Clubhouse Opportunity

The football club is looking for a volunteer (or volunteers) who might be interested in helping us to run and develop our two clubhouses at the Memorial Ground and Brinkley. This is a key role for the football club as we would like to improve the offer at both clubhouses, on match days and outside of these times.

The ideal candidate would be able to:

  • Organise staffing of both venues
  • Manage the club’s food and drink offer
  • Identify and develop new products and services to enhance visitor experience and to drive profitable sales
  • Manage all aspects of stock control/management
  • Take bookings for clubhouse events and to promote the venue for community use

We realise that this is a big role but it might be of interest for somebody who enjoys the hospitality industry and has a bit of time on their hands.

Alternatively we would also be interested to talk with anybody that might want to run this as a separate business, in partnership with the football club.

If you are interested to discuss the opportunity, please contact John Cunningham ([email protected] /  phone: 07305 311 354) to find out more.

Today in 1962

Southwell City first ever match programme was issued on this day in 1962. The club’s junior team were at home to Highbury Vale in a Notts FA Senior Shield first round match. Originally scheduled to take place on Becket’s Field, the game was player on the War Memorial Recreation Ground pitch. As can be seen from the scribbled, one page programme, City went on to win the match 1-0.

It was not until the 23rd of February 1980 that the club would start to issue regular matchday programme for first team matches.

New Sponsor for City’s Youngest Footballers

Southwell City’s youngest football teams, this year’s Under 7’s and Under 8’s, have a new kit sponsor, The Bramley. Starting this season, those teams will be wearing the distinctive red logo on the front of their shirts for the first time. And very smart they will look too!

City Chairman, John Cunningham said: “As a club, we wanted to recognise the important role that The Bramley has in supporting our local community and in promoting local sport. So, we were pleased to come to an agreement to promote the newspaper on the front of our youngest teams’ shirts. The kits look really smart, and I am sure the children will be proud to wear them when they play matches around the county.”

The club used a local supplier, Sportstar of Southwell, to design and manufacture the kit, part of a wider commitment with them to produce teamwear for all City teams.

Any boys and girls that are keen to play football can find information on the club website. As well as teams in most age groups, very young players can also attend City Kickers, which is for the youngest players aged 4-7.
