NCEL Season Curtailed

It is hard to believe that in 2 years we will not have completed a league season, but it is also not unexpected that the FA have tonight confirmed that Steps 3 to 6 will be curtailed. We await further updates from the FA Council. I am sure people will be disappointed that no further NCEL games will be played pending ratification from the FA Council, but many of us will be not be surprised following the impact of Covid-19. Football is a massive part of many peoples lives, but the wider impact on businesses and families who have lost loved ones brings things into context, and ultimately it is the right decision. I am sure many people will both agree and

Fudge “sweet” on new signings

It has been a busy few days since our game away at Retford FC and I would like to welcome Mike Jepps and Owen Fieldsend to the club. Mike has been playing in the Senior Nottinghamshire Premier League for Bingham Town FC and has an impressive goalscoring record. Whatever the level, if someone knows how to put the ball in the back of the net you have to take notice, and his stats for the last few seasons shows he know how to hit the net. Although he has never played at this level, Mike is experienced and an all round athlete and someone we looking forward to seeing in the red shirt soon. Owen is another experienced player who has had

Club Statement – 30/12/2020

I am sure that by now you will be aware that today our NCEL season was suspended and will be reviewed again on the 13 January 2021. We, along with many other clubs are frustrated by a further suspension but we understand the leagues decision. They are damned if they do and damned if they don't and we just have to appreciate how difficult it is for everyone connected with Grassroots football at this present time. At a high level we want to make sure everyone is aware that our club will survive this, however we wouldn’t have done so if it had not been for everyone’s support, our sponsors and the fantastic efforts of our fans. We appreciate the efforts
