In 2010, Southwell City FC and Southwell United Youth FC amalgamated to become ‘United as City’ and are committed to bringing quality football to the town and surrounding villages.This was recognised by Notts FA, when the club was awarded Community Charter Status in 2011. In 2013 Southwell City FC amalgamated with Southwell St Mary’s FC to form one Club offering football in the Town.
Southwell City is now the third largest football club in Nottinghamshire providing Football to over 400 players in 35 teams aged under 6 to over 50 years of age. Most of our players are local children and people and our philosophy is to offer football and football related activities to the Community of Southwell and the surrounding villages.
Southwell City Seniors
The senior branch has 4 teams. The men’s first team and reserves both play in the Notts Senior League. There is also a veteran team playing matches on Sundays. A men’s Under 21 team is planned for the 2021/22 season.
The club was originally formed in 1893, and re-formed in 1953. They play their football on the picturesque Memorial Ground in the shadow of Southwell Minster. The club has its own clubhouse, with changing facilities, club lounge and bar, and several years ago installed floodlights, allowing them to play midweek games.
Southwell City Juniors
The junior section of the club started life as Southwell United Youth FC in 1971 and by 2000 had grown to have eight teams in various age groups In 2004 we introduced our first girls’ team, the ‘Angels’. Now in 2018 Southwell City offer 17 boys’ teams from U6 – U18 and
and 6 girls’ teams, ranging in age from U9 – U16. Our teams play competitive and non-competitive football in local leagues based in Nottinghamshire. Younger teams play friendly football to encourage development of skills. Younger children play five or seven-a-side format at our Minster Field pitches. Older children play nine or eleven-a-side football,
