Please can you dig out any clean football boots that are gathering dust in your garage. We will be holding a “boot amnesty” at our Presentation Day this Saturday (18th May).
The football club has already collected a number of pairs of boots that are available to purchase from just £5. Many of these boots are in excellent condition and are often only lightly used due to players growing out of them.
Boots can be donated directly to our stall in front of the clubhouse, or behind the bar if arriving before 10.00am on Saturday. All proceeds from the sale of boots will go to the club redevelopment fund.
So come down on Saturday, bringing your old boots and maybe you will be able to grab a bargain new pair at the same time!
Did you know, Southwell City Football Club was first founded in 1893? That means that our club is celebrating its 125th birthday this year!
Earlier this season, the club revealed an ambitious plan to upgrade and improve facilities for football in the town and is looking for sponsors to help fund this exciting project.
Over the next three years we are planning to relocate all senior football to Brinkley, into a small stadium that will allow our adult football teams to thrive. This will allow us to focus on junior football in the town. Our aim is to create a fantastic clubhouse at the Memorial Ground, with catering and improved facilities. We also plan to upgrade the pitches to offer the best possible football experience for everybody.
Join The 125 Club
Our new 125 Club has just been launched to allow individuals and businesses to show their support for the club in its 125th year. To join the club costs just £125 and all of that money will go be used to help the club to improve its facilities for the benefit of players, supporters and the whole town of Southwell.
What Do You Get for £125?
As well as the warm, fuzzy feeling of knowing that your sponsorship of the club is helping to build a brighter future for football in Southwell, we can also offer the following tangible benefits:
Your name / logo on the 125 Club Sponsors Board in the clubhouse
For individuals – your name on the club website.
For companies – your logo, web link and phone number on the club website.
Sponsor listing in our boys and girls tournament programme.
Social media posting to announce your sponsorship of the club
We hope that this will be an affordable option for many to show their support for the club. For this reason we are limiting membership to 125 members and hope in future to offer exclusive benefits and opportunities for 125 club members.

This year’s Southwell Lions ‘Duck Race’ takes place in conjunction with the Family Fun Day on the Burgage in Southwell on Saturday 23rd June. Southwell City FC will be promoting and supporting the event by selling ducks prior to the ‘race’ at our upcoming Presentation Day and Tournament Weekend.
Look out for the inflatable pools where you will get the chance to hook out ducks to produce random numbers which will determine the placings in this year’s race. The Lions will also run a market stall prior to the event where you can buy a duck.
Ducks cost £1 each and as ever, all profits from the race will go into the Southwell Lions Charity Account and will help a worthy local cause.
Please help support this great cause and buy a duck!
