As the season has now come to a close, Steelers FC are actively looking to strengthen our small squad ahead of the upcoming season in Division 2.
As previously mentioned, our current goalkeeper (Kerry Moralee) has hung up his gloves due to personal commitments, so a new goalkeeper is our priority at this moment in time.
Any player that wishes to speak to the Gaffer or fancies coming along to pre season training, please get in touch with us via the website (links to the left) or via our twitter account.
The Season Ends...
A hectic last week of football saw Steelers progress through the Semi Final of the Aged Miners Trophy last Sunday, before lifting the cup after beating rivals The Grove 1-0 in the final only 4 days later.
With 2 tough league games thrown in as well, Steelers unfortunately ended our run of 4 games in 7 days with defeat at the hands of the Horse and Groom, which sadly cost us the league title and the lads have had to settle for second place.
All in all though it has been a great first year in the CSL for a club that was very close to folding only 12 months ago. With promotion our only aim, we have surpassed expectations and picked up 2 hard fought Cups along the way.
Its now time for the lads to get a few weeks well earned rest before setting our sights on a big pre season and our upcoming year in Division 2!
Gaffer Wilf Moralee has steered his new look Steelers squad to promotion in our first season in the Consett Sunday League. And with 2 league games left the Championship is in our hands, but lads know there is still a lot of work to do.
Before any more league action though, Steelers are in Semi Final Cup action this Sunday in the Aged Miners Trophy, away to Pelton Crown. There is a sneaky rumour Pelton are putting bait on for the teams after the game which has made a few of our players even more excited for this cup tie!
Kick off is half 10 at Peltons ground, so need a half 9 sharp leave from Langley lads!
See you all there!
