Here is The report given by Mike Ward at the AGM on 25th April 2017 regarding Senior Football

At the start of the season NMLFC merged with Shield FC and entered the Southampton Saturday Football League playing in Junior 3. Tony Roles is the Manager and his wife Lisa took on the role of club Secretary John Barrett was elected to the committee. In addition to the new Saturday team our Sunday side entered a Reserve team in Sunday morning league playing in Junior 4. We also invited Romsey Girls under 15 side to play their home games at Landford on Saturday mornings.
We have had some local lads playing in the Saturday and Sunday teams but we still cannot recruit enough local lads to have a truly Village team again.
Results for all teams have been mixed but the Sunday first team are 2nd in their league and are fighting to win the league. The girls I believe are near the top of their league and need to win their remaining matches to give them a chance to finish top. The Saturday side have been disappointing and will be relegated although they did reach a cup semi- final. The Sunday Reserves are now mid table after a late season revival.
Pre season games started in early July and by the time the final game is played on 20th May we would have hosted over 70 games at the ground which equates to over 2000 players, officials and supporters enjoying our facilities.
Obviously this significant increase in activity has both positive and negative effect on the running of the club.
On the positive side we are fulfilling our obligation to the funders of our superb clubhouse in that we are providing grass root football to both junior and senior players both male and female. All teams pay for the use of the pitch and this allows the football club to invest in the upkeep improvement and maintenance of the facility.
On the downside the increased use of the pitch has meant that the cost of keeping the pitch in good condition has increased significantly. We have tried unsuccessfully to use Landford Rec to relieve the pressure on our pitch but that was refused by the parish council. Hopefully next year with a new PC we will get the permission.
The pitch was reseeded at the beginning of April at a cost of £600.00, thanks to Jono Smales for giving his time and machinery to carry out this job. Unfortunately the weather has not been kind and we desperately need rain to germinate the seed. We may have to do some more selective seeding in the Autumn.
In conclusion I have been proud to show off our new clubhouse to all the visitors we have had during our first full season. However I am somewhat saddened that there still does not seem to be enough footballers in the village to have a team that is truly local. Hopefully this will in time change.
