Dave Henrys Photography

Northop Hall Old Boys FC ........ Sponsored By With thanks to Eifion Jones ........ Follow us on

Welcome to the web pages of Northop Hall Old Boys (over-35's veterans) Football Club, lovers of the beautiful game who put their ageing bodies on the line each week to satisfy that desire (and in a vain attempt to keep middle-age spread at bay!)

NOTE TO OPPONENTS & POTENTIAL OPPONENTS:- We are NOT interested in playing against under-35's in regular season. Please don't even think about fielding "youngsters" against us !!

JULY 2016
Damo steps into the Chair + other news from AGM
"GT's Wepre" announced as new club sponsor



The 2016 Annual General Meeting was held on Tuesday July 5th at Northop Hall Cricket Club. Following the "disappearance" of previous chairman Phil Elder, a new chair was required going forward and Damian Molyneux (pictured below) volunteered for the role with former manager Martin Richardson (also pictured below) as his Vice-Chairman. Dan Hicks will be putting his accountancy head to the club's finances during the forthcoming season as club treasurer, with Dave Henrys to continue as Club Secretary. Mel Barnes was reappointed manager of the over-35's for 2016/17 with the assistance of Darren Molyneux and Pete Dessington, while Dave Henrys has stepped down from managing the over-50's "supervets" and Steve Buckley will take over, assisted by Craig Starkey. The plan for the over-50's is to try and have one game arranged most months through the season.

With the advent of a new sponsor (see previous post) a new kit is to be provided. It will NOT be issued per player as last season. Instead we will be reverting back to having it professionally washed after every game. There will be no annual subscriptions for the coming season thanks to the generosity of our new sponsors, but individual match fees will remain at 5.00 per game. Those wishing to pay up front for the season can make arrangements with Dan to pay an agreed one-off payment of 70.00 at the start of the season. We will also be holding a fund-raising Race Night in the autumn to raise further funds.

Fees for the 7-a-side at Connahs Quay High School will remain at 3.00 per night (5 each when the full pitch is employed for a full 11-a-side game).

Following the huge success of three successive tours to Dublin, it was agreed to look early in the season at going further afield in 2017. A tour committee of Damian Molyneux, Dan Hicks, Dave Henrys and Darren Molyneux will be meeting soon to get some suggestions together so the event can start to be planned early.

The 2016/17 season kicks off on Saturday August 20th with a visit to Frodsham. However, the week before there will be a charity match as a prelude to the new season to raise money for Ronald McDonald House that we are supporting this year. The game will be the Old Boys over-35's v. the over-50's Supervets (+ guests!).

Finally Declan Hickey (in his absence) was thanked for continuing to give freely of his time to referee for us again last season. Although it proved a lively meeting, the attendance of 18 was far and away the best we have ever had, and that was with a few notable unavoidable absentees as well. This interest in the club gives lots of reasons for optimism as we press forward.

Northop Hall Old Boys FC are delighted to announce new sponsors for 2016/17. The 2016 AGM agreed to take up the GT's Bar & Grill (formerly the Wepre Inn / Palamino) offer of funding in return for using their facility after games and for meetings and functions in the foreseeable future. Although sad to cut ties with the cricket club, and particularly with Jane Holden who has kept us well fed over the past few years, the offer which will see a new kit and a contribution towards pitch fees was ultimately too good to turn down. We look forward to a fruitful new partnership (click on one of the images below to go to their website
