Hello to all our players, managers, parents, visitors and friends.

As we embark on a new season of what will hopefully be more highs than lows for all, the Welland Valley FC committee and volunteers have been hard at work behind the scenes, getting ready to help make your season to be as prosperous as possible.

We have been busy over the summer getting in new equipment for everyone. We have purchased brilliant new goalposts, nets, corner flags and various other essentials. With the aim of improving both the setting up and taking down of the pitches and also improving your in game playing experience.

Some of the pitches have been moved and others, although still in the same place have been re-measured, re-marked and upgraded for use with the new goals.

There are a few more events and other improvements coming soon so watch this space.

Please note that Welland Valley FC is now a NO SMOKING club. We would appreciate it if all home and away spectators respect this decision and step away from the sideline if you wish to smoke. Please also note, that this includes E-Cigarettes too. This new policy has been brought in under new FA guidelines to try to improve the playing environment for all. You will also find that many other clubs within your leagues, cups etc will have also adopted this policy. Please understand that If you are found to be smoking at the sideline you may now be asked to leave the venue.

We would like to wish all of our teams the absolute best of luck for the coming season, in all of your respective league, cup and tournament games, but most of all…….HAVE FUN PLAYING THE GAME YOU LOVE.

Yours in football

WVFC Committee
