Immingham Pilgrims AFC, has honoured the past with presentation plaques to Dean Blackband the grandson of founder Eric Blackband, Andy Palmer son of our past Life President Colin Palmer, Ben Taylor son of Councillor Len Taylor who supported the club with great enthusiasm.
The plaques are fitted to the new state of the art pavilion building at Roval Drive for all to see for many years, to remind past and present members of those who gave themselves to Immingham Pilgrims AFC.
Chairman Simon Leach believes that Eric, Colin & Len would be so proud of how we have moved on in recent years, however without foundations the growth would not have happened.

Congratulations to Mark Davis from the Club & Dave Jackson from Immingham Town Council, they have secured the £50,000 grant applied for from Wren.
This is the best news possible for the site, although there is still much work to do.
Mark has commented as follows: Quantity Survey on the building estimates £70k approx. It would be nice if when Dave and myself meet with builders & contractors in January to get some estimates for work, that this can be trimmed down or ensure we get full value for money.
We applied for £50k and got the full amount from Wren. ABP £5k, ITC have budgeted around £15k. One Voice paid for plans just under £1k. So the real work now begins, I am sure on your behalf I applaud Mark & Dave for their exhaustive efforts over the past 12 months to obtain this funding and I am sure you will pass your thanks to them in person.

U9's 2014/15 Season
A small time South Bank Club called Immingham Pilgrims U9's, finished a long hard season by winning there first ever Competitive Trophy.
After leading the league for most of the season, on the last night it fell to 4 teams with Pilgrims sat second. All 4 teams played each other tonight, and the lads won and dominated every single game almost without reply.
The last game decided the winner and Pilgrims beat East Hull Saints 6-1, all received a medal and the Cup. A superb long hard season and great effort from the whole squad. All the hard work finally paid off.
One Voice Community Fund
Simon Leach - Chairman of Immingham Pilgrims AFC said:
"We are very grateful to the One Voice Community Fund for their assistance in part-funding a new set of 9-a-side football goals at our new site at Roval Drive, Immingham. Without this funding the club would have had to look towards extensive fundraising.
"It is fantastic that the local area has such an association that can offer their services towards the local community, especially the youth, to work as a partner. We are all very appreciative of Elaine with her committee for funding together with their partnership with ongoing projects we have."It is fantastic that the local area has such an association that can offer their services towards the local community, especially the youth, to work as a partner.

We as a club are saddened to hear of the passing of Councillor Len Taylor.
He was a life long stalwart of Immingham Pilgrims and it was his wish that no flowers be sent for his funeral but that donations be made to the club instead.
We received some donations and are most grateful for this.
Furthermore, we are intending to commemorate Len in some way, within the club, as yet to be discussed.
We, the Immingham Pilgrims wish to extend our sincere condolences to his widow Sue, son Ben and family.
R.I.P. Len from all involved with the club, past and present.
The Immingham Pilgrims home ground of Roval Drive full of footballing Little Stars! What a great feeling to see it all coming together! To achieve this has taken a few years and many man hours by Mark Davis, a Club coach with the Pilgrims.
The reality is looking even better than the dream!
The next step is to improve the Clubhouse and as we are a Community Club, if anyone would like to offer us Sponsorship then please feel free to contact Cath Kelly: firstname.lastname@example.org
Unfortunately the u18s will not have a league to play in this year so we have had to call it a day sadly here is a picture of our cup winning team after the game with the trophy the team was as follows back left to right Tommy Austwick, Jack Cox, Cam Donson, Conner Knox, Arron Revell, Liam Cox, Conner Chester [front row] Ryan Dennis, Jordan Stratton, JonJo Glover, captain Jack Wilson, Micheal Ashworth, Mascot Lloyd Chessman, Myles Hatfeild, Ryan Kitchen.
The cup final turned out to be our last game as a team so no better way to finish as winners I suppose !! I've coached most of these lads since they were 10 so it will be strange come Sunday afternoon and I won't see them anymore it's been hard and frustrating at times but overall very rewarding seeing them develop as players and into young men good luck in the future lads.
Chezzy u18s manager
