They are a family friendly club in only their second season and have already attained the FA Charter Standard award, an accreditation awarded to clubs rigorously adjudged to be well-run and sustainable – and which prioritise child protection, quality coaching and implementation of the Respect programme.

They currently run three teams, providing a fun, friendly and enjoyable football environment for around 35 local children aged from 5 to 10.

Any children currently aged 4 and 5 are welcome to join and be part of their new teams which will start up in the Spring.

Details will be posted on their Facebook page nearer the time.
