Football Boot Amnesty

Please can you dig out any clean football boots that are gathering dust in your garage. We will be holding a “boot amnesty” at our Presentation Day this Saturday (18th May).

The football club has already collected a number of pairs of boots that are available to purchase from just £5. Many of these boots are in excellent condition and are often only lightly used due to players growing out of them.

Boots can be donated directly to our stall in front of the clubhouse, or behind the bar if arriving before 10.00am on Saturday. All proceeds from the sale of boots will go to the club redevelopment fund.

So come down on Saturday, bringing your old boots and maybe you will be able to grab a bargain new pair at the same time!

City Coaches Aim for Next Level

Southwell City Football Club with shortly have seven new FA Level 2 coaches as the club continues in its objective of offering the highest level of coaching to all players within the club.

At present, grassroots football teams are only required to use coaches with a minimum FA Level 1 coaching qualification. Last year, the club took the decision to try and raise the standard at Southwell City, with the aim of offering the highest quality coaching possible.

Seven coaches are expected to complete their FA Level 2 qualification in Spring 2019. They are Alastair Baird, Chris Barnes, John Cunningham, Jonny Upton, Mitch Annable, Paul Muckle and Richard Miller. These coaches are involved in boys, girls and adult football at the club. Going forward, the club will be asking any new coaches to also consider studying for this higher qualification.

The Level 2 course is taken in three blocks and part of the process involves coaches being observed by the FA at training sessions and on match days.

City’s Vice Chair, John Cunningham, said “We have some great people, who are giving up many hours of their own time to try and be better football coaches, for the benefit of players of all ages at Southwell City. Rich Wilson must be thanked for his vision and for working closely with Steve Thompson from the FA to deliver a bespoke course for this group of dedicated, volunteer coaches.”

Proud Day for City Vipers

Southwell City FC Vipers Under 9s team recently attended the Winter Presentation Day at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham to receive their runners up trophies from the winter Under 9s Young Elizabethan League (YEL).

The team manager, Jay Richardson took over the Vipers in September last year after the team had no manager and has since completed his FA level 1 coaching course.
