City Progress In Cup

A makeshift City line-up took on Welbeck Lions this afternoon in the Notts FA Saturday Senior Cup. Despite a below par performance from the team, they progress to the next round courtesy of goals from Law and Nussey (Pen).

It was a memorable afternoon though for 16 year old, Ben Napier who came on as a substitute and made his senior debut for City today. (Pictured above)

Match Stats can be found here.

Earlier in the week, City strengthened their grip on the top of the Notts Senior League Premier Division table with an 8-1 demolishing of Bilborough Town at the Memorial Ground.  This is now the third time the team have scored eight in a match this season.

Reserves Games Abandoned

On a sadder note, our reserve team fixture at Kimberley Miners Welfare had to be abandoned after City player, Huw Plume, broke his leg. The game was evenly poised at 1-1 when the game was stopped. The club sends out its best wishes to Huw and wishes him a speedy recovery.

Ladies Debut

City Supporting Mind in 2018/19

The new 1st Team home kit, all ready for tomorrow! Thanks to Sportstar for printing & Klean Fitness
looking great on the front!

This season, we’re also promoting Mind Mental Health. 25% of the total population suffer from
mental health, yet only 1/4 of those people suffering seek support. On top of that, suicide is
the most common cause of death for men aged 20-49 – so it’s incredibly important any sufferers
can feel comfortable opening up.

We will pick 2 Home games this season where all profits, including player donations, are given to
the charity. It’s a great cause!
