Guy Ferguson has very kindly agreed to team manage the U17 this season as Niell Gregg is not able to do so this season. I would like to thank him for all his hard work last season
Please note that this is a team-selected event and all teams will be selected 2 weeks prior the event. It is vital that you inform your team manager as soon as possible if you are unable to compete to allow a replacement to be selected.
Club vests will be required and they can be purchased from the canteen or myself at a cost of £16.00 (XS) and £17.50 all other sizes. I only have a small stock, on sale on the day but can get correct size if I know before hand.
All U17’s the YAL needs to be your main priority followed by the National Junior League. The first YAL fixture is the day after the Midland Senior league and so therefore the YAL needs to take priority.
There are coaches provided for those of you who would like to use them for a small charge, it was £6 per person last year, I will confirm prices for this season before the start of the season, officials go free, so come on all you parents we are always in need of extra officials and there is usually a free lunch and hot drinks. For more information about officials or coaching courses and how you can help out at Notts AC please feel free to contact James Hayden, the club office, or myself. We are always on the look out for volunteers, REMEMBER – FOR YOUR CHILD TO COMPETE OFFICALS ARE NEEDED, PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE IT TO SOMEONE ELSE!!!
Any problems please feel free to contact me and I look forward to hearing from you very soon.
Yours in sport
