Under 8 2016/17

The team currently play in SYFL League Deben and Orwell as the Reds and Whites.

The boys have been playing friendlies and Tournaments for over a year now and have been improving month on month. Some of the boys are now training at Academies such as Ipswich Town and Norwich City after being spotted at local tournaments.

They are a lovely group who work hard but also we have fun during the training sessions and have most importantly become good friends. We have no stars in the team all the boys win draw or lose as a team and support each other whatever the result.

We are lucky that we have very supportive parents who travel round the Counties with the boys to games and Tournaments and bring them every week to training. Without their support we would not have the team spirit that we currently have within the group
