City U12’s All Kitted Out

Southwell City’s two U12 boys football teams will be looking all the smarter this season as they will both be wearing new Nike football kits, supplied by McDonalds.

The football club has benefited from a scheme that has seen the fast food giant offering free football kits to FA Chartered Standard teams such as City.

Launched in 2001, the FA Charter Standard Programme is the FA’s accreditation scheme for grassroots clubs and leagues. The award is given to clubs that are rigorously adjudged to be well-run and sustainable – and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.

For nearly a decade, City has been an FA Community Club – this is highest level available under the FA’s Charter Standard program.  Today, the club continues to build on this firm foundation and is now one of the biggest in the county, with over 30 boys, girls and adult teams.

This season, the club will be working closely with an FA Coach Mentor in order to further increase the quality of coaching throughout the club.

Another successful season for Southwell City Romans

It’s been another enjoyable season for Southwell City Romans U11’s. For the second year running they finished in a trophy position in the league. This time they finished runners up in a very competitive YEL Spring League campaign, finishing off in style with an 8-1 victory over East Leake.

More important than the results though has been the style and quality of football played by the team over the course of the season. With a strong emphasis being placed on passing football, they were a very enjoyable team to watch at times. Well done boys!
