About Gedling Southbank Football Club
Gedling Southbank FC was formed in june 2006 an amalgamation of two well established clubs, Arnold Southbank (formerly Southbank) a senior club founded in 1972, and a junior club Gedling Southbank (formerly Gedling AFC) founded in 1992.
In 2012 the club was awarded Charter Standard Community Club status which is the pinnacle of the Charter Standard Award system.In 2016 we were awarded the Charter Standard Community Club of the Year Award for the East Midlands, which was then quickly followed by the National Award. To win the National Award is an incredible achievement given that the club has no home base but is testament to the great work put in by all the Coaches and Volunteers at the club. By being recognised as the best Grass Roots Football Club in England we know we are doing something right, but more importantly it recognises the high standards we have aspired to as a club both in our organisation and training and playing structure.
Our goal has always to be recognised as a true community club where we can provide the opportunity to play football irrespective of age, sex or ability. Our structure reflects this outlook where boys and girls can start as young as 3 in our little kickers section, progress from age 5 into our mini sections and then continue into our youth sections up to age 18. The senior section then takes over where there are opportunities to play at varying competitive levels, and you are never over the hill as we have a vets for the over 40s.

Both teams were up for this game,their was plenty of passing & movement on show from both teams. I noticed as the game wore on,we were taking more control & the opposition were getting frustrated. We got into fantastic positions & were soon rewarded. Well with a great movement from Jack L & terrific pass Chayse put the ball in net(score 1-0). The game restarted & the opposition heads did drop & their assistant was telling them to concentrate. Unfortunately just before halftime we conceded a penalty,which was tucked away(score 1-1). Not long after the Ref blew for halftime. We had a chat with the boys & made a few substitutions. The game restarted & throughout this half,weq seemed to have more control but the ball wouldn’t go in the net. Overall very impressed with the team performance & M.O.M performance went to Joe.
