They will now go on to play in Division 5 throughout 2016 following their success and recent promotion.
U11’s Saturday team coach, Daniel Saxton comments:
The U11’s have been working extremely hard in their first season together so it’s great to see their efforts paying off with some incredible results.
I’d like to thank Air-IT for their support as sponsors which has been vital in setting up the team and securing the future of junior football at Eastwood CFC.
Everyone at Air-IT is backing the team to build on their success so far and to defend their current position at the top of the table.
Air-IT Marketing Director, Paul Judge says:
We’re delighted to support this fantastic group of youth footballers and are proud to see them representing sporting success in the local community.
We’d like to wish all the players, coaches and supporters all the best with the remainder of the 2015/16 football season.
About Eastwood CFC
Eastwood Community Football Club (ECFC) was established in 2014 following the demise of Eastwood Town FC.
Based at Coronation Park, ECFC became the new residents of the former club’s ground with the aim of creating a pathway for local players of all ages to develop and progress their game to the very highest standards of football.

The club is already well represented by individuals spanning several generations – both on and off the field – with several sides competing in their respective leagues including:
- Senior 1st team
- Senior Reserves
- Senior Sunday team
- Junior U18’s
- Junior U11’s Saturday team
- Junior U11’s Sunday team
- Junior U8’s
Eastwood CFC also partners with Nottingham Forest FC to deliver a high quality soccer school and with Notts County Ladies Development Squad to provide opportunities for as many ages, sexes and backgrounds as possible.
And there’s also opportunity for the juniors to aspire and succeed to join Eastwood CFC’s seniors in the future.

Community is core
But it’s not just about the sport.
Eastwood CFC also aim to create an environment for the local community and public to use the facilities as a hub to bring together different groups of people from the area in their on site function rooms.
Part of their sustainability vision, the facilities are key to supporting the long term future of the club which aims to expand over the next 10 years.
This will include implementing a progressive football development programme in order to increase the amount of players and teams involved and associated with ECFC.
Good luck U11’s!
We’d like to wish everyone at Eastwood CFC all the very best in their upcoming fixtures and a special mention of good luck to our unbeaten U11’s Saturday side.
