SJFA/SJFC Awards 2019/2020

The highlight of the SJFA & SJFC calendar culminates at our highly decorated Award ceremony where we celebrate the achievement, hard-work and dedication amongst players, coaches and managers.

This year, the third annual SJFA & SJFC awards ceremony was not going to be halted due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis but rather we went digital. We aired the ceremony online for the first time in our history.

With the support of the managers, the SJFA core team, Hujjat and Syed Films this years awards were an amazing event that shows SJ Football consistently sets the bar at 5 stars.

With over 260 live streams tuned into the event it shows the extraordinary support from the coaches, parents, boys, players and the community.

The Awards this year were in memory of:

As the awards are traditionally the end of our formal season we at SJFA would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our members and parents for the continued support and dedication.

This year our award Ceremony was a poignant moment where we celebrated our illustrious champion and visionary leader of SJFA formally known to all as “Uncle Mo” stepping down as chair of SJFA.

The mantle is now handed over to the incoming chair Nazir Rajvani at the award ceremony. Oh what big shoes he has to fill as Uncle raised the bar for this 5 star club to a whole new level.

At this point we would like to thank “Uncle Mo,” for all the support and hard work that he has dedicated to the club over the last three years of his tenure and hope he gets a rest over the summer. Inshallah we look forward to seeing him on the pitch back in his training gear when the 2020/2021 season starts.

We now turn to the start of our new season with all of the uncertainty we face we would like to reassure everyone that from next week the team will begin planning for the new season and league participation.
