Youngsters enjoy Carvery and Fire Station tripsKinder+Sport Football League Under 13 Girls Cup
The half-time entertainment at our home match against Southend United saw youngsters from Joseph Whitaker School and Meden School go head-to-head in the Football League Under 13 Girls Cup.
The two schools won the right to ‘do battle’ at One Call Stadium this afternoon, as they were the winners in our qualifying competition, which took place in October.
The winner of the half-time showdown will now represent Mansfield Town F.C. in the area finals of the competition, run by the Football League, in Derby in January.
If the girls are successful in the area finals, they will progress to the regional finals – and maybe even to the national final, which will be played at half-time of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium later this season.
October half-term holiday courses
We recently held our popular half-term school holiday courses.
As part of the week’s activities, in partnership with Nottinghamshire Police, we arranged for the Nottinghamshire County Council Cycle Safety team to attend One Call Stadium and put the children through their paces.
Everyone participated in fun lessons about how to cycle safely and also learned about cycle maintenance. Prizes such as bike lights, bike locks and high visibility bags, etcetera, were awarded to youngsters throughout the day.
50/50 penalty shoot-out school fundraiser
Over the past few months, we have visited Skegby Junior Academy, Robin Hood Primary School, Oak Tree Primary School and John T Rice Infant School to deliver our fun-filled coaching sessions and popular penalty shoot-out competition.
Pupils raised some fantastic amounts of money for their schools by taking part, and they were recently visited by Jamie McGuire, Liam Hearn, Sascha Studer and Chris Clements, who awarded prizes to some pupils.
We would like to thank everyone who took part and hope you enjoyed it.
