Under 19 Sevens, Saturday 17th September 2016

On a typically bright sunny day for this season opener, Monkseaton HS retained their U19 Sevens trophy in a competition supported by Newcastle Rotary.

After the group stages, quarter-finals were contested that saw Monkseaton, Heaton Manor, RGS and a County Select team enter the semi-finals.

Heaton Manor excelled themselves to beat the County Select while Monkseaton saw off the RGS.

An entertaining final was won by Monkseaton by 13 match points (3 goals + 1 corner) to 8 points (2 goals).

UNDER 16 Boys' TEAM MANAGER, 2016-17

We are delighted to announce that Andy Blight (Northumberland Church of England Academy) will be our U16 boys' team manager next season (2016-17). 
Andy has had two successful years as ESFA national U18 team manager and now returns to use that experience with our local county team.
He will supported by Lee Savory and Roch Karaa.


Northumberland Schools' FA and Northumberland FA are pleased to announce a new partnership that will see NFA employee Andrew Smith working part-time as an Administrator for NSFA. 

Both associations see this as a mutually beneficial arrangement as they seek to work together for the development of youth football in the county.

John Ackerley, recently appointed CEO of NFA said,"I see this as an exciting opportunity for the two Associations to work even more closely together".

Neil Pont, Secretary of NSFA, said," Not only will this appointment secure even better relationships between our two Associations, but it will also allow long-serving volunteers to take a more strategic and advisory role within the school association.  It is a clear 'win win'"

RIP - Ray Smith

It is with sadness that we have to report the passing of Ray Smith.

Ray was involved with South Northumberland SFA for many years as team manager, Secretary and Chairman.

He served on the Executive Committee of NSFA with distinction.  He was Secretary of NSFA from 2000-2004 and Chairman, 2009-11.  Latterly he continued his involvement as a County Cup organiser.  His smile, ready wit and sensible counsel will be sadly missed.
