NORTH WALSHAM TOWN FC WELCOME NNDC PROPOSAL FOR NORTH WALSHAM WEST

  • Land allocation allows NWTFC to grow current constrained home
  • Continues to strengthen football provision within North Walsham and District Community for the future

North Walsham Town Football Club welcome the announcement by NNDC of the North Walsham West proposal and plan to allocate NWTFC land to enable capacity to grow football provision.

After a successful merger last year to consolidate North Walsham football under one umbrella the District Council proposal for North Walsham West is a massive opportunity. The proposed growth land should allow greater security and increased opportunity for football provision across the community amongst all age groups and abilities. The club hosts approximately 24 teams on a constrained site:

  • Variety of youth age groups (girls & boys)
  • Mini Kickers
  • Ladies First Team
  • Men’s First, Reserves and A Team
  • Men’s Veterans (Over 35’s)

Commenting on the NNDC proposal for North Walsham West, current NWTFC Chairman, Craig Brown said, “The football club welcome the proposed plan not only for us and our members but also the town due to the number of benefits it will bring economically and socially. Inward investment through community hubs and enhanced facilities will be another massive boost for North Walsham and we are proud to be part of it.”

“In the proposal we are a small part of the overall plan but for many visitors coming here for football related activity we are a focus gateway and their first impression of North Walsham.  Developing North Walsham West in the sensitive manner of the proposal highlights the commitment from NNDC to improve the town in a sustainable manner for us and future generations. Expansion land will allow us to strengthen the future for football related activity in North Walsham as per our “Angels Family” vision.  I would like to go on record to convey our thanks for the continued support from NNDC and Norfolk FA.”

“It is important to stress that we are housing twenty four teams and our current site was never designed to hold that level of activity. Our team of volunteers work extremely hard to overcome the logistical challenges. The continued growth means the club are always looking for more people to help with all aspects from coaching, assisting with refreshments, admin and committee roles.  If you wish to get involved or are an adult or parent with a child who wants to give football a go then please get in touch.  If we don’t have a team then come forwards and help us create one.”
