Easter Raffle

Junior Update - Co-Ordinated by Nigel Hudson, Junior Development Manager
 
Under 9s (James Furness)
The Under 9s are doing really well in training and matches. I have a squad of 10 players and due to the limited number of U9 girls teams in the county we are struggling to find matches every week.
It’s frustrating but can't be helped and overall I am happy with the group and their attitude to training 
 
Under 10s (Kelly McCoy & Kelly Johnson)
The Under 10's have sadly lost their position in the League Cup and the NG&LL Plate competition but not without putting on a great show of strength and determination. The team have progressed and developed very well during the season so far, with encouraging comments from opposition managers and supporters. We truly believe the team will continue with this positive vein in their future fixtures and are especially excited about their first game against Derby County this weekend!
 
Under 11s (Amanda Thorley)
The first half of this season has proved how well the girls have developed in their attitude towards the game and as a team. Their games are fluid with a lot of strategic play. We have faced some very strong opposition who have given us some firm challenges, testing the physical, technical and mental ability of the girls. We are through to the Semi Finals of both the League Cup and NG&LL Plate competition and in the League have won 14 of our 16 games so far this season.

 

Parking Notice

Polite Reminder / Request:

Dear All,

It has recently come to our attention that when unable to park within the ground at Basford Unitd FC that people have been parking on the surrounding area around the ground which is not an issue    however it appears that in some cases some local residents have either been unable to park or  drive onto their own drive we have received complaints on more than one occasion in recent  weeks.

Can we please ask that if parking in the surrounding area that you ensure that you are not blocking  any driveways and that enough room is left for cars to get on and off of the road. Many thanks for  your support in this matter. 

 

 

 

 

A Message from the Operations Manager—Steve Gray

 

#Pride #Passion #Belief - this is the clubs mantra and while watching the recent games I have seen these characteristics in every single player, manager, coach, volunteer and fan on and off the pitch.

 

That aside it takes a lot of effort to get onto the grass every Sunday with lots of painstaking effort from the management, coaches, players, committee and volunteers to ensure that every game goes ahead and provides a safe and friendly atmosphere.


I work behind the scenes and sometimes in front of the scenes as the Club Operations Manager and that role involves a little bit of everything but most important to me is ensuring that everybody involved with the club whether that’s a colleague on the committee, a manager, a player, a coach, a physio, a volunteer all get the support that they require come match day.

 

This season is best described as trial and error, however at this club we have some huge HEARTS with everyone striving to be the best that they can be and I have the belief that this club will stay up this season but not without heart-stopping moments along the way.

 

I am especially proud of the club being able to put together a strong portfolio of senior and junior player sponsors with 40+ sponsors from all walks of life whether that's businesses, family, friends, fans or just someone kind enough to sponsor. Its a really good position to be in and one that I am working on with the hopes that it continues into next season as we look to enhance our sponsorship offerings and improve on the sponsorship experiences for all sponsors.

A message from the Chairperson - P.J Andrews

“No Pain, No Gain”

Sometimes you have to go through hard times to appreciate even more the good times that will eventually come your way.

There is no denying that the shock exit of the 1st Team out of the County Cup a few weeks ago gave a painful insight into our status. However, that and a recent exit from the League cup has actually helped galvanise our focus from all areas of the club. Our focus is now purely that of climbing the FAWPL North table. No distractions.

Its no shame to admit that Pride hurts sometimes, in fact—it’s a part of life. But its how you react to situations that show the depth of character. What I see around NFLFC is character in abundance. A spirit of fight and of focus and cause.

We have not taken our knocks lightly and we have met as a club and individual squads to re-group, assess and plan. As a result we have positively invested in consolidating and adding to our resources and spirit. Sometimes you can be so prepared, and still fail. And every time you fail, it’s painful, it actually causes sadness and of course it causes disappointment. I’ve often said that character is not judged after we celebrate a victory, but by what we do when our back is against the wall. So no matter how great the setback, how severe the failure, NFLFC should never give up.

The efforts have always been there but the desire and a new resurgence in commitment is the Forest Ladies we have come to know, appreciate and love since 1990/1991. The senior players from both squads are informed, on side and developing. That’s down to them as a unit but also to the ethic and moral strands that are being re-iterated by the Senior Coaches and Management teams. They are giving their all and its paying off with improved team performances and improved training commitment. Its going to continue to pay off and they will have their reward at the season end. No pain, no gain they say—and that sums up our transparency.
