Greenbank and Welton together as one

Greenbank and Welton this afternoon showed the true spirit of football can unite a community at a time of need.

They played out a coaches game at NK, Greenbank running out 6-4 winners.

But the real winner today was a superb amount of money raised for Drew Wilkinson’s family.

Drew was a coach of a Welton team. Tragically, he lost his life in a car accident in September, leaving behind his long term partner, Tracey, and two boys, Logan and Cobi.

The two teams decided to arrange a match between coaches and managers, to raise the family some funds, as a way of helping them through this tough time.

We are delighted to say, that a total of £550 has been raised. This will be passed to Drew’s family over the weekend.

We’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all that helped arrange this, as well as all in attendance.

Greenbank and Welton to join together for a great cause

Greenbank’s managers and coaches are set to play their Welton counterparts, in a heartwarming football game.

Sadly, on 8th September this year, Drew Wilkinson, manager of a Welton Under 7 team, lost his life in a car accident, leaving a devoted partner, Tracey, and two young sons, Logan and Cobi.

In the true spirit of football coming together to help at difficult times, the clubs are due to play a fundraising game, on Saturday 2nd December @ NK Sports Centre. With kick off due to be approximately 3pm, all funds raised will be donated to the family, as we look to help them through this difficult time.

We welcome as many people as possible, to join us on the 3G at NK on 2nd December, along with a voluntary donation upon admission.

Club Statement

The Greenbank Committee wishes to take this opportunity to reinforce our stance that, as a club, we have a zero-tolerance attitude to any players, spectators or coaches that are seen to be in breach of FA Respect Guidelines. The Committee has been made aware of a few issues over recent weeks, which are not befitting of a club that is both FA Charter Standard and the reigning Club Of The Year, and are dealing with these issues immediately. We would like to remind all that breaching FA Respect Guidelines can result in the individual, team or even club being removed from the league.  Continue reading “Club Statement”

Kit Donation – Leslie Manser Primary School

Over the summer Greenbank gratefully received a junior football kit as a result of attaining our FA Charter Standard Club accreditation for the following season.

Following a recent Committee meeting, it was decided that we donate the football kit to a local school. Therefore, the community donation of the football kit took place this morning to Leslie Manser Primary School. It was gratefully received by head teacher Adrian Jones who thanked the club for their contribution.

We hope you have many successful games in your new kit.

Motorhead kit named in FourFourTwo’s top 50 kits…ever!!

FourFourTwo have, this afternoon, announced via their Twitter account ( that our Motorhead sponsored kit has been named in their top 50 kits…ever! Manager at the time, Gary Weight, knew Lemmy going back a while and sent off a speculative email asking whether they’d be interested in sponsoring the team, to his amazement the band came back and said yes!
