A holistic qualification encompassing sports nutrition, physio, anatomy and psychology alongside coaching or refereeing badges from the FA and RFU offers graduates a range of exits routes in which to pursue their careers beyond the Academy. Based at Magnus CofE Academy, students will share their week between the school and either the Newark Rugby Club or the 3G pitches at the brand-new YMCA Sports village set to open in time for the start of the Academic year. Following three trials, the football programme is already over half-full. Demand is high as there is nothing else like the initiative in the local area. The final trial date before the Academy starts in September 2018 is Friday 24th August, 10am at Magnus Academy. Students must contact either Kate or Natalia to reserve their place.

Blues in Farnsfield

Lovers of authentic southern USA blues are in for a treat when Delta Moon visit Farnsfield Village Centre on Saturday 8th September as part of their latest European tour. The band originated in Inman Park, Atlanta, Georgia some twenty years ago when co founders Mark Johnson and Tom Gray started playing slide guitar together. They were then joined by Franher Joseph on bass and Vic Stafford on drums and Delta Moon was formed. The name Delta Moon came to Mark whilst on a pilgrimage to Muddy Waters' cabin near Clarksdale, Mississippi, when a gigantic full moon came over the highway. They have won many prestigious awards including the International Blues Challenge in Memphis and have since gone on to play regularly throughout the USA and have toured extensively across the globe. Their music is best described as having "great grooves, thought provoking lyrics, infectious hooks, sweet guitar work and mountains of superb tone..." Tickets are on sale now priced at £12 from Bruce on 01623 883096 or at banddmcdowall@btinternet.com
