Under 19 Sevens, Saturday 17th September 2016

On a typically bright sunny day for this season opener, Monkseaton HS retained their U19 Sevens trophy in a competition supported by Newcastle Rotary.

After the group stages, quarter-finals were contested that saw Monkseaton, Heaton Manor, RGS and a County Select team enter the semi-finals.

Heaton Manor excelled themselves to beat the County Select while Monkseaton saw off the RGS.

An entertaining final was won by Monkseaton by 13 match points (3 goals + 1 corner) to 8 points (2 goals).


Northumberland Schools' FA and Northumberland FA are pleased to announce a new partnership that will see NFA employee Andrew Smith working part-time as an Administrator for NSFA. 

Both associations see this as a mutually beneficial arrangement as they seek to work together for the development of youth football in the county.

John Ackerley, recently appointed CEO of NFA said,"I see this as an exciting opportunity for the two Associations to work even more closely together".

Neil Pont, Secretary of NSFA, said," Not only will this appointment secure even better relationships between our two Associations, but it will also allow long-serving volunteers to take a more strategic and advisory role within the school association.  It is a clear 'win win'"
