa supermarket in Cromwell Road, Saffron Walden. Neil has now played his last game for Spartak as will be playing in Kansas USA next season. Spartak under 18's are entering into a senior league next season and will be looking for extra ex Spartak players.
