St Panteleimon thanks Cypriot Football League

St Panteleimon FC is delighted to announce that our team will be playing in the Middlesex County League – Division 1, starting this coming season 2017/18.

We have secured a new home ground – North Greenford – where we’ll compete on Saturdays.

St Panteleimon FC was formed in 2015 to create a community, sporting and family based team that would grow to create memorable experiences, develop a bond of shared values and promote our cultural identity.

The St. Panteleimon FC philosophy is the provision of a safe and supportive community based setting, encouraging skills development, fitness, fair play and teamwork.

We would like to thank our fellow KOPA (Cypriot Football League) clubs for the warmth of their embrace, over our two seasons in the KOPA League, Division 2 then 1. It has been a wonderful experience. We will of course continue to remain part of the community of Greek and Cypriot clubs in the UK.

We would like to thank the KOPA League and its committee for their support and guidance. We will stay connected in an open spirit of continued friendship.

Our move to Saturday football excites us tremendously, and we – players, manager, coaching team, committee, fans, members, sponsors, circle of friends – look forward to a new adventure.

We invite and welcome you to our matches. It’s our honour to host you and receive your support.

Club Chairman, Savvas Andreou said: “Our aim is to maintain and promote our cultural identity, values and proud heritage as Greeks and as Cypriots. This bold new step will reinforce our community strength and give us an even more prominent platform”

Manager, George Frangeskou added: “We are absolutely delighted. My boys cannot wait to start the new season. We welcome new friendships at Middlesex and we will maintain existing friendships at KOPA.

“This is a huge boost. We look forward to making our club proud through our competitive and professional approach both on and off the pitch. I see tremendous energy in our Club ”

Club Chaplain, The Very Reverend Father Anastasios Salapatas said: “This new chapter opens up exciting possibilities for our Club. The Saints have come a long way in just two years. We have a vision and a clear strategy. Ours is a strong Greek Orthodox community. Combining this with our love of football, makes this an exceptional place to be. I look forward to many more great years ahead.”
