Mark Randall.

500th Match

Wells City FC home game on October 4th at the Athletic Ground marks a very special day for the club. The match against Hallen in the Premier Division of the Western League is Mark Randall's 500th game for Wells City. Mark is the son of former Bristol Rovers, Yeovil Town, Stoke City and Bath City legend Paul Randall.

Mark has spent nearly all his playing career with Wells and has recently returned to the club after a short spell at Street last season. He is loving being back at his home club. Mark's playing qualities, a very good first touch, good in the air, is a good passer and has the ability to deliver a quality cross. His father Paul says he was quicker but Mark disagrees!

A particularly special occasion for Mark took place for the First team against Frys Club where Mark and Paul were both named on the bench and were brought on together in the second half. The referee knew who Paul was but didn’t believe Mark’s name! They played together in all the three senior sides until Paul's gave way! Paul, and grandfather Ken along with all the Randall family are very proud of Mark’s achievements.

Community Radio Awards

Ian Nockolds, who has been commentating on the Western League Football since 2010, picked up the Gold award for sports broadcasting at the Community Radio Awards. The inaugural awards took place at Birmingham City University, on Saturday 10th September, to a sold out gala with over 35 community radio stations being recognised for their broadcasting excellence.

Ian Nockolds has been involved with sports broadcasting on Somer Valley FM, a community radio station based in North East Somerset, since the station was piloted in August 2006. Since moving to Melksham, Ian has always been keen to include his adopted home town in his broadcasts, which focus on Welton Rovers and Radstock Town. Since Ian started six years ago, he's covered matches involving a total of 31 Western League Clubs.

On receiving the award Ian thanked all the volunteers who have been involved with the Show since it began, before making special mention of the Clubs, without whom there would be no content.

Ian said, "This award isn't just about the quality of our sports coverage, it's about recognising the hard work and commitment of the volunteers at every Club we cover. They support us in supporting them and now we are all on the Gold medal team.

For many teams in the Western League, Somer Valley FM is the only time their supporters might get to hear a live match commentary. I've always been conscious of this and I can only hope that supporters from Clubs other than Welton and Radstock have been able to enjoy our coverage of their teams."

Grant Application Service

The Grant Application Service has been in place for 12 months and in its first year has helped a number of clubs in the Western League.

The Service provides advice and guidance to clubs who are looking to update their infrastructure as well as hands on management where required.

The Service can provide advice on all aspects of grant funding, including planning, finding suppliers and completion of all necessary documents to run your project or prepare documents for the Football Association or other lottery funds.

There is no cost at the initial stage and where a more hands on approach is required in general the costs are low, as costs can be claimed back from the grant received.

If you would like to discuss your club's infrastructure needs and funding, please call Steve Nicholls on 07454320934

There is now a new website available and can be found by following this link
