The aim of the Balls4Balls event is to raise money (in the run up to the event) through sponsorship of our non-stop Dawn ‘til Dusk (4am to 10pm) football match, via our ‘Just Giving’ page. Bibs versus non-bibs will keep a running score throughout the day – who will win bragging rights?!  All the money raised will be divided equally between Sherwood Football Club and our charity partner – The Oddballs Foundation – a testicular cancer charity.

The money raised for SFC will be divided equality between all represented teamsand used for much needed new balls and other equipment. We would like all teams to aim to raise £200 each.

Please could all SFC coaches and managers inform all their players and parents about the event and start asking for sponsorship from everyone they can e.g. players’ Mums / Dads / Guardians, Brothers, Sisters, Grandparents, Uncles, Aunties, Friends, Dentists, etc. etc.

To donate, point people in the direction of this Just Giving page:

I have also attached an e-flyer (in two formats) with all the main information, which can be forwarded to anyone and everyone.

On the day, each team will have a minimum of one hour playing time on the FSZ, 3G pitches. 

More details on allocated time slots will follow at a later date – Sue is currently working out a rota. Thanks to the SFC Committee and Friends who are taking the 5am – 6am slot (after setting everything up from 4am…!), and Ali and Joe’s U10 Parents and Coaches who very graciously volunteered to take the 6am – 7am slot.  So, the earliest kick-off any team will be facing is a very reasonable 7am.


Along with our Balls4Balls charity event, on the same day, same location, we will we hosting our annual SFC Presentation Day. All teams are invited to join in, by inviting all players and parents/guardians along to celebrate the season and award trophies.

More details on allocated time/presentation slots, how to confirm trophy requirements etc. will also follow. We will also create a web page at with as much information as possible.
