Celebrating Jonny Upton’s 200-Game Milestone

Jonny Upton recently completed a remarkable milestone, reaching 200 games as the manager of the men’s first team, a fantastic achievement.

Appointed in January 2018, Jonny has been an integral part of the club ever since, contributing massively, both on and off the pitch. His tenure has been marked by some remarkable highs during those 200 games. In May 2019, his team won the NSL Senior Cup, defeating Stapleford Town by a resounding score of 6-1. This triumph marked the club’s first trophy since 2002. In May 2022, the team further cemented their success, finishing the NSL Premier Division as champions. As a result, the team earned promotion to the United Counties League, the highest level in the club’s history.

In recognition of Jonny’s outstanding contribution, Club Chairman John Cunningham recently presented him with a bottle of 2018 vintage wine as a token of the club’s gratitude and appreciation for his efforts.

Congratulations to Jonny on reaching this impressive 200-game milestone. Here’s to many more successes and achievements under his leadership!

New Training Kit for City U15 Girls

Southwell City FC Under 15 girls have recently acquired new shirts to be used for training and as an away kit in support of Prostate Cancer UK.

The shirts were partly funded by a sponsored bag-pack the girls undertook at Morrisons in Newark, along with contributions from his family in memory of Colin Barnes, a grandfather of one of the team, who was taken prematurely by this insidious disease.

It is hoped that fathers, uncles, grandfathers and anyone else seeing the Prostate Cancer logo on their shirts might be motivated into finding out how to spot the early signs of the illness that might ultimately save their lives. More information can be found by visiting where those interested in supporting the ongoing battle against this illness can make a donation.

1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, it’s the second most common diagnosed cancer with the disease being the 5th highest cause of cancer related death in men. If you would like to make a donation, please make it in memory of Colin Barnes so that Prostate Cancer UK can gauge the impact wearing the shirts has had.

The team are in the process of procuring a new home kit, thanks to the generosity of their new sponsor, Buckley Brown Estate Agents from Mansfield, which will display the Prostate Cancer UK logo on its sleeve for even greater exposure of the organisation and the valuable work they do.

It’s been an impressive season for the lads, in which they went on an unbeaten run that broke all previous records.

Chairman John Cunningham said, “The first team has been a real credit to the club. They have set out to play entertaining and exciting football, in the right way. The lads can be very proud of themselves. I am certainly proud of them. Huge thanks must go out to Jonny Upton and the rest of his management team for creating a positive environment where this team has been able to truly fulfil its potential”

Juniors and Seniors Together

A record crowd was in attendance at the final home game of the season against AFC Dunkirk. Junior players from the club were mascots for the day and took part in an enjoyable penalty shoot out at half-time.

It’s also been a successful season for City’s junior section. The club is now represented by over 30 teams from Under 6’s through to Under 18’s. Both boys and girls teams are strongly represented at all age groups. The clubhouse at the Memorial Ground is now the junior hub and the club is investing significant time and money into improving the facilities in the building.

One recent improvement has been the opening of a new weekend cafe at the clubhouse that is open to all visitors to the Memorial Ground. Run by Nellie At The Park, the new cafe will serve food and drinks which customers can enjoy sitting both inside and outside. The cafe is set to become a popular attraction for all visitors to the park.
