An enthusiastic group of footballers (boys and girls) from Reception (statutory school age) to Year 4 meets on Saturday mornings from 10.00 – 11.00 during term time at the field in Polhill Avenue next to St. John Rigby School. This is run entirely by volunteers on behalf of the P.T.A. and is always looking for new players and more volunteers to help.
