Pitches Update - 22nd October 2023
NCC have declared all parks pitches in Newport unfit for play this weekend.
If you have a game scheduled for a private ground or a 3G pitch you are able to play subject to referee's inspection although you may not be able to make a determination on fitness until games on a Saturday have been played.
Small Sided Football is a modified version of the 11-a-side game. It gives children the chance to play real football, for a real team, whilst experiencing an enjoyable and fun introduction to football through small sided games.
Under 7: 4 v 4 (no goalkeeper)
Under 8: 5 v 5 (goalkeeper introduced)
Under 9: 5 v 5
Under 10: 7 v 7
Under 11: 7 v 7
Please note the following information from Newport City Council
"When a pitch is called off it is for the whole of that weekend period eg Sat & Sundays, this includes youth and mini games
We are aware that the mini's often continue to play their games and their excuse is that they don't cause as much damage as an adult team. Newport City Council do not accept this and should the damage caused by the use be of any significant amount, a charge for repair will be made to the offending team/s.
It is not acceptable for games to be played on any pitch once it has been called off, like wise using areas of open space or sections of ground adjacent to the pitch as these areas are usually uneven and not suitable for organised games such as football etc. We would like to remind everyone that the council would not accept any liability for personal injury in the event of an accident"
