Chelsea star Levi Colwill is now a football director. In a decision that has been brandished as a homecoming for the football star, Colwill has joined Southampton-based outfit Sholing FC as an associate director.

His new role with the lower division side means he will actively contribute to the club’s community-based projects in Southampton.

For context purposes, Colwill’s directorship role with Sholing FC has been described by the media as a necessary homecoming because he was born and brought up in the club’s suburb, where the club is based.

Moreover, his uncles, Byron and Barry Mason, reportedly played for the club back in 2014 with little Colwill serving as a child mascot before his gigantic Premier League career. Sources close to the player revealed he has met with the representatives of the club to brainstorm on the club’s projects and offer assistance where necessary.

While the Chelsea star is expected to lend a helping hand to Sholing FC’s community project to expand the club’s support base, he is also set to launch his project, targeted at charity work and community development. Levi Colwill reportedly aims to achieve this by launching his foundation to build football schools and provide access to more Southampton kids to train and possibly take up a career in football.

Such measures will provide the neccesary groundwork for both the growth of the community and the Football Club. Colwill’s intervention is also said to be a big leverage for the club financially.

Sholing FC

Sholing FC is an English Football Club based in Sholing, England. Their home ground is the Imperial Homes Stadium in Sholing. The club was originally founded as Vosper Thornycroft in 1960.

They reportedly changed their name from Vosper Thornycroft to Sholing FC in 2010 after 50 years of creation. The decision to change the name was linked to the demise of the parent company, the Vosper Thornycroft Group, which initially ran the club.

The demise of the Thornycroft Group took a heavy toll on the club financially, but the change of name and rebranding proved crucial in winning the support of the Southampton locals, who are now the backbone of the outfit.

Currently plying their trade in the lower tier of the English division, the club have recorded key milestones in its history. They finished second in the Southern League Division One South and West in the 2010-11 season.

In the 2020-21 season, they recorded their best FA Cup performance, reaching the fourth qualifying round. In the 2019-20 season, they reached the first round of the FA Trophy – a football competition, organized by the FA, and played by semi-professional football clubs.

They also won the FA Vase – another domestic club competition by the FA for teams in the 9th and 10th divisions in the English Football League System.

Sholing FC major Honors

Despite languishing down the rungs of the English Football System, Sholing FC have shown enough prospects with their well-decorated trophy room. Their major club honors and laurels include the 2014 FA Vase Cup, the 2014 and 2019 Wessex League Premier Division titles, the 2001 and 2004 Hampshire Premier League titles, and 2004 and 2017 Wessex League Cup. They have also won Hampshire Benevolent Cup two times in 2020 and 2021.
