Scotts are chuffed to help Harry

Three generations of the same family are going the extra mile for CHUF – and to support Wallsend lad Harry White.

Brave Harry, nine, has already undergone four heart operations in his short life and is waiting for a fifth.

The battling youngster was born with the life threatening heart condition, pulmonary atresia, a malformation of the pulmonary valve.

Now three generations of the Scott family – including Charlie, 67, Kelly, 42 and 18-year-old Christopher – will compete in the famous Great North Run to raise funds for CHUF, the Children’s Heart Unit Fund.

The trio are all connected to Newcastle East End FC where Harry’s dad Paul is a coach and brother Jake, 11, is a player.

Charlie, who has been at the club since it started 20 years ago, said: “We have known Harry for seven years and what he has gone through, he is just fantastic.

“You just cannot speak highly enough of what CHUF has done in his short life. And it’s not just for Harry but for all the other youngsters they have helped over the years.

“Harry is a lovely lad. Even though he has been through so much he is so bubbly. He is unbelievable. It’s always a pleasure to have him here.

“We are all so proud to be able to run in his name.”

Newcastle East End FC in aid of CHUF to support Harry White

Thanks for the memories

A message from Dave Lattimer.

I have been at Newcastle East End FC for 14yrs and now feel this is the right time to move on. Although I work FT I do have my own business also, Quadrant Leisure and it this which I find is now taking up my spare time.

I have made some long lasting friendships in my time here, I have had various volunteer roles from Coach, assistant, Committee member roles include communications, club coordinator, charter standard coordinator and more recently club Secretary.

Watching both my kids grow up with this club and represent them on and off the field has been the biggest highlight, of many. Like everyone, I have had some lows but these are by far outweighed by the great laughs with coaches and parents along the way.

I started the girls section up here at the club, and this has been taken on and developed massively by Alan and Tosh.

My teams from mini-soccer through to the ‘fighting 17s’ all had great members, some top players and others who were just solid reliable lads. My girls teams were certainly an eye opener! but actually brought me a far better understanding of what being coach meant.

I have been involved in promotions, winning a league title and cup final, traveled to Berwick with the bare 11 players for a midweek game, had one sent off after 10mins and won with 10! Lost a cup final by a single goal – heartbreaking!

I have coached my two kids, Carl and Staci, not always advisable, but wouldn’t change a thing. I then moved on to help my son Carl, who played from aged 8 to 18 then returned to manage the ‘Famous Yellows’ where I stepped in to help and over the next three / four years they were just brilliant, on and off the pitch. The kids and parents were a family and we had some ‘unforgettable’ memories including Haggerston and taking over the Turbinia!

The work by the committee is mostly unseen, but it is never ending, the inclusion of the ‘Admin ladies’ was a great step forward. I must also include Les in this, his work is tireless and enthusiasm a credit to what he has helped create at the club.

But I must keep my final words for the two people who are East End, and will be friends for life. Kelly and Charlie have advised, supported and influenced these last 14 years. Without them my journey would never have achieved so much.

It is also out of respect for them and the club that if I do decide to move back in to grassroots football, it would only ever be with East End – that should say enough as to how I feel about those two guys and this club.

As always folks, support the club first, a team is nothing without a club like this behind them. the grass is not always greener on the other side – enjoy what you have at this club, there are not many like it!

Take care, enjoy your football, support the kids development on and off the pitch and stick together!

Billy Bell memorial trophy

Barry Hindson Charlie Scott Bill Gibson

On Monday 14 September 2015, during a team managers meeting, our Vice Chairman Charlie Scott was presented with the ‘Billy Bell Memorial Trophy’.

Charlie was completely taken by surprise – and lost for words! as the meeting was paused whilst the presentation took place.

The presentation, ‘for outstanding contribution to junior football’ was made by BBC Newcastle’s very own Barry Hindson, and Bill Gibson, Vice President of Gateshead FC.

Award background

Billy Bell managed Blyth Spartans, Spennymoor and Evenwood Town to the Northern League title and he was regarded as an innovative coach who was years ahead of his time. He was also the pioneer of junior football in the North East with Evenwood Juniors it was from his original idea that everything else followed and junior football spread cross the region.

It is fair to say without Billy’s initial vision junior football would not be what it is today. Many people of vision and dedication have carried the game forward  but it all began with Billy Bell.

When Billy passed away Bill Gibson, former Chairman and now Vice President of Gateshead and a close friend of the Bell family, suggested putting up a trophy to be awarded annually in his memory to someone who had made an outstanding contribution to junior football. Bill and Barry became trustees of the award and with input from the Northumberland FA and Durham FA they select the recipient who receives The Billy Bell Memorial Trophy to be held for one year as well as a permanent replica.

Hearts with Goals

Charlie with Alan ShearerNorth East Hearts with Goals charity was started by 2 sisters in law Kelly Best & Christine Stephenson in March 2013.

As part of their campaign to distribute Defibrillators across the grassroots community, Newcastle East End FC being one of their latest!

We were delighted to show Kelly and Christine around the club and have the Legend that is Shearer ‘officially’ hand over the Defib machine to Vice Chairman Charlie Scott.

As part of our commitment to raise fund for their charity all our players have purchased the wristbands for £1 each.

The Women lead the way

North East Regional Womens Football LeagueThe Newcastle East End Women’s team swept all before them last season winning both the Northumberland Women’s League title and the League Cup.

This has not gone unnoticed and now, we are delighted to announce they have been promoted to the North East Regional Women’s Football League – Northern Division.

This is a huge step up for the players and staff, not to mention the club, and we would like to congratulate them for the achievements to date.

We now know the hard work starts as they prepare to face a different level of opposition and this can only be the way forward for the team and the club if we are to progress.

More details will follow after the league AGM.
