Under 9s 1996 ~ under 16s 2003/04

Thanks to all of forty plus lads who played for us between 1996 and 2004, during which time we've had a mixture of mostly memorable and a few not so memorable moments. Whilst for most of the eight years we were a mid table outfit, we were usually capable of giving the best teams in our age group a run for their money. Over the period we actually beat every team we played at some stage (except for the all conquering Huncoat).

Special thanks go to Jim Green for help in training and running the line on numerous occasions, Ian Nugent for taking down the nets for donkey's years......regardless of the weather conditions, and Graeme Monk for his help over a number of seasons. Particular recognition also goes to our long service players...Andy Green, Danny Flynn, Andy Hext, Ben Smith, James Robinson, Karl Andrews, Jack Brown, Peter Nugent and Jason Sharples (partly with Lewy's team).

Good luck to you all for the future and best wishes from Mark Pickup and Brian Smith.

PS...do you recognise the background????
