DEDICATED members of a junior football club in Warrington worked to ensure the presence of potentially life-saving devices at games.

Matthiola JFC, which offers free-age aged five a chance to play football in the Penketh and Great Sankey areas, has bought a further 11 defibrillators.

The club felt they needed to act after watching Danish professional Christian Eriksen collapse on the pitch during the European Championships last summer.

The fundraiser allowed all players to have access to a defibrillator in case of emergency.

Posting on social media, the club said: “We are extremely proud to say that we have now secured another 11 defibrillators for the club.

“This means that each of our 20 teams will each have their own defibrillator with them during home and away games and in training.

“Our teams play in quite remote locations in the North West which may be inaccessible to medical services, or where critical time would be lost in the event of a cardiac emergency.

“We all saw the impact on Christian Eriksen during the Euros, and that was followed by lives saved in Premier League games through the use of defibrillators.

“They really make a huge difference when called upon, and as a committee we knew this was a risk for our club and we had to do something about it and quickly.”

Since the summer, the club have worked hard to raise more than £7,000 in funds needed to spend on defibrillators.

He says he is in a much better place now if anything happens to players, opposing players, coaches and parents.

The club added: “A huge thank you to the Cheshire Community Foundation, Co-op, London Hearts and the parents who donated to our Just Giving page.

“It’s a phenomenal achievement for any football club, and it will be incredibly rare at grassroots level.

“Every penny we earn as a club from our players’ subscriptions is reinvested to improve ourselves, whether in training, pitch improvements or equipment.

“Our club continues to go from strength to strength, both on and off the pitch.”

‘A consequence none of us would want’: Football club in race to create new stands to avoid relegation threat https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/a-consequence-none-of-us-would-want-football-club-in-race-to-create-new-stands-to-avoid-relegation-threat/ Wed, 09 Mar 2022 16:35:22 +0000 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/a-consequence-none-of-us-would-want-football-club-in-race-to-create-new-stands-to-avoid-relegation-threat/ A football club that has enjoyed a meteoric rise is racing to complete a series of improvements on the ground to avoid relegation.

A football club that has enjoyed a meteoric rise is racing to complete a series of improvements on the ground to avoid relegation.

Stockton Town FC are enjoying their first season in the Eastern Division of the Northern Premier League – fourth in their bid for promotion.

But the Anchors risk being relegated from the eighth tier of English football if they don’t improve their ground with new seats.

Goes here for the latest regional affairs and policy news from Teesside

Next week will see Stockton Councilors decide on plans for two new stands to be erected at the Bishopton Road West stadium.

The existing prefabricated stand is expected to be moved further along the west side of the ground to make way for a six-tier, 200-seater facility.

A 120-seat covered stand is also planned behind the goal at the southern end of the pitch.

Attendance at the MAP Group UK stadium is the highest in the league – with an average crowd of 608 so far this season.

But council officials say the newly planned stands are not in response to this increase in attendance, but to meet minimum ground quality standards set by the FA.

The report added: “Failure to meet the required standards would result in the club’s relegation from the current division.”

Stockton Town have enjoyed great success on the pitch over the past decade.



Stockton Town players celebrate Kevin Hayes’ goal in the FA Vase draw against Ashington

After leaving the Teesside League, their senior team won four consecutive Wearside League titles between 2012 and 2016.

The club’s run in the FA Vase in 2017/18 saw a trip to Wembley and a narrow 1-0 defeat in the final to Thatcham Town.

And the good times continued – with the Anchors promoted from the top tier of the Northern League last season despite the covid disruptions.

A letter submitted by the club’s committee explained how the team now played in the north of England – with the club growing to almost 40 teams covering boys, girls, women and men.

“Never in our wildest dreams did we imagine the success the club has achieved not only on the pitch but also in our wider community with the commitment of the people of the city,” he added. .

Club officials said their facilities were a source of great pride – the new plans being a consequence of some of the successes seen.

The letter added: “This proposal is not to develop a stadium beyond the capacity of the surrounding infrastructure, but simply to provide the minimum standard of spectator accommodation.

“Failure of the club to provide these minimum facilities would result in forced relegation – a consequence none of us would want.

“If these proposals are accepted, it will not increase the crowds who attend our games, but will simply provide them with additional shelter from the winter weather – and allow our older generation of spectators to continue to attend as there will be seats available for them.”

Authorization for the artificial playing surface and renovated stadium was granted in a knife vote in 2015.

Six objections were filed to the latter plans with concerns over crowd noise and drainage.

A Chivers Court resident suggested the club were overstaying their facilities.

He added: “Isn’t it time for them to look for somewhere bigger and more suitable for the club they hope to become?”

A 3.5m high acoustic fence has been lined up on Chivers Court and Meridian Way – with planning officers recommending the new stalls be approved.

A decision will be made at the Stockton planning committee next Wednesday.

Ahead of the meeting, club chairman Martin Hillerby stressed that the plans were not to increase crowds, but to provide more facilities for spectators who show up.

“That’s what we have to provide for football at this level – it won’t add 500 people to the crowd,” he said.

“Crowds are going to be determined by success on the pitch.”

Fellow Teessiders Marske United are currently top of the league – three points clear of Liversedge who have a game in progress.

The Seasiders host Lincoln United on Saturday while Stockton travel to play-off rivals Cleethorpes.

‘I would like someone like that at my football club’ – Jamie O’Hara thinks Manchester United should bring in club legend to fix ‘mentality’ at Old Trafford https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/i-would-like-someone-like-that-at-my-football-club-jamie-ohara-thinks-manchester-united-should-bring-in-club-legend-to-fix-mentality-at-old-trafford/ Mon, 07 Mar 2022 19:04:43 +0000 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/i-would-like-someone-like-that-at-my-football-club-jamie-ohara-thinks-manchester-united-should-bring-in-club-legend-to-fix-mentality-at-old-trafford/ Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara has encouraged Manchester United to bring in club legend Roy Keane after their Manchester derby defeat.

Former Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Jamie O’Hara has encouraged Manchester United to bring in club legend Roy Keane after their Manchester derby defeat.

Manchester United were outclassed by Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday. Jadon Sancho scored for United between two Kevin de Bruyne goals. Riyad Mahrez scored a brace in the second half to complete the 4-1 thrashing.

The Red Devils appeared to have admitted defeat after conceding the third goal and played with it for the rest of the game. Several players have been rightly criticized since the game, including Harry Maguire, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Fred carrying the weight.

O’Hara claimed the club needed the leadership of someone like Keane.

😡 “This is what owners deserve.” 😠 “This is the worst group of #MUFC players I’ve seen in my life.”😡 “Maguire has been terrible for years. Look at body language. A shame. »Alex Crook doesn’t hold back in this Manchester United rant 🔥 https://t.co/jVrexOUUfg

Keane is obviously regarded as one of the best captains United have ever had and is known for his direct, sometimes brutal approach. Talk to talkSPORTO’Hara said:

“Why don’t they catch Roy Keane?” Not as a manager, but why isn’t Roy Keane involved at Manchester United? Tell me why he’s not involved.”

He explained how much United needed Keane’s mentality and leadership at the club. He said:

“He’s not just an ex-player, he was the captain of the most successful team in the Premier League. Surely, if I was Man United, and I heard him [Keane] every week on Sky, I wish someone like that at my football club. We have to get this guy in and get these players to have that mentality, have him around, surely?

He added:

“When you play football you have to have that leadership. You have to have those people who can dig into something and roll up your sleeves and fight for each other.

Manchester United players accused of not wanting to do well for the club

Jamie O’Hara has accused the team of not wanting to do well for the club. Stressing the importance of bringing in someone like Roy Keane, O’Hara said:

“I just look at this Manchester United team and they are full of talent, but I just don’t know if they have a heart, a desire. I don’t know if that’s out of the game, maybe they’re worried about a Roy Keane coming in and messing people up. I think you need that in football.”

Several players who are or were permanent players on the bench have gone to other clubs and have performed well recently. Jesse Lingard was a star at West Ham United last season for the second half of the season, contributing 14 goals in 16 appearances.

Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial are also proving their worth for their new clubs. They joined Everton and Sevilla respectively in January.

🗣 “These guys it’s all about how I look, do I measure up? Are my boots nice? What does my hair look like? Just play the game.” 🤬Roy Keane fills up at the box office with an explosive rant on Manchester United https://t.co/lRUBs1nyTB

At Manchester United there is obviously a lot of talent, as O’Hara claimed. However, the lack of work rate has led to the team underperforming regardless of the tactical system or the opposition they are playing against.

The club have changed managers regularly in recent years, but have failed to bring in consistent players in crucial positions. Currently, the road back to the top seems to be tediously long for the club.

Football: club licensing system part of plans to develop local women’s football https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/football-club-licensing-system-part-of-plans-to-develop-local-womens-football/ Sat, 05 Mar 2022 15:00:38 +0000 https://fc-zhemchuzhina.com/football-club-licensing-system-part-of-plans-to-develop-local-womens-football/ SINGAPORE — For years, women’s football club Still Aerion struggled with the problem of not having a regular training ground.

SINGAPORE — For years, women’s football club Still Aerion struggled with the problem of not having a regular training ground.

This meant that players traveled anywhere from Boon Lay to Tampines for training – depending on which pitches they could book through Sport Singapore’s (SportSG) dual-use scheme.

But this uncertainty about their place of training has also impacted the attendance of players, who are students and working professionals.

But the club have enjoyed more stability in recent months and have been training at the Bukit Gombak stadium, thanks to support from national agency SportSG, which runs the Unleash The Roar! project with the Football Association of Singapore (FAS).

President Pamela Kong hopes things will change for the better as FAS announced at the Women’s Football Conference 2022 in Singapore on Saturday March 5 its plans to introduce a club licensing system for women’s amateur clubs.

She said: “It will be a long journey. Ideally we will work towards a professional league in Singapore and it’s a small step towards that big goal, but it’s a good first step to take.”

The club license was first introduced in the FAS in 2011 as a list of basic criteria for S-League clubs to participate in Asian Football Confederation (AFC) club competitions such as the AFC Champions League and AFC Cup.

The move to introduce a club licensing system for women’s teams is part of FAS’ plans to lift the local women’s league.

The pilot project will begin with a two-year education phase to help clubs meet the criteria required to obtain a licence, before the system is implemented from 2024.

The criteria that clubs must meet to be licensed fall into five main categories: sporting, infrastructure, legal, administrative and personnel, and financial.

The Straits Times understands that seven Women’s Premier League clubs will be involved in the pilot.

Kong added that she hopes the introduction of a club licensing system will also bring stability to the league which often sees clubs come and go.

Culture, Community and Youth Minister Edwin Tong, who was guest of honor at the event, also announced that women’s football would be included in the School Football Academy program ( SFA), which aims to become a pipeline to produce young players with good technique. capacity.

It was announced last year that 10 schools would participate in an SFA pilot program starting in 2022 and these institutions would eventually participate in a youth league that would run throughout the year.

Each SFA will have a staff of at least four to five full-time coaches, including specialist goalkeeping, strength and conditioning coaches, and performance analysts.

PLANS for over 50 new homes in a village near Malvern have been welcomed by the local football club.

Plans include a shared space for local groups and sports teams, with Simon Secretan, chairman of Leigh and Bransford Badgers, welcoming the news.

“The Leigh and Bransford Badgers Football Club (LBBFC) strongly supports these plans, which will provide 5.75 hectares (14.2 acres) of land for community sport; and high quality open space.

“We are already working closely with the school and local residents to create a green and sustainable community facility with all options on the table, including potential for community meeting rooms, a multipurpose play area and can -even be a bike path.

“This is a project of many partners, it’s not just about The Badgers, but about all of us working together to provide the best possible facility for everyone.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to create a legacy community recreational facility for the use of all of Leigh Sinton and her wider parish.”

Mr Secretan added that the club had an “urgent need” to centralize their work.

It currently operates 24 teams across all age groups from Under 5s to Under 18s.

These train and play in different locations with no clubhouse facility.

With its members drawn heavily from local primary and secondary schools, as well as the village of Leigh Sinton itself, the hope is that the housing plans will give the club some sort of permanent home.

Mr Secretan added: “We have been in talks with the applicant since 2016, this is the best option to provide community facilities to the village and we look forward to working with all groups and stakeholders who wish to be part of this. exciting project. »

FIFA 22: Revealed Team of the Year

EA Sports’ football video game franchise could change its name after FIFA 23, if their licensing agreement is not renewed with FIFA.

According to previous reports from the New York Times, the current 10-year agreement between EA Sports and FIFA could come to an end after this year’s World Cup in Qatar (December 2022), meaning that a potential franchise name change could come after the launch of FIFA 23 (expected in September 2022), if this license not be renewed. Yesterday, Mirror Football reported that EA Sports are still planning to release FIFA 23 this year, but the massive games franchise may be coming to an end soon, following comments made by EA CEO Andrew Wilson to employees.

* Click here to subscribe to Level up! The sports and gaming fairthe podcast is available on Loud speaker, Spotify, Apple podcast or wherever you get your podcasts.*

In comments provided anonymously to VGCWilson told employees at an internal meeting in November that “the FIFA brand makes more sense as a video game than as the governing body of football” and that “what we get from FIFA in a year without a World Cup, these are the four letters on the front of the box”.

According to the same article, Wilson also claimed that the FIFA license has been an “‘impediment’ to EA Sports in terms of growing their franchise and that “FIFA is just the name on the box, but they have prevented our capacity to be able to diversify in the fields desired by the players.

EA has yet to officially announce a possible title change for its football games if they lose the rights to the FIFA name, but as previously reported by the New York TimesEA trademarked “EA Sports FC” in the UK and EU in October 2021, hinting at a potential new game for their popular franchise, should EA decide not to renew its deal with FIFA.

This phrase was previously used by EA when the EA SPORTS Football Catalog (EASFC) was featured in-game until it was removed in FIFA 21. The EA SPORTS Football Catalog allowed players to earn Credits from football club (FFC) by simply playing the game, similar to in-game currency such as V-Bucks in Fortnite.

These credits could then be used to redeem for cosmetic items like football boots, balls, and kits for use in Pro Clubs, or beneficial bonuses in Ultimate Team and Career Mode such as Coin Boosts or Takedowns. financial control. EA Sports could take a similar route to Konami and rebrand its soccer game franchise to something similar to eFootball, formerly known as Pro Evolution Soccer. Other possible names could be EAS Football or EA Club Football, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

EA Sports’ FIFA franchise began in December 1993 with the launch of FIFA International Soccer, but the company revealed in October 2021 that it was exploring a potential name change for its global soccer games.

“We are exploring the idea of ​​renaming our EA SPORTS Global Football Games,” Says EA’s statement in October 2021.

“We are reviewing our naming rights agreement with FIFA, which is separate from all of our other official football partnerships and licenses.

“Our priority is to ensure that we have every chance of continuing to deliver the best interactive football experiences in the world.”

FIFA responded with a strong statement following EA Sports’ statement, suggesting that they could create their own football video game instead.

“FIFA will adopt a new business positioning in gaming and esports to ensure that it is best placed to make decisions that benefit all football stakeholders,” FIFA said in a statement posted on its website.

“FIFA is optimistic and excited about the future of gaming and esports for football, and it is clear that this needs to be a space occupied by more than one party controlling all rights.

“Technology and mobile companies are now actively competing to be associated with FIFA, its platforms and global tournaments.

“Therefore, FIFA is engaging with various industry players, including developers, investors and analysts, to develop a long-term vision for the games, esports and interactive entertainment sector.”

Could the non-renewal of the license agreement with FIFA lead to a lower quality game? Could this lead to potential revenue loss for EA Sports? And, would you still buy EA Sports’ football game if it wasn’t called FIFA? Let us know in the comments.

Powered by football, EA SPORTS FIFA 22 brings the game even closer to reality with a new season of innovation across all modes and revolutionary next-gen HyperMotion gaming technology on PlayStation5 that elevates every moment of the game.

Angel City Football Club has attracted more high-profile investors as the women’s soccer team prepares for its first pre-season game in March.

The Santa Monica-based National Women’s Soccer League expansion team completed its Series A funding round on February 16 with a group of investors that now includes actress and producer Gabrielle Union and songwriter -performer Christina Aguilera, who join early high-profile investors Serena Williams, Natalie Portman, Uzo Aduba, Eva Longoria and Jennifer Garner.

Terms were not disclosed, but FCAC co-founder and president Julie Uhrman released a statement confirming the completion of the funding round.

“Each of our new investors is committed to supporting our goal of setting higher expectations on and off the pitch through the impact we have in the community and on women’s football,” Uhrman said. “This group joins our incredibly active and passionate roster of founding investors.”

Angel City Football Club was founded in 2019 by Uhrman, Portman, venture capitalist Kara Nortman and Seven Seven Six founder Alexis Ohanian.
