ABOUT US

CALVERTON MINERS' WELFARE FC

 

The history of the football club and football in Calverton has now been transferred to the History section accessible from the menu bar above.

Since 2002 we have been working towards fulfilling our 5 Year Development Plan which has seen us become one of the first 84 clubs in the country to achieve FA Charter Standard Community Club accreditation. On the back of this we have been able to successfully apply for substantial funding from the Football Foundation and other partnership backers to enable us to turn what we already believed to be superb facilities into some of the best in the county. We will now have four superb perfectly level full sized pitches – one of which is floodlit, two perfectly level mini-soccer pitches, a dedicated grassed training area, 8 brand new self contained modular changing rooms, our established all weather floodlit training area, not to mention the Club itself for the social side of things.

Further initiatives are underway in conjunction with the Welfare Trustees and Directors built around nutrition, well-being, healthy lifestyles with football and coaching being the ‘transport mechanism’. Hopefully, in union with other Welfare sub-sections, the wider community and other partnerships we hope to expand the club’s premises to incorporate a dedicated training/conference room.

Further development around the new pitches will be pursued, notably hard standing spectator areas, spectator shelter, dug-outs, pitch-side barriers etc.

It is imperative as a club, if we want to progress further, that we retain and build on our FA Charter Standard Community Club status.

We have an excellent record so far having won the County Charter Standard Community Club Award in both 2003 and 2004.

We were also the first football club in the 13 years of the Award to receive the prestigious Nottinghamshire Amateur Sports Club of the Year in 2004 from a total of 2200 county clubs.

In 2005 we won the National FA Charter Standard Community Club Award.

See the links for more details on these to the left.

Over the last 6 years the Colts have grown in size from 4 to 18 teams. A structure is now in place whereby boys as young as 5 and 6 are joining the nursery and as such we cannot stand still. These players are the future of the club. The vision was that girls would also join the club in a similar way. This hasn’t happened and we need to promote girls football further.

As a recognised provider of sporting opportunities we now have an obligation under the Disability Discrimination Act 2004 to encourage and provide for those with disabilities. We are actively looking to receive the necessary training and awareness to enable us to do this.

We no longer want to be a feeder club for other teams but want to give our youngsters good quality senior teams to aim at, or at least an ‘exit’ route in which to move into senior football. As a senior team we were invited into the prestigious new Nottinghamshire Senior League which began last season and we fielded both a senior and reserve team. This was seen as another mark of progress and for the first time last season we fielded a 3rd or ‘A’ team in the Midland Amateur Alliance.

Also for the first time we fielded an Under 19 team into an extremely competitive Northern Under 19 Alliance where we faced strong Academy and semi-professional club teams. Although the Under 19 team was dis-continued this season it will be re-introduced for next. We feel that we now have the teams for the younger players to aim towards.

A significant change has been noticed, certainly over the last couple of seasons with players from outside the village wanting to join us.

We aim to improve our standards both on and off the pitch but to do this we must continue to make the improvements and take initiatives that we’ve seen over the last few seasons. The club is already moving in the right direction – we see it as our role to keep the momentum going.

This is the record of the senior team over the last few seasons. If anyone can help with the continuation of building up a proper history or any old photos please get in touch. There must be many old photos in peoples attics or at back of drawers or cupboards!
