Groundsman Role Up For Grabs At Garforth

11th December, 2006

Garforth Town Football Club are now looking for a new Groundsman to start work with the club in the New Year following the departure of Richard Cale.

According to the club's website: "Due to new work commitments, Richard was finding it hard to make time to attend to the pitch as much as he would have liked and thought it would be better to pass the job on to someone with more time to give the pitch the attention it needs.

"Garforth would like to take this opportunity to thank Richard for all his hard work through the years on improving the pitch."

Meanwhile, Garforth Town Captain Brett Renshaw told the website: "The pitch keeps getting better and better each season.

"Richard Cale and other volunteers have done a great job, and we will be sad to see Richard go."

St Juste Back With Garforth

5th November, 2006

Ex-Southampton left-winger Jason St Juste has returned to Garforth to help the club in their push for promotion.

Boss Simon Clifford, who took him to St Mary's during his brief spell at the south coast club, has brought him back to the Genix Healthcare Stadium saying the youngster never got the chance he deserved.

Speaking to Garforth Town's official club website, he said: "I took him to Southampton because potentially he is a Championship or Premiership player.

"But, for the minute, after what has happened I am not going to let anyone treat him unfairly again, and so he is happy, he is back with me and we will have a think and decide what he does next.

"He is only 21 and has all the potential in the world but some of the clubs that have an interest in him in Yorkshire, the Bradfords and Huddersfields, I firmly believe he could do a bit better."

Pitch Renovation Gets Player Praises

3rd August, 2006

Last Saturday saw the first game on Garforth Town's newly renovated pitch.

Head Groundsman Rich Cale and a team of volunteers at the Club have spent the summer getting the pitch ready for the new season.

Over 5,000 has been spent on the rotivation of compacted areas, new top-soil, re-seeding of the whole pitch, specialist feeding, new goals, nets and much more.

Club Captain Brett Renshaw commented after the team's match against Ossett Town: "The pitch is looking in great condition.

"Considering the lack of rain this summer and the poor condition the pitch ended up in at the back end of last season, Richard and the team have worked miracles."

Newly-appointed General Manager Chris Sharman said: "A big focus for me and the team when I came in to post was the pitch.

"With Simon's desire to play quality football and gain promotion this season, we had to make sure there was good investment in the pitch to ensure the team can play attractive and flowing football as the fans both deserve and expect."

Brazil Star Wows Them At Garforth

30th July, 2006

It really is like watching Brazil at Garforth Town these days, according to World Cup-winning legend Carlos Alberto.

The victorious 1970 captain, who scored one of the all-time great goals in the Mexico final, has followed compatriots Socrates and Careca in throwing his support behind the NCEL club owned by Brazilian Soccer Schools guru Simon Clifford.

Alberto, 62, coached the Miners on Tuesday and was in the dugout for yesterday's 3-1 defeat to Ossett Albion.

He told The Non-League Paper: "I've spent a beautiful week here, working with the Brazilian Soccer School kids and the Garforth players.

"I should have flown home on Friday, but wanted to stay and see that they have taken what I have coached into the match.

"There are differences between the English and Brazilian players, but I like the level I have seen over here.

"I have tried to pass on the experiences I have had in football, and they have impressed me greatly."
