Southwell City FC has embarked on an ambitious project to upgrade its facilities to better serve the needs of the many adult, boys and girls teams that it currently runs.
At present, teams play matches at both Memorial Park and Brinkley and this long-term development plan would see the clubhouses and playing facilities at both sites remodelled and updated.
In order to start the scheme, the club is initially looking for funding from the Aviva Community Fund. It is appealing for players, fans and residents of Southwell to vote online for the project so that a judging panel can consider it.
If the bid is successful, the young footballers of Southwell will benefit from an improved playing surface and clubhouse facilities at Memorial Park. Female changing rooms, improved disabled facilities, child focused amenities and a new kitchen will all be included in the work.
The clubhouse at Memorial Park will also be redesigned to become a social hub for all teams. Club members, spectators and friends we be able to use the facilities for everything from match day refreshments, to birthday parties, wedding receptions and social meetings.
At Brinkley the redevelopment would focus on improving the facilities for 11-A-Side football and improving the clubhouse and changing areas. It is hoped that Football Association funding could pay for the cost of this work.
