Quorn Reserves exited the Challenge Trophy 2-4 on aggregate but felt aggrieved at two penalty decisions that the Referee got wrong, with Quorn the better side and leading 1 nil, a dive and squeal in the box by the Tamworth striker was enough to earn a leveller from the spot, minutes later Chris Baker was barged in the back at the other end but the Referee deemed it was a fair barge and waived play on. Quorn squandered two great chances that would have seen the tie level before the Tamworth penalty and once that was given, there was only going to be one winner. Quorn did re-take the lead through Josh Gwekwerere's 2nd great finish of the night but sadly it wasn't enough.15/04/2013

Quorn fc are delighted to announce the appointment of the New Management team of Tommy Brookbanks and Mark Harvey. Tommy spent 14 happy and successful years at Carlton Town before taking the reins at Hucknall Town in May 2010. Following changes at boardroom level early this season, Tommy stood down with the club occupying a play-off spot on a zero budget. However his services were soon in demand and he accepted the Managers role at Stamford, finishing the season in a very respectable 7th place. Mark has Managerial experience in his own right with stints at Long Eaton United and Borrowash Victoria before joining up with Tommy at Hucknall Town.
The Pair have issued the following Statement on the dawn of a new era for the Club.
“We are delighted to arrive at Quorn. A club that in our opinion is a sleeping giant in non-league football, with facilities that are second to none at this level. A quick walk around the ground was enough to not only convince us that this was where we wanted to be, it actually excited us about being here. The club behind the scenes is extremely well run, and we intend to extend that on to the playing side as well. It's testament to how great the club is, that despite a difficult season last year, when we met earlier this week with the existing players, everyone was very keen to continue at the club. As far as we are concerned the new season has already started, we are now working flat out to assemble our back room staff, and to bring in a couple of lads in areas we feel we need to strengthen, to compliment the players we already have at the club.”
“We can't wait for the new season to arrive, and get Quorn back at the right end of the table challenging for honours. We would like to extend our thanks to Stuart and the Committee for giving us the chance to work at such a great club, and hope to repay their faith with silverware at the end of the season, one thing that is certain, we won't rest until we have done so.”

Further news will be posted as and when we receive it. Previously with Barwell fc, Chris has been a real asset since joining Quorn and last week took the Captains role for the Westerby Cup game against Hinckley United. Everybody at Quorn fc wishes Chris a speedy and full recovery.
UPDATED - Chris has undergone tests and scans at the Neurology unit of the QMC and the good news is that the initial worries have been allayed and although Chris has suffered a broken jaw that will need wiring, the prognosis is that he will make a full recovery with no lasting damage. Things like this put everything into perspective and although we will undoubtedly miss Chris’s presence on the field whilst he recovers fully, we are all mightily relieved that Chris is ok.07/02/2012

Quorn came from behind to gain a point from the first competative game of the new season, New signing Sam Leggitt came off the bench to score two late goals after Quorn were reduced to 10 men.13/08/2011
With the Season start only 7 days away, Quorn were hopeful of building on the last two performances and were boosted with Matt Nurse taking his place between the sticks following his midweek scare.
The Home side started brightly enough but conceded a sloppy goal after 12 minutes and never recovered against a St Ives side that played a solid formation throughout.06/08/2011
Mickleover Sports took full advantage of two 2nd half spot kicks to deny a Quorn team that should have been two goals up before the break.
The woodwork came to the rescue of the visitors on more than one occasion in the 2nd period as Quorn exerted pressure in an excellent pre-season fixture.
The game ended prematurely as Matt Nurse was injured in the last minute, receiving a blow to the head and needing extensive treatment for concussion but thankfully, later recovered.02/08/2011
Quorn overcame stubborn resistance from a lively Blackstones side but deservedly went ahead with a powerful header from Skipper Kris Mathews, Kris Nurse blasted home a fine 2nd before former Quorn player Ben Easson notched a late consolation for the hosts.30/07/2011
After a goalless first 45 minutes, Quorn, who fielded only 5 players from when the sides last met in the Westerby Cup Final, succumbed to a 3 goal burst by a Hinckley side that featured former Quorn players Dan Haystead and Tom Byrne.
Quorn still experimenting with the starting line-up were without Ash Robinson, Jay Smedley and Dan Marshall but were pleased to compete in a pretty even first half that saw neither goalkeeper unduly tested. Eight 2nd half changes disrupted the shape of the Home side and Hinckley took full advantage, adapting better with their own changes to fire home 3 goals without reply.23/07/2011
Shaun Miller showed why teams from higher in the pro game are looking at him; Miller bagged a nap hand as Crewe put Quorn to the sword. The home side suffered a blow before the game when Matt Nurse dropped out through injury, it was left to young keeper Grant Wright to face the firing line as Dario Gradi brought his first choice team to Farley Way.
Quorn started brightly enough but a ball over the top saw Miller scamper clear and finish with aplomb with the home side waiting for an offside decision that never came. Miller then notched numbers 2 and 3 in rapid succession as Quorn struggled to cope with the blistering pace of the Crewe attacks. Quorn were further hampered with the loss of Jay Smedley with a hamstring problem.
Miller made it four before Ashley Westwood and Danny Shelley making it 6 before the break with another ball over the top that caught out the Home defence , it wasn’t completely 1 way traffic with Kris Nurse twice going close for Quorn. After the break Byron Moore added the seventh and Miller completed his tally with his fifth and Crewe’s eighth before being replace by Jason Oswell who promptly added the ninth. Quorn to their credit never gave up and finally got the consolation goal when Tom Weaver forced the ball over the line following great work by Tony Robinson.
Obviously a disapointing scoreline for the home team but given the quality of the opposition the players can still be pleased with their contribution to an entertaining game, the younger players will have gained from it competing very well in the latter stages of the game against the same side that days earlier had beaten Wolves from the Premier League.19/07/2011
The visit of Gary Mills’ York City side looked, on paper at least, a daunting prospect following Tuesday’s heavy defeat by Barwell but this was a vast improvement by the Home side, taking the game to the Conference team and deservedly taking the lead after 15 minutes through new signing Tony Law, who did well to turn and shoot low past startled keeper Michael Ingham.
This shock reverse saw the visitors step up a gear and Matt Nurse was forced into a couple of superb stops before the visitors got back on level terms as Jamie Reed finished smartly after a slick move carved open the Quorn rear-guard. Minutes later a thunderbolt out of the blue by Lance Oyebanjo rocketed in the top corner to put his side ahead. Quorn regrouped and went close to snatching an equaliser but went to the break still behind.
Both teams ran the changes and play became a bit disjointed but it was the visitors who increased their lead when Jason Walker turned smartly and fired low through a crowd of players just on the hour. Quorn worked hard but were unable to make an impression against a well organised York defence, all in all though, Quorn have to be very pleased with a very good performance against their illustrious opponents.16/07/2011
Quorn looked a little ring rusty in the opening 15 minutes and were duly punished for some sloppy defending as last season’s Champions, Barwell raced into a 2-nil lead, Quorn did improve after that and went close to pulling at least a goal back but the visiting defence were in commanding form.
With so many changes after the break, as is expected early pre-season, it was Barwell who slotted back into a rhythm and although Quorn missed a couple of early chances, it was former player Nigel Julien who effectively sealed an accomplished victory for his side with a superb 15 minute hat trick after coming on at half time.12/07/2011
Quorn will host the winners of the FA Cup with Budweiser Extra Preliminary round tie, between Oadby Town and Northampton Spencer, in the preliminary round to be played on Saturday the 3rd of September.

Club Sheffield Fc were the visitors to Farley Way this Saturday and following on from previous collections, Quorn presented the visitors with another bag full of 'Boots For Africa', Sheffield Chairman Richard Timms is pictured receiving the donation from our own Jake Nooney, the total pairs collected by Quorn so far is over 90 pairs. We are proud to support this worthwhile venture initiated by Club Sheffield and wish to thank everyone who has donated boots so far, this is ongoing and anyone who wishes to donate should contact our co-ordinator Jim Simpson. Remember single boots are needed for unfortunate Land-mine victims.
On Monday 17th the FA will be launching Respect F.C. The aim of the club is not to win silverware or secure a Champions League place; its goal will be to unite fans against the ugly side of the beautiful game to create a safe and enjoyable environment in which it can take place and as a winner of one of the FA's inaugural Respect awards last May the Evostik League is giving its support to this initiative and asks all those supporters of clubs in the League who would like to see the poor behaviour, particularly dissent, driven out of the game to join Respect F.C.
Appointing comedian and avid Bristol City fan Mark Watson as Chairman, the Club has been founded through concern from both the top level of the game and the grassroots community around abuse towards referees and poor sideline behaviour. Respect F.C. is not your usual football club; it's a football club made up of people from all walks of life, with one collective goal – to bring Respect back to the game we all love.
For every fan that joins Respect F.C., The FA has pledged to put £1 back into the Respect initiative within grassroots football (up to the value of £50,000). Members of the Club will be able to vote online at www.RespectFootballClub.com to say how this money is used at the end of the 2010 / 2011 season.
Rallying fans to get behind Respect F.C., Chairman Mark Watson has filmed an impassioned plea from the Club's modest headquarters, which features starring roles from former Liverpool captain Neil 'Razor' Ruddock, Portsmouth legend Steve Claridge and Sky Sports commentator Chris Kamara.
Depicting the intolerable bad behaviour of a gobby moron, scenes feature Neil Ruddock ruining a child's birthday party by barking abuse at the children's entertainer and singling out the birthday boy for some special attention for passing the parcel too slowly. Muddied with comedy gold, the film also sees player turned football pundit Steve Claridge donning a Strictly Come Dancing style outfit and dancing across a waterlogged pitch. The rousing closing scenes from the Chairman's speech see Mark Watson in unison with football fans wearing white Respect F.C. scarves and joining mascots from Chelsea, Bristol City, Swansea City, Nottingham Forest, Watford, Fulham, Birmingham City, Sheffield Wednesday, and Millwall to show support for the radical new club.
Respect F.C. is not just about raising awareness; it's much more than that. Everyone who is involved in the game in some way is aware of poor behaviour and knows that – be it towards referees, players or fellow fans – it is wrong. The challenge now is to unite, change people's attitudes and make them realise that verbal and physical abuse are not acceptable in the game.
Respect F.C. Chairman, Mark Watson, said: "We know that it's so much easier to take a stand against poor behaviour if you are not on your own, if you have someone else on your team. Collectively we can stand up to the gobby morons. If you'd like to show the people spoiling our game, what they're up against go to RespectFootballClub.com to join my new football club, Respect F.C., the club with one goal – to rid the game of the gobby morons."
Alex Horne, FA General Secretary, said: "Football fans from all clubs and all leagues have a collective responsibility to let others know that they will not stand for this behaviour from the grassroots of the game up to the international stage. That's why we're asking everyone, to ask everyone, to join the club and together win the match against bad behaviour."
The Evostik League has played its part this season with player dissent down by an impressive margin, Technical Area dismissals down by 80% and player dismissals down by around 20%. Now the League urges its fans to log onto www.RespectFootballClub.com and register their support to unite against the ugly side of football joining the League in its attempts to raise disciplinary standards.17/01/2011
Quorn FC are deeply saddened to announce the Passing of Mavis Turner, much valued Committe Member and the Beloved Wife of Club Chairman Stuart Turner.

Quorn Football Club02/01/2011
John was an active President, a real football man, and most of all a Gentleman. We are all shocked to learn of his passing, and our thoughts and sympathy goes out to all his family.
For many years now Quorn FC have been sponsored by Johns Company name of UNWINS ELECTRICAL and are deeply indebted for John's support and contributions.
There can be no fitter tribute to John than to consider the wonderful sporting legacy he has left behind for the people of Quorn and Leicestershire, having been instrumental alongside Chairman Stuart Turner in helping the Club move from its old Warwick Avenue Ground to the wonderful facilities we enjoy here at Farley Way today.
He will be sadly missed by everyone at our Club
