Reduced Admission For Promotion Decider

28th April, 2008

Glapwell FC have announced that they have cut their admission prices for their potentially vital last league game of the season.

They know that a win at home to Lincoln Moorlands on Saturday will guarantee them second place in the Premier Division and assure them UniBond League football for the first time in their history.

The prices will be ?3.00 Adults and ?1.50 Concessions and the match is part of a Festival Of Football taking place at Hall Corner this week.

The club are hoping that they can beat the highest attendance of a NCEL Premier Division game this season, currently held by Arnold Town in which 233 supporters attended.

If the record is beaten Glapwell FC will donate ?500 to the designated charities of the club.

Hall Corner Hosts Festival Of Football

15th April, 2008

Glapwell FC have unveiled a week-long Football Festival at their Hall Corner ground that culminates in an appearance by legend Peter Beardsley.

Glapwell Bring Blunt In As Scout

4th February, 2008

Glapwell have appointed former Sutton Town manager Jason Blunt as their Chief Scout with immediate effect.

His role will be to work with the current management team and responsibilities will include the recruitment of senior players into the first team squad.

He will also be looking for young talent, both at academic and professional level, as well as compiling match analysis reports for this and next season.

The club say that 30-year-old Blunt, who had spells as a player at Doncaster Rovers, Halifax, Tamworth and Scarborough, is the perfect man for the job.

Operations Director Kevin Gee said: "Jason has a wealth of experience both as a player and a coach and his networking and experiences will prove a major acquisition to a developing club like ourselves.

"It is very difficult sometimes getting out there to look at both the opposition and the recruitment of players once the season begins.

"So, we believe that Jason's appointment will be invaluable as the club continues to develop."

McJannet Raids His Old Club

18th July, 2007

Glapwell manager Les McJannet has boosted his squad in the club's bid to bring UniBond football to Hall Corner next year.

The former Sutton Town boss has returned to his former club to bring striker Craig Mitchell and highly-rated defender Matt Varley - the latter has still to sign, but McJannet told the Mansfield Chad that he was expected to do so.

On top of those, another former Snipes player Matthew Fox has joined his old boss after a year in the Conference North with Hucknall Town.

Mitchell also has experience of higher level football, having played a few first team games for Mansfield.

He has also figured in the Conference North with both Leigh RMI and Glapwell.

McJannet has also landed two quality players from Ilkeston Town, in midfielder Paul Smith and winger Chris Adams.

"We are optimistic of beating last season when we gained our highest ever position in the Northern Counties East League," said McJannet.

"Training is going well and we have retained virtually all of last season's squad as well as adding five or six quality players."

Glapwell Complete Phase One

27th June, 2007

After four busy months, Glapwell FC have completed the first phase of their ground development.

Now the club can look forward to the new season knowing that what has primarily been a building site over the last four months has now been converted into a new modern changing room facility and a state-of-the-art physio room.

In addition, they have also now installed a private corporate room to be used as a meeting place for local businesses.

The new incorporated board of directors are looking to develop the facilities at Hall Corner for, not only both the first team and all its affiliated youth teams, but hopefully the community as a whole with a view to enhancing the profile of the village.

With the benefit of a wealth of business experience now on board at the club, help is on hand to support other initiatives within the Glapwell parish and other local areas.

Speaking at the club last week, elected Derbyshire County Councillor, Marion Stockdale, explained: "It is important in this day and age and ever-changing environment that we all continue to develop new partnerships, which I feel the new consortium at Glapwell Football club are genuinely looking to do.

"The amount of money we, as members, are given is to assist community groups and organisations in their patch to continue their good work in the communities, purchasing of essential equipment etc., and to assist in building a strong mutual respect with those who work tirelessly in their villages and towns.

"It is also a recognition of commitment which is hoped will also build a bonding partnership working for the future.

"The ?500 cheque is to help complete the disabled toilet provision at the ground as there is an emphasis on addressing disabled access, so reducing pressures on disabled people of all ages."

Physio Required At Glapwell

14th June, 2007

Glapwell FC are offering the position of Club Physio for the forthcoming season with a chance it could turn in to something more permanent.

The club's Operations Director, Kev Gee, says: "As well as having our own ambitious to be a successful non-league football club, Glapwell FC would not look to stop any member of the management team or squad trying to better themselves if the opportunity arose to apply their trade higher up in the National League system.

"Unfortunately for us, this also applies to the role as club physio.

"Paul Smith, who was having his second spell with the club, contacted me to explain that he had been approached by his former manger Nicky Laws to rejoin him at Alfreton in a full time position.

"It is therefore with regret that we accepted Paul's resignation but, at the same time with the full backing of the club, we wish Paul all the best in his new role which, I'm sure with his commitment and drive, he will be very successful.

"However, this has obviously left a position available with our club which we hope we can appoint someone with the same experiences.

"With the new changing room extension now complete incorporating a new state-of-the-art physio room, we hope that we can be successful in appointing a new physio within the next couple of weeks before pre-season commences."

Should anyone be interested in applying for the job, please contact Kev on 07983 991424 for details of the dates that interviews will be taking place.
