The Team

We are looking forward to our first competitive season of football this year and will be playing in Division 1 of the suffolk youth league. As a squad we hope to build on last seasons excellent performances that included a semi final appearance in the cup, and a season that only saw us lose just one league game . Most of the squad have stuck together for another season and I'm sure the new players brought in will add to our impressive team spirit.

This season will see our side head off to Holland in the summer for the annual Dutch exchange weekend between Felixstowe and Quintus, most of the boys have been looking forward to this for nearly 6 years now and cant quite believe its nearly upon us.
