Brinkley Kick Off Times

Dear Junior Managers,

For the upcoming season, we will be implementing fixed kick off slots for Pitches 2 and 3 at Brinkley. To ensure a fair distribution of kick off times, you may need to coordinate with other managers to determine who gets which slot when the fixtures are released. Once agreed, you should only need to send one email to your league to request any changes to kick off times.

Brinkley – Pitch 2

The larger 11-a-side pitch is best suited for older players, starting from U15 and up. There are two kick off slots available: 10:30 and 12:30. Both slots have a duration of two hours, accommodating the longer game times for older players. Cup games must be played at 12:30 to allow for the possibility of extra-time and penalties if required. (A 10:30 kick off for cup games is only possible if there is no game at 12:30)

Brinkley – Pitch 3

This is a smaller 11-a-side pitch specifically designed for U13 and U14 players. Games on this pitch can commence at 09:30, 11:00, or 12:30. Each slot has a duration of 90 minutes. Similar to Pitch 2, cup games on this pitch must also be played at 12:30, allowing for the possibility of extra-time and penalties if necessary. (An earlier kick off for cup games is only allowed if no later games are scheduled for that pitch)

Any problems, please let me know by DM.

Kind Regards

Win A Pizza Party For Your Team

Dear Junior Managers,

We have an exciting opportunity for you and your team to win a pizza party at Brinkley! Not only will this be a fun and delicious experience for your players, but it will also help support our club.

As you may know, we are offering advertising space on pitch side banners around our main pitch. This is a fantastic way for local businesses to raise their profile and show support for our club. The cost for a banner is just £200 per season, or £360 for two banners. We believe this is great value for any business looking to gain exposure in our community.

Here’s where you come in. We’re asking all of our junior managers to spread the word about this opportunity to their parents and supporters. Many of you may have connections to local businesses that could benefit from this advertising. Talk to your sponsors and see if they would be interested in purchasing a banner. For those teams who have sold banners in the past, this is a great chance to renew those partnerships for the upcoming season.

Now, here’s the exciting part. Any junior team that sells just 6 banners between now and the end of August will win a free pizza party at Brinkley! We will provide the pizza and the clubhouse on a day of your choosing. Not only will your players have a great time, but you will also be supporting the club in a meaningful way. And don’t worry, we’ll make sure to let every other team know about your accomplishment!

So, what better incentive could you want? Not only can you help local businesses gain exposure, but you also have the chance to win a fantastic pizza party for your team. Spread the word, rally your parents and players, and let’s make this a season to remember both on and off the pitch.

Start Now!

Feel free to share this information with anybody you know who wants to support the club. Jonny Upton will be taking the orders. Please contact him through the club WhatsApp if you have any questions. Or email [email protected].

Good Luck!

Club Shop 2023/24

To all SCFC Managers and Coaches

The SCFC club shop has now been updated with the new junior home and away kits for the 2023/24 season. We’ve also added some training wear. Many more items, including replica senior shirts, will be added in coming days.

The junior playing kits are high quality sublimated kits which will last for more years than you need them for. This means that the numbers and logos will not peel or fade off like they have done in the past when using big brand kits. This is why we have gone down this route.

In future all kit orders should be made through the club shop. Jude at Best Sports will then contact you for details needed to complete your order (sponsor logo, shirts numbers etc). She has sample shirts for sizing and is always available if you have any questions.

It should be a simple and easy process and will take the stress out of ordering your new playing kit.

Festival of Football Brings Community Together

The annual Southwell City Festival of Football was a resounding success, taking place over two days in June. After a break of a few years due to the pandemic, it was fantastic to see the event back and more popular than ever. Teams from near and far came together to take part in the festival, which saw a boys tournament on the Saturday and a girls tournament on the Sunday.

The event was blessed with warm summer weather on both days, and an impressive 95 teams took part in the competition. The quality of the football was excellent, and the games were played in the best possible spirit. Southwell City even managed to pick up some silverware in a couple of age groups, despite some tough competition.

The occasion was a great advert for the town and many teams enjoyed it so much that they have promised to return for next year’s event when entries open.

The festival was made possible by the support of Southwell Rugby Club, who kindly allowed the use of their car park. This helped organisers to manage the large influx of visitors and kept traffic congestion to a minimum.
All in all, the Southwell City Festival of Football was a huge success, and we are looking forward to next year’s event already.

Southwell City Swifts Hit Their Goal

The U9 boys football team want to say a massive thank you to everyone that’s helped them with their recent fundraising effort.

The team were in desperate need of essential items to keep them warm and prepare them for games. So, fundraising began last season and recently they smashed their target by raising a whopping £1,060 and there’s no stopping them now.

It’s all been made possible by the generosity of parents, grandparents, EDF Energy and a few local businesses including Fun:Bikes, eVenture, Evolution Homes and Michon. So now the Swifts look so slick and professional in their new branded winter coats, fleeces, and zebra socks!

And it’s all paying off, the boys are unbeaten in 9 games and are also through to the Semi Finals of the U9 Sat Challenge Trophy on 22 April. Head Coach Peter Beardsley said “We’re all so proud of the boys, they’re going from strength to strength each week and they’re made up with their new gear and training kit.”

Plans for the War Memorial Ground

Now that the men’s senior team is based at Brinkley, the pitches at the War Memorial Ground are being used primarily by the club’s youngest players. The relocation of the 5 and 7-a-side football pitches in front of the clubhouse has been a great success and has helped to create an enjoyable atmosphere in the park when the teams are playing every weekend.

The cafe, inside the clubhouse is thriving and has become a real attraction for visitors to the park, ably managed by Nellie (a.k.a. Emily) and her helpers. All junior teams are now invited to have free Chip Cobs after matches, which certainly helps with team spirit!

Thanks to Southwell Town Council, the football club has received approval to build a new goal storage facility at the ground, to replace the rundown block that currently exists.
Once built, the club will be looking to purchase new foldable goals. These will be easier to store and quicker to assemble than the current ones. This improvement is something that we are sure that all our coaches will be pleased to see happen!

Another problem that the club is looking to solve is that of parking. Always an issue when games are being played, the club will be issuing advice to visiting teams before they arrive to try and reduce the number of cars each weekend.
