New Commercial Director Appointment

We are delighted to announce that Mehmet Mimoglu has agreed to become the Saints new Commercial Director.

Mehmet has over 20 years worth of experience being involved in non-league football and comes to us highly recommended.

 

St Neots Town FC Director - Louise Sales, commented...

" I'm delighted that Mehmet has agreed to join us as our Commercial Director.  Having had a number of Zoom and one to one conversations it became clear very quickly that Mehmet will become a fantastic addition to the club.  The position of Commercial Director is quite possibly the most difficult role to take on, as such the board see this appointment as a long term project which over time will evolve as the club continues to build and grow organically.  The last few months have been tough for us all however the club has continued to look at ways that we can improve, refurbish and renew all areas of the business. Welcome aboard Mehmet"

 

New St Neots Town FC Commercial Director - Mehmet Mimoglu, added...

"I am absolutely delighted to be appointed as the Commercial Director of St Neots Town FC.I am looking forward to meeting everyone involved in the Club and to start working on planning for the Commercial activities of our 2020/21 campaign.

Commercial income is key to any Football Clubs sustainability and achieving good Commercial income always requires hard work. The current COVID-19 situation has brought its challenges to businesses up and down the country. However, I am starting my role very positively and instead of thinking this will be very hard; my mind is set on looking at where the commercial opportunities are. There are many companies out there who have seen their business grow and are still successful despite the Covid-19 situation.

I think St Neots Town FC is a unique club, we have fantastic facilities and so much is currently done for the local community. The Club being so much embedded with the local community, I feel that the key will be to be active, go out and meet local businessmen and women and build on the existing relationships to discuss sponsorship opportunities. I will actively contact and speak to the local businessmen with an innovative approach to establish business relationships and establish ways as to how our relationship can add value to their business.

Strengthened by our Cambridge United partnership, the Club has big ambitions for the future. I totally share this passion and enthusiasm. I will try my best to make a positive difference and contribution for the future aspirations of the Club."

 

Please join us in welcoming Mehmet to the Club and we hope this will mark the beginning of a commercially successful period.

Well now you can......

Closing date for applications is Sunday 12th July

 

The playing shirts will be available to purchase in due course, price to be confirmed.

This is going to be a really difficult time for us all. As a community football club, we will continue to look at ways we can help while at the same time be mindful of the Government guidelines and how these can be interpreted. We will take advice from the schools we partner as well as the FA to ensure that the support we offer is best practice. 

As a business that does not manufacture or retail, we are very much at risk if we do not manage the situation correctly.  Already, we have lost all football matches, function bookings and facility hire throughout March and most of April which equates to no or very little income. Like every other family or business, we have bills to pay regardless of whether we have the income to do so. The situation may change for better or for worse over the next 6 weeks, we just don't know which is the very real worry. 

Putting all of our worries to one side, the club will remain committed (while we are able to) to helping where we can. Whether this is using the club's facilities or making the most of our coaching staff remains to be seen but we will try our best within the boundaries that the Government has set.

St Neots Town FC

THURLOW NUNN YOUTH LEAGUE

ST NEOTS TOWN U18        2       ST IVES TOWN     1 

Second and third in the league table prior to this match the reward for the winners would be a berth at the top of the table, and after a feisty encounter it was St Neots who prevailed.   It was a game scarred by a 43rd minute injury to Tom Wakeley which resulted in a 50 minutes suspension of the match whilst an ambulance arrived to transport the unlucky youngster to the hospital.   At the point of the injury the match had boiled up into a competitive contest but after the restart the enthusiasm seemed to have dispersed and the second half saw a visiting side reduced to ten men defend well but unable to seriously challenge St Neots’ narrow advantage.

 

There was a quiet start with neither side seriously testing the opposition goalkeeper in the opening twenty minutes.   Then Kai Hope tested Dylan Martin at one end and Brad Brown burst through to shoot over at the other.   Leading the home attack Brad Matzk looked lively and was only denied the opening goal by a too narrow angle after he had left defenders in his wake.   Then after 29 minutes a deep cross from Jake Wood picked out the head of Marley Edwards and he gave St Neots the lead.   However, within sixty seconds the visitors had responded positively as Tom Wakely was left unmarked and he levelled the scores from close range.   Visiting keeper Kai Bradley produced the save of the match to deny Jake Wood after 34 minutes but two minutes later the home side struck what was to prove the decisive goal as St Ives defender Ewan Young was caught in possession and Brad Matzk advanced on goal to reinstate the lead.   Three minutes before half time the injury saw the temporary suspension of the game.

 

Upon the restart the visitors gave the impression of trying to take revenge for the injury with Faris Rhaman booked and after 51 minutes the game exploded with a fracas in the St Neots penalty area resulting in a red card for Ewan Young and bookings for Matzk (St Neots) and Karl Frans and Kai Hope (St Ives).   When peace was restored St Neots had much of the possession with their one-man advantage, but they created little although Bradley saved well from Brown and Max Smalley.   St Ives best chance of a share of the points came midway through the second half when Ben Smith broke clear but was foiled by an important save by Dylan Martin.

 

St Neots:  Martin, Olive, Wood, O’Hara, Howell, Byrne, Smalley, Clark, Matzk, Brown, Edwards

Sub used:   Nshangalume.

Cards: Byrne (Y – 42 mins), Matzk (Y – 51 mins), Edwards (Y – 83 mins)

Referee:  Nicholas Easey

UPCOMING MATCH PREVIEW

On Saturday near neighbours Biggleswade FC visit the Premier Plus Stadium for a rearranged league match.  

The rise of Biggleswade FC to Step Four has been meteoric because just four seasons ago the club (along with several existing players) were a very successful U18 side plying their trade in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League. One of three clubs based in Biggleswade, our visitors are competing for local talent with Biggleswade Town (Step Three) who are their present landlords, and Biggleswade United (Step Five). Currently 13th in the league table, they have won as many games as they have lost so far, and after years of non-stop success they will be delighted to be competing at this level – the highest ever in their embryonic history.

Earlier this season our first meeting at Biggleswade resulted in a very competitive 0-0 draw and since then they have grown in confidence and are enjoying their first experience of Southern League football.

UPCOMING MATCH PREVIEW

After the very impressive performance at the Premier Plus Stadium last Saturday which saw St Neots thrash their struggling visitors Wantage Town by five goals to nil, thanks in part to Alan Musoke’s first hat trick for the side, it is now a priority to maintain the confidence that the team displayed in that victory.   This weekend’s match sees a third trip this season to Oxfordshire to face Kidlington who are currently six points and three places ahead of the Saints in the league table.   That margin is because last Saturday Kidlington recorded only their second league victory in their last twelve league and cup outings.   They beat Coleshill 3-1 away from home to register their first away victory this season.   Despite their poor form, at home Kidlington boast a decent league record with only one defeat in six outings and that was to Daventry Town.

Kidlington are now in their third season at Step Four having finished 18th in the table three points above relegation last season but having finished 12th in their first season.   This will of course be the first meeting of the two sides and St Neots should be almost at full strength with Jonny Butler having served his one match suspension.
