We were invited by The FA and PayPal to take part in a video shoot as a case study for The FA’s Matchday app. Back in August we spent the afternoon filming an interview and a training session with our U9 boys group and U12 Blaze Girls to promote our use of the app within the club.
A massive thank you to all 230 kids parents who have got on board and are using the app this season to help manage player availability, pay your fees and ultimately help our coaches spend less time on admin and more time on coaching the children.
As a result of all 17 teams hitting their target of payments through the app, we managed to get over £4200 of free Nike equipment for the club. So new cones, new match balls and new bibs.
Here is the video of our club secretary Simon Hume talking about the benefits that the app has brought to the club.
As you may be aware, the club has been raising money to purchase two defibrillators for us use at our home games in the village, at Dovehouse, and just outside the village at our HRI location.
Through some incredible donations from parents, members of the community and local businesses we were gaining on our first target of £850 to purchase the first one.
We were then contacted by Shoezone, who have a Charitable Trust and wanted to donate enough money to buy a defibrillator out right. So in a little over 2 weeks of fund raising, we’ve almost raised enough money to buy both.
Thanks to Jon Fearn at Shoezone for putting our case forward.
At the time of writing we are £188 shy of our overall target. A massive achievement, so thank you once again from everyone at the club to put as in this position so quickly!
Once this round of fund raising is completed, we’ll turn our attention to hopefully purchasing a lockable box to be placed at Dovehouse, for one of the defibrillators, which means the whole community will have access to be able to use it as well.
Are you interested in sponsoring one of our Wellesbourne Wanderers teams?
Every season we have new teams coming up through the ranks from U8 to U18’s, and often we need new kit, jackets and equipment for these teams.
Some of the types of sponsorship we are always looking for:
Team Kit Sponsorship (Business logo on front of shirt)

If you are want to discuss potential sponsorship of the club, from a team level or for anything else, please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can share the kind of packages we have available.
This season has seen our Girls training sessions growing in size to the point where we are able to start entering teams for the 2019/20 football season in the Warwickshire Girls leagues.
This is huge for the club and something we’d like to keep growing as well.
We currently train on a Thursday evening in Wellesbourne at the Sports & Community Centre between 6 and 7pm in a mixed session of younger and older girls.
We’d probably encourage the really little ones (at the moment) to join our mixed Minis sessions on a Saturday morning, but from girls in Year 3 and above Thursday night is probably a good time to come and have a go.
If you are interested in bringing your child along, we offer 2 free taster sessions to see if it’s for them, then after that is a fee of £20 per term (or £60 for the whole season).
We’d welcome girls from all around the local area to come and join, regardless of ability, we want the girls to come and have some fun, make new friends and enjoy football!
For further information contact us on email@example.com and we hope to see some of you soon!
Please share this post on your various parent Facebook groups, and other social media too.
Player registrations for 2018/19 are now open and we are doing it slightly differently this year.
Rather than filling out a paper form for the club, you can now do this online and pay your fees all at the same time.
If your child is going to be playing for a league registered team in Under 8’s up to Under 17’s then you will be required to pay £100 for the season. If your child is joining Minis, training for the girls or just training with an age group (and not playing league fixtures) then a reduced fee of £60 applies.
