Wildcats Sessions will continue during the Schools Break, and we will be offering a summer discount if you pay for all 6 weeks in advance at the Friday 27th July session.

While sessions will continue to be causal and you are free to turn up and join in, we are offering the opportunity attend the 6 week summer block for only £10.00 if paid upfront - this represents a £8 saving if you attend all 6 sessions (almost half price) but also makes financial sense if you can only make 4!

 

Activities will continue on the brand new Artificial Grass Pitch at St Neots Town FC, PE19 6SL with sessions taking place as normal 5:00 - 6:00 PM every Friday.

 

The Wildcats project is an integral part of The FA’s objective to double girls’ football participation by 2020 and has been established in a joint partnership between The FA and SSE, supporters of girls’ football participation and sponsor of the SSE Women’s FA Cup

The St Neots Town FC SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Club will take place:

Once this is complete you will be contacted confirming your place!

“Girls of all abilities are welcome”

Our aim will be that this opportunity will be open to a diverse range of girls, from those just starting out to others who may play in a team – by holding our sessions on a Friday we hope not to interfere with any club training sessions and won’t be looking as this as an alternative for those involved in grassroots football already.

Sessions will be based around the needs of young players and will focus on FUN, FRIENDS and FOOTBALL!

Our hope is that by providing accessible football, we are able to help girls be keen to play in the future in an environment suited to them.

“Girls & Women’s Football is key to ensuring we are able to provide for all looking to play in St Neots, our outstanding facilities and infrastructure give us an excellent base to do that” – Tim Sergeant (Operations Manager)

John Stewart, SSE’s Director of Human Resources, said: “We’re delighted to support The FA in setting up these centres, helping to deliver high quality coaching sessions across the country to the next generation of female footballers.”

“At SSE we are extremely proud to be a fundamental part of supporting the grassroots game. This is a key reason for our sponsorship of the SSE Women’s FA Cup, not only are we focussed on achieving greater awareness of the sport at an elite level, equally as important we are creating more opportunities and relentlessly encouraging more girls to get involved in football.”

Mark Frost County Secretary, said: ‘’Huntingdonshire FA are very proud to be a part of supporting the SSE Wildcats Girls’ Football Club programme. Our Clubs are creating more opportunities for girls to get involved in football and a great way of having fun and keeping fit with friends.”

The Club are excited to announce that at training this morning, LEWIS IRWIN has signed for the club.

No stranger to Saints fans after a very successful youth loan spell here last season from Northampton Town, LEWIS has returned to the Premier Plus Stadium to sign on for the Saints after his summer release from the Cobblers. Whilst here last season,  LEWIS made 12 full appearances and 3 substitute appearances, scoring 7 times in the process, a great return for the eighteen year old, before a hamstring injury cut short his stay.

Manager Matt Clements added "We are delighted to bring Lewis back here, he is a fantastic talent and also a great character. He will add power, pace and quality to our already talented attacking options we have available here"


Please join us in welcoming Lewis back to the Club and we wish him every success in his time with us in what we hope will be a fruitful and enjoyable period in his career. 

     

 

OPEN AIR CINEMA EVENT "THE GREATEST SHOWMAN" JULY 21ST 2018
STATEMENT FROM ST NEOTS TOWN CHAIRMAN & BOARD.

 

It is with regret and disappointment that we are having to cancel the Open Air Cinema screening of "The Greatest Showman" at the Premier Plus Stadium on Saturday 21st of July. Also we wanted to be honest and transparent about why this has happened.

As an ambitious football club with some outstanding facilities we have an entertainments licence that covers us for a wide range of events, both indoor and outdoor. These include music, sport and indoor film. However it was brought to our attention last Thursday that we might need an additional TENS licence specifically for outdoor film, and as a football club with a very extensive licence we were unaware of this.

So last Friday morning (13th July) we approached Hunts DC for advice, they said they would check and call us back. Late on Friday afternoon after chasing them we received a call explaining we needed to apply online, which we did first thing on Monday morning only to be informed that we needed to give 5 working days notice and that unfortunately the Monday or the Saturday of the event could not be included as full working days.

We subsequently enlisted the support of St Neots Town Council but despite our joint appeals we have been unable to overturn the decision.

We are gutted and disappointed, especially for the 177 people who had brought advance tickets. However we will be offering them a full refund and providing a free drinks voucher each for a future event. It is the very least we can do in the circumstances.

Also, with the support of our partners Enchanted Cinema, we have moved quickly to secure a new screening date that will be covered by a TENS which is Sunday 12th August 2018 and have also added a further screening of another film in to be announced in September.

We chose the 21st of July because for many families locally it represents the first weekend of the summer holidays and we thought it would be a great way to celebrate that fact.

As a new board of directors we are not only committed to pushing the club forward on the pitch but also to utilise the fantastic facilities at the Premier Plus stadium to benefit the local community, the town of St Neots and the surrounding area. We want to welcome to the club as many people as possible, and as often as possible. And to make it a family friendly event space for as wider range of activities.

We are committed to being a sustainable community based football club, which is why in the last two weeks we have entertained four football league clubs here and every child who attended was admitted FREE. And this will be the case for ALL our League fixtures this season when accompanied by an adult.

The Open Air Cinema was to be the first in a number of major events at the Premier Plus Stadium to attract an audience beyond our supporters and the regions football fans, and despite this setback we are committed to that vision going forward. St Neots is a growing town and St Neots Town FC want to play a big part in that growth and ambition.

As a board of directors we want to apologise again. We feel we might have been a little naïve with regards our licencing position but intend to learn from any mistakes and move on.

We hope as many of you as possible will attend the rescheduled event on the 12th August, and we also hope to see you at future events and supporting our talented young football team led by Manager Matt Clements this season.

 

Barry Cavilla,

(Chairman) and the board of St Neots Town FC

PRE-SEASON FRIENDLY

ST NEOTS TOWN        0         STEVENAGE     3

The stats will show a fourth consecutive defeat against Football League opposition so far, but results are really not important as Manager Matt Clements beds in his latest recruits and plans for the new season.   The difference between the sides on the night was hardly visible because the first goal came from a penalty kick and the other two from a temporary lapse of concentration by the home side.   Clements must be pleased with the overall performance and with three further pre-season friendlies to come there is still time to hone the revised squad.

The first goal came early – in the fifth minute – in the first real attack by either side.   The speedy Andronicos Georgiou burst into the area to be caught by a defender whose challenge was marginally late and Alex Revell tucked away the resultant penalty kick.   St Neots replied creating a number of good openings in the next ten minutes and were unlucky not to draw level as a result.   Dion Sembie-Ferris sent Claudio Ofosu away on the left and his fierce shot beat the visiting keeper but also cleared the crossbar and then skipper Luke Knight picked up a loose clearance and drilled a shot into the perfectly positioned goalkeeper.   Another smooth move set up Scott Sinclair, but his shot passed the wrong side of a post.   The first half then settled into an entertaining contest with end to end football producing few clear chances although home keeper Dan Swan did produce one excellent save to deny Georgiou and second goal.

Wholesale team changes after the break by both sides saw the tempo slow and there was a sort of stalemate until on the hour St Neots seemed to lose concentration and conceded two rather soft goals.   The first saw a long forward pass by Scott Cuthbert find a misunderstanding between Swan and his defenders leaving the keeper stranded on the edge of his area and Alex Revell took full advantage to find the empty net and three minutes later from a corner one of the Stevenage trialists came late and unmarked into the area to head home unchallenged.   That lapse seemed to inspire St Neots to rediscover their earlier poise and confidence and they competed well until they began to tire in the final ten minutes.   Sembie-Ferris was denied a deserved consolation goal after 70 minutes by the save of the match from the visiting keeper.  

The next test is an away trip to Haverhill Rovers next Tuesday (24th July).

 

St Neots Town: Swan, Miles, Herd, Knight, Wood, Parr, Sinclair, O’Malley, Sembie-Ferris, Williams, Ofosu.

Subs used: Peters, Alban, Shaw, Keeble, Mutswumbuma.

Stevenage: (squad) Cuthbert, Hunt, Sonupe, Byrom, Timlin. Georgiou, Revell, Vancooten, Wilkinson, Fraser, Iontton, McKee, White, Draper plus eight trialists.

They will face local rivals, Eynesbury Rovers Reserves and Eaton Socon 1st team which offer some 'old fashioned derby days'.

Saturday saw St Neots Town entertain League One outfit Peterborough United in the latest of their pre season matches and gave another very good account of themselves with the full time Posh side having to wait until the second half to break the deadlock.

On a sultry day at the Premier Plus Stadium, Steve Evans brought his full squad along, opting to give every available player minutes, they played a different eleven in each half and  he witnessed his side dominate for long periods in the first half but thanks to goalkeeper Dan Swan, the first half XI were left frustrated with new signing from Nottingham Forest, Scottish international Jason Cummings, twice being denied by the young shot-stopper.

Cummings saw a close-range effort well saved by Swan who also kept out Siriki Dembele’s fierce effort from distance. Jason Naismith saw a powerful header go over the top after a patient Posh move while Mark O’Hara also went close after racing onto a clever pass from the lively Dembele.

Midway through the first half, central defender Ryan Tafazolli came the closest to breaking the deadlock, his powerful left-footed effort cracked against the underside of the crossbar with Swan rooted to the spot.

At the other end, goalkeeper Aaron Chapman only had routine stops to make, keeping out skipper Luke Knight and waving a Dylan Williams effort wide of the target. The hosts made a switch at the break with Harry O’Malley replacing Knight.

The deadlock was broken three minutes after the re-start, Louis Reed playing a delightful ball over the top to Matt Stevens and his shot was well saved by Dan Swan, but the ball took a deflection off the very unfortunateTAYLOR PARR and found its way into the back of the net.

The lead was doubled on 58 minutes as Morgan Penfold stabbed the ball past the advancing Swan and then rolled the ball into an empty net. It was 3-0 two minutes later as Matt Stevens continued his fine goalscoring pre-season by finishing from close-range after a good ball into the box by local boy Sam Cartwright.

It was nearly 4-0 on 63 minutes as Joe Ward was denied by Swan from a tight angle and then Stevens saw an acrobatic overhead kick cleared off the line by Johnny Herd before Lloyd was pulled up for a dive in the box by the referee.

Matt Stevens, who was a thorn in the side of the Saints during his loan spell with Kettering Town last season,  had the ball in the net again on 72 minutes following a fine Daniel cross but the offside flag was raised on the near side. He did, however, get his second goal of the game on 76 minutes and that was to be the end of the scoring in what had become a very hot, humid afternoon. Morgan  Penfold almost added to their tally when he sent a curling effort over the bar after a good cut back from Ward on 84 minutes after  Danny Lloyd had beaten his man down the left side.

In Summary, A decent First Half performance against strong opposition, where chances for the home side were always going to be at a premium. These games have served great purpose in getting minutes into the players’ legs and getting them to work hard when not in possession of the ball, something the Saints spent long periods, particularly in the second half, doing today.

Next game up for the Saints is a visit from League Two side Stevenage FC on Tuesday evening, kick off 7.45pm here at the Premier Plus Stadium.

Pre-Season Friendly

St Neots Town   1  MK Dons  5

St Neots Town, of Step Seven of the national footballing pyramid, entertained League Two (Step four) MK Dons in a largely entertaining encounter at the Premier Plus Stadium and can be proud of their performance, particularly in the first half hour when the Saints’ attacking department really did pose their professional opponents back four some serious questions but  sadly couldn’t match the build up play with the same level of finishing.

This was St Neots’ second of four prestige pre-season friendlies and their second game inside 36 hours following Saturday’s opener in the heat against Cambridge United and conversely, this was the first outing for our Buckinghamshire opponents as manager Paul Tisdale and assistant, one time Saints midfielder Matt Oakley, chose to give all of their First Team squad a run out, including new signing Robbie Simpson, who had arrived at the club at 4pm, by fielding completely different teams in each half.

An golden early chance for Prince Mutswumbuma in front of goal went begging and three excellent crosses from the right flank from Dion Sembie-Ferris went unconverted as the Saint’s more than matched the Dons in the early period and the deadlock wasn’t broken until the 34th minute when Sam Nombe was found in space and was played in with a through pass. The linesman’s flag stayed down which allowed the striker to round the goalkeeper and finish into the empty net. The second goal arrived three minutes later when a free kick was taken short by striker Robbie Muirhead and laid off to Aidan Nesbit who dispatched a laser like low drive inside the near post, past the despairing efforts of home keeper Dan Swan and this sent the visitors back into the changing room with a healthy advantage.

The Dons returned onto the green carpet with a completely different line up after the break and the Saints chose to make three changes of their own with keeper Swan replaced by fellow trialist Harry Reynolds, Harry O’Malley replacing the birthday boy James Peters and Matty Miles coming on for Prince Mutswumbuma and theSaints took advantage of their visitors reshuffling of the ranks after 50 minutes as Dion Sembie-Ferris got on the end of some neat inter-passing out wide on the left and struck a sweet shot which caught a slight deflection from a defender and looped over the top of Sietsma in the Dons’ goal to get his team firmly back into the game.

Both teams continued to attack without adding to their tally and after 70 minutes, the tables were turned as the Dons took advantage of St Neots’ raft of substitutions which had taken place two minutes earlier as substitute Dylan Asonganyi was allowed to waltz through the centre of the pitch and unleash a spectacular drive from fully thirty yards into the top right hand corner of Reynolds’ goal to make the score 3-1.

As in Saturday’s game versus Cambridge, fatigue was now taking its toll on the rapidly tiring St Neots boys and the visitors were awarded a penalty kick in the 86th minute after a hand ball by the returning to action James Peters and this was smashed home by Kieran Agard. The scoring was completed two minutes from time when another great strike, this time from George Williams, arrowed past Reynolds and into the near post net.

Another good ninety minutes workout for the boys and now five days to prepare for  the upcoming visit of Peterborough United on Saturday
