U16 Girls Bow Out In Style

After 9 years together and 8 seasons playing in the Notts Girls & Ladies League, Southwell City U16 Girls have played their final game.  And what a game it was!

On Sunday 13th May the team played in the Notts Girls & Ladies League Cup Final at Calverton Miners Welfare.  After a league campaign that saw the team finish in joint fourth with Mickleover Sports all our hopes were riding on our final game of the season against Sandiacre Town.  After a tough route in to the final which included a 5-1 win over Nottingham Forest Ladies, a 3-0 win over Sherwood Youth and a semi final v Bingham Town which went to penalties, we were all set for our big day.  As league runners up, Sandiacre were always going to be hard opposition to beat.  In fact Sandiacre were a team we had never beaten in any league campaign and they themselves were only beaten once during the season by the eventual league winners.  I have to say, much of the day passed in a blur of joy.  We scored two brilliant goals in the first half, thanks to Chante Dixon and Jessica Wright, to leave Sandiacre reeling.  After half time Sandiacre came out fighting and we found ourselves pegged in our own half for much of the second half.  With a superb performance by our defence and keeper, Rachael Alvey, we managed to hold off Sandiacre for long periods of time.  Sandiacre eventually scored after some relentless attacking but a supreme effort from all the Southwell players saw us finish as 2-1 winners when the final whistle was blown.  It really was a fitting end to the team’s final game.

With a small squad of 12 players playing 11-a-side football the decision was made to fold the team at the end of the 2017/18 season.  A lot of the girls will continue to play football either with our own Southwell City Ladies team or other local teams.  Working with the team over the seasons has been an absolute pleasure and extremely rewarding.  I wish them all the best on their future football endeavours.

The team formed many years ago as a result of Southwell City’s successful girls recruitment program.  Southwell City coaches, who are all DBS checked, FA qualified and first aid trained, go in to local schools during the summer term and run after school taster sessions.  This culminates in a Girls Inter School Tournament held on the Memorial Ground in Southwell where the girls get to experience playing in a team under match conditions with referees.  The success of this program has seen Southwell City have girls teams from U9 to Ladies playing in the Notts Girls and Ladies League.  Should you be interested in joining a team please contact our Girls Development Officer Sven Richards at [email protected] or 07818 374 336.

5 out of 5 for City

Southwell City’s amazing start to the season continued on Saturday. The first team played host to Sandiacre Town and produced another impressive display, running out 3-0 winners at the Memorial Ground. Ant Brown, Calum Law and Robert Haigh scored City’s goals. City also missed a penalty.

City have now won all five of their Nottinghamshire Senior League fixtures, scoring 18 goals and conceding just 3. They currently sit second in the table, behind Awsworth Villa on goals difference.

Next up for City is an away trip to Bilborough Town on Saturday.

Reserves Games Abandoned

On a sadder note, our reserve team fixture at Kimberley Miners Welfare had to be abandoned after City player, Huw Plume, broke his leg. The game was evenly poised at 1-1 when the game was stopped. The club sends out its best wishes to Huw and wishes him a speedy recovery.

Ladies Debut

Southwell City Ladies open their Nottinghamshire Girls and Ladies Football League campaign today with a match against Clifton All Whites Ladies at the Memorial Ground. More news on this opening game of the season will follow.

City Scorpions Do the Double

On Saturday 12th May, Southwell City Scorpions Under 9’s completed the league and cup double, to end what turned out to be a successful season for the team. They won 2-1 in the final of the YEL Under 9’s Cup final at Hucknall Rolls Royce, thanks to two goals from Lewis Swift. Two weeks previously the team had completed the competitive league season, finishing top of the YEL Saturday Division 1, winning all 5 out of 5 games.

At the start of the season the team moved from 5 aside to 7 aside and have progressed and developed both as individuals and as a team throughout the course of the season. Since Christmas the team have won every game and over the course of the season they have won 19 out of 23 games, scoring 96 goals, with a goal difference of +61. A fantastic effort!

Southwell City Under 9’s currently has two teams the ‘Scorpions’ and the ‘Warriors’ and are looking to expand that to three teams for the 2018/2019 season. If there are any players, currently year 2, who are looking to join a local football team then please email [email protected].
