City Scorpions Do the Double

On Saturday 12th May, Southwell City Scorpions Under 9’s completed the league and cup double, to end what turned out to be a successful season for the team. They won 2-1 in the final of the YEL Under 9’s Cup final at Hucknall Rolls Royce, thanks to two goals from Lewis Swift. Two weeks previously the team had completed the competitive league season, finishing top of the YEL Saturday Division 1, winning all 5 out of 5 games.

At the start of the season the team moved from 5 aside to 7 aside and have progressed and developed both as individuals and as a team throughout the course of the season. Since Christmas the team have won every game and over the course of the season they have won 19 out of 23 games, scoring 96 goals, with a goal difference of +61. A fantastic effort!

Southwell City Under 9’s currently has two teams the ‘Scorpions’ and the ‘Warriors’ and are looking to expand that to three teams for the 2018/2019 season. If there are any players, currently year 2, who are looking to join a local football team then please email [email protected].

Donate Your Old Boots

Please can you dig out any clean football boots or trainers that are gathering dust in your garage. We will be holding a “boot amnesty” at our tournament this Saturday and Sunday (16th / 17th June).

The football club has already collected a number of pairs of boots that are available to purchase from just £5. Many of these boots are in excellent condition and are often only lightly used due to players growing out of them.

Boots can be donated directly to our stall on either day. All proceeds from the sale of boots will go to the club redevelopment fund.

Kind Regards

John Cunningham
Vice Chair

Join the 125 Club!

Did you know, Southwell City Football Club was first founded in 1893?  That means that our club is celebrating its 125th birthday this year!

Earlier this season, the club revealed an ambitious plan to upgrade and improve facilities for football in the town and is looking for sponsors to help fund this exciting project.

Over the next three years we are planning to relocate all senior football to Brinkley, into a small stadium that will allow our adult football teams to thrive. This will allow us to focus on junior football in the town. Our aim is to create a fantastic clubhouse at the Memorial Ground, with catering and improved facilities. We also plan to upgrade the pitches to offer the best possible football experience for everybody.

Duck Race 2018

This year’s Southwell Lions ‘Duck Race’ takes place in conjunction with the Family Fun Day on the Burgage in Southwell on Saturday 23rd June. Southwell City FC will be promoting and supporting the event by selling ducks prior to the ‘race’ at our upcoming Presentation Day and Tournament Weekend.

Look out for the inflatable pools where you will get the chance to hook out ducks to produce random numbers which will determine the placings in this year’s race. The Lions will also run a market stall prior to the event where you can buy a duck.

Ducks cost £1 each and as ever, all profits from the race will go into the Southwell Lions Charity Account and will help a worthy local cause.

Please help support this great cause and buy a duck!
