Castle View Enterprise Academy have recently dedicated a new Remembrance Wood in honour of pupils and staff of the school who have lost their lives.  The wood is in an area which is at the back of the 3G facility.  This was officially opened on remembrance day last week, in a ceremony conducted by our very own cadets and involved numerous dignitaries planting trees and laying personal memorial crosses.  Unfortunately on Saturday 12th November, our newly dedicated Remembrance Wood, was subjected to tasteless vandalism.   Tree saplings were uprooted from their supports and placed in the long jump pit and strewn across the grass.  Even worse still, some of the memorial crosses that were laid by staff and veterans - in honour of family members and friends who had sacrificed their lives for this country – have been removed.  This is abhorrent behaviour. 

It has been reported that a group of children were seen in and around this area, whilst the Russell Foster games were on.  We are currently reviewing CCTV footage from around the site in order to identify the culprits.  Once identified the police will be notified and we will be pursuing action on the basis of outraging public decency.  Any child identified will be banned from this site and their current school notified.  If you have any information which may assist our investigations then please contact the school on 0191 594 6330 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Can we ask that you assist us in preserving this area, and allowing the wood to grow and mature; by not letting children run around or play in the area where it is.

The new winter leagues kicked off last Saturday with lots of football played and enjoyed by a large number of teams. May I take this opportunity to get messages out relayed from your league and facility host’s?

Prior to match days check your web site to confirm your venue and kick off times.
Teams arrive in plenty of time to register your team, pay your referee’s fees, pick up your necessary paperwork and be ready to kick off on time on your correct pitch allocated.
Please park your vehicle in places and spaces provided DO NOT cause traffic jams.
Keep off the pitches. Pitches are for players and coaches only. Maximum 2 coaches only.
No dogs allowed.
No smoking.
Please take your litter home.

Despite a number of courses recently run by the Durham County FA we the Russell Foster Youth Leagues still have a shortage of referees to officiate our youth games.
Referees are required for our mini soccer, 9v9, and 11 a side games. Anyone who can help to referee games please contact the league secretary Mick Clark.
0191 5842120 or 07712192645 Or you can email Mick This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
