Selston FC are delighted to confirm that, following a 1-0 win on Saturday 22nd April, they have been crowned champions of the Central Midlands League South Division for the second consecutive season.
The club has been working as hard off the field as on it and we can also confirm that the Parish Hall ground has been passed at grade H level, sufficient for Step 6 on the football pyramid. Alongside this, planning permission for floodlights has been granted and Selston Parish Council have kindly agreed to provide a significant sum towards the cost of the lights, which will secure the match funding needed to progress a bid with the Football Stadia Improvement Fund (FSIF).
The club now awaits confirmation from The FA national league section with regards to promotion and continues to progress the funding work with the FSIF to enable the installation of floodlights.
To add to the biggest few weeks in the club’s history, Nottinghamshire FA has just announced that Selston FC is the winner of this year’s Charter Standard Club award.
Chairman Mark Wilson was full of praise for all those involved in the club’s progress
“I’m so proud to be involved with this club, we have a great band of volunteers to go along with all the players at all age groups. I think we’ve one of the best adult team management set ups at this level; the continued success of the first team must give the youngsters inspiration.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all those that have been a part of the success so far: our managers, players, committee members, volunteers and supporters. I’d also like to thank Selston Parish Council for their support in assisting us in upgrading the ground to make it suitable to progress, we could not have got to where we are without their help, both financial and otherwise.
I hope we have a great season again next year as we approach the 50th anniversary of Selston FC”
