Football / Netball Team 2018-19 Season


Dear Parent/Carer,

Congratulations, your son/daughter has been selected to represent Ibstock Community College in the football/netball team, competing in the North West Leicestershire League.  Home Football matches are played at Ashby Road playing field (Ibstock Junior Football Club LE67 6HA) near to Melbourne Road off the double roundabout. Parents need to pick up footballers from Ashby Road (not school). Home netball matches are played at the College on the All Weather pitch.  Footballers will have some additional cup games this year too, dates to be confirmed. Parents are welcome to watch and support the team.


Expectations of Players and Extra Information

Check every Monday morning if you have been selected for that week’s match with your manager/teacher.

Please tick if you can play, or cross if you cannot. We do not want to have to chase students for an answer when we can give another student a chance. Additionally, players should state whether they are being picked up from an away match or returning to College on the team list in the PE/Leisure corridor. Parents/Guardians are welcome to watch the matches.

Boys’ please bring boots, shin pads, red PE t-shirt, black shorts and red socks.

Girl’s should wear their College PE kit and trainers. A bib will be provided with their position of play. Everyone should bring plenty of water to drink.

We are asking for a £3 contribution towards bus travel for each away match, this can be paid electronically via parent pay. If you encounter any issues making the payment please email

For home matches the footballers get changed at College then walk up (please bring alternative footwear) as a full team to the pitches up the road. Students do not leave until all their team is ready.

Footballers should help to roll the goal posts out and return them to their original place at the end of the match.

For home matches netballers should help to carry and set up netball posts; ensure the match netball is pumped up and welcome the away team.

Matches usually start by 4pm and are finished shortly after 5pm, returning from away matches between 5.45-6.00pm.

Occasionally due to the distance of the fixture or the lack of light we may have to leave lesson 5 early anytime between 3.10pm up to as early as 2.45pm to finish before 5pm.

Football teams: year 7 is 9 a side. Year 8 and 9 teams play 11 a side home and away.

Yours Sincerely

Mr Pilcher                                                                                             Miss Rhodes

PE Teacher / Football Coordinator                                                   PE Teacher / Netball Coordinator
