U21’s Win First Match

Southwell City’s new U21 team go off to a flying start to the season today. The newly formed team ran out easy victors at Barrowby in their first ever game in the new Notts Senior League Development Division

City were dominant from start to finish and the score could have easily been in double figures! Scorers Henry Eastgate and Robson Hazard both ended up with hat tricks in an impressive City display. An encouraging start indeed for Cal Law in his role as manager of the new team.

New Public Access Defibrillator

public access defibrillator

A new public access defibrillator has been fitted outside of the clubhouse at the War Memorial Recreation Ground.  The new device has been provided by Richard Moyses & Julie Pitchford, in memory of their late father Peter, who had a long association with the football club.

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.

The defibrillator is situated on the outside wall of the clubhouse, within easy reach of all pitches. It is also well positioned should it be needed in an emergency, at the tennis or bowls clubs, scouts or the playpark.

Success for City Girls

Southwell City Under 13 Girls have enjoyed a successful end to a heavily disrupted season. Needing a win in their last league game at home to Arnold to guarantee winning their league, they were ahead 1-0 at half time thanks to a goal direct from a corner from Lucy Carney and a clean sheet from Hope Barnes in goal. The second half saw a completely dominant display by Southwell go unrewarded as Arnold went 2-1 up with two quick-break goals. Then two goals from Seren Elias using her electrifying pace to out-sprint the defence followed by a fingertip save by Lucy Carney in the dying minutes secured the win and the 2nd Division title with an unbeaten record of 8 wins and 2 draws.

Three of the players, Alana Priestley, Lucy Carney & Hope Barnes then capped their fine seasons off by stepping up a year and helping the Under 14 girls to victory in their plate final against West Bridgford with a 4-1 win.

Next season, as well as winning promotion to the 1st Division, the girls will be moving to 11-a-side on full size pitches. Anyone currently in Year 8, no matter what your ability, who would like to give football a try, please contact Chris Barnes on 07870 928233

Take The Team Out For Pizza

A quick update on the Centenary Ground renovations and your chance to win your team its own Pizza Party at Brinkley!

Centenary Ground Update

Over the summer work will continue improving the Centenary Ground at Brinkley. After the clubhouse redevelopment, attention will now turn to the pitches, ready for next season. Our first job is the creation of a new Pitch 1. This will be an 11-a-side pitch. We will begin levelling and seeding the pitch shortly and, once this is done, perimeter fencing will be installed to create an enclosed playing area.

Putting a fence around the new main pitch has two big advantages. As well as creating a more enjoyable experience for both players and spectators, it also allows us to generate revenue for the club by selling advertising space. We are planning for the pitch to be ready for playing on by October and selling adverts before then will help us to cover some of the considerable cost of this next stage.

How You Can Help

The cost of advertising at Brinkley next season starts at just £150. For any local business looking to raise its profile locally and to show support for the club, we believe that this is great value.

We are now asking all of our managers to make their parents/players aware of this opportunity, as many will work within local businesses that would benefit from this kind of exposure.

We have 31 City teams registered for next season and we are asking each team to try and sell two boards. If we can achieve this bare minimum, that would raise nearly £10,000 for the club!

Win A Pizza Party for Your Team

We want to make this a bit of fun so we will offer a free Pizza Party at Brinkley for any junior team that sells just 10 banners between now and the end of July. We will supply the pizza and the clubhouse on the day of your choosing. Your players will have a great time and you will be supporting the club as well. What better incentive could you want. (We will also let every other team know when you do it!)

Note: Don’t be disheartened if your team can’t quite sell 10 adverts before July 31st. We will also be giving out some mystery prizes for teams that sell at least 5 advertising spots between now and the end of the promotional period. 😊

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!
