Nottinghamshire Community Club 2003 & 2004

THE FOLLOWING ARE SUCCESSFUL NOMINATION FORMS FOR COMMUNITY CLUB OF THE YEAR FOR 2003 AND 2004.

AWARDS NOMINATION FORM 2003

Category: Community Club

Name of Nominee: Calverton Miners Welfare Football Club

Name of Club: Calverton Miners Welfare Football Club

County FA : Nottinghamshire

Reason for Nomination:

I would like to nominate Calverton Miners Welfare FC as the Community Club for 2004.

CMWFC attained this award in December 2002 after successfully fulfilling all the necessary criteria for this status to become one of the first 84 clubs in the country.

Such is the success of our club that year on year we attract new teams as more youngsters within the local community find an enjoyable, healthy pastime conducted in a safe environment.

We have utilised this award to the full and our enthusiast workforce have dug deep and worked hard to raise funds to provide a basis for the fantastic facilities which we are now able to boast. For the first time in many years the village now have a girls section with currently in excess of 30 girls playing football on a regular basis.

The club, together with its enthusiastic coaches and helpers have, over the year, provided numerous people to support FA initiated courses and have at times acted as host.

These have included Level 1 courses, referee courses, MACA courses and we hosted a disadvantaged football tournament in conjunction with ‘Rethink’.

In addition to organised football we provide access to the five a side all weather court for recreational football for people of all ages.

In August our volunteers are to pilot and run a Healthy Lifestyle course aimed at schoolchildren aged between 8 and 12. Although linked to football, this builds on Government guidelines and initiatives to combat childhood obesity.

This, together with other initiatives demonstrates that we are truly a community club – and not just another football club.
