HELP! Please Read
Wideopen Football Club is planning for the future as we have now taken over the running of our Headquarters from North Tyneside Council. Please read the letter below to find out more and to see how you can help us.
Andrew Swan, an ex-player of Wideopen Juniors, completed a triathlon earlier this year to support St. Oswald's Hospice in Gosforth. The triathlon was 95km (as St Oswald's needs £9.5m per year to run). It worked out at 1/2m swim, 48.5m cycle to Morpeth and finally a 10m run from Ponteland finishing at St Oswald's. Andrew did the majority on his own but did have some friends join him for 5m of the cycle and then the full run! See photographs from Andrew's triathlon below.

New Club Partner and Sponsor
We are proud to have Pass4Soccer involved with Wideopen Football Club. Barry Poole visited the club on Wednesday 10th July 2013 to present a talk to players and parents from the Under 15s (2013/14 season). Barry told everyone a little about Pass4Soccer as well as providing an update about how his son, Phil, is doing in America. Phil won Managers Player at Wideopen Juniors in the early 1990's as well being a regular recipient of the Most Man of the Match Awards. Phil sent a message to everyone at Wideopen Juniors saying, "All the lads I am sure will like me be indebted to the hard work all at Wideopen Juniors FC have given so unselfishly since Chairman John Stephenson’s vision and dedication launched the club in 1987."
WIdeopen Football Club (junior and senior teams) is a family club whose first interests are those of our members. The Managers, Coaches and Committee are a team off the pitch. Each age group is encouraged to work as a team on the pitch. Inevitably, the whole issue of football comes first and foremost and we aim to ensure that it is an enjoyable experience for the youngsters who represent Wideopen FC week in, week out, in all weathers. We continually strive for better standards in coaching qualifications, facilities, equipment, first aid / treatment of injuries, equality, disabilities, child protection issues and training, as well as further developing school and community links. We encourage fair play, sportsmanship and equity. We have the FA Charter Mark for Quality and have gained the much sought after Kitemark. Our stated aim is to increase the quality of provision for children and to continue to raise our standards in all aspects of football. At Wideopen we have always prided ourselves upon our standards in all aspects of the game. Coaching is an area in which we excel and we have qualified coaches at all levels. We also have several Referees. The facilities will be made available to all children and adults within our catchment area. WFC's website is a central source of information about the club.
