Long Distance Fan

Yesterday a Salisbury FC supporter from Sydney, Australia paid his first visit to the ground.  Sadly the new season doesn’t start until 13 July!!  Didn’t stop him buying a scarf, shirt, polo shirt, bag, shorts, hoodie and 4 bottles of SFC wine!!  It was great to meet him and his family and let them have a look around the Ray Mac. The guided tour by Business Manager, Jim Ayres will no doubt be a treasured memory.  We hope they enjoy the rest of their UK trip and have a safe return journey. #internationalfanbase

Another valuable contribution to the Club

At the SFC Supporters' Club AGM held at the Club last night Director Jeremy Harwood was presented with a cheque for £3000 by SFCSC Chairman Gordon Plumb.

This latest donation, following those totalling £10500 last season, is the result of their many fundraising efforts for the Club and local Charities. 

The membership fee for the coming season remains unaltered at £5.00, and supporters can renew at the first home league game when application forms will be available, and therefore enjoy the benefits of reduced travel costs and the various discount schemes in place.

U18 South West Counties Youth League & U16 JPL trials

Salisbury FC Under 16’s and U18’s are looking to recruit for the up and coming season. 

If you’re an U16, U17, or U18 for the coming season, and have played at a reasonable standard, then we would like to hear from you. 

Simon Oldrid's U16’s rounded off the last season as champions in the 'City of Southampton Youth League'. Next season, an altogether different challenge lies ahead for the squad. They are now progressing to the 'South West Counties Youth League’ for the next two seasons. The SWCYL is the highest level outside of the academy system for U18 footballers in the South West. Salisbury U18’s have competed in this league for the last 4 seasons, and it has proven to be a great development pathway for players to challenge themselves, and play against quality sides every week. 

Opposition in the SWCYL this season include the likes of Bath City, Bristol Academy, Cirencester Town, Worcester City and Wimborne Town to name a few. The side will also compete in the FA Youth Cup and will play those games out of the Ray Mac Stadium, home of Salisbury FC.  

The 18/19 season U16’s compete in the Junior premier league (JPL). Last season through the seeding, the side won through to the ‘elite league and cup’. We will be looking to build on that achievement this coming season. The JPL and the SWCYL are both Saturday morning football. 

Salisbury FC offers a clear pathway for aspiring young players with many of our 18’s also having been selected into our U23 development squad over the last few years. With the U16’s we will be looking to progress these players into U18 or U23 once they are old enough, and ready. This has resulted in a number of players making their 1st team debuts as well. No more so than Josh Sommerton who went on to make 10 appearances for Salisbury FC's 1st team in the 'Evostik Southern League South & West' last season at the age of just 17. 

If you would like a trial for the Whites U16’s or U18’s, whether you’re a 1st or 2nd year for the latter, then get in touch to book a spot at our upcoming trials. 

U18 Trials will be on 26th June in Salisbury at the Netherhampton pitches at the rear of Salisbury livestock market.

Salisbury FC Golf Day

The first ever Golf Day for the re-formed Salisbury Football Club was a great success, and took place recently at the High Post Golf Club. The event was organized by Alan Green, a prolific goalscorer for Salisbury in his heyday and now the Club’s Commercial Manager.

Taking part, alongside guests from many different businesses, were Barry Cranmer, another past fans’ favourite, and the competition was fierce, especially between the old and new guard as the younger breed Brandon Mundy, Lewis Benson and Charlie Searle rose to the stiff challenge.

Local businesses kindly sponsored a hole each and thanks are due to the Steve Claridge Football Foundation, Value Cars, SGS, LED Synergy, Fletcher & Partners, Sonic Scaffolding, Cara Glass, Mikina Engineering and Downton Brewery.

A contribution from proceeds is being sent to the Pembroke Unit at Salisbury Hospital.

10 handicap golfer Matt Knellar scooped the main individual prize, and was part of the winning team (pictured). The prizes for “Nearest the pin” went to Alan Pollard, and Steve Searle, keeper Charlie’s father, won the longest drive accolade.

 From what I saw, it appeared that organizer Green found it more difficult to aim the little white ball than the larger leather one with which he made his name - Tiger Woods won’t be biting his nails!
