The club has organised extra training sessions for Southwell City teams in April with Canoville Coaching.
Slots can be booked here using the online booking form below.
A campaign to raise money for a public access defibrillator has been started by Richard Moyses & Julie Pitchford, in memory of their late father Peter, a former chairman of Southwell City FC. The defibrillator will be situated outside of the football clubhouse in the Memorial Ground.
Richard said “my father spent many years volunteering for the club in many different roles, I have strong links with scouts and the family has always supported heart charities. We as a family hope that this will benefit the football, tennis and bowls clubs, as well as the scouts and all users of the park and playground”
Having a public access defibrillator available in an emergency can be lifesaving, especially in rural areas where ambulance response times may be longer. By using a defibrillator on someone within three minutes of them going into cardiac arrest, their chance of survival is increased to around 75 per cent.
Richard & Julie have raised over half of the money needed so far to fund the cost of the defibrillator. Donations were collected by D J Hall Funeral Directors, on behalf of the family. The football, bowls and tennis clubs have also contributed towards the fund.
To make a small pledge towards this worthy cause, please visit the Just Giving page that has now been set up by Richard & Julie.
It’s been a tough year for us all, but two Southwell City dads will be looking to start the new year in a positive way this Saturday. They, and a few of their friends, will be seeing in 2021 by running 21k to raise funds for Newark Foodbank. The route will be in and around Southwell and Farnsfield.
Aidy Kumar and Holger Kessler are parents of two City U16’s player and were originally hoping to raise £600 for the local charity. At time of writing, they had already achieved this with just 25 pledges! But, they still welcome donations, not matter how small, and it would be great if we could really push this total up.
If you would like to support Aidy and Holger in raising funds for Newark Foodbank, please visit their Just Giving page to make your donation.
UPDATE: Also running are Jude Jarvis (who is a City Mum!), Amanda Banks, Chris Skelton and James Smith. Good luck to them all!
City Kickers is back tomorrow (Saturday) and we are looking forward to another fun morning. As usual, Lawrence will be the coach for both sessions, which take place in front of the Memorial Ground clubhouse in Southwell. Each session costs just £5 per player.
F2 & Year 1: 09.00 to 10.00 am
Year 2: 10:00 to 11.00 am
Both groups are now close to full, so to guarantee your child’s place, please use the booking form below.

Southwell City is pleased to announce that we will be offering online training for all of our players during lockdown. We will be running three sessions a week, in collaboration with our partner, Canoville Coaching. These FREE OF CHARGE sessions for our players are run via Zoom and take place on w/c 9th, 16th and 23rd November. Hopefully we will then be allowed to resume training as normal.
The sessions will be mixed groups (girls/boys/ages) and consist of a live 30-minute football related exercise drill. All attendees will also receive a YouTube link to a 30-minute Canoville Coaching training drills session. The groups will be:
– U6 – U9’s – Thursdays with Lawrence 5.45 to 6.15 pm
– U10 – U12’s – Tuesdays with Henri 6.00 – 6.30 pm
– U13’s and above – Tuesdays with Henri 6.45 – 7.15 pm
The club will email the Zoom links before each week’s session. Attendees should ensure they join the sessions on time and with microphones muted.
We hope you agree that this is a really positive opportunity for the players to continue with some football training during these difficult times.
Thank you & stay safe!
Southwell City FC
Southwell City F.C. U9’s Sharks have had a fantastic start to the new football season. They are unbeaten in their first four games, scoring 13 goals and conceding just 7.
However, it is not all about results for the coach Martin Russell. He is enjoying managing a group of local boys that has a fantastic team spirit. For him, making sure that the players are enjoying their football and playing for fun is the top priority.
All of the team send out massive thanks to sponsors East Midlands Carpets Ltd (EMC) and HAE Group for the team’s new kit, which looks great and was supplied by Sportstar of Southwell.
