Where We Play:
Our Club home ground is:
Mini Soccer league matches are played throughout the local area at central venues, you can find these at Burton Junior Football League.Youth teams at Newhall play from a number of ‘Home Ground’ locations locally. All Newhall FC teams use the excellent facilties at our home ground for training during the summer months, during the winter (October-March), training sessions move to Pingle School where we make extensive use of the floodlit artificial pitches.
We provide a full playing kit to all players that are registered with a team including a rain jacket, this does not come cheap as you can imagine and are dependant on sponsors generosity, as such it is the resposibility of the player to ensure their kit is looked after. The soccer school children upon registration get issued with a Newhall FC hooded top to be worn at training sessions. All equipment is available to the coaches for a huge variety of training drills and is maintaned to a very high standard.
Newhall FC Annual Tournement
At Newhall we are very proud of our annual tournament, we have been running our tournament anually since 2000, it is considered by many to be the flagship tournament in the area. Our tournament is for the under 7s right upto under 16s and took place at our home ground Meadow View up until 2016. In 2012 we attracted 145 teams many of whom travelled long distances to take part. We moved our tournament to Woodhouse Recreation Ground in Swadlincote in 2016 to allow our tournamtent to grow further. Despite challenging weather conditions we were able to host over 140 happy teams :)
Club Coaches and Assistants
The health, safety, welfare and moral education of the children we coach remain our first priority, before the achievement or reputation of any coach, or the club. All Newhall F.C. Coaches and Assistants are carefully selected, and coach your children on a voluntary basis. Maintaining a balance between a proper desire to win, and the need to exhibit a high standard of ethical behaviour, presents a challenge to team managers. It is natural that winning is what every coach strives for and our Respect Codes are not intended to restrict that, as doing our best to help our players to win is a perfectly legitimate objective. However the codes call for our coaches to disassociate themselves and our club from a ‘Win-At-All-Cost’ attitude or behaviour.
Newhall F.C. Club Volunteers
Newhall F.C. recognise that developing an effective, skilled and supported workforce within our club will help us to ensure that the club becomes sustainable and remains successful. We acknowledge that providing clear roles and responsibilities that are recognised valued and rewarded by the club and the wider community, is crucial in maintaining their involvement and keeping them motivated. All Newhall F.C. volunteers are carefully selected and supported by the club and undertake an FA enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check.
Club Welfare Officer
We have appointed our own Club Welfare Officer (CWO) who has completed the FA Safeguarding Children and Welfare Officers’ Workshop. Our CWO is the first point of contact for all club members and parents/carers regarding concerns for the welfare of any child or young person. The CWO will liaise directly with the CFA Welfare Officer and will be familiar with the procedures for referring any concerns. They will also play a proactive role in increasing awareness of Respect, poor practice and abuse amongst their club members.
Our Club Welfare Officer can be contacted on our contact us page and will liaise directly with the Derbyshire FA County Welfare Officer when and where necessary.
