Sports Shorts Dececmber 11th
A stunning turn-out at training last week all-but confirmed the Super Spuds will field an under 18s team for the first time in about a decade when the 2020 season kicks off.
Almost 40 players got stuck in at pre-season training on Thursday and of those more than half were under 18s players.
There were also a few senior men’s players and women’s leaguetag players in attendance, but they were outdone by the enthusiastic youngsters.
This week training will start at 6.15pm on Thursday at the Sports Complex.
The club’s sponsorship drive is also in full swing. Any business owners who would like their brand to feature on the team uniform need to contact the club as soon as
possible via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through the committee.
