Netherton FC Latest News 
 
 
 
 
At the end of season presentation night, Netherton legend Owen
 
Baines announced he was retiring from first team duties. Owen has
 
been a key part of the club for many years, representing as a player,
 
assistant manager and physio and much much more. We wish Owen
 
all the best and hope to still see him watching next season.
 
 
 
First team manager Alan Wadsworth resigned from the club in the
 
week after the presentation night. Again, the club would like to put
 
on record their thanks to Waddy for his efforts over the last six
 
seasons.
 
 
Once the management structure for the three teams has been
 
decided, this will be updated on the website and communicated to
 
players at training which we expect to start in July.
 
 
We are hoping to run three teams again in the 2014-2015 season
 
with the first and second teams playing at Lightenfield Lane (Top
 
Rec) and the thirds at Dryclough Rec (To Be Confirmed). We will
 
also be looking to get players representatives on the club committee.
 
Details of the committee meetings will be made available to players
 
via the website.
 
 
We are pleased to announce that MB Services have agreed to
 
sponsor the club next season. The club needs to raise funds to pay
 
for kit, pitches, insurance, nets, balls, flags, training, food etc so a
 
£10 signing on fee will be applicable to all players this season.
 
Subs will be charged at £6 a game (£3 for students / substitutes).
 
 
Any player owing money to the club for more than two consecutive
 
Saturdays will receive a club ban until the monies owed are paid, with
 
no mitigating or special cases.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
NETHERTON RESERVES WIN RICHARDSON CUP!
 
 
 
 
Netherton 2nd team pulled off a stunning 2-0 victory over Berry Brow
 
in the Richardson Cup Final held at Lepton Highlanders, making
 
amends for the heavy league defeat a week earlier by the same
 
rivals. Netherton were by far the more positive team in a tense first
 
half, and the game sprung to life minutes before half time when Dan
 
Rodgers latched onto Elliot Wilkinsons fine through ball to coolly slot
 
home. Minutes later Ryan O'Connor made it two capitalising on a
 
defensive slip to fire home to send the travelling support wild.
 
 
 
The seconds were solid throughout the second half with Jon Sewell
 
and Josh Harling solid at the heart of defence and five time cup
 
winning keeper Adam Robertshaw was largely untroubled. Abbas
 
Hussain worked hard in midfield and was helped out by the
 
dangerous wingers Paolo Margaglione and Joel Nelson who gave
 
the Berry Brow defence the runaround. With the clock running down
 
manager Neil Wood sent on the pacy Mikey Thomas to capitalise
 
on the tiring Brow defence and Dean Midwood to help out the back
 
four, however he was sent off in the dying moments after reacting
 
to a brutal assault by the Brow captain.
