Mr Stanek said: “We have a lot of experience because we have played football since we were kids. We now trying to pass our knowledge and our passion to the younger generation.

“At the moment we are looking for kids for the younger team under 8, mainly year 3 at school, and the older team, Year 8, i.e. under 14.”

“We are a very family and friendly team. We have good coaches with a football background and are an advanced team – lost only four games in 2023/24.

“We’re a great little team! We’re going up from five to seven-a-side next season so need a couple of extra players.”
