New Training Kit for City U15 Girls

Southwell City FC Under 15 girls have recently acquired new shirts to be used for training and as an away kit in support of Prostate Cancer UK.

The shirts were partly funded by a sponsored bag-pack the girls undertook at Morrisons in Newark, along with contributions from his family in memory of Colin Barnes, a grandfather of one of the team, who was taken prematurely by this insidious disease.

It is hoped that fathers, uncles, grandfathers and anyone else seeing the Prostate Cancer logo on their shirts might be motivated into finding out how to spot the early signs of the illness that might ultimately save their lives. More information can be found by visiting https://prostatecanceruk.org/ where those interested in supporting the ongoing battle against this illness can make a donation.

1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, it’s the second most common diagnosed cancer with the disease being the 5th highest cause of cancer related death in men. If you would like to make a donation, please make it in memory of Colin Barnes so that Prostate Cancer UK can gauge the impact wearing the shirts has had.

The team are in the process of procuring a new home kit, thanks to the generosity of their new sponsor, Buckley Brown Estate Agents from Mansfield, which will display the Prostate Cancer UK logo on its sleeve for even greater exposure of the organisation and the valuable work they do.

Back row (L to R):Alicia Vickers, Alex Brackenbury, Anna Cunningham, Lucy Carney, Millie Baxter, Isla McAdam, Alana Priestley, Hope Barnes

Front Row (L to R):TL, Daisy Stevenson, Lydia Tank, Chloe Thompson, Edie Kelly, Darcey Bex, Jess Robinson

Southwell City Are League Champions

Southwell City have been crowned 2021-22 Notts Senior League champions after a 4-1 away win at FC Cavaliers. It’s the first league title for the team for 21 years and should enable promotion to Step 6 of the non-league pyramid for the first time in the club’s history.

It’s been an impressive season for the lads, in which they went on an unbeaten run that broke all previous records.

Chairman John Cunningham said, “The first team has been a real credit to the club. They have set out to play entertaining and exciting football, in the right way. The lads can be very proud of themselves. I am certainly proud of them. Huge thanks must go out to Jonny Upton and the rest of his management team for creating a positive environment where this team has been able to truly fulfil its potential”

Juniors and Seniors Together

A record crowd was in attendance at the final home game of the season against AFC Dunkirk. Junior players from the club were mascots for the day and took part in an enjoyable penalty shoot out at half-time.

It’s also been a successful season for City’s junior section. The club is now represented by over 30 teams from Under 6’s through to Under 18’s. Both boys and girls teams are strongly represented at all age groups. The clubhouse at the Memorial Ground is now the junior hub and the club is investing significant time and money into improving the facilities in the building.

One recent improvement has been the opening of a new weekend cafe at the clubhouse that is open to all visitors to the Memorial Ground. Run by Nellie At The Park, the new cafe will serve food and drinks which customers can enjoy sitting both inside and outside. The cafe is set to become a popular attraction for all visitors to the park.

SCFC Spring Training Times

Below are the spring/summer training times for the Memorial Ground. With the club now having more teams than ever, and with some days that are very congested, we have had to tweak some of the times to fit everybody in. Apologies if this does mean that your time has shifted slightly.

There are a lot of changes taking place at the MG right now. These are long-term changes that will benefit all of the younger teams and which will allow us more flexibility over training times going forward. In the short-term though it really does help if coaches can fit around this plan. Your cooperation is genuinely appreciated.

Memorial Ground Improvements

Hi everyone

Memorial Ground Improvements

I just wanted to bring you all up to speed on some exciting new developments taking place at the Memorial Ground in April.

As many will know, with the senior teams moving to Brinkley the aim has always been to develop the Memorial Ground into our hub for junior football for 5, 7 and 9-a-side teams.

The first stage of this process will begin on Saturday 23rd April, when we start moving 5 and 7-a-side pitches in front of the clubhouse, onto what was the main first team pitch. Unfortunately the grass is not in great condition right now, and will need treatment over the summer, but we should be ready to open at least two 5-a-side pitches on this date.

The move to the new pitches ties in with work being carried out on the clubhouse. We have ripped the kitchen out and have refitted the facilities to allow Nellie at the Park to move in and take charge of all of our matchday catering.

From the 23rd, Nellie will be offering barista coffee, other hot drinks, and hot food, such as bacon and sausage cobs. She will be open all day on match days and possibly on some training nights.

Team managers will also be pleased to hear that we will now also be offering complimentary hospitality for home and away teams on match days. Free chip cobs will be available for all teams after games. We are sure all of our young players will love this after match treat. And you can invite the away team along too. We will set up a simple booking system for you to use to take advantage of this new facility.

Another new development will be Friday Night Football, which we hope to introduce when the weather is nice over the summer. The plan is to open the clubhouse, lay on some football for the kids, and open the bar and BBQ for the adults. More to come on this shortly.

Finally, we are back to training on grass next week. With new teams coming through, and a big demand for pitch use, we are having to shuffle training times about a tiny bit to fit everybody in. I will publish the timetable over the weekend, but we do ask that managers are flexible and will go along with the plan. As you can see, the exec committee is working hard to offer a great experience for players, coaches and parents when they come down to the MG. We hope that all managers will work with us to make this club one that we are all proud of.

Have a great weekend,

John
On behalf of the Southwell City Exec Committee

Under 18’s End 2021 in Style

Southwell City U18’s football team finished 2021 in style, winning their last six games of the year, scoring 29 goals in the process and conceding just 7. The team deserved to finish on a high after some great performances, which also saw them progress through two rounds of the cup.

Many of the lads in the team are now also playing for the club’s new Under 21 team and are on the verge of getting experience of adult football with the first team. For one or two of the players, it will be a real milestone when they do make their senior debuts as they will have been with the club since they were just 7 years old. A fantastic achievement!

Under 9’s
One of the clubs younger teams, the Under 9’s boys, are in desperate need of a manager to allow the team to enter the league and play regular matches. Currently they are attending training sessions run by one of the club’s coaches. However they now need a willing parent that would be able to take the team under his or her wing. Full training will be given to any volunteer, including FA Coach training, safeguarding and first aid. Please contact Adrian Purdy ([email protected]) in the first instance, if you think that could be the next Pep Guardiola of junior football!
