City Goalkeepers in Safe Hands

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.

Coaching has always been an interest of Scott’s and he is now developing this side of his game by helping to bring on new generations of local goalkeepers.

As part of Southwell City commitment to offering the best possible coaching to its young footballers, Scott will be running training sessions with Southwell City goalkeepers of all ages in April. This is in addition to extra training sessions for all City players which are being organised in partnership with former Arsenal player, Lee Canoville.

Next month, Scott will be launching his own goalkeeping school for boy and girls of all ages and abilities. The first session, which is free, takes place at the Memorial Ground in Southwell on May 12th. To book a spot, or to find out more, email [email protected] Scott can also be found on Instagram as scottloachgk.

Defibrillator in Memory of Peter Moyses

Defibrillator in Memory of Peter Moyses

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.

City Dads Run 21k for 2021

It’s been a tough year for us all, but two Southwell City dads will be looking to start the new year in a positive way this Saturday. They, and a few of their friends, will be seeing in 2021 by running 21k to raise funds for Newark Foodbank. The route will be in and around Southwell and Farnsfield.

Aidy Kumar and Holger Kessler are parents of two City U16’s player and were originally hoping to raise £600 for the local charity. At time of writing, they had already achieved this with just 25 pledges! But, they still welcome donations, not matter how small, and it would be great if we could really push this total up.

If you would like to support Aidy and Holger in raising funds for Newark Foodbank, please visit their Just Giving page to make your donation.

UPDATE: Also running are Jude Jarvis (who is a City Mum!), Amanda Banks, Chris Skelton and James Smith. Good luck to them all!

New Clubhouse Taking Shape

New Clubhouse

The redevelopment of the Southwell City football clubhouse at Brinkley has been making great progress, despite these difficult times. It is hoped that the building will be open for use by Spring 2021.

Southwell architect Joseph Kemish came up with the design for the new building and the builder carrying out the work is Chris Davies, who is also based locally. Both have been working closely with Jonny Upton and Rich Wilson from the football club.

City Chairman John Cunningham said “Joe and Chris have been so important throughout this whole project. Joe came up with a fantastic design and Chris and his team have been fundamental in delivering his idea. We are confident that the new clubhouse will be a great asset to the football club and the local community. It will also be a great advert for these two local businesses that have been so generous in their support of their local football team. We are all looking forward to it opening in 2021”

To speak to Joe or Chris about any local building project, please contact Joseph Kemish (01636 816972) or Chris Davies (07914 402113) and they will be pleased to assist.
