Nostell help youngster fulfil sporting dream

20th February, 2018

Nostell Miners Welfare secretary Granville Marshall and player Wayne Ball have handed over a cheque to a local youngster to help him take part in an international football tournament later this year.

Callum Deary, who plays for the club's disability football team, is one of fifteen selected for the Mencap GB squad for the European Championships that takes place in Geneva, Switzerland, in May.

The 19-year-old was presented with the £150 donation on-the-pitch prior to Nostell’s 4-1 Toolstation NCEL Division One win over Selby Town on Friday night.

Callum still needs to raise a little bit more for his trip but he is confident that the final total will be hit by the end of the week when the disability team hold a fundraising event.

It has been a whirlwind few months for the youngster who, until last September, had never played for a team before and simply played football in either his garden or in his street.

He has also been nominated for the Disability Sport Yorkshire Sportsman of the Year award with the winner announced at a ceremony at Leeds United's Elland Road stadium in March.

NLY Community Sport coaches Connor Rollinson and James Grayson, who are in charge of the Nostell team, are throughly delighted with the news.

Connor said: “Myself and James are over the moon. We have only been going five months and we have another major achievement on the books.

“Callum should be really proud of himself. Getting in the Mencap GB team was one thing, but to be nominated for a regional award is just as good. He’s now going to a prestigious venue where there will be well-known faces, to potentially collect an award.

“For someone not actively playing organised football five months ago, that is quite some achievement.

“Callum’s achievements send out a clear message about the kind of opportunities available.”

New joint managers at Nostell

27th November, 2017

Nostell Miners Welfare have appointed Simon Houghton and Jason Dodsworth as their new joint managers after Des Hazel stepped down for personal reasons.

Their first game in charge will be Saturday's home clash with Toolstation NCEL Division One leaders Knaresborough Town as the pair look to guide the side out of the bottom three of the table.

Houghton has had success in managerial positions in the NCEL at Pontefract Collieries, Glasshoughton Welfare and Athersley Recreation whilst Dodsworth had a number of roles in the dugout also at Athersley.

Nostell chairman Kevin Allsop told Non League Yorkshire: "I’m absolutely delighted to confirm Simon and Jason as our new managers.

"I think it is a real statement of intent from ourselves because they are two very proven NCEL managers.

"Simon has done a brilliant job at everywhere he has been, while Jason has won countless trophies with Athersley.

"Their ability to attract quality players is second to none and that is a key reason why we have chosen to appoint them.

"Everyone I have spoken to speaks very highly of them."

Allsop also paid tribute to Hazel who was in charge at the Crofton Community Centre for five months, saying: "Des leaves with his head held high and he should be proud of what he has achieved with very limited resources.

"He has restored pride in the club with the team’s performances so far this season.

"He has given Simon and Jason an excellent platform to build from."
