Now going into the 9th year as U15s the team has had a lot of success in the WJYL and over summer tournaments.
Always competing in the top two couple of groups / divisions the boys have had always been playing high standard Sunday league football….. The boys took just a few short months to win their first league title.
Over the years they’ve gone on to winning WJYL titles each year, X5 times bustlehome winter & summer tournament winners, Grassroots Trophy winners, Wyrley Juniors tournament, Pelsall among a few others.
The squad has had a steady number of familiar faces over the years with Ollie Powell (Captain) and Lucas Pearson (vice captain) amassing over 500+ games each…… Not to mention various other players the likes of Kyle, Bobby, Jacob being with the team for 3/4/5 years. There’s a general culture that tends to keep players sticking around for long term tenures.
Few of the boys have gone onto play academy football & one gaining international recognition.
It’s safe to say that this team and group have been a blast to work with over the years and hopefully some continue on further after the eventual 2023/24 season ends their junior adventure.
