Thank you to the Club committee and over 150 supporters that cheered us on, a great evening for this great Club.
This has been a brilliant effort from a team in its first season of adult football formed from the under 18 Reds last season, even with additions added we still average 20 years of age.
This team were also league champions so the Double makes a great first season in Adult football and a great bunch of lads.
