Saracens Bid Farewell To Mark

After 5 years as football coach and manager of Southwell City Saracens, Mark Gardner has decided to move on to another challenge with his son Alex. The two will move over to join City’s Under 11 Dynamos, with Mat Bell stepping up to manage the Under 11 Saracens, with coaching assistance from Adam Rayns.

The players and coaches recently got together to celebrate all the hard work Mark has put in over the past few seasons for the team. Mat Bell is keen to take on the new role and said that he is “looking forward to continuing the excellent work that Mark has done over the past 5 years.”

Mark said “I would like to thank to Southwell City for helping me to achieve my FA Level 1 coaching qualification. It has really helped me in my time training the boys.  I also wish Mat and the team all the best for the future.”

The Saracens have had a very respectable start to the new football season after being promoted to Division 2. So far, they have won 4 and lost 3 in an exceptionally competitive league. Clearly, Under 11 football at Southwell City is in very good hands right now!

Whites Looking to Recruit

Southwell City Whites are looking to recruit new players to join their U12 football team in the new year. The boys currently play 9-a-side matches in the Young Elizabethan League every Sunday and are now looking to grow the squad as they will be moving to 11-a-side games next Summer.

Manager Paul Sharpe has always run the team using a small number of players. This has allowed him to offer maximum playing time to all the boys in the squad. This philosophy has seen him develop a well has run team that been very successful. In the last two years, they have won two league titles and one league cup!

The boys are pictured wearing a new kit for this season, which has been kindly provided by County Flooring & Supplies Ltd.
