Have your say

Virtually all of Pointon FC’s junior teams are flying high as the club looks to expand.

A few years ago some like minded dedicated parents started on a path with the aim of creating a friendly, family-based ethos at Pointon FC.

With dedicated volunteers and coaches, player numbers have increased dramatically and the teams currently playing in the Mid Lincolnshire and Grantham Youth Leagues include an under-11s, under-14s, under-15s, and two under-16s, as well as a Lincs Intermediate League under-18s team. Currently, all but the under-18s are top of their respective leagues.

Last season, Pointon FC forged links with primary schools in the county by hosting a schools tournament which was a great success and raised funds for St Gilbert’s School. Another tournament is planned for May this year.

Already looking to next season, Pointon intend to create two new teams in the under-7 and under-10 age categories.

Any boys or girls interested in playing, or parents interested in coaching or managing, should contact Elliot Newman on 07514 944964. Elliot can also be contacted if you are interested in sponsorship of the successful FA Charter Standard-qualified club.

On behalf of Pointon juniors, Elliot thanked all the boys for their efforts so far this season, the parents for their commitment, the groundsmen for their untiring efforts despite the dreadful weather, and the committee and coaches “without whom the club would not exist and continue to evolve”.
