The club are now an FA Charter Standard club and have teams covering five different age groups with over 80 children accessing our training groups every week. In addition there is an open age group for those over the age of 16 who wish to participate. The club are also looking to start a veterans team.
Mighty Dragons under 8s are made up of 2 teams. The Blacks - Zerub, Joseph, Jack, Dylan, Harry, Scott, Charlie and Joshua have been playing together for two years and are coached by Catherine Hall and Darrell Dobson.
The Yellow's - Delvon, Thomas, Ben, Shane, Joe, Dean, Sonny and Joseph are coached by Kieron Crossan and are a new team, who have recently started playing and are showing a lot of promise. Both teams are highly spirited and very passionate about the game.
Win, lose or draw, the boys come off the pitch smiling. They all share an amazing bond and very welcoming of new additions into the Dragons Den.
