We are pleased to announce that WWFC have selected Surridge Sport as our training & playing kit partner for the next 3 years, with the option to extend our agreement beyond that.
The agreement sees bespoke designs for Boys, Girls, Away and Goalkeeper kits that all teams will benefit from in coming seasons. A wide range of exclusive WWFC branded training clothing, including a specific range for our growing girls’ section, will be offered via a Surridge hosted and managed webstore, with delivery direct to your door.
Surridge Sports are based in Burnley and manufacture and supply kit to professional & semi-pro teams such as Mansfield Town, Solihull Moors and Alvechurch, along with county cricket teams, universities, schools and several grassroots clubs like us.
Both the club and Surridge are committed to a partnership that works for everyone involved in the club as committee members, coaches, volunteers, parents and of course our players. During selection, we were really pleased with the quality and price of the kit and training wear and are sure our players & parents will be delighted when it starts to arrive.
The new webstore will be available by the end of August and all teams needing playing kit for the new season will receive it in time for kick-off on the weekend of the 7th September.
Our Awards Day for the 2018-2019 is fast approaching. Join us at the Cricket Club on Sunday 9th June from 2pm to celebrate the season.
As in previous years, we are once again holding an afternoon of fun, football and awards to celebrate the fantastic footballers of Wellesbourne Wanderers. This year’s awards afternoon promises to be one of the best ever following the growth of the club in recent seasons, with fun activities for the children (and adults!) along with BBQ, Ice-Cream, Cakes, Tombolas and, of course, some football.
The cricket club bar will be open to help you quench your thirst on a (hopefully) sunny June afternoon! We use the awards day as our way of showcasing the club in the community, so if you’re passing and not currently involved with the club, please pop along and see what we’re all about.
All our members will receive their end of season trophy, along with the player of the season awards for each team.
Parents: Please give any donations for the tombola (both alcohol and non alcohol please) to your teams coach by the end of May and bring any cake donations along on the day.
Sunday 5th May saw the start of tournament season for the U11’s, with a team consisting of 5 Falcons and 5 Warriors heading to Hednesford Town’s ground near Cannock to compete in both U11 and U12 tournaments.
Playing at Keyes Park, a 6000 capacity stadium used by their semi-pro first team (who featured in the FA Cup on the BBC a couple of years ago), the boys got to experience what playing in a “proper” stadium felt like – an experience well worth the early start.
As both our U11 teams train together, they lads quickly gelled and produced some great displays of strong defending, good ball work and quick attacks to beat both Hendesford teams and lift the U11 trophy.
The U12 tournament that followed gave them great experience, playing up a year against more physical, powerful players where the boys competed really well and did themselves proud.
A fabulous day out for the start of what will hopefully be a successful tournament season for the boys!
