Health and Safety Advice

Click HereWideopen Football Club is happy to let you know about the following idea.

As we don't need to display the paper tax discs in vehicles anymore, some local police authorities have suggested replacing the discs with 'In Case of Emergency' contact details. The attached PDF (click on the image) can be downloaded, printed and completed then placed in your car's tax disk holder. In case of an emergency while driving, this information could be invaluable to the emergency services.

Thanks to Gareth for highlifghting this opportunity and idea.

Charity Support
Football Remembers

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

Pass4SoccerWe 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."
