Oliver King: A True Diamond


Woolton FC is devastated to have to report that another of our junior players has died in dreadful circumstances. 12-year-old Oliver King, a member of the very successful Woolton Diamonds from the age of 4, died from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) during a swimming lesson at King David High School on 2 March 2011.


Ollie was a familiar face to many people from Woolton FC, having been a regular participant in the club’s activities since 2004.  He was a determined player who hated losing but always played with a sense of fun and with a smile on his face.  Ollie’s love of football is probably best summed up by his involvement in the 2010 Liam Costello Woolton Tournament (named after another of our young stars who died tragically in 2007): not content with representing his beloved Diamonds in the inaugural U13 11-a-side competition over the first two days of the event, he also played for them in the U12 competition on the Monday morning and then for his Saturday team, Westpool FC, in the U11 tournament in the afternoon.  It’s worth noting that the last event was the only one in which Ollie was playing against boys of his own age group yet he never looked out of place in any game he played. He also played in the U11 competition despite having suffered the huge disappointment of losing the U12 final on penalties.  That’s the kind of boy the Ollie was.


Woolton FC has not yet decided how we will mark Ollie’s fantastic contribution to the club over the seven short years that he was with us.  We will do so when we have had an opportunity to talk it through with Mark and Joanne, Ollie’s parents, and his brother Ben. We want to be sure that we do something that will stand as a fitting memorial to such a brilliant young man.


Ollie will be never be forgotten by anyone at Woolton FC who knew him.


community club status

Woolton FC have been awarded Charter Standard Community Club status by the FA. The FA Community Club scheme builds upon the foundations of the Charter Standard scheme in placing clubs at the heart of their community. It is the pinnacle of the club development pathway and is awarded to clubs that have a high quality, multi-team set up with excellent social, training and playing opportunities for all. As such Community Club status is one of the truest measures of success for the FA Football Development strategy and is considered by the FA to be the ultimate goal for clubs at grassroots level.

The club is delighted to have received FA Charter Standard Community Club status and the award will assist in bringing the development plan for the club, which includes better all round facilities, to fruition.

The club needs the support of all teams, by way of increased participation, to help make the vision for the future become a reality. Greater support and participation will lead to better facilities.
