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!

This is a great photo of the Southwell City team, taken shortly after the club reformed in 1955. This photograph was taken at Norwood Hall. At the time, City played home games on Crafts Fields in Southwell, which is now a housing estate.

Cavaliers & Roundheads Unite!

Cavaliers & Roundheads Unite!

Girls football is thriving at Southwell City. Thanks to the success of the club and the increased media exposure that ladies football is receiving at the moment, the Under 11 Girls team now has enough players to run two teams.

The team was established 4 years ago with just 5 players and on occasions for the first couple of years they struggled to put a full team out to compete in matches. However player numbers steadily grew as the club proactively went into local schools to introduce girls to football.

Last summer the club recruited so many players the decision was made to enter a second team into the league. The original team, of mainly established players, became the Cavaliers and a second team of mainly new players was created and called the Roundheads. The names were decided by a player vote and were suggested to reflect the civil war history of the town.

The coaching team of 7 are DBS checked and have between them FA coaching, safeguarding & first aid qualifications. The girls train on Mondays between 7pm & 8pm and Thursdays between 6pm and 7pm both as a combined team with matches on a Sunday morning.

At present the two teams have 26 registered players and 4 giving football a try but as the teams move from 7 to 9-a-side next season, they are looking to recruit further to ensure that both teams can be sustained.

Anyone interested in coming along to see if football is for them can attend training for free. The only requirements are enthusiasm and being in the current year 5 or 6 at school.

For further information please contact either Chris Barnes (Cavaliers) tel. 07870928233 [email protected] or Sven Richards (Roundheads) tel. 07818274336 [email protected].

Back in Time – City 1922/23

Southwell City Football Club was first formed in 1893. This means that the club is now enjoying it’s 125th anniversary.

We are now looking for club photographs, through the ages, which we will publish on the club website in order to show the long history of this football club.

The image above is a great team photo, featuring the Southwell City team of 1922/23. Second from left is Samuel Booth, a coal merchant in Westgate. The man with the towel is Barney Johnson, landlord of the George and Dragon pub (now known as the The Bramley Apple Inn).

If you have an old photograph, negative or a digital copy of any Southwell City related photos, please contact us as we would love to show them on this website.

New Sponsor for City Dynamos

The footballers of Southwell City Dynamos will be looking smarter than ever this season. Thanks to a new sponsorship deal, the Under 11 team now has a new football kit, as well as hoodies, tops and jackets. The generous support has been provided by Edward Andrew, trading as Maplebeck Tree Care.

Maplebeck Tree Care offer all aspects of arboricultural management in the Southwell area. The company client list includes Southwell Minster, Bishops Manor and Lowes Wong Junior School, where a majority of the football team’s players attend. The Arborist team carrying out the Arboricultural works includes two retained firemen, who are both local to Southwell.

On the pitch, the football team is doing well. In the four years that they have been playing together, the players have managed to secure a divisional winners title and a runners-up award. This season the team has added three new players and is currently undefeated.
