The future of Southwell City’s young goalkeeping talent looks in safe hands — thanks to professional goalie Scott Loach.
Scott started playing football as a child for Southwell and has since gone on to make a career between the sticks. As well as representing England at U21 level, Scott has also played for numerous league teams including Watford, Ipswich, Notts County and Bradford City.

A campaign to raise money for a public access defibrillator has been started by Richard Moyses & Julie Pitchford, in memory of their late father Peter, a former chairman of Southwell City FC. The defibrillator will be situated outside of the football clubhouse in the Memorial Ground.
Richard said “my father spent many years volunteering for the club in many different roles, I have strong links with scouts and the family has always supported heart charities. We as a family hope that this will benefit the football, tennis and bowls clubs, as well as the scouts and all users of the park and playground”
Having a public access defibrillator available in an emergency can be lifesaving, especially in rural areas where ambulance response times may be longer. By using a defibrillator on someone within three minutes of them going into cardiac arrest, their chance of survival is increased to around 75 per cent.
Richard & Julie have raised over half of the money needed so far to fund the cost of the defibrillator. Donations were collected by D J Hall Funeral Directors, on behalf of the family. The football, bowls and tennis clubs have also contributed towards the fund.
To make a small pledge towards this worthy cause, please visit the Just Giving page that has now been set up by Richard & Julie.
